Mini Update: A Dwarf Crossbowman for Frostgrave – old or new?

Admittedly it was a while back that I was looking to take part in a Frostgrave tournament at my local club. Other things got in the way but I did begin the process of gathering a warband together for the purpose (half the fun really).

Forget lead piles, it’s the plastic ones that are taking over: Conan the Board Game

I’ve enjoyed painting up quite a host of the ‘plastic playing pieces’ that I got with Zombicide Black Plague (see related posts).

I’ve dabbled with all popular scales. 6mm, 10mm, 15mm, 25mm, 28mm, 32mm. They all have there strengths and weaknesses of which I will not bother to go in to here – there’s plenty of debate on the forums to that effect. When I threw myself into 15mm as my ‘scale of choice’ I sincerely felt … Continue reading 6mm, 10mm, 15mm, 25mm, 28mm? Torn. And the Collector Syndrome
