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?

But if you leave it on, you can name him Licky. ^_^

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!

      Okay, here's the situation; my parents went away on a week's vacation, and now that you're rapping Fresh Prince and Jazzy Jeff to yourself (you are, right?), here's the real situation:
       
      I'm looking for a thing to represent a mounted Undead lord, the base size needs to be 75mm square (so fairly large), and it needs to occupy most of that space (or need minimal assistance from clever basing to look like it belongs on said base, at least). This precludes standard cavalry, obviously. It also needs to be wingless (or easily converted to wingless), as Wings would only serve to confuse my opponents in game (Kings of War). 
       
      I'm open to any material, any manufacturer, though Reaper is strongly preferred. I'm thinking of also doing a non-traditional mount pose, like the Ghost King standing on the mounts back or shoulder or whatever, or even better, the Male Revenant from Bones 2.
       
      My first thought was to take one of the two Grave Golems I have and use that (without the gate wings), but that would really be stretching the empty space on the base to the max, as it's probably better suited for a 40mm square or 50mm square base at max. Of course, I could always fill the base with tombstones and skulls and stuff and build it up to the center, but I'd like to avoid that. The in-game creature is substantial and I'd like the mini to represent the size well.
       
      My next thought was I could do something like @Girot did for the Bone Horror (3rd picture in the store), which he nixed the wings from, and I think it looks fine. The problem here is the monster itself is pretty substantially threatening without a rider and doesn't really look like a mount. I'm not sure where I would put one (I could put a traditional saddled mount on it I guess, but I'm iffy on this idea). The main issue I have pulling the trigger on this beastie though is size, I'm not seeing Bryangles on the store pics, and having a hard time finding other scale shots with this guy in it. I see on his Deviant Art page, Girot says he used a 60mm round, do you think an extra 15mm each side would be too much? Especially because that's all in one dimension? The rest of the base will need a lot of doctoring to make up for the emptiness. 
       
      Any other ideas?

      Presenting Sowerberry, the ghostly undertaker of the Dickensian faction from the game Twisted.
       
      Had a lot of fun painting him, particularly all his clocks, but I don't think I'll bother making any more stamped greenstuff bases, I just can't get them looking even semi-decent.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      I also painted this Plant Dragon to include in my Welcome to the Jungle diorama/terrain piece for my Lost World Project.
      Again, I thought it would be nice to show it off separately before it becomes part of the terrain.

      I have painted these guys to include them in a diorama/terrain piece for the Lost World and thought they deserved a show off of their own before they dissapear into the vast jungle.
       
      Enjoy.

      I also got the Layer Up! LTP kit back in December - Here is the first figure from that set  - the pirate. Once again, I followed the booklet, took pics, and then added a couple of touches. I really enjoyed painting him and he is seeing use on the table - although as a dessert nomad ranger rather than pirate! I'm still a very impatient user of layers though.... This figure also inspired me to buy some water effects to play with in the future...
