Who doesnt love forest dwelling beasts?
Here is a bedlam of beasties...
a menagerie of monsters...
a trampling herd of hoofs...
Step this way folks and let us visit the natural habitat of the war beasts of Lothlorien...
Reminder to myself, I really should update my Oldhammer Monster Manual!
Which means they are all 'eavy metal.
That's Citadel Code C29 Jabberwock to you!
The beast masters job is to make sure no Vorpal Swords go snicker-snackering around his favorite pet.
What a cutie-patootie!
Warhammer 1st Edition has this for Jabberwocks:
The Jabberwock attacks on sight with a ferocity tempered only by a full stomach.
A hungry Jabberwock exhibits a luminescent quality which illuminates an area up to 6" radius around the creature, making Jabberwocks easy to see.
Unfortunately the mere sight of Jabberwock causes victims to freeze with fear...
Throw a d6 whenever a Jabberwock is visible within 15"
1-2 May not move this turn. Must Save vs Poison or die!
3-4 May not move this turn.
5-6 May move... but only away from the Jabberwock.
So how does anyone get in close combat with it? Only if it charges you, I guess!
On top of this, the beastie has 8 wounds, 8 attacks, can Regenerate, has a Weapon Skill of 8, and a Toughness of E (thats toughness 5 for you non old-schoolers!)
Citadel Code C22 Creatures - Basilisk.
He is planning some mischievous deed and will surely snicker when he accomplishes it!
Keep your hands away from its jaws... all 3 of them.
Oh wait, thats 4 including the snake tail!
Citadel Code C27 Chimera
There were 10 different heads and 4 different bodies.
Arent lions dangerous enough?
Some rogue god had to give it wings and a giant scorpion tail stinger just to mess with folks.
This ravenous monster bird would surely eat those silly kids for a snack.
Thats 5 new beasts that are added to another 5 we have seen on this blog before.
They are allied (some say brainwashed) by the Elves of Lothlorien.
The forests of Lothlorien are a dangerous place indeed.
No one may walk under its leafy ceiling without the permission of the Lady of the Wood.
Lest arrow, or fang, or claw, or tail, strike at the intruders from all directions!
More elves from other places in Middle Earth are coming!
