Baby behir maybe?

 

I know the name but not very familiar with behirs. When were they introduced?

Before my time, TBH. I didn't start playing until AD&D 2nd edition, and they were already in the Monster Manual at that point. As per Wikipedia,  "The behir first appeared in the first edition adventure module, The Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth (1982), and was reprinted in the Monster Manual II (1983)." I was only 2 when they came out. But I used them randomly as a monster in 2nd Ed, and it stuck with me. The behir used as a random encounter in my Pathfinder Kingmaker campaign wound up becoming the mayor of a city. I just have some weird, inexplicable affection for them.

So I had to come on here and make a comment.
Grey Bones, the stiffer ones.  I LOVE THEM.

Been working on the Scarecrow from wild west Oz. The stiffer material was nice to work with. It feels stiff like a hard plastic, but still has some give. I wish there were more mini's like that. I'm won over with those.

Loved the look of that adventure but not the adventure itself. I actually didn't do much with dragons or dragon-like creatures back then. Not sure if I need a full-sized behir now but I try to find a place in an adventure for my minis. I have all the dragons except Ma'al and Stormwind coming (On the UPS truck today!) as I will need them for an upcoming adventure against giants (also stocked up on giants and yeti).

 

I wonder what size behir are in MM2?

Finally got through checking all my miniatures off on my list, and trying out some fits. Nothing missing or incorrectly provided, as far as I can tell. All in all, very pleased with everything I've gotten, with one exception - the Behir. I love Behirs for reasons I can't explain, and I've got the Huge Behir mini from DDM's first Huge set, which I've used for ages. I was really happy that a Behir was in the Stoneskull expansion, and the render looked gorgeous. The problem with it is one of scale. Behirs are supposed to be huge beasts, able to constrict regular humans and generally imposing, Now that I've got it in my hands... well...

It's so much smaller. Not marginally so, but significantly smaller. While the original Behir is, honestly, a little too large to fit the base, but this is just so tiny in comparison. I'm not sure what to do at this point. One down-side, but otherwise, the minis in my possession are excellent and I can't wait to get to painting them...

 

I basically bought stoneskull for the behir alone and I'm also disappointed with the looks of it to be honest. Looks like I'm going to have to shell out for the prepaint. It's weird cause usually reaper bones are better at scaling big creatures. I also don't like that it's mashed so much into the broccoli base.

 

On the bright side the froghemoth looks way better than I thought it would. You win some you lose some.

I've gotten your order details from LadyStorm and I'm investigating.

 

As with the message above, I've got million things on my desk (and LS has over 1600 emails about this KS She's processing) but I promise she and i are looking into every report -- although in some cases we're waiting for the update to go out because there's a ton of good data in it

 

Thanks. I sent you a PM before seeing this, so it can be safely ignored. I appreciate the response, I really do.

I got *2* Stoneskulls so my wife and I could each have a Behir. I love the sculpt even though it's a lot smaller than we expected. We already have the DDM one, so a different size is fine by us.

I am pretty sure I have that module in my pile of really OLD stuff that I just can not part with at this time.  Trying to remember if I ever ran it back in the day with my group of high school friends that played.

 

As for the size of the behir on our Bones 3...it looks pretty menacing next to Sir Forscale and could probably constrict him with ease.

My thoughts exactly. And given my current space issues in okay with it being a bit on the smaller side.

I've got no room. Something is going to have to go. It's not going to be my miniatures. Maybe get a smaller fridge.

 

My order is out for delivery.  It is keeping from getting anything done so I've wheeled myself out to the garage with the laptop to putter and wait.

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
       
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)
       

       
      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

       
      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.

      Story
      After the estate of one Fomo Barrowblight (who many moons ago, and with heavily laden bags, had said he was just off for a morning walk, never to return) was sold at auction, there came to light a strange scroll that appeared to be a map of the final resting place of a lost tribe of halflings.  These cousins lived down in the scorching Southlands, amidst endless dunes that had buried whole cities and civilisations.
      The newly elected (and so still very enthusiastic) Halfling Town Council had organised an expedition to make contact with their fellow halflings, with the aim of swapping some stories and recipes, and who knows, perhaps even coming back with some interesting new cakes.
      And, after many great perils and travails, the expedition found itself in a mysterious location known as 'The Valley of the Things'.  Here, recipes in strange hieroglyphs were marked on tomb walls,  guarded jealously by High Priests and long mummified pastry chefs.  
      The expedition takes time to assuage the fears of the High Priests that they are here to steal the sacred recipes and make formal diplomatic relations.  But Fomo Barrowblight and another mysterious figure seem intent on stealing the recipe to the sacred pie and have already gleaned some of the ingredients...
      To the Mummy's Tomb!
      Introducing a series of  Eight Fantasy Miniatures in 28mm scale from a halfling expedition to the burial grounds of their cousins, in the desert southlands. 
        Halfling Town Council Five
      The latest elected Halfling Town Council, has been responsible for launching the expedition to the distant Southlands, as always, it is made up of eight different townsfolk from all walks of life.
       
       
       
      I've already pledged for the whole set, why haven't you?

      Story
      Echoes of Camelot: Arthurian Legends is a project that will expand our 75mm resin miniature range with new and exciting models based on the Matter of Britan, particularly around the figure of King Arthur and his Knights. We have many cool surprises prepared should you help us bring this dream to life.
      These miniatures have been sculpted and painted here at the Big Child Creatives studio with the collaboration of some of the most talented miniature artists out there. And what is more, they will be manufactured by our own talented team of resin casting experts. This allows us to monitor the process closely to ensure the best quality in the market and a timely delivery.
      We have learned a lot from our previous campaigns, and we want to put all this experience to good use, repeating everything we did right, improving upon it, and correcting our past mistakes. We invite you to join us in this journey of discovery throughout the Matter of Britain and its amazing cast of unique characters.
      This campaign is a journey of discovery, full of surprises such as custom bits to make your miniatures even more striking than they already are. Some of these kits will be Kickstarter exclusive, so those of you who choose to support us will be able to proudly show it through unique miniatures, even more full of life and character than our regular releases.

      A huge 2 for 1 KS!  
      (You get BOTH Humans and Halflings in one project! )
      Bloody Peasants! by Midlam Miniatures — Kickstarter
       
      Story
      "Oh no!  It's an armed agrarian uprising!"
      Toiling in the fields for their feudal overlords, the peasants are equally quick to turn their tools to defending their lands from monstrous invaders or, when pressed to the limit, revolting and overturning cruel and greedy landowners.
      Bloody Peasants!
      A selection of human and halfling farmers in 28mm scale miniatures for all of your fantasy games.
      You can choose from humans, halflings or both!
      The Humans
      A familiar sight in the villages surrounding Midlam.
      The Halflings
      A smaller folk, doing the same jobs as the longshanks.
       
       
       
      It's a Midlam project, so you know what that means;
      Maybe a stretch goal, very possibly an early fulfillment, and absolutely no nonsense.
