I’m having another trial game of Frostgrave next Thursday, so I’ve gone out of the way to get some more warband models painted up for a proper demonstration of the game. First and foremost is my apprentice – no wizard should ever leave their hideout without one – who is a kitbash of several plastics – a Mordheim/Free Company body, Greatsword arms and Empire Wizard head and right hand.
First and foremost is my apprentice – no wizard should ever leave their hideout without one – who is a kitbash of several plastics – a Mordheim/Free Company body, Greatsword arms and Empire Wizard head and right hand. The idea behind him is that he’s clumsily opened up a potion flask and is mortally shocked by its demonic contents – hence the cartoony hair with its grey streaks! I tried to tackle the demonic skull thing an inside-out layering technique so that the light would appear to be shining from inside it, but that ended up looking shite so I made do with a red-to-magenta-to-purple transition washed in purple. It’s not as impressive but I’m happy with it.
What did work out better were the flames on the brazier of that guy on the right. Quite pleased with them! I’ve wetblended these going from white to yellow to orange to red to dark brown. Picking out the bits of brazier in among the flames was hard, but I think I managed alright. These models were originally meant for a spirit host for my hybrid Vampire Counts/Empire army, and they’ve finally seen some brush love now. They’ll be used as warriors in Frostgrave – unarmoured, heavy weapon-wielding chaps. They’re a bit over-the-top but they look expendable, which is just right for Frostgrave henchmen!
Well that’s that then! A second blog post done and we’re not even properly into the weekend yet. Check back tomorrow for more Napoleonic goodness, or perhaps WSS, or maybe even Red Devils… All bets are off this weekend!
