Battle Report – Rangers of Shadowdeep – ‘The Swamp’

  At the base of the broken stairs Bron and his companions find a huge and spreading pool of water which rises up slightly into dark marshlands ahead. Ruins jut from the water and the stinking mists of the Shadowdeep are everywhere. Shapes begin to move in the distance as the Rangers take their first steps into the magical blight that has swallowed their neighboring kingdom.

Adepticon, the long road back.

My Frostgrave Warband for tomorrows Adepticon CampaignAdepticon 2019 starts today over in Schaumburg, IL and now mere 2 hours away on the west side of the greater Chicago area.  Now its 17th year its gone from a couple hundred person Games Workshop fan event to the largest top gaming convention in the US. I have been to 11 of them starting in 2007 I made it 10 years in a row, until I burned out. Letting things that shouldnt really have bugged me , its just folks playing games after all, bug me. As the convention grew so did  my expectations and when growth and expectation failed my own litmus test, I got pissed. I returned in 2017 just as a spectator with my kids , doing some shopping, marveling at the displays and games and doing the take and paint. Last year we didnt go at all. This year was to be my 12th year, I bought a badge, and signed up for the Frostgrave, day long Campaign event "The Great Wyrm" run by my favorite tourney organizers whose games and events outside Adepticon since 2

Dwarven Torchbearers and Necromunda Ratskins

A couple odd and sundry items coming off the workbench today...First a couple of torchbearers from Lead Adventure Miniatures. these guys have actually been sitting on my desk, finished, for a couple weeks now... and it looks like one got dinged in the process and chipped the paint on his torch! Bother!They're fun little minis. I'm not ENTIRELY sure how they got back on my workbench, when it was cleared of all fantasy projects some time ago... I think around the time John dropped off some figures he wanted me to paint for him for Frostgrave I was doing some organizing and putting away of things and happened to look in one of the Dwarf drawers and noted how very, very close these two were to being finished, and I plucked them out and put them on the workbench to finish off. I might have had some daft notion of painting up a handful more to use as a Dwarf war band for Frostgrave... but then quickly discarded that notion, as I have far too many other things I'd rather be painting and I have no shortage of ready-t

Frostgrave Necromancer Warband – Part 1

A new project always has something magical about it, and in the case of Frostgrave that's literally the way it is.

After the flood of complex and lengthy fantasy […]

Oldhammer (A)Elves

I rummaged around my parents' attic and dug out some treasure.These Wood Elf Waywatchers were among the very first metal miniatures I ever bought. Playing Warhammer as a kid was super hard because everything was so expensive, especially those shiny blisters, so I had to find very good reasons for investing that much of my pocketmoney. So picked these fine Gary Morley sculpts to be the souvenir I brought home from a family holiday to Venice in '96 or '97. Cheeky...The paint job is much younger ('05- or '06-ish) and all I did now was to touch up the rim of the base and give them a fresh coat of varnish. I guess they will do fine next to modern AoS miniatures. Might find some use in AoS Skirmish, Warcry or even as D&D or Frostgrave characters...

Frostgrave, Frostgrave Wizards , Sprues Pics and more

Obviously if you been following me at all the last 4 months , I have been obsessed with Rangers of Shadow Deep an offshoot of big brother Frostgrave. Not really having anyone to play Frostgrave right now , Rangers was the perfect companion as its a solo game, Considering I am playing in day long Frostgrave event coming end of March, bout time I get some games and right after I finish my current Rangers mission expect some solo Frostgrave gaming right here.The plastic wizards are out sculpted by Bobby Jackson of Reaper Miniatures fame, they just released the sprue pics in the current Northstar news letter. I blew the sprue pic up to 300 dpi as its not the best resolution but you cant least get better close up before it blurs out.Looks like a pretty good kit, Ill have to get hands on and see what I can build before any final judgement. Overall I am super impressed with the Osprey Plastics, my favorite plastics since the old GW daysBoth the Wizards Kit and the Wizards Conclave book are available now at Northstar
