I know Stargrave comes out in April and is the sci fi version of Frostgrave. Where can I find out more about it please? The Osprey site doesn't have much about it.

There's a facebook page: facebook.com/Stargrave

And the author's blog is here: link

There are also a few videos on youtube from people with advanced copies.

There is a thread on Lead Adventure Forum that Nick from Northstar started that has some previews and info that might be of use?

I doubt I'll play the game but I am interested in the new plastic miniatures Northstar will release

That's real helpful thanks guys. Those plastic minis look great!

Is it me or do the weapons still look contemporary? At least Star Wars did a pretty good job of concealing their real world inspiration!

*cough* Han Solo's Mauser C96… :-)

Those plastic sets look nice! Any guesses as to price? The article said there were 20 minis in a box, and lots more options than those shown. Which is a fantastic variety!

Prince Rupert of the Rhine12 Mar 2021 1:00 a.m. PST

My guess is they will be priced the same as the Northstar Frostgrave plastic sets so about £20.00 GBP a box. The word on the street is the will be compatible size wise with the fantasy sets which would open up some interesting conversion potential.

I been reading up more on Stargrave now and am gettign stoked. Frostgrave wasn't my bag but I'm all over the sci fi.

Woo Hoo!!! I got my Stargrave rule book yesterday.

Got my Amazon Kindle version of the rule book a couple of days ago. Any figures can be used with the rules.

Norrins – Weapons are equivalent to contemporary small arms. No heavy weapons in the rules at this point.

So is this a role-playing game or something else?

andresf07 May 2021 5:06 p.m. PST

No, it's not a role-playing game. It's an action-oriented miniatures skirmish game, like the popular Frostgrave.
