Daggertooth King Lizard with step-by-step

Recommended Posts

What a magnificent spiky fella! Love the color scheme--honestly, as I was scrolling down there were several pics where I thought "This is a great final step" only to find another, even BETTER step below. Thank you for the walkthrough.

      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?

      Hi!! my name is Katerina and I'm new to painting miniatures, I begun 
      with a miniature from NonSenseminiatures, the Barbarian, I buyed the 
      54mm because it's bigger and maybe easier to paint.
      I asked some help to NonSense and he already made a base coat for me, I 
      would like to get some help for painting because I see too much 
      information and don't know were begin.
      I already make painting but totally different
      Also he gave for me a discount code Katerina10%, because he will sell my 
      paints also!!!

      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.
