Away from the office and after the end of the working day, WI staff are often only armed with the vagaries of the camera ‘phone. Hence, these shots aren’t as good as we like BUT do give a flavour of both an upcoming rule set and a showcase game to be found in the WI ‘Zone’ at Salute 2015. Many thanks to Osprey and the North Star Military Figures crew for the chance to ‘have a go’ at adventuring in the city of Frostgrave.
We tried out an Enchanter and Elementalist adventuring band in a ‘cut down’ version of the rules which is designed to be played by beginners at shows. It’s a fast and deadly game where a wizard without support from the variety of available henchmen is just asking for trouble. Spells were cast, arrows were fired and melee weapons clashed in the quest to acquire treasure amidst the ruins of the ancient city.
The 28mm figures used were some of those soon to be made available by North Star in partnership with Osprey Games. The boards used Secret Weapon’s Tablescape as the basis but had been heavily adapted thanks to paint effects, scenic items and some very nice Gale Force 9 / Battlefront pre-painted ruins.
