  1. Just a water frog peddling his water crop. Agents of M.E.O.W. beware! anyways, this mini just makes me smile. Makes me think of a grippli from an old campaign. I cant help but imagine that after saving the world, the tired frog put down roots and started peddling trinkets and goodies to the good people of the swamp. I do like the way this came out, its simple but even the base just seemed to work. hope you enjoy him too.
  2. Tried some cork on the base aswell, happy enough on the results, following bases were better though.
  3. This past week I painted Bufo, the Frogman (or maybe he's supposed to be a Toadman) figure from the Bones 4 Dreadmere Expansion. I decided I'd paint him like a frog, and since most all of my frog figures are already painted like colorful tree frogs and poison dart frogs, I thought I'd continue that pattern and paint Bufo like a Red Eyed Monkey Tree Frog. I love how full of character this figure is, and had been looking forward to painting him since the Kickstrater ran. Painted for tabletop use.
  4. Here my Mudcroack. Love the mini. Recently we have been playing the Tomb of Annihilation D&D campaign, based on the jungles of Chult, and we found many of these adorable frogmen creatures, Grungs. That motivated me to start working with Mudcroack despite having almost all the new GW goblins waiting. Well, frogs are usually green, jungles too, and it was all kinda repetitive; so I decided to use as little green as possible. For the basing I chose a resin scenic base that I adapted, and the "barbed bracken" plants from GW. Any feedback welcome, and if you want, please follow me on instagram at @albertnyarla
  5. Though all these sculpts from Stonehaven Miniatures are intended to be Grippli, I think they'll see more use as Grung as I run "Tomb of Annihilation" The figures are from the last few Kickstarters. The former frog. A froggy doodad. Must be a Mystic. You can tell by his shiny rock. SUMO! The Doot-Dooter: A nasty little Warlock. A Wizard with a fake beard. Who does he think he's fooling? A slippery Pickpocket. And a-rangin' we will go:
  6. That frog is finished.. finally...going to take some rest from scene set doing some more simple figure and base before go into my next one ( already have an idea with Reaper bones figure this time :D ) My WIP for this project here : http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/81457-darksword-frog-hunter/
  7. Well..let keep it busy, so starting a new minis / scenery with this cute frog and it bumblebee :) Just to change from the big muscle fighter guys or the green guy haha ( well frog skin may tend to be greenish though...) So very first beginning..as I do usually zenithal prime on the figure..and blocked out my base shape ( this one I am going to use the water texture from Vallejo, thus the hole made in the base )
  8. I have been painting up a bunch of Reaper trolls in the style of swamp frogs, starting with this one: I whipped up a couple others with brighter greens and more vibrant browns, to middling effect. I think the swamp-dwelling creeps just look a little more natural if they have more murky colors. This one will do nicely as the Big Bad for my marsh adventure. Critiques and advice would be most welcome. Thank you!
  9. 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!
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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!
  14. 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! )
  15. 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:
  16. 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:
  17. Howdy, What was I thinking... Thanks for the gander, Kev!
  18. robinh

    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!
  19. (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".
  20. 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...
  21. 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!!
  22. After receiving my Krackotoans from Dragon Bait, I thought I'd work on a bunch of related undersea encounters (mostly from Bones)
  23. Here they are, the Stonehaven Grippli. Spearman (mounted): Spearman (dismounted): Swordsman: Archer: Potionmaker: The swordsman is mt favorite, with the archer a close second. As always, C & C welcome.
