Producing 4 - Nurgle Probe

Okay, still on a Nurgle theme, this next project was inspired by the following: the Training Remote from Star Wars A New Hope, strange jellyfish creatures i seem to recall from 2000AD's Rogue Trooper and the "face" is a complete homage to the monster in Space 1999's "Dragons Domain" episode.
Out of the above, its the Rogue Trooper creatures that i'm imagining this fella to be like - a barely sentinent biomass encased in armour that hovers above the battlefield, moving ahead of the troops, spying out the enemy lines and reporting back.
Anyway, on with the building. Above you can see i've finished that part with the addition of the tendrils. I'd made each one out of Green Stuff and, when they'd gone hard, i removed the small piece of clear rod and superglued each in place.
When that was done i inserted a length of sprue held in place with Blu Tac into where the rod had been and primed in grey.
Then a basecoat of GW "Catchan Green".
Then a good stipple of GW "Gretchin Green". I didn't use the Mr Surfacer before any of the painting stages as i knew i was almost out of the "Gretchin Green" and figured it'd go on thick and gloopy and add texture. Which it did.
