Dino Discovery

So I found these plastic Schleich mini dinosaurs at the local toy store the other day.  I think they have interesting 15 mm possibilities.  The raptor and the pterosaur are a tad off-scale but the others seem pretty bang-on.  And, at only $4 each, you could put a herd on the gaming table for the cost of a few pints...


"Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!"

They do have a bit of molded text on their bellies that someone like me would feel compelled to remove and putty over, but otherwise they're pretty awesome as-is.  And scale is at least credible; here they are posing with a (largish) 15 mm humanoid:

"Come at me, bro!"
Khurasan "Huntarr" figure for scale.

  1. Nice they look rather good! I have got some for my 28mm games there not bad figures and come with semi decent paintjobs.

  2. Sadly, I hear these are 4 Euros (2x my cost) in Europe/UK, literally a train ride from where they're made. Wtf, commerce?

    1. Nah these are straight off the shelf. Schleich animal models are really high quality in many regards.
