  1. I thought I would start my own Frostgrave terrain thread, since I started on my second ruin this week, and don't see my self stopping anytime soon. And, I didn't want to keep posting links in David's excellent Frostgrave terrain thread found here, http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/65272-frostgrave-terrain/ , and detract from his efforts. For those that missed it, I already posted my first ruin here in the Frostgrave thread in the Fantasy sub-forum: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/63635-frostgrave/?p=1252554 This week, I thought I'd take things to another level and try my hand at a two-story ruin... Two improvements I wanted to try this week were to add more debris on to the base; and to mount the building on a squared base to help it feel more like an urban building. The main structure is made from cork tiles, and the extra details are made with balsa and bass wood. IMG_5605 by cnjpalmer IMG_5606 by cnjpalmer

    Gnollblins!

    @malefactus sent me some old Games Workshop plastic night goblins, and instead of putting them together properly I decided to stick the heads on the bodies of some Frostgrave plastic gnolls. There's another one but he's badly unbalanced (in more ways than one) and keeps falling over.
  3. Here are some of the finished crew I have been posting in the WIP thread. I also made some islands, just using MDF, pink foam, and gloss mod podge for a basic water effect. The figures are a mix of Bad Squiddo and Wargames Foundry. I have an eye on a few Reaper figures for wardens and Heritors. I am trying to make more of an effort with basing. Have been making a mix of shoreline bases, sand, planks, then jungle/green bases. Will then mix those up on a few models.
  4. My wizard Malak and his apprentice Grubb for my Frostgrave team. The wizard is Xi-Han is from GCT's Bushido game and then his apprentice is Lunk. This guy came with a bigger mini that is supposed to be a mutated him that I'll need to paint some other time. Fairly happy with the hat and mushrooms and frog. should have doen something more for his mustache though. It looks ok in person at least. Not super happy with my snow base results this time. Grubb here might see action as his alter ego Lunk from time to time so his base is just a stone base. Most of their crew is done as well. I'll get a group shot when they are all done. (Including the replacements for my lone casualty in our first real game.)
  5. Managed to do more painting today. The assassin is by North Star. I was aiming for a lighter palette, rather than a ninja. I think I need to go back in and highlight more. The knight is mainly fireforge, templar body, cloak, and scandi infantry head. The arms are from the Oathmark elves set though. They are just based on 25mm washers and will add some texture, foam rocks, and snow effects to both bases once grey base coat has dried. It takes ages to get a consistent coat on the washers and that and the hole in the middle are the only downsides to using them.
  6. Have started off Lanura and Andowyn, painting them as a duo for Frostgrave or GA. So heritor and warden or wizard and apprentice. Lots of the ideas for the colour scheme come from this board/online. Vallejo flat green coats, french blue trousers, grey brown gloves and boots, and saddle brown skin tone. Also did some simple frostgrave treasure tokens. Those are just resin bases with Frostgrave and Fireforge spare parts stuck to them. I went for relatively bright colours around the rims and for details to make clear that these are counters and not terrain.
  7. Have got some Frostgrave explorers and some GA crew with a middle eastern focus. Am getting better at kit bashing but these are the first mixed conversions using resin, metal, plastic and greenstuff. The Arabians are Gripping Beast middle eastern infantry and steppes infantry with Frostgrave GA crew arms. The explorers are Fireforge resin bodies, frostgrave or westwind pict heads and a mix of arms. C and C welcome.

    Kev!'s Frostgrave Soldier

    Howdy, Mostly Reaper this week, but here is the odd man out... Kev! P.S. Look! There they are... what did I tell you?
  9. Mainly because a user asked me who made a particular miniature and I can't reload the message to answer it. These are the winter or frost versions of the adventurers in the latest Hasslefree Pin Up kickstarter. The bard (blond, cloak, staff) is called "winter erryn" by Hasslefree. I have asked on the "bones you would like to see" thread for wintery/frostgrave style Bones figures.
  10. Have put together some rough ground by sticking some resin basing bits from Scibor ("elven ruins") with foam off cuts and rocks from other models. Then just started painting the whole thing as basically a rockery. The idea is to add a bit of snow effect, and some lichen etc or trees when it is on the table. I have then started on a set of ruined buildings for Frostgrave. These are just foam pieces rolled with a green stuff world roller and stuck onto a wooden orange box left over from Christmas. As I shop at over priced supermarkets this was made out of some quite serviceable MDF/wood. It had holes cut into it already which I tried to use in the terrain. Am using balsa to stick ledges onto the inside and balsa floorboards on top. Will add more grime and then some snow effect. Will also think about using some water effects in the well/drain. Then, I made some little notice boards (as am a fan of Witcher 3) and my wife made some posters for them.
  11. Howdy, I'm getting something... Kev! P.S. Sooth, I say!
  12. I put together this Barrow from xps foam and a decopage cardboard treasure chest lid. I used a greenstuff world roller to texture the doorway and landing outside. It is all stuck together with super glue. I was keen to make sure that there were flat areas for based minis in the front and at the rear. My minor mistake was making the rear plinth/hill a bit too narrow after sticking on the rear wall section, hence cutting out a slit. When all the glue has dried I will prime it with a mix of mod podge and black paint. Then I will flock the top. I need to decide whether to make this snowy or green. I think that snow will cover more model making sins...
  13. Howdy, Yet another Frosrtgrave Apprentice... Elementally my dear Watson, Kev! P.S. Ala Kazam!
  14. Howdy, Another Frostgrave Apprentice... Still learning, Kev! P.S. Ever been turned into a toad?
  15. Howdy, I've had these since "Into the Breeding Pits" came out... Forsooth, Kev! P.S. Abracadabra!

    Frostgrave cultist thief

    I need to get onto some Reaper figures I think but in the meantime here is a thief from North Star for Frostgrave. Black gloves and boots, London Grey cloak, Royal purple accents. Then an Army Painter black/ "dark tone" wash over everything except the skin, which was strong tone. Base is green stuff on a washer, made using the Greenstuff World cobblestone roller. Again once you get the hang of it and follow their videos on YouTube these come out very well and saves me from my usual problem of not doing enough on the bases. Am going to have some open ruins but wanted something with lots of cover, but the risk of becoming a trap.
  17. Painted a North Star Heritor for Ghost Archipelago, "Heritor II". The mini has been nicknamed in the fluff/lore as 'Big Red" so went for red hair. One thing I was happy with was the base. I just used the "Wood" roller from "Greenstuff World" on some green stuff then stuck it to a washer. The wood grain roller doesn't work too well with foam but was ideal here. Then Vallejo have a paint/wash called "Woodgrain" which nicely goes into all the folds creating depth and highlights. Good to have some literal paint names for once!

    02835 Jolie, Frostgrave apprentice

    I have used 02835 (Jolie) as an apprentice Sigilist in my Frostgrave warband. Here she is with an old Citadel wizard, who is her mentor. In my games he is called Bruce and she is named The Lovely Anthea. (Brits of a certain age may spot a cultural reference here.) I get the feeling that Bruce chose his apprentice more for her... nice legs... that her skill in the mystical arts. But in the games I play Bruce frequently fails to cast his spells in a spectacular and messy fashion, while Anthea succeeds by the narrowest of margins!
  19. Have been stealing coffee stirrers for a while and thought I should disguise them. This is a modular set of docks for pirate settings/City docks, ghost archipelago. All I did was make platforms of various heights with layers of foam core board. Then Iaid cross pieces and laid the decks on top, just using different thicknesses of coffee stirrers. The stanchions are just pva glued to the side of the foam core, under the decks rather than showing above them. I painted the foam core black and am painting the wood using the Crafting Muse video on YouTube as a guide. I won't be basing these. The boat is a lucky find. It is a decoupage model ocean liner. I cut the top off and had a curved boat shape 15cm / 6" long and perfect for 8 models. Only £1.25 on sale. All I did was lay a deck of coffee stirrers then took some of the bits I cut off and glued them back on to the sides. Painted like the Dock. I don't want to add seats, mast, similar detail to this model to maximise how many based minis can stand in it.

    Frostgrave Thief

    So having jumped from Frostgrave to D&D in a rather swift way I decided to "normalize" my Frostgrave minis.. namely "less snow, more greens.." So here's the Thief from Frostgrave: Thus I am trying to make better bases but I still some way to go it seems. Thanks for looking and C&C is very welcome.

    Frostgrave Ghouls (or zombies)

    Another batch from the Frostgrave (or Mantic, repacked as Frostgrave) Undead set. I needed some ghouls for my D&D game so painted all as ghouls even though some are supposed to be zombies I think. Similar to the skeletons. very crisp models and great fun to paint. Thanks for looking and C&C is very welcome.
