Since Corona leaves us with so much free time (not...), what better way to spend these lonely evenings than with listening to a podcast.
If you are keen on listening to ramblings about sculpting, toy and... stuff, you can do that here , since, ages ago, I had that chat with Mr. pink and Brother Pink and they finally have come around to make it into a piece of audio. So... enjoy!

As I have promised, this is the first "game report" of our remote Frostgrave campaign "Perilous Dark". We did some rule changes to the warband creation, which I will illustrate next time.
This time, we will follow our "heroes" into the salt marshes, where the try to find out, what has happened to missing villagers...
More, as always, after the jump.

I will (again) try to "report" the games we have with the frostgrave ruleset.
In times of social distancing, we decided not to be stopped by Covid 19 from having fun and dubbed for playing "Remote Frostgrave" (as I have described in my previous post). These posts shall be a mix of eyecandy (pictures taken during the games) and the storyline I am cooking up to keep everything together. We use the Scenario Rules as described in the Frograve: Perilious Dark" Supplement, but, as we have done before, we will use these rules just as the framework and make up our own fluff and additional rules to go along with it. As the goal is to have fun, we will make changes along the way, as we see fit.
So... follow me into the darkness... to Frostgrave...

It has been over a year, since I have started to play (and to love) Frostgrave and shortly before christmas, I have finished my first campaign (Thaw of the Lich Lord). The final scenario had a special treat; while in all the games before, we had to smash each others heads in, now, we had to fight together against the game itself.
And it was a blast.
So we decided to play Frostgrave: Perilous Dark , a coop version of the game, next. We almost had everything ready, when the Corona-Crisis forced everybody to stay home.
Surely, the campaign is designed to be playable as a solo campaign aswell... but... in times like these, it is nice to share the hobbylove with a fellow mind and get some well deserved distraction from the world going mad, right?
So, we decided to play our beloved Frostgrave... just remotely.
How we did it and how it worked... after the jump.

Don't be mislead by the title. This how to has nothing to do with the teeny series, not the actor... or the music.
When I was working on my mining table for Infinty, I wanted a quick and realistic looking texture, without having to use something heavy like stewalin or exhausing like cutting all the structures by hand.
So, if you are interesed in a rather quick and cheap technique, head this way ->
- Papertowels, idealy without any structure. (Don't buy that 1000 Pack on Amazon, you don't need
thaat much of towels... I have the basement now full of that stuff)
- some fine sand
- pva glue
- a handblender
- a bowl
- a bowl
- acryl colors (black and brown)
- prepared terrain
Almost... I sprinkle some more fine sand onto the still wet paste at a steep angle. This way larger areas gain a bit more texture and flat, "boring" surfaces are avoided.
