    My Frostgrave Chronomancer Warband

    This weekend I finished up my Chronomancer warband for Frostgrave. I've been working on this off and on since last October, and finally finished painting the last figure on Friday. I wanted to assemble a band that looked like they had been brought together from throughout time; or had been to different time periods, and brought back souvenirs. I did some customization to a few of the figures to get that Frostgrave-meets-other-time periods look I wanted. I'm very happy with how this group turned out, and I'm looking forward to get a chance to use them in a game! First up is the Chronomancer and Apprentice. These are both modified Reaper Bones figures. Next is the party's Templar, "Crossbowman", and Man-at-Arms. The Templar is made up mainly of GW Space Marine parts, the "Crossbowman" is a plastic French soldier (unsure of manufacturer), and the Roman is from Foundry. Note, that the Foundry figure was so short compared to the other figures in the warband, I had to base him up on a sheet of cork to make the size difference less noticeable. We then have a Thief, and two Thugs. The Thief is a Reaper metal Ninja figure, and the two Thugs are from the North Star plastic Frostgrave soldier set with the additions of different heads. Lastly, we have the group's War-Hound. This figure is from Eureka, and is just filling in as a proxy (probably; unless I end up liking him as part of the group too much ) until I get the guard dog figure from the Reaper Bones III Kickstarter this Fall. And here's a look at the whole gang together:
  2. So, I've got my thaumaturge warband that I'm completely sculpting, but that's going to take a while, so I assembled a second warband to start playing sooner. I decided to go chronomancer with the idea that he and his apprentice travel through time and space recruiting members for the band. I went with the Bones versions of Andre Durand and Nightslip for the wizard and apprentice. I'll be removing his gun hand and making it something different, though I'm still a bit up in the air as to what. For her, I'll be making one of her holsters a belt pouch and the other a sheathed dagger. Her guns hands will be replaced by one hand posed as if casting a spell and the other holding an hourglass (because it's a chronomancer symbol, so I figure it works as her casting focus and he is sculpted with a pocket watch). I have started the painting on the knight and treasure hunter. The blue toned outfits will be a unifying theme for the band. I'm hoping to get some painting time in this weekend. If not, we have spring break coming up week after next, so I should have plenty of time then. As a side note, big thanks to Chris for spending time chatting about Frostgrave and warbands to help me get ideas going and fleshing out concepts. It's a big help to have a "voice of experience" to help guide me through my gaming/terrain/etc. questions :=) Comments, critiques, suggestions, thoughts, etc. always welcome.
  3. I recently completed painting the Elquin, High Elf Adventurer figure from the Bones I Kickstarter. I wanted to use him as my Chronomancer wizard for my Frostgrave games, as I felt his outfit was vaguely reminiscent of a French Napoleonic uniform, and would be fitting for a time-traveling wizard. Some of you may remember I recently posted my Sascha Dubois figure, which I had painted as the Chronomancer's Apprentice http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/65273-sascha-dubois-chronomancers-apprentice-conversion-80004/?hl=%2Bsascha+%2Bdubois because of her vaguely 18th century looking outfit. I modified the figure, to help bring across the Chronomancer look, by adding a small disc punched from thin cardboard to the top of his staff to make it resemble a sundial. IMG_5674 by cnjpalmer I painted him for tabletop use, so took some shortcuts. I'm pleased with the results, though I wish I had taken the time to get his eyes focused where his hand is pointing, and not glancing off to the side. I was just so thrilled to get them relatively level and even, and both looking in he same direction, that I didn't want to mess with them further. Here's the finished result: IMG_5887 by cnjpalmer And here is the Chronomancer and his Apprentice: IMG_5900 by cnjpalmer
  4. This past weekend, I completed the Sascha Dubois figure that I have been posting about in the Work in Progress forum: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/65049-sascha-dubois-chronomancers-apprentice-conversion/ For those who haven't read that thread, my goal was to convert this futurisitc Science Fiction figure into a fantasy magic-user type to serve as my Chronomancer's Apprentice for my Frostgrave games. While not the greatest paint job, it is one of the best I've done for a figure destined to be a game piece, and not one for display.

  5. When I recently looked at the Sascha Dubois figure I got in my Bones I Kickstarter I really liked the look of her coat, and it reminded me very much of an 18th century officer's coat. This made me think of the Elquin High Elf Adventurer figure I had painted a little while ago, which I painted as wearing a 19th century uniform and overcoat. I intend at some point to get another Elquin and paint him again, this time with a snow base, as a Chronomancer for my Frostgrave games, and it seemed to me that Sascha in her coat from the 1700s might be perfect to be the Chronomancer's apprentice. The idea of them traveling in time, and picking up articles of clothing from different eras, really appeals to me. While I liked the blend of the old fashioned coat and the futuristic bit and bobs on her outfit, I thought the laser pistol at her side might be too much. This, combined with the fact I wanted to include something that might tie her to a medieval-like fantasy world a little more, gave me the idea to replace the pistol with a sword. So, I set about doing the conversion. I found a suitable donor among my extra figures, and then cut off one of its swords (It was wielding two), and trimmed away the hand that was on its hilt. I then cut the sword into three sections, as I wanted it to fit in the crease between Sascha's outer thigh and her coat where her pistol had been, and I wanted the tip to stick out under the back bottom of the coat. I also trimmed part of the hilt's cross-guard away, so it would fit up against her hand. I then cut away Sascha's pistol at this point; and trimmed off the blocky parts sculpted on the front of her boots, as I felt they made her footwear look too modern. Lastly, I trimmed the communicator in her hand to attempt to make it look more like a pocket watch. I then superglued the parts of the sword in place. This left me with a gap between the sword and her coat and thigh, and her hand and the cross-guard. So I used some Milliput I had on hand and filled the gap between her sword, coat and thigh, and then attempted to resculpt the hand so it looked more like it was resting on the cross-guard of the sword. I'm not a great sculptor, and the close confines of where the hand was located made it difficult to work on, but hopefully it is good enough that paint will hide a multitude of sins. And, it is intended as a gaming piece, not a display figure so I think I can let some rough bits slide. So, now I will let it sit for a little bit so everything is good and dry, then I will do some final trimming and filing to get everything shipshape. I'm not sure what color I will paint her coat at this point; British scarlet? Russian green? Austrian White? I'll have to do some thinking.
