Impending Search Synonyms (Sample):
Cautions: The collection is sorted not by name, but by unpainted visual appearance, in this case, that of animal conglomerates, sorted first by body type. Creatures that are half-human are listed in the separate Half-Humans gallery. Dragons also have their own category, and the Hydra, Basilisk and Cockatrice will be found there. Since this collection may exceed the page length limit, links will be provided for each category as they become overlarge. Also, the collection cannot be expected to be kept up to date, as it is not the main purpose of this wiki to indulge the viewer with these special galleries; hence, a proper search should ensue if your figure cannot be quickly identified from this gallery.
To find the identity of the figure: Simply click on the thumbnail, then, on the page with the pic, scroll down to see what links to that pic and follow the links.
Editors: Please observe the rules and requests at the top of the edit page.
Sculptors: Take note what categories seem neglected!
Collectors: Enjoy the eye candy!
