The Clawbeast, whose peace you have disturbed, slashes at you with its deadly talons!
Another memorable adversary from Creature of Havoc and quite a formidable one for its goofy looks with Skill 9 and Stamina 14! These hirsute horrors were a fun addition to Zharradan Marr's Legions and in the end proved a lot less painful to convert and paint than they were for the poor Hill goblins they faced in battle!
You may remember some time ago that I shared a WIP post about these strange creatures, which detailed the trials and tribulations I went through to find a suitable miniature to base the conversion on. Here's the post in question for those of you wanting to jog your memory.
I picked up some rather good tips for painting large areas of fur from Soarastro and his excellent painting videos. I'd been watching a lot of his Imperial Assault videos as I was given the game as a birthday present and have been meaning to get some paint on the figures that came with it. His Wookie tutorial was very useful, especially in terms of getting the shading in with the base coat rather than just relying on uniform ink washed - which is what I tended to do in the past, resulting in a samey result over the entirety of the miniature. Might have to try the technique out on some actual Wookies some time!
So all in all I was really happy how they turned out considering that they threatened to be one of the more problematical elements in the army!
