Best Kept Secrets: Dark Fable Miniatures' "Ammut the Devourer"


Ammut the Devourer

Here is one Dark Fable's mythical beasts from Ancient Egypt: Ammut the Devourer. Sculpted by Andy Pieper, it is a combination of crocodile, lion and hippo. It is a fearsome beast! The sculpting is superb, and really captures the ferocity of the beast.
If you are like me, you might not have heard of this monster before. It was completely new to me, but I recently spotted a Savage Sword of Conan cover by Earl Norem that shows that some artists at least, are well versed on their mythical beasts!

Effincool Miniatures ran this Kickstarter in the Spring and are now just finishing up the last few sculpts. I thought I'd post some pics here as I think there are many figures useful as proxy figures for Tekumel Games. The gong beater and drummers, for example. I think I can find uses for all, in fact!

Late backers can still get in on the action via Backerkit.

I think there are 5-8 figures and accessories left to be done, and the Backerkit will be locked after that. Delivery in the Spring sometime, assuming no hiccups.

There is already talk of a "Part 2"...
