Ghost Archipelago Parapet Markers

Recommended Posts

The club's next Ghost Archipelago campaign starts this coming Saturday, so I am taking advantage of the day off to make sure that I am ready.  We are starting with new crews, and my new spell caster (warden) has a spell to create a little piece of blocking terrain, so I decided that I had better make a few today.  I am hoping/expecting that 6 of them should be enough. The parapet is supposed to be 2" long and a half inch high, so I pulled out some 50mm cavalry bases to stack stones on.  

 

Step One:

 

Glue on stones and wait for things to dry.

Drybrushed and sand added around the edges...last stop, grass...

 

...some moss on the stones would add interest & a splash of color.

That’s true. Would you do that with fine flock and glue, or with paint?

I us fine flock from Woodland Scenics or, lately, Green Scene Scenery from Scenic Express. Normally I stick it on with hot glue then do another partial layer with crazy style glue.

I paint mine in progressively brighter shades of green, but I am a fanatic.

RE: Malefactus's idea: I sometimes use some old dark-green coat thread (frayable to make branching "limbs") in combination with flocking, for a suggestion of creeping vines.

Agreed with the above--fine flock for moss, but if you want to make it look like lichen, paint is good for that.

My SO's observation on this is that it's odd that you have to paint real rocks to make them LOOK like rocks...

The "real" thing rarely translates as realistic in miniature

Funny, isn't it? 

 

Rocks look good though!

      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.

      My most recent painted pieces are the Tribals from Frostgrave: Ghost Archipelago.

      I really liked the spirit mask options.  My grandmother had a set in her spare room, and I was fascinated with them as a child.

      The Cyclops is actually a 3D print by Valandar to celebrate the successful funding of his Titans of Legend Kickstarter.  The Cyclops stretch goal in the FG:FA Nickstarter wasn't hit, but the file was released the same day.  I figured he would fit in with them.

      Seeing this map of the 100 Acre Wood on my Facebook feed made me think what a neat scenario map it would make.  This got me thinking how cool a Pooh based Crew would be for Ghost Archipelago.
       

       
       
           I immediately thought of Reaper’s Werebear, and Wereboar for Pooh and Piglet as the Heritor and the Warden.
       
           And coming up with an anthropomorphic Tiger, Owl (Bones Black Owlbear?), and Rabbit shouldn’t be hard.  For Eeyore I thought I could convert a Minotaur.  
       
      Anyone actually make a Weredonkey or Werehorse?
       
      My real sticking point is Kanga and Roo.  Does anyone make an anthropomorphic kangaroo?

      Among my first minis finished in 2019 are the Crew from/for Frostgrave: Ghost Archipelago.  I did two themed builds, plus a generic sailor who was left over.
       
      The Warriors of the Steppes.  They were done with a Cossack theme, and they all use official FG Crew bodies/arms, with heads from Warhammer kits (Chaos Marauder Horsemen, Empire Archers, maybe another)


       

       

       
       

       

       

       

       

       
       
      The Warriors of the Desert.  They were built entirely from the FG Crew sprue.
       

       

       

       

       
       
      The lone generic Crewman Crunch.

      Hi everyone, just wanted to share this Bigby's Hand spell effect mini I made. It is made of Fimo air dry clay and took me about 30 minutes painting included. I was inspired by D&D Icons of the Realms Spell Effects – Arcane Fury & Divine Might miniatures and diceded to try and make one of my own :D
