Journey into Naggaroth - Chapter 5 - Manticore Menace

More monster madness, although the tardiness has kicked in after such a long break from updating this site. As of now another monster - A Manticore. This bad monster is modified from the Chaos Lord on Manticore kit by getting an extra piece of the seat from the Dark Elf Dreadlord on Black Dragon kit (thanks eBay).

A nice look from far

Close up on the face, damn ferocious
The mane is a dark brown base (GW Rhinox Hide) with a drybrush highlight of GW Mephiston Red giving it some shadow effect on the mane while bringing out the red highlights at the same time.

The same trick applied on the Black Dragon, applies here
The same trick is applied on the Manticore, from my experience with the Black Dragon. Instead of a black ink wash, I went with a brown wash (GW Agrax Earthshade) as my contour

A view from the top
The Manticore is 180 points to field not including the Supreme Sorcerer or the Dreadlord to sit on it (not included in this blog). So it would be only useful to have it on a 3000 point game or above. I'm going to get more core troops if I were to fit this bad boy in.
