 Lore:

Though the Letonan Savannah is no stranger to dangerous creatures, weather, and events, no phenomena are more dangerous or rampant in their destruction than the fires that are spread by these massive elementals, whose appearance seems to be linked to exceptionally dry and hot seasons. Grasses burn at the slightest touch from one of these creatures, setting the brush aflame and consuming massive swaths of land. Though the creatures themselves are perhaps a bit less dangerous than some of the larger beasts on the savannah, Bushfire Boars have the capacity to do the most real damage to the populations that live here.

Although Bushfire Boars don't seem to cause trouble intentionally, their mere existence is a threat to many who live on the savannah. This has resulted in a widespread cooperative effort between tribes to hunt these mystical creatures down and eliminate them. Unfortunately, although this effort has drastically reduced the Boars' numbers, it has also created a deep seated antipathy towards humanoids in these creatures, who now tend to attack or flee on sight, both of which are potentially disastrous, as even in retreat, these creatures set the surrounds ablaze.

These creatures are particularly averse to loud noises. The few researchers that have survived a trip to study them think that this was originally because loud claps of thunder typically foreshadow rain on the savannah, which these creatures are, understandably, not fond of. Because of this aversion, they often stay away from larger populations. A Boar can often be found in sparsely populated areas with large rock outcroppings that it can take cover underneath, particularly when the rains are falling or closing in.

The flames covering the bodies of these boars are exceptionally hot, and are not easily quelled. However, if these flames can somehow be eliminated, the boar goes with them, as its life is tied to these fires. This is, unfortunately, much easier said than done. The rains across the savannah weaken the creatures, but even in full rainfall, they can survive. Ice and cold seem to be particularly effective, however. So if you're in a pinch, that will be your best bet.

 

The Bushfire Boar miniature, Resin printed in high level detail for tabletop games such as D&D 5e.

The models comes in multiple pieces that can be glued together as well as the stat block provided in physical form.

This model comes in the colour grey and is unpainted.

Due to the nature of resin printing, small artifacts may still remain on the model which can be sanded away. I do my best to remove as many as I can however some may be missed.

 

Please note that some model come split in parts or split from their base and require some sort of adhesive like super glue to attach to the other parts.
