Frostgrave rough ground, noticeboards, and ruin work in progress

Recommended Posts

Very nice, I particularly like the job boards since those are things we don't see all that often.

Thanks everyone. Here are some more WIP shots of the ruins including a new one. Again these are quarters of a clementines box with rollered foam added to the outside. I am not adding foam to the insides to avoid over engineering and to make sure that the floor work/balsa is being stuck to wood, not to foam.

 

I need to varnish or add a water effect to the well and also blend in the stones that I have picked out in lighter grey. I will run a vine or dead tree down the exposed corner section in the last photo, where you can clearly see the old joins in the wood.

 

A challenge I have is that I am washing the stonework with black ink wash and it darkens things down a bit too much. It obscures the times when I actually highlight things properly! It might be that this doesn't matter when I add snow effects.

Have made some rubble piles just by taking the cardboard tops to the decopage ocean liner models I brought (the bottoms are turned into boats) and then sticking foam bricks and rubble onto them. This is a good way I find of using up the scraps from making the buildings and other terrain with pink foam. There are a couple of scibor basing bits on there as well. 

Painting was drybrushing with craft acrylics. Then I made an ink wash following the method in the Lukes APS videos on YouTube. I wanted a grey wash so mixed black and white ink with acrylic medium and deionised water. Will see how it dries but hopefully it gets over problem of me shading everything very very dark grey. 

Final step is probably to add some bits of lichen and tufts and maybe some snow patches. 

Oh and there is a dorky joke in there if you look hard enough.

Now with some lichen and tufts, have decided not to add snow so in theory could be used for Ghost Archipelago as well.

Cool rubble and ruins!

 

Dorky joke (in spoiler in case others want to look for it)

 

Tetris blocks?

Ruins nearly finished, just need to add some tufts and fake snow, and pay a bit more attention to the floor. 

 

Have used the homemade grey wash again and am much happier with it than using black ink wash. Also have been using domestic filler to smooth over gaps in the materials. The wood is just painted with Vallejo "wood grain", am happy enough with it but might weather it further. 

 

The only flaw terrain wise is that no one seems to have put any windows or doors in any of the unruined buildings...

      Made up these market stalls and goods from Mantic Terrain Crate range. There were the well documented problems with the spindly supports to the stalls being completely bent. Hot water didn't fix the bigger stall so I had to stick additional supports on to it as a frame, made from matchsticks and mdf sprues.
       
      Enjoyable painting up the tiny goods on display though and overall would still recommend product. Would be interesting to see something like it in Bones.

      Hello all! Here are a few pics of my second official terrain project. It's a castle/boss chamber, I suppose. I didn't really have anything in mind when I started building it; I was just fooling around with my new molds, tinkering with dry stacking. This eventually emerged.
       
      I built it using Hirst Arts molds and bits from both Reaper and Mini Monsters. The Reaper parts are Large Sarcophagus (77540) and parts from Magic Treasures II and III. I made the flags from salad container plastic and various bits; one of these days I would like to go back and paint more detailed flags and replace these. I see so much amazing freehand banner work and I have artist envy...!
       
      Happy painting,
       
      Laura

      This is a test piece for some ruins I'm printing and assembling.  I may have gone a bit overboard on the vines.
