I think only the mammoth is anywhere near done, and it doesn't look too cartoony to me. The sabertooth though needs severe work done cause it looks like an oversized rat. I put in for the 80 considering the size of these beasties (about space marines rhino sized) seems like a good enough deal. Though I will likely drop out if it hasnt gotten as far as I'd like.

Looking at that uintathere more closely, it is disturbingly perfectly symmetrical.


It looks like the artist modeled one half, but left just a touch too much width on the face (as sometimes happens when you paint or model what's supposed to be half of something). The wrinkles on its snout got smoothed out and stylized from the sketch design and look like multiple lips, which adds to the impression that the face was stretched horizontally.


Also the eyes are too high on the skull.


This isn't going to satisfy anatomical perfectionists, I'm afraid.

I flagged it to watch but definitely based on the samples these figures would not look "right" next to a lot of lines. Some of the chibi miniature games maybe, or perhaps Myth, but they would be totally out of place otherwise.

The sabertooth looks perfectly symmetrical too.


And both it and the uintathere -- the sabertooth moreso -- have these weird dual shoulder bumps along their backs which aren't there in the concept art. They have big dips along their spines between their mounded up shoulders.

Ehhh. No cartoony for me. Although I'm interested; I have yet to see a decent 28mm dinohyus, and ever since I saw this one at the Denver Museum, I kind of want one.
i-97ab3d0bdc5523d245f4bcd206d44f46-entel...course, he looks a little cartoony, too. But you don't notice that when you're standing three feet from his face and thinking, "This thing could run me down and eat me like a Slim Jim, and probably wouldn't bother making sure I was decently dead first....."

Let's be honest, creation and evolution had an awesome sense of humor.

Sure did, the Ice Age had some hilarious animals


I like Elasmotherium...if the sculpt turns out not too bad, I will be tempted

      Evil Dead 2: The Official Board Game is a tile and miniature based survival horror game for 2-6 Players based on the classic movie.
      The officially licensed Evil Dead 2 Board Game is the tabletop experience Evil Dead 2 fans have been dying for--featuring at least 8 custom figures with art depicting the terrifying and iconic characters, monsters, and locales from the cult classic film. 2-6 players will work together in 60–90 minute sessions to gather pages of the Ex-Mortis while trying to survive demon attacks, supernatural events, and avoid turning into evil deadites themselves.

      A certain platypus managed to snag a Maiden Bust on my behalf.
      I love the sculpt. The casting is... meh. Sorry Reaper, metal is working better for you than resin. The resin had funky tiny chunks on parts, edge of the hand and rose are odd, and lips are a little rough on the edges. Mostly rough edges. I cleaned what I could, and am using gloss varnish on other odd bits to smooth them, but I can't get it all. 
      But in the slightly funky surface, I saw an opportunity. What if she wasn't quite a maiden? What if she was kinda... dead? Not all the way dead. Just becoming dead or undead, as if from a curse. And the rose is the only thing holding the curse at bay. 
      So maybe Cyr is crazy. Maybe Cyr is going to paint something awesome. 
      So far she has gray primer, dabs of gloss varnish, eyes, maiden flesh on one side, dusky flesh on the other, and a base coated rose. 
      Her live area will be blonde. Her dead side will have "white" hair, and a blackish rose. 
      The dusky skin and the vallejo nocturna white flesh are amazingly similar in tone, but very different in feel. Right now the difference is subtle, but as I shade it, the live side will get more rosy and warm, while the dead side will become more gaunt and sullen, like a starving vampire. 
      At least... that's the plan. 
      Think I can pull it off?
