I painted those bullywugs and that Slaad (as a stand-in for a troglodyte mystic) but mine don't look nearly as good! Great job to you and your offspring!

A little update for the end of the summer. We have been painting, but between school restarting, two ongoing campaigns, and football season our productivity has slowed even further. Enough excuses - on to the figures!

First up is a really cool Minotaur my son Stevie painted:

Next, is a chaos thug Stevie speed painted one evening. His painting style really suits these chaos style figures:

Friend of mine gave me a few figures from a miniature skirmish game. I painted this one up as a troglodyte:

This wraith is from the early 90s and completes a group of GW old school metal wraiths. The color choice is a little odd, but I painted each of these with a different colored cloak to keep track of them in rpg combats easier.

You know my saying, 'when in doubt about what to paint - paint a skaven.'

Finally, a few old school goblins. First some plastic night goblins:

I have been using instagram to share and browse mini painting pics - not sure if anyone else is on there for that.

Honestly, I think that is the top way miniature painters share their work these days. I find it to be a bit too fiddly for me - I tried it for a while and did not enjoy it. I have not been on insta for a few months. Definitely where the top painters are though.

I didn't know they had skinks on square bases!
They don't. We play mostly old school rank and file games. We've found round bases do not work great for those, but we can get by with square bases when we do play skirmish games. I still have a lot of square bases and we do 3d print bases as well.

I like how round bases look - so I use them a fair amount, especially for D&D monsters. My boys, on the other hand, almost exclusively prefer square bases. They are old souls when it comes to minis.

I can see that. The square bases were super useful when you were moving blocks of troops around.
