Frostgrave/Frostgrave:Ghost Archipelago interest

6 posts in this topic

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.

      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....

      As I pondered my choice of wizard for my new monstrous Frostgrave warband, I slowly realized there was only one choice really.  I put his witch, cat, and cauldron into he shopping cart around Halloween time.  I knew I needed one for any legitimate Halloween display of miniatures.  But it had sat unpainted in the blister for a few months while other things took priority.
       
      Back to the frostgrave war band.  So I chose witch as my wizard's school and proceeded to fill the ranks of soldiers with monstrous members like the horned hunter and a medusa archer, couple of tieflings, and even giant rats as warhounds.  I think I am meant to paint up this witch as the wizard.  She comes with a cat that I'm putting on the base with her and a cauldron that I am not.  The cauldron will make a great prop when playing pathfinder and I already have a place for it in the birthday party adventure I have planned for next week.  However the cauldron needs to sit on a fire or bed of coals or something.  I realized I do not even have a campfire token so that became part of this project.
       
      okay, so first I grabbed two 20 mm bases and glued some small pebbles and gravel to them like so:
       

       
      Next I had to put the witch and cat on a base.  I cut up an old bones base to fill out the bare base with flagstone shapes and glued down more gravel to fill in some of the gaps.  Finally everything got some black primer.
       
      Witch and cat:

       
      fire pit:

       
      The black Cauldron:

       
      All of this happened over the last couple of days.  Have not had much chance to paint since Friday night since we currently have house guests, but still managed to just start to lay down base coats while everyone else was entertained by part of a movie.  Out pale saffron on the Inside of the cauldron and emanations, the cats eyes, the center coals in the fire pit, and the bat in the witches hand.  No, I am not making the bat yellow.  Honestly did not realize it was a bat until I got the yellow on it.  Now I know.
       
      also mixed wreath green with dusky skin to start on the witch's skin.  Oh and also some vampiric skin for the witches hair and for a quick dry brush on the rocks in the fire pit.
       
      Here is where things stand right now.
      Cauldron

       
      Witch

       
      Fire pit.

       
      I would love some ideas for colors on that witch besides black and green.  I can't seem to picture anything else.

      I'm putting together a monstrous warband for frostgrave and I did a quick paint of these three bones today.
       
      77148: Damien the hell born wizard as my apprentice
       
      77036: medusa as an archer
       
      77198:  barrow rat as a war hound.  This last was a super quick paint as I finished the other two.
       
      Dressed the gorgon/medusa with knife and paint, so she's Sfw.  Still, I'll spoilerize the pics:
       
       
      i want to include the horned hunter I did as well in this warband.  Still not decided what to use as my wizard and other band mates. I want to try to keep an even gender ratio, but there are very few monstrous women and the few that are out there have a hard time keeping their clothes on.

      So I finally got tired of this guy, and basically finished him up, put him on the base and called him done....

      Tried a few new things with him, such as adding an off white to the base color of his skin for high lighting, as well as the work on his "Skirt"
      Overall, I am certainly happy with him as a piece to be used eventually in a Frostgrave campaign...
      Thanks for looking!
