A new year and a new set of rules. The Frostgrave rulebook was a present over the Christmas and it has been fun thumbing through the pages and getting into the whole scene. Your Warband builds over time, a little like the Blood Bowl that we played and enjoyed so much, last year.
The great thing is that we have been looking at developing a skirmish game ourselves and so I have a selection of models that might suit. However Zombicide Black Plague also landed over the Christmas and there are some lovely models in the boxset that are begging for inclusion.
They would make a wonderful Warband! To start I need a magician and apprentice.
That seems easy enough. Either could act in the roles depending on the nature of the skill set chosen. The chap on the left has that Necromancer feel to him while I imagine the guy on the right to be more of an Elementalist or Enchanter. There are 10 options to choose from with a whole host of exciting spell options. A total of 80 to select from so the resultant character will be very unique. I am loving the sound of it.
The next couple of models also seem to slot into appropriate rolls.
The guy on the left has a shield on his back and has all the hallmarks of an Infantryman while the guy on the right is definitely a Ranger with a bow over his should and quiver of arrows at his side. There are other options that could suit such as Marksman, Barbarian, Treasure Hunter, and others.
Finally we have the three remaining models.
I see the Dwarf as some kind of Thug and then one of the ladies could be a Thief and maybe the other is a Treasure Hunter. Anyway loads of possibilities.
One thing is for certain - they will need the application of some paint to get them ready to enter the fray. I am looking forward to this one. The level of detail is just outstanding.
I have watched some of the play testing videos on utube and the games seem to be short and sharp. This is going to be fun, fun, fun.
