I really like Julie Guthrie's rendition of the peryton, a monster (part deer, part eagle, all vicious) that casts the shadow of a human instead of a bird, and eats the hearts of its victims.
Reaper released the peryton in metal (03702) and in Bones plastic (77392).
When I taught my "Fur, Feathers, and Scales" class at ReaperCon 2018, I used the Bones version of the peryton to demonstrate techniques for painting feathers, inspired by real-world birds.
And recently I decided to paint the whole thing, as I had intended to do all along.
I ran a WIP thread about it -- read it here. [edited link 3/29/19]
This is the result:
(No, I didn't paint in a humanoid shadow under it. I just think it wouldn't have been legible on this small base and rocky terrain. Idea for a diorama, free for the taking: 1 or 2 perytons attacking adventurers on a plateau, with the humanoid shadows of the rest of the flock unseen but implied above.)
Anyway ... Enjoy!
