Painted Kwaak Slickspine & Gub, Croak Sorcerers

Here are Kwaak Slickspine & Gub, Croak Sorcerers for my Hordes Minions army. They’re a support solo whose main draw is being able to case Enliven twice in a turn (because they’re both Sorcerers, I suppose). In theory I really like this ability, but in practice I have always found that I’m just not experienced enough to make get good value from this small positional change. I feel that in the hands of a competent player this could be the difference between victory and defeat. I also have a bit of tendency to play them too far forward, resulting in their untimely death to all sorts of avoidable threats.

I wanted to keep the painting simple here and stuck with a straightforward green for the frogs. I contrasted that with a nice bright hood; apologies to any readers who are fully red/green colourblind. All in all, a quick and easy paintjob; the perfect palette-cleanser after Horticulous Slimux.

As a bonus, here is a close of up of Gub’s cute little froggy face. At least, I assume that the little one is Gub; I’ve never seen it confirmed anywhere.

Next on the painting table: Orin Midwinter, Rogue Inquisitor.

  1. He’s a cool mini – I think I would be tempted to pick those warts out in a contrasting colour, and maybe use a different shade of green for the little fella? I find the green all just blends together a bit, but still a nice mini 😉

    • Thanks for the advice, that is a great idea. I think I’ll go back and pick out the warts just to liven them up a bit.

      As for the skin colours between Kwaak and Gub, I faced the old dilemma between realism and coolness. I assume that real conjoined twins don’t get different skin / scale / fur colours so I decided to do that there. I do agree that it might have been a bit better visually to use a slightly different shade though.
