The Finished Frostgrave Spell Cards

Hi chaps and Chapettes

I have re looked at the cards again as I like them but I wanted something that was a little more dramatic so I have re-jigged them and now I think they are better. I have played about with the background, lightening the blue in the frosty work to make it look more frosty and playing about with the text boxes so you can see more of the image. I think I have done what I wanted to do and I am very happy with the results, so without further ado here they are. Also there is a link so you can download the images which are in PDF format and simply download and print. You will need to print the backs or fronts first and then turn the paper/card around and print on the other side to get the full effect. I hope you like them and find them of use.

Frostgrave Getting into the game.

What a great, fun game Frostgrave is and it ticks so many boxes, on so many different levels it might see me adventuring into fantasy again. I am not going into the rule and how amazing it looks or the mechanics as there are better reviews out there than I could even do. Instead I am going to talk spell cards.

The one thing I dislike with Frostgrave was the lack of imagination when it came to the cards in the books and no sell deck to buy either. So I decided to rectify that by coming up with my own spell card deck. I based it on Trading Card games and I think that they have can out rather nicely.

These cards are for my personal use only, there is no intention of sell these but it would be nice to get your worthy opinions folks and what you think of them.

Well thats all for today so have a nice day.

More from the Leicester People's Assault Column, The Leicester Irish

Yes indeed another unit has been added to the Leicester People's Assault Column and this unit is a unique even within the ranks of the Leicester PAC as every member of the unit is Irish or their have Irish heritage, but more of this shortly. But firstly, why Irish? Well the answer for this quite simple, firstly Leicester has a large Irish community and secondly, I'm Irish too.

The Leicester Irish Workers, is the latest unit recruited of the Leicester PAC, being recruited from the Irish workers of Leicester, the steel workers from Corby as well volunteers from both the Irish Free State and Northern Ireland. The one thing is common with all the members of this unit, which is evident from the flag, is that they are all members of either the Independent Labour Party, if living in Britain or the Irish Republican Socialist Party, if from Ireland. Also there is rumours that members of this unit are also members of the IRA, but whether this is true or not is not known.

The commander of the Leicester Irish Workers, is James "Red Paddy" Walsh was an active and some say militant, trade union leader of the Transport and General Workers Union in Leicester before the start of the civil war. He is a very charismatic leader, a great orator and a driven, hard working man who came over to Britain during the mid 20s, shorter after the end of the Irish Civil War. Not a lot is known why Red Paddy came to Britain after the civil war and James Walsh has never stated why, but there is some evidence that maybe he was a member of the IRA during the Irish War of Independence and the civil war.

Walsh since coming to Leicester has worked for workers rights and getting a better deal and standard for all workers which has meant that his has drifted to the left and has also meant that once the Civil War brought in Britain he was very quick to help in the forming of workers militias based around the factories and the branch. Red Paddy was the leader who raised the workers to stop the boots consignment from being delivered to the British Union of Fascists at the start of the war and was instrumental in Leicester aligning with the Socialist League and actively fighting the King's Government and particularly the BUF.

All this meant that Walsh came to attention of the PAC Commander Corbain, who after a private meeting agree to raise an unit for the Irish workers in the area, who are members of the ILP, LP and IRSP. This meant that these soldiers are hard fighters, especially in hand to hand, and have a espirit de corp based on their shared backgrounds and political belief.

The uniforms of the Leicester Irish Workers is based upon the uniforms of the Irish Free State, with the Mauser rifles actually being supplied by the Free State because of the Irish link. The actually uniform and the equipment is made by the city's textile industry in the Socialist Green that Corbain insists all PAC forces in Leicester wear.

The figures that I have used are the Polish, 10th Motorised Brigade from Wargame Lord games, actually this is the unit that I won from Templars Crusade You Tube Channel as these chaps fit the Irish Free State uniform look that I was looking for. By the way I can recommend that you should check Templars Crusade channel, especially if you like Bolt Action or Warhammer 40K.

Have a nice day
