Otherworld Miniatures Cockatrice
One of my favourite miniatures manufacturers nowadays is the UK's Otherworld Miniatures. Their stock in trade is great 28mm fantasy models with a definite old-school feel. These models are perfect for Otherworld's own fantasy ruleset, as well as other sets like the new Thud & Blunder rules.
In fact, Thud & Blunder was the inspiration for this model - there's a scenario included in the rules called "Catch the Cockatrice" that features a cockatrice as the objective being fought over by the combatants. This was enough for me to order up a cockatrice from Otherworld.
The cockatrice is a pretty cool little model - cast in metal and multi-piece. I didn't pin any of the parts but rather sculpted some additional feathers around the bases of the wings to add some extra strength.
Just a great looking miniature... can't wait to get it out on the table in a game. Maybe someday...
