Frostgrave the game

It wasn't until later that I realised that one my archers was also badly wounded last time.

So I started the game with 4 knights and 3 archers.

We played the Mausoleum scenario which has 4 treasure tokens place at the corners along 2 treasure per player which had to be at least 6 inches away.
So here is the skeleton guarding one corner. More about him later.
Above is the mausoleum in the centre
So above was my starting position and that skeleton who despite having all range attack I wasn't able to hit it.
Craig blocked my line of sight by casting a fog spell while he went for the first treasure token. Mark on the other side ganged up on the skeleton protecting the treasure token near him.
Craig managed to get the first treasure token but he had moved his dog up towards me.
So I pushed the green and red knights forward to take on the dog while that left my other knight to get the treasure and make a run for it. 
Another treasure token in my sights.
The dog was sent packing so I moved forward with the red and green knight while the other made his escape with his loot.
The other treasure was still in sight but another skeleton had appeared.
There was another treasure token available. Mark and Craig were busy fighting each other and other skeletons that had appeared to block their progress.
However I also had a few skeletons to deal with. 
My red knight was free to go for the treasure but Mark has managed to wound my wizard.  
He died
Meanwhile was trying to get away with another treasure but was caught by another skeleton. Unfortunately he also died.
Not all was lost I still had more men so I managed to get that treasure and get off the board. 

So in the end I managed to get 3 treasure off the board which ended my best so far in the campaign. In the end I was able to rise 3 experience levels and obtain 420 gold coins. For now we are going to end the campaign for now but I will keep the stats cos you never know.

Anyway I want to finish off my dwarf war band.

Frostgrave

Frostgrave

I have been playing a campaign now and on Monday it will be our 4th game.

Its been great. Frostgrave is a fun ruleset. We have just been getting used to our wizards and our spells we picked.

I picked an elementalist and surrounded him with some expensive knights and a few archers.  Of course initially I was outnumbered but as the campaign has progressed as I have just added a few more so that I am now up to the maximum 10 figures including the wizard.
I should have given my wizard and apprentice by now. However I will just wait until the campaign over.
                                    
This is my knights. Unfortunately the red knight was badly wounded in the last game so he misses the next game. In this game you just drop him from your roster and hire another knight. This is what I am gone do that only leaves me with 110 gold coins so I am going to spend another 100 gold on 2 potions of strength. I will give it to the red and the green knight which will them +2 fight for this game only.
                                    
Finally the archers for more shooting power along with my elementalist range spells.

All the figures are mongols from Fireforge.

Hopefully I can screen my knights so they can pick up some treasure. I sure do need it.

Last year

It was a dead loss. Mind should be able to beat last years total.

Not that I have done nothing. Painted quite a lot really.

New armies for Deadzone, Frostgrave and Pikemans Lament.

A few others as well.

Until next time!

When ever that is๐Ÿ˜„

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

Which is a good time to start this up again.

I have not been idle far from it but sometimes other things are more important.

So what do I have planned for next year.

Congo is first. I have the Ngoni tribe to finish.

Musket and Tomahawks

Mongols for Saga/Lion Rampant

Start with them first and stick with them as I get distracted and then you end up finishing nothing. So New Years resolution keep very simple.

W.I.P Vietnam 20mm

Well it certainly looks like that March will be the month of Vietnam.

Also it is mostly just the VC to do plus some American M113's, trucks and the command vehicle to start gaming. I have some NVA sappers but no regular NVA so at some time I need add them.


I am working on the command, AK47's and the rifles just now. Like the American troops the bases need finished but will do so at the end.

More pictures to follow with some close ups.

It's all gone quiet over here

It's all gone quiet over here. Not really.

After pushing the 6mm army for Maurice and completing the Dropzone Commander starter set I changed periods and scale.

Thought I would get stuck in to my Vietnam stuff. Should get some pictures this week as I have just about completed all the Britannia figures. They have been easy to paint and I have completed 62 so far.

Only to tidy up another 30 and all of those will be done.

Then I have probably the same number from the Platoon 20 range.

Well that's the month of March taken care of.
