So, I decided to make up a Beastmaster pack, as cheap as possible.
I started with the Kymerae
There are numberless canine beasts that could do the job, I decided to use a box of the Vampire counts Direwolves, they are nightmarish enough.
There are ten of them so that's two packs of five.
These lot took me about an hour to make up. Not all the pieces interchange, though most do. With a bit of care you can have them all different.
They have separate ribs but if you miss out a few, it doesn't matter.
I made sure I cleaned off the mould lines and sprue stumps...Its surprising how many top modellers forget this; it shows.
And, Lo, I have bits...
Now all I need to do is fill them and base them.
