  1. 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.
  2. So I finally got tired of this guy, and basically finished him up, put him on the base and called him done.... Tried a few new things with him, such as adding an off white to the base color of his skin for high lighting, as well as the work on his "Skirt" Overall, I am certainly happy with him as a piece to be used eventually in a Frostgrave campaign... Thanks for looking! G OOpsie, WiP here June will be the Black Orc Archer, The Haminister of Truth and I poked around the catalog and came up with next months mini... 03429: Black Orc Archer in Metal 77056: Orc Sniper (Archer) For those of you that prefer Bones.... G
  3. As I pondered my choice of wizard for my new monstrous Frostgrave warband, I slowly realized there was only one choice really. I put his witch, cat, and cauldron into he shopping cart around Halloween time. I knew I needed one for any legitimate Halloween display of miniatures. But it had sat unpainted in the blister for a few months while other things took priority. Back to the frostgrave war band. So I chose witch as my wizard's school and proceeded to fill the ranks of soldiers with monstrous members like the horned hunter and a medusa archer, couple of tieflings, and even giant rats as warhounds. I think I am meant to paint up this witch as the wizard. She comes with a cat that I'm putting on the base with her and a cauldron that I am not. The cauldron will make a great prop when playing pathfinder and I already have a place for it in the birthday party adventure I have planned for next week. However the cauldron needs to sit on a fire or bed of coals or something. I realized I do not even have a campfire token so that became part of this project. okay, so first I grabbed two 20 mm bases and glued some small pebbles and gravel to them like so: Next I had to put the witch and cat on a base. I cut up an old bones base to fill out the bare base with flagstone shapes and glued down more gravel to fill in some of the gaps. Finally everything got some black primer. Witch and cat: fire pit: The black Cauldron: All of this happened over the last couple of days. Have not had much chance to paint since Friday night since we currently have house guests, but still managed to just start to lay down base coats while everyone else was entertained by part of a movie. Out pale saffron on the Inside of the cauldron and emanations, the cats eyes, the center coals in the fire pit, and the bat in the witches hand. No, I am not making the bat yellow. Honestly did not realize it was a bat until I got the yellow on it. Now I know. also mixed wreath green with dusky skin to start on the witch's skin. Oh and also some vampiric skin for the witches hair and for a quick dry brush on the rocks in the fire pit. Here is where things stand right now. Cauldron Witch Fire pit. I would love some ideas for colors on that witch besides black and green. I can't seem to picture anything else.
  4. So I've been painting up this fella for Frostgrave. I went classic blue ice troll with him. After taking pictures I see that I could add some depth to the winter wolf fur he is wearing. If it still bothers me, I may revisit it later. For now, he/she. Is done.
  5. I finished this guy up on Friday; he's an old Ral Partha thief (if i remember correctly, he came in a 2 or 3 piece blister pack with some of his fellows; I'm pretty sure I've got them around here somewhere). My usual tabletop paintjob; I hope you like him. I'm still experimenting with my pictures; which version looks better?
  6. A mini I finished up last week while I was procrastinating finishing another mini (procrastination can be productive as long as you do something else that needs to be done other than what you are avoiding). Still need to base him; just need to find the right base for his Official Tre Manor StanceTM.
  7. And the final mini in this batch is Arthrand, who is destined to see use as an Arch/Ranger for Frostgrave.
  8. So whilst digging around through my 40K stuff looking for things, I found a sprue of GW's plastic ruins, and decided to assemble them and paint them up as generic terrain, hopefully to be used in our upcoming Frostgrave games.... Base coated with GW Rough Coat, a textured spray paint, sadly OOP Primed Black Dry Brushed with GW Stormvermin Fur, Codex Grey, Kommando Khaki, Fortress Grey Daubed with GW Blue, Red, Green, and Brown inks, diluted Dry brushed with GW Codex Grey, Fortress Grey, VMC Stone Grey I normally would have done a dilute Tomwise Sauce wash after the inks, but tonight whilst gabbing on the hangouts, I forgot!... Couple more coats of DullCote and they will be done... Though I may do the black wash now,,, Thoughts???? Thanks for looking!
  9. So, last year some of us ran a bunch of Frostgrave Demos at ReaperCon. They seemed to go over fairly well. I originally wasn't going to do something of this nature again, as there were some other games that I wanted to get in and the demos monopolized my time pretty well (to the point that I had to do a speed shopping trip on Sunday before the Reaper booth shut down). However, I seem to have taken a blow to the head and am seriously considering doing something similar this year. I have a couple of ideas that I am trying to judge interest in. 1) A straight up Frostgrave tournament. That was what last year was supposed to be, but it was mostly a bunch of demo games with me or buckyball teaching the game. The advantage to this is that people can sign up to battle and I don't have to babysit the table. 2) Frostgrave: Ghost Archipelago is released on Sept. 19th. Last year, Reaper was kind enough to set up an island themed table from a previous Warlord tournament for us to use. Thematically this would be perfect for Ghost Archipelago. Plus, with the new pirate faction at ReaperCon this year, it seems like a no brainer. The drawback is that the rule will only have been out for a month or so, and people might not have time to get warbands together (especially when trying to finish contest entries). Plus, it seems with a new game, it would most likely tend to be back to doing demos rather than a tournament. So what I would like to do is to gauge interest in either option. What say you all?
  10. This will be where I post my Frost Grave Terrain. First up will probably be an improvised fountain, made from a leftover plastic container and the water weird (77310) mini Also Dave Graffam's Tall Ruined Wall. I'll be doing that tomorrow with bristol board and going to the print shop to print some stuff in color. There's no Glue Stick so only priming and dry-fitting of the fountain
  11. So on the day the Haminister of trooth and I had lunch together in NYC, I had found a couple of cardboard pyramids that had been strapped to the tops of pallets full of something so that nothing else would be stacked on top... Over the past couple of nights, I have started to use some Blue foam Insulation to cover them to turn them into Frostgrave terrain pieces.... I attached the foam with spray adhesive, after making sure that the spray wouldn't eat the foam the way paint will... Here is a couple of pics of one of them... . My next step is to cut som 14" square MDF to attach them to for bases, then use spackle to fill in the gaps and blend the 'tabs' into the mdf board. I also plan on adding some Reaper gothic arches to them in the center of each side as 'entrances' , and then scribe lines in them to make the 'blocks of stone' that the pyramids are made from.... These will stand vertically at the outside edge, and have more foam put behind them to make the entrances.... Thanks for looking!
  12. So I finished these up with some Secret Weapon Snow effect, and some Dullcote... Thanks for looking! WiP here
  13. So my February Reaper order came in today, as I mentioned in Aquistions, and the blister of Treasure tokens that I think will be good for Frostgrave... Treasure Horde I: 02313 I glued them to some 1" square bases, and gave them 2 thin coats of P3 Black Primer... I think that they look kind of neat like they are, kind of like what an old Black and White pic would look, you know, like before there was color film.....
  14. So I added some MSP Sparkling Snow to the 'sprinkles', and am calling this done! The Ivy is to stiff to really mess with, so I am leaving it alone.... WiP here Thanks to those that followed along and commented!
  15. A challenge in the "getting to know each other" thread from this month was to try something in the hobby you've never done before. Well, I've never done OSL. I decided to pick up the Bones Lich to use as the Lich Lord for Frostgrave, and figured I could try to match the effect shown on the "Thaw of the Lich Lord" cover with the glowing hands. As the mini only has one free hand, I figure the green glow is only from one side... I started out by priming with grey liner, then used R.A.M. Black on the robes, and linen white to try to figure out what is going to be hit by the glow. Looks pretty good from this angle. Then it was time to add some color Thoughts? Comments? and most importantly, suggestions???
  16. I have been gaming for a vast majority of my life. I've played everything from WarHammer to D&D, and many things in between. In my younger years, before I had actual bills and living expenses, doling out cash for the latest model for whatever table top I happened to be into was not big deal. As an adult, I found myself less willing to part with substantial amounts of money for game pieces. That being said, I have found a love in the Bones sets that Reaper has put out. They are easily modded, and wonderful to paint, and the price!! Don't get me started. In my current Table top game, D&D, I have purchased and painted all of the characters for my players. Each of the players are metal models from Reaper. All of my monsters and NPCs are Bones models, with a couple of exceptions that came from other board games like Zombicide Black Plague or Descent. My players love having painted models on the table, and I feel like it allows them to be more invested in the game. I have even found myself, more recently, looking through the Bones models and building encounters in my cart online. The, I purchase and paint them up, so they are ready for the game. So I was wondering, with all of the talent on these forums, how many of you use the Reaper minis for games (other than the Reaper games like WarLord)? Do you use them for RPGs? Do you ever have trouble finding a mini that suits your needs as a character or monster? CAH
  17. ***Oh, Curse You Haminnister of Truth!*** ***This is all your fault!*** So he posted this in the house Tabletop thread: And I, of course thought to myself, I think have that thing at home..... And of course, I do: So now it's time for some moar Frostgrave terrain, albeit a bit silly.....
  18. tl;dr: I'm painting bunnies!! (and other critters) I'm finally wrapping up my painting projects left over from December, so I guess it is time to finally decide on some things to paint in 2017. One of my goals for this year is to actually play some of the games I've bought figs for. So far finding time to get a minis game going with the gaming group has been rather slow...been passing around the Frostgrave book since the fall, everyone seems interested, but haven't moved beyond that yet. So, moving on to my other potential person to play against, my wife. While she like playing games, so far she hasn't found time to read the quick start rules for CAV:SO I put on her phone last summer, and her Rach army remains unpainted. So perhaps something...cute and furry.... Burrows and Badgers seems like a perfect fit, and I've been dying to start painting them. I've been slowly reading through the rules (the only time I ever seem to find time to read these days is when I go to bed, but then reading rules makes me sleepy...(no Michael, it's not your writing, I have partially read CAV:SO, Counterblast, MERCS and Timewatch sitting beside the bed too )). And the other night I showed her pics of all the figs from the first two kickstarters. And she seemed interested.But now the problem is she wants all my Bunnies.... Also, all the figs are 1 piece, so we can play even before all the figs are painted (I know they won't roll as well, but it will help with learning the rules). And I get to paint all the awesome terrain Jo has made for B&B (and I may pull some out of the other Oathsworn boxes too). And as a bonus, if/when we get to playing Frostgrave, I'm making a warband out of B&B figs. So, I will dig out the figs and get a picture over the next few days, then get some figures prepped for painting. Now where to start?? Maybe rats.....I don't want to do the bunnies until I get a few under my belt...
  19. As part of this month's "Getting to know each other" thread, @TaleSpinner challenged us to... I picked OSL (which I always think is "open source lighting" rather than "one source lighting") because I've never done it before, never even tried, and the diorama I'd like to do for Reapercon really kinda needs it. With that in mind, I needed to decide on a mini to practice on. How did I end up picking the lich? Well, since this year's Frostgrave campaign is the Thaw of the Lich Lord, and I don't have the official Lich Lord mini, I picked up the Bones Lich on my most recent order. I figure that he'd look really cool if his hand was glowing. We'll see if I can pull that off. Tonight's progress was limited to removing mold lines. Or trying to. The one running straight across his knees? It may not be very visible in this pic, but it's awful...
  20. So after digging out Homer Simpson, I remembered something else sitting around forever, that would likely be pretty cool for Frostgrave terrain.... Still needs more putty work, and of course, a base of some sort.... The inside says Copy right Burger King 1996... And the parts are numbered 2,4, & 5. I guess that there should have been 1 more triangular piece, and a square base, but good luck finding those now.... I think that I originally kept these for use in 40K, but...... George
  21. These two were just left out of my group painting of the "Frostgrave: Forgotten Pacts" set.
  22. These are frostgrave soldiers. I like these minis; although they're plastic they have good detail. And each solider is put together using one of the many options available in terms of heads, bodies, arms, and weaponry. Coming up with a viable color palette took me longer than I'd like to admit. Given the rag-tag nature of this band, I wanted to show both variety and cohesion. Still WIP; lots of things to finalize tweak. But I'm relatively happy with the effort. (My favorite thing is the cowboy hat; I used a soft orange with a wash - which made it look like new leather.)
  23. When I first saw this guy, I wanted to paint him. Of course, I didn't realize how big he was. I bought him but have just had him sitting on a pedestal waiting for a reason to use him. Then I started hearing rumors of Frostgrave, but ignored it for a while. Then one day I looked up Frostgrave because I kept hearing about it. And there it was... the perfect reason to use him. I got in my Frostgrave book and ideas started coming on a warband to support our Ogre mage. Once I finalized my starting warband list, and now have a fairly comprehensive list of add-ons I can pick up, I figured it was time to paint him. I cleaned him up as best I could. He has a warped casting that looks like the two sides didn't meet up properly at a couple of extreme edges. In most of the middle it wasn't bad, but there are some spots that would need to have some things resculpted with a knife and are in hard to reach areas. I did what I could and will live with what I left. As my only free time has either been rain or after dark, I used brush-on primer. I was going to do skin and hair in the white and use the black primer for the other areas, but something was wonky on the black primer so I ended up just doing the white brush on primer for all of it (except the feet, need to come back and do that area soon). I took a shower so I could figure out colors for him (stirs the creative juices) and think I am going to go with orange-red hair and blue eyes, so fair skin on the rest of him. I started in with 9046 Fair Shadow for the body and put Brown Liner on the leather and wood areas. In the process found several more heads with hair hanging from various pieces (now up to 3). Going to have to go over all of the painted skin again before mixing up the next set. I will say, though, this guy eats paint like nobodies business! Soooo much skin! Still trying to work out his spells, but I'm leaning toward an odd mix and going with Enchanter, and if I do that I've got to revise my warband and find me a good construct (or two or three).
  24. So I was asked for a group shot of my Tre Manor / Red Box Games Warband.... Links to the individual Show offs: Ejrvindr the Far Seeing & Dagrun Arnholdt'sdottir Hawkeyed Arvid & Pretty Laerke Red Gunhildr & Little Svein Swiftfoot Njorn thugs The show offs should all have links to the Wips.... The building is from Games Workshop 40K, The Imperial City Box Set, Circa 2003? (Do you folks thing it works ok as Frostgrave terrain?) Thanks for looking!
  25. So my warband is complete! The snow effect is still drying as I took these pics, but I don't expect it to change to much.... (I will need to go around the bases with Black paint to cover the water effect smears....) Thanks to all those that followed along in the WiP! Can't wait to play a game now...... WiP here
