My daughter and I have been taking part in a Frostgrave campaign for a while now though I haven't said too much about it. We both have really been having fun with it and we've slowly been working on expanding our warbands. When I first started playing I was using glass beads to represent treasure but I decided I needed to make some actual tokens instead. Here's the result of my first attempt.
|Your typical assortment of fantasy treasure items... plus a keg of ale.|
The stack of coins and the treasure chest are Hirst Arts pieces I grabbed from eBay and painted up while the other three are scratch built. Nothing too fancy but I really like how they pop on the table. These were done when I had first gotten into the game but since my daughter started playing as well I decided to make another set that were themed for my second warband which is led by a goblin witch.

This set were a lot of fun to make and I really like seeing them on the table. The two groups of mushrooms are made from epoxy while the dead spider is a Halloween party favor, all hot glued onto some bases. Of course once I'd done these I was itching to make some more, especially for my daughter's werewolf warband. After all, everybody loves bacon, right?
These were some HO scale pigs I'd picked up for a Battlefield Evolution scenario I was going to run years ago. I'd based some on washers but never actually done anything with them until now. Some epoxy on the base, a quick coat of paint plus a wash and voila! Instant pigs! I'm particularly happy with how the snow came out. I don't have any snow for basing so I just painted the base with brown and then dabbled on the white paint to create a patchy effect. I'm also going to make her another one that is just a pile of bacon for a special treasure token but I haven't had a chance to put it together yet. We have Frostgrave this weekend so I'll have to see what I can do to remedy that this week. And maybe I'll even try to get some pictures of the game. It's been a while since I've done a battle report but we'll just have to see how many players so up on Saturday.
