Ah time to catch up on some of those side projects…
As you might have
However, that wasn’t going to stop me picking up some sprues and creating a few more adventurers to go into the dungeons. Kicked off by the arrival of single
ghost archipelago Crewmen
Hailing from the more tropical realms of Frostgrave’s sister game Ghost Archipelago, these 5 figures have a bit more of a tropical pirate vibe to them. However, I think they would work pretty well as the townsfolk of this northern town once they are indoors or in the underground. For this reason, I decided to go with the less “sea dog looking heads”. These are going to be the poor peasants or workers, suddenly interrupted by the
Assembly wise, it’s obvious there is the same feel to them as the other Frostgrave kits. I didn’t try any cross assembly but it might look a little unusual with the difference in clothing styles.
Let’s take a look at what I assembled, going from left to right
- Simple bowman – maybe someone to be encountered out in the woods near the city, moments before something nasty appears.
- Big axe, bag on
back– either another woodland dweller or maybe a merc hired to cut through obstacles before grabbing the loot.
- Bandana, beard, sword – simple cannon fodder. Ideal for a bar fight.
- Mohawk, sword, simple clothes – another sailor ideal for throwing into the mix
- Okay, this guy is my secret favourite. Floppy hat,
clubin hand, closed fist. I am willing all my luck
I’m actually tempted to pick up some more sprues of this, especially if I decide to add some docks to the city for the opportunities. So expect to see more of these guys.
I’ve been looking forward to getting my hands on these girls for a while, especially after seeing the original previews. I really like the style they have gone for, continuing the wrapped up warm look that the original figures had while being sculpted to still look feminine. These all look like tough practical fighters working in winter conditions.
Options wise, there is the same mix of kit as the original spures, everything from bows and crossbows to various swords and spears. There is a great selection of heads
So lets look at who I assembled. Again going from left to right
- I went for a classic adventurer look here, here striding forward, resting on her spear as she treks into the mountains.
- This one is probably going to be used as the leader of the adventuring party. Cape hanging off there back sword held low as she advances, her mouth covered in a cloth against the environment.
- An experienced fighter, axe in one hand and a bow in the other
- Big lady with a big axe. This figure also has the two-part ponytail head, slightly moved to give her some motion
- I think the hood and crossbow makes her look like some form of
tracker, ideally suited for living up above the snow line
Overall, this is a really nice alternative to the normal soldier sprue if you want some additional variations. There is a good selection of parts and they do look different to their male variants – it’s definitely more than just a headswap.
So where do we go from here? I really like both of the sets I’ve
Next step: Actually do some painting.
