Gribblies for Frostgrave

Here's a selection of mainly Reaper Bones plastics, painted up for dungeons and as Frostgrave fauna.

In the front row we have four Bones spiders, centred around a repainted plastic pre-paint, in time I will likely do an even bigger version with the same purple and dark red colours. Middle row shows two Dire Rats, bigger and nastier than my Giant Rats, then a Basilisk and a Carrion Crawler, finally the back row has a clear plastic wraith which I've coloured dark blue.

Pre-painted fantasy figures

There are a large selection of pre-painted fantasy figures available, made by Wizards of the Coast amongst others for the D&D and Pathfinder role playing games. Some of these figures are 'collectable' and as such have a premium, others are very reasonably prices.

I have touched some of these up and redone the bases. First up is a Snow Ape, just the sort of beast to be found wandering the ruins streets of Frostgrave.

This next model is enormous yet was only a few quid on eBay, I see this as an animated stone construct.

This next lethal beast is a Hook Horror, a denizen of 'underdark', again some repainting.

Finally, a Toad Demon, perfect as a summoned demon for Frostgrave, another enormous model.

Models can be picked up on eBay or often at shows where you can have a rummage through available figures.

Summertime rolls on

I've been in a bit of wargaming lull lately nothing much is getting me interested so I've been catching up on some reading, having a holiday and joining in on some casual D&D games. Wanting to keep my hand in I decided to assemble my 4Ground purchases from Salute. These two buildings will add to my EM4 Inn and Walled Farm to work towards a early urban setup, from the Tudors onwards. I have just ordered a cobblestone cloth mat from Deepcut Studios to avoid that green town look.

First up, Old Timber Framed Cottage 1

And Timber Framed Shop / Dwelling, which I choose to make up as a shop.

The next time I make one of these I will try and sand off the scorching in parts which I will want to touch up with paints later, I also will be putting a wash on the roof tiles. These are great buildings, will add some more to the collection.
