Mutant Q30 Dec 2019 8:28 a.m. PST

I've recently been bitten by the Kung Fu bug and I want to build some warbands for "A Fistful of Kung Fu." Besides the figures that North Star has to offer, what other lines should I be looking into?

Have a look through the Golgo Island Range from ERM its a mixed bag but there are a few miniatures that are good for martial artists like this one

Mutant, the North Star miniatures/gangs made for the Fistful of Kung Fu rules are very nice sculpts that paint up very well. If you wanted more modern Kung fu gangs, I suggest Copplestone's Future/Modern gangs as groups of Kung Fu and Gun Fu fighters. For the more old China style of Kung Fu, I suggest the Back of Beyond bandits and Dare to Die fanatics as fine Kung Fu gangs.

There's a KS-backed 28mm miniature board game inspired by kung-fu video games and movies called "Street Masters" that includes over 65 miniatures (heroes, bosses and minions) that provides a cheaper option as the figs are cast in one-piece plastic.

If you are lucky you might come across some of Atomico's Kung Fu figures. He did two Kickstarters IIRC with the figures limited to backers.

Hasslefree has a bunch of modern martial artists. Not the cheapest, but very nice figures: link

All great suggestions, folks. Thanks.

I have found some individual miniatures through Heroclix, especially the Indie line. Troll and Toad sells individual figures.

I just went down this road, out of a desire to game in the Big Trouble in Little China universe.

I bought some Hasslefree figures, the Studio Z Turf gang (there is also a Yakuza gang), the Fistful of Kung Fu box sets (Yakuza, Fistful with Demons, and the Samurai skirmish), some Pulp Alley extra peasant fighters, some of the Chinese Pulp Figures blisters, some Wargames Foundry street violence packs, and some Crooked Dice figures. Both Hasslefree and Studio Z do Kurt Russell figures from Big Trouble, btw.
