Buff Frogs

The erstwhile albino frogs (and their blue-coated officers) have been dipped and are starting to look rather better (phew!).  They need some highlighting, packs and a few details, like rank chevrons on their sleeves, and then they'll be done, which is just as well as they took at least twice as long as I'd hoped.  And worse, I've decided I need to paint a dozen more to make 2 units of 24.

However, they have been so slow that they have been "bumped" from the painting queue, because I need to finish some Romans for Greg's "Big Parade" challenge; I want to deploy my complete Early Imperial Roman Legion, for the first time.


  1. I think that my parade will be the worse one. I've made the pictures, bt the re not ver good and I cant imagine mself deploing those minies again... Whatever, my parade is dedicated to you as you'll find out... Now I can't wait to see all those romans... are ou making an "arc de triomphe" ?

  2. Sounds intriguing, Greg.

    I've always wanted a big Roman arch, also a large city gate. I won't have time to do an arch; maybe a few tents, though. So it's Bastille day? I always felt sorry for those poor Swiss guards.
