Hook Horror Miniature

Recommended Posts

I am running Out of the Abyss for my table and we are coming up to the Hook Horrors Lair!

 

I am after 2 Hook horrors, any one got any suggestions?

Iron Winds has a Hook Horror in a dynamic pose.  I recall a different version from Ral Partha as well--might have to swim the Evil Bay for that one.

I'd just take the Bones Owlbear, remove it's handwings, and add on some thick plastic that's been cut into hook shapes...

 

I always thought they looked like weird Owlbears, though, and it's such a good pose for it...

Yeah I was considering using the owl bear but to cut and remake hook arms and try get rid of a bunch of feathers seems like a lot of work.

 

Hmm I havnt found any super good ones yet

Plenty of pre-painted hook horrors on eBay.

 

Crocodile Games has a scarab-ogre that comes with multiple head options, one that makes it look like an umber hulk, and two other insectoid ones, one of which can pass somewhat for a horror. It's big, that I can vouch for, but it's expensive. They happen to sell it in a three-pack, as well. For a fair discount off the regular price. Doesn't have hooks, though, just fantastically big claws.

If pre-painted plastic minis can be acceptable, WotC made 2 of them and then Wizkids made one. I guess some of them can be still bought on e-bay with reasonable price.

Agreed...Rangy-looking things.

Normally I try not to do the pre-painted D&D figures but the bigger ones are sometimes usable .There are a few varieties of Hook Horrors in their different ranges and they're usually reasonably priced. There were also two recent Kickstarters that featured them and I think Mierce Miniatures either had one or is having one.. or it's available.. I dunno.. Mierce's store and kickstarters sometimes confuse me.

Ral Partha did one back in the day, in the AD&D line. the number starts with 11-, you can find them on the bay of evil sometimes...
