Wow!  I have a little raptor in the queue.  This is inspiring work.

I’ve got the Bones raptors and I’ve got some of the old Partha ones where I’d have to glue their useless little arms on first.  I think I’m going older however, back to the days of the Children of the Night, where Dennis Mize created a bunch of thick, squat little beasts that are going to be great fun to paint.

Looks great, I like the colours!

 

If you want inspiration for colours, just look at modern birds and reptiles, I use those for reference for the Dinos and Reptilians in my Lost World project.

Also google Painted Dinosaur miniatures or Dinosaur artwork.

 

As for the Cavemen, Bones IV has a nice set and Copplestone Miniatures also have some great ones.

Reaper has some Neanderthal minis in metal and if you visit the Bay of Evil, Metal Magic has two hominids called cavemen.

Thanks Glitterwolf!

 

Yup, that's what I've been doing, looking at photos of lizards and other dinosaur art to figure out hot to tackle colors and patterns.

 

I've seen the Reaper ones, which are of course beautiful (there's the one that is dragging his mate, politically incorrect fun), and I have the Bones IV Lost Valley box, so I have those cavemen and the prairie people, but I would have just loved to have seen Dennis Mize's take on cavepeople back then and with the 25 millimeter scale.

Great dino! Really like the colors and the muscle definition on the legs.

Thanks Iridil, those legs keep making me think about chicken for some reason!

Thank you TheOldGuard, trying to avoid just drab grey!

      And another finished miniature from last night, a dimetrodon grandis, sculpted by Dennis Mize back in the 70's in his miniature range "Children of the Night".  
       
      And in my quest to try not to do green and greys, I went a little loopy on the color scheme, so hope it's not too goofy, white, orange and blue.
       

       
      Probably the miniature with which I'm least satisfied in a long history or okay minis, but I guess a little odd experimentation never hurt.  Let me know what you think of the colors!

      Hello everybody! Hope a lot of you are having a great time at ReaperCon, one of these days hope to go!
       
      So here is one of the figures I finished last night, a Ral Partha female fighter, sculpted by Bob Charette.   With this figure, it took me forever to figure out what color I wanted her clothing to be, so after a long and painful struggle just gave up and made them white. Don't know if that's ever happened to anybody else?
       
      Anyhoos, enjoy!

      So in all honestly, no idea what a prestidigitator is, and every time I spell it, I'm afraid I'm going to get it wrong!
       
      So just finished this figure sculpted by the late, great Dennis Mize I'm guessing some time in the nineties. She's a very simple figure, just a mage, some gloves and a dagger, so it didn't take too long. The longest part was of course figuring out what color to make her, which took a few days. In the meantime I did her skin, face and hair.   I was kind of torn between green and red, and red eventually won.
       
      I really like how the photos came out.  I tried taking them this afternoon at lunch, like I usually do, but because of some glaring problems with the miniature, a hair on her for example, and a bit of lint or dust, as well as a few imperfections I spotted in the paint job, I figured I'd try again tomorrow. I got home though and it was still pretty light outside, so I actually took her in the back yard and photographed her. I think the colors came out very vibrant with this in mind.  So anyhoos, here she is, enjoy:

      Hello everybody,
      here's one I just completed, a Ral Partha female adventurer, I think sculpted by Julie Guthrie, because it's from the All Things Dark and Dangerous range.  Hoping the photos are in proper focus.

       
      I really enjoyed the fact she had a sling and that the sling ball was sculpted into it.  Not overly happy with my metals on this one, but she'll do for now!
