Gryphons / griffons/ griffins

..I am actually not quite sure wchich is the mos proper word in english for this mythological creture half-lion, half-eagle

And actually also do not know how big should it be

I like how they look in Warhammer Fantasy  and Warcraft Battles, as mighty and scary flying battle mounts for heroes and generals

But as always,. I prefer my favourite scale 1/72, and I wondered how to get some of them..

After much searching, I decided for 2 models from D&D- Wizkids prepainted miniatures

First is from "icons of the realms" series. It is a nice animal with a very dinamic and beautifl flying pose

I actually like a lot the model, See how it looks next to a 1/72 infantry guy and when mountee by a Redbox armoured knight and judge yourselves

The second figure is a much more massive model. It is from the D&D Dungenons Deeps series. It represents an standing griffon, in a quite quiet but observing pose. It is bigger than the first one, but nevertheless still looks good when mounted by the same knight

Now i have to decide the perfect riders (I will choose and elf and a human hero or general, still do not kno who will ride each beast) and then to convert the figure with saddlres, reins and so on...

Suggestions are welcome. By the way, this Blog has a nice suggestion :

Jötunn.Frost Giants

I just acquired some figures from Dungeons and Dragons miniature game pre-painted figs made by WIZKIDS company)

Three of them are HUGE,

I wanted to represent som giants from the Norse mythology, maybe to confront Thor or some 1/72 viking adventurers for their Saga,,,

They are, form left to rigy: Frost Giant (D&D Tyranny of Dragons series) , Frost Giant JArl (did not get the series) and Frost giant (from Pathfinder battles: Dungeons´Deep)

The last one, resulted to be a female giant! (I ralized after receiving the fig, only, when I relaizaed her breasts!!!) It was not dissapointing at all, though

Nice figures, but my wife asked me. after wtching their size, if they are supposed to sleep with me in bed instead her...
