Gloranthan Bestiary: Chaos Dragonsnail

A bit of Runequest roleplaying nostalgia today in the form of a repainted and rebased "drakesnail" repurposed for use as a mutated Gloranthan dragonsnail.  These were always one of my favorite monsters from the Glorantha setting and it was nice (albeit surprising) to find a perfect proxy for one in the Dreamblade range.  Getting the model off the Dreamblade base was a major pain, but it looks much better on 60mm round base.  Also has some obvious utility if you're running a roleplaying game set in Larry Niven's "The Magic Goes Away" setting, although this thing looks pretty hard to kill with a lousy glass dagger.
