Magister Militum 10mm Iguanodon and Hadrosaurus

Another group of 10mm dinosaurs that spent several months waiting for a coat of paint. A pair of Hadrosaurs and a lone Iguandon. Both are Cretaceous herbivores that were discovered very early in the 19th Century wave of fossil discoveries. Hadrosaurus, “Trachodon” in the old Marx sets, is sometimes considered a dubious species since its missing much of its skeleton, including the skull. M.M. sculpted their Hadrosaurus with a traditional crest-less head. Based on the 35 fossilized bones, size is estimated at 7 meters/23′ and Magister Militum’s model is about 6 cm long making it 20 feet long when used with 15mm.

Iguanodon needs no introduction, being famous and one of the first-named dinos. The Magister Militum figure is also 6cm long so is a ‘mid-sized’ Iguanodon when added to the menagerie. There were several variants of Iguanodontids ranging in size from 5 meters/ 16 feet to 10 meters/ 35 feet long. These beasts were all rather similar in appearance.
