Beware of Rock Devils

In my quest for Pulp/VSF gaming materials I have found a few interesting pieces in non-gaming places. Here are my “Rock Devils”-inhabitants of the arid mountains of Lemuria. I found these pewter horned lizard figurines here: http://hornedlizardcreations.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_20&products_id=3&zenid=6c8f610102f68a4f36890dbf97c41e67

The figures are a little pricey, but the details are quite nice. The company makes replicas in various sizes and I ended up purchasing a few ranging in size from .5″-1.5″. The smallest lizards were made as stick pins and I just clipped off the pin with wire snippers, leaving a little hollow lizard that I could glue to a base. The other lizards were made as collectibles and are detailed bottom and top to represent different species of  horned lizards. For bases I used various washers and all were painted in a sandy shade with brown mottleing and the horns were done in ivory. The real horned-lizard only eats ants, but my Pulp/VSF version will eat anything it can get in its mouth.   The rough terrain rocks in the pictures are resin pieces from The Scene.

  1. Love the way you have painted them and the basing is great.

    Having looked at the site I see what you mean about the cost – not good for the wallet but they are so so good I know why you just had to get them. I’ve put them on the ‘to buy when I win the lottery’ list 🙂

    • They are expensive pieces, but on the other hand I think I donated to the preservation of the horned-lizard. I’ve lived in the USA my whole life and traveled to California, Wyoming, Utah….but I’ve never seen one of these lizards exept on TV! Not even in a zoo.
