44086 a third cave person

Great work!

The all look great, but from their expression it's clear that living in the Stone Age was not pleasant at all.

He’s just got that worried look on his face because he doesn’t want to get his brand new white pelts dirty..

not like in time of elders.
skins warm.
kill terror beast, not get eaten.
kill fat beast and cook flesh, make beads of bone.
write symbol, very advanced.
high standard of living, not like in time of elders.

time of elders very bad."

Thanks Rigel! I actually have most of next week off so hope to get some painting done and cave person number four is on my docket. I’ve got his skin and hair done, just just need to do his pelts, shoes and weapon!

Your work on these makes me want to pick these up!

The very fact that there are cool miniatures, greatly sculpted, should make you want to get them, but I’m glad my paint jobs helped out in your decision!

I did not see the need to own these until you pointed it out with your paintbrush...unfortunately for my wallet. So I ordered these and some other Reaper goodies and when it got here, I gave it to my wife unopened and said wrap it up and put it under the tree! Now there will be one present under the Christmas tree that will be exactly what I wanted :)

Yeah, I put an order in a few days ago because I wanted to take advantage of Reaper’s Christmas specials and I needed paint and a few minis too! I haven’t told the missus  yet but she’ll probably figure it out soon enough.

Nice use of white.

 

 

Thanks Joe! Not sure how long his furs will stay white in the wild, but he just pulled them off a polar bear this morning.

      Started a new mini tonight.

      What is a faux-prehistoric setting without Cavemen? The stereotypical fur-clad, monosyllabic unwashed barbarian that whacks a woman over the head with a club and then drags her by the hair into a cave?
      Or at least, sporting the "cave man" look that was popularised in The Flintstones and The Far Side.
      The reason these types are prehistoric lies in the name. Pre-history, as in "before recorded time". Which really is most of time.
      We don't really know all that much about prehistoric man other than what can be gleaned through archeology. We do know that there existed several different sub-species of humans concurrently up to about 50.000 years ago. Neanderthals would be one such sub-species, the Hobbits (Homo Florensis) another.
      Then we (or something) killed off all the others. Some evidence of interspecies breeding is still to be found in our modern DNA.
       
       
      #628-631 These were only shown as silhouettes in the KS.

      From left to right: Shaman. clubber, spearman, archer.
      These are technologically advanced cavemen, as shown by their use of the bow.
       

      The Shaman. I call him Barney. He succeeded in the Quest for Fire.
       

      The clubber, Thag Simmons. He will be known to posterity by the manner of his demise. (Should have stayed clear of the tail end of that Stegosaur.)
       
       

      Fred, the spearman. Used stones of flint to make a sharp spearhead.
       

      Archie the bowman. His right hand strategically placed to hide his embarrassing lack of arrows from the others.
       
      These were simple and fun to do in regular paints on a black undercoat.
       

      I come in search of the answer to the Riddle of Steel! What do you know about it?
       
      These minis were finished June 14th 2020.

      Hooray! It's an entire tribe of orc warrior women ready to crack some heads!
       
      I rebase all of my Reaper models, but these had such thin integrated bases that I was able to glue them directly onto Reaper's 32mm round gaming bases and still keep some of the original details. You can see this most clearly with the top of the skull on the base of the Jade Fire Champion (the warrior with the two-handed axe) and the bleached ribcage at the feet of the Jade Fire Shaman.

      Here's a bunch of giant animals from the Bones 4 Lost Valley expansion: the axebeak (44075), giant snake (44078), giant cave sloth (44079) and cave bear (44082). My typical color palette preferences tend to be fairly muted but I experimented with primary colors on the axebeak.
