So as Dinovember comes to a close there is just enough time for one last prehistoric beastie to shuffle off the painting table. Not technically a dinosaur, the Glyptodon was a large, 'armoured' mammal, not dissimilar to an armadillo that lived during the Pleistocene period.
This lump of resiny goodness is a DeeZee Miniature purchased through the consistently reliable 'Arcane Scenery & Models', a company that never fails to deliver top quality service. It comes with a substantially moulded base with rocks and vegetation and in the end I opted to keep it as it was, with just the addition of a few tufts.
He is quite a chunk of resin as you can see from the above picture, especially in comparison to Lofty Earnshaw, a 'Copplestone Castings' Dinosaur hunter. Unsure how to paint him, I opted for a 'beaver' look for the head and then built the 'armour' up with a succession of dry brushed layers.
So as we usher in December it is time for me to head up to the loft to dig out the Christmas decorations, but before I do, I can enjoy one last look at the fun that was Dinovember. Not a bad little haul and although a piece of self indulgent nonsense it did prove a wonderful opportunity to clear away some bits and pieces, that had for far too long, been cluttering up the painting table.
