That said, I've not been completely inactive...
I've been playing (and editing!) a bit of Frostgrave, with some demo games for the Osprey office:
Both gangs were my kitbashed creations - the 'Blues' and the 'Browns', while Maugor got his first run-out as a rather under-dressed Snow Troll. He mauled some henchmen then died and had his treasure stolen. C'est la vie.
Treasure features quite heavily in Frostgrave and I was more than a little jealous of the treasure tokens the author, Joe, had produced and determined to produce my own.
Joe's were beautiful little elements - treasure chests, piles of scrolls and the incredible little illuminated manuscript seen here (not that my photo does it justice - that's a sketch of a dragon in the bottom right corner), so I had my work cut out for me to find items of similar quality!
Fortunately, I'm a hoarder, and managed to find some really quite fun bits and pieces from a number of GW sprues - Empire Flagellants and Wizards, Skaven, Bretonnians etc. - and the Ark of the Covenant from a Wargods of Aegyptus pack.
Once again, these, like so many projects, sat half-finished on my desk for a really long time. What's most annoying is that it only took me about 2 hours to paint them all up once the basecoat had dried! In game, I'll probably only need 3 or 4 of these, but it's always good to have spares.
I didn't attempt a manuscript-style treatment on the open book - my freehand is pretty ropey. I'm particularly fond of the little triptych in the centre, though I kind of wish I'd painted the candles as candles and not just as gold...
Having read through the 80 spells in more detail, and having seen the bestiary section, I came to the conclusion that any warband I run in Frostgrave will probably have to muck around with demon summoning at some point or another. They're just cool.
