Toy Serpent Monster

This instructable will show you how to make a mythical monster to terrify your wargaming minis.  I built this monster out of objects that were lying around my workbench and in the Halloween decorations box.  It took me about an hour to build and an hour to paint, but it was worth it.
To add the tentacles, I used hot glue and put them on the back of the monster.

Step 1: Materials

For this project you will need:
2 pumpkin flashlights (probably could be replaced with a plastic ball or if you can only find one, it will work but you will need to use the side with the face)
A disposable ballpoint pen
A toy spider
A toy frog
A wire coat hanger
Clay or tentacles from a toy (optional)
A flat piece of rubber (optional)

Tools: 
Riveting tool (optional)
Hot glue gun
Pencil torch or lighter
Pliers
Hacksaw (any saw that can cut plastic will do)
Drill and assorted drill bits 
Tin snips
Model paint

Step 2: Body

Take the pumpkin head and unscrew it from the rest of the flashlight.  Then, using the hacksaw, cut of the hat.  Then, use the hacksaw to cut the pumpkin in half.  Repeat these steps with the other pumpkin.
Take the two halves and glue them together along the wider side.  This will form the body.  
Then, take the toy frog and cut off the legs.  The toy was surprisingly strong, and I ended up using tin snips.  Attach the legs to the body with hot glue.
Optional- Get the tentacles that you got from a toy (or roll them out of clay) and Glue or rivet them onto the back of your monster.
