Never knew I needed a winged hippo until I printed and painted this – winged hippos obviously have flamingo wings

Is this a Hippo-griff?

ID: gq3t9z0

Yes, but it changes the way Prisoner of Azkaban plays out in some very strange ways

ID: gq3yf8j

Much more fierce and terrifying than the usual kind.

In age of mythology there was a cheat "WUV WOO" to get a flying purple hippo, good times

Post this in

with the title “pheldagriff proxy” for several updoots. Love the blending work on this. Where is it from?

Thanks! I'll look into that. It's from Dragon Trappers Lodge on Patreon:

Though spelled differently, Feldagrif is an anagram of Garfield, the creator of magic.

I reckon this would fit right in in a Tzeentch army.

That is absolutely beautiful!!! I can't even comprehend how amazing this looks, let alone how to achieve that level of skill. Just WOW!!!

Thank you! I appreciate it!

Obviously. I thought everyone knew that.

ID: gq4e6cj

I thought so too, but ya know, some people just aren't educated on the ways of flying hippos

In what is absolutely not the nerd version of “If you give a mouse a cookie” we would now like to humbly request a gnomish paladin rider.

I'm intrigued...

Never thought I would see something so terrifying and majestic at the same time!

I can't believe that's 3D printed, every time I've seen a 3D printed model they've had that tell-tale blocky/layered look to them.

I'm guessing you either have a really good printer or spent a lot of time sanding?

Awesome work.

ID: gq4a5g9

I have a few very good resin 3D printers, and I print at smaller layer heights. No sanding needed at all. The new generation of printers really makes buying physical models a thing of the past for me

Ah, it's the Questing Pheldagriff. Wonderful!

That's so awesome, I'm gonna get one just to put up on the shelf. How large is it?

ID: gq4k0bi

It's on a 3 inch base with a 5 inch wingspan. 4 inches tall

16 : Anonymous2021/03/07 22:38 ID: gq5d4jc

Obiviously flamingo wings. Any other wings on a hippo would look foolish

Hippos always look like they stepped into Lego 10/10 work

Looks amazing! That’s a bonkers model.

Those are the creamiest blends. How long have you been painting.

ID: gq4hyh6

I've only been serious about it for a year and a half. Painted my first mini about 3 years ago, but only painted sporadically for the year following that. I've been painting 2-4 models a week since this time last year, so I've seen a ton of improvement since then

20 : Anonymous2021/03/07 20:47 ID: gq4xg2o

It's hard to imagine a more terrifying animal to give the gift of flight. Absolutely love your paint work, thanks for sharing!

This is amazing! I started singing this to Sabaton..."When the winged hippos arrive" and realized how absolutely terrifying that would be.

22 : Anonymous2021/03/07 22:05 ID: gq58nhn

I need this for my house hippo!

23 : Anonymous2021/03/07 22:07 ID: gq58w49

Man I’d write a whole one shot adventure called “when pigs fly” just for that mini.

Remind me of the flying purple hippos from Age of Mythology. Neat.

If you make one with dragon style wings can it use bubble beam instead of breath fire. Would love to see that.

How to make a hippo scarier. Give it wings, now it can fly to you.

ID: gq5w50m

Yep, it is truly the definition of "monster"

43 : Anonymous2021/03/08 01:45 ID: gq5xy19

Given how ill tempered hippos are this is more terrifying than a dragon.

Wow this looks absolutely beeeauuutifuuuul.

How did you apply the pink? It looks so perfect.

ID: gq65njs

Thanks! I did what some call "cheating" and used an airbrush to smooth the transition between the purplish gray skin and the pinkish skin

45 : Anonymous2021/03/08 04:02 ID: gq6cfkg

Oh man. And the green gradient around the base - excellent choice. The rock is phenomenal. The folds and the eye - wow. Gun to my head if I had to nitpick, the model's teeth could be less straight; crooked is the word, I think. Awesome work. You nailed it!

46 : Anonymous2021/03/08 04:19 ID: gq6e3sn

If it was a hippogriff it’d have the front legs and beak of a flamingo too right? It’s more like a pegasus. I was thinking pegapotomus.

47 : Anonymous2021/03/08 06:19 ID: gq6o6pl

If it would try to fly he probably would just look like a moron flappin his wings

OMG I need this model in my life....
