That's a sweet croc.
Apologies if this is the wrong place to ask this but is there anywhere where an imaginative wannabe writer can go to see what background material is already there for Saurians? I’d love to contribute something but my desperation to make whatever I come up with fit in holds me back at the moment...
Contact @Scottish Knight if you want to contribute to the Background Team.
Concept art for fantasy Indonesian Saurian armed with copper klewang, based upon Nias warrior garb. The Nias tribe were famous headhunters and warriors who carved wooden figures and small stone monuments for their houses. Saurian inspired by the sterling sculpting work of Rikard.
The Saurian Ancients are Reptile peoples of the equatorial tropics who once ruled the entire world during the long First Age, yet their dominion was rent asunder by a giant comet followed by massive slave rebellions. The ascendant thralls of many different species went their own ways and founded civilizations and nomad hordes whose turbulent development have dominated all subsequent eight Ages. The Saurian Ancients are still great regional powers to be feared, however, for theirs is the pulsating might and olden glory of rich resources, and their claws and fangs are sharp even against foes bedecked in steel. As Vetian countries start to explore and colonize distant parts of the world during the Ninth Age, they come into frontal collision with the Saurian Ancients of Virentia, Taphria and southeastern Augea.
And this struggle between man and lizard is by no means a foregone conclusion...

@MountainBuns: Thank you very much! I've got limited experience with sculpting larger creatures (and am bound by a queue of promised plans for a good while ahead), but it sure is a tempting idea!
Perhaps some luck could be had with @LKMiniatures, Rikard or some other Saurian producers if you ask very, very kindly and cross your fingers? Might be worth a shot.
Artwork by DracarysDrekkar7, being a Saurian Ancient fantasy concept for the Ninth Age. This artist has a deft hand at illustrating fantasy, capturing both an impression of rugged life and craft refinement in fine detail! A note on the mane hairdo: Remember feathered dinosaurs. Also on a similar note: If the gear does not look fit for tropical climate, then could there be isolated pockets of Saurian Ancients remaining in colder climes? See polar Dinosaurs.
Do check out the artist's Deviantart gallery and leave him a comment!
