Frostgrave from Osprey seems to be the flavour of the month and attracting quite a lot of attention (noticed it even got it’s own board on LAF – I wonder how that works…). After listening to the chaps on Fools Daily ranting about it I finally caved in and ordered a copy – only £10 off Amazon for a pretty hardback you can’t really say no. Should arrive early next week.
A few other very notable reviews from the always awesome Delta Vector blog and Anatoli’s Game Room would suggest it’s great fun, lots of flavour but not quite the Fantasy Skirmish game everyone seems to be waiting for. Well, sounds good enough for me.
I was setting up some recently painted miniatures for photographing today and realised – “Cor Blimely Gov! These would be perfect for a Frostgrave warband.”
What do you think? All are Demonworld 15mm Thain (Barbarians with a Celt twist) from Ral Partha Europe. Or pick up their Blighthaven warband and get all the cool character models in one fell swoop. I decided on the tartan after re-reading some Slaine (of 2000AD fame).
I don’t talk about rule sets very much – I leave that to the likes of Delta Vector – but I do collect a lot of them. I mean a lot. Mostly Fantasy and Sci Fi, Skirmish and Big Battles. I think I’ll leave the focus of this blog on miniatures though.
