Forstgrave Chronomancer Warband Completed
This weekend I finished up my Chronomancer warband for Frostgrave. I've been working on this off and on since last October, and finally finished painting the last figure on Friday. I wanted to assemble a band that looked like they had been brought together from throughout time; or had been to different time periods, and brought back souvenirs. I did some customization to a few of the figures to get that Frostgrave-meets-other-time periods look I wanted.
First up is the Chronomancer and Apprentice. These are both modified Reaper Bones figures.
Next is the party's Templar, "Crossbowman", and Man-at-Arms. The Templar is made up mainly of GW Space Marine parts, the "Crossbowman" is a plastic French soldier (unsure of manufacturer), and the Roman is from Foundry. Note, that the Foundry figure was so short compared to the other figures in the warband, I had to base him up on a sheet of cork to make the size difference less noticeable.
We then have a Thief, and two Thugs. The Thief is a Reaper metal Ninja figure, and the two Thugs are from the North Star plastic Frostgrave soldier set with the additions of different heads.
Lastly, we have the group's War-Hound. This figure is from Eureka, and is just filling in as a proxy (probably) until I get the guard dog figure from the Reaper Bones III Kickstarter this Fall.
And here's a look at the gang all together:
I'm very happy with how this group turned out, and I'm looking forward to get a chance to use them in a game!
