I like to listen to podcasts and You Tube videos while I paint and Squidmar Miniatures recently posted a fun video involving a bunch of different commission artists working on the contents of the Warhammer Underworlds Goblin Warband. This is a collection of nine really characterful miniatures, and I reckon you can build a decent Frostgrave Warband out of the set.
I've had the Gloomspite Gitz (aka Warhammer Goblins) Endless Spells kit in my shame pile for some time to paint up for Frostgrave, and one model in particular struck me as being useful; the Scrapskuttle Cauldron. So in advance of grabbing the Warband, I've built and painted the Cauldron!
It's a large magical cauldron on a set of spider legs; how bloody cool is that! I'd originally intended to use this model for a Frostgrave scenario; a magical creature which if defeated would generate a treasure token which would generate rolls on the Potions table, and potentially allow the wizard or soldier which defeated it to drink "in game" and gain the benefits of an immediate random Potion.
The paint scheme is very quick and simple:
- Legs: Skeleton Horde
- Cauldron: Abaddon Black, with Moot Green and White Scar Dry Brush
- Metalwork: Leadbelcher, Magic Wash (1:1 Nuln Oil and Medium), Dry Brush Moot Green and White Scar
- Smoke: Biel Tan Green Wash, Moot Green and White Scar Dry Brush
