The Mystery of Life.... Part Deux

So after getting home from work the terrain bug hit me so I decided to power through a number of pieces I had built. So here is Frostgrave Terrain part DEUX!!!

In my travels I had bought a bunch of resin accessories and immediately forgot about them. they have sit int he basement for the better part of 15 years or so and when I was looking for ideas they popped out as some to use!.  so I added some ruins with them to make some nice pieces.  I added a figure for scale as someone was asking.

I had two of these fountains and went for a frozen ice coming out by gloss coating the water area

Nice little vault door

I have 5 of each of these barrel blocks so they were a quick addition

Some sort of snake font or somthing.  after I painted I realized the snake must have originally been deisgned to be alive but I think it looks fine as a statue.

Another Fountain.

lots more to do having a lot of fun.

The Mystery of Life isn't a Problem to Solve, but a Reality to Experience

So I have been busily painting terrain for Frostgrave and having a lot of fun putting my feet first into building.

First up was a good find at Michaels.  A $5 birdhouse shaped like a castle.  Looked like a perfect Wizards tower.

First problem was the texture was way to flat so I got a can of texture spray paint and that cleared that up. 

Next I added some bits from some old mordheim scenery sprues I had and added some doors.

Painted it up and added snow.

Next was a resin grave I found in my boxes of bits.  I have 6 of them and will prolly do them as individuals for scattering.  I might get some renedra gravestones and make a proper graveyard.  I have a mausoleum idea.

NExt up was my first try at a ruin.  I used pink for and Popsicle sticks. For the Floor I just used a piece of hardboard

Another shot

And Another

One more time

After painting and Snow.  Snow is very scatter someone mentioned to do them in drifts so I will try that on the next one.  

I broke the last wire I had for my hot cutter so I am in hold till I can get another.

What Senses Do We Lack That We Cannot See or Hear Another World All Around Us?

So I spent the weekend working on my Basileans for Kings of War.  I am running some demos next weekend at Black Moon Games in Lebanon NH

3 Regiments of Elohi and 2 Heroes

Jullius, Dragon of Heaven Ur-Elohi Hero - 275 points

Samacris, Mother of Phoenixes Ur-Elohi Hero - 230 Points
The two have a synergy that if you take both when they are both on the field they get the elite special Rule 

Elohi Regiment 1 - 195 points

Elohi Regiment 2 - 195 points

3rd Elohi Regiment - 195 points

Total is 1090 points

This is a very sepcialized elite force but it hits hard and fast.  if will be fun doing demos with them vs my abyssal (chaos) dwarves.

It is Impossible to Live in the Past, Difficult to Live in the Present and a Waste to Live in the Future.....

To Say I am excited about Frostgrave is an understatement.  :)  I have always enjoyed skirmish play and Mordheim was one of my favorite games so this was a no brainier when I hear about it months ago.  I have been painting like a fiend to have both my warband and the variety of monsters to add to the games.  I decided on partially frozen/snowed bases   So without further ado here is my work in progress.

Here is my warband.  had a lot of fun picking out the guys.  For the bases I used a black or grey sand mixture and then added snow with a product called snowtex.  When it is still wet I apply scenic water affects over it allowing it to be spread around and gives it a wet melting feel.

Grizzled Wizard and his young apprentice.  Both Reaper Bones.  Bot the bones figures I used Walmart white flat primer and then finished with testors dullcoat.  That seems to be the best combination to avoid that sticky problem with the bones plastic.

Hobbit and halfling burglers.  :)  Both Reaper Bones

2 Warhounds.  these are old GW Mordheim ones.

Knight and a Templar.  Both reaper Bones.  I really liked these figures

Ranger  can you say legolas!  Reaper Bones

Felsh Golem (Minor Construct), Minor Demon, Imp and Major Construct.  Reaper Bones

Ice Spiders, Rats and Wolves.  Wolves are Otherworld rest are Bones.

Ice Worm.  Love this mini.  Reaper Bones

Ice Trolls and a Frost Giant.  Giant is Bones and trolls are Ral Partha

Undead.  Skeletons, Ghoul, and Zombies are Mantic.  Vampire is Thoroughbred. and the Wrath is Reaper Bones. 

Small piece of scatter terrain.  Old Grenadier resin.

Can wait to play some games!!!!
