I will paint and create a Reptilian Army pure for fun.
It will consists of many different kind of Reptiles and Amphibians.
Mostly Snakemen, Lizardmen, Frogmen, Dragonmen, Turtlemen, Fishmen, Dinosaurs and Insects.
I will happily include any monster I think will fit.
A Tarrasque will be the centrepiece at some sort as the Living Lizard God.
I do not play any games, so this will be pure for my own and (I hope your) fun to create.
EDIT: The above was my original plan, over time and thanks to the comments made by other Forumites, this has developed into a story.
This resulted in more Factions I wanted to build and paint, so this Project now also includes Pirates, Conquistadores, Native Warriors based on Inca/Aztec/Maya cultures.
EDIT: And now it will also include Undead!
Captain Luigiano and his army had been travelling through the jungle for weeks now.
The sunlight was blocked by the dense canopy of trees.
Some of the men had contracted fever, and those darn mosquitos were a big nuisance!
He looked at the golden plaque he had obtained.
Gold, with a snakeman made out of gems on it.
With this he had convinced the men to follow him.
Somewhere in this accursed jungle there was a city made of gold, he was sure of it.
They would conquer this city and become rich beyond belief.
He looked at his army, they even had a few cannons.
Nothing would stop them!
Finally they reached a clearance.
The men were pleased, at least they could see the sun again.
They took a rest and a drink, tended to the sick.
Suddenly they heard a loud roar from the other side of the clearing.
Birds flew away, trees where falling!
Some poison darts flew and two soldiers fell, they died before they hit the ground.
A loud roar and an enormous terrifying Lizard appeared.
One soldier died out of fear from just looking at it.
Then the Reptilian Horde emerged from the Jungle.
I've got a dozen tiny minis to BUG you with today!
A few months ago I purchased these Hell Wasp prints for use as giant flies in Rangers of Shadow Deep. The sculpts are from Rocket Pig Games and carefully printed at this delicate scale by K2C2 Creations. The tiny size came in a set of 12 so I painted them all a little different to get some variety.
My original purpose for these guys was as flies in ROSD. To give them some stability and variety I based them on 20mm bases. In each set of 3, one got based standing, one got based leaning, and a third was placed on higher ground. This seemed to break up uniformity. I also painted to different styles of flies.
The first was the House Fly
These guys are mostly grey with a bit of brown fuzz on their backs.
More photos beneath spoiler:
The second set of flies was painted as Blow Flies
These guys are a bit more green. Though having recently had an infestation of these guys, I wish I had made them more metallic. Yuck.
More photo below:
Since I had so many of these guys, I decided to mix up the second half.
One set got painted Red to work as Red Paper Wasps, or as decent Stirge stand-ins.
I quite enjoy the little skull on the one base.

And the final group got painted in classic Yellow Jacket stripes.
Bees? BEES! Ready for a deadly stinging encounter.

These guys were tiny and fragile and tedious. I kept them simple to get through them all and they still used up all my painting time for a month. Lost a few limbs while basing but hopefully the slightly larger bases will give me something easier to grab during games. I wish I had stood back more while working on these and upped the contrast. They're fine, but their details are so small that it would have been more worthwhile to get a stronger impact from arm's length.
What use would you have for these little critters?
Of the many busts I’ve printed/purchased lately, this one won out on the priority list.
Basecoats and metallics are a mix of acrylics (Reaper and Vallejo) and then a ton of layered oils with some subsequent acrylic highlights again. Painted the eyes very faintly and then “washed them out” to give them that milky look but I feel I went too far as the iris/pupils are pretty much gone. Otherwise, I’m quite happy with him other than the missed support nubs inside his “crown” that will taunt me forever.
Thanks for looking.
Chrysoprasia aka Crazy Chrissie.
Named for the Dr & Quinch character, going to be my alchemist in an upcoming horror game.
The colour scheme was inspired by the elven tribes in the new Pathfinder expansion, Mwangi Expanse.
The model was a 3d print, but all paints are Reaper. My first time ever both painting dark skin tones and using a wet palette. Overall quite happy with the result.
My 8 year old son painted these shortly after his birthday last spring. I actually liked his colors and the pattern on the Carnotaurus. Mostly I was over joyed that he didn’t glob the paint on for once. A few weeks ago I decided to paint the eyes, teeth, claws, and base for him. Them a coat of sealer. I think they look great for the toy box. Here are my crappy before and after.
