|Enchanter & Apprentice WIPs - These models took some considerable time to prepare due to 'flash'|
Recently I’ve been increasingly finding myself in the mood for some ‘medieval’ fantasy wargaming, as opposed to my usual genres of super-heroes, zombies and science fiction. Whether this is because of the marvellous looking “Zombicide: Black Plague” “CoolMiniOrNot” kickstarter by “Guillotine Games” I’ve just backed or due to my having played several games of the “Steamforged Ltd” ruleset “Guild Ball” over the past couple of weekends, I am not entirely sure. Whatever the reason I have also been supporting the “Frostgrave” ‘Nickstarter’ by “North Star Military Figures” and have now received my rewards….
|Apprentices & Construct WIPs - Each miniature is absolutely packed with detail|
Despite the fact I’ve actually acquired quite a few of the game’s metal miniatures, as well as a box of the company’s multi-part plastic “Frostgrave Soldiers”, I’ve decided to start small and simply paint up my opposing wizards. Each magic user is accompanied by an able apprentice, so I’ve based them up as well. Finally I’ve also started some preparation work on one of the two constructs I additionally ordered. I don’t currently know precisely what they do on the tabletop, except presumably protect their party’s leader. But this small miniature looks rather fun to paint.
|Witch & Apprentice WIPs - The dark-skinned magic users are wearing polar bear furs|
As Frostgrave is a frozen city I’ve gone with the Northland-looking Enchanter for one of my factions. The model looks especially suitable with his long beard and thick furred garments. For opposition though I thought it would be interesting to utilise someone from a much warmer climate and thus have elected to utilise the rather voodoo-inspired Witch.
