Frostgrave 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?
Ulterior Motives Terrain Set

Many of the Ulterior Motives cards call on you to use certain terrain pieces, both as mission markers and red herrings to send your opponent in the wrong direction. North Star and Osprey have produced a set featuring all the terrain pieces (and one zombie) a player would need to use the Ulterior Motives expansion. All of the terrain pieces are made of resin, the zombie from metal, and all are supplied unpainted.

Mad Dogs With Guns
Photo of Mad Dogs With Guns (BP1581)Mad Dogs With GunsReleased June 2017. Every pre-order for Mad Dogs With Guns will include a note from North Star that will give you a secret webpage address. When you go to that address, you'll find lots of Gangster related offers to celebrate the release of Mad Dogs With Guns.
WARGAMING IN THE GANGSTER ERA Author: Howard Whitehouse, Roderick Robertson Illustrator: Peter Dennis In 1919, the US Government declared the production, distribution, and sale of alcohol illegal. America officially became a ‘dry' land. That didn't stop people from drinking, however, and the rise of the ‘speakeasy' offered huge new opportunities for organized crime. Soon, cities both large and small became battlegrounds as various crime syndicates vied for control of the underground alcohol trade. In Mad Dogs With Guns, players form their own small gangs of fedora-wearing, tommy gun-wielding gangsters and battle it out with their rivals. With numerous different gangs to choose from, including cops and G-men, a fully integrated campaign system, and rules for special situations such as car chases, the game offers a huge variety of tactical challenges. Bribe public officials, attend a gangland funeral, but always watch your back - there is always another gang waiting to poach your territory…

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.
