Celts in Frostgrave
« on: April 16, 2016, 02:58:20 PM »
Working on another warband, this one nearly exclusively using Warlord Games Ancient Celts.



Picture above shows the entire starting warband, with an extra guy: will drop either the Captain or Berserker, depending on whether our next local campaign will use the Sellsword supplement to be able to field the former or not. Beyond that, it's wizard (hand weapon), apprentice (staff), 2 warhounds, 4 javelineers (from Thaw of the Lich Lord expansion) and a man-at arms.



Apprentice, wizard (no choice in terms of school of magic really, bound to be a Witch that one, though Soothsayer could be justified too), berserker and captain. Straight from the druid and chieftains blisters. Actual paintjobs soon..ish...



Man-at-arms.



Javelineers. All four (these and below) need some extra work on the cloaks, after the current layers have set. At least they're a bit less cold in the Frozen City now... Shouldn't have shields of any descriptions, but the fists looked off without anything, so compromised and gave them bucklers (two from the Perry Medieval Mercenaries, another two are stripped-down Gripping Beast Dark Age shields).



More sculpting and painting to follow!

Nice work. I'm using a few of these as thugs in my warband. they are such dynamic sculpts for plastics!

Looking good! Those were the first historical minis I ever bought, shame I've lost most of them by now. Need to get another of those kits....

First painting in over a month time, dang doesn't time just fly. Couldn't resist starting with the Big Friendly Giant. Rather liked that sculpt.

Certainly, some combinations of parts can look a bit off, but once you got something that looks right, they often end up looking fantastic.

Also some of the first historical minis I got (may be related to the fact that they were among the first plastics ever made in the genre!). Worst part is of course that they were released in '08 I think, and mine still are mostly grey...

Looks really interesting! I'm looking forward to see them painted.
As am I!

Looking very good so far - I have a lot of admiration for those that can paint tartan/plaid, so bravo!

I've recently had those Celts brought to my attention (more so for Runequest rather than Frostgrave) and I do like them. Your paint job is spot on - very clean. I like!

Most likely going to play a Celt.warband in our games too. Plus they are in the jungle, so even less reason for them to be there!

Phew, been a while. With a new campaign just started and me sort of running it, I decided to crack on and finally get the starting band painted up. Two knights, two treasure hunters and another barbarian are mostly built and awaiting colouring.
Changed the apprentice from the angry druid to a spare model from Heresy - had to de-zombify her first, as she was originally undead and had some bits missing. Captain's paintjob will be updated as time goes on, he'll get some patterns on his cloak and metal armour once he deserves it.


Warband! Big barbarian guy will originally see use as a thug (no armour, hand weapon.. one less model to paint!). Overall composition: Wizard (hand weapon), Apprentice (hand weapon), Captain (hand weapon, dagger, leather armour), Man-at-Arms, 3 Javelineers, Thug, 2 War hounds.


Affraig, the wizard. Looks like I'll actually be using her as a Thaumaturge. Just a misunderstood old woman living in a forest dealing in medicinal herbs, I'm sure.



Willow, her apprentice. As harmless as she looks, no doubt about it.


Captain


Two friendly looking war hounds


Man-at-Arms


Javelineer #1


Number 2


And the final one

Thanks all - looking forward to painting some more tartan, but thought the lowly javelineers didn't quite deserve it (sorry guys!). Good thing it's the knights and other elite figures up next.

Coenus, can you recommend a tutorial for your hooded claok sculpting method?
The cloak is like any other, there may well be some good guides out there, but if not, I'll see about taking some pics when sculpting a few more over the next few weeks, there happen to be a number of models on the desk that will get some. Here's a quick guide to sculpting hoods I typed up a while back (by Odin, didn't realise 3.5 years have passed since then): http://thelastalliance.com/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=311&start=120#p70003
