Today I hosted Dilvish, Chaoswolf, and my neighbor Doug, for what we hope to be a monthly Frostgrave campaign...
It was, from my perspective, an interesting learning experience, as I lost first my wizard, then my apprentice, and 6 more of the 8 soldiers I started with.....
Dilvish and Chaoswolf took more detailed notes than I did, so they will be able to tell the story better, but I went through quite a few D20s, and they all deserve to get hit with sledgehammers.....
At least my wizard and apprentice survived, and I didn't lose anyone permanently, but I will be without 1 archer, and 2 thugs next game as they heal....
And I only got away with 1 treasure...
I only got 90 exp, and just to gain a level, I had to choose the Laboratory option for my base to break the needed 100 points to gain a level....
I also discovered that My spell choices were not the best, and as it was the first game, the others consented to letting me change them....
But it was a lot of fun, and hopefully I will do a bit better next game....
off to Koplow for a pile of D20.....
And whatever Dilvish's wizard's name is, He needs to append "The Sniper" to them, as he found a 48" line of sight with minor obstructions, and killed 2 people with Bone darts.....
I have yet to assemble a complete figure from any of the Frostgrave sprues of plastic parts, so I thought I'd start slow with a head swap. Enter Anval Theicedamned, Evil Warrior. His head is just begging to be chopped off.
I figured I'd swap one hooded head for another so I chose what appeared to be an armored hooded head from the cultists sprue and after chipping away at Anval's neck area, applied the super glue and commenced to hold it in place for several minutes. Yes, there is a better way, and it involves drilling and pinning things. Bah, details. It eventually stuck and I decided on a paint scheme.
Much metallics of various kinds. Sadly I only have a few. And a non traditional skin color. This guy with no visible face lends itself well to an exotic or alien race. Also, there's some nice detail on that axe. I decided it must be some kind of magic weapon, perhaps of the air, storm, lightning element kind? So I applied an unusual color and effect on the blade. Sparking snow and yes, alien goo. Also tried to give him a lightning tattoo in alien goo on the back.
Here is the finished piece. So how convincing is the new head?
A view of the axe
I finished this guy up on Friday; he's an old Ral Partha thief (if i remember correctly, he came in a 2 or 3 piece blister pack with some of his fellows; I'm pretty sure I've got them around here somewhere).
My usual tabletop paintjob; I hope you like him.
I'm still experimenting with my pictures; which version looks better?

A mini I finished up last week while I was procrastinating finishing another mini (procrastination can be productive as long as you do something else that needs to be done other than what you are avoiding).
Still need to base him; just need to find the right base for his Official Tre Manor StanceTM.
