img_9520

There will be a new Nickstarter for Frostgrave starting on Monday next week called Forgotten pacts and it will include a new plastic boxed set of Barbarians. Here are pictures of the box art and of some of the figures ( As far as I can tell the figures are metal ones not from the box.

These figures cry Wildlings in the GoT setting to me ! So definitely a box I have to get my fingers on! I found another figure you can get from Northstar. Looks like Brienne of Tarth to me:

The Barbarians should be available in November.

Glover versus Lannister the first battle on the refurbished terrain!

The other day we had a small Dragon Rampant battle between the House Glover and House Lannister over a bridge crossing one of the tributaries of the Trident. Here is the deployment:

Sorry no more pictures, as we got carried away while gaming! It was a Lannister victory.

The first halfmen unit

I started work on the first unit of my halfmen army . It is a militia unit. The unit is supposed to be made up of farmers living around the town of Gelsen-Kirchen. A town famous for its church  ( Kirche means church in german). It is lead by a very famous old warrior who fought many battles against the yellow Kobolds of Dort-Mund. In these battles he lost an eye and a leg but he still wants to get back into the fight.                            His name is Ass Hauer :

I started painting them yesterday so not much progress to be shown here. I will post new pictures as soon as I finished the first figures.

Here are the refurbished TSS tiles

So now I finished redoing the first batch of my terrain tiles. 8 river tiles and 11 hill tiles. There are a lot more tiles to be done as you can see on the pictures as I mixed old ones with the redone ones to build the table you see on the pictures. There are some more river tiles, open grassland tiles, track tiles and some settlement tiles to be redone or newly build over the next coming months . Here are the pictures !

Hope you like what you see

Just realized that I didn’t put up a before and after picture:

The flocking of the river tiles is finished

I finished the flocking of the river tiles yesterday. On some pictures the PVA hasn’t dried completely, therefore it is not translucent everywhere . The grass tufts were made with the flockbox, the other flocking materials are from woodland scenics and Noch.

The next step will be trimming the reeds and painting on the gloss varnish on the river proper.

Dwarven Forge Terrain video about Miniature wargaming

DF have done a very nice documentary about miniature gaming.

The subject of the documentary is the owner of DF and is largely a biography with the kickstarter (remarkable drama free and smooth) providing the backdrop. A very nice film about our beloved hobby . I enjoyed it.
