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?

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.

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.

      Here is a miniature i am working on.

       
      My plan is to paint it like a queen from a playing card. I am thinking of calling it a queen snake.

      Another batch from the Frostgrave (or Mantic, repacked as Frostgrave) Undead set.
       
      I needed some ghouls for my D&D game so painted all as ghouls even though some are supposed to be zombies I think.
       





       
      Similar to the skeletons. very crisp models and great fun to paint.
       
      Thanks for looking and C&C is very welcome.

      So having jumped from Frostgrave to D&D in a rather swift way I decided to "normalize" my Frostgrave minis.. namely "less snow, more greens.."
       
      So here's the Thief from Frostgrave:
       




       
      Thus I am trying to make better bases but I still some way to go it seems.

      Here's another recent paint.
      It still goes along with the Reign of Winter AP theme, though I don't know if the Adventure Path has a Polar Bear or not.
      This figure represents an example of "It looked better in my head."
       
      I tried following some pictures of polar bears on the web: It seems some are very yellowed (not necessarily in the shadows), and some are very white.
      So, I started with a base of 50/50 Golden Blonde/Linen White, and successively lightened it up to white, and left the darker color in the shadows.
      I thought the fur quality on this BONES sculpt is very good, so it lent itself well to a mix of drybrushing and picking out individual strands with the brush.
       
      I tried something different for the snow on the base, just some puddles of white glue that I then painted with Ghost White and Pure White.
       
      C&C Welcomed.

      Who doesn't love Halflings in Mittens?

      Wait, that's not the name of the set?  Why not?

      Alright, it turns out they're actually "The Winter Adventurers" from a recent Midlam Miniatures Kickstarter.  As always, Midlam delivers nice old-school designs with newer sculpting methods and details.  I think quite highly of the company.
