The Big Nasty Bird is SPLENDIDLY painted in a WONDERFUL choice of colors. You achieved a sense of flight in a fine fashion. VERY WELL DONE!

Thank you!

It's always hard to pull of a reasonable flying pose.

Beautiful job on this great mini! Love the colors on his crest and shading on the wings - brilliant idea to make the bumps a mossy green, makes him seem camouflaged/natural.

That's one colorful not-bird!  I like the effects in the wings.  Both colorful and camo.  Keep up the great work!

 

 

Thank you!

I like to look at real reptiles and birds for reference.

Wow, that terradon with the terrain makes such a great scene! Very convincing.

 

Thanks!

It was a bit of a pain to get him into position, but it worked.

      At the very end of the Lost Valley, the bossfight: Clubtail!
       

      A plant eating 4-ton tank armed with a deadly morning star tail, an armoured hide with spikes, -a fantasy version of an Ankylosaur. The clubtail is larger than the fossil record of Ankylosaur supports. Also the spikes are overstated in comparison. A lot.
      At any rate, the Ankylosaur was contemporary with the Tyrannosaurus Rex and the Triceratops. All are from what is now North America in the late Cretaceous period, roughly 68 million years ago. It needed that armour.  The question remains: What did it use the club-like tail for? To smesh predators? Rivals? Trees? An impressive display to attract mates? All of the above?
      And the clubtail has spikes. Did I mention the spikes?
       
       

      I detest painting spikes. It takes absolutely ages and I invariably lose patience and botch the job. These look OK for tabletop but do not stand up to close scrutiny at all. At least it is done. Together with the entire Lost Valley Expansion! Woot!
       

      The Clubtail is, in fact, the distant forebearer of the modern day Dragon Tortoise aka Koopa.
       
       
      I made it a 125mm x 100mm base.

      Where several of the other Lost Valley dino-beasts have extra fantasy elements to them, such as extra horns. spiney ridges, a third digit on the vestigial front limbs and such, this one is just about picture perfectly based on a real dinosaur: The Carnotaurus.

       
      The Carnotaurus lived at some point during the Late Cretaceous period, that lasted from about 100 million to 66 million years ago. There have been found several fossils with bones and skin impressions that show scales, ridges and bumps in the hide. No sign of feathers though.
      The fossils are all found in South America, which was part of the supercontinent southern Gondwanaland when these critters existed.
      This is the only raptor-like predatory dino we know of that had horns on the skull, looking like very sharp eyebrows more than anything else really.

      This model was originally released in metal some years ago, which might explain the difference in design philosophy ("real dinosaur" vs "fantasy dinosaur"). Now it also exists in Bones Black in the Lost Valley.
       
      This mini was finished August 18th 2020.

      Hi guys and guyettes!
       
      So continuing on with some Dennis Mize Children of the Night dinosaurs, here is the Monoclonius Agathaumas:
       

       
      He went on a long, oval base because he was just too big for whatever circular ones I had. Tried to once again stay away from a green or grey color scheme. Not a very dramatic pose, just a dinosaur kind of hanging out, but I think he's pretty swell as far as dinosaurs go.  Not a triceratops, doesn't have those wonderful long horns on his head, just little nubs.   If I get so inspired, I'll go look up his name to see what actually is known about this particular type of dinosaur and where he lived, et cetera.
       
      Back in the days of my youth, the seventies, we as kids really loved anything related to dinosaurs and cavemen.  But those were back in the days of pre-pre Jurassic Park, we had more Harryhausen as our main provider of cinematic dinosaurs, and whatever books we could get at book stores.  
       
      Speaking of seventies dinosaurs, has anybody visited the Flintstone Park in South Dakota and is it still there?
