Or should I say Manbearpig?
Generally, these kinds of mixed creatures aren't really my cup of tea, but in order to cheer me up in these rainy jobless times, a box of WHFB was purchased - but why WHFB, you then ask? Well, little Billy, because nowadays WHFB is a lot cheaper than LotR/The Hobbit miniatures AND comes with a lot more bits! And chocolate! Plus, I have always liked the majestic - though very high-fantasy - look of the Manbearpigs, no sorry, the Owlbears, no... the Demigryphs, as well as Games Workshop's take on the griffin/gryphon/griphin/griff. When entering the store, I asked myself: What do I really like about this hobby? The converting phase of a project, was my happy answer.
Hence, I bought a box of the silly Celestial Hurricanum, because it is smack-filled with bits. The store-owner assured me that the horses were quite coveted by the WHFB-community around the store and that I could easily exchange them in their bits-exchange-programme.
Blah-blah-blah, long story short: The box was filled with beautiful little bits, but I must say this about WHFB: The proportions are closer to 40 mm nowadays! Super-heroic scale! The plastic men that came on one of the sprues were huge, and their hands... wow...
majestic... speaking of which, how good isn't that song? Wax Fang: Majestic.
This project was another one of those "mixing things up a bit"-projects, which I tend to throw in between big army renovations or other large projects.
Lastly, everything's changing now: Searching for a new (and better) job, a new place to live - this old multiculti hellhole is getting the better of me - and other stuff related to those two things, which is why updates will be slow.
EDIT: Welcome Quindiastudios to the sidebar. The latest projects on the blog in question have been The Hobbit-stuff!
EDIT 2: A link to Joe5mc's campaign in Middle-Earth* which is short and sweet, for now, but I expect great things of this one!
*) Or should I say, "campaign in Belegaer"?
