Had out latest game today! What a battle!  It was a real nail-biter against my arch-nemesis, Gregorius...and then the Monarch (T-Rex) entered! 

 

I’ll have the full edge-of-your-seat report, and photos, in a day or two! ::):

Ok, as mentioned, we had our latest, and third, game of our campaign this past Saturday.  We played the Drichean Cages scenario from the core rulebook, in which we had to free prisoners held by the local population.    My report is now posted. Enjoy!

 

       "...As the fight was ending, Marny, the Warden, ran up to help.   While the others hurriedly cleaned and sheathed their weapons, she went over to the prisoner , and taking him by the arm, tried gently but urgently, with soothing words, to get the quivering, sobbing, man to stand and go with them.
    They all knew the Monarch was very close now. In fact they could see him on the far bank of the stream less than 100 yards away.   "Quickly!" Lord Fortrywn said to his Niece.    The Heritor looked around at the carnage.  It seemed like there was no one left from Gregorious' crew. He surmised that they were probably all out of action, or ran at the sight of the Monarch.  But he was wrong..."

The monarch was a "gift" from my warden casting Beast Cry.  Always happy to help my fellow heritors.

My favorite thing to see in this thread. I'm really enjoying your session reports, they really scratch that Ghost Archipelago itch when you can't play yourself.

Thank you, Rat!   I'm so glad to hear you are enjoying the reports!   You won't have to wait long for another, as we play again in just over a week.

Even though he was battered pretty good, Skorri still managed to pen a report from the last adventure.  Hope you enjoy it.

Amras entered Skorri's room, "Good morning Sir, I see you are finally awake.  We are heading to the nearest port."  Seeing Skorri's confusion, Amras adds, "Let me fill you in on what happened once you.....ummm.....got injured."

Wow, what a great battle report, Knabe!    I'm glad to find out what was happening down your end of the table.    I'm also glad to hear someone else was having trouble with their archery.  My Hunter never hit anyone, and I think my Archer only connected once (maybe twice).  Maybe there was a strange magic emanating from the old temple that affected arrows...

 

I'm looking forward to see what happens when you and Griffin face off against each other again (Maybe Saturday...). It will be epic. :)

I (that is to say, Griffin) am hoping to be on the far side of the table from Skorri. :blink:

 

 

 

That can be arranged... ::D:

 

You need to start posting a report too, Rob.  Even if it's just a paragraph, or only some of your photos with captions.    The more the merrier!

     We played our fourth game this past Saturday.  A scenario called "The Island of Floating Hulks", based on a solo scenario, "The Floating Hulk", that was published in Wargames Illustrated.

 

    What a game it was!   Nine long turns of carnage and glory.

 

     "...Frantically, the Crew-woman began to paddle, but the creature had seen the small craft and sped towards it.    Arbyn set the oar down and, standing, brandished her sword.  She had been sailing most of her life, and was not afraid to face any monster of the sea with a good Elven blade in her hand. She smiled, and braced her feet in the rocking craft.   The Octopike disappeared a few yards from the boat; then with a shower of spray 8 powerful tentacles burst from the waves right next to the tiny vessel, and shot forward to wrap themselves around it's next meal.  But Arbyn, daughter of the sea, was not prepared to die that day..."

 

     "...A shout behind her caught Gwyn's attention, and turning she crossed the deck.  Looking up, she saw one of Skorri's Archers up in the crows nest of a small derelict sloop right behind the blue-hulled ship.  He seemed to have found something, and was calling to his friends on the larger vessel behind.  Slowly, the Hunter raised her bow and notched an arrow.  Determinedly, she drew back the bow, despite the fiendish pain it caused her.  Gwynwater could feel a trickle of blood going down her back,  but she did not waiver.  A brightness shown in her eye for a brief flicker as she sighted down the shaft at her target.  "Let it fly true." she whispered to herself, and released the arrow..."

      Kislev lives on in our hearts forever. 

      I've continued my theme of building the Frostgrave: Ghost Archipelago Crew with a Steppes feel.  The majority of these are built using bodies and arms from the Crew kit, with some Empire/Mordheim heads and other outsourced bits.



       

       

       

       

       

       
      The last batch wound up being more generic Pirate types.

      My most recent painted pieces are the Tribals from Frostgrave: Ghost Archipelago.

      I really liked the spirit mask options.  My grandmother had a set in her spare room, and I was fascinated with them as a child.

      The Cyclops is actually a 3D print by Valandar to celebrate the successful funding of his Titans of Legend Kickstarter.  The Cyclops stretch goal in the FG:FA Nickstarter wasn't hit, but the file was released the same day.  I figured he would fit in with them.

      The club's next Ghost Archipelago campaign starts this coming Saturday, so I am taking advantage of the day off to make sure that I am ready.  We are starting with new crews, and my new spell caster (warden) has a spell to create a little piece of blocking terrain, so I decided that I had better make a few today.  I am hoping/expecting that 6 of them should be enough. The parapet is supposed to be 2" long and a half inch high, so I pulled out some 50mm cavalry bases to stack stones on.  
       
      Step One:
       
      Glue on stones and wait for things to dry.

      Seeing this map of the 100 Acre Wood on my Facebook feed made me think what a neat scenario map it would make.  This got me thinking how cool a Pooh based Crew would be for Ghost Archipelago.
       

       
       
           I immediately thought of Reaper’s Werebear, and Wereboar for Pooh and Piglet as the Heritor and the Warden.
       
           And coming up with an anthropomorphic Tiger, Owl (Bones Black Owlbear?), and Rabbit shouldn’t be hard.  For Eeyore I thought I could convert a Minotaur.  
       
      Anyone actually make a Weredonkey or Werehorse?
       
      My real sticking point is Kanga and Roo.  Does anyone make an anthropomorphic kangaroo?

      Among my first minis finished in 2019 are the Crew from/for Frostgrave: Ghost Archipelago.  I did two themed builds, plus a generic sailor who was left over.
       
      The Warriors of the Steppes.  They were done with a Cossack theme, and they all use official FG Crew bodies/arms, with heads from Warhammer kits (Chaos Marauder Horsemen, Empire Archers, maybe another)


       

       

       
       

       

       

       

       

       
       
      The Warriors of the Desert.  They were built entirely from the FG Crew sprue.
       

       

       

       

       
       
      The lone generic Crewman Crunch.
