Identify The Critter


Recommended Posts

I need some help identifying this skull.

Bitey.jpg.f4a217c478fd38884c59607e59208552.jpg Seriously, what kind of critter WAS this thing?

The skull is not real; it seems to be a resin cast, and as far as I can tell, it is not representative of anything that ever actually walked the earth. Judging from the smaller teeth, I'm guessing the master was sculpted from scratch by someone with only a tenuous grasp on what animal skulls, much less their teeth, are supposed to look like. The final puzzle piece: I got it at Hobby Lobby in the Mens Decor section; ten bucks.

I reiterate the question: If a visitor to my home steps into the trophy room with me for brandy and cigars... and sees THAT thing... and asks what it IS... 

...what should I reply? Answers need not be serious, but bonus points for cleverness.

It's a Late Mesozoic Era Fang Toothed Walamungas.

The large fangs are actually digging tools to allow it to get to the Giant Grubs and Beetles that comprise the bulk of its diet.

It's range was what is now Upper Outer Mongolia and into Siberia.  Due to the relative unexplored nature of the modern area that was its normal range specimen are rare with no complete skeletons having been unearthed.

      Finished this a few days ago. One thing I have to say. I've looked at a lot of people's online before doing mine. And not to be rude but I don't like any of theirs. Nobody seemed to try and do a theme to the rocks that location wise made more sense for the fossilized dinosaur on its back. Lots of people made gems and all kinds of other things. You wouldn't find those things around fossil remains. So this was my attempt to have something more surreal and actually include the fossils better and since I collect museum quality fossils apart from painting minis. I've seen enough to try my hand at what it would look like more on an excavation site. :)

      The intact head of a gigantic wolf has been discovered in Siberian permafrost. The head is 40cm long, as large as a modern donkey’s head (fully half the body length of a modern wolf!)

      Since I am making a Reaper Order, and I don't have some of the colors of the Rainbow Dragon Challenge. I decided I'd get myself set up before making my order. Even though I don't even have time to think before Reaper Con, let alone contemplate another project.
      However, fools rush in.... Are there any Angels around these parts?

      Here is proof I have Stormwing mint, still in the bag. No rolls have yet been made. (Yes, I'm aware my name is in the photo... but I'm trying to learn to deal with my name being connected with Minis. Seems like @Corporea isn't wigged out about it... so why should I be?

      And the post roll photographic evidence.
      I am going for a Level 3 challenge, so that will be a Marine Teal, Violet Red dragon with Clotted Red accents with only Pure White and Pure Black for highlighting and shading. 
      Welp, let's see what I can do with this.
      And now to go see if I have those exact colors. 
      Looking forward to seeing everyone else's dragons, and their crazy combinations!

      After this in the other "Batman V Superman" thread:

      I figured we needed a spoilericious thread too.

      Not really a spoiler, but my young martial arts friend said (pretty much a direct quote): "Nothing against Gal Gadot, lovely woman.  But she clearly has no martial arts training.  She pulled back her fist for a punch and I was all like 'Nooooo!  You'll break your wrist!'"
      Same person thought very little of the movie's fight choreography, compared it to a little kid bashing two action figures together.

      This came out of the good will box.  I have no idea who made it. 
      does anyone know? 
      First I thought it was a dwarf and gnome, but I went with goblins instead. 
      I tried to get 2 different players to use this as their concept,  but neither was buying. the second is now playing a gnome cavalier on a small hippo - so its not like he rejected it for silliness. 
      As goblins I will find a way t o use them as enemies.
