Chris Palmer I was at my local Giant supermarket this past week and saw that they had already started putting out their Halloween merchandise. One of the things that caught my eye was a box containing a variety of large skeletal animals; specifically, a spider, rat, and bat. They were priced at $3.99 each.
While quite large, I think they still have gaming potential as giant creatures, or as fodder for making bone-based terrain. And they are surprisingly detailed for “toys”. I picked up one of the spiders, shown below with a Reaper 28mm figure. I know spiders don’t really have skeletons, but I thought this might make the basis for a cool piece of fantasy terrain, specifically for Frostgrave. I’m not sure how I’m going to use it exactly but I have a few ideas in mind.
And, as I look at the photo above, I’m thinking you could cobble together the bat and rat figures to make a really cool dragon skeleton!
