Frostgrave terrain on the table.

Winterwillow and Mooncrow have returned to the ruins of Frostgrave seeking treasure.

KublaCon2016 gave my friends and I a great opportunity to pool our terrain collections and play some Frostgrave.  I’m not going to go into a full battle report as there were a number of them and I don’t recall all the details.  I’m just delighted with how good the terrain and figures look on the table and not just my own stuff.  All my friends, at all skill levels, have made good looking warbands, imaginative terrain, and it all looks great together.

Brian M. has made some great walls and risers from insulation foam that is very versatile.

Love how our group's pieces all work well together. Really expands the collection at get togethers.

The close ups are fun and make me want to work on some narrative photography at home.  Yet another way to play with painted toys.

Lynx can see the demon being summoned in a far courtyard. This is just got a lot tougher.

Not easy to get to but I'm thinking a teleport spell will help.

Another tough one to claim but exactly what I designed the terrain piece for.

Lady Mooncrow and her Templer guard follow the hounds into the ruins.

 

I’ve got a few ideas of what I want to build next and I still have a couple of Matt’s unfinished houses to problem solve.  I do think I need to come up with some hill sized rubble piles as well as smaller ones for scatter.  In addition, I am still trying to figure out how to add more vertical height to the battlefields.  Then there is the Breeding Pits supplement that will introduce Gnolls and underground terrain due any day now.  Seems there will be any number of new projects to work on.

 

Taking aim, can just see the head of that apprentice upstairs.
