Throwback – Lead Belt Nottingham 2010 – Day 3

Friday started quite early, at 9 a.m. we went for a quick shopping at Mantic, as some of us wanted to buy some Kings of War armies. In my case, it were a few zombies (I really like the versatile use of the ghouls and zombies by Mantic) and the Dwarfen kings council. On top we got these Mantic messenger bags with personal dedication by Ronnie and Alessio.

But that was just a brief stay at Mantics, as we had the second part of our meeting with Warlord Games. I had the chance to meet John Stallard, who was tied the day before (he participated in the Games Workshop shareholder meeting). It was really great to meet another former high ranking manager. John participated in the same battle report, we mentioned yesterday with Ronnie.

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.

A miniature Odyssey – Priest of Hades

The preparations for my Summer Project for Mortal Gods are in full swing and I hope to finish my bonus round before the first of July, if possible. I have already taken the first step on this path - the first priest of Hades is ready and I might add another one over the course of time.

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.

Gaslands – Nothing to lose

But there is a lot to be won in May in the various Gaslands Facebook groups. It's remarkable how much enthusiasm and creativity the Gaslands community shows and in May there are several competitions and raffles you can participate in.

I will also try my luck this month and take part in at least one of the competitions. Let's see if fortune favors the men from the Chaosbunker this month. But before I go into this in my next article, I would like to give you a short overview of the current competitions and raffles.

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.

Gaslands – Roadblocks

To make my future Gaslands table more interesting, I have set out to create a few stylish terrain pieces in a Wasteland style. Originally I wanted to make the track boundaries more visible, as well as corners and obstacles.
