Frostgrave: Snowflakes in Hell

Rhymeless? Not Quite!
It's All-Skype Fight Night!

More Frostgrave tonight, with a clash of Chronomancy and Enchanting. Kas and Kraken at the appropriate helms, hampered only slightly by a duff internet connection.

Frostgrave: Special Snowflakes

Wait! Don't Shoot!
It's the First Annual All-Live Non-Skype SwefBoot!

These are some of Dmitry Burmak's illustrations for Frostgrave, he's an official illustrator. Lovely stuff!

Good Lord! They said it would never happen, but they were wrong. I don't know who they are, or why they were talking about something so obscure and basically unimportant as three blokes getting together for a weekend of dice-based nerdery, but there you are. It's a crazy, mixed-up world out there, and if nothing else, our blog is a locus of international gossip and scandalmongery. Or so I would have you believe.

Endor The Road vs Decistress

Squadrons Take Flight!
It's All-Skype Fight Night!

Stylus here - the shield is still up, but the text is still plain.

I, Kas, am back after a Xwing enforced drought based on work and holiday and looking forward to a good game. Whilst I was away the Amazon fairies delivered a new toy that I was eager to try out...

Black TIE Ball vs Hoth Sthuff

The Snow Is White!
It's All-Skype Fight Night!

Stylus here, plain as the snow fields of Hoth.

Kraken here in bold. Also in Black TIE.

Cabinet of All The Talents

Once again, my armies are creeping out from their dark hiding places and brazenly displaying themselves on the walls of the man-cave.

About a month ago, I discovered that Lidl sell these glass-fronted cabinets, of pretty decent quality, at low, low prices (this is not a sponsored post, but if Lidl are reading this and would like to send me another, I'll find the wall space for it!)

It seems to only happen for a limited time, then disappear until next year - the discount furniture equivalent of Punxsutawney Phil the Groundhog.

After our Advent bonanza, you think I might have tired of blogging about pictures of chests.

No sir! I shall never tire.

Yavin It Large vs TwIGgy

By Yavin 4's Early Light!
It's All-Skype Fight Night!

Two weeks since the arrival of Stylus Jnr Mk II, which means two weeks of building X-Wing lists during the 3am feeds. I finally scrape together an hour to play, and Kasfunatu kindly obliged.

Not a problem, work will negate the option to play for a couple of weeks myself, and so it was good to get one last sortie in.

Die Me A River

An Unholy Rite!
And SkypeGrave Fight Night!

Back to the icy expanse of Felstad tonight, for a second clash between Chronomancy and Enchanting. Kas and I have been racking up the games this week, as both X-wing and Frostgrave are really firing up our hobby love right now. Quick, easy and satisfying, like a box of chicken nuggets. Probably just as good for our physical health too. 

Mmmm nuggets...

Yes, three consecutive evenings and four games played. Loving both games.
