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.

Marauder Miniatures Orcs (plus something else!)

I was quite partial to the Marauder Miniatures Orcs with their leather scale armour when they first appeared in 1989. Back in the early 90s I bought an MB2 Regiment plus a blister pack of the MM25 ‘extra’ figures in one of GWs clear out sales. All those were sadly lost in time but here’s a Marauder Orc Stone Thrower crew member from that era I’ve picked up recently.

Just what this next miniature is is a bit of a mystery. It came in an eBay job lot several years ago with other figures all from the late 70s/early 80s.

It appears to be a werebear of some description. I saw another one for sale on eBay a couple of years ago but the seller wasn’t sure of its origin either. It’s pretty grotty sculpting but I think it has old school charm! It might just become the Were replacement for the oversized Reaper Bones Werewolf In my Frostgrave collection.
