Moving on from the Gatehouse, Bron and Jauriel discover a huge open area dominated by a Fountain with a statue of St Emilia. A huge group of skeletal warriors mills about as darkness starts to descend and the Rangers brace themselves for battle.
I greet you in the humble DwarfCrypt abode!It's a smelly thing today and some dirt and shit will spill out. Ha! No, I'm not talking about the Polish miniatures blogosphere, and I invite you to watch the new wargaming terrain and read about a historical unfortunate who made his life in ... the toilet.Presented today resin toilet comes from the offer of my friends from Grabblecast, who were so nice and sent some of their new products.Price and photos of raw state ---> HERE <----A few photos already live on various social media and I know that you like it as an addition to the battle tables for Mordheim, Frostgrave and other skirmishes.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------A few words about Henri de Valois (Henry III of France).The first Polish elected king, after the infamous escape from his new homeland to his native land, had to struggle with many internal problems. Paris and all of France was plunged in
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

Bron is joined by Ranger Jauriel and her companions to investigate then convent of St Emilia, swallowed up by the Shadowdeep. The Darkness closes in as the companions approach the Gatehouse and make their way into the darkened edifice.
Trumpeter Salute 2019 has come and gone. This was the first Trumpeter in many years where I didn’t run a game which felt kind of strange, but that did leave more time for other people’s games! It was also the kick in the butt I apparently needed to devote a bit more time to gaming, after most of a year (two?) of basically doing squat except watch my gaming stuff gather dust. Among the things I bought at Trumpeter was a pack of Frostgrave Wizards in plastic. I’ve been musing for a while now about mixing up 17th Century English Civil War/Thirty Year’s War figures with magic and fantasy stuff of some sort, and while a lot of things like wands or wizard’s staffs would be easy enough to add to figures with wire and putty, a couple of sprues of ready-made bits seemed like a good plan. The Trumpeter Salute 2019 haul. First three Warlord/Frostgrave magic users on the left, new frogs on the right, chevaux in the foreground. Click, as usual, for larger. It turns out the Warlord plastic ECW
Taking a break from the Eldar to finish off a few things that have been lingering a little too long on the periphery of my painting desk...The Lot of them.Additional Cawdor and Delaque Gangers for the gangs I've already painted...The complete Delaque Gang.I'm not bothering with a picture of all the Cawdor Gangers so far, as I have another batch of them still to finish up...Necromunda Esher Gangers. Actually only four of them are Esher Gangers (three of which I recently picked up from Airborne Grove)- the one I'm using as a leader is actually Mad Donna - a hired gun, and the one in Purple and Green (second from the right) is an old Judge Dredd Perp that I've had forever (and recently stripped and repainted).Preachers and Missionaries from the Adeptus Ministorum. I'm not sure why I based Uriah Jacobus on the rounded plastic base....? I was probably thinking he'd be a "leader" of this lot and needed something bigger... but didn't have a bigger washer...? Or perhaps when I picked him up I was thinking he could be
Huddled in a ruined farmstead, Bron and his remaining companions come across seven survivors convinced the end has come. As monsters loom from the shadows, swords and drawn and the Rangers and survivors make their final stand against the Darkness.

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.

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
With the Watchtower at Tor Varden cleared of the evil Kobolds emerging from the Shadowdeep, Bron and his companions scout a steep pathway leading down the cliffs behind the guard tower. Mustering what provisions they can from the stores of the Tor, they set out immediately on their third mission, this time past the borders of Alladore into the Shadowdeep itself!
Behold! The Bastard’s Blade! Hrothgar and Redd race to the throne room of Barael the Bastard, chasing the shrieking enraged Half Breed. Cornered and furious at its wounding, it turns on both warbands as the ultimate treasures of the War-Mage are revealed!
