Sorry it’s been a while – work – you know how it is 🙂
Those of you who have been following my blog will know that I did a post a while back considering how to base the table. I didn’t know whether to try and put down some paving across the entire board, or if I should just texture the board and call it bare earth.
If you’ve not been following me so far, I’m building a Frostgrave table and tracking my progress on my blog.
One of my followers on facebook has suggested that I build a library based on the “Great Library of Alexandria”. I suppose I asked for it!
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.
So I’ve been blazing away making progress on my table, all four tiles have cobblestone streets fully laid, and I have 4 buildings in total so far.
That’s got me thinking ahead to two things.
Sorry the volume of posts has dropped a bit – my month long holiday from work ended and I had to return to the office. Sad times I know!
That doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy in the evenings though, taking the advice of Somet and Steinbergshedspace I decided to kerb the cobblestone streets with 6mm square dowel I picked up from BnQ.
This morning I spent time laying some more cobblestone flooring on my Frostgrave table base. I’ve managed to get 2 of the 4 modular tiles fully laid with cobblestones (unfortunately the big one with the market square is still to come).
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.
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.
