Killer Frogs (02665)

Recommended Posts

I finally got back to work, this weekend, on some minis. These I started and finished in the last few days. Jason Wiebe's Killer Frogs, from Reaper. Purchased, to be honest, solely because they were one of two Reaper products the FLGS carried, heh. Hoping they'll restock. But they inspired me a bit and will be making an appearance in the PF game I'm running.

 

Anywho, I enjoyed painting them. I did pretty much everything with GW washes aside from some highlighting with a yellow on each and the black slits for their eyes. Oh, and the bases I washed with Reaper's brown wash. Was unsure how exactly to approach the leaper's support piece so aimed for simple. Tried different colors on them--got a little hypno-toad with one, lol. But I'm really pleased with them, so hope you enjoy them, too.

 

I'm (of necessity) trying to figure out some better photography, also, so apologies for some oddness on that front.

Thanks for looking! Any input or advice or anything you have, about anything, is most welcome.

I painted those for one of my boys some years back. I did a fire toad and an ice toad.

 

1,2,5,6,8, and 9 look pretty good. Whatever you did for those photos is working.

Yeah, I'm not sure how I was getting that blue tint on those others. Must have been shadows of my phone/hand when I had the lamp in certain positions. Some of the okay ones are okay enough, though, that it makes me want to work this on out, at least enough to get steady with it. I'm already thinking I need to create an elevated position to set the minis so I can light them (and photograph them) from lower angles, also, make it even (though that wasn't as much of an issue/entirely possible with these guys due to their low profiles).

      Naturally, the giants of the Lost Valley are Stone Giants, seeing as the Lost Valley is in the Stone Age.
       

      FeeFie, Fo and Fum the three Stone Giants. I rebased them on 60mm bases.

      I painted most of these figures quickly or experiment when I did so. The exception is the reaper figure. I didn't really paint his face with too much detail, you can't see it due to the hat and what I did paint is sufficient (white eyes, basic colour variation on skin).

      They look better in person (I swear, the light makes the skin look washed out more than it is, plus the hair has darker shadows.)

       
      Feedback and Critiques are welcome and appreciated.

      This is my first mini painting, just finished it tonight. I have a lot to learn, especially the correct way to dry brush. But I followed a Reaper paint kit on the steps for their minis and this is what I came up with.
       
      Once I get the hang of the minis themselves I'd like to learn to make custom bases, this one just looks awful as is.
       
      For some reason I can't get the picture to show the color true either, it's a much more grayish blue than this bright color that is shown.
       
      All in all, I'm pleased with its turn out.

      Pulled this guy out of the current round of the Box of Goodwill and painted him up over the course of two evenings. 
       

       

       

       
      I apologize for the low quality photos, but I've had such low drive to get pictures taken lately that I just wanted to break the ice and get the ball rolling.

      I am sad to see the paint has rubbed off in some places, might have to try to patch that up by using some Reaper liner.
