So, last year some of us ran a bunch of Frostgrave Demos at ReaperCon.  They seemed to go over fairly well.  I originally wasn't going to do something of this nature again, as there were some other games that I wanted to get in and the demos monopolized my time pretty well (to the point that I had to do a speed shopping trip on Sunday before the Reaper booth shut down).

 

However, I seem to have taken a blow to the head and am seriously considering doing something similar this year.  I have a couple of ideas that I am trying to judge interest in.

 

1)  A straight up Frostgrave tournament.  That was what last year was supposed to be, but it was mostly a bunch of demo games with me or buckyball teaching the game.  The advantage to this is that people can sign up to battle and I don't have to babysit the table.

 

2) Frostgrave: Ghost Archipelago is released on Sept. 19th.  Last year, Reaper was kind enough to set up an island themed table from a previous Warlord tournament for us to use.  Thematically this would be perfect for Ghost Archipelago.  Plus, with the new pirate faction at ReaperCon this year, it seems like a no brainer.  The drawback is that the rule will only have been out for a month or so, and people might not have time to get warbands together (especially when trying to finish contest entries).  Plus, it seems with a new game, it would most likely tend to be back to doing demos rather than a tournament.

 

So what I would like to do is to gauge interest in either option.  What say you all?

Need to see what I will be doing, but I plan on bringing my warband at the least...

I'll have my warband with me, too. I'm definitely down for some FrostGrave.

 

As far as Ghost Archipelago, I probably won't have the rules yet.

Well this is assuming that I buy the rules right away (very probable).

I'm interested in playing again, either way. If I know far enough in advance, I can volunteer to contribute terrain again, if needed.

Probably not interested in a tournament, but I'd be up for some pickup games. I might even have some terrain with me.

 

And I'm playing in Skull & Shackles right now, so I might be able to scrape something together for Ghost Archipelago.

      I decided to get going on my entries for the Frostgrave Triple Sprue Challenge.  The idea is to convert the three mainstays of a Frostgrave warband; Wizard, Apprentice, and Captain.  You could only use a single sprue each from the Soldiers, Cultists, and Barbarian kits.

      First up is Vismar the Obsessed, Wizard

      He's never quite been the same since he found that staff made from the remains of a Magister of the Frozen City.


       
       
      Next is the Apprentice, Cymon.

      He's obsessed with that one simple hat trick. It would be more impressive if he summoned the rabbit rather than the Undead.
       


      Up last is Sir Brodes, Captain

      A life-long retainer to Vismar, Sir Brodes often regrets his family's pledge to the House of Vismar....much more often since they came to the Frozen City.

      Hello again.


       
      Some time ago, during a game of Bolt Action, one of my friends told us about a campaign he was planning, focused on a fantasy setting using the rules of Frostgrave.

      As he and some other friends were working on a SciFi setting simultaneously, I thought of the possibility of creating an army that fits both settings – Fantasy and Sci Fi.


       
      But what kind of figures would be able to fit into my setting? Looking around, I got aware of the Blood Vestals by Raging Heroes. They seem to be perfect for my army and so I acquired a group of them and also got me some bases with ruins – currently I don’t have got the time to make them all by myself.

      There is only one problem – they are partially clothed …


       
      RATED N for NUDITY



      RATED N for NUDITY II RATED N for NUDITY III
       
      So … though a young woman in all her natural beauty might be quite a sight for sore eyes, I figured them to be a bit unfit for my idea. I mean - we are talking about Frostgrave. Frost. Cold. Quite Cold. Who would risk to get a cold by running around naturally dressed? So – best way for me to work with them might be to unnude them.


       
      I looked around a bit further, but couldn't figure a way to make the figures look like I wanted them to look like. To be honest - I don't even have an idea what I want to do. Bravo, Monsieur. You're quite something.


       
      Then by chance, I stumbled over the at concepts of NieR: Automata, which is a sequel to the critically acclaimed game NieR and includes some pretty artwork and figures. I already know the game, especially for the "AB" Diskussion regarding the clothing of main character 2b, but still never really thought about the design. Hm. Not bad.



       
      I somehow like the lolita concept. But it is quite modern, so there should be a change in design to make it more fantasyesque.
       
      Also having been a fan of the Valkyria Chronicles franchise since I came to know it (some 6 years ago or so), I figured that the clothes of Selvaria and Aliasse from the franchise would make a good addition.


       



       



       





      Sexy Lolita clothes, white and blue-white hair, red eyes and dark grey and golden colors? I am currently thinking about how to bring all those concepts together – but I am sure that the outcome will be great :-D Haha.
      If anyone has an idea on how to put all that stuff together, I'd be thankful :-D

       
      For the skin I took a picture from the internet, which I really liked:


       



      Quite a thought.


       
      I checked my bits box and found a fantasy figure I will use as the central figure for my army – the Crimson Empress or Witch or whatever. She will be the figure on which I test how the colors work together. Looking forward to seeing her finished …



       
       
      Well then - Let's start and see where this ends.

         I recently finished the Dagon Statue terrain pieces from Bones 3.  Nothing fancy, but a series of drybrushed layers.

      So I got my cut of Bones 3 from the person I went in with, and decided that the first thing to get done would be Bonehenge....
      Started by airbrushing with Grey Liner cut 50%, Then Stynylrex Black, then Stynylrez Grey, cut 50% as a Zenithal....
      I then remembered how mad I got at myself for not scraping the mold lines on my DDS 2 terrain, and got busy....
      Was pleasantly surprised that only the 2 upright pieces with lintle stones had anything at all noticeable....
      Then the Black (Cut 50% this time!) and Grey were redone on those 2 pieces....

      Pretty much plan to follow the same paint scheme that I did for my DDS 2....
