Making Frostgrave's Harbor: Part III (Final)
This past weekend, during the big East Coast Blizzard, I worked on building the actual dockside for the city of Frostgrave. I used pink foam insulation sheeting for the core of the wharf, and the cork tiles,I've been using for my Frostgrave buildings to do the facings. For the top surface I used some cobblestone roads I got at Walmart over the holidays in their Christmas village section.

I made three 1' sections, and a fourth small ramp piece. After everything was assembled, I primed it all black. After that, I drybrushed all the stonework with three levels of gray, and the wood with browns, and then applied snow and icicles.
I'm very happy with how everything has come together. I think this will be a fun addition to my Frostgrave games. I can't wait to have a chance to try this setting out.
When I wasn't building terrain, I was outside Frostgrave "LARP-ing" :-)
