BEASTMEN of the Wyld! (02900, with guest appearances by Sora Goldflame and Vistaril Quillscratch)


Recommended Posts

D. Williams did a spectacular job on these three. I was genuinely surprised by the sheer heft of the set--even at the price you are getting a lot of mini for your money! The Stag Knight and the Boar Brute are big fellows. 

But don't take my word for it; let's see pics!





This is the sort of thing that happens when you cross The Fey: you get transmogrified into a half-man, half-beast cursed to wander the woods. At least this gentleman pulls it off with dignity and grace. (And he IS a gentleman: got a coat of arms and everything on the shield!)


More pictures: 







Big, like I said: here's a comparison with Sora Goldflame, Female Cleric, 03283. A moment of praise for Jeff Grace's sculpt here: she is gorgeous and dynamic, an heroic pose and beautifully detailed armor and shield. Fantastic for a light cleric or a paladin. (Ignore the "medic" armband; I had difficulty keeping her dainty arm glued on and this was a workaround). 


It's appropriate that Sora's pose is 'punching up.'



Next up, the brutish hog-man! Again, just a hefty chunk of metal. The other giant boar is from Black Tree; came with a mounted orc as a separate piece. I love the man-hog's giant mace and the combination of tattered clothes and fancy adornment. DSCN9439.thumb.JPG.a96be64eee84edbed8f565d2286871be.JPG









^This one is the same angle as another, but a crisper shot of the boar buddy and less good a shot of the beastman.



And here is a size comparison with Vistaril Quillscratch, Wizard (03393). Tre Manor did a great job with this sculpt. Scrawny arms in abjurative gestures, beaky nose, long beard. Classic wizard. I painted him as more of a druid-type.  Again, you can see that Mister Hog is simply massive. 



Another shot with a female cleric (she was a Reaper freebie I remember...I think one of the Anniversary series, but I can't find her on the site). The beast-man is intrigued by this "word sandwich."

Thirdly, the foxy werefox archer. Smallest of the three (meaning regular humanoid scale) and also with the fewest humanoid features--or at least the most torso fur. If memory serves, she also shows up in the Lady Lycanthropes pack. A finely detailed sculpt. In hindsight I probably should have put some white patterning on the blue cloth; maybe later.








More angles:




Again, scale comparison:





Thank you for viewing, and remember: DON'T CROSS THE FAE! 

More beast people forthcoming!

Wonderful group - the stag man is my favorite, such a wonderful sculpt and you nice blend and join for furs vs skin. I like Hog man and foxwman too - a great trio. Hog man does remind me somehow of Mr. T though.... (the sculpt not the painting)

I appreciate it! With regard to the stag, we can't have all our transmogrified princes be white dudes! As to Hog man, I agree. It's partly the gold chains, and definitely the way he pities the fool who tries to step to him.

Wonderful set!

I especially love the foxy lady!

Value for money! and while I do want to give her clothing some more pizazz, I'm happy with the fox coloration and markings.
