Last night I finished my Apothecary for Frostgrave. I decided to do a few things slightly different this time. I went with a brighter colour palette than usual and did not paint him to match anyone else in my warband.
I also feel like he could be used as either a healer or some sort of merchant in a fantasy RPG. It was another great addition to my miniature collection because even though I have a ton of figures he looks genuinely different from anything else in my collection.

As an update to how my actual games of Frostgrave have been going I just completed the third Thaw Of The Lich Lord scenario 'Loot The Cart'. In a 3 player game I had the worst outcome I've had in a single game of Frostgrave to date. All but 2 of my 10 models were taken out of action (including both my wizard and apprentice) and I failed to secure a single treasure counter. To add injury to insult my apprentice got smacked in the face hard enough to bust his jaw so he now has a further -1 penalty to all his casting rolls.
I think this outcome really highlights the inherent balance of the system and how well it scales as a campaign game. Stan beat me fairly badly in the previous game as well and so far the real impact is that his wizard is a few (3 or 4 I can't remember) levels higher than mine and he has a few more cool items than I do. When we actually put models on the table the game still plays evenly and I don't feel in anyway over matched.
....now if I can just get the dice to co-operate in at least one game....
