Yesterday, I visited my friend Jey Legarie at his house to see the Master Moulds and Master Paints of his upcoming miniatures. What an honour. I have been following the progress of Jey’s Kickstarters for a while now, but the pictures on that site really do no justice to to the size of this model.Wow! For a size comparison on Kickstarter, the Behemoth is paired with a Colossal red Dragron by Wizards of the Coast. That is a neat model but totally out of my frame of reference for a size comparison, so when Jey gave me an invite, I brought over some of my Frostgrave Models for reference. These guys are Huge!!!
|Look at the size of these creatures!!! The Apprentice and Wizard Square off with their Behemoth mounts. Who will win this epic challenge for power in Frostgrave?|
When I saw the Behemoth in real life, I was blow away by the size and beauty of these two Master paint models on Jey’s Kitchen table. To get a sense of scale, I set out my Giant that I use for Frostgrave (by Reaper Minis) and put it beside the Behemoth. The Behemoth Dwarfs that Giant. Check it out!
|The Behemoth versus a Reaper Giant. The Behemoth is Ginormous.|
|I then compared it to the official Necromancer and Apprentice for Frostgrave by North Star Military Figures. They look so tiny beside this creature.|
|The Behemoth would make a great boss creature for Frostgrave. Check out my Wizard, Apprentice, Captain and even a Giant facing off against this Monster! My bets are on the Monster winning this epic fight!|
|This is an official Pathfinder Miniature by Reaper Miniatures. She is no bigger than the Behemoth’s foot!|

Now, these behemoths are built with a space to place a rider on its head. It is a neat little feature that I like. Check these pictures out.
|The Apprentice is mounted on a 25mm round base and fits perfectly.|
After showing me the Behemoth, Jey showcased some of his other master sculpt miniatures to me. The first mini is a potential stretch goal, the “Clawed Deviant.” It is fairly large so I put my Frostgrave Wizard by it for a size comparison. This guy looks great for use as a monster in a D&D game.

|This rat-man was my favourite of the extra minis. I don’t remember his name, but he is ultra cool. His tail (not pictured) is super long. Perhaps even longer than the mini itself.|
|This human mini looks pretty cool.|
|An Orc Shaman.|
|This is an imp. He is very small.|
It was really interesting spending some time with Jey yesterday to talk about his Kickstarter. I would like to thank Jey for the opportunity to chat and learn more about the industry while taking some pictures of great minis. I really can see the Behemoth fitting well into any tabletop RPG game, but my angle and background make me want to use it in a wargame. I imagine the Behemoth being used as a massive beast in Frostgrave, a rampaging Dinosaur in A Fistful of Kung Fu or some sort of proxy monster of a colossal sized beast in any popular fantasy miniatures game. On my way out, Jey gave me a copy of his Card Game, Dungeon Crawler.
I hope that my readers enjoyed this article. The Behemoth is a very cool model and if you are interested, get in on it quick. The Kickstarter is currently fully funded and doing its final push before ending on Moday, August 1 at 9pm EDT.

|How epic would a tabletop battle between two Behemoths and their riders be?! I think that concept would be so cool to bring to a wargame.|
