Welcome to the Zoo

Welcome to my 15mm Prehistoric gaming resource blog.  Here I intend to review miniatures, terrain, and rules. I will also post game reports and photos of painted miniatures. Along with 15mm miniatures manufactured for prehistoric gaming I will also include models that are useful for lost world gaming even though that is not the use for which they were intended.

What is ‘Lost World Gaming’? These are miniature tabletop adventure games using figurines and terrain. In my case I prefer 15mm for the convenient size and generally low-cost. The ‘Lost World’ genre includes ‘prehistorically accurate’ encounters between extinct lifeforms-think dinosaurs vs dinosaurs in the Triassic/Jurassic/Cretaceous, but also Paleolithic struggles for survival between rival bands of  hominids, and last but not least, Victorian and Pulp-era adventures in the spirit of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s’ “Lost World’ or Edgar Rice Burroughs’  “The Land That Time Forgot”  and “At the Earth’s Core” novels.
