Frostgrave Terrain... or at least frosty terrain

Recommended Posts

Ok, that's totally awesome. Can you describe the painting process (how the texture is negotiated, is there paint on both sides of the clear plastic, etc)?

That is awesome!

 

Will it also work for smaller puddles on lets say a 40mm base?

 

I would like to know more about this.

 

Oh and BONUS points for painting a WOLF!

Home Depot or Lowe's is where to get these - not sure you can find a smaller panel though.

 

Yes. Also Menard's, Ace Hardware or FleetFarm are possibilities. But, I can verify HD and Lowe's.

 

A 2x2 foot panel is possible (such light fixtures exist) but they are not as likely to carry that size variant.

I'm Dutch, so we don't have those.

 

What is it called  and how does the original product look like?

Maybe a DIY here has something like that.

@Sanael and Xherman, I am going to try to shoot another image or two to help answer questions. I looked online for a decent picture and failed to find one.

 

Partial answers: the material is about 2mm thick; it is smooth on one side; the texture is on the reverse.

 

Paint: All the paint on the two ponds in this thread is on the textured side. In the images the smooth side is the top surface. I believe it is installed with the texture side down (and obviously unpainted) if used in a light fixture.

      I'm fairly happy with these two, especially how the bases turned out. Other than that, I'm still working on consistent lighting and how top make the picture look good on both the phone and on a monitor. Also I may need to get some sort of air purifier, because the amount of dust that forms and how ridiculously quick it appears, is well... ridiculous!

      Thank you @malefactus for recommending this guy to me so very long ago. He was absolutely perfect for my needs. Now it's just to bad I can't get a game in. 

      Hmmm. his one eye looks a bit weird up close. Oh well, on the table he just looks confused. 
       
      I'll need to look up who made him again in a bit, so I can put that info in the title.

      Way back in 2016 a new supplement for Frostgrave was released called Forgotten Pacts which was the barbarian supplement. On the cover was a cool wizard riding a woolly rhino. Now they released a resin mini for that figure named Kornovik the Outcast.
       

       
      I never got that figure, but I did pick up Kargir Tundra Beast Rider 14632 at Reapercon, figuring that would make a decent base for a conversion. So...  I started by cutting Kargir off the Tundra Beast. 

      Easy enough. Then what? Well, since this isn't going to be an exact copy, but rather an "inspired by" proxy, I decided that the armored plates along the beast's back were cool, and worth keeping. But it still needs fur. Bring on the greenstuff. Thankfully fur is relatively simple to sculpt. 

       
      Not the best pictures... I also bulked out the beast's belly, mostly to give the fur in the middle (yet to come) something to be supported by. In addition to some more fur, I'm also going to be adding some bags, a bow and quiver, and maybe some tack. Reins especially.
       
      I also need to better trim down the orc belly to fit the barbarian body. Originally I was going to use a Frostgrave barbarian body, but they're too small to convincingly fit with the legs... so off to the Bones box... where I settled on Grundor Hoardtaker 77219.
       
       
      He basically fits, and once I trim down what's left of the orc body and turn it into a fancy saddle, it'll all blend in pretty well I think. 
       
      More to come!

      Here are some chronohounds for Frostgrave perilous dark. The description of the beasts is that they are hideous canines. 
       

       
      My inspiration came from googling “ugliest dog”.

      Finished off 9 cavalry figures. They are all kitbashed from the Frostgrave female soldiers and wizards. They have been combined either with Gripping Beast Arab cavalry or with Perry Miniatures late medieval light cavalry or French dragoons. Some of the arms (in particular spear arms) are from the Oathmark elves.
       
      The Frostgrave minis have narrower waists and go well with Perry miniatures and with the gripping beast kit. The Perry napoleonic kit has a lot of blankets and furs on the horses, and the legs are separate to the torsos and have high boots. 
       
      I was scared of painting horses but just went for ultra simple coloured undercoats and washes. 
       
      I need one more lancer to have a unit of 10. May go for a bloke for balance, and to have someone who can tackle spiders and open jars.
