Battle of the So Many Skeletons

This past weekend I got to participate in a very enjoyable three-way game of Frostgrave at Just Games - the first of, hopefully, many to come, as we hope to make this at least a monthly event. 

I'd brought a big container of skeletons - the ones I'd painted for Dragon Rampant - so we played the Mausoleum scenario from the core rulebook; a mausoleum in the center of the board (in this instance, played by a 3D-printed Cthulhu idol) spits out an animated skeleton every round while having most of the treasure tokens on the board clustered around it.  Between Tom and myself we put out a pretty good spread of terrain though given the extremely long-range Imps I managed to drop we probably could have done a slightly better job of breaking up line of sight. 

my 3D-printed terrain still needs to be painted.

I brought my trusty Summoner warband, while Tom showed up with an Enchanter crew and Dave, who was just learning the game, selected the Elementalist warband I showcased in my last post.  I got phenomenally lucky with my dice rolls for the most part (breaking the streak of rolling a "1" when trying to Summon a demon and getting attacked by the damned thing!) and got a lot of spells off while keeping most of my warband neatly out of line of sight.  Dave's warband took a beating with only his apprentice making it off the board alive, and softened up Tom's warband enough to where my Summoner could finish him off.  When all was said and done, I carried five treasure tokens off the board out of a total of seven.  I doubt I'll get so lucky again; plus I feel a little guilty about spamming the Imp spell as hard as I did.
