There hasn’t been a miniature game that I have been as excited about as Frostgrave in a long time. This new title from Osprey’s Wargames Line is the spiritual successor to Mordheim, one of my favorite games of all time.
In Frostgrave, you make a warband of adventurers that are there to support a Wizard (your leader) and his apprentice. You are exploring the lost, frozen city known as Frostgrave for treasure and magical knowledge.
There are so many options to explore with this title, it’s hard to put them all into perspective! The heart of the game is a warband game where your models gain experience and get better from game to game. There is also a great adventuring aspect that can be explored involving random monsters and more as well. If you have a player in your group willing to be a GM for a game like this, then the sky is the limit!
Another great facet of this game is getting to use loads of cool miniatures you have amassed and not used before! Random monsters, wizards, Undead, and so much more have a place on the table with ease now.
Terrain for the game is also very exciting. You can go with a full on ruined city, an intact but frozen layout, the surrounding lands, deep underground ruins and caves, and many more.
The book is very reasonably priced at $25 for a full color, hardback tome so don’t hesitate to take the plunge. We have the full line of official Frostgrave miniatures in stock as well, so there is plenty to choose from to make your warband (along with our stock of Reaper, GW, Privateer, and many more…)
Keep an eye on the event list for upcoming Frostgrave events to check out the game in person!
