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.

10,000 BC ? TUSK

Hi again everyone, so I have begun my foray into the world of Prehistoric survival, as mentioned in a previous post: (click here to be whisked away to previous post) I will be using the Tusk rule set with my own personal tweaks added, my intentions for the rule set is to make it harder to kill the woolly Mammoths (this is the point of the game), I will do this by giving them hit points, I also intend on changing the animal reaction system, and expanding the predator encounter tables (more danger more fun!).

So, tonight I'm showcasing Smilidon populator aka the Saber tooth Tiger, he will be one of the many predators on the predators encounter table in the Tusk rule set, there will be a chance that you will attract Smilidon to your immediate area, due to the noise and commotion of your hunt, you will have to deal with him or become his next meal.

All miniatures purchased so far are from the Primaeval Designs range and can be purchased from Acheson Creations, these guys will easily become the go to guys for any miniatures Prehistoric, I recieved great service and good communications from this supplier, the sculpts are extremely well done with high levels of detail and a lot of attention has been given towards the accuracy of the sculpts, this within itself speaks a lot for the talent and skill of there sculptor, especially considering that this range is done in 15mm ! thus far this is a faultless range of miniatures.

close up shot... Meow!!

Editors notes:
1) I wont do bases until the terrain gets done so they can match.
2) Next post the Woolly Mammoth gets a showing.
