Frostgrave, tooth and zombies.

Well I need to get 2 wisdomteeth removed. One of them made me have a vicious infection which brought me down. Damn.... But not just the one has to go, another is ready to start trouble too plus it has the begginnings of a hole. Might as well get that out as well now that I am there! NOT looking forward to it....

I have just started a campaign in FROSTGRAVE. Meet my warband. JoeBob my wizard in purple. JimBob my aprentice. The archer Pointy Dave. The tracker Miss. Dave. Dave Bear is one of my infantrymen and Momma Dave is the other infantry(wo)man. Sneaky Dave is my thief. Daaave is a thug, so is DaveDave. Bitey Dave is a warhound/squig and Dead Dave may appear if he is summoned. He actually did not make an apperance in my first fight, I was too busy flinging Bonedarts !

My opponent (Tim) used his orks to represent his warband, sadly I forgot to take a group photot of them. Cool idea though. It is one of the reasons I like Frostgrave, you use the miniatures that you have. No reason not to have your warband as Beastmen, Ratmen or whatever. As long as you can id what they are. Thief, thug, archer and so forth.

Our battle took place in a museum. 6 chests of loot! Oh and some constructs that came "alive" when we got hold of the loot. Whoops.... And we used the extra rule that states: When taking hold of a treasure roll a die. On the roll of 16+ a random encounter will happen. Well that happen 4 out of the 5 times we did. They come in at a random tableedge. The first 3 (bear, armoured skeleton and then 2 wolves) chose MY FREAKING TABLEEDGE! The last who was a snowleopard chose a neutral tableedge. All in all a really fun game. Here...Have a couple of pictures.



 In the end I came away with 2 treasure and Tim got one out. A bloody fight! I took his aprentice out MWAHAHAHAHA! (Erm sorry) No harm was done as we rolled for injuries after the game. And now my wizard has a ring of protection and a grimoire (Animate construct). He got 2 levels which I am unsure how to use at this point. Oh and 240 gold coins. Nice! My warhound is missed in next game but that is okay. Now they needed a basecamp, what better place for a necromancer...THE CRYPT! It will also confer a +2 on raising zombies. You can bet your soul that Dead Dave will appear in my next game!

And it is ZOMBTOBER which means I get to paint more zombies. Here is Dead Dave:

If you want to have a bit of fun and see some battlereports from Frostgrave, Guildball and just plain madness from 2 nutters... Go to youtube and search for BATTLEHAMMER. They show what I feel is the meaning behind these games. Having fun while playing! Though there are some grumpy faces whenever the rolls are bad. (Often). But do check them out.

Here....Have a link to the start of one of their games you lazy bums! 

Now to make ready for a demogame of Frostgrave tomorrow at the club. Take care out there....

  6. Very interesting Report. The necromancer in our game was quite good as well and it is a school of magic worth considering when our campaign starts properly. Thank you very much for the read.

  7. Ooh, I've had infected gums due to wisdom teeth too (a long time ago, mind). I couldn't sleep, I couldn't study, I couldn't eat - it was truly horrible and I hope that you get the problem fixed soon!

    Frostgrave does seem to be everywhere at the moment! Only thing is, when someone shouts for "Dave" then most of your band are going to be confused...
