This weekend, we got together for another painting bash to put together more Frostgrave figures. This time I focused on painting up some of the wildlife my warband will include.
As I mentioned on Friday, we had an intro to painting session with a friend that has decided to join the hobby fold. He’s been on the sidelines, listening in, but now he’s ready to get into the game. I decided to start from scratch so we first put together a mini from the North Star Frostgrave Soldiers set and then dove in with the two models I assembled/primed earlier.
No, this won’t be a new series, it’s just a cheap alliteration. I still have stories that need be told from my adventures at Gen Con and I wanted to focus in on my Frostgrave experience in particular. The best event I participated at the ‘Con was the Frostgrave free-for-all hosted by the game’s designer Joseph McCullough. The host was nice, the game was great and everything was well run.
With 22 days left until Gen Con, I figured I’d get a jump on an event I’m participating in and one that sounds quite fun. “Frostgrave: Bleak Sunrise with Creator” is a sold out introductory event into the world and rules of Osprey’s popular Frostgrave miniature skirmish game.
I’ve danced around playing this game for some time now. Some friends of mine said they really liked it but it was a bit too random. Others just barely dipped their toe in and want to explore the game in more detail. With this intro game at Gen Con, I’ll be able to get a firsthand view of the game with none other than the designer, Joseph A. McCullough.
