After roughly 3 months away I hope I am back to gaming and blogging a little more regularly. Our recent move was substantial and difficult. After a couple months of remodeling the new house, while getting the old place ready for closing, and then moving (without movers mind you did it all myself with some family help from my brother in law and his businesses 16ft truck) was a bear. Add to that, working and having two young kids in a beach town in the middle of summer in my “spare” time , left me no room for anything else but sleep.
Somewhere along the way during late night web surfing, I came along the game Frostgrave Despite my years of big army gaming, I am a skirmish player at heart and a skirmish game this popular using any generic figures seemed right up my alley. A quick Amazon order later I was digging thru the rulebook and realizing this was very easy game to to play. I like the mechanics a lot better than Songs of Blades and Heroes and with a Mordheim style campaign and interest from my almost 9 year old daughter in full effect, we set out to playing a game.
It measures 30”x 27” so slightly large then the recommend 2 x2 for a small game
