I dont get involved with a lot of Fantasy projects, but this year Im jumping on board the Frostgrave bandwagon.
My gaming buddies like sci-fi and fantasy gaming. I favour sci-fi to the more or less complete exclusion of fantasy – its just not really my bag baby. But in the interest of broadening my horizons and a bit of give and take with mates I got behind Frostgrave and I have started to put together a warband.
These three old Citadel Chaos Warriors are the first finished members.
The theme that I am going for has a fantasy Asian feel to it. Expect ninja and oni and the like (and maybe a dragon if I can manage it), but dont expect “historical” accuracy or anything. This will be a fantasy force, with Chinese, Korean, Russian, Indian… and any other influences real or imagined if I feel so inclined.
Although I like the characterful and snowbound look and feel to the Frostgrave setting, Im not prepared to build a snowy terrain set. I need my terrain to be more flexible than that will allow, so expect a more jungle ruins sort of affair for these guys. “Sweatgrave” if you will.
Im painting figures that I like and trying to mash them into the game system afterwards: the project is model driven.
With that in mind The Butcher (a bloodthirsty, homicidal killer) and Warmax (a silent samurai with a warped sense of honour) are pencilled in as “Templar” characters. Koragg (an honour bound and therefore completely loyal servant of the forthcoming Lady Neurotica) is likely to serve as a knight.
With an organised event coming up in a few months there will be a fair bit of Frostgrave here for a while (I hope). Hopefully you will check in to see how it develops.
