Hydralisk Head

I've been holding off publishing anything about this project because I had originally intended to build a full-size monster Zerg (a race in the StarCraft video-game universe) which would have been man-sized. Although I am sticking to the scale, the project has been down-sized to a trophy head. This is still a large construction in that you probably wouldn't put it on your coffee table.

I can imagine some Terran officer keeping this trophy in his spacious office to impress visitors  and to remind himself of the threat that the Zerg pose for mankind:

 "Ah, yes, the Zerg. This particular specimen met its end at the muzzle of my Gauss rifle on Antiga Prime back when I was still a junior officer. Although it took my arm, I took its head! Pour yourself a drink, my friend, and make yourself comfortable while I tell you all about it."

The Plan

Oh, and the full-size figure idea isn't gone, just off the table for now.

Much more to come.

  1. This looks like it's going to be fun. I'll make sure to follow along!

  2. Hi :)
    finally someone had the same idea as I. Have a good working!

    This is what I built:

    but in my opinion, the Hydralisk is taller than you think. This is what I used as a reference:

    It´s from the SC2 realtime cinematics. You can open it in the editor. :)


  3. Wow, Kaleb, you have done amazing work; and full-scale too! That's going to make a wonderful wall-mount for some space-marine bar! My hydralisk will be a scaled-down, full-body, "old-school" version, standing about man-height. Thanks for the links, and keep up the excellent work! I hope to see more of your creatures in future.
