  1. I just realized that I don't think this was mentioned here on the forums before, and since there seems to be a lot of Frostgrave fans here, I thought I'd post about it. Currently North Star and Brigade Games are running a "Nickstarter" for the upcoming Frostgrave Folio, which will gather all the previously released e-book supplement material into a printed version. It also includes some new original material as well. Here's a video flip through of the book: https://youtu.be/S8FGrneGBq4
  2. So I am getting ready to finish up my Wizard and Apprentice for Frostgrave, and I am wondering if there is a standard base size for the warband minis.... The pics in the main rulebook (the only book I have so far) doesn't mention anything as far as I can tell, and the Frostgrave minis pictured in the book look like they have their version of 'broccoli' bases, fitted to the mini... So before I mess this up, can anyone tell me what size I should use? Thinking 25 or 30mm would be best for the humans..... Thanks! George
  3. So I put the Secret Weapon Crushed Glass Snow effects on their bases, and here they are, Ejrvindr the Far Seeing and his apprentice, Dagrun Arnholdt'sdottir... Thanks for looking! Comments and Critiques Welcome! George WiP found Here
  4. These 2 also got their Secret Weapon Crushed Glass Snow, and, Barring some base touch ups, are Done! Red Gunhildr Little Svein Swiftfoot Thanks for following along and Looking! WiP here Now on to the thugs and the warband will be done! (for now...)
  5. Currently I'm working on a set of 5 figures that have a bit of a tribal flavour to them. The first three are from Hasslefree, one is from Red Box Games and the other is from Bombshell Babes. These first 3 figures are at the "okay for tabletop" stage, but I'd like to hone them and take them up to a higher level. When one gets to this stage it is often helpful to have another pair of eyes to help find places where improvement can be made. Here are the first 3 from Hasslefree. All three need more shading and more highlighting. Comments and critiques are welcome.
  6. Joined an ongoing Pathfinder campaign, and made these to match the current enemies we have been fighting. One mage, and three thugs. Got basing left to do.: The mage is actually a Warhammer Flagellant with some elven bits. Edit for adding all pics to first post.: Edit: I've now used some more of my cultists for a Blood Bowl team. And there are still a few left on the sprues! This kit has such awesome value. They were all batch painted, last night, after using a couple to choose the scheme.:
  7. So at some point this graced a fish tank, with fish in it, but that was long ago... So now, instead of going in the trash, It will become a Statue for Frostgrave! Material is resin, and I needed to fill some holes with Pro-Create. I also Bulked out the attachment point for the wings, as they were hitting him in the head... Raw state, with pin and Pro-Create: Primed with Duplicolor Black Sandable primer: Not sure if I will paint the foliage as stone or as living plants, and I am thinking Verdigrised Copper/Brass for the Bowl he is holding.... Thoughts and comments welcome! George
  8. Next up is one of the better figure that I have painted of late. I painted this figure up to represent a wizard for Frostgrave. As this particular figure has a Native American vibe to it, I went with buckskins fo the clothing. All buckskin was too bland for her male counterpart so I added the blue to her outfit to help break it up. I carried over the blue to her eyes, the crystal on the staff and the gem in her circlet. I like how the hair came out. I kept messing up her left eye and finally gave up when it didn't look too bad. (believe me it looked plenty worse before).
  9. Here is another mini I recently painted. Orginally intended for the Facebook contest, I finished it two days prior to the deadline, but never managed to take pictures. So I based it up for use in my Summoner's warband for Frostgrave. I figure he'll make agood apprentice. Done to my standard tabletop level, the pictures magnify every mistake I made. I tried to do some mystical runes on the scroll, but my paint was too thin and just bled everywhere. So he now has a water damaged scroll in his hand. Or perhaps, it only look blotchy to the uninitiated. Yeah, let's go with that. Also, are my picture looking as big on everyone elses screen as they are on mine? If so, I'll have to try and fix that. Fixing image size.
  10. So, I've been painting (or hobbying) every day so far this year. I'm finally getting around to posting figures as I've finished some bases and am calling them done. First up is Damien, who I painted up a while back to represent my Tiefling Warlock for 5th Edition. I modified the staff into a rod (a more Warlock type item) and kept him simple. The game I painted him for never really went anywhere and when we decided to try to get a New England area Frostgrave campaign going, I dusted him off (literally as he sat on my desk for months) and based him up to represent a Summoner. Just a basic tabletop job. I like how his silver eyes look. Give him that otherworldly sinister look.
  11. The counterpart to the female Elf Mage I posted earlier. I actually painted him first and I went with the whole buckskin treatment. I'm not too happy with how it came out. I tried a wash to give it some depth, but I should have just went in and shaded and highlighted. But that's what experiments are for. This figure suffered so that the Elf Mage would be better.
  12. So I rescued an old aquarium decoration, and painted it up as a statue for the planed New England Miniature Painters Association Frostgrave campaign.... Hope you like it! WiP here George
  13. Ever since I started working on my Frostgrave waterfront last year, I have thought that the Reaper "Dark Maiden" figure would make a cool addition to my Frostgrave figure collection; taking the roll of either a dockside Construct, or even a Wraith or Demon. I was lucky enough to pick one up in a Box of Goodwill a while back, and it's been lingering on my painting table until I built up the courage to tackle it. I finally decided with the River scenario from the Frostgrave Thaw of the Lich Lord supplement on our schedule for next month, that it was time to build up my courage and tackle this beautiful figure. In mulling over paint schemes, I decided that I wanted to do something like the grayish-brown of the masthead shown on the shipwreck of the Charlotte during the opening scenes of the movie "National Treasure." This seemed simple enough, just some brown and grey drybrushing over a dark base. The hard part was going to be that I wanted to make it look possessed, with glowing eyes and glowing swords; and Object Source Lighting (OSL) still is not a strong technique for me. In the end I'm really happy with how it turned out. While I wish it had turned out a little more aged grey, and less brown; I still think it looks properly demonic. :)
  14. So these 2 are being done concurrently with the 2 archers for my Frostgrave warband, so there will likely be overlap with the colors used in the 2 WiPs.... So I started doing the flesh on the next parts of my Frostgrave warband, Red Gunhildr the Barbarian, & Little Svein Swiftfoot the Thief.... GW Scorched Brown, Reaper Linen White & SC75 Tesla Blue for the eyes..... Arabic Shadow, Arabic Shadow and Basic Flesh 50%, Basic Flesh, Basic Flesh and Golden Skin 50%, Golden Skin, Golden Skin and Light Skin 50%, light Skin, and a glaze of Golden Skin and Basic flesh 3/2... Gunhildr's hair started with Abyssal Blue.... Svien: Thanks for looking, and Comments and Critiques welcome!
  15. This past week I painted up the Imrijka, Iconic Inquisitor, figure from the Bones II Pathfinder Heroes set. I believe this figure is supposed to represent a half-orc character, but I chose to paint it up as a half-elf female instead. So, the first thing I did was very carefully try to slice off the fangs. What I couldn't get off with a hobby knife due to the cramped area under her hat, I hoped to disguise with paint. There was something about her outfit that read Old West Cowboy to me; so I decided I would go with that kind of earth-tone palette for this figure. And her coat and hat made her seem a good candidate for Frostgrave basing. I'm really happy with how this figure turned out. I think the "Western" look came across well; and I'm particularly pleased with how her face turned out. I have to say with me faces are a good deal of luck rather than skill. I'm not good at painting those tiny details, but sometimes, like with this figure, my squinting stabs with paint turn out to be in just the right places. :) For the complete, step-by-step painting article, please see my blog: Imrijka
  16. I did a quick job on a couple of the North Star plastic Frostgrave Cultists this week, so we would have some for the kick-off of our Thaw of the Lich Lord campaign tomorrow (weather permitting). I really like these North Star plastic kits, though I felt this set had more undead skeletal parts in it than I would have preferred since I wanted it mainly to make cultists and not skeletal warriors.
  17. I had never painted a Garrick the Bold (Sir Forscale) before, and since it seems everyone and their brother around here has, I thought it was about time I did too. Coincidently, I needed a knight for a new Frostgrave warband I was working on, so I thought it would be the ideal time to do a Garrick for myself. Since he is going to be fighting in colder climes, I first modified him by adding an old GW cape to the figure. Also, since he is going to be employed by a Sigilist wizard, I did some freehand lettering on his shield.
  18. As the 2016 Frostgrave campaign wrapped up, I've started working on my new wizards. Or at least possibilities for my new wizards. The now out of production Ecclescake (9th Doctor) and Doctor Payne (War Doctor). I started by cleaning them up and assembling them, and tonight I used Reaper's brush on primer followed by a brown liner wash. These are really great sculpts, and I'm sad that Heresy had to stop making them.
  19. Slightly delayed as I had to work on editing the photos, here's the last of my recently arrived miniatures, the Barbarians that came with Frostgrave: Forgotten Pacts. First, the full might of the horde: The Crowmaster, sans crow: The Templar, who I thought resembled Tormund from Game of Thrones/Song of Ice and Fire: The Javelineer: And some solo shots of the plastics.
  20. So, I have flocking, sealing, and glossing left to do, but it looks like I've made a dent in all my end of the year Kickstarter arrivals, expected or not: This includes: Frostgrave: Forgotten Pacts, Oathsworn: Heroines in Sensible Shoes, RPE: Dwarf Veterans, Midlam: Wizard Apprentices, TAG: Halflings, and some other odds and ends I've just opened a package from Midlam of Halfling Wizards and Apprentices, so I better wrap these up soon...I think there's also some more Halflings and Chaos Dwarves due soon from Ganesha Games. I may have a problem...
  21. Just finished a small terrain element for my Frostgrave campaign (plus I'll can use it in Broken Legions games that hopefully I'll be ready to play soon). It's scratch-built, made out of insulation foam. As simple and quick construction as is, I'm pretty pleased with the result :) More pics on my blog: gabbigames.wordpress.com
  22. This trio may not have come from a Kickstarter, but they went into the factory line at the same time as my November Kickstarter paint projects. It's just a group of low-lives styled after those in "The Witcher" video game series, heavily converted. The crate in the group shot came in my ReaperCon swag bag.
  23. Howdy, Here is a recent completion. Kev!
  24. So I started these to have some things not requiring a lot of fiddly work last NEMPA paint day, (19Nov) and finished them up last night. The Nest: I added a few small tufts of Autumn Buffalo Grass, a bit of Fine Earth Turf Flock, and some Fine Light Green Turf Flock. The Treasure pile: A few touches in the coins with Elven Gold... I dumped some of the Silver colored Glass Glitter onto this to see what it would look like, But as the glitter was NOT round, it looked kinda like someone had shattered 3 or 4 mirrors onto the pile, so it was removed.... These wre the first time I tried out my new Warcolours paints, using Violet 5 to 1 on the 'robe' Emerald 5 to 1 on the shield Yellow 5 to 1 on the Feur-di-lis and Ochre 5 to 1 on the eggs... Very different from other paints I have used... Nice fun pieces to paint! Thanks Oathsworn! George WiP here
  25. So I backed both of Oathsworn's Heroines in Sensible Shoes kick starters, and got a free resin piece in each one. The nest in KS1, The Treasure Pile in KS2... I brought them with me to paint day, as I have discovered I get more accomplished if I am doing non detail oriented work there.... I figure that the can be treasure tokens for my Frost Grave warband.... Nest: Basecoat of GW Graveyard earth, eggs are Warpainter Ocher 5, 4, & 3 Clothing is WP Violet 5 Bones, skull, & scroll are Iroku Backpack is 50% Black and Brown Leather... Treasure pile: Chest bands are Necro Gold, Dwarven Gold, Elven Gold, with Agrax Earthshade Chest wood is a white with a wash of Walnut, and Agrax Earthhade Coins are Necro gold and Viking gold Shield is WP Emerald 5, & 4 Sword Scabbard and Handle the 50% mix of Black and Brown leather Thanks for looking!
