Hello chaps, just a cheeky little post for you today – I’ve had barely any hobby time in my chaotic (small ‘c’) life, so I have had to focus on a few low-effort bits and pieces. Luckily, I had a few such pieces lined up for Frostgrave. My Brother-in-lead and I are slowly getting ready to tackle Thaw of the Lich Lord, but there is loads of stuffs to do for that! Boats, ice river, a cart, a bone wheel festooned with corpses (?)…, Anyway, we’re not quite there yet, so we’re planning a little appetiser before we get into it – ‘The Hunt for the Golem’ is a mini-campaign of three scenarios, and is perfect for our wizarding needs.

With that in mind, I’ve sorted out 10 dead/dying chaps for one of the scenarios, and I fancied taking on a properly big & scary Golem as well. The deaders had the bare minimum of effort applied – just inks & a drybrush, followed by a suitably terminal looking amount of blood. The Golem was even easier to paint – I faffed about with different colour sprays, added a bit of texture, finished with some heavy drybrushing & various inks and ting, even a little OSL around the eyes… All in all, they were perfect little projects for short bursts of time & effort. Here they are for your viewing pleasure:

The minis were a mix of ‘Dark Age Casualties’ from Gripping Beast, and ‘Slain Adventurers’ from Otherworld Miniatures. The Golem is also from Otherworld – the ‘Huge Earth Elemental’.

I also added a minor addition to my standing Frostgrave warband – a blood crow from Northstar:


Not much to say about this little chap – again, inks & drybrush for a quick finish, but he pads out my warband nicely, (yes, I cheesed out and went with the Inn with Kennel and Rookery adds). Here’s the whole crew, trying to deal with Stompy, and then posing around the place like a bunch of posers:




Hmmm…. Need a backdrop or two! Anyhow, that’s it for now chaps – it’ll be slow going for the next few weeks, but I do have some more undead undercoated and on the bench – I should be able to get a few done between now and Christmas. Just in time for a bit of Deadcember action, eh?
