Jessica, the same coworker who delivered the poster I posted about last week, tipped me off to this nifty little bugger. I think it's a miniature of a dinosaur pimp*. It's apparently connected to an RPG which takes place in the fantastical realm of Glorantha, which has been used for a variety of games. Its name is Hugg'e Brrr, and he's a "Trachodon mage from Dragon Pass." He's a modified version of the Nanotyrannus miniature (Item #K-11) made by Copperstone Castings, a company who wisely manufactures such things. They have a few other dinosaur miniatures at the above link. I especially like the Oviraptor greedily clutching a huge egg to his chest.
I cannot stress how heartily I endorse this.
A few other bits and bobs:
- Matt Martyniuk's adorable furry Leaellynasaura demands your attention.
- At Chinleana, Bill Parker has shared some photos of his Independence Day weekend amidst the gorgeousness of the Chinle Formation
- The most recent episode of BBC's Material World takes a field trip to the Royal Society's 35oth anniversary "See Further" exhibition. Thumbs up for mentioning the model pterosaurs, thumbs down for totally neglecting to interview any of the Portsmouth University crew responsible. Come on, Quentin.
