How about WOODWOSE in gaming?
« on: September 20, 2022, 04:49:22 PM »
Question:  Have you ever played a punitive expedition against a roving band of woodwoses?

I find it very interesting how people of European descent (and others) seem to have been illustrating their “battling” against giant hair-covered humanoids for centuries.  :)

PS.  Granted, some of that Woodwose art is in the marginalia of manuscripts, where other artists have depicted jousting on giant snails and such (now, there’s a gaming concept to try out!):

I sculpted one for a project years ago, but never got around to casting it... maybe I should!  :)

Great idea (one I might steal!)

And definitely get the model cast up Lovejoy!

Lovejoy

Lovely figure!  You should definitely get it cast/produced.

I was actually thinking of the Copplestone castings Yeti as possibilities...

If you want bonafide big foot, Antediluvian miniatures also do some 'Patty' style classic bigfoot; and Reaper does another that scales well...
