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.

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.

      Painted up this minotaur over the weekend for an upcoming adventure. I might go back and add some highlights in the future, but I've been pressed for time lately and have just been trying to churn figs out. 
      His eyes are supposed to be plain white, he's a blind minotaur working for a Rakshasa that steals eyesight from unlucky adventurers.  He'll be using those big weapons to chop veggies and prepare a meal for the Rakshasa, but if the party can't sneak through the kitchen they may end up on the menu.
      Critiques and advice welcome as always!  Please note that I'm not even going to attempt making a base for this one.  I'm not confident enough in my painting yet, and want to get that down before I move on the next step of building up those cool bases that I see all over these forums. Thanks in advance!

      Better late than never.  I started these 3 months ago and finished them about 1 month ago.  Finally have a halfway decent photo area again, so I can post pictures!
      Over winter break, my elder digit and I spent an afternoon playing with some plastic tree armatures from the train store.  You have to glue your own flock on to make the leaves, etc.  I wanted to make a cluster so I carved some foam into the shape of a little hill and painted white.  The trees were not strong enough to punch through the foam though, so I ended up using the glue gun to get them to stay in.  More recently we tested out a mini string of led lights and tried trimming the tiny trees.  Did not work out great - I lost a lot of foliage in the process and the lights are spaced out too far for the scale - there’s wire all over the place.  Oh well, I had to use it after all that work, so it is the background for this jolly crowd.

      Ok, here is my first NMM paint job. I'm not sure if I dislike the technique, or just picked a bad mini to try it on first. I found it a bit fiddly and frustrating with all of the dully cast spikey bits. I did a pretty quick TT quality job on everything not NMM, so I know there are a lot of places to improve there. 
      Also, I feel like the photos make it look better than it really is. I'm pretty happy with how the front of the armor turned out, but the shield and shoulder pauldrons were frustrating.





      Would truly appreciate any feedback on improving the quality of my NMM!
      I'll be doing Mangu next and tracking in the same WIP thread.

      This guy was always intended to be toy box level painted. Basecoat, dry/damp brushing, and a light wash of Army painter mid-tone. But I actually really like the way he turned out.

      I was using this to try a different skin color which I like and I believe I was going to do a bit more detailed TMM but got side tracked. After several months of no work on him, I decided to get him "done" to tabletop level. Here are some shaky iPad photos. C&C welcome.
