Arena Rex: Crassus

Crassus is one of the beasts found found within the Arena Rex world. The photos don’t really show it, but it’s a massive model. Amusingly, if you take it in your cohort, after you ‘kill’ it, it becomes a living hazard. Don’t poke the bear!


As a bonus, it also comes with this secondary model. Crassus has been in the pit for some time, evidently. Perhaps a second hazard?

Arena Rex: Sereqet and Zahra

Sereqet is another of the beasts for Arena Rex. Like Caho-Ta and Ladon, it can optionally have a rider. In this case, Zahra is part of the Morituri starter.

Like the other mounts, I drilled and glued in a small magnet to help the rider stay in place.


I wanted a metallic green for the carapace. It came out a bit on the chalky side, but I’m generally pretty happy with it.

As a bonus, this model would work as a pretty good radscorpion for This is Not a Test, Fallout, or other post-apoc games.

Arena Rex: Morituri Starter (Zahra, Mago, and Ur-Kek)

I don’t play nearly enough Arena Rex, but at least I get to paint it. Here I’m starting up yet another faction, the Morituri.


There are quite a few of these nets in Arena Rex. I usually don’t like how they turn out, but this one is pretty good. Probably because it’s a fine enough mesh that the dark recesses works well with a simple wash.


Mago is just so cuddly. As long as he doesn’t swing that giant blade at you.


Zahra also rides a giant scorpion, but not in the faction starter. Fortunately, her spear and whip come in both metal and resin. I chose metal, so I could keep it straight, and it would bend instead of snap.
