Here's another one! The Chimeric Aberration is something I was inspired to build after reading about Chimeric Creature in D&D Monster Manual 2. In the book, they give the example of a Chimeric ankheg which has the head and front legs of and ankheg with a goat and a white dragon head. I'm calling my monster a Chimeric Aberration, because it doesn't have the traits of a goat and a chromatic dragon which are normally present on a Chimeric Creature. Instead, my chaotic hybrid will be the result of a mad wizard experiment that went terribly wrong. It will have the main features of a Giant Hound, a Deadborn Vulture head will stretch out from the right side of the monster and an Hulking Insect head will sit on the left side. My plan is to use a 02817 Moor Hound for the main body. Then, I will use both heads from 03069, Hooked Hulk witch are included in 03440 Creature Components pack 2 along with 14456 Mastema’s tail included in 03334 Creature Components. I will also use 03641 Gunslinger’s wings to add another characteristic of the Vulture. I’ve considered larger wings like those of 02065 Greycloud the Pegasus and maybe 02729 Mephisto’s wings would have been even more appropriate but I don‘t have them at hand. I may swap some of its paw for claw and/or palmed foot as well. For the colors, I thought of painting the main body green like a Cù-Sìth from the Scottish folklore. The additional head will have traditional vulture and insect colors. Voilà, It should be charming.
"Many adventurers speak bravely about facing the enlarged rats of Haglynch Swamp. Many adventurers die swiftly in the final realization that they aren't up against rats." This paint job was inspired by the albino Barghest miniature I got playing in a D&D Miniatures release event many years ago. Barghests have always been a favorite monster of mine, so I borrowed some inspiration from that figure. I Googled some images of moors and decided to try and make a base to correspond. I'm still not clear on the differences between swamps, bogs and moors but I think he looks appropriate. Oh and a special thanks to Metalchaos for doing his dragonlion with the water so that I'd get off my butt and finally give the Realistic Water a try. C&C always welcome from all levels.
