Frostgrave - The Worms of Our Borough's

Today was our monthly gathering for our Frostgrave Campaign game. It was special as we finally had all 5 warbands  engaged on the field. Alas this is fleeting as Andy will be heading away to pursue some employment in another locale.

The next scenario entitled "The Worm Hunts" I modified so that when the first worm spawned. It would follow the normal rules of creatures, however if no opponent was within 10"or in sight, it would proceed towards the nearest treasure & devour it. If the worm was slain, netting the killers 100xp, another worm would spawn at one of the remaining treasure locations & continue.

The field of battle. I used my platforms to see how they held up. I think everyone enjoyed the multi-level battleground.

Ember enters the field.

Scott's warband got to enjoy the arrival of 2 Trolls, who caught up to his Wizard & engaged him in combat.

Meanwhile Cormak Bode placed a Furious Quill on my Thief.

He was able to shrug it off & made for the first platform, only to be slain by an archer. (& the first 20 of the game)

As the first treasure is picked up. A Giant Worm appears right beside Malcron's warhound.

Scott hurries all his warriors to assist his beleaguered Wizard. The caused the loss of his Treasure Hunter. (Dice represent remaining wounds on creatures)

One of Craig's Infantrymen gets ambushed & slain by 2 of Jonathan's warriors

An Ice Toad arrives. The had Ember scale the walls to the platform above.

I was able to return the favor of a natural 20 on one of Craig's archers.

The Ice Toad & one of my archers slew each other with identical rolls.

Scott's warband after having successfully killed the trolls, is now beset upon my a Minor Demon.

Meanwhile Andy had been gathering treasures & was making to leave the field. Cormak Bode Teleported across the table to attempt to prevent this. The intention was good, however he failed & was later slain by Scott using an Elemental Bolt.

Meanwhile the Giant Worm was making its way across the table. Oh & slaying Andy's warband as it did.

Jonathan's wizard summoned a Major Demon. But after a couple of turns, it left the field.

Another of my archers scores a natural 20, dropping one of Andy's crossbowmen.

This was then followed by my Strength induced War hound. Who netted another natural 20 on Andy's Treasure Hunter.

The worm engages my Templar. Behind is Andy's wizard pitted against my Captain.

The War hound rushes into the fray!

And slay's the Giant Worm!

With only 3 treasures remaining on the table...Scott was the lucky lad to have the Giant Worm spawn near his.

He was able to make good use of the Push spell, to allow his treasure laden lad to escape.

The results of the  scenario were as follows;

Jonathan - 320xp
Infantryman Died
3 treasures - 450gp, 3 Grimoires- Beauty, Power Word, Elemental Ball

Scott - 595xp
3 treasures - 210gp, 4 potions - Elixir of Speed x2, Invulnerability, Healing

Craig - doesn't matter
Wizard Died, Apprentice Died
I believe a new warband will be coming next month.

Andy - 290xp
Wizard Died, Crossbowman Died, Crossbowman Badly Wounded, Treasure Hunter Badly Wounded.
4 treasures - 590gp, Grimoires - Grenade, Possess

Me - 720xp
Thief Died, Archer Badly Wounded
3 treasures  - 280gp, Scrolls - Mud x2, Plague of Insects, Beauty, Control Animal, Grimoires - Heal.

As well I was able to finish painting  my Malifaux Wild Boars.

These plastic figures are from the Hog Wild Box set. I am quite impressed with the detail these miniatures have & how well they go together



  1. Another tremendous report Terry, great fun and those boars look rather splendid too!

    1. Thanks Michael. You have got me thinking that it may be interesting to have each of the warband leaders take their photos & write up their own after action reports just to see how each player viewed the adventure...something to ponder.

      Yes when I saw those boars, I knew they would be perfect for using in Frostgrave, however as I am drawn to Malifaux as well 8D

  2. Great looking table. I love the rule about the work going to devour the nearest treasure - I might have to borrow that one!

    1. Thanks Joe & certainly use the rules. As my campaign is totally multi-band, I tend to modify the scenarios to ensure it keeps the bands occupied.

  3. Great looking table. I love the rule about the work going to devour the nearest treasure - I might have to borrow that one!

  4. Looks like a real blast of a game - bravo!
