Re: Frostgrave, Halo Ground Command and other tabletop minis

Thanks @Tornado ! Those look perfect. And only $1.99 for 9 barrels! I was already planning a trip to Hobby Lobby for some brush soap. These are going on the shopping list.

Great trades with Onacara, Gypsy, SirGalahad, elltrain, generalgina, Concord, Just_a_Bill, LongHeroscaper, janus19390, and the very generous obfuscatedhippo.

I'll certainly look for them. What section of the store would they be found in?

Re: Frostgrave, Halo Ground Command and other tabletop minis

Finished up some more figures for Frostgrave. I went with a brighter pallette for the 2 soldiers. One is an Apothecary that I kit bashed. He has a healing potion in his hand next to his chest. It's not the best, but I had carved it out of a piece of sprue. It works for me. The other guy is an Infantryman with a big fancy sword The highlights don't show up so well because of being washed out by the light, but they are there.
The other figure is my second Ghoul to be done. Had him built anyway, and I like the cleaver.
Finally, my 7th homemade treasure token. Took a piece of zombie remains from the Undead kit I had, and added a sack and backpack from the soldiers kit.

That stuff ismy composite cardboard that I cut with the scroll saw and made the cracks indented with my woodburner chisel bit. Glad you guys like this stuff. Im just getting started. I have another one of those castles that im going to do up differently. Ill post a side by side so you guys can tell how much work went into it. Good luck on finding the old fisher price stuff. Ive had all these sets since I was about 8 years old. Ill also be converting a fp pirate island and a fp sherwood forest. I have a dozen other things in the works also. Do yourselves a favor and check out DM Craft on youtube by dm scotty. Hes got hundreds of awesome cheap tutorials.

Re: Frostgrave, Halo Ground Command and other tabletop minis

Way sweet hahma. I taught my one niece thats 14 how to do some painting yesterday. I was telling her about frostgrave and she painted up a pegasus riding figure that ill mod with greenstuff to make into her wizard. She painted the pegasus black with admiral blue drybrush and then painted the mane and tail up like blue fire. She has a knack for art and I have been teaching her more and more. Ill post pics. I may knock out a few more builds today. I really want to build my arcanium idea.

Your barrel pieces look great! I'm stealing that idea

I have been checking out DM Scotty a little bit lately, as well as this other guy, the Terrain Tutor I believe, from England as well. DM Scotty seems to be more about the real cheap and easy crafts. In fact, the last ones I saw were making dungeon pathways and archways. He's a magician with cardboard and a hot glue gun

That's cool that you are doing that. I used to build models and got started painting some minis back when I was about 12 or so, though stopped by the end of high school when I went into the Marines for 4 years and life took me in another direction from hobbying for awhile. Picked up painting again hardcore almost a year ago and haven't looked back. Keep trying new things and looking to learn and improve. So hopefully your niece will get into it and enjoy the hobby, I have seen a lot of great female painters in the industry on videos and at Adepticon.

Re: Frostgrave, Halo Ground Command and other tabletop minis

The barrels are painted black. Then a thicker drybrush a medium brown on. Then a lighter drybrush of tan. Dark silver around for the metal pieces. I used hot glue to stack them and glue to base. I still have a couple more bags of barrels to use for later.

Re: Frostgrave, Halo Ground Command and other tabletop minis

I use dm scottys ideas but use more durable materials. I like his ideas but want my stuff to last longer. Though. Folks on a tighter budget can make tons of cool stuff for cheap and it still holds up plenty good.
