Yup another project, as if I didn't have enough on my hands. This will take a while, but I will start again. A few decades ago ( before I roamed this Forum) I created a Barbarian Army with Animal allies. I sold it and all I have left are these tiny pics that show only part of it. Also, this was decades ago so I didn't paint as well as I do today ( or at least I think so) Here are the old pics as appetizers, I will soon start the new army. Enjoy!
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 different sub-species of humans concurrently up to about 50.000 years ago. Neanderthals would be one such sub-species, the Hobbits (Homo Florensis) another. Then we (or something) killed off all the others. Some evidence of interspecies breeding is still to be found in our modern DNA. #628-631 These were only shown as silhouettes in the KS. From left to right: Shaman. clubber, spearman, archer. These are technologically advanced cavemen, as shown by their use of the bow. The Shaman. I call him Barney. He succeeded in the Quest for Fire. The clubber, Thag Simmons. He will be known to posterity by the manner of his demise. (Should have stayed clear of the tail end of that Stegosaur.) Fred, the spearman. Used stones of flint to make a sharp spearhead. Archie the bowman. His right hand strategically placed to hide his embarrassing lack of arrows from the others. These were simple and fun to do in regular paints on a black undercoat. I come in search of the answer to the Riddle of Steel! What do you know about it?

I wanted to do a battle scene in a jungle clearing setting. I used (Reaper Set 02395)...(Reaper Figure 02400/converted & modified)...(Ral Partha creature)...(Citadel big mama standing with spear) as the main components for this battle scene. The giant python was scratch molding. It was really fun to design, select and make the varied ground cover & foliage to depict a wide jungle assortment. All rock work was (as always) cast by me out of plaster (cut and carved as needed).
