  1. At the very end of the Lost Valley, the bossfight: Clubtail! A plant eating 4-ton tank armed with a deadly morning star tail, an armoured hide with spikes, -a fantasy version of an Ankylosaur. The clubtail is larger than the fossil record of Ankylosaur supports. Also the spikes are overstated in comparison. A lot. At any rate, the Ankylosaur was contemporary with the Tyrannosaurus Rex and the Triceratops. All are from what is now North America in the late Cretaceous period, roughly 68 million years ago. It needed that armour. The question remains: What did it use the cl
  2. Some time in the late 1990s I did an entire lizardman army for the fantasy wargame Raven by Harlequin miniatures. I am thinking of rebasing and touching up this army as a generic, system agnostic one. That army had some smaller raptors and also raptor riders. The paint scheme here is similar to how I painted those lizardmen back in the day, so these raptors should fit right in with this army. 44081: Raptor Hunting Pack (5) The paint scheme is rather simple and quick to paint and does not really require much precision: Deep green over black undercoat, follow
  3. Where several of the other Lost Valley dino-beasts have extra fantasy elements to them, such as extra horns. spiney ridges, a third digit on the vestigial front limbs and such, this one is just about picture perfectly based on a real dinosaur: The Carnotaurus. The Carnotaurus lived at some point during the Late Cretaceous period, that lasted from about 100 million to 66 million years ago. There have been found several fossils with bones and skin impressions that show scales, ridges and bumps in the hide. No sign of feathers though. The fossils are all found in South
  4. So, is this inspired by Megalania, or is it something else entirely? Megalania was a giant monitor lizard that lived in Australia up to about 50.000 years ago, and might have been about this size compared to a human. It did as far as I know not have a spiney ridge all down the back or horizontally along the tail. Or is this more of a Crocodilian precursor like Dynamosuchus Collisensis that lived a whopping 230 million years ago, at the very Dawn of the Dinosaurs? That one would be smaller though, and still not have the back- and tailspines. At any rate, Hornslasher:
  5. Click to witness the magnificence of the Giant Mammoth God!
  6. The third set of humanoids from the Lost Valley Expansion of the Bones 4 kickstarter is the Orcs of the Jade Fire tribe: Featuring an all-female cast of hard bodied primitives, with abs to break rocks on and buns of bronze. The barbaric splendor of these women rival that of the bodybuilder cast of any 80's Sword and Sorcery movie. Apart from the fact that said 80's movies usually feature male bodybuilders with any females being more of the centrefold variety both in body type and costume budget. The burning question would be: what do the male members of the Jade Fire Tribe look
  7. Naturally, the giants of the Lost Valley are Stone Giants, seeing as the Lost Valley is in the Stone Age. FeeFie, Fo and Fum the three Stone Giants. I rebased them on 60mm bases. click to see more pics
  8. What is a faux-prehistoric setting without Cavemen? The stereotypical fur-clad, monosyllabic unwashed barbarian that whacks a woman over the head with a club and then drags her by the hair into a cave? Or at least, sporting the "cave man" look that was popularised in The Flintstones and The Far Side. The reason these types are prehistoric lies in the name. Pre-history, as in "before recorded time". Which really is most of time. We don't really know all that much about prehistoric man other than what can be gleaned through archeology. We do know that there existed several differe
  9. The mighty Mumlaaaaaaaak! With an attendant caveman, just to highlight how huge this guy is. I just finished him this morning, and with him done I only have one more model to paint from the Bones 4 Lost Valley expansion. His axe incorporates a nude fertility idol, so I've created a link to the uncropped front view.
  10. Hooray! It's an entire tribe of orc warrior women ready to crack some heads! I rebase all of my Reaper models, but these had such thin integrated bases that I was able to glue them directly onto Reaper's 32mm round gaming bases and still keep some of the original details. You can see this most clearly with the top of the skull on the base of the Jade Fire Champion (the warrior with the two-handed axe) and the bleached ribcage at the feet of the Jade Fire Shaman.
  11. Here's a bunch of giant animals from the Bones 4 Lost Valley expansion: the axebeak (44075), giant snake (44078), giant cave sloth (44079) and cave bear (44082). My typical color palette preferences tend to be fairly muted but I experimented with primary colors on the axebeak.
  12. He's big. He's green. He's covered in spikes. He's your friend and mine: the hornslasher.
  13. I hadn't planned on this purplish skintone for these guys. Originally it was going to be much redder, but I wasn't paying attention to the colors I was mixing, and the basecoat ended up looking lighter and tanner than I had intended. Instead of starting fresh, I made a wash with a lot of purple in it and applied it liberally to their skin, and this was the result.
  14. Here's a lovely family of primitive hominids for your enjoyment. The two cavemen and the caveboy are below, but you'll have to follow the links to see the cavewoman and the fertility idol, since there's some paleolithic nudity involved. Shaman and Fertility Idol (Front) Shaman and Fertility Idol (Back)
  15. I just finished this up yesterday. The color scheme was taken from one of my kids' picture books (How Do Dinosaurs Eat Their Food?); there was a polacanthus in there that was just as spiky as this guy, so I thought the green and purple would look nice.
  16. 44079 Giant Cave Sloth (#617) Fossils of Megatherium (which literally means "Great Beast") aka the giant ground sloth have been found in deposits dated to the Pliocene era 5.33 million and up to the Holocene, about 8.000 years ago. Which means it actually may have been contemprorary to early modern humans. Who in turn might even have killed them off. After all, a 4 ton elephant sized sloth might be both easy to catch and good eating. 50mm base. Sculpted by Jason Wiebe. Great Beasts indeed! From the Lost Valley expansion
  17. 44075 Axebeak (#608) Axebeak, or Phorusrhacos, was one of the great terror birds of the Miocene era, about 23-2.6 million years ago. Also it is, in fact, the direct forebearer of the modern era Chocobo bird. This Primal Chocobo was rather more bloody minded than the modern one, and would not accept any riders whatsover. The base I printed out for it is 65x35mm. Sculpted by Jason Wiebe Great Beasts indeed! From the Lost Valley expansion Bones 4 kickstarter, 2019 Reaper Miniatures Made in Bones Black PVC ava
  18. 44082 Cave Bear (#624) The cave bear lived from the Pleistocene era (That's the Ice Ages to us normal folks) which lasted from 2.580.000 years ago to about 11.700 years ago. However, it seems to have gone extinct about 24.000 years ago. Which certainly is contemporary with modern humans. Them cave bears must have been delicious. And the shaggy furs kept us warm in those cold, cold caves. 60x35mm base. Sculpted by Jason Wiebe. Great Beasts indeed! From the Lost Valley expansion Bones 4 kickstarter, 2019
  19. 44078 Giant Snake (#616) Yeah, snakes have been around since the Garden of Eden. The earliest fossils of snakes we have date from the Cretaceous period, 145-66 million years ago). Snakes seem to be a successful group of animals, still alive and slitherin'. I tried to give it a relatively realistic patterning with colouration that might work on the autumnal flock I use these days. 32mm base. Sculpted by Julie Guthrie Great Beasts indeed! From the Lost Valley expansion Bones 4 kickstarter, 2019 Reaper Miniatures
  20. 44067 Skywing Stormcaller (#605) Pteranodonman! I modelled the paint scheme after a seagull. This one has a South American Prehispanic vibe going on. Probably on account of the headdress. Not the macahuitl at all. No sirree Bob! 32mm base. These are members of the Sauroid Tribes according to the flavour text. (Assuming the "Sauriod" is a typo, and the later "Sauroid" is the correct name). Each of "these warring tribes are highly territorial and will brook no trespassers on their sacred lands", and they constantly battle both amongst themselves and with the warlike
  21. 44065 Thunderfoot Defender (#603) Triceratopsman! Mostly the same colours as the upcoming Triceratops aka Thunderfoot Behemoth. 35mm base. These are members of the Sauroid Tribes according to the flavour text. (Assuming the "Sauriod" is a typo, and the later "Sauroid" is the correct name). Each of "these warring tribes are highly territorial and will brook no trespassers on their sacred lands", and they constantly battle both amongst themselves and with the warlike Jade Fire Clan orcs. Cross referencing the tribe names in the flavor text with the ki
  22. 44063 Blacktooth Savage (#601) Tyrannosaurman! Painted in mostly the same scheme as the T-Rex-lookalike Blacktooth Terror I recently painted. Black and red being markers for "evil". He likes to wear thunderfoot skulls as pauldrons. 40mm base. These are members of the Sauroid Tribes according to the flavour text. (Assuming the "Sauriod" is a typo, and the later "Sauroid" is the correct name). Each of "these warring tribes are highly territorial and will brook no trespassers on their sacred lands", and they constantly battle both amongst themselves and wi
  23. 44066 Bloodcrest Smasher (#604) Parasaurolophusman! Just some old-school dino colours for this one. 35mm base. These are members of the Sauroid Tribes according to the flavour text. (Assuming the "Sauriod" is a typo, and the later "Sauroid" is the correct name). Each of "these warring tribes are highly territorial and will brook no trespassers on their sacred lands", and they constantly battle both amongst themselves and with the warlike Jade Fire Clan orcs. Cross referencing the tribe names in the flavor text with the kickstarter expansion im
  24. The second add on tie-in to the Lost Valley: the Thunderfoot Behemoth, for 8 dollars in the kickstarter campaign. An almost-Triceratops, biggest difference is the crest of horns around the rim of it's skullplate that the fossil record does not quite support as far as I know. I went with the same-ish colour for this and the thunderfoot defender sauroid, as they were painted at the same time, and why not? I ditched the original base and made a 125x100mm for it instead. Paint big minis with big brushes! I used a 12mm wide make up brush for most of this
  25. 44064 Armorback Barbarian (#602) Anklyosaurman! I found a picture of a tortoise with this colouration, so I went with it 32mm base. These are members of the Sauroid Tribes according to the flavour text. (Assuming the "Sauriod" is a typo, and the later "Sauroid" is the correct name). Each of "these warring tribes are highly territorial and will brook no trespassers on their sacred lands", and they constantly battle both amongst themselves and with the warlike Jade Fire Clan orcs.
