My girlfriend gave this to me yesterday as a Valentine’s Day Gift.
Meanwhile, I gave her a display case for her Mousling miniatures collection.
We found both at the HobbyTown USA in Kennesaw, Georgia. That place is modeler’s dream. There’s a game room for RPGs and wargames. And other room dedicated to model racing cars.
But I digress.
This Behemoth comes from Safari, ltd.
It might need some touching up. And I’ve thought about repainting it violet, to resemble the Behemoth from Final Fantasy IV.
(Like I don’t have enough nerd-irons in the fire as it is…)
Some might turn their noses up at buying miniatures for children. And, I understand; there’s an appeal to buying and painting a large dragon from Reaper. I’ve a few large metal figurines myself.
The nice thing about children’s toys, however, is that they’re meant to take punishment. I don’t have to worry about them suddenly tipping over and chipping their paint or a wing snapping off.
Last November, I wrote about Safari Ltd, after I picked up a cyclops. They have a nice assortment of fantasy and real-world figures. While the figures a bigger than the standard size for RPGs, they can make great “dire” or giant monsters.
Be sure to check out their dragons.
