Swarm Host 3D model is inspired by the unit from this video game franchise. Although it doesn't have weapons of its own, it represents an entire army. 

The in-game unit spits parasitic symbiotics which attack the enemy. They use their acidic saliva as a weapon against the near enemies.

Swarm Host 3D model is a mushroom-shaped unit with grinder legs that allow him to quickly bury itself. The legs have capillaries through wich acidic blood flows. Whenever the Swarm Host digs, the capillaries break and the acidic blood softens the soil, which makes the burial fast enough for him to hide from the enemy.

The 3D model is created in Autodesk Maya modeling program. The files are converted to STL and are made solid. The 3D printing model is split into 6 parts for an easy handling of the files during 3D printing and for less support use. There's also an unsplit version of the 3D model.

Note: 3D print the unsplit 3D model on SLS/SLA 3D printers for accurate results.

After being 3D printed, Swarm Host 3D model will stand 172 mm wide, 170 mm tall, and 121 mm deep.
