Chris's Frostgrave & Ghost Archipelago Terrain Efforts

Recommended Posts

You had me excited for a moment, there... "Urrr? Someone sells 28mm Elsa?" ... and then I realized it was much too big. Makes a fine statue, though!

Actually Dr Bedlam, someone does make a 28mm Not-Elsa.  Check Brigade Games in their Frostgrave section; under the "Frostgrave Stand-Ins" tab, look for the Young Fire Elementalists  set.  They are exact Anna and Elsa look-alikes.

 

Also, there is a brand of chocolate covered egg that comes with Frozen toy figures novelties with them.  I got some at local supermarket over Christmas, then found more on Ebay.  Below is a picture of them with their original box, and with a Reaper figure for scale comparison.  Not, pictured, but also available is Olaf and Sven.

I also picked up a Funko "Marshmallow" figure (The big snow-monster from the movie) off of eBay to go with them. :)

Thanks, Chaoswolf.
My wife is visiting a friend today, so I have the day to myself to work on the ships. I'm starting with the smaller ones as a learning and experimenting opportunity before I attack the big model.
Got both small ship halves painted, but have yet to do the winterizing. I should be able to do that this afternoon.

This week I finished up the derelict ships for my Frostgrave Harbor project. I'm pleased with how these came out.

I also whipped up a quick hole-in-the-ice, from a piece of fluorescent light cover.  Perfect for pushing your enemies into!

Those look great. So far I haven't located anyone within 1+ hour playing. I'd also have to transport all my terrain which I'm leery of with complete strangers. It all adds up to kill my motivation to work on anything.

Sorry to hear about your situation, lexomatic. You could try going over to The Miniatures Page and putting out a call for gamers in the Toronto area. Are there no gaming stores in your area?

Sure there are gaming stores there but people play other things. I checked a scanned local wargamer meet-up with no luck. I found out about people 1hour away through a facebook group. Still probably easier to try to convince friends.

Anyways back to terrain...

The shipwrecks turned out very nicely, great job!

The hole in the ice is (pardon me) very cool.

You could check with your local LGS, find a good day to bring your absolutely brilliant terrain, and set up a demo - you never know who might go wandering by going, "oooh what are you playing?!" or "OMG FROSTGRAVE!? I WANT TO PLAY!!"

 

Just cuz, you know, it happens. ;) (I'm not the only one who's done that right? right?!)

 

Anyway, sorry OT, those boats are one of the best things I've seen omg sooooooo cool!! can't believe I missed this thread. What a great idea and lovely execution as well!

Thanks for the comments, everybody!  I'm glad you all like the way this is turning out.

 

I've had some time yesterday to start working on the waterfront itself.  It's going to be 3 feet long, and made up from three 1' sections for ease of storage.  The substructure is pink foam board, and the outer walls are the same cork tiles I've been using to construct my buildings.  For the paved surface I'm using a couple of the cobblestone roads that Walmart sells with their Christmas village accessories.

I worked some more on the docks the past two days. Got all four sections built, and base-coated them with black

      About this project
      The Story
      Hello again from Munchkin Metropolis!  This time around I'm targeting all of you Roleplay Gamers!  With my DIY Dungeon Kit you can now take your game nights to a whole new level.  Being able to customize your dungeons into the format you want makes being a game master so much more fun!  Below you'll see the Base Set that includes the 4 most popular sets, plus the Stretch Goal Furniture Set.  The miniatures pictured are not included in your reward (I just wanted to show how I personally utilize this setup)...Other than that, the picture is exactly what you'll receive. 
      Too Much Information
      I've recently been to the Doc and have been placed on a very strict diet and workout regimen (Working out isn't that strict, it's just 30min of light cardio daily).  But he told me not to do anything overly physical, which for a woodworker means I can't really work.  So, to save my heart and keep my business afloat, I've chosen a campaign that utilizes the laser for 80% of the work...with the remaining 20% being light physical duty.
      Due to the sheer weight of these items, I've worked to minimize the cost on materials and labor as much as possible.   The base set weighs almost 15lb and will ship in a 12x12x6 corrugated box.  Making each set is 8 hours of laser time and about 2 hours physical labor (Which is why I set the delivery date 2 months out instead of 1...but for you early backers, expect me to start shipping rewards within a week of the campaign ending.)  Mostly, I wanted to GUARANTEE delivery before Christmas.  By setting it to October, I will have plenty of time to handle anything that comes up. 
      The base set already includes the 4 most popular Expansions and will make an AWESOME Christmas Gift!  
      The floor pieces are designed so that you can expand into infinity to make those LARGE scale battle zones.  
      You'll choose either 1 or 2 inch per expansion. Each Wall Expansion is designed to be as versatile as your campaign!  
      A Base Set ready to ship (The Furniture Set is in the bag)

      This is ending in 50 hours... Haven't seen it posted. There's a thread from 2015 for other tiles. I'm intrigued by the digital option.
