Pimp My Board Game

a pursuit of fruitless endeavors and endless refinements

I know I’ve been obsessed with Frostgrave all week but after our first game, it has it’s hooks in me. Deep. So time to keep the ride going and highlight Therelin and her furry friends.

Frostgrave Winter Campaign: Therelin’s Tale, Part 1

Claw’s musty fur felt soft in her hands as Therelin stroked the old sleeping hound, his oversized head lying in her lap. The candles had long gone out save for one flickering guardian. Had the spell failed? It rarely did before but the night was queer and all the nervous tension leading up to this moment may have jinxed her calling. Still, all the old powers surged at the ritual’s completion so she felt something else must afoot.

The hound’s ear twitched towards the door and soon enough, the young wizard heard the slow, heavy footfalls of her former guardian climbing the stairs. With a heavy knock, the unlatched door opened, ushering in a chill wind that guttered the last candle out.

“Sorry your Grace, but the men are ready,” Tog said softly in the dark.

Frostgrave Winter Campaign: Session 1

We had our first full Frostgrave session over the weekend and it was a lot of fun. Five of us were able to make it out on the snowy night and so we split into two groups. I started writing up my session report but it mutated into some long narrative instead. I was having fun writing so I figured I’d keep the non-traditional report but will need more time to edit it a bit more. In the meantime, my friend Colton was able to write up his own report of the other game that was running on the other table:

Reese and I played The Mausoleum scenario in the core book. In this scenario, a crypt in the center of board stands silent watch over several valuable pieces of treasure. But something foul has gone wrong in this ancient tomb and the undead are restless.

A Tale Of Two Chests

After a few false starts with my new airbrush, I finally had everything ready to go and was going to use a production-style process to finish up a batch of Frostgrave treasure chests. I picked up a water trap (thanks Russ!) and figured out the correct fittings for everything so it was time to set up the paint area.

Re-wizarding

Our next game of Frostgrave is coming up and I needed to solidify my warband again and finalize everything for upcoming campaign. I was a bit jealous that everyone had wizard-looking wizards in their upcoming band and even though I really liked my Ranger-wizard, I thought I could do better and get someone looking more the part.

A Touch Of Frostgrave

After months of planning and painting, my group started up our first venture into Frostgrave. It was a compromise on many levels but the group is nothing if not good sports and we set our date and stuck to it last weekend. Six of us ultimately ended up in the campaign and this presented a slight challenge as there were quite a few that were brand new to Frostgrave and even brand new to tabletop minis in general. To ease everyone in, I concocted a simple intro scenario to bring us all together and get everyone on the same footing.

Finishing The Warband

With our first game of Frostgrave hitting over the weekend, I spent last week finalizing the warband I had left. I only had to get through my Apprentice and Wizard. The Apprentice was pretty easy and I was pleased to see that his custom wand worked out.

Getting Our Paint On

I had this plan to put up this 2018 recap with charts and graphs but that felt a little too much for the first full work week back.  I’ll push that back a little bit so instead, I have some pics from another group painting session.  Like last time, my friend Reese hosted and three of us hung out, slapped paint down, and ate some good food.

The Gang Is All Here

So with Tog suiting up, I needed to get the rest of my team in order.  Our group decided to go easy on the first few Frostgrave sessions so we’re only pulling from the core rulebook.  My original warband had a Captain but those don’t appear until later so I came up with a different group.

Always Two There Are; No More, No Less

A master and an apprentice.  We’re going to focus on that apprentice today.  His name is Tog and he seemed very un-apprentice looking in my Frostgrave Warband.  When we last left him oh so many months ago, he was based a little and still very “master of hunt.”
