Challenge Entry: Cultist and other Frostgrave pieces

This one is big and varied but its all stuff I plan to use for Frosgtrave. First up a bunch of Cultists
First up we have three bad guys looking very intimidating with their big morning Stars
Five Cultist Swordsmen, some duel wielding and two with shields. the Fellow in the centre has a sword and dagger set form the undead encounters set but they look great with him.
Great details on the clothing both front and back. Two of these guys have skulls on their belts.
4 Cultists with missile weapons. I did two with crossbows and two with bows.
The guy in Blue needs a quiver I'll have to fix that at some point. You can see the tendency of cultists to have chains, bones an other stuff.
Lots of guys fight with sword and dagger but sword and axe that takes a Cultist!
Once again the detail on the clothing is really impressive
Cultist Templar with a two handed sword, the face mask of his helmet is part of his pointy hood.
His Weapon is actually form the Frostgrave soldier pack and it works great with this figure.
Spear and shield, I hand painted the shield its not really supposed to be anything just an off kilter pattern that looks odd.
This is a really dynamic figure that is running into action.
The backpack is a nice detail and includes a dagger.
Humans and the undead aren't the only dangers in Frostgrave, the ruins are effectively wilderness and natural animals like wolves wander in from time to time... Most of the time they want to get out fast but sometimes they are controlled by wizards or magical creatures like werewolves. These 4 Wolves were a gift from my friend Rob and they are fine sculpts form Northstar.
I did these wolves using layers of dark gray, light gray and silver gray and a good brown wash and I am really pleased with how they came out.
I had to pick this guy up when I saw him. I'm looking for a fully armoured skeleton to act as this guy once he finishes getting out of his chair. I'm really pleased with how the red eyes came out. The figure reminds me of the Atlantean form the Conan movie so he could also be a piece of terrain too.
There are lots of great details on this throne I kept the colors dark and muted so the skeletons would stand out.

Now something different as these guys are all good guys.

I've been working these Dark Sword Criter Kingdom figures into my warbands since my first game and they are great figures to use.
This Rabbitman swashbuckler makes a great Treasure Hunter with this leather armour and sword dagger combo.
The Blue cape gives him a pop of colour and matches the band in his hat.
A Mouseman wizard or apprentice, I don't know why you would tie a rock to your head but there must be some reason.

As you can see from this angle the staff is not broken just angled so it looked broken.

The Mouse doesn't know he is small he wields a massive hammer and still can carry a shield! He'll make an excellent Knight for a Frosgrave Warband
I kept the shield a simple green as not good design suggested it self to me.
Mouse pirate Arrh Surrender the Cheese! H'll make a good thief or Treasure Hunter.
With that big bag off his (looks like it should have golf clubs) he might make a good mule too.
Another mouse knight this one a veteran of many battles with a well scared shield. One of my favorites of this set.
I gave him some gold on this shoulder pauldrons as a mark of his veteran status.
Finally the Bard a mouse who knows how to party. Not only can he play that lute he is armed to the teeth with not one but two swords..
I went with a softer palette for this guy to offset the brown of his leather armour because a bard should look like a showman.
