I've been back on my long-running Lustria-set Warhammer Quest collection this week, & needed a quick starter to get me back in the flow of painting brightly hued Mesoamerican-inspired monsters - so I painted-up two bases of snakes. These were decorative extras on a sprue of Saurus Cold One riders, & I really like what the sculptor has done with them - they look to be inspired by decorative Aztec serpents, so I painted one of the three types in jade & turquoise hues.
Snakes in Warhammer Quest are not much of a threat to the heroic
Warriors (a paltry 30 gold each for slaying), so I could do with a few
more of these. I had been planning to scratch-build 2D6 bases of snakes
using Green Stuff putty, but these are superior to anything that I
could sculpt. I need to paint up a lot more little critters yet - all the giant spiders, giant bats, & giant rats from the original boxed game, but source or make giant leeches, giant millipedes, giant insects... I do at least have some plastic toys to use as giant lizards, although they are slightly too big in comparison to the others, so I will probably treat them as 'great lizards', & invent some suitable stats of a similar to 'great spiders' (as ridden by forest Goblins).
