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.

      Finishing up the Goblins from the Bones 4 core set.

      Delving into the Bones 4 core set, we start by pulling out the 24 bonus goblins that originally were in the Bones 3 core set. And add to them the 12 that I have from the previous kickstarter for a grand total of 36 goblins, 6 each of 6 different sculpts. I actually think I should have a few more of these, as one of the ones I got in the Bones 3 shipment was missing a part, and Reaper sent me a whole pack as a replacement. I wonder where I have put the originals?

      These are a bit thinner and more weedy sculpts than the Bones 1 and 2 goblins (Reaper makes a lot of Goblins, obviously they sell well), but as such they should fit well with my existing Lord of the Rings Moria Goblin army I am slowly growing for Kings of War.  I have based them on my 3D printed 20mm round bases, the Bones 3 ones have a slightly different style as I have since developed the design, making the later types more hollowed out so I can avoid the minis always standing on a hilltop.
       

      36 goblins are quite a handful to deal with all at once. Being nickled and dimed to death, or experiencing death by a thousand cuts as it were, is still dead.

      The rest are just Rabble (in Kings of War Vanguard)
       
      I generally do not like painting identical minis identically, so I switch things up slightly by painting each set of different sculpts in a different base colour, and randomly do the other bits. I keep some bits the same throughout, such as the weapons, shields, or helmets, and also have used the same strong quickshade ink and a very light drybrush with Team Yankee Maverick Khaki, a mid-to-light beige-ish green on all the minis.
      This together with the bases give the entire group a cohesive feel, so they appear as a unit while still retaining a sense of individuality,
      These are really quite quick to paint, just alot of them to do. I did them in between bouts of playing Payday 2 over the last couple of days.

      thus begins the 1985 Fantasy movie Legend, directed by Ridley Scott and starring a very young Tom Cruise and the excellent Tim Curry. If you have not seen this movie, do so right away. A classic Fantasy, in several ways.

      I have not really had the inclination to paint much the last few weeks, such is the way of the world.
      Picking up the brush again, we start with another one from the first Bones kickstarter that as been cluttering up my painting desk in a half-done state since whenever.

      Tre manor is at it again...   
      Another well-designed warband.    
       
      Unfortunately, one of the minis is a bit... not-PG. So no pictures.
