They look great! And I think that ruined building would be perfect for Frostgrave.

 

One thing though, I believe maximum warband size is 10 standard figures, and I see 11 pictured. Is one an extra spell-effect figure?

Thanks!

 

Beeker (Guy with the tuft of red hair) is an extra, but when it came time to paint up the thugs, I needed 4, and there were 5 in the pack, soooo......

 

I was a little worried about all the metal beams and such making it look out of time / place....

 

Guess I will need to build more!

We never worry about a little futuristic anachronism creeping in.  In a world of magic, especially one where Chronomancy is a legitimate practice, who knows what oddity from the future may work its way into the local architecture.

They look great all together like that; very nice unified look you accomplished with them. Two thumbs up!!

 

And, yes those 40k ruins work fairly well as fantasy ruins, too. I believe some of those kits look a whole lot more 'techy' than some of the others; maybe avoid or minimize using them.

I will have to look through the sprues and see what will work best for Frostgrave...

There are a lot of sprues...

Very Cool!  Thanks... that helps bring a lot of perspective to your different WIPs!

Ahh... terrain... I've got to wrap my head around how I want to do some of the ruins...

Very nice, they blend together well enough to look like a band, but are varied enough to be able to differentiate them easily. And the terrain works great - I didn't even notice the metal beams until you pointed it out. I suppose you could convert them to wooden beams if you were really strongly inclined. But the skulls, cold stone, gothic arches and spiky railings are what drew my eye, and they fit the theme really well.

      A really quick and dirty set of scenery using mantics library mini crate.  All told I have maybe 2 hours into the set.  I think it came out pretty well.  I wanted to see what these looked like and the could double for additional scenery on my Saga game.
       
      Air brushes brown primer, followed by a drybrush of woodland brown and then a bunch of colors for the actual books 
       
      Hope you like what you see...

      I Don't have much to go on with this dragon.  its another one that has been sitting half finished on my shelf forever.  the bottom has some script on the bottom that looks like FWS and an 8.  other than that I don't have any clue where it comes from. 
       
      but I finally dusted the mini off, freshened up the red (It was becoming a pink dragon) and decided to display it here.  hope everyone enjoys!

      What else to finish off the month of January but another dragon from my shelf of shame?  This is Ollie.  Ollie is from Impact miniatures and is supposed to be a mascot for one of the bloodbowl teams.  Tom Acquired the license to produce him and I got a copy.  I used him to test a number of different red effects and styles while working on another, bigger dragon.  The skills may not have panned out like I wanted but Ollie still came out pretty well and deserved to be finished and shown off.  Pictures are still with a phone camera but at least I got to my light box!  So without further ado:

      I needed some drow type critters done up in case my group manages to skip ahead in our current campaign and go straight underground. I also wanted to clear a few more bones minis off my shelf to free up more room in anticipation of bones 4. I know these aren't all dark elves, or even elves, but they all seemed to kind of go together when I put them on the work bench. So three very rapid paint jobs later and I'm ready to do a little underdark-ish campaigning if the group gets there before all the stuff in the darkreach expansion gets to me.

      Every once in a while I get the hankering to do some Nolzur's Marvellous Miniatures. I like the monsters and have bought a few, but I can't stand the itty bitty truscale of the humans though -they are simply too small for my tastes, the shallow details disappearing beneath the oft-to thick primer.
      Here are Xorn, the three-legged three-eyed earth elemental with a massive maw! There are two to a pack, and I think they are supposed to represent a low-level and a high-level version. However, they are the exactly the same size, so who can tell the difference in power level?
      I stuck them on 32mm bases, as they fit well.
      They come pre-primed, so I painted them by sloshing on some thin greenish grey, followed by drybrushing with sandy yellow and some bone white. I put some old citadel imperial purple in the maw, and slathered the things in dark tone quickshade ink. Well. maybe not slathered. I made sure to draw off most pooling before they dried up leaving those horrible tide marks.
      I did the teeth and claws in bone white, and the eyes with several shades of blue with a white centre and some gloss varnish. Not really happy with the eyes, so I might revisit them at some point.
       

      These also are good as some sort of Cthuloid entities or chaotic daemonspawn somethings for Conan to send back to the Abyss!
