Mudcroak, Squog Shaman (77269) (Bones)

Recommended Posts

   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! :lol:

Looks great! You getting ready for the Frostgrave jungle supplement?

 

 

Thanks, Erifnogard!  I'd like to say that, yes, I plan that far ahead; but the truth is that it was purely coincidental that I started working on these about the same time that the new rules were announced. :)  

 

 

 

Great job!

 

They walked away from the Lost World and you found them did you?

 

 

Thanks, Xherman!  

 

They merely showed up in response to my offer of all the flies you could eat. :)

Very nice!

Thank you, Sharkbelly!

 

 

  

Such a fun mini to paint! I really like your take on him. The red is wonderful!

Thank you, Pochi! I find just copying nature sometimes yields the best color schemes! :)

Agreed! I have painted 2 of this guy as well as 2 sets of the warrior frogs to accompany them. I used Poison Dart Frog and Tree Frog patterns for mine. I like your red. I think I might have another one of these and will keep this in mind if/when I paint it again.

Cool!  Are photos of your's posted somewhere I could see?

    I shared a photo of the actual frog variety I used for this guy and the others in my first Squog "Show Off" thread a couple weeks ago, if you want it for reference:  http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/72820-squogs-with-trident-77268-bones/

      2020 has-been rough on everyone but some people have had it rougher than others.  A friend of mine is disabled and has had a really hard time just trying to keep basic necessities done.  
       
      I thought I would send her a little friend who's got simpler an cuter problems. Purple is her favorite color.  He goes out in the mail on Monday
       
      Hope you like him too...

      Wizards of the Coast D&D metal model.
      From the year Two-Thou-sand (you have to say it like Conan O'Brien)
      Rescued from the Island of Lost Pewture, (aka my friends rpg storage shed)  and painted up. I love his goggles, I don't think you see enough of those on wizard minis. I can see a fireball coming.

      Back when the Bones 4 Kickstarter was running, when the Giant Rhinoceros Beetle was revealed in the Fan Favorites set, someone posted this photo of a Frog riding a Beetle to the Enthusiasm Thread, and I knew it was a conversion I would eventually want to try.  I have an extensive Frog Army, and I wanted such a figure to be a Leader or Hero for my forces. 

       
      I had the pieces I needed at hand; the Bones Black "Giant Rhinoceros Beetle", and my rider - for which i  had decided to use the Bones "Mudcroak" Squog figure.
       


       
      As I looked at Mudcroak, I knew I would have to separate him from his base, but I knew there was no way I could remove all those little toes from the base without damaging them.  So, right off the bat I made the decision to just remove his feet along with the base, with the plan that I would then resculpted them with greenstuff directly onto the beetle's back once I had the frog glued in place.
       
      Here's a test fit, with the frog held in place with blue-tac.
       
      That's all for right now.

      Ok, this may have been asked before and I have a terrible memory and I could not find a straight answer in the FAQ.

      The white material vs the slightly less white material (not to be confused with bones black)
      I have a what is essentially a bucket of bones miniatures from all 4 kickstarters.  Im a slow painter.  
      I decided to pick a few out to paint.  I painted Almaran the gold and noticed his head was deformed.  replaced it
      Next I tried Durok the dwarf ranger and I noticed his right side did not mold correctly.  Nothing I could do about it but its fine not complaining.
      Ive noticed most of my bones 4 that had the new grey material have not had these sort of issues.
      I would show pics but I dont wanna...

      My question is has this issue been fixed for the older bones miniatures,  Are they being cast in this new grey material?
