I’ve got Crabs


Calm down ladies, I have Crab-Men, giant ones.

From Alternative Armies.

They come as resin figures with the arms separate. I looked at them and thought I could glue them together, and then decided it’d be better if they were pinned and glued given the size and weight of the arms, so off they went to Byakhee Richard.

Very simple to paint.

Reminded me of a time when my grandparents took me down to Poole harbour where the extended family had fishing boats and they collected a box of crabs and drove back home. An open box, on the back seat next to me. And these weren’t the tiddlers you get on beaches but the full dinner plate sized jobs. ALIVE, and trying to get out, so I had to keep poking them back in to the box. As a 7 year old.

Another more animated one will be finished shortly.

Along with wading through two games’ worth of photos from Saturday that Alan and I did.
