Another Frostgrave convert! Me and my mates bought the books and I ordered two sets of the excellent cards made by audrey. Friday is our first evening of Frostgrave and we're all looking forwards to it.
I decided to play a Necromancer for a wizard...I just remembered I had an ace Ridolfi sculpt in my collection which was perfect for the game. So I quickly painted him up (about 3 hours work, so I'm quite happy) and my first and most important member of the warband is done!

Count Dragos - Necromancer

(the snow is crushed glass by Scenery Workshop...love that stuff)

And I had painted his puppy some years back for Warmachine (as a War Dog), and he is just perfect for the warband.

Count Dragos and Putin

The little pup is an aggressive, arrogant and megalomaniac warhound...perfect for Dragos!

Next up is the Templar, which is about finished...just needs some snow...

Really great start. Is that vampire a Reaper mini? He looks great, and I find myself thinking up a use for one. Tongue

Reaper have so many cool Vampires. Heck, I think you can do a Vampire warband if you want Smiley

**edit**
And apparently it is a Garrety sculpt! When it comes down to undead, I always think of Bob Ridolfi. But cool she did them too Smiley

They look fantastic, one of the best snow effects I've seen yet! Three hours for the paint job on your wizard?! Wow...that'd take me about 3 weeks!  Laugh

Time for an update! I've finished a new miniature and some scenery.

Apprentice Necromancer

An ancient Citadel wizard and I really like him. A bit of an odd sculpt, but with loads of character. I went with greenish tones and added P3 Coal Black to almost every color to tie him in with his master and to make all colors a bit cooler in tone.

Wight King (Templar)

I finished this one two years ago for a Delves campaign, but figured he was excellent for Frostgrave as a Templar. So I added snow and added some highlights to the bone. The miniature was an experiment in fast and efficient painting: he was colored in base colors, dipped with a home made dip and then received some fast highlights. About two hours work, but I was real happy.

Warband

Here's the whole warband, so the Wizard, Apprentice, Templar, Warhound and the zombie I use when I raise one from the dead. He was painted in a similar way as the Templar.

Scenery - Fountain (Fenris Games)

Excellent model, which was sculpted by LAF's Redshadows IIRC. A blast to paint! I didn't know what to do with the top, so decided to turn it into a big flower pot Cheesy

Scenery - Statue (Fenris Games)

The statue itself is also by Redshadows...the plinth is a resin plinth by Fenris and the base is a 60mm AT-43 base. Supereasy paintjob and the weathering is done with Modelmates weathering liquids. Supereasy to use and fast!

Well - Tabletop World

Man oh man...what a FANTASTIC cast and model. So much detail and everything is crisp. Lots of character and an excellent addition to my village.

Altar of Cthulhu - Fenris Games


A must-have for every Cthulhu fan and a great objective piece for many games. I didn't know what to do with the sigil...but blood always works well when it comes down to Cthulhu Wink

Evil standing stones - Fenris Games

Nice small additions to the gaming table. I wanted to emphasize the engravings, so I made them bloody. Fast, effective and they pop well on the table.

Evil graves - Fenris Games

Nice and simple additions to the graveyard and they fit in well with my Cthulhu scenery.

So done for now. Next up will be some soldiers...but first back to Cyberpunk...

The basing on the evil graves is incredible! The flowers are a brilliant touch.

I also like the simple and effective cultists. But star of the show has got to be your Count Ridolfi and the necromancer. Beautiful painting there.
