Osprey Publishing: Fantasy Frostgrave Rules – Enter Wargame Vault Best Selling Top Three

Posted on July 30th, 2015 under , , , , , . Posted by

Osprey Publishing has just released the discounted electronic version of their recently released Frostgrave rules. I have bought the hardback book from Northstar Miniatures and was very pleased with the purchase! So if you’re interested in taking a look at this new exciting skirmish fantasy wargame by Osprey Publishing make sure to check out the discounted electronic version at the Wargame Vault.
Amidst the frozen ruins of an ancient city, wizards battle in the hopes of discovering the treasures of a fallen empire. In this fantasy skirmish wargame, each player takes on the role of a wizard from one of ten schools of magic, and builds his band of followers. The wizard’s apprentice will usually accompany his master, and more than a dozen other henchman types are available for hire, from lowly thugs to heavily armoured knights and stealthy thieves.

Wizards can expand their magical knowledge by unlocking ancient secrets and may learn up to 80 different spells. While individual games of Frostgrave are quick and can easily be played in an hour or two, it is by connecting them into an ongoing campaign that players will find the most enjoyment. The scenarios given in the book are merely the beginning of the limitless adventures that can be found amidst the ruins of the Frozen City.

Miniatures Wargames Magazine wrote, “For me, Frostgrave has a real flavour of the old school, fun tabletop adventuring that was prevalent when I first got into D&D… Recommended – especially for the money.” The Garage Gamers blog says “… it looks to become THE fantasy skirmish campaign game, and rightly so… It is a must have for any fantasy gamer!”

In their play-through review, Wargames Illustrated, the world’s leading wargaming magazine, concluded, “… I urge those of us who remember the AD&D adventures of our youth, have ever read a fantasy novel or seen a fantasy movie, to seek out a copy of this tome and sally forth on the road to adventure!”

Ratmen

Posted on July 29th, 2015 under , , , . Posted by

Last week Frostgravearrived and I’ve been reading it and the kids and I have been getting pretty excited about trying it out! So of course I spent my time painting something completely not useable in the game… (unless they’re wandering baddies… I haven’t gotten to that section of the rules…). The arrival of Frostgrave and the current reading the kids and I have been doing about the medieval world has got me thinking about all sorts of fantasy and medieval skirmishing using A Song of Blades and Heroes or Song of Arthur and Merlin or Lion Rampant (and soon Dragon Rampant!)…
A few years back my friend John gave me all his old Skaven miniatures  – figuring he’d likely never play Warhammer Fantasy Battle (for which he had collected them) again. I rebased a bunch of them for Hordes of the Things a few years back, and from time to time have been painting some of the ones that never got painted – and repainting some that had been – to put together a small warband of them that I could use for some sort of fantasy skirmish game. Recently John as been making grumblings about checking out Age of Sigmar and getting back into fantasy skirmish gaming. I thought I’d try and get a second warband of his old Ratmen finished to give back to hims and see if I could get him to try out A Song of Blades and Heroes

(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version):

Batch #1 (for John) – these are all old Games Workshop figures.

Some Character figures for his warband a leader and a Poison Wind Globadier… not sure what to classify the latter as… perhaps a magician? Give him one of the new spells out of Fightin’ Fungi – something that can be thrown and has an area effect…? I think there was a fireball or fireblast or something similar that would fit the bill.

Ratmen… I think these may have some from HeroQuest…?

More ratmen – these came from the first ever Games Workshop  plastic fantasy figures – the one where you got 10 Dark Elves, 10 Wood Elf Archers, 10 Dwarf Warriors, 10 Skaven…? Was there something else in that boxed set…? Does anyone else remember the bos set I’m talking about? It was kind of useless – who would want all those things together. John was running the Wizard’s Corner at the time (Saskatoon’s original game store) and would order boxes of them in – open them up, keep the skaven, and sell all the others separately…

More of the same, but converted to slingers.

Batch #2 – additions to my own Ratling warband.

Wizard/Poison Wind Globadier-types

Hero/Leader with a Warplock Jezzail and a Ratling Pack Master (with the whip)

Ratlings with Polearms

Ratlings with sword and shield (or sword and dagger)

Light Skirmishing Ratlings
I’ve added some pictures of my complete Ratling Warband (so far…) to the 28mm Medieval and Medieval Fantasy Gallery (scroll waaaay down, past all the Humans…).
Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

I have some Halflings to finish up on my workbench… then I might get back to some 40K stuff… or stuff that might actually be useful for Frostgrave…? Or I might work on some more historical Medieval stuff…? I have a feeling soon I’ll be working on a few English Civil War figures I have to try out  Flashing Steel – as the kids and I will be on to that era of history in a few weeks…
