North Star & Osprey’s New Frostgrave ‘Nickstarter’ Begins

September 26, 2015 by brennon

North Star and Osprey Games have launched their Nickstarter, a self styled pre-order system crossed with a fundraiser, for their expansion to Frostgrave called Thaw Of The Lich Lord.

Thaw Of The Lich Lord

More on the expansion…

“Thaw of the Lich Lord is a complete campaign for Frostgrave that will challenge both new and veteran players. Through a series of linked scenarios, players discover the existence of a new power in the Frozen City, one who was old when the great city was still young, and who saw both its rise and its disastrous fall.

Warbands will confront the Lich Lord’s minions, race against his agents to seize possession of mysterious artefacts, and brave the perils of Frostgrave in search of his lair.

Eventually, they will need to muster all their courage to venture into the depths of the city and face the Lich Lord himself.”

This sounds like a great expansion and it’s good to see that there is a focus on the narrative and scenarios drawing you towards that inevitable clash with the Lich Lord.

You can’t do that without new miniatures though and the Nickstarter is looking to get a whole bunch of them added to the game as well as available through bundles too…

Giant

Models like the Giant and the Wight (below) are models that you’ll be coming up against in the middle of the ruined city. The sculpting quality has come on leaps and bounds from the first iteration of Frostgrave in my opinion and I could see these being permanent favourites in many peoples collections.

Of course there are some helpful hands also on the way for Frostgrave include the Plastic Cultists (who might also be trying to capture you!)…

…and more focused individuals like the Crow Master below. There are plenty more personalities also on the way like Bards, Pack Mules, Gnolls, Ghoul Kings and Genies.

The Nickstarter has more information about the upcoming ‘stretch goals’ but it’s already looking like it’s going to be a cracking hit for North Star.

Have you put down your pre-order?
