Hi guys, just added the first batch of Molch Vornid War models to my website -- it's the Vornid plantmen, the Ursid bear warriors and the gigantic rock constructs of the Molch, the Defender-constructs.


Also added to the sci fi page are the Molch themselves -- previously added as Eldritch Horrors, this is the reason I actually had PF make them for me! They were inspired by that Star Trek episode with the creature in the box that was so ugly humans could not look at it.

Those emissaries are awesome…

Agreed, the emissaries are very simple, yet very creepy and effective. I might even use these in 28mm as little homunculi of some sort. Nice!

Really neat ideas and great sculpts!

I'm thinking Galaxy Quest here, if the size is right:


Looking good:

The Molch extensions are great. Finally, alien-looking aliens!

Please make these in 28mm! Pretty please!!!

Well, they sort of are in 28mm already. grin

They are any scale you want them to be! Imagine them in 6mm ….

What will be even creepier is when someone paints the whole collection in a similar color and pattern.

khurasanminiatures31 Mar 2011 4:10 p.m. PST

… and then paints the bears in the same colour! Prophecy ….

the rock men remind me of "Hercules versus the Moon Men". The rock beings commanded by the Moon Men had a similar look, but were a little on the static side-being rocks and all.

The Vornids would make dandy Triffids

Triffids with guns!

Here's an idea.

You know the mushroom men you've got in the horror range…if you produced a biological/plant-like heavy weapon, you could use them as crew for some plant-portable artillery to back up the Vornid infantry.

Or you could use them as technicians, engineers, slaves etc operating other devices.

Get sculpting (along with the Hammerhead Karks).

Ursids: very, very silly. WANT. :)

I was thinking that the 'gun' part could be painted as part of the plant. Maybe a stinger?
