Time for another piece from the archive... a giant toad! This was from Eastern Front Studios.
The base is a wooden plaque that is probably 6 inches across.
I think this is one of the first things I ever painted using my book of reptiles, amphibians and bugs as reference. Eventually I would use it as a guide for all of my Lizardman army.
Since this was so huge, it let me choose a much more complicated pattern, which was fun! You get a good look at that here.
I made the rocks, lilipads, etc., from sculpey. Once that was baked and painted, I glued it to the wooden plaque.
My, what big teeth you have!
Close up of the base. I painted several transparent layers on the 'water' part, using some gloss varnish in between each one. This was faster and easier than trying to do it all with one of those water effects products.
