Chris's Frostgrave & Ghost Archipelago Terrain Efforts

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

      Made up these market stalls and goods from Mantic Terrain Crate range. There were the well documented problems with the spindly supports to the stalls being completely bent. Hot water didn't fix the bigger stall so I had to stick additional supports on to it as a frame, made from matchsticks and mdf sprues.
       
      Enjoyable painting up the tiny goods on display though and overall would still recommend product. Would be interesting to see something like it in Bones.

      Hello all! Here are a few pics of my second official terrain project. It's a castle/boss chamber, I suppose. I didn't really have anything in mind when I started building it; I was just fooling around with my new molds, tinkering with dry stacking. This eventually emerged.
       
      I built it using Hirst Arts molds and bits from both Reaper and Mini Monsters. The Reaper parts are Large Sarcophagus (77540) and parts from Magic Treasures II and III. I made the flags from salad container plastic and various bits; one of these days I would like to go back and paint more detailed flags and replace these. I see so much amazing freehand banner work and I have artist envy...!
       
      Happy painting,
       
      Laura

      This is a test piece for some ruins I'm printing and assembling.  I may have gone a bit overboard on the vines.
