As with all of my projects I've been less than productive in regard to Frostgrave. Probably more so. I haven't exactly been prolific but at least I have made some posts recently so self high 5s for me. I really intended to do more with the frozen city and even play some games (Ha Ha!) but between ignoring all things creative and being distracted by other shiny unpainted piles of lead this one fell by the way side.

Gull is my second character for the Frostgrave setting and actually has a place in war band I'm planning. If you are wondering I enjoyed painting him much more than the treasure piles. During the cool model search that proceeded the project a Reaper Pirate Captain and Cabin Boy set caught my eye. I had no use for the peacock captain but the ship's boy was a really interesting figure and screamed treasure hunter. Poor little guy is probably the dog's body for the whole ship's company and his back is loaded up with a pick, shovel and probably a fridge of boat drinks for Captain Hook. He even has a map in hand so he ended up drawing nav duty as well. The highly versatile Gull is rather tall but boyish with a fresh face and a lithe figure. If he stays with the ship and continues to live a hard sea life I'm sure he would become quite a dangerous man. Or would he?

The Reaper cabin boy is very nearly stock. The only change I made was adding a fur cloak made from green stuff because his outfit was very light for such a cold place. The cloak would probably be inadequate but Gull is used to inclement weather at sea and stays busy digging for treasure to stay warm. I wanted to draw up a nice map of Frostgrave on his parchment but after multiple shots in the dark and repaints the city remains an abstract mystery; It seems art imitates life.
