Frostgrave is active!

I previously posted about Frostgrave back in April. Go here. The Northstar Newsletter just announced Frsotgrave is live!

This from Boardgame Geek:

"Amidst the frozen ruins of an ancient city, wizards battle in the hopes of discovering the treasures of a fallen empire. In this fantasy skirmish wargame, each player takes on the role of a wizard from one of ten schools of magic, and builds his band of followers. The wizard's apprentice will usually accompany his master, and more than a dozen other henchman types are available for hire, from lowly thugs to heavily armoured knights and stealthy thieves. Wizards can expand their magical knowledge by unlocking ancient secrets and may learn up to 80 different spells.

While individual games of Frostgrave are quick and can easily be played in an hour or two, it is by connecting them into an ongoing campaign that players will find the most enjoyment. The scenarios given in the book are merely the beginning of the limitless adventures that can be found amidst the ruins of the Frozen City.

Osprey Games and North Star miniatures will produce a full range of official Frostgrave miniatures. This includes wizards and apprentices from all ten schools of magic, and all the soldiers that can be hired for their warbands. The wizards, apprentices and specialist henchmen such as the apothecary and thief are metal sculpts while a multi-part plastic box set offers huge variety in building the more common soldier types."

Also check the Northstar Newsletter.

I'd love a glance at the rules or some other parts of the books.

Every Wizard can have an apprentice and a party of adventurers for adventuring and battling in the ruined city of Frostgrave.

There are ten different schools of magic each with a unique Wizard and Apprentice.



Sooth Sayer                                                 Summoner

Thaumaturgist                                                                     Witch

Additional figures will be added as the campaign progresses. So far they have added the following:
Apothecary & Marksman                              Knight & Templar

Thief & Barbarian                                   Tracker & Warhound

and a box of twenty (20) soldiers that can be constructed in a multitude of configurations

This is what a typical warband looks like:
