Re: Frostgrave, Halo Ground Command and other tabletop minis

Thanks for sharing that video Trex. I have some foamcore and have used it for some small projects, but would like to use it more. Of course, I have 8 million things going on at once hobbywise, so when I'll do it is more of a question than how I'll do it

I had a pretty productive hobby weekend last weekend. Other than finishing with Bluewing for The Drowned Earth yesterday morning, I was able to wash and assemble 12 dinosaurs for that same game (still have 2 Yuttaraptors to do and they are a good bit bigger ). This morning I was able to base them so that when it's not so damn cold, I'll be able to prime them. The models for The Drowned Earth are 35mm scale, so those dinos will look even bigger if I use them for Frostgrave Ghost Archipelago (still have to get that played ).

Also, the other day I was moving around some stuff on my hobby desk and found these 2 barricades from the Mantic scenic set. They were primed but I must have forgotten about them over the past year. I had painted all the other pieces (other than 1 car and truck). Nice to find something like this, as it adds even more terrain options. I did a quick paint job on them.


I had poured too much glue when adding grit to the dinosaur bases, so instead of wasting it all, I grabbed some stir sticks and made a little walkway/ramp etc. Previously, I'd prime and quick paint them, but I had extra wash leftover from the barricades, so I figured I'd try staining the walkway with it. Worked out well enough and looks more natural than my others that were painted. Can always use more walkways.

Dinosaurs shown with corresponding cards, and then next to a human sized figure for that game for scale.
