Quite some time ago I picked up some foamclay from The Range with vague ideas of using it to make terrain with but after a bit of experimenting, I decided to create a cheap alien force for my Inquisitorial agents to be menaced by!
|Three Shamblers accompany the Gorgon and a Shoggoth|
Polypps are creatures of the Warp that found themselves trapped on the material plain when Warpspace was finally tamed by the combined technological might of the Mechanicus some five millennia ago. Many warp entities have had to come up with some way of surviving in our reality and the Polypp do so by invading host creatures bodies and slowly mutating them to the bizarre cankerous creatures that they now appear.
|A swarm of Beholders|
Beholders provide Polypps with a ranged weapon using their strange eye lens to blast opponents with concentrated bio laser fire.

I rather like how they turned out and plan on adding a few more subspecies to the mix with the remaining packs I have but it's amazing what fascinating alien creatures one can make with some cheap clay and a few beads.
I gave them a black prime followed by some green and purple drybrushing before picking out the eyes in light turquoise and purples. The eyes were given a gloss varnish to make them a bit more gribbly and lo and behold, I have a new force which cost about £2.00 and took about an hour and a half to build and paint!
I'll need to get my battle report sorted for tomorrows update but until then, All the best!
