They look great! And I think that ruined building would be perfect for Frostgrave.

 

One thing though, I believe maximum warband size is 10 standard figures, and I see 11 pictured. Is one an extra spell-effect figure?

Thanks!

 

Beeker (Guy with the tuft of red hair) is an extra, but when it came time to paint up the thugs, I needed 4, and there were 5 in the pack, soooo......

 

I was a little worried about all the metal beams and such making it look out of time / place....

 

Guess I will need to build more!

We never worry about a little futuristic anachronism creeping in.  In a world of magic, especially one where Chronomancy is a legitimate practice, who knows what oddity from the future may work its way into the local architecture.

They look great all together like that; very nice unified look you accomplished with them. Two thumbs up!!

 

And, yes those 40k ruins work fairly well as fantasy ruins, too. I believe some of those kits look a whole lot more 'techy' than some of the others; maybe avoid or minimize using them.

I will have to look through the sprues and see what will work best for Frostgrave...

There are a lot of sprues...

Very Cool!  Thanks... that helps bring a lot of perspective to your different WIPs!

Ahh... terrain... I've got to wrap my head around how I want to do some of the ruins...

Very nice, they blend together well enough to look like a band, but are varied enough to be able to differentiate them easily. And the terrain works great - I didn't even notice the metal beams until you pointed it out. I suppose you could convert them to wooden beams if you were really strongly inclined. But the skulls, cold stone, gothic arches and spiky railings are what drew my eye, and they fit the theme really well.

      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.

      The Dragonman something from the Bones 4 core set. This mini actually comes in many parts and with a selection of different weaponry and hand-held things. I went with the bucaneery sabre and dagger on account of the high boots looking a little piratey.  Also, this is what the render shown in the KS looked like.
      I went with a bronze / gold armour and my new darker flock mix. Turned out well in my opinion at least.
      The base is a 3D printed 35x25mm lipped oval as I thought a 40mm round was too large.

      This one has been standing around half-painted for a while. The rule 63 Drizzt Do'Urden from Bones 2.
      This model is quite nice from the front and back, but really flat from the side. Which is typical of originally made for single piece metal casting-minis.

      These scenery bits are from the Bones 2 and 4 kickstarters respectively. I did them quick in my go-to rock paint scheme. An uneven coat of dark greengrey over a solid black undercoat, followed by a heavy drybrush with a sandy yellow, and finished with a lighter drybrush of offwhite. Quick and easy! The colours give a much more satisfying rock finish than just using the typical monochrome greys.
      Too bad the colours are not really showing properly up in the photos.

      On each end are the Pillars of Good and Evil from Bones 2, the rest is the subset "Grave Things" from the Bones 4 core set.
       

      The Pillar of Evil to the left, the Pillar of Good to the right.
      They are made in the older Bonesium PVC material, and as you can see it shows. No amount of the hot water trick is going to correct that warped listing there. I have not seen the metal versions so I cannot compare them with the Bones or even say that the metal ones do no list in the same way (though I doubt that they do.)
       

      I would have thought it be more fitting if these came as a pair of each and not just one of each, but there we are. They are sold as single packs in retail anyway.

      These are from the subset "Grave things" in the Bones 4 Core set. Listing again! I was unsuccessful in trying to unbend the batty one as it bent back over time. Should have left it longer in the hot water. Oh well.

      Again, they should have come in a pairs of each.
       

      It seems Bones really is not the best material for boxes with square corners and all that...must be that corrupting influence of the Warp.

      This one is OK and untainted by the warp though. The loose books are a nice touch.

      Tiny glyphs and imaginary writing that looks much better (and way more impressive) when not magnified, as does most of my painting. The page is actually about 10mm wide. The black symbols and all that are done with .01mm and .02mm pens.

      klatoo...berata....nih*cough cough* Ok, then, thats it! *takes book, thunder rumbles* Hey wait a minute!  I said the words! I did!

      From WizKids' line of Nolzur's Marvellous Miniatures comes the "Treant", which is D&D-speak for Ent, or Treeman if you are more familar with Warhammer.
      I find this mini looks angry and scary, not like a benevolent living tree shepherd at all. A malevolent one, on the other hand, fits the bill precicely.
      And seeing as I have been painting undead halflings and there is a strong historic connection between Halflings and Treemen as allies; so undead treeman.
      Hence,  Torchwood the Furious here.
