Frostgrave Warband Combatants (finished project)

It’s been a bit quiet on the blog this last few weeks. I’ve been busy assembling/kit bashing/scratch building both miniatures and terrain pieces so have lots on the go but nothing’s finished yet and can’t show anything new.

Given I’ve finished my Frostgrave project recently I thought I’d put a few completed group photos of it on the blog, starting with Warband Combatants. The plan will be to re-paint all the bases for these adding mosses/dried grass etc.

First some Wizards. The snow mix I used when I originally did these has discoloured considerably. I dislike snowy bases. I dislike yellow snow even more. These are top of the list for rebasing.

A selection of Warband Combatants. A mix of both metal and plastic figures from various manufacturers. Seems I’m missing the last 3 Essex Miniatures I painted.

Treasure tokens. Also looks like I’m missing the Citadel demon brazier for this photo.

Next time I’ll cover the random encounter creatures.

      Thank you! I mostly use white as an undercoat for both plastic and metal minis. The only time I deviate from this is with the white plastic Reaper Bones minis where I use a pale grey spray – grey on white to easily check that the mini is fully covered by the undercoat. (Despite what Reaper say I’ve always had big problems trying to paint directly onto these minis so I always undercoat them first).

        I like the clean crisp look you achieved. I always prime black and they turn out rather rustic. Sometimes it works for the mini, sometimes it don’t. looking at your results makes me want to try some white/grey primer. I have also primed most of the bones minis, and have had mixed results with not priming. it.

        Thanks, there’s a lot to be said for using a black undercoat and your miniatures (like Fafnir Hellhand for instance) definitely benefit from its use – its something I should experiment with more as I can’t emulate your splendid ‘dark and menacing’ look using a white primer.

    Hoping you read this and haven’t abandoned the blog forever! I’ve really enjoyed your Frostgrave stuff in particular, so I hope there’s more to come.
