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.
It’s suprisingly difficult to pick up a single boar miniature suitable for Frostgrave.
The limited wild boar miniatures out there seem to be made either as scenery/tokens for games like SAGA (too tiny) or pork monsters resplendent in armour and saddles (massive) to be used as mounts.
A cheap compromise was found for my Frostgrave.
This is an old (1993) Games Workshop plastic boar from a junk eBay lot meant to be ridden by an orc. Not surprisingly that means it’s a horse sized beast in comparison to other animals in 28mm. It’s Hogzilla. It’s also missing it’s tusks. Meh, it’ll do. Next!
I’ve also painted up some more treasure tokens. Three money piles made by Dark Art Studio – cheap and cheerful and nothing to write home about, plus a couple of kitbashed tokens using various leftover sprue bits and an old Citadel brazier that I got in another job lot eBay auction.
