Making Frostgrave Arcane Circles

Once again, Frostgrave‘s Ulterior Motives gaves me another opportunity to make some interesting terrain. This time its Arcane Circles. In this post, I’ll show three different types I made. The first is the simplest. Its just two circular pieces of XPS foam glued together. A table hot wire cutter makes it super easy to produce these discs, but you can …

Making Pits and Craters

If you play Frostgrave with Ulterior Motives, you’ll need a pit. If you play Rangers of Shadow Deep you’ll need some fly holes. I play both, so I decided to make some of these important holes in the ground. For a fly hole or crater I started with a piece of 3mm PVC sheet and beveled the edges with a …

But Shifting Lands …

My club got onto Mantic’s recent club promo and I was lucky enough to score myself a Kings of War: Vanguard Basilean warband. When I got it home I greedily tore open the box and started gluing figures together. Stopping only occasionally to giggle with glee. The box contains 15 miniatures and multiple copies of their accompanying game cards. There are …

Making Gloomhaven Treasure Chests

Actually, the title is a lie. This isn’t a post about making treasure chests … more like buying treasure chests. Because, why fumble about with craft when you can buy great, affordable, minis from the Wizkids Deep Cuts range. In fact, between the Deep Cuts and Nolzur’s Marvellous Miniatures ranges, you can also replace most of your Gloomhaven monster standees …
