WOOLLY MAMMOTH


So continuing on with the Prehistoric theme, we have the Woolly Mammoth, again in 15mm, and again from Primaeval Designs, this miniature is beautifully sculpted with lots of detail, getting the colour right was my biggest challenge, just that right reddy brown colour, in the end I settled for Vallejo's Mahogany Brown, the miniature comes with the body and tusks separate,  the tusks connect to the body via a couple of pins and your choice of glue, all in all a fun unit to put together and paint.

Anyone for steak ?? Yumbo !

I have ordered an extra 4 Woolly Mammoths so as to create a small herd which will be the objective in most of my games, I'm hoping Primaeval designs sculpts some Woolly calves to go with this herd, that would be way cool, I believe they have done this for there 28mm range, so fingers crossed.



On the prehistoric workbench I am in the process of painting up the first of my Neanderthal hunters, primaeval Designs has only made one set of five guys so far, more, we need more !!! damn it! will post these guys up when finished.

Great figure, nice paintjob. who doesn't love the whole Caveman thing! Need some cavewomen to go with them!

Oh yes, cavewomen indeed! There are some nice cavewomen in 28mm scale but I have no idea what's available in 15mm scale.

I did suggest this to Primaeval Designs, so I could use them as objectives, kind of like raid the oppositions camp and steal their women folk, but I have had no reply thus far....
