Three monstrous frostgrave band mates

9 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

I'm putting together a monstrous warband for frostgrave and I did a quick paint of these three bones today.


77148: Damien the hell born wizard as my apprentice


77036: medusa as an archer


77198:  barrow rat as a war hound.  This last was a super quick paint as I finished the other two.


Dressed the gorgon/medusa with knife and paint, so she's Sfw.  Still, I'll spoilerize the pics:










i want to include the horned hunter I did as well in this warband.  Still not decided what to use as my wizard and other band mates. I want to try to keep an even gender ratio, but there are very few monstrous women and the few that are out there have a hard time keeping their clothes on.

It looks like the warband is shaping up nicely!  Nifty idea to use the big barrow rat as a warhound.

Looks good.  I'm using Damien as my wizard for Frostgrave right now.  I hope your brings you as much luck as mine has (so far).

I am mostly using bones from previous kickstarters since I have them already.  My "wizard" might be metal though.  


I haven't played with a captain yet.  Would need to review the rules for that.  I've only used the core book for this warband though I think this warband has a beast-crafter feel to it.


I got two more members painted tonight so I'll add them here rather than make another thread.


77118 Tiviel hell born rogue makes an acceptable thief.


and another barrow rat in case I need multiple war hounds.







group up shot of the warband so far.





Just need to do the wizard and a couple more members.  This could be a good excuse to paint up a beastman warrior and maybe try to put together a cultist from a sprue of plastic parts.  


Or maybe...  I have a troll slayer Sophie that might fit in with this rag tag bunch.

I went with the Sophie.  She could make a good captain, but I'll probably just use her as an infantryman.

Started on my first full frostgrave cultist built from parts from the cultist sprue.  It is to be a thief for my monstrous warband.  Even though the skull face is just a mask, I chose one arm to be skeletal to keep it inhuman.  Not done painting yet, but got a bit of a start after the glue dried.

      Another set complete!  This time it's a group of Eastern Fantasy themed adventurers and encounters.  Almost all the minis are from the third Bones Kickstarter, with the exception of the Tengu/Kenku Monk armed with kamas.  She's from Stonehaven.

      The group:

      The Oni:


      The Kitsune.  The male is one of my favorites...I hadn't even noticed the sake glass in his hand  until I started painting!  That and his swagger make for a very characterful sculpt.


      Just some Human Monks:


      The Kenku/Tengu:


      This is the non-Reaper one, a Monk from Stonehaven Miniatures:

      @Everyone :: Please feel free to share pix of creations from the Conversion Classes in this thread. 
      I will **start:

      As a beginning exercise Gene Bobby and Jason had everyone pick a body, add one thing, and pass it to the right. That was repeated three times. These were the result. 
      **Be warned I have moar pix...

      Idk if this is a KS model or one I randomly bought to fill out our need for giant monsters that are not cardboard cutouts. Anyway, he's done. He was going to maybe go in a desert diorama but I decided against (he didn't end up fitting). I might go back over his claw bits again tho, they seem a lot darker in the pic than they do IRL but theyr'e still just not quite right. Anyway, he's based on a couple of RL pics, mostly going for a shiny red carapace kind of idea. He's not in my WIP thread, so just a quick note, I undercoated him mournfang brown (a red brown GW colour) and then built up to the red with reaper's bloodstain red and later clotted red (my absolutely fave triad *ever*)

      Another batch of deadly forest encounters, the kind you'd find protecting Castle Stoneskull!

      All miniatures are from the Castle Stoneskull set from Bones III.



      Plant Dragon:


      Death Lilies or something like that!

      I'm just really proud of this, my first work with an airbrush ever. Maybe it's not the best skill & craft work out there for finishing a figure, but I think I win some points for originality.
      What I learned...
      Sometimes, inspiration comes when you think your finished (my son said "I thought you were going for a nebula") Sometimes, your wife says "It needs something iridescent" when you think you're done and she's right. Sparkling Amethyst on the spines Airbrushing means mixing and getting your consistency exactly right - I got lucky on my first try Airbrushing base colors is insanely fast, uses almost no paint and produces something much more even than I could dry-brushing Dry brushing is great for aging/leathering a piece - airbrushing is all about consistency of coverage. Trying to add red-shifted & blue-shifted stars to the star field looked like birthday cake sprinkles. Nature always has better color schemes than I can come up with on my own. I still need to figure out how to layer/thin/build up my colors.  
      After initial airbrushing with Violet Shadow and Clear Magenta and maybe a mix with aged bonne for the belly.

      First pass at layering for the spikes. I've got some learning to do.

      Another angle at the "ready for detailing" stage.

      My son said "nebula" and I broke out the clear blue and thinned it, but probably not enough.

      Here's the "finished" product. I detailed so many stars in the blue areas. Then my wife said "iridescent" and I added Sparkling Amethyst to the spines. It's a great touch and highlights the raised part of the body instead of leaving it the same as the rest.

      For scale against another recent work, my lizardman army.
