Let it go, Let it go!

My eldest Carmen turned 8 yesterday so most of the spare time 
this weekend has been spent on prep for birthday celebrations and other things associated with it. 

Know for Christmas I bought Carmen a set of figures from the Frostgrave range by Northstar miniatures. A pair of young Fire Elementalists who if ahem cough cough were to be painted up in a similar colour scheme would make a perfect wargaming set of Anna and Elsa from the film Frozen.

This has been a father/daughter project we have worked on over January and into this month and we have finished the first of the pair this week.


We cleaned them up (mostly me) and based on some mdf bases I had spare we used my normal milliput as I thought it would look good as snow.




Carmen busy working away. I helped her with the fiddly bits such as lips and eyes. But other than that it was all Carmen :)



I think the base looks quite well as snow. Onto Anna next.

    1. There nice minis and simple but effective sculpts so I feel easier for them to paint.

  2. Any posts like this just fill my heart with gladness, Simon. Carmen has done a fantastic job on Elsa (with a little help from you). She clearly has talent.

  10. The primer glows white on the LEAD mountain tonight,
    not a fingerprint to be seen.
    A kingdom of isolation and it looks like Carmen's the queen.
    The paint choice is howling like this swirling storm inside.
    Couldn't keep it in, Heaven knows I tried.
    let them in, let us see them .
    Be the good girl you always have to be.
    Reveal, don't Squeal, don't let them know.
    Well, now they know!

    Let paint flow, let paint flow!
    Can't hold it back any more.
    Let paint, let paint flow!


    Yeah Ok it's not my best lyrics but with luck you'll get the flow! And remember painting with a princess dress on is the future!
