Since the Bones 3 thread was getting filled up with this kind of chatter, I've decided to make a thread and see if we can move the off topic dinosaur talk here XD

What would you look for in a dinosaur mini?

I'd love feathered raptors, of this sort (only a bigger raptor, not the tiny Yixianosaurus i drew )

I'm not a fan of the very chicken like raptor, but a raptor with a fine coat of feathers and wings on the arms and tail plume, and a head crest, would be awesome!

 

I'd also love to see Stegosaurus and any sort of Ceratopsian (Triceratops, or Styracosaurus, Diabloceratos, Rubeosaurus, etc)

 

Carnivore wise, the classic rex (preferably non-feathered, i don't much like the looks of feathered rexes), Carnotaurus, or maybe Allosaurus

 

Maybe some peaceful herbivores like Parasaurolophus or Anklyosaurus

 

What about you?

Feathers are very hard.  I rolled a 0 on my first try, having it (vulture) sent back to me by Reaper for a strip down and redo. After much teeth nashing and help from Gene, I managed to pull off what is still one of my favorite sculpts of mine today; but I hesitate to try another bird as it was A LOT of futzy detail work.

what do I want for dino minis? I think 'yes' is a sufficient answer.

I was struggling with how to answer the question. Thank you for verbalizing it for me. This is my answer as well.

      I backed their original Mythic Battles: Pantheon. Good miniatures. 
       
      IIRC, Mythic Battles: Pantheon core sets in the KS, and possibly some expansions in the PM. Expansion reprints were difficult because printer required a minimum number, and Monolith wasn't sure how many sets backers would want. Also, let me know how their fulfilment has been going. (Not to be confused with their former partner, Mythic games.)

      Another KS by Titan Forge. I have to admit that I haven't played Bloodfields yet, but I like the minis.

      I believe these are inspired by Terry Pratchet's Discworld Guards, although I'm biased towards Paul Kidby's art.

      Story
      After the estate of one Fomo Barrowblight (who many moons ago, and with heavily laden bags, had said he was just off for a morning walk, never to return) was sold at auction, there came to light a strange scroll that appeared to be a map of the final resting place of a lost tribe of halflings.  These cousins lived down in the scorching Southlands, amidst endless dunes that had buried whole cities and civilisations.
      The newly elected (and so still very enthusiastic) Halfling Town Council had organised an expedition to make contact with their fellow halflings, with the aim of swapping some stories and recipes, and who knows, perhaps even coming back with some interesting new cakes.
      And, after many great perils and travails, the expedition found itself in a mysterious location known as 'The Valley of the Things'.  Here, recipes in strange hieroglyphs were marked on tomb walls,  guarded jealously by High Priests and long mummified pastry chefs.  
      The expedition takes time to assuage the fears of the High Priests that they are here to steal the sacred recipes and make formal diplomatic relations.  But Fomo Barrowblight and another mysterious figure seem intent on stealing the recipe to the sacred pie and have already gleaned some of the ingredients...
      To the Mummy's Tomb!
      Introducing a series of  Eight Fantasy Miniatures in 28mm scale from a halfling expedition to the burial grounds of their cousins, in the desert southlands. 
        Halfling Town Council Five
      The latest elected Halfling Town Council, has been responsible for launching the expedition to the distant Southlands, as always, it is made up of eight different townsfolk from all walks of life.
       
       
       
      I've already pledged for the whole set, why haven't you?
