Can anyone come up with diffinative differences between these two creatures. They both seem to be made up of part bird, part beast with bird head. They both have the exact same stats in game as well.
Other than Hippogryphs being a wild animal in bretonnia, and griffons being more present in empire zoos, or in the possession of high elves, are these creatures in any way different?
This comes from me planning a modelling project to make a hippogryph (don't like the GW model) and thought to use a griffon as a base, but as a rule I go by fluff, and that seems a little different model wise so does anyone have any sources that can help. the bret army book entry doesn't really describe the makeup of a hippogryph.
It's a fairly simple question to answer. (Google is your friend)
A Griffon is part Eagle, part Lion.
A Hippogriff is part Eagle, part Horse.

Aye - Hyppogryph, sometimes written hippogriff etc etc is a variant on teh griffon theme. Normall Hippogriffs have the rear quarters of a horse, the forelimbs of a great predatory beast like a bear or cat, and the head, shoulders and wings of an eagle.
A good hybrid type creature you could combine is the old Warhammer fantasy Imperial or High Elf pegausu read quarters, Karl Franz/Eltharion Griffon forequarters, and then find alternate clawed fore limbs, or even use the Eagle forelimbs and bulk them out a little to make it appear more beast-like...

Thanks everyone for the responses.
Kithre, thanks for the suggestions. Already decided I am going for Hind quarters from the green knight model, front half, (head wings, body and claws,) from the great eagle model. Altering the claws a little, and the wings a bit.
