Before and after of a dollar store dino converted to something between a T. rex and a snow leopard.

With a 25mm miniature, Julie Guthrie's 1987 "Swordswoman". Available from Mega Miniatures, in metal, for comparable cost to a Reaper "Bones" character.

The snow is lightweight spackle.

I wanted to do a nice multi-genre conversion. He'd probably fit in just fine prowling the fjords in a hard winter as a frost dragon, or chasing taun-tauns, or in need of much coverup devouring bison in Yellowstone.

I like it: Color, spots, and ridge. What material did you paint it in? Thanks.

Nice! There is evidence that dinosaurs in what is now South Africa during the early Jurassic had fur – considering that part of the world was nearly in the antarctic region as it is now, makes perfect sense.

Nice Job. Even after selling off alot of their fantasy stuff, Mega still has some great classic lines many of them sclpted by the greats of the industry.. If they weren't classically sized, I'd probably have more of them.

The fur is done with Magic Sculpt. The paint is FolkArt craft paint thinned with Future. Slate blue over dove grey for the main coat, medium grey and charcoal grey for the spots. Brush on Ceramcoat flat sealer, with brush on gloss for the claws, teeth , and eyes.

ordinarybass – Nothing illustrates scale creep like the fact that my dwarf from the same artist and era is smaller than SWMBO's Mouslings.

Scale creep can be insane. Lucky for me I've only recently been collecting fantasy minis (formerly a 16 year Sci-Fi-only collector) so I can just buy in at the current standard.

Tell me more about Folk Art thinned with Future.

Do you do this for a wash, or just to make it flow better. I mostly buy Delta craft paint, but some colors from Folk Art I like better.

However, some of the folk art craft paints are really thick. I just bought some matte medium that I hope to use to make them flow better, but I have future on hand also.
