I've been looking for cavemen / prehistoric minis without too much success. The ones I found (including Arion Games, Junior General, Caveman Clash) are all not quite what I am looking for. Any suggestions appreciated.
I have this set. They're pretty swell, and like most of David's sets, they have layers that change up the color schemes, so you can make tribes or teams. In addition to the cultists and terrain (trees, bushes, rocks) David mentioned, you also get a really big cobra--which is one of the ones I recolored in my Mobs of Mods thread. They're the last pic in the "Okum Animals" post in that thread.
So yeah, get these if you need cave men.
There are 2.5 dinosaurs by Vermin King and an elephant bird by myself in the January 2017 Forum Hoard, if you are looking for prehistoric monsters. I'm not sure if the final hoard included all the dinos, so you might need to go to the submission thread for that hoard to get the full set. The forum hoards have the advantage of being free, too!
Also, there's a swell new set of dinosaurs just released by from Trash Mob Minis, by our own chiefasaur: Prehistoric Panic! This set includes 5 live dinos, 6 dino zombies, and 5 dino skeletons.
I went plastic minis for my Cavemaster campaign. I started with mirrored standees, but I wanted the minis to be more 3d for the setting. I'm glad I did. I found lots of stuff in old Heroclix and Mageknight bins. I also used GW chaos barbarian types.

cowboyleland: I always thought Tirick was a little mad.

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.

squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!

shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
