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?
This is another bogle for Monster Blood Tattoo though it happens to look a lot like an especially large werewolf.
First the sculpt: Although fur is often difficult to clean the parting line on this one was largely invisible to begin with.
Second the paint: It lent itself to a simple drybrush, but I've gone for such dark colors it doesn't show up in the photo.
Third the question: I just glued it to a round base today and can't decide how I should finish the base. It's going to be used in tabletop skirmish games so it doesn't need anything fancy. I just can't decide between gluing on sand and little rocks, applying resin sand gel, or using Apoxie Sculpt to build up the circular base to the level of the stock base. Opinions? Pros & cons?
The second add on tie-in to the Lost Valley: the Thunderfoot Behemoth, for 8 dollars in the kickstarter campaign.
An almost-Triceratops, biggest difference is the crest of horns around the rim of it's skullplate that the fossil record does not quite support as far as I know.
I went with the same-ish colour for this and the thunderfoot defender sauroid, as they were painted at the same time, and why not?
I ditched the original base and made a 125x100mm for it instead.
Paint big minis with big brushes! I used a 12mm wide make up brush for most of this mini.
On a black undercoat I drybrushed the top half or so with Vallejo Green Brown 70.879 and from the bottom with Vallejo Nocturna Pale Flesh 74.015. I honestly don't remember the other colors...some reddish brown, an ochre yellow, a bone white and a few others. And when the paint was on, I used CItadel Athonian Camoshade to wash the whole thing, taking care to remove any pooling with a brush. After that was dry, I carefully drybrushed the main colours one more time to lighten them a bit. The horns were done in the pale flesh with the camoshade, and then drybrushed with two different off whites. Details like the eyes, based and done.
Also consider for a bit what kind of environment that promotes the evolution of this kind of size, armour and weaponry in prey animals. This is a twelve ton herbivore. with armour-piercing horns!
in comparison, a heavy modern day Rhino clocks in at 2.2 tons. A triceratops could be more than five times that!
Yeah, it figures it would not have them if it did not need them...T-rexes and Triceratops did live at the same time and the same place...the late Cretaceous period, about 68 million years ago in what is now North America. This is about 75-80 million years after the jurassic period...so that park has a lie for a name.
A triceratops would be around 3m tall and 9m long, so the Thunderfoot is not far off it would seem. up to 12.000 kilos. That's a solid "oh HELL no!" on the fluffy scale.

Bones 4 kickstarter, 2019
Made in Classic Bonesium PVC
probably available from reapermini.com soon
Im going to start another PBP. So far I have interest from @ShadowRaven, @dwarvenranger, @Dilvish the Deliverer, and @Kangaroorex.
We’re going to start the Serpent’s Skull adventure path. Pathfinder 1e.
All books are in play, but I reserve the right to veto something if it seems too gross/bloated.
Please utilize the Serpent’s Skull Players Guide from the Paizo website.
Abilities: 4d6, reroll all 1’s, drop lowest score, yielding ranges from 2-18 pre mods.
Avg. Starting gold.
We’ll follow the AP leveling track when possible.
We’ll have individual initiative.
I hope to get this started soon, so please post those characters.
1. HP beyond first level. Roll the hit die. If the roll is less than”avg” then take avg instead. Example: Wizard d6. Rolls a 1. Gets 4hp instead, before Con mod.
2. Acrobatics can be used to avoid AOO when standing from prone.
3. If someone is not responding and action is waiting for them, I’ll send a pm after 24 hours. If no response 24 hours later, I’ll take over that character to get action rolling again.
