How much of the model is the Spider?

Recommended Posts

So I have yet to start to paint my Relthoza and I have run into a bit of an issue.  It seems like some of the models are not fully armored mainly the medium walkers.  

 

For painting reasons I'm trying to work out what are the areas that are spider vs spider tech/armor.  I noticed the legs and abdomen seem to be the obvious areas that are not armored.  

 

What other parts of these models are exposed spider vs Relthoza tech?

To me it appeared that they mediums have a backplate attached which the gun is mounted. That is what I thought to be the only tech on the mediums. The support spider I did the hard angled parts along the head and the tube as tech. The rest was spider. My spiders are in my gallery if you want to look and see what I did. All spider bits are black with some orange. The tech bits are the pearlized green, blue, and orange.

id actually like to know exactly what an official relthozan looks like or at least as said how much of the models is an actual relthozan just to compare it to the other species XD because if those things are the actual size of a relthozan then good lord those are terrifying....those things BOARD YOU in armada holy hell no wonder they have such good AP lol

Yeah, the relthozan medium walkers are basically full-grown warriors with a backplate (for tech) and weapon grafted on.

Infantry and light walkers are larvae/pupae respectively placed in the appropriate size of battlesuit.

The heavy walkers are basically the relthozan version of an iron man suit.

The Leviathan is pretty much their version of the hulkbuster suit.

The medium support walkers and tank destroyers are GM warriors with appropriate things grafted on.

hmmm id like someone from spartan to verify that because that some scary stuff right there XD also the smaller stuff are drones so i thought they are just robots controlled by the towers not operated =/ wouldnt make sense to put pupae and larvae into a suit that isnt even controlled by the pilot (not that they could possibly be if they are indeed pupae and larvae)

Well, how about the following:

Light Walkers (description from the Leviathan Helix): "These warriors are far down the pupation-path to becoming a fully-fledged Rethozan warrior, but are specially chosen to escort the Leviathan as they have been seen to exhibit a higher degree of aggression than normal pupates at the same level of development."

 

That said, I'm sure someone from Spartan would be happy to confirm this.
