Frostgrave Terrain- Third Work In Progress

I like the Wooden Wars soldier peeking from the third floor window.

I knew I’d regret not cutting out all the windows before I started gluing everything together and the tower proved me right.  Of course as an expected hassle it wasn’t too frustrating but, sadly, I have enough wisdom to know I’ll make that mistake again.  Oh well, chalk it up to spontaneity.  I did get to use a resin doorway I had picked up in a collection on eBay ages ago for the covered stairway.

 

Roof will have to wait.

Began building the covered stairway on the end of the pass through.  I think I can avoid building all the stairs though the area right at the top will show through the doorway so I will have to think of something before I glue the roof on.  That will have to wait until I’ve finished painting the interior so I still have some time to contemplate.  Added some walls and rubble to the back of the long row which really helped get it closer to painting.  Used up an old pack of “green stuff” to sculpt the stone arch.

 

Still need some roofs but it is ready for color.

Been making more ladders and bridges as well.  Little personal victory when I realized that two end bits of scrap could be turned around and turned into a broken board.

Looks like it’s right off an old Hollywood set

Practically designed for soldiers to plummet from.

While working on the long row I finished painting the second building.  I would have added a great deal of rubble for looks but it would have interfered with the gaming uses which defeats the point really.  In the end I did add a little flock, as a compromise, to break up the surface of the floors.  Now it just looks like a well kept ruin.

Really have to get more of those Mordheim doorways

Number2B

Just enough stairway left to get to the second floor.

Number2A

Not too bad, all in all.

 

While cleaning out the closet I came upon a number of forgotten projects.  One is a bunch of resin columns and the other is an extra statue from the Gardens of Morr from Games Workshop whose original purpose I can’t recall.  Now it will join my terrain collection.
