Start of my Frostgrave warband.

Just finished the first three models for my Frostgrave warband.  First off is my witch.  She is an old Freebooter minatures witch.  I am pretty sure that she is no longer available. 

Next up is my apprentice.  She is a Hasselfree model that I picked up at Salute this year. 

Lastly is my treasure hunter.  This one is straight out of the plastic box set.

Hope you like.

Nice finds in The Works

If you are in the UK and have a works nearby check out what they have recently put up. 
First is wagon wheels.  Here is the pack and a comparison with Sarrisa wagon wheels.  There are four of each size so enough for two wagons or some to scatter around. 

 This is what caught my eye at first.  Resin roses.  This goes back to a thread on LAF about crops.  A few folks have made cabbage fields with roses and I figured I would give it a go.  I only bought two pack so it will be a small one. 
 Lastly is a simple 3/16 inch hand punch.  This should work pretty well for panels and such. 
Hope that helps.

Clearing my workbench

I spent this weekend clearing my workbench.  Not very much for some folks who seem to be able to produce massive amounts of stuff, but pretty good for me since I have about sixteen modeling projects on the go.  Kind of my hobby deficit disorder. 
First off is some pipeline sections.  These are cast from Hirst arts molds and just need some flock/static grass and felting on the base. 
Next up is my greenhouse.  It is a MDF kit from Warbases and I finished it off with some photo etched plants from GW and 4D.  I am pretty happy with it. 

Lastly is my campfire.  I needed one for my Gypsy campsite and Figured now was a good time to try it out.  I used the Ember techniques from the Osprey Masterclass Terrain modeling book.  Richard Windrow is the go to source for detailed techniques and if you have not read his books you really should.  The fire-pit is just gravel glued to the base and filled on the edges.  The fire is small twigs and horsehair and rubber fibers.  The glowing embers are made using Humbrol day glow paint. 

Hope you like.
