First picture of new plastic Goblins

Here is the first picture of the forthcoming Fantasy battle system by Northstar and Osprey:

Goblins

I like them a lot and will definitely get a box or two. The picture is of 3 ups though and the base will be less thick in the plastic originals then.

The Dwarves are Marching to War!

Each sprue from this set allows you to build 5 Dwarves armed with spears, hand weapons, or bows, with a huge variety of head options. They are also working on similar boxes for Elves and Goblins!

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)
