Haha the idea to use the squig for a head is inspired

Exactly. What else would you expect from a Dark Crystal-themed army? "Essence... drain her essence..." :)

Re: The month of Marsh- season of Mists and mist monsters!

So many cool conversions and paintjobs in this thread! I had an idea for a marsh project to carry out during this month but I haven't had the time for it, so it'll have to wait for next year.

However, I have found some of the first terrain pieces I made in the late '90s, namely two little marsh/swamp/bog pieces. They were pretty simple to make: Just a few kidney-shaped pieces of thick, corrugated cardboard covered in plaster or filler. I can even remember roughly how they were painted: The ground was painted with Dark Angels Green and drybrushed with Camo Green. The wet area was painted with a layer of Regal Blue which was then covered with a mix of Dark Angels Green and Gloss Varnish (no worries about using Citadel paints for terrain projects back then :roll: )

I also added a few roots to look like dead trees or bushes, but they have pretty much broken off now. If I make some more swamps some day, I might make a few adjustments to these old ones to make them fit together.

Now that's just showing off! . . . Which is, I guess, why we're here. ;-) Love it, Fimm! I assume that's supposed to be a reference to some place with young boys who don't eat their supper and prefer going on rumpus? Gorgeous.

This may be the end of what I can get done for the Month of Marsh... but we'll see. Maybe one last push still to come! ;)

At the coo's tail as usual I've managed to finish my contribution at last.

I decided to go for a relative of the Firmir, the salt marsh dwelling community. Mine is an Alternative Armies Fomorian Sea Demon with a Dark Eldar weapon head as his was broken off when I got him. I decided on the blue theme as I see him as being from the sea land margins of the salt marsh.

Re: The month of Marsh- season of Mists and mist monsters!

Hi All,

Hope this fits here! I painted my only, lonesome Fimir a few months ago so I tried to make progress on my undead and frog-folk for the month of Marsh. It seems like all of these guys might be found lurking around the swamps, and it's a mix of old and new minis, probably about 50% Oldhammer-ish, and about 50% complete. I really hoped I'd finish the frogs this month, because it's Marsh and also because I've slightly hated painting the Reaper Bones (while the Otherworld lesser boglings have been a lot more fun), but seemed to make a lot more progress on the undead - kind of my comfort zone I guess.

Nice to see the Month of Marsh projects come together.

Inchmurrin: Cool conversion on the spear there, the point and barb hook design works nicely for the maritime theme.
UrchinJoe: Sterling effort getting a whole batch done. Those frog ranges are blending well, looking cool there.
