Tombs of Darkness from Ziterdes

I’ve got quite a lot of fantasy minis so it was easy to fall for Frostgrave as I can pick and choose from what I already have painted or at the most find a suitable figure in the box of unpainted fantasy minis I have.
It is worse when it comes to terrain. I’ve got dungeons covered quite well but ruined cities… well, there is a hole in the collection there. I guess I could find most of what I need at the club but I would like to play this at home with the kids also.
So, when the local shop had a sale the other week I found some stuff from Ziterdes that will work well in what will be my version of the city of Frostgrave.
The first Ziterdes stuff I finished are the content of the Tombs of Darkness pack-  a two-pack of prepainted tombs for around €10. The terrain from Ziterdes is made from a prepainted lightweight and durable foam-material. Easy to work with and close to weightless.

I painted the tombs in the same way as I did the flagstones of Soerabaja Harbour, using household Flügger paint - Grey Umbra as base and drybrushed with Lava. I have a cunning plan….

  1. Very nice. I picked up Frostgrave as well, with about the same plan as you. And I will use the cultists for Kings of War as well.

    1. Thanks!
      Multi-use is the thing, so the snow will have melted completely in the part of the city where we will play.

    2. Yeah, I'm thinking the same, or sprinkling salt on the table and then pouring it off when done.

      Still, I need some more terrain.

    3. Remeber not to drool when playing then... :-)
      You'll see more terrain here in the next couple of weeks. I've invested in more Ziterdes and Amera and will hopefully scratch-build some buildings

    4. Exactly my idea as well ;-)

      This doesn't bode well, if all 3 of us think alike...

    5. I never drool on the table, mind you.

      I might drool on some sexy tank models though...

    6. Hmm. this could bode very well, actually.
      We're three against one... I guess Thomas will have a difficult saving throw coming up.

      Sexy tank models... Okaaaay :-) That should be Thomas' Girls & Panzers tanks, then?

      They needed very little effort to turn out great. Best kind of model, that :-)
