Flintloque Toad Trooper
Manufacturer: Alternative Armies
Jason Moses purchased a pack of toads and gave one each to myself, Tom Schadle and Joel Patton to commemerate our time together during Games Day Baltimore and Origins.
I tried doing a fancier base for him, and used very natural tones (and normal metallics). I went for a fairly standard era blue, white and red uniform. The toad's skin is military green highlighted with Russian winter green.
The model was glued onto a standard round base, and I glued some rocks around his metal base to give the impression of a river bank. The cat tails were fun to make, they are just wire with some putty on the end (though a bit too big - hey, they're mutated cat tails!). The water has just been the bare base paitned blue with several coats of gloss on top of it.The paint job isn't spectacular, but this is still one of the favourite models in my collection.
