Frostgrave: Casual Campaigning

I've just started playing an ad-hoc Frostgrave campaign with one of the First Founding regulars and I thought it would be fun to keep a summary of my Wizard and Warband's status here on the Vault. Acecerak and the Ragged Court are finally seeing some play time on the Table Top!

Power from Paint: Raiding with Mercenaries

The Kabal of the Sand Viper have ventured back into Real Space once more, seeking glory and slaves. I recently attended First Founding having arranged an impromptu game with Greg and his Dark Angels.  We decided points levels just prior to the game and so I had to go digging into my figure case to find some more models to add to my normal force; this allowed me to add a squad of mercenaries, a HQ and a raider to my list!

So here's the Gun Boat, but who did I recruit to ride in it?

The Gift: Trouble at Leoric's Logging Camp

Time for another journey into the depths of the Vault my faithful Venturers! This month's D&D game (scheduled for a couple of weeks time) will see the players participate in the inaugural session of The Gift campaign. 

Each character has been granted a Land Deed in the northern region of The Gift, near the village of Hearthsholme, from where they can seek their fortunes and make their names. 

Some people are already making their wealth and leaving their mark on these frontier lands. One such individual is Leoric; a hard nosed business man by reputation, he controls two of the major ferries across the northern river and runs a logging business felling timbers from the edge of the Dead Lands forests.

However Leoric has a problem; his woodsmen have been cutting deeper and deeper into the forests, and they have disturbed the forest spirits. And the spirits are angry at the damage that has been wrought on their domain!

Power from Paint: The Spirit Prophet

Welcome back to the Vault my fellow Archons; today we visit the darkest halls of Commorragh's Covens.

It is well known among the Dark Kin that the Haemonculi of the Prophets of Flesh foretell the future from the suffering of others; reading the runes revealed in Dark Eldar raids and battles, as well as other more esoteric and exotic forms of flesh crafting. One of the rarer forms of soothsaying is that of Spirimancy, and it's adherents are named the Spirit Prophets.

First Founding Frostgrave: A blast from the past

It's been a long time since we visited Felstad, but I've recently received some more game results so I thought I'd post a quick update to the Rune Stone Race results table. Yep an actual real post as opposed to this apparently imaginary fellow!

Narrative Scenario: Da Sword in Da Stone

Many posts ago I wrote a narrative Warhammer 40,000 scenario that pitted Kanan's Dark Angels against my Death Watch. It was a lot of fun to play, and at the time I offered to write a similar scenario for any of my regular opponents. Neil from Table Standard took me up on the offer, and I've utterly failed to make good on it.

Until this post! Neil and I have played a number of times before but my favourite encounter has been when his Orks and my Imperial Guard have faced each other. So here's a narrative grudge match; Da Sword in Da Stone!

Yes, yet another model to paint!
