Gorilla My Dreams


The Fiend Folio Project stands to gain two new members; a pair of gorilla bears to be precise. The manufacturer (Fenris Games) calls them pumpkin-head-bears . In other words, they're meant as Rune Quest jack-o-bear analogs. The miniatures blend ape and bear features and if I avoid painting their heads like jack-o-lanterns they should meet my needs quite nicely.

I'm trying to finish these two and an Otherworld owlbear before month's end so I'll keep this brief and to the point.

Some pictures:

    1. The gorilla-bears are coming along nicely while the owl-bear waits in the wings. Should be able to devote serious time to them all this weekend.

    2. Aces :) I'm looking forward to your inventive take on the deadline :P
