I almost croaked...

Look who I found, puttering about in the back yard:

Nah, I'm just kidding, he came from the paint table:

 It's my first painted toad from Toad King Castings' Warts and Wings Kickstarter. This one is the Giant Toad that was formerly sold under the Tengu Models range.

Do you know how, every once in a while, you get a miniature where every just clicks and goes smoothly? Well, this is one for me. It must have been the beautiful sculpt and the impeccable casting, but everything just seemed to go right with this model: Paint flowed on almost by itself, every tone or shade I tried turned out just the way I imagined it. Perfectly joyous, blissful painting.... wonderful. :D

Thanks you again to Toad King Castings for making this wonderful piece of resin! I can't wait to get his mates painted.

See you next time!

    Thank you, I'm still a bit surprised at just how well he turned out myself. Everything seemed to go just right when painting.

  3. That is just superb! What an amazing paint job.

  4. I was more than almost fooled by the first pic. Great work, there!

    1. Thank you Joakim!
      I presented it to my son as if I had just caught a real toad, and he was more than almost fooled as well... :) He took the prank in good humour.
