All "fun" post apocalyptic settings should include dinosaurs (and zombies) in my opinion.  Things like The Road, not so much.

I havent got around to repainting my dino toys yet (and I may never with so much other stuff to pant).

Yours look good though.  The flame effect photographed well too.

Currently working on: Terminator Genisys, Necrons, post-apoc terrain.

I know that the emphasis here is on your really nicely painted dinos, but it was the road signs used as shields that really made me giggle.  Lovely.

Agreed.  Rolling to see if your character dies from starvation or dysentary just doesn't appeal....


Great Dinos!

I looooooooove The Road... but it doesn't make for a great game, I think, as you aptly pointed out .  lol

I'm more for Techno-Barbarian.. If I ever get around to it, I would like a huge Braveheart inspired battle with two rival gangs. Motorcycles for bikes. Almost no guns. Crossbows and bows. Two long battle lines ready to go at each other.  :-D

Might even use the Kings of War rules for it. I'd love doing the elements.

Did they ever release Apocalypse D...the Dino inspired game from the Battlefield Evo rules?

I remember seeing the Ad in the back of Apoc-Z

Too funny!  I really like the eyes on the dinosaurs.  It makes them look a bit crazy.

Good stuff, crude toys made to look a bit more realistic with a neutral paint job, nicely done!
Let me hear the battle cry

Dinosaurs are making a take over bid, I love it!! As mentioned, your flames look very nice, too.

MOD EDIT

I have deleted today's advertising splash as it had also been posted in the Modern Board.

Advertising is welcome in one or other but not in both boards as the LAF rules prohibit cross posting.

Uhhh... I don't think I follow.

My other dinosaur apocalypse topic is on the Future Wars board.

I'm not selling the PDF yet and I don't know when it'll be available.

Maybe I'm even crazier than you but this

A "splash release" of resin Masters for the first few Characters is now on the horizon.

Interested? Check out the Facebook Group for regular Updates - https://www.facebook.com/groups/1525611001004826/

(or something similar) was posted in two boards and same advert can't be in two places (which it now is again)
