End of the Drought

Unlike the weather, I have not had a shower of painted miniatures & looking back, it was in April that the last figures I painted were added to the blog.

Certainly not a planned event, just seems to be a great many things which have prevented me from getting some paint time.

However this past Sunday I managed to get 4 more figures finished & off the paint table, where they have been languishing.

I think I've had some of these figures for a very long time.

The Conan Barbarian figure is I believe an old Citadel model from the 80's. Also painted up were a Ranger, a Robber Knight & a thief.

As I am still picking through the stuff on my paint table, I will leave you folks wondering what I will showcase next.

Thanks for stopping by!

Frostgrave - The Breeding Pits (Campaign Game 6)

Last Sunday we had our sixth game of our current Frostgrave Campaign. This time we finally made it to one of the Breeding Pits!

The scenario was out of the book, with the addition of the following mods.

1) If a creature spawns from picking up a treasure it will be gnolls. Roll on the Gnoll chart to determine what spawns.

2) The 2 pits in the centre of the area are drawing air into them. They are for all intents bottomless. Anyone or anything entering them is gone. The downdraft also draws any FOG spells towards it. Moving them 1d4" per turn. As soon as the end of a  fog cloud touches the hole, it is drawn into it & removed.

3) We had Random Encounters each turn as usual. When the entry location was determined. A D6 was also rolled. On a 5 or 6, the creatures spawned on the walkway above.

We had 5 warbands pitted against each other this game.

Yhegda - Lvl 14 Witch

Bilgax - Lvl 10 Necromancer

 Severus - Lvl 16 Enchanter
