    Any Abyssal Terror ideas?

    I'd like to have a Vampire on an Abyssal Terror (or at least Hellstead) for use in larger games / for a change.

    How ever I am stumped for inspiration, and with no news on a GW produced version of either of these it looks like improvising is required.

    Has anyone given any thought to these two mounts and what they might use to represent them?

    I thought about this thing: Games Workshop Online Store — Nightmare Dragon

    With a Bat head. Not sure how to go about fashioning such a head. Possibly a felbat, or maybe some sort of model bat, or sculpting out of green stuff.

    Then maybe some green stuff fur and/or hangy bits.

    that's hideous. Is that an actual model or a bunch of parts cobbled together (looks like the latter)

    Have you seen the artwork for the Abyssal Terror? A bunch of parts cobbled together with a bat head is pretty spot-on... ( also I think the longer you stare at it, the less stupid it appears. Kinda like 'abstract art' for miniatures)

    Really not fond of the artist they got working on the VC stuff, the one they did a feature on in the February's WD. Just looks like he vomitted on an otherwise mediocre drawing.

    Isn't Abyssal Terror just the new name for the Winged Nightmare? couldn't you just could use the old model, maybe with a bat head switch if you had to have a bat head?

    I had a project lined up for my new Winged Nightmare, now it seems it will be my new Abyssal Terror.

    It is the body of the shaggoth, with the wings from The Lord of Change and the head of a tuskgor. And greenstuff to make it all fit together. Plus a little creativity, my weak point...

    Nope:

    Nightmare - Basic Mount
    Hellstead - Winged Nightmare
    Abyssal Terror - Monstrous Mount
    Zombie Dragon

    Liking the sound of it, the Shaggoth body is a very clever base to build up from

    i thought it would be cool to get the dark elf manticore model and add a couple of parts from the vargulf to it. like the head for example.
