From AdamC - Hagman the Sharp Shooter (5 Points)


Another Frostgrave entry this time a "Soldier" or adventurer as I prefer to think of them. This particular one is a Marksman (or he could work as a Crossbowman, both are soldier types in the original Frostgrave)


I put him in green leggings and shirt sleeves of the sort an 18th Century Jager or a Rifle regiment soldier of the Napoleonic wars might wear.  I made his outer garment light blue, then a heavy wash followed by a white/gray dry brush to create as sort of cammo a smart warrior would wear in a snow covered land.


I name my Frostgrave soldiers and this fellow is called Hagman after the sharpshooting poacher from the Sharps novels.

He's a great figure Adam. His face has loads of character and he certainly looks the business in his winter camo, crossbow up, ready to feather some fierce reindeer or some poor fat sod in a red suit clambering around on rooftops. ;o)
5 points for you. Well done.

  1. Welcome to the snowy waste of Frostgrave. A terrific addition to your force. If he gets tied of working for lesser wizards and want to work for an enchanter let me know!

  2. Great painting work. I´m very interested in the snow effect, because I´m planning my own band for "Frostgrave".

    1. Its pretty simple I take my base cover it with white glue (I use modge podge these days) mixed with some brown paint. Then some sand or 'gravel" with a few aquarim gravel stones. Then I use my Army Painter snow flock and some army painter tufts finish things off (I think I used "Highland Turf" in this case). Some times I put a little static grass on befor the snow if I want to get the look of snow covering grass. Next time I am basing I will try and get some step by step photos and post them on my blog Juan.

  6. Interesting figure. The hat and face remind my of US Cavalry for some reason.

  8. He has a distinctly "Old West" feel to him--I had to look twice at the crossbow. A really great character!
