I like this Owlbear way better than the Bones 1 Owlbear, who's whole pose just always bothered me. I think the Bones Black owlbear did turn out looking really good (don't own one yet, maybe someday) but the two of Bones 4's owlbear are fine for my purposes. I don't specifically plan on hunting down any others at the moment. These work fine.

 

i really love that Bones 1 Owlbear. I have to put the two side eby side. I hope this one is smaller so i can use it as a younbg owlbear.

I think wizkids still wins though.  I think what ruins the bones 4 and bones black one to me is the feathered wings on the arms.  I just dont like that.

So much agree. I've only been able to figure it out 75% of the way. It's a drop-dead gorgeous piece though, and it's freaking HUGE. I was expecting something maybe half the size. 

 

 

You are correct. 

 

Huzzah!

--OneBoot :D 

There is a smaller orrery in one of the Mantic Terrain Crate sets - Megan uses it for the 'portable' version of an artifact - the room sized one will be... a challenge tp transport, methinks.

I think that we will be happy to have both.

I'll admit - I think that one is pretty imposing overall. I think, in general, the difficulty in really making an owlbear that looks "right" is partially because the very concept really just doesn't make much sense. On the other hand, I'd love a vizzerdrix miniature...

on the subject of the astrolabe, i dont' like the monkey with it. I would rather it be more like the mantic one rather than some fancy elaborate set up invovling a monkey

 

mostly because i feel like the monkey would be out of place thematically

 

on top of that, its detail is really soft and there isn't much to it

 

on the subject of owlbears, i like the bones 4 one. I like having a bear, with a beak, and very slight feathering on the arms. The bones black one has too much feathering, it looks like a giant owl, and i don't like the wizkid one becuase it just looks like a bear with a weird face

Sorry Ron...

The gf9 resin one from the army painter d&d paint set is the best of all of them imho but they must have rushed it.  The feathers don't have all the normal feather detail. Pose and look is very good though.

This one?

Hmmm Its a tough call I really like this one too.  The only issue I have is that its from Gale force 9.  When opening their illithid pack.  I broke 3 of the five minis just getting them off the sprues.  With a cutting tool.  Which makes me dread opening my larger ones.

Yes that one. It's also an official d&d one.  Overall I like the gf9 one. Then the bones 4 one. Can't stand the bones black one or the wizkids.

Yeah, that. An advantage of multiple sculpts for a monster is that, if you need more than one -- and need to *pay* for more than one -- for a encounter, at least you have some variety to throw at your players.

 

Granted, if the encounter is with three (four?) owlbears, it's may be a pretty short encounter! :lol:
