Into the Breeding Pits

With this new supplement for Frostgrave, players can lead their warbands into the vast network of catacombs, sewers, and dungeons that run underneath the Frozen City. It was in these dark confines that the ancient wizards known as Beastcrafters experimented on living creatures, creating strange hybrids and deadly monsters, many of which still roam the forgotten passageways.

Terrain Corner – River Sections

You’ll always get those moments with bits of terrain when you look at them and think that’s not that special, but I guess it’ll do.  I used to be very much like that and it’s been more about getting stuff on the table and playing games than the elements behind the scene like terrain.  But as some of you may have seen in my other articles I’ve been slowly trying to up my game.

Terrain Corner – Display Board

With my other Terrain articles I’ve been aiming for an end product that has some use when gaming.  So the Trees and Asteroids have a purpose, the piece this time doesn’t really have a purpose in any game and it’s all for show.

When your out doing demo’s it’s really nice to have something for the mini’s your using to sit on.  Whilst a nice glass cabinet is great, it’s a bit much to drag around to places that I’m just doing a demo at.  After seeing Mark’s Armies on Parade post it reminded me that my current display board was not only a little small for my expanding force but very bland.  It’s just a piece of a very old Zuzzy matt dry brushed and stuck on some blue foam.

Forgotten Pacts

I can’t beleive its been nearly a year since the Lich Lord Nickstarter, and now coming soon we will see another Nickstarter Campaign, this one for the forgotten pacts

In this supplement for Frostgrave, players lead their warbands into the northern reaches of the city, exploring the ruined temples of the Frozen City to search for the lost secrets of evocation – the art of summoning demons. While the lure of such knowledge is great, few wizards have ventured into this region as it is overrun by barbaric northern tribesmen who have descended from the hills in their own search for treasure. Marking themselves with demonic sigils, many of these barbarians have aligned with ancient powers discovered amongst the temples. Along with a host of new scenarios focusing on the exploration of the temples, the book also contains new treasures, spells, soldiers, and creatures that can be found amongst the ruins.

Sword for Hire

Sellsword is9781472818416_1 a digital-only mini-expansion for Frostgrave: Fantasy Wargames in the Frozen City. This expansion gives wizards the option to hire a captain, a special type of soldier, to help lead their warbands. Unlike other soldiers in the game, captains may choose their own weapons, have a few special abilities known as ‘tricks of the trade’, and gain experience. Of course, such experience and versatility comes at a price, so captains are going to want more than the retainer given to most soldiers – they want a cut of the treasure!

Also included in this expansion are three new scenarios designed to give soldiers more of a chance to shine. All feature some type of limitation or obstacle to spell casting that will force wizards to think a bit more about how much they rely on their magic.
