Jumping back into the realms of fantasy

This entry marks my 100th posts thus far.  When I originally started this blog, I didn't think it would've last this long or have this many posts.  I figured I would've gotten bored with it by now, but it seems I'm still trucking along and judging by my numbers, people are still interested in seeing my stuff, which is awesome.  I'm still motivated to do this blog, maybe not as much as first, but I have a vested interest in continuing it.  We'll see where the next 100 posts brings us....

Now that that's out of the way, lets get down to business.  Frostgrave..... at first I didn't pay much attention to it, but after a friend pointed it out to me and expressed interest in playing, it gave me an excuse to jump on the bandwagon and check it out.  Now I haven't played a game yet, but I've been pouring over the rulebook and watching vids on youtube, so I think I have a pretty good grasp on the flow of it.

Starting off, I wanted to get the "official" miniatures, so I ordered a box of soldiers from North Star, put together nice mix of soldiers and started painting.  Here's where I'm at so far....

So I got 5 of them done so far.  One thief, one thug, one arms-man, one archer, and one crossbow-man.  It's pretty rounded for a starting warband and I mainly wanted to get my basic starting troops done.  I have until the beginning of January to get the rest of them painted up, and I'm about 50% completed with the wizard and apprentice.  All in all, they're fun to paint up.  I had to plan my paint schemes a little more than usual just because each miniature has about 3 layers of clothing.  I do like the way they turned out.

And what Frostgrave game is complete with nasty NPC's running around?

Just some quick skeletons to add a bit of chaos into the games.  These particular skeletons are from Wargames Factory and currently unavailable until Warlord Games starts distributing them.  I have a few more I'd like to get painted up before my first game.

Until next time!
