      I've got a bunch of amphibious friends to share with you all today!
       

       
      While in search of some suitable tribal-inspired Bullywug for my ongoing nautical campaign project, I stumbled upon these Croak Raiders from Privateer Press's Hordes.  these metal frogs perfectly balanced the jungle, tribal tree-frog look I wanted with the bulbous look of Bullywugs as opposed to the more nimble Grung who are often stylized as Poison Dart Frogs.  I absolutely fell in love with these frogs and their giant necks.  I was gifted a set during the holidays and quickly ordered Underchief Mire to stand in as the wannabe King of my Bullywug society.
       
      I used these frogs as a chance to get used to my airbrush and try out some other speed painting methods, but really struggled with the slog of painting of painting so many similar things.Especially picking out each knot on the ridiculous amount of rope these guys wear.  You can read a bit about my painting process, especially on my first test model, on this WIP thread HERE.
       
      For now, let's take a closer look at the finished frogs:
       
      Bullywug Throwers

       
      First up are these pot-throwing Bullywug.  The center one with the blue feathers was my test model.  Spent some time working out different techniques and color choices on him.  Ended up changing a few things to help the leather loin cloth stand out from the rope, but I largely got it right the first time.
       
      In the close ups below you can see a better view of the quiver which became a bane of my existence during this project.  All of the frogs, except for the chief, came with these matching quivers.  I could have left them unattached, but they felt incomplete without them and so I suffered through the arduous task of picking out all of the details on these ten times.

      Bullywug Spearmen

       
      Next up are these warty frogs equipped with spear-launchers (or atlatl for you weapon-experts).  I like that the quivers that these guys wear contain both arrows and pots, making it seem as if all of the frogs have access to either method of fighting.  I particularly enjoyed the turtle shells on these guys, but getting paint into the tight gap between their right arms was hard.

      Bullywug Pyros

       
      These roguish frog-men have stepped it up by igniting their spears.  I had a fun time keeping their faces in shadow by selectively highlighting them.  I also got to play around a bit with OSL.  If I had planned ahead better, I may have tried to paint these up as if they were partially in darkness for a more dramatic OSL look, but I prepped them along with the others for my standard daylight paintjob.  I did try to capture a bit of a warmer glow near the flames and along the right sides of the frogs.  I'm happy enough with it even if it's not super stylized or dramatic.

      Bullywug Torch-Bearer

       
      This angry croaker came as the unit leader in the Croak Raiders box.  I was actually missing him originally, but Privateer Press quickly corrected the issue.  Had a bit of fun painting up his mouth and giving him some perfect little teeth ala' the Bullywug from NADDPOD.  He also got a bit of a glow around the torch.

      Bullywug King

       
      This guy was just too much fun not to pick up.  Grumpy and serious.  I imagine the Bullywug adopted a mock-feudal society after briefly encountering human explorers.  They don't quite understand what it entails besides showering a king with riches in order to be stronger than your enemies.  I really like how this guy turned out.  Especially the gem on his crown and the texture on his stone blade.

      I am normally not one to copy box art, but I really loved the look of these guys on the official art.  I borrowed heavily from those examples, but once I had started working on them, I allowed myself to get more creative.  I really like how the speckling on their bodies turned out, and am pleased that the Red, Yellow, and Blue quivers blend in well enough while still providing an easy visual distinction between individual units.
       
      These were really fun models and I'm very proud of the final results even if it took me a month longer to finish them than I had anticipated.
       
      What do you think?

      Long time I did not open a little wip and I decided to get onto one of the privateer press figure I had on my shelf.
      Already did a preshade pass using some of their paint and also a thin glaze with liquitex ink just to have a more saturated blue tint.

      My FLGS is doing a Halloween themed painting contest. As your entry needs to be purchased in store I decided to go with a Hordes miniature I had been eyeing for awhile, Lady Karianna Rose, Grymkin Solo. I put her on a Secret Weapon base and added a couple of pumpkins, now on to primer.

      A fitting adversary for the Benthic Walker and my aquanauts, this burly fishy brute packs a massive steampunky harpoon cannon and a cape made of human leather. (How aquatic species do their leather-tanning, I don't know, but it seems to work for this guy.) 



      He's also adorned with fishhooks, which must be a bold countercultural statement among fishmen. Like a necklace of bullets and syringes for a human, I guess. 

      Big fella, he came with a Large base but could pass for a very burly Medium creature in my opinion.



      This brute is not some lungbreather hybrid from Innsmouth; this is 100% Deep One stuff. 



      Oh yes, also the rotten hands and bones on the gruesome cape. Trophies of the Ones that Got Away, perhaps?
