M is for Manticore

The Manticore is one of my favourite mythological beasts. Sometimes they are attributed with tails that can fling barbed spikes, but I think I prefer the version with a scorpion tail. In some settings, notably Games Workshop's Old Worlde (Warhammer Fantasy), they are treated as Chaos Beasts, but I prefer to classify them merely as creatures of the wild. Along with Minotaurs, they are just another form of the so-called "Beastmen."

    That's one scary-looking beast! Thanks for sharing.
