The latest releases from North Star Military Figures...

Photo of The Curse of Dead Man's Hand  (BP-CDMH001)Photo of Sword & Spear Fantasy (BP1575)There is a huge amount of new products to show you this week. 
new plastic box sets, a new fantasy game, three new rule supplements and a new range of Wild West Horror figures, plus figures across our metal figure ranges. 
All great stuff!
Before you have a look at what is available now, I'll just let you know that next week we'll be starting the Nickstarter pre-order campaign for the next Frostgrave release, the card deck titled Ulterior Motives.
Ulterior Motive cardsUlterior Motive cardsThe Frozen City harbours many secrets, and not all of them are ancient. While most adventurers who brave the dangers seek wealth and lost magic, some journey into Frostgrave for more personal reasons…
This expansion for Frostgrave consists of 40 Ulterior Motive cards, which add variety, depth, and new tactical challenges to wargames in the Frozen City. Each card presents the player with a specific task to accomplish and offers rewards if they succeed. Some of these missions must be revealed to all of the players, others must be kept secret. Will your wizard seek to slay a great demon? Rescue a desperate captive? Bring retribution to an enemy?
All wizards seek power, but what are their ulterior motives?
We'll be running this as a 'mini-Nickstarter', meaning there won't be quite as much stuff as a 'full on' Nickstarter, but still well worth placing your order through us, especially in the Early Bird period. 
Looking forward as well, we are working on getting ready for release:
Dragon Portes for the WW2 French army from Crusader MiniaturesKornovik the Barbarian Outcast for FrostgraveSoviet Infantry from Artizan DesignPlastic Dwarves from North Star/Osprey, Two new regiments of Danes for the War of 1864 from North Star.
Thanks for reading.

Death in the Dark Continent
Photo of Death in the Dark Continent. (BP1569)Death in the Dark Continent is a 176 page, full colour, hard back book that takes the reader deep into late 19th Century Africa.
At it's heart is a wargame, a game that allows the player to field armies of miniature figurines representing African Tribes, European Invaders and Native Kingdoms.
With an emphasis on the people of Africa as well as the Colonial Invaders, Death in the Dark Continent is a unique publication offering 80 different army lists covering all the vastly different forces in Sub-Saharan Africa 1870 to 1899.
Death in the Dark Continent also includes a historical background to the situation in Africa 1870-99, a who's who of the major players and a 'bonus' skirmish game.

Get together anybody you can, time to put petty rivalries aside and stand together against an enemy who shows no mercy, who will take it all, and leave you with nothing, not even your soul. The Curse of Dead Man's Hand and it's contents can be used in several ways.
Great Escape Games Wargames Rules
Photo of Sword & Spear Fantasy (BP1575)Sword & Spear Fantasy
This rule set, Sword & Spear Fantasy, is based on the Sword & Spear ancient and medieval wargames rules which are designed for playing out large battles of the period from about 3000BC to 1500AD. They are an evolution of that ruleset, with rules added to cover all of the required fantasy elements, but at its heart it is the same core mechanisms. Therefore it has a basis in reality, and should be expected to give realistic outcomes, or at least outcomes that seem reasonable compared to actual historical battles and the fantasy battles of literature and film.

Photo of Battlegroup Tobruk (BP1579)• BACKGROUND A general overview of the early North Africa campaign, from the Italian invasion of Egypt, through the long siege of Tobruk, to Operation Crusader and the Afrika Korps' counterstroke that would bring them to the Gazala Line in early 1942.
• ARMY LISTS Nine army lists designed to be played with the character of the principal combatants for North Africa and Crete: the Deutsche Afrikakorps, the Italian Ariete armoured division, Italian Infantry divisions to face British (and Commonwealth) armoured and infantry divisions. Also, the LRDG and Auto Saharan patrols.
• SPECIAL RULES New special rules to adapt the core Battlegroup rules to the North African battlefields.

Welcome to the Pulp Figures! My name is Bob Murch and I’m the sculptor, mould maker, caster, shipper and chief bottle washer of this plucky, rag-tag enterprise. Pulp Figures turned 10 years old in 2012 and since its beginning, when I often had to explain the term ‘Pulp’ to many gamers, Pulp Adventure gaming has become an established genre familiar to gamers with many excellent rules systems to choose from. The inspiration for Pulp Figures remains early 20th Century ‘Pulp Era’ adventure film and fiction and the minis remain oriented towards table-top gaming. This is not to say that role-players won't find the miniatures exciting and useful. Everything under the Pulp Figures banner is character driven with fun and personality given priority over strict historical accuracy.
