John and I went out to do our Dollar Store Dungeon run recently and came back with some great finds. Here’s my first item:
It may not be the largest assortment of dinosaurs (there were bags that had more dinosaurs in them), but what I got is pretty cool! A triceratops, a stegosaurus, and a pretty nice palm tree. For $1? I’ll take it!
The palm tree came with an extra frond, which I stuck to the top of the main trunk. Not totally realistic, but it seemed like the best place for it. I almost stabbed myself in the thumb pushing the frond onto the trunk — watch out! Palm trees can be sharp.
It looks like the dinosaurs are about to scale with 25mm figures and Lego minis, too! (As a silly aside, did you know that the spikes on the end of a stegosaur’s tail are actually called the thagomizer now?)
This find now has me raring to include these props in a game of Og. I may have to work them into my Con of the North game. And figure out how to make miniatures useful in Og. (And yes, Og is the kind of game where dinosaurs and early hominids can appear in the same game.)
