I don't know the original genestealers and (if there are any) Forgeworld modifications for 'stealers, but I think there was one head with some kind of tentacles or tendrils...
that's why I chose the third one.

As Mahon said there is indeed a head with feeder tendrils on :) but it looks more like a mouth full of worms than cthulu as such ;)

lol, or maybe he does know that and is taking some satisfaction now before the inevitable happens.

Thanks for the real life example of a worm face, mahon :D :lol:

Thank you all that voted on this pool, it really helped me up making my mind.
I runned this same pool in 12 forums for a week to have a wider prespective and the results are very clear and I will share them here:

Pincer head got 195 votes
Octopoid head got 99 votes
Eyeless head got 62 votes

A total of 356 votes.

So I will sculpt some pincer head variants and maybe I could also mix the octopoid encefalo on the pincer mouth... I will keep everyone posted on progress in a new modelling thread I will open just for this work.

Again thanks all its time to let the bugs out.
