Deep in a dark dungeon, a party of adventurers pauses to survey the dim corridor stretching in front of them. Even in the flickering glow of their torches, the way appears clear and inviting. Cautiously they move forward in search of treasure. A soundless vibration moves through the passage, a too brief warning… Suddenly, the surface of the corridor cracks apart, flat floor stones shifting and rising. A large creature bursts from beneath the floor of the corridor, scattering stone and dirt in all directions! Rearing above the adventurers’ heads, the giant cavern worm senses its prey. Its large mouth opens to reveal rows of sharp fangs that can impale its prey and draw the unfortunate victim into the creature’s stomach.
I chose to paint the monster
in grub-like colors. Not unlike some of the small grubs that inhabit our lawns, feeding on the tender roots of grass.
To give the impression of the creature
rising from a dungeon corridor
, I crafted a base with flat floor stones being pushed up and falling away at all angles. I also added soil and rocks sliding down the worm’s sides as it rises above the floor.
provides a great large monster
to confront the player characters
in a fantasy role-playing encounter
. It could also be used in a horror
or science fiction scenario
. The figure stands 2-3/4 inches (70 mm) so it towers over the average 25-28 mm scale miniatures
. The base measures 2 inches (50 mm) across.
