The Ape Attack! subset from the Bones 4 Core set

I chose to go different paths with each of them. These are so big, I think they are more useful as individuals than as a team. After all, there is only so much you can to with three giant apes, one of which that for some reason seems to have joined the Roman legions.

 

And I was not kidding when I said they were giant apes:

They are twice the height of a man, and what looks like ten times the mass.

 

 

#83: The Great White Ape

Drybrushed from black with a series of offwhites, ochre, beige and greys, and a couple of skin tones on the nekkid flesh.

This one does double duty as an abominable snowman.

40mm base.

 

#84: The Barlgura

A barlgura is a D&D chaotic evil demonic creature of the Abyssal plane. Described as semi-intelligent and brutally violent, looking like an eight foot tall blue-skinned Orangutan with wickedly sharp claws. The model is of a much larger Gorilla…Well… close enough. Let’s just call him King Louie and leave it at that. “Oobee-doo! I wanna beat up you-oo-oo!”

50mm base

 

#85: Ingkay Ongkay

“My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.” (Gladiator, 2000)

 

So, Reaper…Pray tell. What is it I am not familiar with here? In what context might I need a giant romanesque-armoured gladius-wielding ape exactly?

 

50mm base.
