A D&D classic!Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aurumvorax
” The aurumvorax seems to have a deep affection for precious ores and minerals, which it consumes to supplement its mainly carnivorous diet. It often lairs near places where such things can be found. Gold seems to be its preferred inorganic dish. Many say that the aurumvorax’s disproportionate strength is due to eating these things. The aurumvorax is widely hunted for its fur, which can be used to make garments of great strength and beauty.
An aurumvorax resembles something akin to a rodent or mustelid such as a badger, weasel, marmot, gopher or ferret, but larger, and it has eight legs. It also has slightly leonine features, and its golden-brown fur is as strong as plate armor. Despite the small size and rodent-like appearance, the aurumvorax is quite physically powerful. “
Lots of fun painting this model from Reaper Miniatures. Perfect for playing around with washes and decay 🙂
The Sylvaneth are fey creatures from the wilds of the Mortal Realms, particularly prevalent in Ghyran – the Realm of Life. Seemingly linked to the aelves, these creatures are formed not of flesh and blood but bark and sap, living in perfect harmony with the forests and glades they call home. From Dryads to Treelords, the Sylvaneth are each bringers of life – or, to those who would invade their homes, death.Source: gamesworkshop.com
Said to be a truly ancient spirit, one who fought at the end of the world-that-was, the daughter of Alarielle known as Drycha Hamadreth has named herself the Regent of the Outcasts, leading them into battle while screaming her discordant songs of hatred for all who are not sylvaneth. Her lack of control and bloody-minded genocidal urges make her a frightening foe – wavering between crushing depression and white-hot rage, she makes no distinction between orruk and Stormcast, gor-kin and duardin. She is an agent of violence who will fight on and on until her twisted dream of sylvaneth dominion is achieved.Source: gamesworkshop.com
One of the few deities worshipped by the sylvaneth alongside Alarielle, Kurnoth represents nature’s wildness and hunger. The Kurnoth Hunters are living embodiments of his wrath. Nearly twice the size of a Dryad, masters of sword, bow and scythe, they are strong enough to tear a Chaos warrior in two and tough enough to shrug off the hardest blows. Agile, graceful and stoic, they display little of the whimsy of some of their kin – they display absolute purpose, calm as ancient oaks, deeply focussed on their battles.Source: gamesworkshop.com
