Frostgrave: Nickstarter läuft
Northstar Miniatures haben ein Pre-Order Programm für ihr Spiel Frostgrave gestartet.
Amidst the frozen ruins of an ancient city, wizards battle in the hopes of discovering the treasures of a fallen empire. In this fantasy skirmish wargame, each player takes on the role of a wizard from one of ten schools of magic, and builds his band of followers. The wizard’s apprentice will usually accompany his master, and more than a dozen other henchman types are available for hire, from lowly thugs to heavily armoured knights and stealthy thieves. Wizards can expand their magical knowledge by unlocking ancient secrets and may learn up to 80 different spells.
While individual games of Frostgrave are quick and can easily be played in an hour or two, it is by connecting them into an ongoing campaign that players will find the most enjoyment. In the campaign section, players will find treasure tables, rules for establishing bases, and even tables for wandering monsters. The scenarios given in the book are merely the beginning of the limitless adventures that can be found amidst the ruins of the Frozen City.
As Frostgrave is a table-top miniatures game, we’ve teamed up with Osprey Games to bring you the official Frostgrave figures. We’ve based them on the illustrations in the book, painted by artist Dmitry Burmak. There are three different sets of figures.The first set is the Wizards themselves. The Wizards are in packs of two figures, a Wizard and an Apprentice of a particular school. There are 10 different schools of magic in the game Frostgrave, and we have a pack of Wizards for each. These figures are made of pewter. The second set is specialist followers that the Wizards can employ, such as thieves and barbarians. These are also pewter figures.The third set is plastic figures. This is a box of twenty plastic figures to represent the soldiers the Wizards employ to accompany them into Frostgrave. The box set contains plenty of different weapon and equipment variants that no two Wizard parties will ever look the same.
The official release date for Frostgrave is the 20th of July 2015. With our Nickstarter pre-order program, we are offering you the opportunity to not only get your Frostgrave book and figures early, but to get some unique free and limited edition pieces with your order.We have five deals available in our Nickstarter, which we’ve named Wizard Levels.The Nickstarter Pre-order program ends June 29th 2015.
