Frostgrave Cheescake Warband

I got my friend John (not to be confused with my friend John) excited about playing Frostgrave. So much so that when he was in our Friendly Local Game Store - Dragon’s Den - He picked himself up a boxed set of Barbarian Women from Reaper Miniatures and brought them by for me to paint for him…

Well… I don’t know, but I think they might be a tad underdressed for adventuring in the frozen city of Frostgrave… they might find it a bit nipple… er... I mean… NIPPY!

… and that armour

I had thought of busting out the green stuff and adding a bit more fur to the lot of them… but then that seemed a little too much like work – and it would take too long – I’d like to get a campaign of this up and running soonish! 

(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version):

The bulk of these are from the Savage Beauty boxed set from Reaper Miniatures - it only had nine and only one spell caster so I’ve added an additional one to act as an apprentice – a figure from RAFM I happened to have in my lead mountain…

Magician and Apprentice. The Magician (with the staff) is from the Reaper Miniatures boxed set, the apprentice is the figure I added from RAFM.

The rest are from the Reaper Miniatures boxed set.

The Archer could be an Archer, Tracker or Ranger. The Warrior with the two swords I figure could be passed off as a Barbarian - they’re supposed to have a two-handed weapon… but two hand weapons could be pretty much the same…

Warriors with single hand weapons could be Thugs?

Warriors with sword and shield could be (wo)men-at-arms…?

Detail of two of the shields facing away in the above pictures.

Hopefully we’ll get to see these on the table in the not to distant future.

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

Game reports hopefully! 


  1. A hardy lot these barbarian women! Lovely paint jobs!

    1. Thanks! I'm pretty happy with how int turned out myself. I've painted similar on a few of my greek and Amazonian shields - the owl was a symbol of Athena - Goddess of War and Wisdom.

  5. Great work!! I am slowly drinking some of the Frostgrave Koolaid myself...

    1. Thanks! We're having another game this evening, so hopefully I'll have another battle report to post to whet your appetite!

  6. I like what you've done here! I almost spewed Pepsi on my keyboard when you mentioned "busting out" in relation to these lassies.
    Intentional or slip? Only you know!

    1. Thanks Jonathan!

      It as quite unintentional.
