Fireforge is really improving both the quantity and the quality. These are really nice models, a huge improvement on their historical line.

Again, I have a slight problem with the infantrymen's armour. I guess you can do quilt like that, but I hope the box has bodies with other armour types too. Like mail... :)

The Oathmark humans from Northstar are launching today.

Compatible with the Frostgrave sets - so Soldiers, Cultists, Barbarians, Crewmen - the mind boggles at the conversion opportunities.






Interesting helmet





It seems we have a veritable feast of new human soldiers - now we just need a good big battle rules set .  :engel:




why does all the best nerd stuff come from England!! love these models  :dry:

Ask them - they have a huge number of models and don't seem able to show all of them online.

Pretty sure they would be able to find the moulds for you.

New plastic set coming from NorthStar - designed for Frostgrave, but mix-n-match with their other previous sets.





Female warriors!

It also looks like there will be some accompanying metal female characters for the latest Nickstarter.

Looks like all the options of weaponry are available for all 5 bodies.
I also assume these will work with previous Frostgrave plastic figures - should lead to some wonderful conversion options
How many dudes can you make using the North Star Oathmarks, @Midaski? I know that's one sprue, but how many sprues per box?

And @Victor, are those barbute heads in resin?

@Noble Korhedron, did some googling for you:

How many dudes can you make using the North Star Oathmarks, @Midaski? I know that's one sprue, but how many sprues per box?

The Humans (males) box has 30 figures, so six sprues of five figures. This is the same for all the races, so I'd guess the females will be the same. From the preview above, it seems they come five per sprue.

And @Victor, are those barbute heads in resin?

Yes, Mad Robot bits are cast in resin.

@Zygmund, you totally rock!!

Also, checkout the Warlord(?) Landsknechts with Zweihanders, and Landsknecht missile troops on page 65 of this thread; they are the most Empire-esque troops I have seen from just about any manufacturer that is not GW!!

Can someone tell me, who makes these minis here? The guy says "Gamezone miniatures", but I don't think that is right.

Thank you! Reaper would have been my guess too, but finding something on their site is quite tricky!

Edit: There are more - quite decent looking knights I have to say:

A bit too much of Brettonia about them for my taste, though...

Definitely more Bretonian in nature.

Lord Strongheart might fit Empire - if you clip his wings...

But perhaps Victor is looking for models for a Bretonnian army?  ::heretic::

Silly female armour. But definitely works for alternative Sisters of Battle.
