My next mini.

No painted minis or terrain today. However, I am searching for my next mini (or two). I've got my eye on a couple from Hasslefree miniatures sculpted by Tre Manor or . The problem  is I can't seem to find them in stock anywhere in the States. If I don't end up ordering them from The UK, I'll probably pick up a Red Box Games mini . So many goodies to choose from!

Kieron, Ranger

I received my order of a metal Tre Manor sculpt today. I've had my eye on this guy for sometime now.
I based him on a 30mm(?) base with some simple sand.
After that I got to painting and finished him off with a bit of Army Painter Swamp Grass.
I'll admit the free hand on the shield is a little rough but overall I'm happy with him.

I'm hoping to do more single miniatures in the future. This guy only took me about 3 hours from prep to finish. He was very quick and enjoyable to paint.

Frostgrave Treasure Tokens

I finished off some quick and dirty treasure tokens for Frostgrave today. These are the six basic tokens that come with the game. I have the premium tokens that came with the level 3 Nickstarter as well but I haven't finished them yet.

Finished Frostgrave Warband

Here are the pictures of my finished initial warband.

Wizard and apprentice
Bowman and dog
Treasure hunter and Thief
Assembled group
I'm pretty satisfied with these guys. I used a painting style that I haven't used before (simple and extreme highlighting) to give them more of a cartoonish feel and was able to knock them out very quickly. I've already started in on my extra troops and should have them finished by the end of this week.

New Wizard Tower

My semi-cartoonish wizard tower is finished except for the snow. It was super cheap and simple but I feel like it's a cool finished piece. It's made out of a Pringles can, a rockstar can, a few match sticks, foam sheets for the stone and shingles, a party hat for the roof, craft sticks door with card stock accents, and pink foam for the rocky base.

Unfortunately I didn't get any WIP pictures of this one but it was super quick and easy. I hope you like it.

More Frostgrave

So I finished off my first Frostgrave Thug, my Wizard, and a cool Warriors of Chaos to Necromancer conversion.

First up the Wizard

Next my Thug
 And finally the Necromancer conversion

Overall I'm pretty happy with the direction the project is headed. The Metal wizard was very easy to paint and the Plastic Frostgrave soldier box is very characterful .
