Flock of Gargoyles

From the clear-some-of-that-crap-off-the-shelf department:


160613 Mantic Gargoyles x15

15 Mantic Gargoyles. One group of 10, and another group of 5 that matches the 5 I did last year.  I got 5 Gargoyles as a freebie from the first Kings of War Kickstarter, and it turns out later that unit sizes are 10. And only 10.

These other minis come from armies purchased on the Kickstarters. But I still have 5 leftover.

Oh well, since these are an absolute nightmare to rank up, I probably will use less then 10 to represent a unit anyway, so I should be able to eke out 3 units from these 20 minis.


These restic minis take significantly longer to clean up, pin and glue together than they take to paint. Perfectly servicable minis, but not ones I get terribly exited about.


And now they are done.

Billy and Gruff, from Billy, Goat and Gruff.

The two remaining thugs for Frostgrave:

160611 reaper bones 77252 Beastman Warrior 1 160611 reaper bones 77254 Beastman Champion

Billy “the Kid”, and Gruff, whom is the eldest.

Billy likes to talk with the trolls instead of fighting them, Gruff won’t have any of that and charges in.

The three brothers Grimm function as arrow fodder Thugs and treasure donkeys, very useful indeed.

The other – Chronopia Unliving

The second zombie for Frostgrave, the other Chronopia Unliving:

Chronopia squaddies usually came in packs of 4, with 2 each of 2 seperate sculpts. This is the other sculpt, the first being done a week or so ago.

Fee, Fie, and Foe; the Stone Constructs

Enter the Lesser Obsidian Golem from Mantic’s Kings of War range:

160611 Mantic Abyssal Dwarfs Lesser Obsidian Golem B

Ah, Frostgrave, where almost any mini can be repurposed and given a second life!

Even if I only can have up to two constructs in game (one for the wizard and one for the apprentice) there were three in the pack:

160611 Mantic Abyssal Dwarfs Lesser Obsidian Golem A 160611 Mantic Abyssal Dwarfs Lesser Obsidian Golem C

I called them Fee, Fie and Foe. I think the Greater Obsidian Golem will do nicely for Fum.

So, both a well’ard unit for KoW, and handy constructs for Frostgrave. Scarily large and imposing minis on the tabletop!
