Hi all, I’ve been on my holidays so sorry for the week long delay between posts.
I’ve been back a couple of days and I’ve made lots of progress on that first Frostgrave house I was building. This involved rendering (wood filler) the house, chopping it in two so you can see inside, and painting the outside and inside, and applying final details.
My hangover is gone now so I feel much better thank you.
I spent yesterday evening and some of today doing more work to my first house, first and foremost I roofed it using cardboard from an old cereal box. You need to cut this into 3/4″ wide strips the length of your roof.
Pretty darn hung over today. The pub called last night and oh boy did it get messy.
Anyway, stonking hangover permitting, I had a go at building my first house for my Frostgrave board this afternoon.
I’ve gotten so far as finishing the shell – it has four walls and a roof.
I’ve decided to start building a Frostgrave gaming table. I’m thinking 3′ x 3′ and modular. Style wise I want it to look quite like Mordheim, that is lots of semi ruined medieval style multi level dwellings It’ll also be densely packed with narrow streets and corridors. Because it’s Frostgrave, it’ll obviously be winter themed, and contain a few set pieces like a wizards tower and a grave yard with crypt too.
That’s a lot to be getting on with, so for the sake of cost and fun I’ll be scratch building as much of this as I can. Now I’ve never really scratch built anything of note before so don’t go expecting a museum piece, but hopefully I’ll be able to produce something special.
So, lets begin: This afternoon my Hirst Arts cobblestone floor mould arrived, so I made myself little trip down to The Range (Thats like a cheap hobby/DIY/Homeware store in the UK) and bought some plaster of paris.
