Yeah, it makes me wish the kraken tentacles were sold separately.  Mine are presently dedicated for a swamp monster, but should I need the Kraken, I can pop them off and glue them back on that fishy critter's face.  Similarly, I've got an alternate base for my Cthulhu ... HEAD.  (That is, the Cthulhu head on its own makes a passable Swamp Horror for Iron Kingdoms RPG, but I normally keep the thing on Cthulhu's body where it belongs.)

 

Here's my own giant swamp monster encounter.  I like the Frogmeister's presentation better.  My only defense was that it was a rush job, since the PCs skipped over two dungeons in my campaign and reached my swamp dungeon a whole month earlier than I had planned.  If I'd used METAL bases (washers, I guess), I might've been able to get away with smaller bases and one tentacle per base, but the plastic rounds were all I had on hand of suitable size at the time (and anything smaller wasn't stable enough, since the tentacles tended to topple over).

Nice work, oh your Frogness!

In searching for a monster I couldn't remember the name of I noticed the 02664 phase cat was listed as having boneyard options.  Sho' nuff, you can by sprues with 2 tentacles for just .98 cents.  Not sure if they're the size you want, but that's a pretty cheap option if you don't have some Bones to butcher.

I have used ... Many 20 of those tentacles on projects.  I love 'em.

      First post.   
      Hellboy (Wizard of Oz Lion) 50312.   Of course it's Hellboy, down to the shaved horns!  The tentacles are from plastic Goloroth shark thing (77343) and Desert thing (91008) around the leg
      Base is Tamiya brick wall and Fimo polymer clay

      The West, both Wild and Weird, was a diverse place! Apache tribes featured prominently in history and in fiction, but not on my shelves...until now!
      Artizan has some good Wild West figures, and a 3-pack of Apache characters suited my purposes perfectly. 

      Especially this guy: 

      What a great face. So much caution, circumspection, and tired-of-this-bullbroccoli-ness. 
      More: 


      Here are the other two, warriors and men of renown. Gave them a little more color and pattern, as well as the classic line across the face. 

      More:
       

      And because Deadlands monsters are literally made for Weird West settings and these fellows are clearly urging caution regarding SOMETHING, here is Some Thing. A Desert Thing, Bones version (91008). It's delightfully horrid. You want no part of this Thing. Painting the horrible slick teeth and gums of the inner jaw was a treat.

      This is going to be one of the most ambitious projects I've ever attempted, so I thought making a WIP thread would be a good idea.   If everything goes well, I plan to enter this beastie at ReaperCon this year, so fingers crossed!
       
      This is an idea I've had bouncing around in my head for awhile, and started gathering materials for it last year.
       
      My plan is to take this lovely critter:

       
      and rather than using the shipwreck as a base, use half of one of these:

       
      and paint the Kraken to look all spacey and such.
       
      So! To that end, I now have one of these!

       
      I'll just be using the top half for the base, though:

       
      Which means that the bottom hemisphere is available for...testing.
       

       
      Huzzah!

      I like to think of this as an "all-that-can-eat-you meal", best prepared deep fried.  :-)
       

       

       
      This beastie was very challenging to paint, and all throughout I kept trying to figure out what I would do for a base.  The shipwreck is awesome, but it left the tentacles so close to the tabletop that I felt it might make play challenging, assuming we ever use it, so I figured it needed some seafloor and weeds.
