Frostgrave: Ghost Archipelago

Recommended Posts

It sounds like:

  • hulls in the 4-12 inch range would be useful.
  • basing figures on pennies, nickels, or washers (smallest possible bases) might be wise. I.e: the better to fit on cramped deck space. 
  • those little wooden plaques from Michaels or Walmart wood crafting sections might be very useful for the basis of hulls.

   The author of G.A. just post sm thoughts on how the solders are set up for G.A. and how they differ from Frostgrave.

It looks like there will be some new interesting strategic choices to make.

So going by this interview with the author, it looks like there will be "boats", but there won't be "ships" ::D: (unless used simply as terrain):

If you take a look at Werner Klocke's Freebooter miniatures, you will find a lot of small boats, Pirates, Sailors etc.

Not the cheapest but many good stuff.

The Dreadmere expansion now also has a raft.

If that comes out in retail or in metal I will certainly get those.

 

I need a landing site for my Conquistadores...

Here is a video review of the GA rulebook.  A nice overview of the rules and what's new and what's different:

My book has arrived and I've been unsuccessful in locating a forums or site that discusses FGA.

pcktlnt-  Lead Adventure Forum has a dedicated Frostgrave/Ghost Archipelago section that is frequented by the author.  

There is also a Ghost Archipelago Facebook group.   

 

 

And I picked up my book this past weekend!   I've already started to cobble together my first crew. :)

I just joined the Facebook group this morning after I posted here. I picked up some art decorations that I can definitely use for terrain. ^.^

I've also been staring at the bestiary information and planning my Reaper November purchases. No warband yet.

Yeah, I’ve been busy digging though my Bones 2 & 3 Kickstarter boxes looking for candidates to fill out the Bieastiary ranks.  :).

...And wishing Bones 4 was going to be delivered a lot sooner than it is, because there’s some great usuable beasties there!   ::P:

Right?  The  "Lost Valley" expansion is perfect for Ghost Archipelago.

I'm going to dig out my D&D pre-paint Drakes to use as Saurian Stalkers in the meantime.

      @malefactus sent me some old Games Workshop plastic night goblins, and instead of putting them together properly I decided to stick the heads on the bodies of some Frostgrave plastic gnolls.
       

       
      There's another one but he's badly unbalanced (in more ways than one) and keeps falling over.

      My wizard Malak and his apprentice Grubb for my Frostgrave team. The wizard is Xi-Han is from GCT's Bushido game and then his apprentice is Lunk.

      This guy came with a bigger mini that is supposed to be a mutated him that I'll need to paint some other time.

      Fairly happy with the hat and mushrooms and frog. should have doen something more for his mustache though. It looks ok in person at least.

      Not super happy with my snow base results this time.

      Grubb here might see action as his alter ego Lunk from time to time so his base is just a stone base.

      Most of their crew is done as well. I'll get a group shot when they are all done. (Including the replacements for my lone casualty in our first real game.)

      Here are some of the finished crew I have been posting in the WIP thread. I also made some islands, just using MDF, pink foam, and gloss mod podge for a basic water effect. 
       
      The figures are a mix of Bad Squiddo and Wargames Foundry. I have an eye on a few Reaper figures for wardens and Heritors. 
       
      I am trying to make more of an effort with basing. Have been making a mix of shoreline bases, sand, planks, then jungle/green bases. Will then mix those up on a few models.

      Managed to do more painting today. The assassin is by North Star. I was aiming for a lighter palette, rather than a ninja. I think I need to go back in and highlight more. 
      The knight is mainly fireforge, templar body, cloak, and scandi infantry head. The arms are from the Oathmark elves set though. 
       
      They are just based on 25mm washers and will add some texture, foam rocks, and snow effects to both bases once grey base coat has dried. It takes ages to get a consistent coat on the washers  and that and the hole in the middle are the only downsides to using them.

      Howdy,
       
        Mostly Reaper this week, but here is the odd man out...

      P.S. Look! There they are... what did I tell you?
