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.
So as you probably know the wizards in Frostgrave are accompanied by hired soldiers that handle combat on the streets of Arendelle Felstad.
I’ve been painting some to cover a few choices from the book, first up are Crossbowmen, Men at Arms and Archers. The idea is to have enough figures to pick 8 combatants for a wizard’s warband. I will cover the rest of the options, including the random encounter creatures, as time permits.
This first set are Fireforge Foot Sergeant figures which will be used as Men at Arms and Crossbowmen.
As I’ll only use these with Frostgrave I concentrated on what I’d describe as ‘fantasy colours’ rather than authentic Medieval tones or livery – for example the Gambesons are painted up as leather rather than linen/wool and the shields are just randomly painted using a few water slide transfers from GW.
Similarly I based them purely with Frostgrave’s streets in mind rather than emulating historical battlefields of mud and turf.
