The hunt is afoot!

Early this year I was invited to partake in Iron Sleets first Invitational. My first plan was to create a group of xenos bountyhunters in an attempt to show off the diversity of sentient life in the galaxy. 

This unfortunately proved a bit too ambitous and I got completely stuck - none of the xenos turned out the way I wanted them. In the end I decided to do a slaaneshii themed entry instead where one of the xenos was reworked into a warped hellbrute construct. 

The xenos that I felt worked best - nicknamed The Hunter - was temporarily shelved after he had a little accident. Now however, I feel the time has come to get back to him as I'm really quite fond of this mini. There's a certain feline menace about him...





He'll probably end up part of Carax growing retinue of miscreants or I may actually do an entire band of xenos like originally intended.

  2. Brilliant, I liked this guy first time around. Can't wait to see what you do with him!

    Btw what parts did you use on his spine?

    1. Cheers! The spine is from a necron praetorian - fits really well into the groove in the bloodletters back when you chop it up in smaller sections.

  3. Definitely picked up on the feline aspects of this guy when you first posted him, think its the face and the multi jointed legs. Glad to see you are finishing this guy!

    1. Cheers!

      The face is nicked from a wood elf dryad, minus the branches/horns.

  6. I'm really interested to see how you paint this guy. Any ideas yet? I think some kind of stripes or spots would look awesome on him.

    1. I´m actually undecided how to paint him - I may play up the feline angle and make him black/grey: panther style. That or classic mottled predator skin similar to the brontoglorrg I made a two years ago.

  8. I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
    liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
    reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
    became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
    ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC (www.ultimatelifeclinic.com) in March, 2020. Their
    treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
    the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
    treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.
