You can't go wrong with Dinos.

Nobody knows what they looked like anyway.

 

I think these look great and maybe this IS what they looked liked.

 

The striping is well executed.

 

As far as coloration, just look at Dinosaur Dan's crazy sketch book.

 

Edit: How big are these figures compared to the 28mm character figures?

Look good. But they do look like a pain to store and transport.

Absolutely. I haven't figured out a good solution for them yet, other than opening up two or three slots in the ol' foam-filled toolbox per dinosaur.

 

I'd be worried even a foam case wouldn't be gentle enough. Figs like this are why I'm using neodymium magnets in figure bottoms that I'll be painting beyond a drybrush touch up. 

 

Drill a magnet sized hole in the base bottom, epoxy the magnet in and put them into a square Christmas tin or metal box and bam! Snug, secure and stationary.

No doubt. I haven't gotten into magnetizing anything yet. One of these days, perhaps...

      My 8 year old son painted these shortly after his birthday last spring. I actually liked his colors and the pattern on the Carnotaurus. Mostly I was over joyed that he didn’t glob the paint on for once. A few weeks ago I decided to paint the eyes, teeth, claws, and base for him. Them a coat of sealer.  I think they look great for the toy box. Here are my crappy before and after.

      Wasn't totally happy with how this came out. I wanted a reptilian version of a tiger pattern for stalking in the jungle. Colour scheme worked I think and overall it's a great model but it has some issues I struggled with. 
       
      It's not symmetrical, the ridges and scales on each side are in different places and don't align making the patterning problematic. That coupled with the fact that some of the larger scales fade out and a lot of the smaller scales are almost indistinct took some of the fun out if it. Normally I enjoy doing scales and applying washes and dry rushing as well as picking out patterns on individual scales but this was hard work.
       
      Will still make the kids worry when it hits the tabletop though 🙂

      Finished my first mini this year, and oddly enough it was a speedpaint, taking just over an hour...





       
      On the flipside, some of those colours work together really, REALLY well, like Sunrise Orange and Heart Throb Paint.
