Maledrakh's Harlequin Miniatures' Raptor (legless)

Recommended Posts

Actually making some time to get some painting done this week. Still, what few minis I actually get around to painting this month will all go into the resolutionary challenge total. As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread.


 


I found this Raptor in one of the piles of old miniatures that are lying about the place, and I took mercy upon it, as it only had one leg.


 


So I mounted it with some wire, slapped some plastic putty over that, and when painted, hid it in the bushes.


 


Hiding slightly embarassing things in bushes is grossly underrated.

...I think it worked.


 


I love these lizardmen raptors made by Harlequin Miniatures in the 90s. Still one of the better dinosaur-like sculpts out there. And there was a full line up of matching lizardmen, including larger raptors with riders. I made an army for "Raven", Harlequins battle game, with them back in the day. Maybe I'll dig them out of storage and rebase them for Kings of War or something.


 


30mm base, metal.

Very nice fix!  I've resorted to "decorative base elements" to hide miniature disfigurements as well.  Sometimes it's an opportunity to go with a more adventurous bit of basing elements that I wouldn't try with a perfectly intact figure on account of the horror of actually *obscuring* precious detail.  So -- hey, if it's NOT THERE, it's not an issue.  ;)

      The full moon casts a pale blue light across the rugged white landscape. Tall pine trees cling to the rocky ground, branches stirring, shedding their cold white burden as the wolves breathe past. The pack is on the move, and the land is trembling beneath their step. They move with purpose, something is not as it was before. There! An affront; a boat pulled ashore, a small group of fur-clad prey around a campfire, round shields and axes in sight. From the treeline the windwolves move, silent, swift, cold gusts of dark shadow, spirits of malice descending upon the men with claws of ice and fangs of doom.

      Continuing with the random minis for now: Cavalry.

      Bones Cavalry that is. Over the course of 4 delivered kickstarters of Bones models, Reaper has released a total of 9 mounted models. (11 if you count the flying saucer from the Bones 2 Chronoscope Expansion and the chopper bike mounted Sophie (the one and only Bones KS model delivered in metal!) in the first Bones kickstarter.)

      Well, "mounted" is also a theme to use to get something painted, isn't it? And with 9 or 11 models to go for, it should be possible to get done in a timely manner.
      Here are the first pair of them that I have painted up.
