Nexus miniatures S.D.Z.A Herbivore Mutt

Work continues apace on my Relics force the last two units are painted they just need varnishing and then the tufts etc added to the bases. In between puppet unit drying this week I got a Dinosaur Herbivore Mutt finished for S.D.Z.A as I'm helping with some play testing and I need him for the demo scenario. Decided to just go with a simple green skin tone and kept the ragged cloth a neutral brown colour. Really wasn't sure what colour to do the eyes so went for an orange/red look. I'm quite pleased with how he's turned out I've not really done anything like him before. I have the Carnivore mutt in the queue todo as well thinking of an orange/blue combo for him.






All being well I'll have pics up next week of the last two units for my Relics force. The Tournament is a week today so I need to run a few games and get familiar with the basics ready. I may switch a unit out but only if I get the Highlanders ready in time.

  1. Excellent work on the dino-man. Great stuff mate. :)

    With Relics and SDZA you have been incredibly prolific again - just need you start on a crew of Antarctic bird inspired criminals! :)

  4. Oh that is very well done indeed Simon. Love the green skin and contrasting brown. I have this mini myself and you've certainly given me something to think about colour scheme wise now. I'll also wait a bit longer now until I paint it, so people will forget about how well you've painted this one and then hopefully admire my paltry effort ;-)

  5. Lovely paintjob Simon, nice contrasts.
    The mini looks like a turtle that's lost it's shell though.

    1. Thanks very much Dean. A nice and simple scheme I thought as well. The carnivore will be much brighter if it goes to plan!

  8. The eyes came out very nice. The drab clothing is just right for him.

  10. I can't help thinking that this is a turtle who has lost his shell. He (she?) does have a slightly forlorn look.

    1. Yes he could well be its human who been mutated by the R.D.S virus as Turtles are prehistoric its all pretty valid.

  11. I hate to say it mate but he looks cute. Is he going to make a crossover into your post-apocalyptic world? That would be cute.

    1. lol thats fine. Its for a slightly different Post Apocalyptic setting but will have use as a mutant or similar in many PA settings I think.

  12. Yup, I'm in the "looks cute" club too. Is a cool looking sculpt and would make for an interesting looking cleric, or priest in an rpg game too.

  13. He looks cool, that is a strange mini

  14. Good work on the mini, especially the eyes. Is that a four leaf clover in the background? Nah it couldn't be.
