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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Weekender – Home Office Week 2

We're closing on week 2 in the home office. So what happened since the last weekend update? We had two reviews this week, supported some local stores, stocked up on candy and craftbeer, ordered at three miniature companies / FLGS that are currently missing out on sales due to closure and cancelled events.

Frostgrave: A Sword and Sorcery Adventure – Part 3

My little Sword and Sorcery project is going into the next round with a bit more routine from today on. In the coming weeks updates will always happen on a Frosty Friday (if there are any).

In this article I would like to introduce the puppy of the bunch. In terms of game mechanics, the combat dog is an excellent gap-filler when you start with a warband, where you want to spend your entire budget at the beginning of your campaign, as he only costs a measly 10 gold.

Outlook for 2020 – What’s on Dino’s table…

2019 is history and, as it always is, every new year begins with a series of excellent intentions. For me, however, the list is very short. I could make a lot of great promises to myself, but if we're honest, we already know that this is a wasted effort in the hobby anyway. But as a german saying goes, " Realizing is the first step towards improvement".

For this reason I looked at my unpainted minis and I realized one thing in particular - there are way too many. So the only good intention I have made for this year is not to buy any new minis and to get rid of old stuff I won't paint. The only exception is at the beginning of the year, because I always wanted to have an Ogre team for Blood Bowl and it was already the plan to get the Orc booster for the second season of the Journey of the Maulers project. So my whole shopping list for 2020 looks like this:

  • Orc booster for season 2 of the Maulers
  • Ogre team
  • Ogre booster

Christmas Weekender 2019

It's December 2019, only 4 weeks 'til christmas and the year is nearly over. So what's cooking in the remaining weeks until 2020?

Of course the project of Abaddon's Black Legion will continue, as it is the most compact of the Oldhammer / Midhammer / Retroprojects and therefore should be the easiest to finish.

Dino(‘s) Crisis 2019

Two weeks ago, on November 9th and 10th to be exact, Crisis took place in Antwerp, hosted by the Tinsoldiers of Antwerp. Dennis had already visited Crisis many times and delivered a good coverage in Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 of his article series. For me, on the other hand, it should be a premiere, both for the event and for the city. Therefore you'll only get a subjective view of the weekend from me.

I've been to Belgium before, but that was more than 20 years ago and back then it was a visit to the capital Brussels. We arrived one evening sooner in order to save ourselves as much stress as possible on the trip there, but also in order to take some impressions of the city with us. We also took part in a small tradition that I didn't know it was bound to happen until I was right in the middle of it.
