best i can think of is a excessively spikey version from the family Mahajangasuchidae, or land crocs. Maybe even Mahajangasuchus itself. Definitely not one of the longer-legged varieties like kaprosuchus. Its head isn't really croc-like like that family but it's the closest i've been able to match them

 

Or they gave Megalania a ridged spikey back and horn.

They're discovering new dinosaur species all the time. Look up Ambopteryx, announced just a few weeks ago.

 

I think when the Avengers went back in time, they caused something to change so this specific species hasn't been discovered in our timeline yet - but two years ago in the original timeline, it was actually discovered back in the 70s. Them's the risks of time travel, folks.

To be fair, would one rather get a box of Bones with stinkbugs? Or without stinkbugs? Or even stinky bugs?

 

 

Hopefully they wont be getting  boxes full of dead fumigated stink bugs... 

 

Just try sending one of those back to Reaper for replacement because it’s missing a leg or two...

they are =P but the new miniature is already made, so it can't be based on something recently discovered. If it looks like something discovered in the future, then it's a happy coincidence, but it couldn't possibly be what inspired the mini itself, which is what we're discussing

Did Buglips fart in the Aussie box? 

Seems to me that such an action would tend to discourage any colonization on the part of the stinkbugs.

The effect on Bones in confined contact for extended periods of time has yet to be observed and reported.

Oh, Buglips, Nebulous Missy has a question for you!

Considering AU's fauna I am more worried about what might get in the box there. 

Unless the shipping container has suffered physical damage it should be vermin proof.

Since there are reports of stink bugs I'm going to make a guess that the container has suffered some sort of puncture damage.

The normal specification for seaworthy containers is at a minimum, wind and water tight.

Might have been bugs on the ship and the customs folks decided that fumigating the exterior was a useful precaution, too. Australia has had serious problems with invasive species and they take prevention pretty seriously.

 

The marmorated stink bug is native to China, Korea, and Japan and has become a problem in the US over about the last 20 years. It is thought that the bug got here by hitching rides on cargo. There are apparently populations in Texas, so it's also possible that the bugs originated there if they're inside the container.

In the limited discussion they had on Reaper Live no one said the infestation was inside of Reapers container.

It was mentioned that the ship made stops at several point of calls before reaching Australia which is why it took so long to get there.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.
      In October of 2018, Dog Might released the first fully sculpted GM Screen, the Valhalla Screen. Since then, we have released over 30 more designs, including officially licensed screens for: Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and Vampire: The Masquerade. We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood. Over the last year and a half, our Valhalla Screens have proven to be our most sought after product. "
       
      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
