Frostgrave rough ground, noticeboards, and ruin work in progress

Recommended Posts

Have put together some rough ground by sticking some resin basing bits from Scibor ("elven ruins") with foam off cuts and rocks from other models. Then just started painting the whole thing as basically a rockery. The idea is to add a bit of snow effect, and some lichen etc or trees when it is on the table. 

 

I have then started on a set of ruined buildings for Frostgrave. These are just foam pieces rolled with a green stuff world roller and stuck onto a wooden orange box left over from Christmas. As I shop at over priced supermarkets this was made out of some quite serviceable MDF/wood. It had holes cut into it already which I tried to use in the terrain. Am using balsa to stick ledges onto the inside and balsa floorboards on top. 

 

Will add more grime and then some snow effect. Will also think about using some water effects in the well/drain. 

 

Then, I made some little notice boards (as am a fan of Witcher 3) and my wife made some posters for them.

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.

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...

      About this project
      The Story
      Hello again from Munchkin Metropolis!  This time around I'm targeting all of you Roleplay Gamers!  With my DIY Dungeon Kit you can now take your game nights to a whole new level.  Being able to customize your dungeons into the format you want makes being a game master so much more fun!  Below you'll see the Base Set that includes the 4 most popular sets, plus the Stretch Goal Furniture Set.  The miniatures pictured are not included in your reward (I just wanted to show how I personally utilize this setup)...Other than that, the picture is exactly what you'll receive. 
      Too Much Information
      I've recently been to the Doc and have been placed on a very strict diet and workout regimen (Working out isn't that strict, it's just 30min of light cardio daily).  But he told me not to do anything overly physical, which for a woodworker means I can't really work.  So, to save my heart and keep my business afloat, I've chosen a campaign that utilizes the laser for 80% of the work...with the remaining 20% being light physical duty.
      Due to the sheer weight of these items, I've worked to minimize the cost on materials and labor as much as possible.   The base set weighs almost 15lb and will ship in a 12x12x6 corrugated box.  Making each set is 8 hours of laser time and about 2 hours physical labor (Which is why I set the delivery date 2 months out instead of 1...but for you early backers, expect me to start shipping rewards within a week of the campaign ending.)  Mostly, I wanted to GUARANTEE delivery before Christmas.  By setting it to October, I will have plenty of time to handle anything that comes up. 
      The base set already includes the 4 most popular Expansions and will make an AWESOME Christmas Gift!  
      The floor pieces are designed so that you can expand into infinity to make those LARGE scale battle zones.  
      You'll choose either 1 or 2 inch per expansion. Each Wall Expansion is designed to be as versatile as your campaign!  
      A Base Set ready to ship (The Furniture Set is in the bag)

      This is ending in 50 hours... Haven't seen it posted. There's a thread from 2015 for other tiles. I'm intrigued by the digital option.
