Predators: 1000 AD Bio:

"The Predator of the Emerald Isles finds mention only in a burnt page from the 'Leabhar na hUidhri' (pronc. 'yower no hoodra'), or "The Book of Dun Cow". Compiled c. 1100 A.D by a thousand Catholic monks, it records myths, legends, customs and events dating back to the 7th century - including the arrival, rule, and departure of the 'God of Bones'.

It describes the arrival of a single creature, it's life among a small group of Celts, minor skirmishes, and it's rule as de-facto Chieftain over the course of 3 generations. When word reached it's enclave of a 'beast' slaughtering Norse settlements on the Western continent (modern day North America), the 'God of Bones' departed, and was never seen again."

Great work. Love the concept. Wonder what the beast was that he left to go Hunt ?

"Wonder what the beast was that he left to go Hunt ?" -> I'll be revealing that in Predators: 1000AD Series 2.

Daaaaaang! Straight up awsome! We need more net less Preds like this! You did an amazing job here.

Thanks for the praise John. All of my upcoming Predators are net-less, as I use the shirtless Tracker-Predator torso to texture the sculpt + a leatherworking texture stamp. The effect looks better (and is far easier to paint!) than the NECA netting.
