Frostgrave is what brought me back to papercraft gaming. I discovered Frostgrave about a month ago, and after reading through the book, I became very excited to try to play it. Now I just need to convince the rest of my social circle. I am assembling a "demo kit" and going from there.
For those unfamiliar with it, it's kind of a Mordheim style game where there is this city that was magically frozen for years, and now has dethawed. Players control a wizard running a warband and raiding the ruins of the city for the usual wealth, fame, and magical bits.
I am currently reaquiring my paper mini collection and sorting through what I have to find appropriate models for the warbands. After that, the next step is terrain. I currently am looking at the Ravenfell line from Fat Dragon games, since it has an option for snowy textures. Does any body have any recommendations?
Also, I am noticing a severe lack of humans armed with crossbows in my mini assortment. There is one or two in the Imperfect collections in Dryws gallery, but that is all I have found. The game does differentiate them from traditional archers, otherwise I'd have plenty.
Any help is much appreciated!

Hi! I'm Harry, formerly "Coyotepunc" here on the forum. I am a hobby addict; I prefer papercraft scenery to use alongside my 28mm metal and plastic miniatures, and am not afraid to mix and match my hobby media. I game sci-fi, fantasy, and historical (including Ancients, Dark Ages, Renaissance, and World War II Italy & Sahara.)
I like the art, but the mirrored art and side profile being different than every other mini I have would bug me too much to use.
As an aside, it does make me realize that side profile is definitely a way to go when minis use mirrored art. It makes it less noticeable. I realized during my mini file sort that a T-Rex skeleton mini in one of the early Hoard files is that way. I used that mini every excuse I could years ago without even realizing its mirrored art.
There are actually one or two in the "Frozen City" set that have a more traditional 'face-on' viewpoint, which look great (IMHO).... Still with mirrored backs sadly.... If he did more like that (and with back art) I would be buying up and using all of them!!!
squirmydad: The minis are...out there...

cowboyleland: Thanks to squirmydad for continuing to make the forgotten cool stuff easy to find.

Vermin King: Got to see Jeff Beck at one of those. Pretty cool. Only time I saw Adrian Belew was at a club gig in KC. Now, I am trying to get Mom up and running on Pandora for old country music. It's her first smart phone

Vermin King: I think I have it going now, Barbara Streisand hasn't come up on Willie Nelson in over 48 hours. Back when I was in Cleveland, a disc jockey was formerly with Peter Frampton's band. He set up club gigs for folks

senkosmos: I'm a fan of every artist you mentioned, particularly Jeff Beck (Beck, Boggart & Appice being among my top 3 heavy blues albums, I'ts certainly a pity that Pandora is given you such a hard time to listen to Belew

Vermin King: I then did another search and started a new Adrian Belew station. It did have 'Artist Only', but the Thumbs Playlist would only go to eight songs. If I added a song, it deleted another. I think I now have it fixed. Didn't have that problem with others

Vermin King: Back to Pandora. I doubt that there are many Adrian Belew fans here, but on Pandora he is jinxed. I deleted the radio station since it did not offer 'Artist Only' mode, and the Adrian Belew Radio Thumbs Playlist never existed.

Vermin King: Rant over ... almost. I'm sure I will be back on this later

Vermin King: And Tom Petty is on every station, including Willie Nelson. I like Tom Petty's songs, but not to where I have collected his station, and he certainly doesn't fit on the Jeff Beck station.

Vermin King: And why does the David Bowie station play America and John Denver? Aargh
Jun 7, 2021 16:36:49 GMT -9
Vermin King: I totally do not understand Pandora any more. I changed phones and when I logged into Pandora, my stations were basically wiped clean. Adrian Belew used to have Adrian Belew, King Crimson, Zappa, etc. Now it has only played one true Adrian Belew song

squirmydad: Last year the schools did drive-thru graduations. No overtime, not authorized this year.

cowboyleland: Canada is up to 50% (eligible) vaccinated but we are still not reopening schools. My kid probably won't get a grad at all.
May 17, 2021 6:38:27 GMT -9
Vermin King: Oo, doggies! I hope you get overtime
May 17, 2021 4:22:28 GMT -9
squirmydad: I'm setting up staging and sound systems, running the grad, then striking and rolling to the next one. I'm pretty tired and still have one more week of these. An end of year concerts.

squirmydad: Returning to normal means that for me I'm working every graduation (x27) that the schools and programs are doing this spring, each graduation being on the schools site, sometimes 2 or 3 in the same day.
May 15, 2021 21:06:05 GMT -9
Vermin King: I guess returning to normal is causing things to be very quiet here lately

mproteau (Paper Realms): rag - the best thing to do is to pull the art out of the PDF and print straight from Silhouette Studio. That way you can ensure you have the registration marks you want, and the cutlines all line up. I have a video showing how to do this easily if needed.

cowboyleland: I thought they got rid of all their free accounts, but it looks like they re-thought that policy.

rag: mproteau - The plan is Worldworks' Titan Control. They have the cutfiles but the marks are in the old format - we'll see how it goes.
