Frost Grave Soldiers: Protect the paint bottle

Recommended Posts

These are frostgrave soldiers. I like these minis; although they're plastic they have good detail. And each solider is put together using one of the many options available in terms of heads, bodies, arms, and weaponry.

Coming up with a viable color palette took me longer than I'd like to admit. Given the rag-tag nature of this band, I wanted to show both variety and cohesion.

Still WIP; lots of things to finalize tweak. But I'm relatively happy with the effort. (My favorite thing is the cowboy hat; I used a soft orange with a wash - which made it look like new leather.)

      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!

      Messed around with painting the last couple weeks. These are Bones villagers from one of the recent KS.  Tried some new color combos, and using the Pathfinder paints for the first time.  Was having trouble getting good coverage with a lot of the paints, I ended up needing multiple coats (at least 4 on that brown coat) and going over them with washes and Contrast paints.  Good enough for tabletop, IMO.
