Duck into Platypus, Team Frog Critter Commando CFE7642

Recommended Posts

***Since I don't have enough projects going already....****

 

So this figure showed up in the BOGW, and I flashed back to Casket Works #13 where Reaper had Team Frog stuff in the catalog...

(Really bad scan....)

I don't really do anthropomorphic minis, but I saw the inner platypus screaming to get out, so....

 

Drilled a couple of holes in his bottom, and put a piece of paper clip into them as an armature for the new tail:

Then added some greenstuff,

Thinking that once that hardens, I can work from there to try to do some fur lines....
 
Any Ideas on how to make a monocle?

IDK, twist some very fine wire around the inner core of a pen and cut, chainmail style, to make a loop, then fill it with greenstuff and paint? Never done it, but if I was gonna...

Yay! Wooo! Runs away around happily!

 

For the monocle, do you have a mechanical pencil? I'm thinking, flatten a small ball of green stuff and then use the pencil tip to make a small mark forming a rim and lens?

That should have been around, not away. ^__^

Awesome idea!!

 

Be sure to put some glitter on the base, since the platypus sheds glittery dandruff...

I have a frog in a wet suit holding a revolver and smoking a cigar from Critter Commandos. Those are really neat.

I second the idea to use some very thin copper wire strands (lightly twisted) and form the monocle and the chain it is attached to. You can then paint the frame and add some clear acrylic gel to the monocle to simulate glass.

So I skin coated the tail, and attempted to sculpt something that looks like fur....

And here is a pic of the front for a better view of what I have to work with in regards the monocle...

I am also debating filing down the helmet to make it look like a civilian hat....

 

Comments and critiques welcome!

I think you can leave the helmet as is, and sculpt over the round part to create a top hat.

So I did some more on him while on the hangout....

 

I used my Dremel tool and some files to change his helmet to a more civilian looking hat, Carved the epaulettes from his shoulders with an X-Acto knife, and cleaned it us, again with the dremel and files

 

I then did a skin coat of green stuff on his head, and tried to make a fur pattern in it....

Wondering if I should try to do something with the belt and back pack....

 

Thanks for looking!

      A long time resident of the Shelf of Incompletion finally finished! 

      Although it doesn't photograph well, the SceneArama snow I used works nicely. I also found some Army Painter tufts I forgot I had.

      The Al Fasid, also known as "The Corrupted", are HaqqIslam's heavy troopers that will get the job done no matter the cost.  Their methods aren't always the prettiest, and they're never the stealthiest, and they have their own tricks they bring with them to the table.  They don't care about glory, and are solely chosen for their solid record of getting the job done.  Some enjoy it, some are in it for the solid paycheque, and others do it because the only thing theyy know what to do is fight.  Today I have the HMG version, who also conveniently carries a grenade launcher that can shoot either regular grenades to keep enemy heads down, or smoke grenades to provide additional cover.  Oh, they also pack anti-personnel mines with them too...
       


       
      Since the "tactical rock" under his right foot kind of looked rather strikingly like the backpack for a Yu Jing (even though I'm not having any luck finding models to confirm this), I decided to try and test out my planned colour scheme for them.  That's right, I'll be going with a dark raver / cyberpunk burnt neon pink for their general colour, because why not - I'm going with hot orange for my Haqq...

      Please see the main post here for rules, questions and general chatter, while using this thread to keep a list of links to your show-offs or show-off related comments in a single post: A reminder to please adhere to miniatures posting guidelines as usual.

      All the information you need should be here.

      As a change of pace from the Hard Mode Challenge, this round will have a Skill Challenge.

      May and June 2019 Challenge

      Your challenge is: 9!

      Bonus Challenge: The First!
      "Mayday!" is an international distress signal used in verbal communication in ships and aircraft.  Your first bonus challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to paint a miniature in some distress.  This could be a diorama, an adventurer falling into a trap, villian whose weapon just broke, or anything else your mind can conjure.

      Bonus Challenge: The Second!
      The Solstices: June marks the beginning of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere and Winter in the Southern Hemisphere.  Paint a miniature or a pair of miniatures showcasing this duality.

      Skill Challenge: OSL
      Try your hand at painting a miniature using OSL or Object-Source Lighting.  If you feel like this is something that is already in your wheelhouse, work on your technical skills in another area.  Practice NMM, TMM, wet-blending, sculpting, or anything else you've been meaning to try.

      As always, the game is made up and the points don't matter!
