Wargames Atlantic make some lovely War Hounds attached to their....Dark Age(?) Irish. Whilst I didn't need the Irish warriors I snagged a few of the hounds from Facebook, lovely guy just asked for the postage. Anyway a quick contrast/drybrush later and we have some Wild Dogs !

I dug out a Dr Who Enter The Time Vortex miniature that had been in a job lot I bought. It was a rather rubbery Werewolf. Even with a new paintjob its still a bit meh, the details are just too soft. Attempting eyes isn't great either haha

Finally I decided to do something with my long unused Age of Sigmar Endless Spells, I'm out of the GW game (I just can't afford the endless rules/book releases ) and my fantasy mass battle game of choice (One Page Rules Age of Fantasy,  check it out) doesn't use them, so what do with a giant mushroom and a spooky moon ? Why turn them into scenery and a major demon !

A werewolfs head objective, always a nice way to earn some more gold in Frostgrave. Painted it up using contrast paints, had some pondering over the eyes. After an attempt to go for glassy white I settled on pure black (whether they've been plucked out or its the eyeball who knows?). I'm not usually a fan of gore on miniatures (its very easy to over do it and ruin everything) but I feel this warranted an attempt, I tried to go for a "fresh blood on crisp snow" kind of thing. Not quite sure if I achieved it tbh.

I've been busy working on other projects, trying to free up space for Frostgrave. Almost there though, thankfully I managed to get this Floating skull done. A really simple build and paint but surprisingly fun.

Hey ho everyone ! Its been a little bit but I've got more Frostgrave goodness done, been finishing off a Troll army which has been taking up my time

First up is a Small Construct, always had difficulty finding decent models since they're described as "smaller then a man", luckily this odd medusa figure was just small enough that she could feasibly pass for a statuette, one gold paintjob and she was complete.

Similarly I needed 6 statues for one of the scenarios, this stumped me for a while trying to find something that looks "right" , then I discovered an amazingly simple way. You just double base a mini!  After that it was a really easy job of a grey spray and white/bone drybrush.

Next up is a horde of giant rats! Reaper Bones miniatures which I'm not too happy with to be honest. Not sure if its a bad paint job on my end or the material but they're rather "glossy". Still I'm happy with the brick tiles they're on.

Also a new member of the gang, Sneach the Thug. Pirate isn't a class and I feel if your still at the game this far in land its a definite case for thuggery. Unlike other mouslings (whom I see socially as similar to hobbits) Sneach is a crook, a conman, a thief and generally an all around pirate. He's joined this gang just for the loot and is rather disliked by everyone else.
