Thanks! I wasn't really trying to come off like that. It's just that I think that I have a tendency to notice the flaws more than what I've done right when it comes to my own stuff.
That is really awesome Keglo!

Are the shingles carved out of foam too?
Thank you! No. The shingles are thick card stock. They are made up of individual 1/2 inch squares. I also used cut up popsicle sticks from the dollar store to frame the doors and windows.

Thank you TREX! I am looking very forward to seeing all of yours when it's done.

Re: Frostgrave, Halo Ground Command and other tabletop minis

So I looked through the base manual, the breeding pits, frostgrave folio, lich, and forgotten pacts manuals to find out all the scenario specific terrain for them all.
-6inch by 6inch mausoleum with doors in the center on all 4 sides
-silent tower, at least 3 stories high with access to the 1st and second by two buildings next to it.
-bookshelves for the library
-living museum, 4 broken walls that make up a roughly 12 inch box.
-6 statues
-6 small stone huts without roofs
-a well
-4, 2inch teleportation pads
-6 columns or ruined columns
Folio
-6 pylons or pillars
-5 2-3 inch wide pits or wells
-2x2 foot table
-doorways
-2x3 foot table
-furniture tables, chairs, etc
-up to 4 un attached stairwells with matching trap doors, 1 per player.
-celestium- 3 tiered movable table
top tier 6 inches in diameter
middle tier 12 inches in diameter
bottom tier 18 inches in diameter
with various markings on them.
-casket
1x1 foot playing area
-Altar
-small altar
-telescopes
-broken down wagon or cart
-throne or pedestal
-large cauldron
-wheel

I looked these up through the books and have been working out ideas on paper to make all these eventually. I'm hoping on posting a bit of my creations tonight.

Re: Frostgrave, Halo Ground Command and other tabletop minis

@TREX , that's quite the list! I don't think I'll be able to make or get all that. I see a bit if proxies in my future. I at least have the Mausoleum done. Maybe that bigger new piece I'm getting from 4Ground can be used for the wizard's tower.


On another note, my buddy Chris wrote a nice article about a new technique for getting a rust effect on terrain.

That is every piece of terrain for every expansion there is out currently condensed into one list. So not too bad.
I seen a great tutorial for making the bookcases, It was basically just popsicle sticks, and it looked really nice. All the furniture can be made with popsicle sticks as well.
The casket-popsicle sticks
The altar/s and celestium can be done with a couple small pieces of foamboard and a dowel.
I think you already have some pillars which can be used as statues as well.
The tiny stone huts are easy to do out of foam core.


So in all reality its not too crazy when you break it down like that. The tower is super easy, I have some industrial rollstock cores from work that I already make dice towers out of so I'll use that. You could easily use foam core and a pringles can for the 10 inch tall tower. I usually draft out my building plans for the projects I do before I do them because when I do hit the shop, I hit it hard and bust out quite a few pieces at once. I'll post the bookshelves tutorial, its so cool and easy.


EDIT: The first 7 on my list are from the original rulebook.

Re: Frostgrave, Halo Ground Command and other tabletop minis

Does anyone know of any brick-and-mortar stores that sell wooden coffee stirrers?

Re: Frostgrave, Halo Ground Command and other tabletop minis

Hobby Lobby has the ones I have used. They aren't coffee stirrers though, but pretty much the same, except longer and with rounded ends that I snip off. Based on my friend's comments, the ones I use retain a better wood grain look after painted and washed.

They are in the wood projects section.

Thanks Hahma. I was just looking for the stirrers because you can get a ton of them really cheap, and their warped, irregular shape lends itself well to the making fence sections. Or so I read I would order online but Amazon is doing some weird stuff now with some of their cheaper products.

They are close to half the width of standard popsicle sticks and about twice as long. I also get mine from hobby lobby and the are pretty good for my projects. The latest use for them is on one of my ruined buildings that has a cottage type pattern on the sides of it. Kind of the look of a beige/tan wall with wooden beams painted a darker brown. I've been too lazy to get on the computer lately at home. I'm so close to being done with yet another set.
