Finished my first five Nickstarter Frostgrave Barbarians and the three loot tokens that came with it.  I am quite happy with the sculpts as the details are much better than the original soldier sculpts.  I am quite chuffed becasue I have never been able to do tattoos.  Not for lack of trying becasue I have tried to do them many times in the past but it never looked right.  My eyes are not what they once were so the lines are pretty huge but I am happy with how they came out.  I will show some photos first and then give my particular recipe. 

The recipe that I worked out.  Base coat is flesh (this one was GW and the exact does not really matter much).  The tattoos were painted on in a bright turquoise.  A flesh wash (red brown) over the top of both colors.  Once all of this was dry I mixed up some glaze medium (this one was Windsor and Newton) with the flesh base coat color again.  This was completely translucent but laid down a thin flesh tint.  It was painted on the the entire skin area.  Once this was dry I did another layer over the highlights.  Once this was dry I added a small bit of white and did the highlights again.  Lastly I did a thin wash of the white spirits and dark brown oil paint.  Again, my eyes are not what they once were so the lines are pretty thick but I am happy with it.

I had tones of cemetery bits taking up a bin that needed to be used up.  Parts are from Rendera, Hirst arts, Keebler Orc, Lemex Halloween Graveyard and a chopped up Games Workshop Garden of More Skulls.
I was going to do them up for Frostgrave but decided to keep them without snow to match my game mats and the rest of my regular terrain.  Frostgrave Barbarian WIP for scale.  I managed twenty two bases.  I still have bunches of fences to do but those cane wait for a bit.

 Hope you like.

A few more bits and pieces.

Just some stuff I finished off today.
First an imp from Reaper's bones.  Tried to do something a bit different since it is suppose to be coming in from another plane of existence. 
 Reaper bones Chimera.
 Sister Mary discipline.   Reaper Metals this time. Will be a soldier for Frostgrave.
 Hasslefree this time.  I do not know if she will be a mage or an apprentice.
 Just a cat.
 Reaper metals familiar.  I will use it as a blood crow.
Some terrain.  This one has a campfire built in the corner.  Just something to liven it up a bit.

Hope you like.

Using miscast plaster blocks for Frostgrave terrain.

Just as the title states.  These are all from my miscast box for Hirst arts blocks.  Making ruins with them is nothing new but here is my take for Frostgrave.

Hope you like.
