Thanks for the picture @kristof65. I’d seen that thread before, and have purchased 5 gem dragons because of it. :poke:

 

Perhaps I’m misremembering from your thread, but I recall you pointing out the grey Tamiya Clear was the one color that didn’t do a great job of fully obscuring the base purple color of the shadow demon. 
 

Regardless, I’m happy to see that @Reaper Ron clarified the mistake, and am happy that I will be getting smokey grey shadow dragons. ::D:  Time to order another... Thanks, Ron!  I know you guys are busy. Keep on keepin’ on.

I keep looking at the crocodile hybrid fish thing in the Dark Depths Expansion, and I keep wondering if its based on any prehistoric creature. From what I could find the snout, scales and tail fins are the completely wrong shape for the Crocodylomorphas that swam in the seas.

Any one know the inspiration, or will I need to do some converting.

i don't know what the artist was inspired by, but i can give you some ideas of what it could pass for. naturally it's not a REAL creature, because it's just a fantasy monster, but with a bit of tweaking you could make it into a:

 

- Tylosaurus or other Mosasaur  (fairly decent representation other than the scales and spikes)

- Placodus (shortening the jaws)

- Ichtyosaurus (thinning the width of the jaws)

- Litorosuchus (thinning legs down and removing tail fin)

- Deinosuchus or Purussasaurus (flippers and tail are wrong)

 

attached a pic of Tylosaurus and the dark depths figure in question

Thanks for the help, I know most of them thought a Litorosuchus does look interesting. The problem with that sculpt is that you must either re-sculpt the legs and tail to fit a land/river Crocodylomorpha OR re-sculpt the skin, head, fins and tail to feet a sea dwelling one.

Nah, it is easier to start from scratch for a Ichtyosaurus.

The funny thing is; that if the artist sculpted a prehistoric animal instead, most people wouldn't notice a difference and those that did would've a nice easter egg.

In the museum in my home town there used to be a cryptotaxidermied critter that was the head and body of an alligator with fins replacing the legs and tail that looked very much like this beastie.

      Another “large collection of miniatures” kickstarters, reminiscent of the recent Blacklist Games Fantasy kickstarters.

      I am tempted, even though it covers a lot of things we already have.

      Pixies, Wyrms, Demonicity – Three Mini Role-Playing Games
       
      Three ready-for-adventure mini-game boxed sets for your RPG game night, featuring the Tri-Stat System used in BESM Fourth Edition RPG.
       

       
      If you're looking for role-playing games that are concise enough to crack open and start playing right away, yet sufficiently robust and evocative to support longer campaign play as well, you've come to the right place.
       
       
      Welcome to the Kickstarter for the first three Tri-Stat System Mini-Game Boxed Sets – a new line of compact and complete role-playing adventure games that are compatible with Dyskami Publishing's flagship BESM Fourth Edition anime and manga RPG. Tri-Stat System creator Mark MacKinnon has distilled and customised the complete system into distinct streamlined versions for each of the three adventure games – targeting their specific genres and background settings in easy-to-understand boxed sets.
       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – it's time for your next great role-playing adventure!
       

       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – These boxed set RPGs are games of adventure, exploration, battle, heroism, romance, and imagination. Yet unlike in a traditional board game, the possibilities for exploration and action in these role-playing game are endless.
       
      Each of the three role-playing adventure games contains the following components:
       
      a 32-page full-colour rulebook that gives your group everything you need to play, with sections on character abilities, magical spells/paranormal powers, weapons and equipment, enemy encounters, items and equipment, and guidelines for integrating the Tri-Stat System game with the compatible BESM Fourth Edition RPG
      6 brief story scenarios so you can start playing adventures right away
      6 pre-generated player character sheet handouts, with game stats and illustration
      4 custom-etched dice specific to that boxed set
       
      You can pledge for one, two, or all three of these boxed sets during the Kickstarter.
       
      ...
       
      I know know nothing about these creators or the system, but I decided to back for Pixies entirely because of that picture of the corgi. 👀
