In this post, I take a look at the Oathmark Elf Light Infantry in Frostgrave. The idea being… If you buy North Star Military Figures‘ Oathmark Elf Light Infantry how could you use the figures in Frostgrave. These miniatures are fairly modular, so I am sure you could kitbash them well with the official Frostgrave miniatures. That said, I look at only what is in the Oathmark Elf Light Infantry box set for this post.
Before going further, let’s discuss WYSIWYG. WYSIWYG stands for What You See is What You Get. It simply means that the miniature represents in game exactly how the figure looks. In both Frostgrave and Oathmark you don’t need to go full WYSIWYG. What is important is that both you and your opponent can tell what the miniature represents.
As you may remember from my review of the Light Elf Infantry for Oathmark, the box comes with 30 multi-part miniatures. On the sprues are enough bows and weapons to make 30 infantry armed with bows, 30 infantry armed with swords and shields or any combination between the two. These models come unarmored, but I think it would be reasonable to claim that they are wearing light armor if you wish.
Oathmark Elf Light Infantry Loadout in Frostgrave
If you build the miniatures as intended for Oathmark, this box set has the parts to build Men-at-Arms and Archers.
Building the miniatures straight up as they are intended for Oathmark would give you the two options above for Frostgrave. Being a little curious, I wondered what else I could make from the box without resorting to kitbashing.
Other Frostgrave Options within the Oathmark Elf Light Infantry box set
Using the contents of the Oathmark Elf Light Infantry box set I found that I was also able to make Thugs, Treasure Hunters, and Rangers. It is a bit of a stretch, but I also found that I could make Thieves, Wizards and Knights.
Comparing the Box Contents Versus Soldier Types in Frostgrave
The Second Edition of Frostgrave contains 6 Standard Soldier Types and 9 Specialist Soldiers. You can hire up to 8 soldiers, but only 4 of them may be Specialist Soldiers. The rest must be Standard Soldiers. This means that you could have a minimum of 4 to a maximum of 8 Standard Soldiers.
So, how many Standard versus Specialist Soldier types can you build with this box? It looks like 3 Standard Soldier types and 4 Specialist Soldier types if you include the model types I stretched to reach.
- Treasure Hunter
If you start to kitbash with the other Frostgrave and Oathmark Miniatures sets, I am sure you will be able to build even more soldier types with these bodies.
Wrapping it up…
Thank you for joining me in this look at using Oathmark Elf Light Infantry in Frostgrave. Personally, I love playing and dabbling in multiple gaming systems. When I can find synergies in the models that I can take from one game into another, that excites me.
