Frostgrave Terrain part 4

Hi Folks

Part 1 can be found here
http://shedwars.blogspot.co.uk/2015/10/frostgrave-terrain-part-1.html

Links at the end of each post take you to the next one

Onto the terrain - a few more hours spent in the Shed over the weekend building my Frostgrave city - I have added more walkways, towers and added few bits.

Started to sand up the various items and slap on the first coats of paint. But this is going to take time as you can see from the mess I am working in.

As this develops it appears to be developing into a mishmash of Arabian, Indian, Gothic and Crusader styles. The city is only in part decay - many of the structures will be sound but empty. Those that have collapsed will feature but concentrated in key zones that were ravaged by fires, ice damage and magical storms.

It is my considered thinking that our Frostgrave treasure hunters are going to head for the richer parts of the city - the temples, the palaces, the libraries and museums for their booty. Treasure is unlikely to be found in the slums or residential areas.

The piccies

A new walkway with towers and domes - sanded and part painted


The Alter of Evil has a plinth (steps required) and I have added paving to the America Step Pyramid


An Octagonal Tower - corner steps off first bridge now finished - awaiting drybrushing


There's the first bridge completed - the temple top left comes from aquarium pieces



Another city shot - more steps and the towers



A close up on one of the towers - part sanded


Another city shot...plus mess in background


The Octagonal tower (top sanded)


The Ziterdes ruined tower painted black - all the pieces will be painted the same so they tie in together



More aquarium pieces



More coming soon...including the first painted minis


part 5 is here

  3. Inspiring work as always, Eric. I shall be liberally borrowing your ideas, as most of the terrain I've seen in Frost grave AAR's seems to be sourced from Christmas decorations, making it appear that the city of Frostgrave should be populated by elvish toymakers...

  10. If those EVA sheets have thickness to them (I'm not familiar with that product -- but they look like thin foam sheets), have you thought about taking an Xacto blade and cutting out a few corners of the "flagstones" on the bridge or pyramid and sprinkling some small rubble pieces around the hole so that it looked like the stone has completely crumbled? Just an idea.
    Everything looks great.
