Simian Saturday : Beware the Octorilla!

 Here's a fun beastie originally from Arduin.
The miniature is available here.
Although I gotta admit I kinda prefer the look of the Dreamblade version.
Second one seems more Lovecraftian to me...
What do you guys and gals think?


  1. I approve of all gorillas, octopuses, and chimera thereof.

    From this angle, the Dreamblade kind of just looks like an ape wearing a fashionable Chapeau des Tentacules.

  2. My favorite of the two is the first Octorilla, but I like the second one almost as much, just not as an Octorilla, maybe some other kind of mythos-spawned nightmare.

  3. The new version looks like pure Harryhausen. I prefer the Dreamblade one, myself. It somehow seems more alien and yes, Lovecraftian.


  4. The first one can also double as Cryonax in a pinch.

  5. I love the top mini which is of one of my favorite monsters! Awesome post for an almost forgotten monster!

  6. Perhaps the second one is more Lovecraftian, but the first one is more Harryhausen.

  7. Thanks for all the comments everyone!
    In retrospect I think they are both cool, just serve different purposes! : )
    I'm having to resist ordering the top one, I've got tons of unpainted lead as it is!
