B is for…


Whilst working on my Frostgrave warband, I also had this burly froggy chap on my painting tile:

A Bullywug thug, who as well as menacing adventurers in D&D will also be a thug in my starting Frostgrave band. I hadn’t originally planned to use him when setting out the minis to paint, but one of my initially selected minis in hindsight isn’t really dressed for exploring a frozen city, and looked a bit out of place next to the rest, whereas this muscular frog chap looks just like the sort of hired muscle that might sign up with an unscrupulous Necromancer!

He’s a chunky little mini, and in hindsight I wish I’d taken a picture of him next to an average human mini so you can see that he’s taller and broader than his chums are going to be. Looking at these pictures. I wonder if I should have done something else with his armour, but perfect is the enemy of done as they say. Tried to copy the pupil style featured in official art too, which actually came out looking vaguely how I wanted, which was a pleasant surprise. 

With his completion, the Tally now stands at :

3 vs 0 = +3 

(Mostly because I’ve been holding fire on spending Christmas money on new toys, despite watching YouTube videos to broaden my knowledge of Napoleonic war gaming to prepare myself for the Silver Bayonet leaving me with the urge to buy several hundred Perry Miniatures that I’ll never finish painting)

  1. Lovely work on the Bullywug!

    Its a really characterful figure with loads of personality and looks suitably thuggish!

  2. Great looking figure, the painting looks excellent, and has great skin tones.

  3. The skin tones are superb, he really has a froggy look.

  4. Bullywugs are great dnd badguys. Really like the sculpt and paintjob

  5. Haha, didn't know of the mini, I love it! I think you nailed it, the armour looks absolutely convincing, it's quite an adversary!!

  6. Fab work. Will have to look up this mini as I like the style of his armor.
