Rangers of Shadowdeep – getting started

March 19, 2019 by wargamerchris

Rangers of Shadowdeep scratches an itch for me – tabletop cooperative Frostgrave sounds like fun, looks like fun, and gives me an achievable focus for painting the piles of 28mm fantasy figures that are lying around all over the estate.  No battle report yet – but painted this weekend and got most of these done in a day….

Three Rangers so far – names to follow as we get to the tabletop

And the giant spiders come to call – these are also a staple for Frostgrave as well.
