Home made construct for Frostgrave

I did not have any construct miniature and as I did not fancy them enough to order one, I toyed with the idea of making one for Frostgrave, so I grabbed a wine cork, universal glue and kitchen scissors and hastily make one.

Then spray primed it.

And here you have the result. A bit dark and reddish maybe, but I like how it turned out in the end.

This other figure is also for Frostgrave. It is a thief from Bronze Age Miniatures that I will be using as erm, a thief. Although he could go better as a treasure hunter as well, given his sword and leather armor.

The couple together so you can see the scale of the construct.


  1. It's a fantastically clever scratchbuilt-sculpt showing some movement and character. I can almost guarantee you that this creature will be the talk of the wargaming table, or at the steakhouse dinner table! Well done! BTW, sometimes hasty results in a winner.

  2. Hi Jay, thank you very much for your kind words. I made it hastiliy because I didn't take seriously, but it turned out ok in the end.

  3. Muy bueno BlackSmith, te ha quedado fenomenal

    Pensaba que iba a quedar peor por ser el corcho poroso... pero no. Ha quedado fenomenal

    1. Muchas gracias Iván. Yo creo que la porosidad del corcho hace que parezca más a madera.

  4. Haha that is great! Inspired work :)

  5. That's a pretty impressive bit of creativity right there.

    Well done!

  6. ¡¡Fantástico!! una gran idea y un gran resultado. Felicidades.
