Ogre Hunter

I've been steadily painting up this miniature for a month or so, which is a long time for me, just doing bits and pieces as I feel like it.

I'm really pleased with how he's turned out, particularly the warpstone, so much so I'm tempted to break out the last few ogres I have lying around from the ogre battalion I bought about 5 years ago. I still have a ninja maneater as well somewhere!

What do you think?

Arachnarok Spider

I got this monster as a present last Christmas (2015!) and it sat for quite a long time because I was a bit intimidated by the thought of painting in.
 I finally got around to it at the end of 2015, and I really enjoyed painting it. I tackled it in several bits: the spider, the base, the howdah and the goblins - I probably rushed the last two parts a bit but I'm happy its all finished.

Not sure when I'll get around to use him "in game" - my regular warhammer/AoS opponents have gone AWOL of late and no one down the club plays. I'm sure I'll work him into a game of God of Battles or Kings of War if I pester someone enough!

More Frostgrave

I played another game of Frostgrave at the ELMS club this week. It was a bit of a refresher for some of the players at the club and an introduction for the others.

It ended up being a very bloody 3 all draw, with my poor tracker being taken out carrying a treasure with one move to the edge of the table!

We played using John's "Jenga-grave" terrain, which he created using some knock-off jenga blocks, wooden building blocks and some textured spray - simple and effective!

I've also started using instagram. You can follow me at KevMoon5566 for blurry phone pictures of what I'm up to!

Frostgrave in 2016

Tonight was the first game of the year down at the ELMS club in Leeds.

We went for a 3-way game of Frostgrave to remind ourselves of the rules before we have a taster session for others at the club who want to try it and before we begin playing through the liche lord book.

 I took along a brand new warband with a Necromancer, apprentice, ranger, tracker, thief, two thugs and a warhound. I also managed to summon a boar that I'd just finished painting.

We played the worm hunt scenario, the worm remained particularly shy until popping up with one treasure unclaimed before promtly being clubbed to death by my opponents warbands!

Highlights included casting beauty on my heart holding necromancer, numerous elemental walls and some terrible dice rolling.

I managed to get away with four treasures out of the 9 so I'm claiming a win! It was a fun game, as all our frostgrave games tend to be.
