Frostgrave: Delving into Another Wargame.

Lately, a lot of folks that I follow on Twitter have been talking about this new war game called Frostgrave. From what I could pull from the conversations, its a skirmish game based in an ancient fantasy city, and you can use any minis you want to create your warband. It sounded kind of cool and piqued my interest. I had to find out more.

Digging through websites and reviews, I found myself really interested in it, especially the fact that it's not a "collectible" miniatures game. This means, maybe, I can get my group to play it.

Or at least I'm hopeful.

But who doesn't like Wizards blasting spells and fighting each other, while searching for lost treasure in the ruins?

Finger Painters - "Halloween": Colossal Skeleton Battle, Finished!

20 days after the announcement of the new Finger Painters competition, my entry is now complete! It turned out really well too, even though I couldn't get my vision to be fully realized. After playing with both steel wool and green stuff for an hour and a half, I gave up in frustration and decided to call it finished.

SDE: Von Drakk Manor: 100% Complete!

It's taken awhile (the expansion released on 4/17/13), but Super Dungeon Explore's Von Drakk Manor is now fully painted and ready for the game table! My main hold back in painting them all was due to the Forgotten King kickstarter and the need to paint the Pumpkin Patch and Rattlebones all at the same time. But now the 2nd expansion pack for SDE is finished and it's time to move on to Forgotten King loots and new projects! Hype!

WIP - Finger Painters "Halloween": Skeleton, Sorcerer and Barbarian Painted!

The skeleton has been finished along with two of the heroes, the Barbarian and Sorcerer. I'm super pleased with all three of them, the skeleton especially, he looks nice and rotten. I've also reworked the layout one final time, and started preplanning how I want it to end up looking.

More work has been done on the U-Con set of Super Dungeon Explore stuff. Mainly the Witches and and Thundervale Huntress, but I also started spraying them with matte finish. Which lead to a problem...

WIP - The Finger Painters "Halloween" - Giant Skeleton

The new Finger Painters challenge has started and since it's October, that means super ghouly goodness! That gave me a reason to finally assemble and paint the Skeleton Giant from Reaper's first Bones kickstarter. But, thanks to the way my mind dreams up dioramas, I couldn't leave it at just the lone skeleton...

WIP - SDE: U-Con Set - More Progress

I'm making steady progress on the U-Con set of Super Dungeon Explore stuff. Its actually going along a lot faster than I expected. As of my last update post, I've finished the Pumpkin Patch and Shallow Grave spawning points, Princess Emerald, Fae Alchemist, the Crypt Spiders, Dust Coven Necromancer and Death Spectre. With work in progress now focused on the Witches.
