Re: Frostgrave, Halo Ground Command and other tabletop minis

My daughter and I are working on modding the Frostgrave concept to the Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG system. I'll let you know how it goes.

Re: Frostgrave, Halo Ground Command and other tabletop minis

Saw one of my favorite board game reviewers, Joel Eddy, post some pictures on the Frostgrave facebook page I subscribe to. He did a review of Frostgrave that kind of helped get it on my radar, and them my friend Chris getting into it really solidified my wanting in.

Joel's initial review:


Here are some pictures he shared on the Frostgrave Facebook page. They are of a cool setup that he had seen at a game store in Spokane, Washington.

Re: Frostgrave, Halo Ground Command and other tabletop minis

This isn't Frostgrave, but it's another tabletop minis game that is coming out. I'm not going to buy into it, as I have too much going on with what I have now, but my buddy Jeff said he's going to buy everything that will come out for it, enough for many players. Though he wants me to paint his stuff. Oye!

Re: Frostgrave, Halo Ground Command and other tabletop minis

Im so pumped for this. I just about finished my first big conversion piece. It looks so cool and it still needs painting touch ups. Not having to worry about hex spaces sure opens up the imagination and ability for wow factor. That layout is so awesome looking. Im debating if I want to dust everything to look like snow or not.

I sat down and played the video game of this on my lazy tired evening for an hour or so. I probably wont buy it either as I have too much that doesnt make it to the table. It does look cool though.

Re: Frostgrave, Halo Ground Command and other tabletop minis

Thanks @TREX and @Hahma .

I don't have the Frostgrave Folio book but I'll look into it. I only have the original rule book. I don't recall there being so many books when I was trying to get into Frostgrave.

That is one awesome table there Hahma. I would love to play on it. Someone else posted their modular board that they had built. They are supposed to do a tutorial for the next one. I'm looking forward to it. I might even give it a try if it looks doable.

Re: Frostgrave, Halo Ground Command and other tabletop minis

I saw online that a lady just got a yard of canvas from a fabric shop and painted it to use for her Frostgrave "board".

There's a picture of it here: http://dmscraft.proboards.com/thread...-thread?page=4

There's a ton of awesome stuff in that thread. I also like the rubber mat board on that page where someone cut slits in it every inch so they could insert cardstock walls wherever.

You want 3 feet by 3 feet so the length is about right but the width is short. It would work if you say you can only carry treasure off the board on the long sides of the board.

I saw that one too Keglo. That's some skill there. I don't have that kind of skill, thus my game mat

Nice find Q! Fabric is cheaper for sure. I got a green piece of felt that is a little bigger than my 6x4 game table for around $13. I use it for bigger games of Halo Ground Command. So I can certainly see people being able to get 3x3 pieces of fabric for Frostgrave pretty cheap.

As Q mentioned, the official board size for a 2 player game is 3x3. But people can and have played on other sizes. The main reason for the 3x3, is the symmetry for where opposing players enter from, but also when placing treasure tokens and being able to kave them be a certain distance from a board edge, while also being able to keep them at least 6 inches from each other when placing. Also, except for certain scenario specific rules, when a random monster shows up after rolling 16+, they will show up on a random board edge. That said, there are no hard rules to keep people from doing what they want to make the game work for them. That's kind of the mission statement of sorts for this game, whatever works for you is great.

I've seen people play on a dining room table with no boar, mat, fabric. Just pieces of terrain here and there.

Re: Frostgrave, Halo Ground Command and other tabletop minis

Looks like GC has no scheduled events for Frostgrave. If anyone knows otherwise, please say so.
