Frogs in Spaaaaaace!

First up are some specialists, from left to right: rocket launcher, sergeant, communications, flame thrower, medic

Next, regular troops, with an officer in the middle

And last but not least, more regular troops and a shaman/psionic mage/priest (the blue guy in the middle with the pole thingamabob - the top part of the psionic device can come off and be replaced by a wooden plaque with a frog emblem which also came with the figures)


I got these Phroggs from RPE (Ral Partha Europe) through kickstarter. They are taller than your average 28mm human figure; around 8 feet tall or so in scale. At the time I backed the project I wasn't sure what I would use them for, but I thought they looked cool. Then recently I also backed a sci-fi game called Battlestations (2nd Ed.) and I wonder if I could work them into that. The sculpts are great, each one is different, with lots of character. Fun to paint!.

  2. I believe that this alien race is called . . . "Ribbits" . . . and they are reputed to have an additional close combat weapon known as tonguing and when they do that, well you have been licked.

  3. Thanks, guys. I thought ribbits were their automatons...

    I don't know what determines how pictures resize when you click on them. I thought I loaded all of them the same, but some open large and some don't, when you click.

  4. I think you are correct, Jeff. They are "ribbits" in their native tongue. Phroggs is a term bestowed on them by outsiders.
