I don't know whether these are done or not... Part of me feels like doing more contrast but part of me thinks that they are good enough for the table. 

 

These are all the Bones plastic bloodstone gnomes. I forget which one naturally appears on the beetle, and have done various body and arm swaps to create a unit. 

 

They will be part of an army/warband so one thing I need to decide is whether the skin tone is too dark for such small models. There are lots of small infantry models to paint and I want them to stand out whilst still having a 'cold' colour scheme.

      Here's 2 beetle swarms that I knocked out pretty quick this weekend. 
       
      One basic brown, and the other with a more metallic look to them.
       
      Let me know what you think.

      I finished off this, which is the first unit/test unit in a warband I'm putting together. 
       
      I think I am going to go for off white skin for the rest of the army. Lots of fun with the bases, the ruins are by Fenris Games, then I added various bits from North Star and some jars from TT Combat.

      Back in November I posted over on the Conversion WIP sub-forum about a mounted figure I was making using the Bones 4 Giant Rhinoceros Beetle and the Mudcroak Squog figure: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/93699-frog-riding-beetle-conversion/
       
      This past week I finally got around to painting the converted figure, and I  wanted to share the results.

      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.

      I painted these up awhile ago and finally got them varnished. No blog post as these were painted before the blog was started.
