FROSTGRAVE Fantasy Wargames in the Frozen City

The Frozen City harbours many secrets, and not all of them are ancient. While most adventurers who brave the dangers seek wealth and lost magic, some journey intoFrostgrave for more personal reasons…
This expansion for Frostgrave consists of 40 Ulterior Motives cards, which add variety, depth, and new tactical challenges to wargames in the Frozen City. Each card presents the player with a specific task to accomplish and offers rewards if they succeed. Some of these missions must be revealed to all of the players, others must be kept secret. Will your wizard seek to slay a great demon? Rescue a desperate captive? Bring retribution to an enemy?
All wizards seek power, but what are their ulterior motives?

Mad Dogs With Guns
Photo of Mad Dogs With Guns (BP1581)WARGAMING IN THE GANGSTER ERA Howard Whitehouse Roderick RobertsonIllustrator: Peter Dennis In 1919, the US Government declared the production, distribution, and sale of alcohol illegal. America officially became a ‘dry' land. That didn't stop people from drinking, however, and the rise of the ‘speakeasy' offered huge new opportunities for organized crime. Soon, cities both large and small became battlegrounds as various crime syndicates vied for control of the underground alcohol trade.
In Mad Dogs With Guns, players form their own small gangs of fedora-wearing, tommy gun-wielding gangsters and battle it out with their rivals. With numerous different gangs to choose from, including cops and G-men, a fully integrated campaign system, and rules for special situations such as car chases, the game offers a huge variety of tactical challenges. Bribe public officials, attend a gangland funeral, but always watch your back - there is always another gang waiting to poach your territory…

Allan QuatermainA hero from the old school, Africa is in his blood and a part of his soul. It is said that Quatermain will live for as long Africa endures.  Quatermain has been seen to fall, only to re-appear alive once more. A former big game hunter, he now leads others on adventures across Africa and beyond, armed with his trusty Double Barreled Express "Matilda" Rifle. He is occasionally a reluctant servant of the Crown, but will always fight for justice. A crack shot, he can track any creature anywhere, supposedly even across a pane of glass. Although somewhat aged, he is still as tough and unforgiving as the land he loves.
This is a limited edition figure (only 500 will be made) and comes in a numbered gift box.

 Why I love Death in the Dark Continent.
EXTERMINATE! Across all of Time and Space, war rages and the innocent suffer. We need a few good men, or perhaps just one Timelord and his companions. It’s a Time for Heroes, it’s the time of The Doctor….
THEME: A TALE OF three armies We gave three gamers the chance to create their own forces for the updated Death in the Dark Continent rules. Here’s what they came up with.
THEME: MODELLING IDEAS - AFRICAN TERRAIN Chris Peers shares some ideas on how to make your games set in the Dark Continent actually look like the Dark Continent.
The Lost City of Z. THEME: battle for EGYPT 1801 A pictorial account of the British invasion of Egypt during the Napoleonic Wars, aimed at ousting the French Armee D’Orient, as re-created by Alan Perry.
club focus: BOSCOMBE DOWN & AMESBURY WARGAMES CLUB Our latest article in this series focuses on a UK based club with links to the military.

Two Fat Lardies
Photo of General d’Armee (BP1584)General d’Armee
Designed by Dave Brown, General d’Armee are designed for action from Division upwards for the Napoleonic period.  Dynamic and fast-paced, General d’Armee uses the ADC command and control system first seen in Pickett’s Charge to put you in the shoes of the commanding General, deciding how and when to use your influence to control and win the battle.
Packed with Napoleonic flavour, General d’Armee uses the battalion as the smallest manoeuvre element, the Brigade the lowest tactical command. A typical club night action involving several Brigades per side and a full day or weekend handling a Corps or two with ease.
108 pages in length with two A4 laminated playsheets, General d’Armee includes rules for using both 15mm and 28mm figures, suggestions for organising your armies with a point system and a guide to rating force. An introductory scenario is all you need to get playing with this great new set of rules from the master of the big battlefield.
