Day 17 – Favorite Animal/Insect/Archanid
Since my first two picks, Ankheg and Aurumvorax are technically classified as Magical Beasts, I guess I’ll go somewhat more mundane, here: Giant Scorpion. Sure, they appear in the Fallout games, and I have a really awesome miniature I assembled & painted using real-world photos of scorpions as a reference, but I think my love of them goes all the way back to Clash of the Titans. This is the second time a Harryhausen creation has made this list. I loved Ray Harryhausen’s films as a kid (and still do), and I watched Clash of the Titans dozens of times back when I was first getting into D&D, so it’s really no surprise.
