"The banth is a fierce beast of prey that roams the low hills surrounding the dead seas of ancient Mars. Like nearly all Martian animals it is almost hairless, having only a great bristly mane about its thick neck. Its long lithe body is supported by ten powerful legs, its enormous jaws are equipped, like those of the calot or Martian hound, with several rows of long needle-like fangs; its mouth protruding to a point far back of its tiny ears while its enormous protruding eyes of green add the last touch of terror to its awful aspect. As it crept toward me it lashed its powerful tail against its yellow sides." (GM, VIII, p.34)

Before a banth springs to the attack, it emits a terrifying roar requiring all within 6” to save versus fear (DC 13) or be stunned for one round. Banths are nocturnal hunters (infravision) and are encountered in groups of d6. They accumulate no treasure or loot. Frequently banths can be startled by bright lights or loud noises.

“Human flesh is the food most craved by the fierce Barsoomian lion, whose great carcass and giant sinews require enormous quantities of meat to sustain them.” (TMM, V, p.48)

  1. Great Paint Jobs!
    Bronze Age Miniatures makes some great figures. I am planning on using my Banths for Tekumel - non-canon, of course, but what the Hey. They've got 6-legs and look pretty Tekumeli to me!

    I doubt I'll be able to match that paint job though. I was thinking of trying some sort of Tiger Stripe.

  2. Those are some impressive little critters. Have to pick me up some (and thanks for the stat blocks).

  3. If any of you would like either the same paint job or even the tiger stripes please let me know. Would love to work with you!
