Twelve months, 20,- Euros – Part 2

February is known to be a bit shorter than the other months, so you would think that mentally there would be a bit of pressure to finish painting planned minis. Well, maybe it was like that at the beginning, because I finished the last group of skeletons for my Mortal Gods Army of Hades pretty quickly. This surprised myself so much that I just tried to finish the remaining group of zombies and managed to do so, which completed the army.

With 300 points for the Hades faction, I was satisfied. Now it was time to completely assemble another faction so that I would no longer have to play games with ugly proxies for Mortal Gods.

Frostgrave Ghost Archipelago – Tribals

After covering the Crewmen, the next Frostgrave Ghost Archipelago kit are the tribals we're going to cover. Besides the very obvious temperatures and climate as a difference, in Ghost Archipelago the crew follows a heritor instead of a wizard, and these tribals can be used either as allies or enemies of those treasure seekers.

The tribals are a generic plastic kit, catching the idea of tribes, native to the jungles of the Lost Isles and isolated from the known world. They are heavily influenced by different cultures from our world, like the Polynesian Samoans or Maori, with some North American and African influences as well.

Dino’s Annual Summary 2020

As regular visitors of the Chaosbunker will have noticed, there have been rather few articles from my hand lately, which is why it's time to approach the year 2021 with a little more consistency and regularity. For many it is certainly no surprise when I say that 2020 was rather mediocre, but let's take a look at it together...

This was 2020

Basically, the year didn't start out bad at all. I went into my ongoing projects with a lot of motivation, wanting to both start a new gang for Frostgrave and finish the one I'd already started.

Pizza, Beers and Frostgrave 2nd Edition

We had a gaming night on wednesday. Florian brought some fine beverages from Frankonia, and I prepared some self-made pizzas for the night.

Using the NY Pizza Dough recipe by Kenji Lopez-Alt as usual, I made a veggie pie with spelt flour for my wife, and a rustica pie with pepperoni, sausage, red onion, corn and bell pepper and a meat lover with pepperoni, beef and sausage. A proper base for some light drinking over the evening, covering Hopfengarten Bamberg Rauschkönig, Überquell World White IPA and Reckendorfer Keller-Bier.

A miniature Odyssey – The Gates of Hades…

…have opened and the last block for the Summer Project 2020 is finished. Since I already had some practice with the skeletons from Warlord Games, it didn't take long to paint the last six of them.

Frostgrave – More Characters from Felstadt and the Lost Islands

So we have build quite a couple of Frostgrave kits over the last few weeks, and we have a lot of spare bits to toy around with. As did Dino with his Sword & Sorcery adventure. So let's see.

This is just what's left from both first wizards sprues and added a crewmen and a soldier sprue, as a base.

Frostgrave: A Sword and Sorcery Adventure – Part 6

"But Dino, you haven't even finished your other warband" I can hear you say and yes, of course you are right, but with the second warband I am able to meet a few more goals.

On the one hand I got these two ladies from Nick Eyre of Northstar Military Figures, under the premise to paint them and leave the pictures to him. I am happy about that, because the female wizards' box is really snazzy and it was no problem to create a witch and her pupil from it.

Frostgrave: A Sword and Sorcery Adventure – Part 5

DRAGOOON! Who hasn't heard that in a fantasy setting before! Dragons belong to the classic fantasy genre like fries to ketchup and coincidentally my daughter has a toy that is just that: a dragon.

Frostgrave: A Sword and Sorcery Adventure – Part 4

Due to my private commitments, the Frostgrave project has frozen a bit at the moment, but I'm currently trying to pick up the thread again and have changed a few little things on my warband that I simply didn't like.

The modifications are limited to the visual appearance only. First of all, one of the goons urgently needed a more natural pose. The stretched out arm, which made him look a little bit like a theatre puppet, was cut off and trimmed in such a way that I was able to reattach it in a slightly bent position. This gave the model the impression of a more tense posture and it now really looks as if he would take a swing with the club.

Frostgrave Ghost Archipelago – Crewmen

As for the Frostgrave review series, we're jumping from Felstadt to the Ghost Archipelago for the first time. Let us take a look at the Crewmen, the tropical pendant to the regular Frostgrave Soldiers. Not following a wizard, but a heritor.

The crew men are designed as a bunch of corsairs, wearing wide, pirate style clothes and weaponry you would find among freebooters. A strong contrast to the fur and pelts of "regular" Frostgrave.

This boxed set follows the same setup as the other Frostgrave plastic kits, it provide 20 models in 28mm scale spread across 4 plastic sprues of 5 each. And as the other Frostgrave warbands, two Renedra sprues with 10 round bases of 25mm diameter each.
