While doing research on the Babylonians and such I found two “monsters” or gods that would make the CD theme stand out more. After reading the Dragon thread, I thought maybe call the beast a Taimat or a Bahamut. Yeah, I know that they are FF characters and such, but they have strong roots in babylonian mytos and would make the theme really stand out. I was thinking one of them as a Taurus. It is going to be modeled from the carnifex I have talked about long ago. I think I will call it the Taimat beetle. What do you guys think?
As an assyrian fan, I think any CD army must have some kind of babilonical influence. Personnaly I use a tomb scorpion because he looks great and the scorpion-man myths can be traced to mesopotamian art.
Seems like a great idea. And it seems even better if your going to use the carnifex. Cant wait to see it
In any way I think it should be Tiamat, and not Taimat, spelling the name of that monster wrong twice in one post surely arragavates the Dark Father!
Correct me if Im wrong but wasnt Tiamat a God and not an animal? It wouldnt seem right to make a beast named after a Real life Godess in Warhammer.
