Aufklaerungsaurus los!



For the 'Mount and Rider' bonus round of Curt's Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge I submitted this figure from Eureka of a recce dino rider, somewhere in Russia in 1943. And blow me down if it isn't currently tying in second place in the voting, with less than 24 hours to go! I put this success down entirely to my decision to add a number plate to the dinosaur.



I'm chuffed that people like the figure, particularly in the company of some truly stunning entries. Check them out here!

  1. Sehr ausgezeichnet!

    Though I think you'll find that the waffenfarbe of the Kriegclaw Korps was more of a rouge...

    1. Nah- I reckon they were used more by recce units, so cavalry yellow :)

  4. I just noticed the details on the saddle blanket - yet another reason to like this figure, besides its gonzo over the top weirdness. This was an inspired entry.
