Chaos Attribute Roulette Challenge

Whereas I love painting 1/12 scale models and figures, my hands are just too damn shaky and my eyesight too poor to be able to paint my miniatures.
I will therefore respectfully abstain from the challenge I am about to issue to all interested parties, a challenge for the modelling skills as well as the brush. But I will however volunteer to serve as a referee of sorts in a certain capacity which I will explain in a moment...
The challenge is this;
Generate an "instant chaos spawn" using the rules found on page 65 of Slaves to Darkness. This calls for rolling up D6+6 chaos attributes. The challenge is that you must take the attributes generated and no trading them out for alternates. With the attributes so generated, it is up to you to arrange them and convert or sculpt them into as stunning a chaos spawn model as you can possibly realise. Naturally, the participant gets to decide what the original base creature is, so it will fit in with your gaming themes when it is complete.
Photos of the resulting figures will then be posted here so your mates can delight in your creativity and ingenuity in realising a totally arbitrary collection of attributes, as was the order of the day for warband players when Slaves to Darkness and Lost and the Damned were in their heyday.
To insure that no one fudges on their randomly generated attributes in any way, I will serve as impartial generator of attributes with my trusty copy of Slaves and my dice here.
Interested parties should post to this thread to request their set of chaos attributes.
(I hereby promise there will be no sadistic fudging of results on my part either; the rolls shall indeed be totally random results.)
Any takers?

This sounds flipping amazing.
I'd be up for it if I wasn't so chicken (and also snowed under with other projects)!

Hesitant interested parties may send me a PM to receive their chaos attributes; that way you don't need to worry about failing in public should you discover you can't manage it.
Completed artworks can then be posted here (or not, as the case may be...) :)

It seems that publicity was the issue for some. Since I suggested the PM messages, I've had three takers for this challenge.
I've posted the attributes generated for the participants here, so others can look forward to (possibly) seeing how they turn out.

Spawn B is amazing!
It hates part of its own skin. Brilliant!

That's the spirit!
And here you are...

Spawn E:

D6+6 Chaos Attributes; D6=6+6=12

1. Growth - original size x3: Mx2, WS-1, S+3, T+2, Wx2, I-3, fear points +2
2. Long Spines - (nonpoisonous type): mutant may only wear chaos armour, fear points +1
3. Tentacles - three arms: +1 fear point
4. Powerful Legs
5. Irrational fear, three fears: Humans, Wizards, and GM's choice (Hmm. I'll say burning/flamed models and objects).
6. Crown of Flesh - GM's Choice: (Again? Ok, I'll say, "eyestalks".)
7. Horns: +1 fear point
8. Plague Bearer, Eye Rot: (the eyes swell and distend, growing large and bulbous with retained fluid) -1 BS
9. One Eye: BS divided by 2 (presumably this applies only to the non-eyestalk eyes? Your choice though.)
10. Hunchback: +1 fear point
11. Horns: a second set of horns; +1 fear point
12. Blood Rage: subject to frenzy for 2D6 turns when within 12" of a wounded creature (including itself). T+1

Fear Points total: 7, the mutant causes fear in all living creatures. The mutant itself is immune to fear except when this is caused by demons, deities, humans, wizards, and burning things.
