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.
