Those of you that have been following my Frostgrave progress will know that so far I’ve got one building 90% finished and another building’s framework built up.
Well I’ve been busy 🙂 I’ve since laid down a grey base coat on that building framework, and I’ve got two additional buildings built and grey base coated.
One of those buildings has an almost identical blueprint to my first house, except that I’ve decided to clad it entirely in lollipop sticks to make it look like a wooden building, and I’ve stuck a great big gaping hole in the roof where years of ice and heavy snow had finally collapsed that part of the structure. This serves the additional purpose of allowing players hands access to this building without having to dismantle anything.
The other building is a guard tower. It’s only two stories high, and I do plan on making a taller one, but it was a handy use of left over foamcore. As with the wooden house, I’ve made this accessible by blasting a big hole in the wall opposite the door. Probably caused by a loose fireball thrown by an over zealous elementalist.
Here’s an image of all the buildings so far:
I’ve also finished laying the kerb to the cobblestone roads, and three out of four tiles road networks have been base coated grey.
The eagle eyed among you should also notice that I added a balcony to that wooden house, I can imagine archers and wizards using it to get a commanding line of sight across the city!
That’ll do for this one.
I’m Jimmi, you’re great. Thanks for reading!

Excellent blog! What do you use for the base? Looking forward to seeing the board finished
Thanks frontlinearmchair! The base of the buildings? As in what they stand on? Hardboard 🙂 or have I misunderstood the question? 🙂
Sorry the actual board itself! Just doing research for my own board
Ah, in that case it’s from BnQ, it’s MDF. Got it as a off cut for £10 then had them trim it to 1.5′ square tiles for me for free 🙂
