I've been slowly planning my Beasts unit and I wouldn't put it past the Duke to have a collection of exotic beasts and pets, nor take them to show off on a realspace raid.

The idea is having 10 different Khymerae stand ins and 4 Razorwings, my ideas are as follows:

Khymerae
Direwolf
*Chaos hound
Fenrisian Wolf
Converted fenrisian wolf
*Sabertusk
Cold one
*White Lion
*Kroot hound
?

Razorwing
*Ripperjacks
*Terradon
?

I'm also planning a big beastie for a counts as Talos, ideas?

There are the old warp beasts which add another khymera option and are easy to get off eBay. Vampire bats are also an easy to get option for razorwings

Flesh hounds of Khorne (this editions as well as the last ones that looked like evil hyenas), LOTR Worgs as Khymera. As for the Razorwings, I made some with plastic bats, a spider swarm would be cool.

Necron Wraiths and a Stalker are a possibility. Also Slaanesh steeds just might work. Pink horrors minus arms, GS over gaps, to give demented Pacman thingys might be fun.

For Khymera, someone on here converted a lion-like model to accompany their Vect, and they said it was meant to rep a psychic creature that accompanies Farseers into battle. I know that is little enough to go on, as I can't remember who it was or the name of the creature. They used a pretty decent-looking lion model that I had assumed was from the High Elf line (I know little and less about fantasy), but now that I'm looking, I can only find these lions, and they might be too big:

In fact, it may have been a sabretusk, but I can't believe it as the Sabretusks are some of the singularly most hideous models GW has ever produced!

Also, you could consider the older plastic cold ones (the thick-looking, low-slung ones).

I would vote for DarkMark's suggestion of Pink Horrors, and I would suggest to go further and GS over the eyes, as forum-member Hydra did so well:

For Razorwings, if they don't have to be flying, I'd use Tyranid Rippers. If they have to be flying, consider FW winged rippers.

And what about a Thundertusk/Stonehorn as a big, beastly Talos stand-in? Wink

I have revived this project and need more ideas, I've edited the original post with some more options, I've also added asterisks for anything I don't own which I'll paypal anyone with one to spare.

Also what is the optimum beast build?

A figure I like is Trent miniatures cave bear.

3 versions, standing, rearing and attacking.

would make a good Clawed fiend.

They also do wolves, sabrecats vultures and bison
