Conan Kickstarter’s Sabretooth Tiger

As with the wolves, this seems a waste to have been a KS exclusive. Also, I seem to have misplaced the tiles…

Today we have the Sabretooth Tiger from the Conan Kickstarter that I’ve previously painted both the Wolves and some barrels for.

This one is very much a Neglected February model, as I started the bloody thing at the same time as I started those wolves. I finished those wolves over a year ago. I’d already done the orange-to-yellow-to-white shading, but somehow the need to sit down and properly do some realistic tiger stripes was a task that put me off completing it for so long.

I used their official/box art for my guide, though I gave it more natural rear flanks and tail patterning than going really heavy on the dark stripes as in their art.

Here’s the opposite side view.

And alongside a couple of the Conan KS Wolves I mentioned earlier.

As can be seen here compared to the Chaplain, it’s quite a decent sized beast. Not giant-animal sized, but certainly a solid, bulky creature. A Space Marine provides a much more relateable scale shot for many people.
