This fellow is from Darksword Miniatures and whilst I did not have any use for him when I saw him I knew I really wanted to find one. The model came in about four parts and went together fairly well with minimum fuss or flash. It's on a display base as it's up for grabs between the players after it's been used as it's a one off monster and won't get used again. If none of them want it then it would be sold on e-bay to pay for more monsters etc.
They are classed as 28mm figures though I find them somewhat larger so I guess Heroic scale, still the quality of the figures makes Darksword my preferred supplier even though they are quite expensive outside GW
The figure is called Nightmare Beast SKU DSM1228 though I have a slightly different approach in my campaign. The adventurers have now met the beast but have yet to have that final deadly confrontation. This beast will give me 5 more points and the gang kittens.
