I have a neat Kraken model from PP's Cryx and thought recently that it was wasting away on the shelves (can't sell it, it was a wedding present from a friend) and thought to converse it into something of Eldar notion (I play Ynnari with strong DE style so any model is game basically). Any of you have suggestions? The model is quite huge, it's around a curled-up Wraithknight. Here is a pic for reference:

He'd be around 4 Wraith Lords with it's size. ;D I was thinking more around Wraithknight, but I have no idea what legs to get for him. The hind legs, the smaller ones are detachable.

I say go Wraithknight.

keep the existing legs, but slice off the feet where they actually touch the floor. From theres, long tentacle legs.

Basically like one of these:


(War Of The Worlds tripod)

But obviously with more legs.

I was considering it, but the model is kinda heavy so it might be hard to find good leg support.

Not necessarily!

use a really good, solid wire or rod. The sort you need a saw (probably mechanical) to cut, and pliers to bend. Make them STRONG, and pinned into the base, and they'll hold.

OR, lots of legs! Just keep adding tentacle legs until it stands!
