You must gather your party before venturing forth... Warband complete!

Greetings all. 

This post is pretty long overdue, as I actually finished them off over a week ago. There doesn't seem to have been a great deal of interest in the Frostgrave project though. We'll see if that changes, as I intend to delve deeper into the game.

Despite arsing about with it for what feels like forever (but wasn't really that long to be fair), I've got my warband finished:

They're mostly made up of chaos thugs and led by a couple sorcerers, but I did include a couple of marauder wood elves that fit surprisingly well thematically.

I'm claiming that the warband is finished now, but if I'm being honest, it definitely isn't. I've still got a big pile of chaos thugs and warriors that would fit nicely, and there is plenty of room to upgrade or change soldiers as the campaign progresses.

Speaking of campaign games, my good buddy Alex and I will be beginning a fresh campaign tomorrow night, so I'll hopefully get some pics and words up following that.

In the meantime, comments are welcome!

  1. Are you using rules from The Lost and Damned and Slaves to Darkness?

    1. Nah using the Frostgrave rules, check it out if you haven't already! It's got a real old school fantasy vibe

  2. Great work brother! The Oldhammer community approach to Frostgrave with the original approach has reignited my interest in the game (I've got the book already).

    What would you say of the game itself. Is it for weekend beer & pretzels or can you also manage a game during weekdays evenings?

    1. Thanks man! Frostgrave is a fantastic game. It's easy to pick up, and you can really do anything you like with it. You can play a game in an hour or two, and the scenarios really add a bit of depth to it.

  3. Lovely old minis with an even lovelier paint job on them. Your purple tone on the robes is very warm and I am rather envious of the shade. How did you accomplish it?

    1. Ta very much! Believe it or not, they were all done using army painter quickshade. Brushed on for better control, and hit with some good old dullcote to take the sheen off.
