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/

      Some quick work to get these on the table. They look good at arm's length, but a lot of the highlights are really rough, etc. I'm quite pleased with the eyes, as they were very quickly done and worked on the first go. I do need to clean up the bases a bit, add a little flock or something; I'll eventually do that with a batch of other tabletop figs.
       



       
      These are maybe the fifth or so figures I've painted of the Bones Black material. I like it a bunch, it's easier to deal with in pretty much every way than regular Bonesium, with the possible exception of mass material removal. Mold line cleanup is almost like working with metal, and the plastic is far less hydrophobic than regular Bonesium (note: "less hydrophobic" is not the same as "not hydrophobic").

      Hi all.  I just finished the Colossal Skeleton that I've had for a couple years now.  For the longest time I was holding off because I was afraid of doing a mini so much bigger than all the rest.  I've gotten some nice reviews on some of my recent stuff so I decided to take the plunge and try my hand at my first large figure.  I have several sets much larger than even this guy so I had to start somewhere.  The closeup pics show how much work I did on the fur for the back lioncloth as well as the wood grain lines I painted on the planks on his right thigh.  I based him on a wooden plaque my mom was getting rid of that I painted black.  I was doing more work on the base, it was supposed to have some more colours in it but I messed up on the drybrushing so I called it finished and hid the mistake with some static grass .  So far one friend has told me the blue rags pull him out of the mini because they look too new and blue while the rest of him is old and rotted.  Maybe he could do with some more staining on the blue but it doesn't bother me much.  Anyways, enough preamble, I hope you all like him enough as my first large mini!
       
      Edit: forgot to apologize for the make-believe "lightbox" photos, but that's how it goes.

      Did a little painting today to calm my nerves before the con.  Experimented with several brands of metallic paint.  Photos are not great, but you get the idea.
