Frostgrave


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

There’s going to be a Frostgrave 2.0

Joseph McCullough says so. Version 1.0 A casual perusal of Reddit this morning had this line catching my eye: Well, the news has leaked, so I might as well go ahead and make an official announcement.There will be a new edition of Frostgrave: Fantasy Wargames in the Frozen City coming from Osprey Games in June of 2020! Now, as you might have picked up here and there, I’m pretty bullish about Frostgrave, or the original Frostgrave, or Frostgrave 1.0 or whatever. I feel like I’ve definitely made back my investment in entertainment. It’s fun, engaging, and based around simple concepts. I’ve always equated a game of Frostgrave as being “all the fun action its from Dungeons and Dragons without any of that pesky roleplaying to slow it down.” This is probably over simplifying and being a tad unkind to Joe’s great design, which I have been an enthusiast of since I first bought it. With that said, I was scratching my head a bit when reading t

Lelith Hesperax and Dwarf Wizards

The painting pace slowed a bit this weekend. I had to take a bit of a break. I was tiring of the Hellions (and Drukhari in general) so I splashed a bit of paint on a few other things and I even managed to finish up a few of thems Saturday evening! (I often keep a few other things around the workbench for just such an occasion - when I want to paint something but just getting sick of what I've been working on).Lelith Hesperax - a Drukhari named character. Lelith is a succubus of the Cult of Strife.She'll probably end up being used as a "Counts As.." mini in a detachment using the Cult of Strife rules. This may or may not be used in the upcoming tournament. I may finish up one of the regular generic Succubi for the force Finnegan's going to use.Dwarf wizards from Lead Adventure Miniatures. I actually painted the female wizard some time ago, but repainted her dress as I didn't like the colour. It was originally painted blue, but that just wasn't working for me (and besides, I also painted another pair of Dwarf W

End Of The Week - And I Am Reasonably Please (35)

This week I am more than happy with my painting performance. Thirty five figures done and dusted so I am quite content. Admittedly the majority were relatively simple and most were on the small side but a fair amount of work has gone into them so I am not counting them as a half figure.I have a figure that I used as a black elf leader but when I saw these I thought they would do what I wanted. A king queen and a couple of palace guards. The touch of purple is possibly too much but I thought it gave them a nice imperial feel.Every king and queen need a few hench elves. I am not sure about the pointy hats. I did think about doing a christmas game featuring black elves so maybe it will work.Three more of the black tree designs high elves painted as black elves. I have already done a set of these last year but a few more can't hurt. This is not really a black elf but a mage from thr Frostgrave Nickstarter. I could think of no really useful purpose for him before but he seems to fit with the bad guys.I have d
