  1. Frog Troll (Ice Troll 77344)

    Painted this troll for an upcoming adventure. The party will be fighting a bunch of trolls in a swamp, and while I loved this Ice Troll fig, traditional blues and whites for an ice troll wouldn't fit the game. I modeled the colors after leopard frogs, as I've always loved the greens and browns together for a swampy atmosphere. If I had to do it over again, I would probably make the brown spots on his arms and legs a little bigger and more prominent, as they turned into my favorite part. I'll need a lot more trolls for this battle, so I'll most likely model the painting after this one. Comments and advice are welcome as always. Thank you!
  2. Mega Minis giant frog/toad

    This is a giant frog from Mega Minis (you can't get it from there any more, though. He sold the molds to another company; I'm not sure who) that I have painted up as an Ice Toad for use in FrostGrave games. Also part of my Morihalda Challenge.
  3. Mudcroak and friends.

    The first two flew by, mudcroak was more annoying to paint. why does a frog have shells and starfish decorations. can frogs even live in the ocean? Wiki says - Fejervarya cancrivora come the closest. they live in mangrove swamps and don't just die if put in seawater. I guess I could have used them as a pattern. ah well. Anyway this just about covers my Bones2 goal for the month.
  4. 02630: Frogmen 1/3

    This is the first figure that I completed when I came back from my hiatus. I'd done his eyeballs and a tiny bit of his snout before the hiatus, then completed him after. Bonus - facial recognition catches both of the human heads as faces, hah! Title has 1/3 because the package has 3 frogmen in it. Again, still suffering on the photography side, but it is improved from just the paint table. The green shading and his throat went really well. The dragonfly "meh". His clothing "meh". But hey, was dusting off the brushes. The scarab on his staff went really well, but the photos don't really catch it. I imagine this frog leading a Green Power rally, then inciting the frogs to slay any non-amphibian in their site. I think I counted 5 species in what he is holding or wearing. He's a villainous slimeball.
  5. Freshman year of high school, my friend Bob Evans (no lie) introduced me to the world of miniatures. I thought they were gorgeous and it looked like a supremely fun hobby, one I'd really enjoy... but I'd probably be no good at it. Besides, you've got to prime those things, and where was Mom gonna let me spraypaint? Fast forward two decades and I've finally started painting miniatures. (And I don't need to prime them! And there's brush-on primer now, too!) It seems silly, but the hobby is everything I've always wanted it to be: Meditative, rewarding, challenging, and a whole lot of fun. I dipped my toe in with the LTP kit and was hooked. Six weeks later and here we are! Without further ado, here are my first few fellas that I painted after burning through that kit and the Layer Up LTP kit. I'm surprised that there's not more love for these little guys on the forums or in the inspiration gallery! They do a good job straddling the line between adorable and vicious. These figures were my most challenging yet, with a lot of detail work. Each one took probably four to six hours to paint, and the teeth really gave me some trouble there. Meet Kermit and his thugs, Dig'em and Michigan J. I'm still a newbie to this hobby, so I'd gladly take any comments and criticism in the interest of honing my skills!
  6. Mudcroak, Squog Shaman (77269) (Bones)

    I painted up Mudcroak, Squog Shaman, this past week, to go with the unit of Squogs I completed last week. I used the same Strawberry Poison Dart Frog color scheme I used on the unit. I also experimented with giving him one sightless milky eye, to add to his mystical nature. (He can see more things with one eye, than most can with two! )
  7. Last week I posted my first group of 5 Squog Warriors; the ones wielding a trident, painted up as Strawberry Poison Dart Frogs This past week, I finished up the next batch of 5; the ones with the spears. You will also notice that I converted one of the spear-frogs into a leader by cutting the spear off and reusing the spear blade as a sword; then cutting the arm at the elbow and repositioning it so it would be in more of a natural sword holding position. I also borrowed one of the skull helmets from a Mudcroak, Squog Shaman, figure and attached it to the leader's head. This completes a unit of 10 of them. Like with the others, nothing fancy, just a tabletop paint job. And here's a couple group shots of all 10 together:
  8. Squogs with Trident (77268) (Bones)

    This past week I started working on a unit of 10 Squogs to add to my old Poison Dart Frog Army; which is made up mostly of Eureka Miniatures' Frog Warriors. I thought the Squogs would fit right in with the rest of the troops, as some sort of more tribal cousins. I started with the ones that came from the Bones 2 Kickstarter in the Swamp Things set, and ordered a couple more packs from Reaper. This week, I painted five of the trident armed ones; converting one into a standard bearer. I made the standard from the petal off an artificial flower. Nothing fancy, just a quick tabletop paint job for these guys. And I decided to model their coloring from a kind of strawberry poison dart frog:
  9. Kev!'s 77377: Toad Demon

    Howdy, What was I thinking... Thanks for the gander, Kev!
  10. Frog guard.

    I have been painting and repainting a number of minis and while the current one takes a nice relaxing bath in Simply Green I finished off the Frog Guard with Trident from DarkSword. DSM7972 While painting this I was reminded of Jasonater's early endeavor of a whole Frog Fairy tale menagerie (I know he did the prince, queen and bishop).. Hopefully this one fits right in with them!
  11. (reaper bones #77269) I thought I'd show off my Frog Shaman before I continued him much further. When I saw him in the box, I immediately thought I wanted to do a poison-dart style, so I set out to do it. I kinda' invented my own dart-species for him... but I think it'll work out well. Obviously, it'll look better as it comes along (when I do his teeth and eyes especially), but for now I just thought I'd show off his skin as it comes along. Next step: Eyes (probably going to be an obnoxious yellow-green). After that: Making his skin and eyes a HIGH gloss to make him look "wet". Then.... I can start to work on his clothes and accessories (and teeth). Note: I did his skin by coloring him with many obnoxious colors (faded to the best of my ability from one to the other), and then after that dried - I went over it with a thick black where needed to put in his "pattern".
  12. Lidless Eye Hobbies and the Lizard Guys

    A quickie batch of Mantic "Kings of War" Salamanders, done up as cave-dwelling Troglodyte types. Had an issue with some fuzzy primer with these games...curse you, southern Virginia. Thought I fixed it, but the photos betray it...
  13. Frog Demon Lord Poison

    Ok guys The immense warm welcome to this awesome forum has inspired me so I have worked my butt off doing Lord Poison The Frog Demon I used lots of different poison frog skins to inspire me I really hope you like this model it was so much fun to paint! and once again thanks for the awesome welcome! Comments are gratefully received!!
  14. 02684 Frog Demon

    That's a ballsy rat!
  15. After receiving my Krackotoans from Dragon Bait, I thought I'd work on a bunch of related undersea encounters (mostly from Bones)
  16. I had a really good time painting these. I had previously painted my Mudcroak as a poison dart frog. When I saw the squog warriors at one of my local stores, I was really excited except....the blister pack only had one squog. Got a deal on him so I only have one warrior. (I can always get more!) I decided to paint him as a tropical tree frog. A friend of mine at another game store had his box of Bones II and gave me his frogs to paint for him. I did his Mudcroak as a tree frog, one warrior as a dart frog, and the last as a corroboree frog. Here they are!
  17. Mudcroak 77269

    Here is my version of Mudcroak (Bones). I love him! The store only had 1 or I would have purchased several more and will be getting more as soon as I can. I had a great time painting him and want to do several other froggy patterns. I also purchased the frogmen...well frogman as only one was in the package. (Sad face) I am planning on painting that one with the typical tree frog bright green with orange feet pattern. I need more frogs! I painted this little guy while I was waiting for the water effects to dry on my exchange mini. So, here is Mudcroak in all his poison dart frog glory! (The sun is very bright this morning so the pictures a brighter and more heavily shadowed than I would like but I wanted to show him off now and not wait!)
  18. 92858: Frog Demon

    I was going for a swampy base. It kind of worked and it kind of didn't. I attached the frog demon to the base before working on the basing and that was probably a mistake. I had a heck of a time getting the water effects to get underneath his feet without getting it all over the place. I tried to hide some of the mistakes with bushes 'n stuff
  19. 77377 Toad Demon poison frog edition

    Ready to go off to it's recipient..
  20. So I was happy enough to grab one of these at Origins before they are available online.. decided he'd be good for my exchange partner.. Inspiration: So far..
  21. These are frogman warriors from the new Bones II Kickstarter figures, sculpted by Jason Wiebe. Like the accompanying frog shaman, these critters are full of character and interesting detail. I painted them up like common meadow leopard frogs, the sort of spotted green ones I played with as a child, because they seemed a bit big and burly to be tropical tree frogs. The one with the spear and human-face-shield is 92681; the one with the fork and turtleshell shield is 92682. WIP thread here. Just as a side note: Does anyone know how to make it so the pictures in the post are nice and small but we can click on them and see a larger one?
  22. So this is the new Bones II Kickstarter frogman shaman, 92683, sculpted by Jason Wiebe. I love this figure. It has lots of delightful details. Its staff alone is a treasure chest of goodies: a narwhal tusk wrapped with seashells and a starfish, with a little puffer fish hanging off the top. The shaman is also wearing a frog skull which is available in the Boneyard as a separate piece. The teeth, however, are silly. Frogs don't have them. I don't think this one could close its mouth properly on those. Perhaps they are false teeth worn for battle. I painted the shaman and the two warriors that go with it like a common leopard frog, the sort I used to catch as a kid. WIP thread here.
  23. This was made for and with my girlfriend. She painted the princess most of it..I finished it. This way she wanted to know what my hobby was like. It seems she likes to look at these but painting is not her thing. Too bad, I think she got talent. The Prince woos the Princess from the other pond, a Jester is chaperonne.
  24. Frog!

    Using Ardellen as a base, A little clay for a head, and just some paint, I made Frog as a character. Now I made a character based upon him in Dungeons and Dragons, and was frustrated in finding a real figure to match him. This came out pretty well I think. I've really enjoyed taking figures outside of what they were designed for and making something unique.
  25. I am fairly certain this is the first metal mini I've ever painted, and I figured it would be a good time to try my hand at NMM. It's based on the recipes and instructions from the old LTPK3, though I didn't have some of the paints from the kit and had to do a little extra mixing. I'm... not super thrilled with the NMM, though I think it actually looks better in these photos than it does in hand. The sickle looks especially sloppy, since it's the largest metal object and also has the most complex shape. So I'm specifically looking for NMM tips here, though I'd be happy to hear other critiques while I'm still working on him. I do think I made things hard on myself by choosing something with just small metal objects, rather than large areas to help sell the illusion. Parway himself is pretty much done, aside from the NMM, so I just need to do the frog and the staff after I get the NMM to my liking. I'm particularly proud of his face and skin, which I think are some of the best I've ever done. NMM to look for: left bracer, earring, sickle, coins on staff (pictured separately and really huge for some reason), button on bag. Photos aren't the best, but they're good enough for WIP I think. EDIT: Just realized I posted the same photo twice. Fixed!
