A bit more work tonight. First, I cut more of the orc away from the beast. The stub I'd left behind was just too much to work with, so off it went. Gonna be interesting to see if I'll be able to sculpt in the thighs well enough to blend the torso with the legs that I didn't cut away.

After all the cutting, I finished sculpting in the fur. You can't really tell except on the left flank. Most of the other spots were hard to photograph and harder to reach, like the inside of legs. Once that was done I started to sculpt in the saddle and a bag with a strap over the back of the beast. The original mini has a much taller saddle, but my initial attempts to recreate it didn't work so this lower rounder shape is what I ended up with. I think it works...  But now I have to wait for the greenstuff to cure before I can do anything else.

And here are a few bonus shots with the rider, bow and quiver dry fitted on to give an idea of how it'll look.

Okay, so this was terrifying...

Weapon swap time!

IMG_20200406_181020.thumb.jpg.fdf361c965f0ee04e5d820e1e36d4059.jpg

But what to choose?

 

Decided on the beast man Gor spiked ball, but it needed a longer pole. The beast man gor standard bearer arm worked. So drill and pin and...

IMG_20200406_192614.thumb.jpg.5a9e96027c65c2e6933daf20f59ef97c.jpg

 

 

No, wait, that's too long... IMG_20200406_192035.thumb.jpg.4268e46934580d96731b9ec62c46cdaa.jpg

 

Thankfully the glue wasn't dry yet. Trim, drill and glue...

IMG_20200406_192957.thumb.jpg.600cb73f2408727f547ab44d0156dd2c.jpg

 

That's better. 

 

Then to pin him to the beast!

Tomorrow is leg day.

Pants!

 

Looking carefully, and over a day or two, I realized that the orc legs that came with the beast were just... too short. So I was gonna need to make them longer, which means raising Kornovik up some. 

IMG_20200407_163531__01.thumb.jpg.d4c079572b6279fd476f9d6b0fa6ae50.jpg

That also meant that the saddle was far too short too, so that needed bulking up. 

IMG_20200407_212836__01.thumb.jpg.9fb8ef51385b80e5671baf0fad316dc7.jpg

I decided not to do anything fancy with the pants. As much as I'd have loved to do something like the woven leather of the pants Kevin Sorbo wore as hercules, I just wasn't gonna try something that intricate. Maybe next time. 

IMG_20200407_222120__01.thumb.jpg.a4bf3f350e48d7af81607557f5bacfb1.jpg

And because I can't leave well enough alone, or do just what I'd planned on working on, I also added the reigns, the stirrup straps, wrapped over the split bracer where I'd done the hand swap to cover the obvious gap.

Next time will be the finishing details! Then on to painting!! (I hope)

Finishing up some details, including the bit, bow (from the Reaper Bones 3 weapon sprue)  & quiver (from the Frostgrave barbarian kit), skull (from the Frostgrave Wizard's kit).

I also gave Kornovik a vest, cause there was just too much bare chest going on.

Finally I added sand from Hawaii.

      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.

      Here are some chronohounds for Frostgrave perilous dark. The description of the beasts is that they are hideous canines. 
       

       
      My inspiration came from googling “ugliest dog”.

      Finished off 9 cavalry figures. They are all kitbashed from the Frostgrave female soldiers and wizards. They have been combined either with Gripping Beast Arab cavalry or with Perry Miniatures late medieval light cavalry or French dragoons. Some of the arms (in particular spear arms) are from the Oathmark elves.
       
      The Frostgrave minis have narrower waists and go well with Perry miniatures and with the gripping beast kit. The Perry napoleonic kit has a lot of blankets and furs on the horses, and the legs are separate to the torsos and have high boots. 
       
      I was scared of painting horses but just went for ultra simple coloured undercoats and washes. 
       
      I need one more lancer to have a unit of 10. May go for a bloke for balance, and to have someone who can tackle spiders and open jars.

      I realised that I had so many Frostgrave soldiers painted up that i had quite a big army for games like Saga, Warlords of Erehwon, Or even Kings of War. Am going to have a war machine with Frostgrave soldier crew, and these lancers /light cavalry. 
       
      These are the Frostgrave females, mainly, mixed with the legs and horses from Gripping Beast's Arab heavy cavalry. I cut the FG minis in half with a razor saw at the belt line and they fit  the bodies perfectly. There is a Victrix cloak in there and the armoured rider has Oathmark elf arms, but essentially everything else (including the bits and pieces of luggage stuck to the horses) is from the Frostgrave females sprue. 
       
      I will probably do a black wash on the riders (not the horses) and a couple of highlights. 
       
      I need to do a snow effect base and then make up 5 more. The idea is to have a 50/50 male female unit but keep the light armour/wrapped up look.
