Subtitled: Some Things Should Never be Allowed to Thaw…
This past week I completed an unusual terrain project for my Frostgrave games; and a little back story is required first. Over the summer I took part in a round-robin miniatures-themed exchange box; where a box is sent around and each person takes whatever they want out, and puts in an equivalent amount. I took from the box: a GW Harpy figure, a section of tail from the Reaper Bones undead dragon “Kallidrax” figure, and three hexagon shaped ceramic tiles. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with these items when I took them, but as I sat at the dining room table looking at them, a crazy idea came to me of how I could combine them. I gathered some other parts, and started.
As you can see in the photo above, I also used a CD, some bases, a plaster disc I had, four small eye rings, some small nails, and a length of jewelry chain. Also note, the Kallidrax tail section has been cut in three equal pieces. I assembled them as shown below.
After assembling I realized I hadn’t primed anything, so I carefully wrapped the Bones tail sections in paper, and sprayed the whole piece with White Primer. I then began painting it.
I had originally intended to have the figure on top partially frozen in a hunk of ice; and I planned to use Woodland Scenics “Water Effects” for that. So I tested this idea on an old GW skeleton figure I had lying around. In the end, I felt it didn’t resemble ice enough, so I scrapped that idea.
I ended up just winterizing it in a normal fashion with some piles of unmelted snow and a few icicles.
I’m really happy with how this turned out. It’s odd, but I like it! I look forward to using it in this month’s Frostgrave campaign game.
