All together now: *singing boisterously* Harry the Horny Hunter had an Enormous Horn… When Mr Tumnus done gone bad! I chose this one as an archer for my Frostgrave warband. A maliscious spirit of the forest come out to stick it to the man. Or stick it to Men rather. 89033: The Horned Hunter […]Read More Minivember: The Horned Hunter
In the Frostgrave rendom encounter tables one of the options are two snow trolls at once. I did the blue Ice Troll a while ago and have been looking at this model to make it a compaion ever since. The time had come. Slightly larger, with much more armour and an axe (which refused […]Read More Reaper Bones Mountain Troll (as Armoured Snow Troll)
And a second incredibly fast paint job, done in between the Night Terrors: The mini is actually translucent! Second image is more backlit. As for all the translucents, the key is to give the models a wash and an undercoat with Army Painter Anti-Shine clear spray, which gives the paints something to hang on to. […]Read More Translucent Bones: The Crystal Golem

Frostgrave has some interesting charts of random encounter monsters. Which means having said monsters ready to play is a good thing. And what is a game set in the lands of ice and snow without Ice Trolls? Even though I have not bothered to specially base my frostgravers with snow effects, and there really is nothing […]Read More Reaper Bones 77344 Ice Troll
During the last few months I have traded and bought a good deal of second hand metal minis through a forum I joined, and several miniatures I do not know any details about have come into my possession. Here is one of them: …or is he recoiling from the cross? Was he bitten last […]Read More Putting the Fear into Friar
Reaper likes to make minis of all kinds of fantasy archetypes, including ones that are very good representatives of well-known fictional characters. I don’t mean to say that they are copies or knock-offs or anything like that. These minis are all original work that tend to immediately make you think of said characters. A picture says more than a thousand words: […]Read More Putting the C in Barbarian!
The two remaining thugs for Frostgrave: 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.
