Frosty Bones

by PeterG

This guy looks like he’ll do a lot more than huff and puff.


In addition to building terrain and treasure tokens for Frostgrave there were a number of creatures on the random encounter chart I didn’t have any miniatures to represent.  So I searched through my vaults of unpainted minis for inspiration and discovered several in the Reaper Bones section.  Okay, so it’s really  boxes in a closet but vaults just sounds so much more dramatic.  One of the first ones was the dire wolf who I decided should be white to match the theme.  Besides, it gave me an excuse to use snow on the base.



He looks hungry


Not surprising this was a quick paint job.


It isn’t really listed on the chart but the purple worm just seemed to fit into the group and could be used in a couple different scenarios.



That’s a lot of purple.


That mouth is big enough to swallow a 25mm miniature.


It can even be used in dungeon crawls and role playing games.


Once I painted a giant worm I realized I really needed an even bigger bug because… well… because it’s bigger.



Hello, folks, I’m just happy to be here.


Fun sculpt and another quick paint job.


As big a bug as he is I have another ever bigger…


One of the very last things I finished painting before the game convention was an even larger bug called a Frost Worm. He’s so large he barely fits on his own base.  Now, unlike Necron99, mine is a playing piece, not a medal winning paint job so I concede to him on this one.  Still, I think he looks threatening enough to dominate a Frostgrave table.


Bigger is even better

Bigger is even better

This guy could eat a horse.

Now, in the spirit of full disclosure, I do own the HUGE worm/bug/monstrosity that is Mashaaf from Reaper Bones as well but have no plans on putting brush to it for some time.  Then again,  I might have to write up a multi-bug scenario and who better to play the boss.
