Lost Valley: Blacktooth Terror


Not actually a part of the Lost Valley expansion, but a separate add on: The Blacktooth Terror. A thunder lizard so large, he needs to hunker down to get into range of his prey.

If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands! If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands! If you’re happy and you know it just you clap your hands to show it…whut? Oh! That makes me so ANGRY! RIP AND TEAR!

Anybody remember Primal Rage? The arcade beat ’em up-game? Where assorted dinosaurs and giant apes went at it proper mortal kombat-style? I do. And I like to find inspiration for my paint schemes in just such ancient, half-forgotten tat. I remember playing this at my local arcade in the days when that was a thing. Later I got it on my Playstation. Yes, the first one. I tried seeing if the game was available anywhere legal these days, but no luck. One would think that this would be a good title for GOG.com or something.

This paint scheme is taken from the Primal Rage character named Diablo. Red all over with black stripes on the back. Evil through and through.  Lots of fire and lava all around.

 

How I painted it: Black undercoat. Scalecolor Navy Blue all over. When dry, drybrushed almost liberally with Vallejo Nocturna Crimson 74.018, but keeping the brush from being too wet so the blue is visible here and there. Hightlights were then carefully drybrushed with Vallejo Nocturna Lipstick 74.029, as this colour will cover and we don’t want to much coverage in this case. Over this I used Army Painter Dragon Red to make it proper RED. Further hightlights were drybrushed with Army Painter Pure Red and a very light dusting with Army Painter Lava Orange.  The Black bits are done in Vallejo Model Color Black Grey 70.862 with a slight hint of Vallejo Model Color Dark Sea Green 70.868 and Vallejo Model Color Black 70.950.

Details, base and all done in two or three hours. When the model has so excellent texture as this one has, it is almost like it paints itself. Coupled with the most of the model being the same colour, it really does not take all that much time either. The key is to use large, flat brushes.

 

*sniff* *sniff* hm…I’m sure I brushed my teeth this morning…where is this bad breath coming from?
