miniatures advice? hunting for a giant troll/frog monster

Post by spiralingcadaver » Thu Jan 26, 2017 6:59 pm

So, I'm looking for some sort of swamp/jumping/frog monster to replace this guy, which I don't like, with something that's hopefully on the fantasy/horror side, but not so... dumb.

It doesn't need to fill it out, but it's going on a 100mm base, so ogre-sized probably won't fit very impressively.

Any ideas? Currently the best I've come up with is the new chubby orc wyvern, but that's not really ideal and a bit pricey.

Try reaper miniatures. They have a figure finder and are reasonably priced.

These are all Forgeworld. Depending on your definition of "pricey," they might all be too expensive. Obviously, some would need to be made to look "swampy" with appropriate paint jobs...

Thanks, both of you-- Reaper has some nice minis for good prices, but their large minis haven't struck a chord yet, since most of their range is on the ogre size and smaller except like 20 dragons. FW and Mierce both have some large beasts with nice details, but they're just so darn expensive. I really like the merwyrm and basilisk, but they're a bit removed, and the squig and spiked beast are both right in feel, but IMHO overpriced for being some fairly simple models.

I like the basilisk the most.
The spiked beast... I think they're charging you for the amount of resin, rather than the sculpt.

Ooh! I like that one's look a lot, and the price is certainly right. Do you happen to have it? I couldn't get a sense of scale, but it looks right.

I do not have it, but my local game store does. Here is another picture, with what appears to be 30mm based warriors for scale:

Cool, saw that pic, but I didn't know the scale (though 30mm is certainly likely, now that you mention it... looks like maybe an 80mm or so base?

If I can find one not online, there's a very good chance that's what I'll use, thanks.

Why do I suddenly feel like I need a unit of medieval Rough Riders on Fire Frog-Lizards for the IG army that I don't have, never have had and never will have? LOL
