An Imaginary Menagerie

With my leg on the mend my tenure as ‘Lord Leisure’ is coming to an end and it’s back to the grindstone this week. Having the best part of the summer off has been rather novel and my hobby output has been gratifyingly prolific.

Lately, I have been working on another addition to my Greek Mythology project, in the form of this fearsome fellow which, along with a handful of harpies and centaurs, was a birthday present from my wonderful girlfriend.



The Chimera, from Foundry Miniature’s Greek Mythology range, is a very fine specimen indeed! Possessing the heads of a lion and a goat, wings of an eagle and a snake for a tail, I’m sure he will prove more than a match for my Greek heroes.

      1. Yes! And the snakey parts (and the lion mouth) contrast really nicely with the muted palette of the rest of the creature.

        I hope their will be a diorama of an epic battle coming up soon?

      2. I certainly hope to get some more pictures of dioramas done now I can reach the top bedroom.
        In fact I’ve finally finished the diorama that I’ve been posting about for ages.
        The gals have found a home!

  1. A very neat model! I also like the wings. Reminds me of the chimera from D&D sans the dragon’s head of course. Come to think of it I don’t think the D&D one had a snake tail either. Oh well. 🙂
