Here's another Tarrasque option -- the Violater or Vindicator or whatever from the latest Spawn series....

I like the goo, particularly the pooled goo at the bottom. It's well-done, it looks right wherever you place the guy.

Yep. That is one scary looking monster there. I bet it would scare my players if I placed that on the gaming table and announced it had just come through a dimensional portal. Makes for a good Tarrasque, or powerful evil demon or Far Realms nightmare-from-beyond.

Please indulge my ignorance, but what is a tarrasque?

This was mentioned a while back, when Tom posted a pic of a different toy beastie. It's a "colossal magical beast," according to the 3E MM (not 3.5). It is "a scaly biped 70 feet long and 50 feet tall, with two horns on its head, a lashing tail, and a reflective carapace. It weights about 130 tons." (yes, I realize this doesn't describe the pic I posted...)


EDIT: Here's the original thread, complete with more detail:
www.dwarvenforge.com/dwarvenforums/viewtopic.php?t=540


I'm not a terrasque expert, I consider it basically a Really Big Magical Monster. It's something some minis fans really want to see, so this is a decent substitute. The key is Big and Biped. There's a drawing in the MM, and if you scan for Tom's thread you'll get lots of more details, including more page citations to various sources.

I wasn't necessarily thinking of this as a tarrasque per se, just as a good example of any number of giant massive beasts a party might face.

I would drool over that monster, but it appears it's already done that for me. ;)
