Itsy Bitsy Spider

"The itsy bitsy spider went up the water spout. 
Down came the rain, and washed the spider out. 
Up came the sun, and dried up all the rain,
and the itsy bitsy spider went up the spout again."

Otherworld Paint challenge time again. July's theme is: "If You Go Down to the Woods" and is about painting at least on model from the wilderness range.

I took a chance this time and went for those limited edition spiders, that I got in my latest Otherworld Miniatures purchase. Richard Scott was offering a set of 4 unreleased/yet to be released large Spiders for those voucher holders that would hold back making a voucher purchase and placed an old fashion money order instead. That was one of those offers I really couldn't refuse? So cancelled my plan voucher purchase and replaced it with an order for the most wanted new releases and got myself a set of these. Had already planned doing the common large Spiders for this one, but I actually like these slightly better and decided doing them instead. Challenge says, it has to be models from the Wilderness range - so might get ruled out for entering these, but who really cares? After all, another awesome batch of Otherworld's are now painted and ready for being used  ;-)

Otherworld: Large Spiders (Limited Edition)

All painted in Black Widow inspired colour scheme. Should probably have based them on some woodland scenery bases rather than these dungeon ones (due to the challenge theme) - but I really like these 40mm round DS dungeon scenery resin bases from Fenris Games - and the spiders seems almost like sculpted on them, so could resist using them.
