Osprey Games / Northstar Plastic Dwarves

A bit out of nowhere and unexpected, Osprey Games and Northstar Military Figures announced a new range of fantasy plastic miniatures, beginning with a set of dwarven infantry. This range will be released later this year, but as a special for Salute 2017, there would be a pre-release of single sprues.

The sprues were sold at 5 GBP each, so I assume a later box price of 20 GBP for a box of 20 (similar to the Frostgrave plastic pricing). I was able to get a sprue at Salute, and want to share my impression with you in this brief review.

Mustering Vulfgangs Warband

After mustering the Romans for the SAGA project, it is time to call the German warriors of Vulfgangs warband to arms.

As mentioned in the article about planing a german warband, I started assembling the plastic and metal miniatures from the matching Warlord Games boxed set. As the metal torsos all wore fur, I added those fur cloaks to all of the miniatures. Fur is quite easy to do and there are several ways to do so, among others using a press mold by Micro Art Studios. I used a sculptor tool with a sharp, pin like tip.

Frostgrave Barbarians

The latest supplement for Frostgrave was once again financed by Nickstarter, Northstar's own crowdfunding solution, and brought along with the "Forgotten Pacts" expansion a brand new box of plastic miniatures. This set of multi-part barbarians will be covered in this review.

Frostgrave

This year, Osprey Games had a surprising release of Frostgrave, a fantasy skirmish in a frozen city. The release of a wargaming rule set, is nothing new for Osprey, so why is this one so popular?

Frostgrave Blisters and Individuals

Frostgrave is more than just the plastic kit. Northstar offers quite a lot of Blisters with the initial release, so i beefed up the Soldiers with a bunch of magicians and wizards.

Of running in shadows and frosty graves

Frostgrave was recently released by Osprey and Northstar Miniatures and the Nickstarter for the expansion, Thaw of the Lich Lord, is online and already through the first stretch goals. As i am still struggling, if i can resist to pledge for the expansion before i even started building the basic rules and two warbands ... it's a a hard decision 😀
