I have wanted to paint my Ambull miniature for many years now. I was first really fired up about doing it back in late 2010 when the 5th Ed Dark Eldar Codex was released. I thought that the Ambull would make a great Clawed Fiend for use with a Beastmaster. I was stuck on a paint scheme until I saw Gholascale's Ambull. It seemed perfect to me, though I wouldn't go with blue for it's mandibles. Anyway, I kept that idea in the 'mental file' until such time that I could get around to it. With our local group still playing Kill Team, I figured it was a good time to finally bring this seed of an idea to fruition.

After scouring the web for painting ideas I settled on sticking with something close to what Gholascale did and the orignal ad from White Dwarf.

It moved fast, in contrast to it's lumbering appearance. You can read about it here.

|Finised in all it's gorey glory.|
And after the addition of some grass tufts, it was now finished. I enjoyed working on this old Ambull miniature, as I have wanted to paint it since that first White Dwarf article from way back in '88. And it was fun having it chase around some of Da Masta Cheef's Orks in that last game. I look forward to fielding it again.
