If the cultists weren't enough to break my hobby spirits, then these Spiders have totally finished me off. I was really excited to get these and at £66 for 6 models it was a bit of a luxury treat. However upon opening the boxes I was truly disappointed with the small delicate models. The legs have hardly any contact areas and were a nightmare to assemble. I had to add lots of greenstuff and push the legs into that and then resculpt.

I tried to regain some enthusiasm for the project by making scenic Mirkwood bases. I sculpted roots, logs and branches and added some rocks. Then I realised I paid £66 for something and I'm trying to make it interesting. Disenchanted, I shelved the project and I'm now on hobby hiatus for the foreseeable future. See you soon!
