While still on hiatus from Warmachine (although I did break out Rhyas for a Longest Night event last week in which I got to top table), I’ve been going full bore on knocking out my Ten Thunders crew members. The first up is Mei Fang’s Rail Crew:
I’ve always loved Mei Fang’s model and Railwalker is such a cool name for an ability (it’s even cooler in action in game).
If you follow me on Facebook you’ve likely seen my real-time progress shots on Frostgrave, Osprey’s new Warband Adventure game, which I’ll be running an open Campaign for at the CoOp. I’m super-excited to get to play and I should have the bulk of the neccessary scenery for it done this weekend.
Here’s some progress shots of my Sigilist warband for those that haven’t seen them. They’re a mix of Reaper, Otherword and the new North Star Frostgrave Soldier plastic box!

Some changes are universal. BTS becomes a positive stat – instead of seeing “BTS -3,” it will now simply read “BTS 3.” They have added the Silhouette stat (all Icestorm “human-sized” models are S: 2). Availability (AVA) is missing from the Icestorm rules, but I do not think that that means it is missing from the eventual, full profiles.
