Title: Frostgrave 10mm
Post by: Arsenus on 09 January 2017, 09:34:13 AM
Hi all! It's been a long time but I'm back!

(http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-QFNUBnXNIzs/VoRUt_dbE6I/AAAAAAAAU0c/hmpxNPp6P5k/s1600/imback.png)

I have found a girlfriend who love play with minis so I have initiate her to frostgrave and she loved it so...

We want a smaller minis to play everywhere and also be easier to store so 10 mm is the best way.

To create ruins I have thinked to use the walls sections but the ruined houses seem to be unavailable and I am not sure it will be big enough to put minis in so I will propably build my onw but for now, I will test the 10mm before.

I think I will adapt all ranges (spells and weapons) to 2/3. That could allow us to use a 60X60cm table (24X24).

Stay tuned! I'm ordering the walls in seconds. :)

I have just received the sceneries! :) The bridge is awesome! :)
I have tried with some minis and that works well!
I just need some ruins to cut the line of shooters.

Hello! Now I've finished others projects and it's time to work on this one! But my account has been erased from the former store and I'm waiting to receive the approval for the new one.

I saw that a lot of miniatures are vanished from the store but I will buy some others to build my frostgrave expedition and the expedition for my love.

This is very true - good lateral thinking. The command packs will probably be good too.

As to ruined buildings - in 10mm these can be made very easily, you really just need a corner section, with a few bits of floor. Make them with different lengths of walls. You can put two close together and it looks like the ruins of a house. These can be made from cardboard, plastic card, foam board. You can print texture images from the internet to give a good appearance to the walls. And a few 3d bits, like window sills or roofing joists,  really lifts these simple models.

Polystyrene packaging is also very handy for building ruins and debris etc. Bash it up a bit, make sure you don't use spray paint, you're good :D

Cracking plan on mini-FG btw!

O've bashed up a wide range of "I can't believe it's not packing materiel" scenery for our 28mm games for FG - cheap as chips, quick, looks acceptable - could be better if I wasn't always in a rush and also cack handed with terrain stuff.

Still, I'm with Gorshkov. If it's good enough to do the job then it's fine!

Yes, you say that and it sounds so easy. But . . .

Every Mordheim campaign I've seen over the years has always floundered on the lack of scenery. Something about making ruined buildings (and making them look good!). And a proper Mordheim board needs a lot of buildings. I assume the same is true for Frostgrave?

And now having said that, I find myself planning a Mordheim board for 10mm gaming . . .

Cheers, Martyn

Post by: toxicpixie on 24 July 2017, 11:52:11 AM
Spot on :)

Martyn - I bet in 10mm it's quicker and easier, tbh and you could get appropriate ruins very quickly. TBH the old polystyrene packing trick is a simple way to do it, especially as Felstad is a "classical" era (ish) city, frozen in ice then unthawed in sort of late dark age/early medieval (ish) from the art and figures (not there's anything to stop you playing "Mordheim-Grave" or "Jungle-Grave" or "Desert-Grave" as we've seen :D), so big cyclopean but damaged structures of unknown purpose are likely rife !

Arsenus, they're nice - one thing I'd suggest is lots of "half figure height to a bit taller" rubble and scatter to break up LoS in between (say a base 2-3-4"-ish with chucks of "masonry" or debris, you can probably knock up a shed load in an hour or two and it really helps stopping missile weapons and ranged spells dominating overly. Also two or three storey ruins are good to give lots of vertical movement and shooting and tactical thought.  Make players work three dimensionally, it'll really give them something to get stuck into ;)

Superb, looking forward to seeing the end result!

I'd be tempted to keep inches and make it look better in scale, but going to CM's means a smaller play area needed (very handy) and much fewer buildings (really handy :D).
