I was given the Dark Sword Frog Wizard as a Christmas Gift.

I don't want the giver of the gift to think I was unhappy with their choice;

(must always leave open channels for future Mini's) !!!

I really like the challenge of this one, and the familiars around his feet,

and the bat are hysterical !

So I am doing another one of those froggies that I dearly love.


I wonder if he is holding the "Holy Hand Grenade Of Antioch" ???


I have him primed now.

That does indeed look like a Holy Hand Grenade.... Yay! Another froggy!

You have been so busy my friend, that I don't think you have caught up on the mini's I have been doing.

Did you notice the Jungle Lord that I posted in show offs last week ?

Hope you are well !

Looking forward to another Froggy!  I love DSM's anthropomorphic line.  Your painting of these are making me want to move my racoon thief or my JLC mini's up my queue.

Thanks Silvervane;

They are so much fun when you play with your imagination !

I want to do this one 180 degree's from the dark flame lit version they show on their catalog.

I've got a much more vibrant image in my head.

Hope I can pull it off !

(I keep on lusting after the King Richard the lion heart.. but oh boy.. that is a tough mini !!!

Since the temps were below zero I got a jump (oh arghh) on the Frog this morning.

Did some brown-lining and a few brown washes to get a chance to look at all that

is to be painted on this mini.  The two little familiars around his ankles are hysterical, and

the one eyed bat is a hoot !  Books, Chains, small beard, and the holy hand grenade, and robe

gives plenty to fiddle with.


I'm thinking of an Orange/Black frog to begin with (maybe.. Frogs come in many many colors).


Here are a few detailed photos. (I added a second light source, and modified my camera).

I just got such a giggle going as I started actually painting the Frog Wizard.

These things just appeal to my sense of humor.  I can't resist just going out

on a limb, and being insane when it comes to them.  I should tell robinh to SIT DOWN

before he reads further.  His favorite color is in play...ORANGE.  I'm going to do the frog

in Orange and black, but mostly orange !  So here he is with a nice solid coat of

Orange on him:


Edit To Add:

(I forgot to paint in his hands !

DUH.  Photo with hands painted added)

Thanks Ub3r;

Now I have to start thinking about the frog markings, and the other factors in this mini...

You know how much I love to just mess around when it comes to these frogs.

The Frog prince and his canary hat, and pink britches were just a sample..ROFL.


I've got some ideas on this one.. the Holy Hand Grenade and that hat..hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm..


Oh, I am evil.

      So here they are. The Ogre Squad. You can see the WIP here.

      I love how nonchalant and casual this guy looks.

      especially when compared to this guy.

      The oldest of my ogres. Metal and unfinished for years because I was just never happy with him. 

      another angry ogre
      fond of the face(s) on this guy and also the pig. The rope on the barrel was a little frustrating though. It had a mold line right down its length and even though I wasn't doing much line cleaning for these guys that was both a hard one to fix and a hard one to ignore.

      the bones black ogre has the best grumpy ogre face. He painted up nicely with very little clean up to ignore.

      the other metal ogre Kagunk and his amazing shield. This guy sat just primed for a good long while as I just was never sure how to handle the shield face. The older chieften's club face was easier since it was always going to look like wood, but this I had to think about a bit. I think it works pretty well.

      a few attempts at a group shot. Bigger minis are hard to keep all in focus at once.
      There it is then. There are a couple of details I see I still need to do and the metal chieftains need to be sealed. But otherwise that is it for this lot. I did by the other ettin in bones and I might order the other ogre leader and I think I have a bones half ogre around somewhere.  If I paint them I may update this with new squad members. We will see.

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of an anthropomorphic animal I painted. This Dark Sword Miniatures DSM8107, Joey the Thug - Sheltie Rogue was sculpted by Dave Summers for their Critter Kingdoms miniature range. I used tree bark and sand on its 40mm diameter base.

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of an anthropomorphic animal I painted. This Dark Sword Miniatures DSM8083, Harrek the Otter Cleric was sculpted by Dave Summers for their Critter Kingdoms miniature range. I used a natural river rock as promontory on its 40mm diameter base. I wish you all a fantastic weekend!

      Hello forum Family, gonna show you my version of D'Vandra Lukesia, the metal one. I had hard time with her (but this is part of the fun, isn't?), so many tiny details and her face is sooo tiny 
      In any case I managed to paint her and I'm happy of she came out! 
      About the palette I chose the colors on the fly, started with the yellow skirt and simply add colors at the moment I needed to paint a detail, like the amaranth scarf, or the blue bag, the green vial, and so on.
      I hope you like her too :)
