The Hobbit – Lake Town House

We started into 2020 with a few articles on Middle Earth terrain, beginning with the Rohan House, and due to the positiv feedback on the overall coverage, I've decided to extend the series and take a look at the Lake Town House as well.

The Lake Town house is a plastic terrain kit in 28mm scale and as such worth a look, not just for players of the Middle Earth games but far beyond. So let's see what is in the box.

Frostgrave – Cultists

The Cultists boxed set was released shortly after the regular Soldiers for Frostgrave, and I got mine as part of the Nickstarter Thaw of the Lich King, back in 2015 and I didn't come around to cover it here, but thought for the sake of completeness I catch up on that.

Frostgrave - Cultists Frostgrave - Cultists

I went for the Level 3 pledge, that included the book as well as the back then new Frostgrave Cultist kit and a few Nickstarter bonus contents, among them a single regular Soldier sprue to mix in.

Frostgrave – Wizards II Female Wizards

Northstar and Osprey Games really spoil the Frostgrave player base, for a skirmisher we have access to much more than an average amount of plastic kits. Most would have been fine with the regular Wizards, but we even got a plastic kit, that I covered last week and then they even added another one, Frostgrave Wizards II, bringing us even more options and most notably female wizards.

You still have access to a broad selection of wizard, covering the wizard and an apprentice each, for 6 GBP per blister pack. This second Frostgrave Wizards plastic kit gives you similar to the first one the opportunity to build 8 miniatures for 15 GBP.

Troublemaker Games Terrain Sets

Troublemaker Games was kind enough to sent me a few samples from their range of plastic terrain sets.

Who are Troublemaker Games? They are a small wargaming studio offering multiple products, among them nuns with Guns and artillery pieces in 28mm. But that is not all, they hosted a few Kickstarter and Indiegogo campaigns to finance the 6mm terrain range, we'll take a look into today. The range is available through Vanguard Miniatures, who carry further small scale miniature and items.

Oathmark – Goblin Wolf Riders

After covering the infantry kits of Oathmark, today we have the opportunity to show the first cavalry set of the range - Goblin Wolf Riders. These were released only a few weeks ago.

Oathmark - Goblin Wolf Rider Oathmark - Goblin Wolf Rider

If you're not familiar with Oathmark. It is a project by Osprey Games and Northstar Military Figures, with Renedra covering the casting. The full name is Oathmark - Battles of the Lost Age and it is going for a 28mm mass combat range, with rank & file regiments and a few characters. I haven't had the chance to look into the rules yet.

Frostgrave – Wizards

Northstar and Osprey Games did land quite a hit with Frostgrave, and with the second edition coming up later this year, I thought it would be a good idea to catch up on some of the available plastic kits - beginning with the Wizards plastic kit.

Frostgrave - Wizards Frostgrave - Wizards

The Frostgrave range already covers a broad selection of wizard blisters, covering the wizard and an apprentice each, for 6 GBP each. But to give you more flexibility in building and equipping your own wizards, they released a plastic kit covering 8 miniatures for 15 GBP.

Warhammer Underworlds: Beastgrave – Hrothgorn’s Mantrappers

Following up on the Wurmspat, we have the second Beastgrave warband for this week. This time from the Ogor Mawtribes, Hrothgorn's Mantrappers.

Warhammer Underworlds: Beastgrave - Hrothgorn's Mantrappers Warhammer Underworlds: Beastgrave - Hrothgorn's Mantrappers

Hrothgorn's Mantrappers and the Wurmspat are the penultimate warband wave for the Beastgrave season. With the introduction of Beastgrave, the price tag went up a bit from 22.50 EUR to 25 EUR. This warband covers 6 models, Hrothgorn the Ogor himself, four gnoblars on three bases, a trap and frost sabre. The models are spread across two grey-blue sprues, along with a card deck and assembly instructions. It seems that with Beastgrave the sprues aren't offered anymore as kits without the underworlds content, the warband boxes are listed among the entries of each army.

Warhammer 40.000 Adepta Sororitas Battle Sanctum

Games Workshop revisits the Sector Imperialis terrain range for Warhammer 40.000 and adds a Sororitas themed building to it - the Battle Sanctum.

The Sector Imperialis building and ruin sprues were introduced along with Kill Team and came with multiple boxed sets. I've covered the Basilicanum back in 2018 from that range.

We have duet of warbands from the Beastgrave season this week, beginning with the Nurgle Rotbringers, the Wurmspat.

The Wurmspat and Hrothgorn's Mantrappers are the penultimate warband wave for the Beastgrave season. With the introduction of Beastgrave, the price tag for the warband supplements went up a bit from 22.50 EUR to 25 EUR. This warband covers 3 models, two of them look like Putrid Blightkings and the third is a sorceress. The models are spread across two green sprues, along with a card deck and assembly instructions. It seems that with Beastgrave the sprues aren't offered anymore as kits without the underworlds content, the warband boxes are listed among the entries of each army.

Bolt Action Centurion Mk III Heavy Tank

This is a review, that I was really looking for, as that tank is simply a must have for myself - the british Centurion tank! Warlord Games added the main battle tank to their range as part of the Korean supplement.

Bolt Action - Centurion Mk III

The Centurion was a successor of the cruiser tank line, with prominent ancestors like the Cromwell or Comet. These were proper tanks, but were no match to the heavy guns, the Germans could put into battle. So one of the requirements for a new, heavy cruiser tank, was that it had to withstand a hit from the feared 8,8 cm gun. They didn't solve that by giving it thicker armour, quite contrary, with 76mm the first prototypes of the Centurion Mk I had much thinner plates than a Churchill (101mm) or later Mk VII and VIII (152mm), but it was highly sloped, creating an effective thickness far above. Something the Russians brought into WW2 with the T-34 and was later picked up by others, like the German Panther tank.
