Mountain Gut Busters

This post is from one of our members who is not a regular contributor. Big thanks to Shadow for putting this article together and taking the pictures. It has been a little quiet on the blog; Christmas is a big period down under and it’s not until after the 26th

Abyssal failed assassination attempt

Still reeling from my defeat last week at the hands of the Trident Realms commanded by Lord T, this week I got to the Monday Knights club meeting early to smash out a quick game before my opponent Floppy had to leave. Only a short report this week, not much

Rescue the Princess

It is fair to say I may have been a little cocky going into my third Vanguard game. Once again, I was facing the Trident Realms warband commanded by Lord T, this time the scenario was “Rescue the Princess”.  The reason for my confidence? I was lucky enough to be

Vanguard Terrain

One of the things that came from Mantic was a few of their terrain packs. These feature special terrain pieces that are used for most of the scenarios in the rulebook. I think this is really cleaver, aligning the random objectivy sort of things you get with the rule book

Northern Alliance Dwarves and more

I’ve done a few odds and ends for my Northern Alliance warband. First I finished my 5 dwarves. These are very basic, very weak grunts (decidedly un-dwarven characters). Still they’ve proved useful taking objects, sacrificing into things, finishing off downed figures, supplying an out number and adding to the size

Thunderbirds

A couple of us have picked up some of Games Workshop’s new dog fighting game Aeronautica Imperialis. We’ve played a handful of games and some of us are further along in our painting than others. Our early impressions are the game is pretty good. The miniatures are great: they look

Stealing Supplies from the Nightstalkers

I haven’t made any progress with painting my Vanguard Abyssal army since my first game last week. Truth be known, I haven’t had much of a chance to give Vanguard a second thought much less do any preparation for my second game. As a result, I packed the very same

First Game for the Forces of the Abyss

Boiling steam and smoke announced the arrival of the furious horde of demons which set loose from the bowels of the earth on an unsuspecting village.  Unprepared for an attack by loose bowel demons, the Trident Realm defenders desperately attempted to light a signal beacon to summon armed assistance to drive

Making Frostgrave Arcane Circles

Once again, Frostgrave‘s Ulterior Motives gaves me another opportunity to make some interesting terrain. This time its Arcane Circles. In this post, I’ll show three different types I made. The first is the simplest. Its just two circular pieces of XPS foam glued together. A table hot wire cutter makes

Some ranged attack & some flying attack

The first game of Vanguard for my Forces of the Abyss is coming up this Monday & I still have a bit of work to do. So far, I only have a Despoiler, five Lower Abyssal grunts and a stand of proxy Imps painted up ready to go. Starting to

Making Pits and Craters

If you play Frostgrave with Ulterior Motives, you’ll need a pit. If you play Rangers of Shadow Deep you’ll need some fly holes. I play both, so I decided to make some of these important holes in the ground. For a fly hole or crater I started with a piece

Send in the grunts

Time to make some in-roads into putting my Vanguard Abyssal warband & flesh out the ranks with some grunts. The Forces If the Abyss Vanguard Starter pack has a plastic sprue of Lower Abyssal “grunts”. They are a multi piece kit with plenty of weapon and head options – enough
