Spellcasters are still coming out of North Star as they show off more previews for Frostgrave. See what you make of this array of wizards and mages that will be part of this partnership with Osprey Publishing…
You’re A Wizard Harry!
Below you can see three of the new wizards for the game starting off with the Chronomancer followed by the Witch and Summoner. Each of them will have their own school of magic and an apprentice to teach too…
Each of these sculpts has been done by Kev Dallimore and will be metal figures for use in the game. I really like the fact that all of the wizards we’ve seen so far have been from a range of different backgrounds.
What Is Frostgrave?
This is what Frostgrave is all about…
“In this fantasy skirmish wargame, wizards battle amidst the frozen ruins of an ancient city, in the hopes of discovering the treasures of a fallen empire.
Players take on the roles of wizards from one of ten schools of magic, and build their bands of followers. While the wizard’s apprentice will usually accompany his master, more than a dozen other henchmen types are available for hire, from lowly thugs to heavily armoured knights and stealthy assassins.
Wizards can build their magical knowledge by unlocking ancient secrets, with the potential to learn up to 80 different spells. As players gain power and wealth, they can develop their headquarters on the outskirts of the city, turning basic locations into bastions of their art and equipping them with alchemical laboratories, mystical forges, astronomical telescopes and other magical resources.
While individual games of Frostgrave are quick and can easily be played in an hour or two, it is by connecting these games into an ongoing campaign that players will find the most enjoyment. The scenarios given in the book are merely the beginning of the limitless, thrilling adventures that can be found amidst the ruins of the lost city.”
Are you excited for the game yet?
