The first figure of my Wildling Army

So with Easter out of the way and after a longer brake in painting Game of Thrones related figures, the Westfalia halfmen got in the way, here is the first figure of my Wildling bow unit for Dragon Rampant. The figure is a Northstar Barbarian figure.

The figure is kit bashed with a body and head from the Frostgrave Barbarian set, Arms from the Frostgrave warriors set, and arrows from a Perry war of the roses set.

More to come in the next days. This unit comprises 12 figures.

There will be a new Nickstarter for Frostgrave starting on Monday next week called Forgotten pacts and it will include a new plastic boxed set of Barbarians. Here are pictures of the box art and of some of the figures ( As far as I can tell the figures are metal ones not from the box.

These figures cry Wildlings in the GoT setting to me ! So definitely a box I have to get my fingers on! I found another figure you can get from Northstar. Looks like Brienne of Tarth to me:

The Barbarians should be available in November.

Frostgrave Plastic Soldier Box

Northstar

What is the Frostgrave Soldiers box set all about?
This is a set of 20 plastic 28mm sized figures. Their role in the game is to accompany the Wizards into the frozen city, fight opponents and grab treasure. The player designs his own band of followers, and arms them as they wish. So our box set is designed to allow you to do that. In the box there are 4 ‘frames’ of plastic. Each frame has:
5 bodies
10 heads
25 different arms/ weapons
2 shields
+ selection of bags & equipment.
This means you can make 100’s of unique figures, no two wizards band should ever be the same.

In July, Osprey Games will be releasing Frostgrave, a new fantasy, skirmish wargame where players take on the role of wizards and lead their bands of adventurers into the ruins of an ancient, frozen city in a quest for magical treasure. In support of this game, Osprey Games have teamed up with North Star Military Figures to jointly produce a large range of official Frostgrave Miniatures. The range will include 10 wizards, one representing each of the ten schools of magic in the game, 10 apprentices to support the wizards, and a large number of soldiers, henchmen, creatures and monsters. This includes a box set of multi-part, plastic soldiers, a first for both Osprey Games and North Star!

These figures are being sculpted by some of the biggest names in the industry, including Mark Copplestone, Mark Sims, Mike Owen, Nick Collier and Bob Naismith! The figures will be released at the same time as the game, but in May everyone will have a chance to pre-order them through North Star’s Nickstarter program. ( From Osprey)
