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.
