PAL: March & April : The Beast

Mar 1- April 31: THE BEAST

We're already 10 days into March, so get cracking! I mean, if you're not already neck deep in Salute painting & table building projects. :)

Some cheap plastic toy Beasts of burden (sans burden of course) found in a charity shop re-purposed for Pulp and general North African games.

Brave you all!
What a superb game this is and will become, my prediction was weak and we will be many more.
Thank you all and see you again here, in breathing life, never where popular opinion dies

Still haven't managed to work on anything for any PAL so far (stuck on the ST project) but I just *might* be able to make this one. Is the theme "just" beasts (as in beasts of burden, etc) or does it also include monsters (like, say, Heresy's fabulous Tunnel Dweller or a daemonic Arse Cannon)?

PAL themes are intended to be as open to interpretation as you like more or less.

So The Beast could be absolutely anything that you can fit to it. Not just beasts of burden, beasts of the shaddows, horrors, a huge tank named "the beast" with suitable nose style art.

Just so long as no creature was harmed in the process of creating said beast, especially not turned into a coat or any other item of clothing . . . . .

Hmm... the thing I thought I might do for this is probably to big now that I have Salute commitments. I shall have to look over the piles of lead and see what I can come up with.

Good luck indeed, connexion. An arsecannon is no small undertaking.

Disturbing :s

A bit of highlighting and washing. I let it pool badly in a couple of areas so will have to fix that...

Damn that was fast. And nice. :)

I have some of these sitting around, if anyone wants them. :p I think I have the ogre hunter guy they come with too, infact.

I could be tempted by the hunter if Countersunk just wants Sabretusks or whatever the fudge they are called.

Well hell, that was easy, I think I can sort you both out. :)

Free dust with every miniature.

Let me make sure I have the beltbuckle thing, and his spears, fonz. I was always going to paint those sperate before gluing, but that was at leat one move ago, so it might take a minor spelunkling effort. . . hopefully I was smart and stored it with other spares... but I'm not always smart.
