  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 t
  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 dark
  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 Blood
  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 uppe
  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:
  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 successfu
  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
  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
  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 b
  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 w
  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
  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
  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:
  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:
  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 4
  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 wher
  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.
