I decided to jump on the rapidly moving band wagon and back the 'Nickstarter' for Frostgrave, a brand new fantasy skirmish game from North Star and Osprey. I backed it to get a copy of the rules and one pair of wizards, as I didn't want to commit too much in case I didn't like it. When it arrived I loved it. The rules book is a slickly produced hardback rules with lost of coloured plates and pictures of the figures form the game. I just wanna get going!
I realise now I should have picked up a pack of the plastic soldiers while they were going cheep on pre-order, but I never, so I decided to make some from the bits and bobs I had hanging around. These figures are kit bashed from plastics from Warhammer/Mordhiem, Conquest Miniatures and Gripping Beasts. I tried to copy the style of the Frostgrave soldiers, which tend to have more of a medieval look to them than a typical Mordheim figure, which is where the Norman bits from Conquest came in handy. The city of Frostgrave is, as the name suggest, a frozen ruin, and so I added fur lining and a scarf with green stuff, To portray that these are adventurers in the classic Dungeons & Dragons style I also added backpacks, sling bags, pouches and bedrolls.
