Another Frostgrave Cork Ruin, Two-Story This Time

Chris Palmer    I built another cork tile ruin for Frostgrave this week. (You can see my first attempt here.)  This time I wanted to achieve a few things different than the first one; a second story to test how the cork held up to a taller structure, more debris scattered around, and a stone rather than a dirt base.

      I used a 6"x 6" cork tile for the base and inscribed a 1 inch grid on it to represent paving/foundation stones

    The wood is a mix of balsa and bass. The debris was made from cork scraps, aquarium gravel, and course sand.   I  painted it with my regular acrylic hobby paint.

      The snow is from an old bottle of DecoArt “Snow-Tex”,  textured snow paint, that I’ve had sitting around for at least a decade.  I never had a use for it, and making these ruins inspired me to dig it out and put it to use. It goes on nice and thick and lumpy.  Once that was dry, I brushed it with some white glue and then applied Woodland Scenics snow flocking,

     I’m very pleased with how this building turned out, and I am currently considering what to build next.  I’m considering doing a wizards tower, and attempting bend a sheet of cork into a round shape using an oatmeal canister as a base.  my other thought is some sort of twin square towers that have some sort of precarious bridge between them.  I also have in the back of my mind doing some sort of frozen dock for a Frostgrave waterfront…

Eye Candy for Combat Patrol

Home Guard hurrying to get their copy of Combat Patrol ™

Thanks to Rob Dean, I have completed the final edit of Combat Patrol: World War Two.   Last night I shot a few pictures to fill white space in the booklet.  These are photos that don’t actually have a role in the booklet except as eye candy.  I plan to finish filling white space over the weekend and upload the rules to DriveThru.  That means the rules will be available Monday or Tuesday of next week — ahead of my Fall In goal.

American infantry assault an enemy bunker. This is what happens to those who don’t rush right out and get a copy of Combat Patrol ™.

The basic rules are just eight pages long.  The whole book is 44 pages plus table of contents, cover page, etc.  This includes extensive tables of vehicle and anti-tank weapon attributes.
