Frostgrave Cultist Barbarian


I really like the Frostgrave setting I am yet to try it but plan to build up two force so I can play some games with the kids or down at the club. I fell in love with this figure as soon as I saw and Frostgrave or not it was on my list to get. I love Mark Copplestones sculpting style and have admired his Fantasy 15/18mm range that he did and this guy replicates that stile nicely but in 28mm obviously. The Plastic Barbarians are really nice and I plan to build some associates to accompany this one. I may pick up a further box later on and build a larger force for some bigger size skirmish games. (Rules to be decided or made myself).

This figure comes in a twin pack accompanying a thief which will get painted up at some point. I spend ages chopping off the integral base. I'm not sure if it was worth it or not yet as it took a long time of careful clipping and finally lots of filing.

    1. Thanks mate. Am still thinking about my own Fantasy ruleset may have to run some things by you at some point.

  8. Yeah, I like that mini as well. It's better than their original barbarian which I felt was a bit static in comparison.

    Good choice on the colours. He looks business for sure.
