Dark Maiden as Demonic Frostgrave Construct (14106)

Recommended Posts

Brutal!!!

 

I would run like hell from that!

 

Good job!

 

 

Thank you, Xherman!    :)

 

 

She looks great!

 

 

Thank you, Citrine!

 

 

She turned out amazing!

 

 

Thank you, hiddenone!

 

 

Excellent!  The OSL sets it off, and the swords just look good too.

 

 

Thank you, BLZeebub! Glad to hear you think the OSL turned out so good.

Holy crap I love that!  The green OSL is so subtle yet stunning!

 

 

Thank you, Baldur!  My worry always with OSL is that I'm going to over do it, so glad to hear you think the subtleness works.

Love what you've done here! You took a mini that I always thought was neat, but somewhat impractical and made it make amazing sense!

The swords actually instantly made me think light sabres. Yep, she's a demon boat Jedi. Seriously, though, the OSL is done so well that it does come across as that same idea of light/energy blazing across the blades. Excellent work, good sir!

     Thank you, Pippin!

     I agree that while it is a very cool mini it is mostly an impractical gaming mini.  Only in a bizarre setting such as Frostgrave could I have conceived of there being a masthead of an ancient derelict ship still magically moving around the old city under some long-gone Enchanter's Enchant Construct spell.   Or there being some Demon trapped in an ancient masthead; torn free of the derelict ship it was bound to, only to float magically across the ruined waterfront seeking vengeance on anyone it finds.

 

    And now that you pointed it out to me, I have to say I agree that the swords bear a strong resemblance to light sabers...not that that's a bad thing. :)

Oh my, that looks amazing and nightmare-inducing. The green lighting looks good and convincing (and the anchor and chain look good and rusty)!

That ROCKS!!!

 

Nice work.

 

Thank you, Chaoswolf!

Thank you, Pingo!  I especially appreciate the kind words regarding the anchor.  Though it's hidden around back, and not as flashy as the OSL, I think the aged rusty look turned out really well on it.

 

 

 

Very nice!

 

 

Thank you, ub3r!

I dont know where to begin really.. The first pleasant surprise was the skillful OSL that was not too much or too subtle to be noticed. Then I was again hit by the realistic coloring of the old-wood look of the figurehead.. Finally the anchor with its perfect rust effect was the final hit needed to blow me away.

 

This is a great composition. Well thought out and tediously worked to perfection. I love it. Two thumbs up!

      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!

      This is Reaper 03042, the second version of Morrdha, Vampire Noble, sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.
       
      I don't know what his story is, but both versions are casting something from a book of Up to No Good, and both have a little demon thing lurking at their feet.
       
      I loved the lively cape on this figure, and the melodrama. I decided to paint him ginger and make his armor look appallingly rusty.
       
      Oh, right, and while I did not exactly do NMM or anything, I did paint his sword with pigmented colors instead of my usual sloshing on of metallic silver.
       
      There is no WIP thread, but I would be happy to answer questions. Comments and critiques are also welcome.

      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.

      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.

      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.
