FG: The Wyrm Hunts

Working through the standard frost Grave scenarios Byakhee JP & I ended up with the Woyrm Hunt. Bascially, six treasure chests, each potentially unleashing both a random wandering monster and the Wyrm of the title.

Hobbron is now well behind Thaddeuas in terms of magical power – JP has been playing away from home at the H’ford Games Club. (NB: Now clarified he rolled up some different war bands for the club)
So I dtermined to get away with as much treasurea as possibsle.

JP was having nothing of that idea, so summoned an Imp. This outflanked me, so had to be dealt with by a Push spell.

Whilst on the other flank JP’s barbarian moved in, so I had to send my two Treasure Hunters to shore up that side.

My two thugs carrying treasure made good their escape as the rest of the warband covered their retreat.

Meanwhile, JP’s Ranger climbed up to the top of the archway in order to get the treasure chest. I idly commented that, it’d be ironic if I used a Push spell to flick the Ranger off of the top.

Guess what, I for once won the Initiative roll…

…and then proceeded to successfully cast Push, and flick the Ranger 19 inches off of the arch way. JP informed me later that the Ranger was dead (they’re dead Dave, they’re all Dead).

Meanwhile a wandering monster (demon) chewed up one of JP’s X bow men.

And then the Wyrm turned up, only for Thaddeus’ min ions to destroy it in short order !

The Treasure Hunters however, killed both a warhound and the barbarian at the cost of their own lives, the rest of the warband escaped though. A partial victory.

FG: The Keep

Byhakee JP & I had a couple of games of Frostgrave yesterday, the first scenario was “The Keep”, which featured four teleportation discs with treasure on them…

My treasure hunter got on to one of the discs to steal the treasure…

And BOING ! ended up on the opposite side of the table…

The Blue K-nigit advanced, and so I decided to tell him to Push off.

And away he went.

back whence he came.

Whilstb a massive scrap occured in the middle of the table. My warhound killed his warhound, but my thugs came off worse against Rangers, Barbarians and Treasure Hunters.

And a summoned Imp, nearly stopped my other Treasure hunter from getting away with the loot.

But with a little help from a friend.

A summoned Wall, finished off the game in the centre.

I’d lost, and indeed lost an archer. I’m still getting used to the game which is very different from Mordheim despite its similarity.

Then we had a second game…

Hereford Wargames Club

In the course of running our Big Games, JP & I have been contacted by several local gamers based in and around Hereford (UK).

So rather than rely on haphazard and sporadic e-mails, we offered our blogging skills to get a site up and running.

So we did, or rather JP did nearly all of it.

Here it is !

Yet more scenery

In-between firing parish clerks, having my car go up in smoke (fly wheel failed, burnt out clutch), I’ve been reorganising and “right sizing” my figure collection (AKA Lead Mountain Range).

As such a found an entire tray of very old Citadel (and others) dungeon scenery and small items of terrain. Like 25 treasure chests…

Some of these items were 80% complete and just needed updating a bit so in between cracking open dusty boxes, I’ve finished them off.


Sign post for Mordheim, gallows, campfire and pot, grave, and a small boggy pond. Always useful to have and often good for inspiring scenarios and acting as features to capture.


Another sign post, a manticore gargoyle on pillar and a mysterious candle on pillar.

Both of the later two items have already inspired me to write up some simple Mordheim/Frostgrave scenarios.

More Scatter Scenery including scarey crows

As those following JP & I’s efforts at our Hereford games, you’ll know that the local tradition (well Bromyard at least) is for Scarecrow celebrations, and it is well knwon for people to steer well clear of scarecrows on the table of our games lest the Twiggy Mommet protesters turn up.

Unp until now I’ve left it to JP, but when I saw these items from Ristuls Market I decided to get them. They arrived quite quickly in good packing, and with only minor flash easily cleaned off.

Being thin and light resin items, I found some metal washers, and greenstuffed them on, to ensure they were not top heavy.

Painted up, they’re about 40mm high (foundry Swashbuckler for comparison), `and look the biz. So no escaping scarecrows in AVBCW, or any other appropriate game. 😉

Now I’d bought another piece of scenery at the same time as the well I’ve previously painted up, so I dug that out, and had some cunni8ng thoughts on a mini campaign for Frostgrave/Mordheim. I’d already undercoated it and part base coated it, so managed to crack that our in the last threee days.

A throne fit for a Liche …

I didn’t want to go for black, as it would be too obviously, and when JP popped round, he agreed a nice dark red leather effect would be good and help the item stand out on the table.

If anyone knows the manufacturer of this throne, please let me know.

And the final grave, obviously a useful marker for potential grave goods.
