I just pledged to the Acheson Creations Primaeval Designs kickstarter. The company has done a good job over the years supplying a decent number of dinosaurs and prehistoric animals, especially since so few miniatures companies deal in those ranges. But of course there are still plenty of dinosaurs that haven't been turned into miniatures. So my question: What dinosaurs do you most want to see in miniature form?

Here are five from me:

1) Therizinosaurs. Pot-bellied omnivores with three-foot-long claws on their hands. Awesome.


2) Amargasaurus. It was a bit small for a sauropod dinosaur, but it had those awesome spines along its back.


3) Xenoceratops. I'm biased because it is named after Xenozoic Tales, my favorite comic book. But it also has a cool crest and horns.


4) Kentrosaurus. A smaller version of a stegosaurus with a lot more spikes.


5) Hatzegopteryx. A flying reptile that lived with the dinosaurs. It was the size of a giraffe and probably an active ground predator (like storks, except this creature can swallow a small horse whole). I would want the miniature to be in ground predator mode rather than flying.

Got to admit I'm impressed by the claws on the Therizinosaur.

So that's where Wolverine's genes come from!

Does he have a pot belly too?

Kentrosaurus and Hatzegopterix are both available in 10mm from Magister Millitum, the latter both walking and flying.

Never mind dines, I want more mammals – companies seem to think woolly mammoths & rhinos, sabre-tooth cats and the odd ground sloth and Irish elk are the only things to appear in the following 65 million years post dino extinction.
What about Sivatherium, chalicotheres, titanotheres/brontotheres, Diprotodon, toxodons, Ambelodon (and other early elephants), Arsinotherium, Uintatherium or Amphicyon to name a few examples.
