Looking through my desk for errant items, I always open up one drawer in particular. It’s dumb because I know exactly what is in that drawer as it is the same thing that has been in there for year: my defunct Circle of Orboros army from back when I attempted to learn Hordes/Warmachine.

As I’ve been discussing off and on over the last few weeks, our Frostgrave bands were set to explore a vast underground library. This scenario is actually a slight variation of the core rules “The Library” with a mix of “A Haunted House.” I wanted to get in some fun monsters and the Wraiths served well as ancient librarians trying to keep their sanctuary free from plunder.
Ok, some kid game humor with some bad dad joke flavor mixed in. But! I did want to talk about the new maze I made. We have Frostgrave Friday coming up this week and we’ll be journeying once again into the frozen wastes, this time to The Haunted Library…
I ran across an interesting idea from Frostgrave designer, Joe McCullough, called Operation Last Train. The game is a new miniatures game set in a future world, doomed and overrun with voracious predators. Your team of volunteer soldiers are the only hope remaining to the scant survivors left on a planet scheduled for destruction.
What made me sit up and take notice of the project is that McCullough tied the project creation to the charity organization, Save the Children. While the rules are free, I hope that you decide it is worth a few bucks to support the designer’s wishes to use our fun, brutal hobby to do some good around the world. I’ve already donated and I’m starting to read through the rules to see what all it needs. Like a lot of McCullough’s work, it only requires what you have on hand or what miniatures you want to buy.
Busy week this week so I was only able to mess around with one of the shots I made for the banner image. More Frostgrave fun for the week.
Looking ahead to our next Frostgrave session, I decided we would run the same scenario across both games to make things easier. I really like the idea of the maze-like library and theme in the The Library scenario but wanted more danger. The Haunted Houses scenario introduced wraiths and I thought that might be cool to have floating around the library, going through the maze walls like they were nothing.
I recently picked up some of the shade monsters from Descent and knew I had the scenario laid out.
With Colton and Reese’s game report in and my “narrative” session complete, I figured I’d wrap up the rest of the sessions by going over the some last items from reports with a quick write up of my game and a make-up game with the only member that couldn’t make it the first time around. But first, the centerpieces of our games, the Mausoleum and statues.
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.
