Frostgrave


Frostgrave Summoner Wizard Warband

Just realized that I have not taken any pictures for my Frostgrave game since I played them couple of years back. I recalled I played the entire campaign and left only the last scenario which I did not managed to complete. Its been a long time for Frostgrave… (*Kris, if you are reading this, are you keen to adventure again? Ha ha) Anyway I played the Summoner Wizard in Frostgrave. I believed there’s already quite a number of new campaign books since I left off. Last read, I do recall there was a 2nd edition coming, has it? Just did a google Frostgrave 2nd edition, its scheduled for June 2020. The Summoner wizard design was design with a middle eastern theme, so I recalled when I started I wanted to do a warband with the similar theme. The henchmen were from Gripping Beast, Arab Spearmen and Archer plastic box sprue. The metal crossbow men were from Gripping Beast, Andalusian Crossbowmen. The sculpt style and theme fit my Summoner wizard seamlessly. For the treasure hunter, one was from Gripping B

Christmas Weekender 2019

It's December 2019, only 4 weeks 'til christmas and the year is nearly over. So what's cooking in the remaining weeks until 2020?

Frostgrave: A Sword and Sorcery Adventure – Part 2

In the second part of my Sword and Sorcery tale, I've taken on the dwarf. Somehow the model just wanted to be painted and in my head the picture of a grumpy looking, but otherwise in a good mood dwarf emerged. The pose had something stealthy with the slightly bent posture, which is why I […]

Frostgrave: A Sword and Sorcery Adventure – Part 1

Rekamark was not a very impressive city, but anyone who wanted to go to Felstadt found themselves at one of the last halfway civilized outposts of mankind before entering the ruins of the cursed city.    "Rekamark," Balthasar said to his apprentice Achibald, thoughtfully folding his arms.    "You will never find a more wretched […]

Frostgrave: Zombies

Since I intend to play a necromancer in Frostgrave, I might need some zombies sooner or later, which will be awakened by the master and his apprentice. As luck would have it, Chaosbunker boss Dennis had a few Mantic Games zombies left over and I always wanted to see what you could get out of […]

John's Orc Blood Bowl Team/Warband

A little over a decade and a half ago, before this blog was even started, my friend John was living in Calgary. Once or twice a year we'd get together and when we did we'd usually play Mordheim - which had been introduced to us by another friend - who was by then in Edomonton, CVT (CVT had run the Mordheim league here in Saskatoon and continued to come back and run tournaments at the Hero's Gambit convention in Saskatoon for a year or two after he moved to Edmonton).At that time, the Games Workshop store in Calgary apparently had monthly auctions to ditch old stock. John went to these. Once or twice he picked up something. One of those times he got a Tomb Kings starter army (or... battalion box?)- BEFORE they'd been officially released (it was an accident, the dude auctioning it off picked it up out of the wrong pile in the back, or something...?). Another time he scored a bunch of old metal Orc and Goblin and Hobgoblin Blood Bowl players. Oh man, there were minis in there that I'd seen in White Dwarfs and ha

August Hobby Update

The last few weeks have been good hobby wise.  I came home to find Alan had painted us up matching forces for Mortal Gods so we have been enjoying that a great deal, pitting his forces from Megara against my polis of Melos: Naturally, all the hoplons are hand painted Alan laments are rare setback on the battlefield Reilly and I rediscovered our Blood Bowl treasures and had a few games. 1 win to him and 1 tie but lots of fun all round. Now considering playing in the upcoming MOAB tourney... A painted a couple of fun things from 1st Corps: There is a black sheep in every family! I just had to have this priest for an Objective marker in Mortal Gods And I found out there will be 2nd edition Frostgrave released in June next year, which is very exciting! https://therenaissancetroll.blogspot.com/2019/06/frostgrave-second-edition.html And now I'm off on a holiday to Norway for a few weeks - cant wait!

Ghost Archipelago - #7 The Gateway.

According to locals the Chappata live in a mountain city high where the only why in is through a large gate in the bottom of the mountain, all the parties have to do is push open the gate and enter the city, where a bounty of treasure awaits.The Chappata are peaceful people and not known for their warrior skills so they should be easy to push aside.The winner in today's outing is the first player to push open the gate.The Gateway is defended by three warriors of the Chappata people, however a further warrior will join the defenders for every 18 rolled on the initiative table. They won't engage the parties until anyone gets within 10" of the gate or they are fired upon.Littered along the road to the temple is various piles of treasure, the players will gain rewards for collecting them, but this is a race to the gate..... Remember guys a race.....Turn one and it would appear blood feuds run deep, as the freebooters open fire on the Atlantians who are sandwiched on the main highway between to the two opposing fo
