I've seen this model before, but I can't remember where it's from? Lovely for Lost world campaigns!

It's one of mine - Forge of Ice.  In-universe he's a Histath, a snakeman.

Pellucidar is perhaps not the biggest influence on my own stuff, but it's high on the list.





For example - Burroughs describes the Mahars as looking like giant Rhamphorynchids.  Toothy maws, long tails, no crest.

But, when I read the Pellucidar books as a kid, I always imagined them as looking more like Pterodactyls.  Maybe that's inspired by Sauron from Marvel Comics, or even Rodan from the Godzilla films.  But, no matter where it's from, that's how I imagined them.

So, when I designed my own race of Pterro-Men for my setting, that's how I made them look.  Definitely inspired by the pterosaur dudes of my childhood, Mahars included, but based on the mental image I had in my 10-year-old imagination.

I think they make decent stand-ins for Mahars, even if they don't quite match up to Burroughs' description.

Thanks, I recall now. Great sculpting!

I wasn't aware of those. I particularly like the shaman hut. Scotia Grendel do some very nice 28mm huts. I think that some could be used as a larger hut/great hall in 15mm too.

Magister Militum have a very broad range of prehistoric animals, one of the biggest I've seen, covering both famous and obscure species. The problem is that they're in 10mm (which might be the most obscure wargame scale of them all, since it's the awkward middle child between the popular 6mm and 15mm scales), which means they'll be dwarfed by your 15mm minis. I guess you could pass them off as dwarf variants or young dinosaurs, though.
Also MMs web store is kind of a nightmare to navigate, but I digress.

Gale Force Nine have two sets of 28mm skin and tusk huts that work as stone age homes. Way too big for 15mm, though.

I'm thinking of building a model of one of the buildings described by ERB as looking like a giant hornet's nest around a tree. Which is basically what I already do with my IKEA ball huts, except in a tree. And those are really easy to build from scratch.
If you're convincing yourself that you're infallible, you can never improve.

Pulp Figures Neanderthals are out of production at the moment, but I could see that lot appearing in a Pelucidar game. I think Bob Murch will be sculpting new versions. The old versions can be viewed here:

Thanks CC!

Good to see you here!  Your excellent tents are what got me started after all!

Check out my "Denizens of Azor" thread here in the Pulp forum, I think there's some stuff there that you'll like!

I'm a big fan of the Mars and Venus books but Pelllucidar never really moved me, thank god Doug McClure never played John Carter.

Did this for the  ERBAAA(Edgar Rice Burroughs Amateur Artists Alliance), I think it would have been  amazing!
