    Hi Everyone,


    I have been working on this one since August 2013...so I am very happy that I have finally finished it (now I can move on to something new). I learnt a lot painting this figure and enjoyed it immensely. It is the Nocturna Storm Griffon - 54mm.

    I came across an article that said that the natural enemy of the Griffon is the horse, so I decided that they would battle it out...and the Griffon would win.

    I hope you like it...all comments welcome.

    Stunning work on the Griffin. A bit too gory for my taste but the Griffin looks really good.

    A magnificent piece of work Anthony. Although I'm not a fantasy painter I like to look at fantasy work and this is a beauty. Not too gory for me.
    TESCO will be in contact soon ;)
    Cheers

    The brushwork on the feathers is outstanding and very precise. The overall composition is impressive. I like the horses head. A gift from the Corleone family perhaps???;)

    hi Tony, thanks for the great comments, believe it or not it was the god father that inspired the addition of the horses head. I had a big space to cover on the base and I was racking my brain on how to do it....I was watching the movie....and there was the scene with the horses head:dead:.

    Hi Derek, usually i do hitoric figures but this was too beautiful to pass up. I have been away from England for about 10 years now so I had to read your comments twice in order to get the TESCO comment, I had forgotten the scandal that broke out...:sick:. But compared to the mad cow disease which was all the rage in England when I was a kid... I will take a bot of horse meat any day!!!:sick: Anthony.
