Earlier this month, I released my hold at Miniature Market in anticipation of my BoxThrone shelves coming in. In that order was #Cosmic Frog, a game I was introduced to by the So Very Wrong About Games podcast. I played it with a friend on TTS once and knew immediately that Sarah would hate it, but I had to pick it up anyway. And of course, now that it's here, I really wanted to paint the frog minis.
This is what they look like out of the box, and how they looked just 12 days ago. I know I've mentioned to quite a few of you that I was getting this game, so I'll try to tag who I can remember talking to about it. @philryuh @nealkfrank @Courageous Bob @nwrex @boardgamegumbo @Hungry Gamer
I did actually plan to buy a bunch of painting supplies and practice on random minis before attempting to paint them myself, but one of my coworkers mentioned how he was getting back into painting minis for Warhammer. After seeing some of his work, and mostly out of laziness lol, I asked if he would paint the frogs for me. Here are the results:
They even look great sitting in the box! Almost like they came with the game that way..
I was particularly impressed with how much the green one actually looked like a frog (not like that's the point of a frog in space..), and of course with purple being my favorite color, I made sure he knew that it had to look good haha.
I'm really happy about how these came out! I showed a few pictures to @KingChaos along the process and now he's thinking about shipping all his minis out to my coworker to paint them too haha. If only @KingChaos prioritized playing his turn on Board Game Arena over his minis...(am I right, @theDL?) :P
Of course, now that I have #Trick Shot, that will be the next project for him to paint. :D
