I decided to get going on my entries for the Frostgrave Triple Sprue Challenge. The idea is to convert the three mainstays of a Frostgrave warband; Wizard, Apprentice, and Captain. You could only use a single sprue each from the Soldiers, Cultists, and Barbarian kits.
First up is Vismar the Obsessed, Wizard
He's never quite been the same since he found that staff made from the remains of a Magister of the Frozen City.
Next is the Apprentice, Cymon.
He's obsessed with that one simple hat trick. It would be more impressive if he summoned the rabbit rather than the Undead.
Up last is Sir Brodes, Captain
A life-long retainer to Vismar, Sir Brodes often regrets his family's pledge to the House of Vismar....much more often since they came to the Frozen City.
I just got into miniature painting and decided to post on the forum to get some feedback and advice. This is only the second miniature I've ever painted. I'm pretty happy with how he turned out despite my lack of experience. I'm thinking of dry brushing his back a bit more for an even more intense frost/ice effect. I plan on varnishing and basing him as soon as the bases I ordered arrived. Any CC is welcome thanks for looking!
Some time ago, during a game of Bolt Action, one of my friends told us about a campaign he was planning, focused on a fantasy setting using the rules of Frostgrave.
As he and some other friends were working on a SciFi setting simultaneously, I thought of the possibility of creating an army that fits both settings – Fantasy and Sci Fi.
But what kind of figures would be able to fit into my setting? Looking around, I got aware of the Blood Vestals by Raging Heroes. They seem to be perfect for my army and so I acquired a group of them and also got me some bases with ruins – currently I don’t have got the time to make them all by myself.
There is only one problem – they are partially clothed …
RATED N for NUDITY
RATED N for NUDITY II RATED N for NUDITY III
So … though a young woman in all her natural beauty might be quite a sight for sore eyes, I figured them to be a bit unfit for my idea. I mean - we are talking about Frostgrave. Frost. Cold. Quite Cold. Who would risk to get a cold by running around naturally dressed? So – best way for me to work with them might be to unnude them.
I looked around a bit further, but couldn't figure a way to make the figures look like I wanted them to look like. To be honest - I don't even have an idea what I want to do. Bravo, Monsieur. You're quite something.
Then by chance, I stumbled over the at concepts of NieR: Automata, which is a sequel to the critically acclaimed game NieR and includes some pretty artwork and figures. I already know the game, especially for the "AB" Diskussion regarding the clothing of main character 2b, but still never really thought about the design. Hm. Not bad.
I somehow like the lolita concept. But it is quite modern, so there should be a change in design to make it more fantasyesque.
Also having been a fan of the Valkyria Chronicles franchise since I came to know it (some 6 years ago or so), I figured that the clothes of Selvaria and Aliasse from the franchise would make a good addition.
Sexy Lolita clothes, white and blue-white hair, red eyes and dark grey and golden colors? I am currently thinking about how to bring all those concepts together – but I am sure that the outcome will be great :-D Haha.
If anyone has an idea on how to put all that stuff together, I'd be thankful :-D
For the skin I took a picture from the internet, which I really liked:
Quite a thought.
I checked my bits box and found a fantasy figure I will use as the central figure for my army – the Crimson Empress or Witch or whatever. She will be the figure on which I test how the colors work together. Looking forward to seeing her finished …
Well then - Let's start and see where this ends.
So I got my cut of Bones 3 from the person I went in with, and decided that the first thing to get done would be Bonehenge....
Started by airbrushing with Grey Liner cut 50%, Then Stynylrex Black, then Stynylrez Grey, cut 50% as a Zenithal....
I then remembered how mad I got at myself for not scraping the mold lines on my DDS 2 terrain, and got busy....
Was pleasantly surprised that only the 2 upright pieces with lintle stones had anything at all noticeable....
Then the Black (Cut 50% this time!) and Grey were redone on those 2 pieces....
Pretty much plan to follow the same paint scheme that I did for my DDS 2....
