i am not sure where your finding those pics but they fit your story line perfectly!

 

It seems Magic the Gathering has a universe Ixalan now, full of Vampire conquistadores, Pirates and feathered dinos ridden by natives in a jungle...

There are "some" similarities...

Do you think I should sue them?

 

 

Anyway, @malefactus and his good friend Cpt. John had sent me some minis ( darn was that 2016 already?) Last year I painted the War Turtle with Howhad I got from them.

And now I will start on these guys, they also sent me.

 

Heavy Frog Cavalry on Toads.

Elite Cavalry of the Frogking, issued with scavenged firearms!

 

Some prepping and dryfitting.

Toads are glued now.

I'm deciding to use the tongue or not for the one with the open mouth.

 

Frogs will propably become bright poison dart frogs.

Toads, I'm thinking..maybe the Chinese Firebelly Toad?

Bombina Orientalis?

I see that you've taken to the Ixalan art. ::D:

Should we mention the Ixalan expansion releases in like a week, and therefore will hopefully have even more delicious inspiration?

Interesting!

I need feathered dinos, so sad there are so few useable minis available for that!

Old school dinos..I have...lots...

 

Now gimme the feathered ones.

 

Anyway, paintschemes/patterns etc will be a good inspiration, this Ixalan is clearly based on my thread..someone here must be working for MTGH.

Maybe leave the tongue on but have it caught in a beer can.

 

I think it will leave the tongue off, like Robinh suggested, it looks more natural somehow.

Buy a couple of parakeets & rig up a toothy beak cover. They'd probably love playing with the other dinos.

Wizards of the Coast has been doing D&D/M:tG crossovers lately. I wonder if they'll make minis for that?

As some of you might have noticed, we had a Candy Exchange between me, @Paradoxical Mouse, @NomadZeke @OneBoot @Thes Hunter and @Beagle.

Beagle sent British Candy and I sent Dutch Candy, in exchange we got US Candy.

 

Of course we also included some minis or glitter here and there...( I was sufficiently glitterbombed by Thes Hunter with Jungle/Dino shaped glitter!)

And Paradoxical Mouse included new recruits for the Lost World!

      I finally got around to taking photo's of MuuMuu.  I got her orgianlly as a possible bonus figure for modern Zombicide.  Never got around to painting her before getting sucked into black plague.  So I decided to finisher up.  Here is MuuMuu:


      Thanks for any looking and any C&C you feel like giving.

      Continuing my paint up of all the bosses in the Forge of Fury, here is Kavorgh, painted up to be the Orc Wight Champion.  My first time playing with a light box to get better pictures too :)

      Reaper Miniatures 03716 Ghouls sculpted by Bob Ridolfi and old school RAFM 02953 Ghoul Warlock.
       
      I painted these in August for a D&D encounter but I had to repaint them because the varnish has created a white fume all over the models when I sealed them. It probably happened to many of you as well. It was the third time I wasted painted models because of that undesirable fume without being able to put my finger on the reason why. I think I now know why it happen.
       
      Trick or treat : A true horror story
       
      It was very humid outside that last August. Fortunately, I was lucky enough to shelter myself in the basement while I was speed painting some exquisite Reaper Miniature models. Late that day, as I was done painting a hand full of Undead models, I decided to seal them with that half-full / half-empty "you choose" can of anti shine matt varnish. It's important to mention that I had already used that very same spray can a month earlier.
       
      This being said, after shaking the spray can for a good minute or so, I opened the basement door leading into the backyard. Immediatly, a draft of hot and humid air invaded the doorway and shook my face. I remember swearing when I felt the moisture condensing to beads of sweat on my skin. Without losing a second, wanting to get back to shelter in my man cave, I spray some figurines. In the darkness of the night, everything seemend to be allright under the dim light of the portico.
       
      The day after, I noticed the damage. By a terrible curse, the models I spayed the night before were covered with a thin, powdery layer of white dust. I gazed around looking for sneering Gremlins but saw nothing unusual. Disconcerted, I became aware of the extent of the damage. There has to be a logical explanation behind this ghouly phenomenon.
       
      As much as I like science fiction and horror stories, I had to find a scientific explanation to all this madness. Wasting other models by this evil spell was not an option. I reused the same spay can to make a test. The only parameter that seemed to be different was the fact that it was very humid and hot outside the night before.
       
      I did not want to ruin hours of time spent painting another model to do this test. So, I sprayed a colored cardboard. Furthermore, I made an exception to the sanitary rule and used the spray can inside. The result was surprising. Even though I was using the same spay can, there was no fume this time. Since then, I've been reusing that same spry can on other models whitout any problem.
       
      What happened that draid August night? Was it the imps playing tricks on me or just the excessive difference of temperature and the heavy humidity in the air catched by the aerosol varnish? I will probably never know but one thing is for sure, I will always test my spray can on an expendable object before spraying my art.

      Right, I hemmed and hawed over the best way to show these off, and sadly, ultimately decided on linking to an external album, rather than uploading 70 some odd photos to Reaper's servers. I've shown off several of these minis/units before over time, but I just got a new phone with a way nicer camera and I thought it would be nice to get the whole thing documented. I'm nowhere near done, I have always enjoyed painting the Undead and will likely continue to add to it forever, but here it is in it's current state. It's based for Kings of War, includes tons of Reaper, Mantic, GW, and a few other manufacturer's in small quantities as well. 

      Enough talk, here's the album:
      https://photos.app.goo.gl/CrTmoTDLmJte6agt9

      And here's a sample excerpt:

       
      It's about 5 years +/- in the making but includes some minis from my previous war gaming days as well, I think all were repainted though. 
       
      EDIT: Apologies, some of the models are dustier than I realized. Next time I get shots I'll dust first. There's even a small cobweb on one, but that kinda looks awesome. The dust not so much.

      Thanks for looking!

      A rotting stench catches you nose. You see a creature slowly moving in your direction waving a dagger. At first, it looks like a beggar wearing rags. He utters a low moan and you realize as it's coming out of the shadows that he's missing part of its scalp and has a gaping hole in its abdomen through which you see his ribs and his petrified organs. Turning to the cleric, you scream with horror. Zombie!
      Here's 02102, Plague Zombie, Dark Heaven Legends sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.
      It's the second time i paint this model, here's the link to 02043: Undead Rising, 02102: Plague Zombie & 02157: Undead Awakening I painted 10 years ago.
