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
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.
an add on in the
Bones 4 kickstarter, 2019
Made in Classic Bonesium PVC
probably available from reapermini.com soon
Another mini which has been done for a while: a raptor. This was meant for a module that uses a raptor hatchling as an animal companion for a kobold Ranger.
Here is a link to the WIP.
A dreaded sight on the field of battle the mighty Draconian chargers strike fear into the hearts of all their foes as they barrel down upon them to trample them into the earth.
This my triceratops knight conversion. The Triceratops is a WizKids Nolzurs marvelous miniature, while the rider is from a Reaper bones black overlord cavalry.
I use admit that this is my largest conversion yet and i got to learn several new skills in doing this.
Thankyou all for looking!
