I really like it! I really want to this see this painted by one of the better painters. Like Sigur
Really like this model. Wish it was a tenner cheaper, but 'meh' this is Forge World! This this beast could find a home with my Lizardmen, get some nice shocking greens around the head, maybe a bit of blue, great tropical horror!

Good model, but those rules are seriously kinda overpowered. after a mere 2 rounds of combat, statistically, it would eat 1/3 of any enemy unit, and it only gets better. Also it can snipe?
Had they given it Regeneration, it would have been completely bonkers.

Like my Sculpts? Order them from:
Troll Forged Miniatures
I like it. It like a decent stand in for a chaos dragon.
Love it, love the rules. If I hadn't just dropped $600 on car repairs I would have on ordered now for my Beastmen.
I really like the whole model (base, pose, etc.) and his style in particular.
I wish they can produce some dragon, too, in a "relaxed", natural pose.
I think it looks good, Though hard to justify the price.
one of the best thing to come form them in ages. now were to get £60 from
Love the model and the rules. Will work well with several of my armies. Ordered
Wow, I think it's a very awesome sculpt, just wish it wasn't so HUGE! looks almost too big to fit in with regular warhammer models. that thing is going to dwarf my dragon!! it's on a chariot base, I think it should have been monstrous beast size at most. rules are totally over the top - really, every model in the combat takes increasingly painful wounds?! really?! with rules like that, the thing should have been significantly more expensive. but I do love the model...
Well yea but that includeds Your models as well.
so its not going to get a lot of suport
from the rest of your army.
That basilisk is awesome. I'll be honest and say that although warhammer forge has done some good stuff I've only bought a few things, and none of the big things. But I'm going to get one of these as it is amazing.
Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better then the lame rock thing !
well played forge world, if there are giant chaos spawn in the new Chaos marine book I will buy it.
Would make a good Lord of Change
they're dalek bumps

£60 does seem resaonable, as Forgeworld models go, but is it just me or does their pricings seem pulled out of a hat sometimes? Like, internally relative between their models (just because the bottom of the forgeworld page with it had "recommended products" that made me notice)? The Curs'd Ettin is £36 for example, and the Rouge Idol was, what, £65? Not to mention the Fimir being cheaper than comparable GW-main plastic kits, but that is mostly them to blame for racing up in price from below... What are they basing their pricing on, one wonders... it's not like ordinary plastic kit where we can see a reasonably stable pricetag of how much models you get, salted a bit with a premium for kits that will not be sold in as large numbers per customer (eg the infamous Goldswords)...
Anywhoo... style.... thumbs up. It's the classical Basilisk (from the woodcut bestiaries of old), probably via the DnD interpretation of those... Not really minding the size, sure the classical mythology basilisk is hatched from a chicken egg and the size of a dog or so, but, hey, monster-size works too. Would have been interesting to see them doing a series of "small" monsters, infantry size.
Rules; Seems ok to me... don't see where Forrest strider comes from (not that it matters that much, ask any Wood Elf), and as for the Gaze being a missile weapon, as someone complained about, well it has to have some rules mechanic, and it is either that, or making it "passive", by having the target trying to avoid the gaze (say with an Initiative test). It is a bit odd that it gets the benefit of a Sniper attack, but without the drawback of actually having that rule (like the Cocatrice...), and the whole "so long as it is in the front rank or may otherwise be clearly seen" thing is going to raise questions... what is "clearly seen"? Is it TLOS-style as long as you can see a spot of the "body" of the model behind another, or is it regarding things like a hovering Slann in a unit of Templeguard?
The Aura of Vitriol:... damn, that's killy! And we do have a default of such wounds being included in CR, don't we?
I really, really like this guy a lot.
Great, distinctive pose and looks unique and Warhammery (if I may coin an adjective), whilst tipping a nod to the D&D iteration.
Sixty quid, eh? I'm tempted...
That's my story and I'm sticking to it,
