Monument to the mighty heroes of something or other.  Since they've got great big green statues they must have done terrible things to other people who probably talked funny.  Bound to be Checkov's Knights in any dungeon situation.  As it should be:

Raw Umber, Robin's Egg Blue, Seafoam Green.  The Tropicana lid plinth is a separate terrain item.

They're just "army man" type Knights.  Not sure what I'll use the other 30 in the bag for.  I figured that larger, simpler figures might help my attempts to rehabilitate my fine motor skills.

They look great! It might be cool to use some of the extra 30 of them to make destroyed versions. Cut each one up into various bits and pieces and glue each "shattered statue" down to its own base and paint the same way as the non- destroyed versions.

 

 

Oh! I just this moment had a great idea! Assuming these are part of a terrain build for Frostgrave, use the leftovers to make a kind of "lifesized" chess board, that the mighty wizards of yore would use to test their tactical abilities with each other over a friendly game. Make a large gridded base, and lay a dozen or so of these knight figures out in various degrees of decay as ifa game had been interrupted centuries ago. (I really like this idea, and think I will be using it myself! Now to find a similar bag of big knights!) :)

Where did this bag of knights come from?

 

Eta: I think I found them on the great SA river.

The card says "Guardian Knights" by a company called Toysmith.  Pretty much any online toy retailer will have them.  More or less anything in the same size would work, these were just what was reasonably priced compared to classic Marx or Britains figures.  1/32 Hoplites would be pretty cool.  Stone would be equally effective as a paintjob, the verdigris was more for contrast than anything else (all my dungeon terrain is just so #$%@! grey).  I probably wouldn't do bronze for broken ones because a bronze statue is usually hollow, although there are some tricks that might work for that.

Like'd. Mainly for the great patina effect, but also the displayed knowledge of real bronze statuary's hollowness.

 

"Latina" effect?! lol, gotta love autocorrect...

Sorry for the thread necromancy - but where did you get the bases for these?  And how big are the bases?  I'm still trying to find something that I like for my chess set in the 1.75" range

Lids from Tropicana juice bottles.

      Finished after a few delays from a project started in...December 2019, woops, are some more female residents of Frostgrave.  All are from the official range from North Star Miniatures, other than two metal minis they are all built from the Frostgrave Soldiers II and Frostgrave Wizards II boxed sets, though they may have a few accessories from elsewhere (and the Cultists from the Frostgrave Cultists kit.




      The two metals: a Barbarian Apothecary and Barbarian Apprentice.




      The Cultists:




      Just plain Thieves:



      Obviously Wizards:



      K'ren, Slayer of Managers:



      A hero type:




      Those who could pass as Townsfolk: a Mule/Porter, an Arcanist/Old Woman, Town Cryer, local guide, and Apothecary/Potion Vendor.

      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”.
