And these vicious, yet tasty beasts look a little like this:

I have a grox proxy arriving in the New Year (I hope), from recent the Frills and Fauna Kickstarter by Kraken Games, but a single beast does not a herd make. Luckily, the very excellent Andy Coleman over at Four A Miniatures recently sent me a pack of the lovely cute little lizards from his recent Goblins and Sea Demons Kickstarter. The perfect pack of newly hatched grox for the adults to take care of!
I'm choosing not to dwell on any physiological differences between adult and baby grox. Because they're so cute! I painted these five in about an hour and half with a very simple approach. Essentially it was basecoat > wash > drybrush highlight x3 > pick out details (spikes, teeth, claws, eyes).
For what it's worth, these 5 models are my 8-year old daughter's favourite thing in my model cabinet, particularly the little one scratching his head.
Most importantly, they look rather good when set up in a little enclosure, ready for sale to the highest bidder!

Thanks for sending me a set Andy - really enjoyed painting them up!
