Are you going to make them stark white with some blue in the joints? Like Ice-Spiders?

Well, frost spiders. Ice-spiders was evidently a creepy monster movie — in winter.

 

What did you have in mind for a color scheme?

Probably more traditional Drow/Drider colors so purplish black for the most part.  I plan to get double duty use out of them and I'm not honestly that married to Frostgrave always being in frozen terrain.  Especially once the dungeoneering book for it comes out this summer.

I may have to steal this idea.

I found the key to be comparing torso lengths to the torsos that come with the arachnids to determine where to amputate legs.

Good to know...  This looks like a really fun and easy way to make a whole drider force. Are you planning on combining the extra bodies and legs?

Really thinking I need to do more of these bones conversions and make cooler figures that I wouldn't otherwise paint...

i had to cut to far down the legs. Also the legs aren't really good matches for the Arachnid torsos anyway. I will be looking for something more fitting to pair a few of them to though. With bones elves being so cheap, I don't mind ending up with some leftover pieces.

      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”.

      I believe these were in the pack called "Sophie and friends", but I am not sure if they have specific names or product numbers. I am still very bad at painting eyes, and at the end I just let the wash go all in and leave them as is. Pretty happy with the rest of the painted result however.
       
      Cassiata is much easier to get the eye to show through though. Maybe because she was molded with a slight stiffer material and therefore more crisp molded detail? I ended with a kind of blood kniight colour scheme because I do not have reference to her intended design.

      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.

      I realised that I had so many Frostgrave soldiers painted up that i had quite a big army for games like Saga, Warlords of Erehwon, Or even Kings of War. Am going to have a war machine with Frostgrave soldier crew, and these lancers /light cavalry. 
       
      These are the Frostgrave females, mainly, mixed with the legs and horses from Gripping Beast's Arab heavy cavalry. I cut the FG minis in half with a razor saw at the belt line and they fit  the bodies perfectly. There is a Victrix cloak in there and the armoured rider has Oathmark elf arms, but essentially everything else (including the bits and pieces of luggage stuck to the horses) is from the Frostgrave females sprue. 
       
      I will probably do a black wash on the riders (not the horses) and a couple of highlights. 
       
      I need to do a snow effect base and then make up 5 more. The idea is to have a 50/50 male female unit but keep the light armour/wrapped up look.

      Kislev lives on in our hearts forever. 

      I've continued my theme of building the Frostgrave: Ghost Archipelago Crew with a Steppes feel.  The majority of these are built using bodies and arms from the Crew kit, with some Empire/Mordheim heads and other outsourced bits.



       

       

       

       

       

       
      The last batch wound up being more generic Pirate types.
