  1. Armoured Skeletons (FGV314) by North Star Part of the Thaw of the Lich Lord campaign for FROSTGRAVE Table Top Quality _________________________________________________________________ Your intrepid warband marches confidently on the outskirts of the frozen city. After a long campaign clearing out the area your brave band of soldiers are ready to pursue deeper in to the white laden ruins. The cold wind, although bitter, has become manageable for your warband. Swiftly the winds begin to rush in from the inner part of the frozen Acropolis, deathly cold. Visibility is no more than twenty to thirty feet in front. Ahead you can see the white and grey haze of snow concealing the ruins. Your captain shouts, "halt" as the warband freezes in it's tracks. A slight sound of creaking then the dull murmur of metal sliding across stone and ice. The sound echos through the winds shaking your men to their cores. Slowly but suddenly a troop of skeletons flanked by two heavily armoured skeletons appear in the distance. It's just as you feared... _________________________________________________________________ -=The idea was to make them look like they are slowly marching out of the snow blind. It's so cold snow is sticking to them. =- -= The snow flocking turned out better than I expected. I copied the techniques of some fellow Frostgrave players here on the forums and I'm very pleased with how it turned out. Although with these it's hard to see but some other Frostgrave miniatures (which you'll see later) It turned out excellently. =- -=This has been an entire painting season for me. LOTS of wargaming stuff and it is all finished around now. I hope you guys like it.=-
  2. Howdy, I have started the faces and shield art... Stay Frosty my friends,
  3. This is the continuation of a show off linked here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/71368-sculpted-barbarian-warband/ This barbarian crew is finally getting some paint thrown at them. They have come a long way on their paint journey, but still have some distance before we hit that finish line. I tried to bring in a lot of varieties of browns to create the hide/fur look while also bringing in some subtle extra bits of color. Extra input into color ideas would absolutely be welcome. I have been trying to use a good amount of dry brushing and working on getting those darker undertones with highlights of lighter colors to create the illusion of depth and shadow. It's definitely still new to me, and I'm really inconsistent in terms of when it goes well as opposed to burying my darker tone with the lighter one, but that's part of the process. First we have our wizard and his apprentice, followed by our big fighters, then the thief and treasure hunter types, and finally, our archers and rangers. Anyway, comments, critiques, or compliments are always welcome :=)
  4. So, I recently ran across a couple of bodies I'd created simply in an attempt to work on my basic sculpting of anatomy. I decided to sculpt one of them into a barbarian. Shortly after, I started giving him a barbarian buddy. Then, I grabbed a discarded sculpt realizing he'd make a great barbarian shaman. Before I knew it, I was creating a warband. I made 11 total members, so I can either have a spare (for when I inevitably have deaths) or I can just have them set up camp in an inn. First off, here's the whole crew. Next up, we have Grim Windreaver and his apprentice Kyryelle Bloodmoon. Of course, they need some meatshileds to keep them safe, so we have Ulf Strom, Sig Bloodseeker, and Dern Crookedblade. Then, they'll need speedy and sneaky types to haul off treasure, so our thief/treasure hunter types are Derna Crookedblade (Dern's sister), Wyn Swiftblade, and Thrayde Rawfang. And finally, archers to rain a volley of arrows down on our foes. We have Sterno Warhawk, Yng Razorbow, and Yvara Shang. Looking over them, it's pretty obvious to me, anatomy-wise, which ones were earlier practice sculpts and which ones I did more recently. That's encouraging! I'm looking forward to getting these guys painted up and ready to go. Hope you enjoyed them. Comments and constructive criticism always welcome :=)
  5. One of the things I love about Frostgrave is that you can use pretty much anything model wise. With the ridiculous ease of converting bones, I decided that I want to work on an Arachnid (Drider) warband for whenever I cycle into a new wizard down the road. This is the first beginnings of the first three models. This is the all the cutting and assembly done on a wizard, apprentice, and a knight. I build all of them on Arachnid Warrior lower bodies with the wizard using Liella the Dark Elf Wizard, the apprentice using Andriessa the Female Wizard, and the knight using Cassiatta for their upper bodies. basically just cut off their legs and shaved a bit to get them to match torso length with the female arachnid archer's body. had to cut some of Cassiatta's shield out and readjust her arms and I will need to redo the wizard staffs. Some other minor green stuff work needed but they are far enough along that you can get the picture.
  6. This time, we have a themed group. I wanted to added some more members to my Arabian Nights themed forces, with intent to use them for RPG encounters and a Frostgrave warband. Last time it was mostly Reaper's "Legends of the Sands" boxed set, this time it's a variety of sources. The group: "Nabin, Desert Ranger" by Reaper: "Rasia, Bladedancer" by Reaper: "Watchers of Karna" from GW's LotR line: "Revolting Peasant" by West Wind Wargames Foundry: "Corsairs of Umbar" from GW's LotR line: And unrelated to the theme except for being found in the frozen city of Frostgrave, an Ice Toad from a D&D Giant Frog:
  7. I give you, Eldrin of the North with his trusty familiar, Poe. This has been one of my favorite sculpts for a long time. Though I have painted several pieces to date, I had a hard time deciding on a color pallet to use. Since I began playing FrostGrave, I have wanted to paint up a wizard to lead my band of treasure seekers, one that fits the frigid climate. The vines around his staff are meant to emulate the fall colors, leading into winter. I hope you enjoy! **EDIT** Here are a couple of updated pictures. I didn't want to try to tackle freehand just yet, as I have not been overly successful with it to date. However, the one thing I can't seem to catch is subtle shift in color on the cloak. The base is a light grey, wet-blended out to white through Bleached linen. CAH
  8. Seems that everyone is getting into this game, my group and I included. We have only read the books at this point, gathered our rough warbands and talked a bit about what we wanted to do with the game. I grabbed a bunch of terrain from 4Ground, awesome stuff, pre-painted, fairly easily assembled, it came in a pretty large box, happy times. A good amount of buildings. Vehicles too. I thought we needed surfaces to play on as well so I picked up two play mats from Deep Cut Studios. I went with the mouse pad material and it is pretty fantastic. Doesn't move, great color and detail AND pretty importantly it can get rolled up to save a little space around here. More to come as I get all this assembled and add a little paint.
  9. This is the second of the plastic soldiers from the Frostgrave Soldiers (SKU FGVP01) that I have finished so far. I have 8 more glued together, out of 40 now.... I bought another box since I really like the kit.
  10. This week I painted Kyra, Iconic Cleric, from the Bones I Iconics II Pathfinder Miniatures set. She looked to me to be suitably clothed for adventures in a cold environment; so, since I am short on Templar type figures for Frostgrave, I decided to paint her as such a figure for my Frostgrave collection. Unfortunately, this is one of the figures from the Bones I Kickstarter that ended up with nose issues. For gaming purposes this doesn't bother me too much, and a nice heavily highlighted nose paint job helps hide the fact that she barely has one; though you can tell there still isn't something right about it...
  11. Hello all, Please ignore the base for now, I'm still debating if i should take it off altogether and put it on a separate ice base or try to level the current one with a layer of fresh snow on top. That was a fast painting for a Frostgrave Ice Elemental: white basecoat, blue glaze, green wash, white drybrush.
  12. This week I painted up Ezren, Icon Wizard, from the Bones 1 Iconics II Pathfinder Miniatures set. Like the figure I posted Monday (Seltyiel, Iconic Magus), which I decided to use as a Fire-themed Elementalist, this one I felt would serve as a good Elementalist too, but an Air-themed one. He just had a very wind blown look about him, and I thought I could accent that by painting some wind designs on his clothing. I'm happy with how he turned out, and together I think they make a great pair of Elementalists for Frostgrave.
  13. For a while I had been pondering what figure to use for the White Gorilla creature from the Frostgrave rules. Then one day, while looking for something else, I spotted the Ape Demon figure from the Bones II Lesser Demons set, and I thought, "Why not?" Maybe the White Gorillas of Frostgrave are the descendants of some bizarre experiment of a misguided wizard long ago who thought it would be a good idea to cross a bat with a gorilla. (Maybe so he could quickly run errands for him through the crowded city. That's why he has the one big ear; (so he can hear his master call him home), and the big hands so he can carry all the grocery shopping!) Over the centuries the wings have become flightless, but they still make the creature look fearsome. :) I really like how he turned out. And I think he fills the role of descendant of bizarre wizard's experiment just as well as he did as his intended use as a demon! :) Step by step painting article on my blog: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2016/09/ape-demon-bones-ii-figure.html
  14. A while back I came across a photo of the Games Workshop metal Witch Hunter figure of the fellow carrying an axe in one hand, and a puppet in the other. I knew I had to have one for my Frostgrave collection, as it was such a silly looking model. Luckily, I was able to pick one up on Ebay. The puppet, as it comes with the figure, represents a religious personality with a mitre and staff. I, however, wanted it to be more of a "Mini Me" representation of the puppeteer (obviously driven a little looney from repeated trips into the frozen city). So, I replaced the crooked head of the staff with a small axe head, and carved his mitered hat down to look more like a helmet. I painted the figure, and did the puppet in the same color scheme. I wasn't sure what to do on his wooden sign, and then I got the idea to do it as a scoreboard, as if our Thug and his little friend were having a contest to see which one of them could despatch the most enemies. I'm really happy with how he (they?) turned out. I think it will make a fun addition to my Frostgrave collection.
  15. This is one of the plastic soldiers from the Frostgrave Soldiers (SKU FGVP01). This is the only one I have finished painting so far, I have 1 more in progress, and 8 more glued together (out of 20). I really like the kit, and I need to get them all assembled and painted.
  16. A trio of powerful Undead from Reaper, finished up with some other Undead encounters intended for Frostgrave games. The group: The Lich King (Barrow Warden Mystic) The Giant Skeleton (or should it be Skeleton Giant) And the Colossal Skeleton, so powerful he's busted through the dungeon ceiling (or backdrop, at least)
  17. I'm going to go ahead and start a thread for my Frostgrave warband. We've been playing a campaign for several months now, but I have lagged behind the rest of the group in putting together a specific warband with Frostgrave themed bases. I finished the first two off before Gen Con, and have been working on these at lunch the past week. One of my Gen Con speed painting competition entries, the dark elf, has also been based up for this. Here is the next batch, as they stood on my work bench this morning, awaiting a lower humidity day for final varnish coating. I see I need to brush off the bottom of the elf's cloak again, as it looks like some of the Woodland Scenics snow I'm using to finish the drifts has migrated a bit. "Aaron" hasn't gotten much farther than starting his spell effect cloud, but he's slated to be the wizard for this band.
  18. When I first saw the thread over on the Terrain Forum, where lowlylowlycook was painting up Kalladrax to use as Frostgrave terrain, I thought that it was a really cool idea; and I decided I wanted do the same for my Frostgrave games. So, I picked up a copy of Kalladrax, and last Thursday I got started on the project, and just finished up yesterday. If you'd like to see the full step by step Work-in-Progress thread, please see here on my Frostgrave Terrain thread; otherwise, on to the photos! :) I'm really happy with how this piece came out. I think it will be quite the show-stopper when used as the centerpiece on my Frostgrave table at upcoming conventions.
  19. Since I've been working on gathering the forces for Frostgrave, with "Into the Breeding Pits" being out, I had to work on a ton of Gnolls! All of these are from the official Frostgrave line by North Star Miniatures. The groups, both in plastic and metal: Gnoll Templar: Gnoll Apothecary: Gnoll Thief: Gnoll Marksman: Gnoll Barbarian: Hyenas: Treasure Hunters/Trap Experts/Tunnel Fighters: Gnoll Crossbowmen: Gnoll Archers: Thugs: Templars and Infantrymen:
  20. As usual, in the last painting binge, I wound up with a few pieces who didn't group with the others. They're all intended for Frostgrave, but they're more random Soldiers and encounters than anything else. Some group shots: The Barbarian Chief from the recent Gnickstarter: The Trap Expert and Tunnel Fighter from the same source: Some random terrain or Treasure Tokens made from old Warhammer standards: A Bard (Reaper Miniatures) A rather sinister Apothecary, who started life as a Plague Doctor from Reaper's "Pathfinder" line: A bandit test mini, made from the Frostgrave Cultists and Warlord Celts: A Wolf/Dog (Frostgrave official again) An Imp, via Mantic: A group of Harad Abrakhan Guard from the GW LotR line, who are intended as heavies for an Arabian Nights themed warband:
  21. In addition to the new releases, I had ordered another box of Cultists to my Gnickstarter order. I figured it would be good to build some of the new Soldier types. The Cult: A Crowmaster, with the addition of a Mage Knight's severed arm: A Tunnel Fighter: A Treasure Hunter: Some Knightly types (or at least guys with shields: A Thief: A Javelineer, with arms from the Fireforge Mongols and a spear from...somewhere?
  22. So, I realized something about my Frostgrave collection: it's lacking painted Wizards! Something I could easily fix. After the "Into the Breeding Pits" Gnickstarter came in, I scoured my collection for appropriate arcane types. Most had been sitting in boxes unloved for some time. My hope is to be able to run demos with these additions representing various schools. First, the gathering of Schools: A Necromancer Wizard (Reaper Miniatures Darkrasp) His Apprentice (Mage Knight) A Thaumaturge, a Reaper miniature picked up many moons ago for use in D&D 4E's "Revenge of the Giants" game. A Warmage from the old Chainmail line of D&D minis, who I think seems best suited to be an Elementalist: A Summoner from Reaper Bones: A Soothsayer also from Reaper Bones: A Wizard from the Warcrow range, who may instead see use as an Apothecary in the planned Arabian Nights style warband: An Elven Mage, who was also painted when I realize I didn't have any painted Elf Mages for a recent one-shot D&D game (Reaper Bones again) A Heresy Miniatures Wizard, who had his staff lost to the winds of time and replaced with a Warhammer Elven Blade: And last, some of the actual Frostgrave line from Northstar Miniatures. An Elementalist Apprentice: And the set of Beastcrafters:
  23. So over in the Frostgrave thread I posted that I would write up a battle report. Well putting together the the terrain pieces I have (not many ), I realized I didn't have enough. So I'm torn between what to build the remaining set up out of. I have several already cast piece of HA blocks of ruined field stone, lots of foam core, modelling clay, and miliput. I have in idea of how I want to set the board up, but need more pieces. Here is a quick photo of the start. I cut out 2' × 2' piece of foam core for the play area as per the scenario size. Then placed the pieces down. This is where I stand. It's rough, but I want to get started learning the game. I don't want to use generic stand ins, but I'm OK with it being unpainted since the 3 scenarios are solo runs.
  24. This week I finished up the Derro Mage from the Bones 2, Expansion 1, Derro Set. I plan to use him as a Soothsayer type wizard for Frostgrave. I'm really pleased with how this fellow turned out. I'm particularly proud of the big eye on his chest. I think he and the Apprentice I posted earlier make a pretty good "odd couple" Soothsayer pair.
