He won't need his spear for long I don't think.
Thanks for the photo, I think they will suit nicely.

Re: My 15mm Prehistoric Project - HotT Army Added
« Reply #16 on: August 24, 2017, 02:36:09 AM »
I recently finished a 15mm caveman army for HotT and thought I' share some photos. All of the miniatures, except one, are from Khurasan Miniatures range.

The complete army.

Warband.

Lurkers and Beast.

Heroes - The Hero with the Smilodon companion, based ont he Farycry Primal cover art, is on a sabot base.

Shaman or Magician.

Another view of the Shaman/Magician.

'CAPTAIN CAVEMAAAN!!!'

I plan to add a few elements periodically along with the opposing force of associated critters, including some 'Apemen' based on those in the early 1980's movie 'Quest for Fire'. I am undecided about the stronghold. I have a few ideas in mind - the cave featured in the beginning of the aforementioned movie, the island in the swamp where the refugees gather after the attack on the cave or make a selection of hide huts.

Lovely - and the bases are suitably lush.

Thanks von Lucky!

I based the vegetation loosely on the console/computer game Farcry Primal.

Love the use of tusks in the corner of the base - nice touch.

I thought I'd share some photos of the enemy to the Cavemen and Women...

The Beasties!

The critters so far -


The Mammoths - Behemoths

These are Mojo - Animal Planet toys that I picked up rather cheap.

Sarbretooth Tigers - Beast

These miniatures by Khurasan Miniature

Wooly Rhino - Knights

Again these are by Khurasan Miniatures

Terror Birds - Beast

Khurasan Miniatures... again...

Wolves - Beast
Splintered Light Miniatures this time!

Cave Bear - Lurker

From Copplestone Castings.

Cave Bear MKII - Lurker

This fine fellow is from Mick Yarrow Miniature (MY Miniatures).  

Apemen...  :? - Warband

These miniatures are from Khurasan Miniatures. I decided to add some elements after watching 'Quest For Fire'.

I seldom play games these days and have very little experience with HotT. Like my Arthurian HotT armies, I just enjoyed painting the army up. I am not too fussed by the make up of the army or the element type or how the army plays and may well change some of the element types over time or suggestions are made.

Finally, even though it's not related to HotT, I thought I'd share it here - a dice holder.
This is designed to hold the D8 used for determining the direction the fire moves when playing Tusk.

All of it looks outstanding! Is the Captain Caveman something you sculpted?

Thanks for sharing!

What a wonderful collection, with both figures and basing looking superb.
Very lush.
 :-* :-*

Looks like you had a lot of fun putting this lot together.

There are still a few left but not too many.
Give me a shout if you want one.

Terrific stuff, always really pleases me to see someone actually painting and using our miniatures.  :)

Next up for this range is THE APES (all caps because it's supposed to be screamed when uttered).  THE APES are sasquatch or Gigantopithecus like chaps who are the much bigger, less evolved, and all around scarier cousins of the "wildmen of the savannah" whom we've had out for several years.  Seven poses plus an alpha male to lead them who's even bigger than the rest.  

The complex battle tactic of THE APES is to barrel straight down on the opponent at breakneck speed and tear them limb from limb.
