Here we are then with the arms on. I wanted the Heat Ray to not really be pointed at anything and the other tentacle flailing around as in some of the illustrations.
As i said before, i have something else in mind for the diorama:
One of THE strongest images for me from the book is how you can have a peaceful, sedate, normal English countryside scene with this monstrous aline thing striding across it so matter of factly.
And that's what i'm planning on - the Tripod walking though fields, the cows etc not bothered by the strangeness of the scene.
