unused plastic Reaper Bones minis wanting to be used for something. I think I found it.
What attracts me to Frostgrave is the frozen city aspect and the campaign system. What didn't initially attract me was that it was just my human wizard and henchmen against your human wizard and henchmen. Once I looked into it more, I saw that there were about 10 different flavors of wizard, all with a list of possible spells, a good variety of henchmen, and everyone seemed to be okay with using whatever minis you want, as long as you clarify with your opponent what is what.

The rules are written in the old school GW style, but I can dig it. Luckily Jarom and I are both veteran gamers, so it shouldn't be too much for either of us to pick up.
So which should I choose? I was at an impasse, and I told my brother of this dilemma. He gave me this answer:
Heavy Gear Blitz kickstarter, and it showed the final contents of the box set I will be receiving. I have loved Heavy Gear for a very very long time, so this news is rather exciting. On top of that one of my favorite YouTube channels released a video battle report of the game's latest edition, and the old feelings started to creep back up. So who knows what will happen when they finally deliver.
So with all these bites, what is a wargamer like me to do? This year should be eventful.
