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