Crowley's Frostgrave Plastics

Recommended Posts

I’ve been itching to assemble some plastic minis for a little while now, and with the new Frostgrave Ghost Archipelago nickstarter currently going, that’s where my thoughts have been. Going through my kits, I realized that I only had a single sprue of the original Frostgrave Soldier kit, not the whole box, like I thought. I had also picked up the Sherwood Outlaw conversion kit to make some of them into Robin Hood type bandits.So, I decided to make some outlaws…

The conversion kit ended up being a disappointment. The fit of the bits was questionable, and for some reason the heads were molded so that the connecting point to the sprue was the top of the head, not the neck. This completely ruined both the heads without hats.

The frostgrave soldier kit itself isn’t bad. There are lots of options to go along with the 5 different bodies. I wish there was a little more customizability with the bodies. Separate torso and legs would have made a lot of difference. 

Probably not going to get around to painting them for a bit. I need the weather to warm up before I can spray prime them.


I’m looking forward to building some cultists next!

Have you considered brushing on your base coat? That's what I do. Waiting for Spring seems rather a waste of time.

Honestly it's what I do most of the time, but I'm planning on doing a bunch of assembling of cultists, barbarians and female soldiers, so there are going to be a lot of minis to prime. Plus I'm not in a hurry.

The brush on primer from badger air brush is pretty good.

We're those the sample bottles we got at ReaperCon? If so, it totally is!

Yes, they were.

Rather than watching the sports ball event last night I built some more Frostgrave figures!IMG_20190203_213435__01.thumb.jpg.1904394106d535d9ebea6e4bcae6b303.jpg

From left to right, another conversion kit from the Folio nickstarter, a regular barbarian, Conan with a gnoll sword, regular barbarian, and Skyrim barbarian.

Skull mask cultists. Guy on the left has an axe from the soldier sprue. I'm thinking about making 3 more spear dudes, but that'll use up the last of this style head.

I unexpectedly got today off because of snow/ice, so after spending most of the day working on homework, I decided to build yet more dudes!  3 more cultist spearmen, more gnolls, some goblins, and some weird kitbashed dudes...

Gave one of these guys a goblin head and a barbarian shield... He looks kinda weird, but I'm digging it... Might greenstuff in more hair on the neck.

The human is made up of cultist, goblin, and soldier bits.

Shockingly personable for troops. Left to right:

Forget the ax, I'm gonna punch you.

Grumpy stab McStaby.

"This is a sword. Pointy end goes in the other guy!" 
"Should I come over so you can ax that again?"

2 Horns on my Helmet, 2 swords in my hands, and a big F*ing Grin on my Face!

The cultist with the gor head is probably a beastcrafter wizard...  I don't know about the rest of these guys...
