A Good, Bad Guy

Posted on December 21st, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

A good, bad guy is great for most RPG and having a 28mm figure to represent them on tabletop is even better. I talked about the idea a while back HERE. In my game that bad guy is a necromancer (possibly the best bad guy for fantasy) called Vetis Bane. …

More new releases from North Star…

Photo of STAR TREK ADVENTURES MINIATURES: ROMULAN STRIKE TEAM (MUH051080)Photo of African War Elephant (VXA029)What already!? I hear you cry. I know we sent out a newsletteronly last week, but if you recall, I apologised because we had to miss out so much stuff last time.
Kev and I were chatting, and we decided we’d send out another newsletter in quick succession to cover the excellent products we didn’t tell you about.
OAK103 - Great Goblin, Shaman, DrummerOAK104 - Goblin ChampionsTop of the tree is just to let you all know the pre-orders for Oathmark Goblins have been sent out. I’m very pleased about this because I wasn’t sure we could do it, but we have. I expect most people in the UK and Europe will get theirs before Christmas. I can’t make the same promise further afield. I’m sorry to say some orders to places, like Canada in particular, have taken 6 weeks to arrive this year, I can’t imagine with the Christmas post it will have got better. Fingers crossed everyone will be spending their holiday break gluing and painting Goblins!
Photo of Primus Dominus (WBGOR101)Photo of Gladiator Ally (WBGOR106)We are taking pre-orders now for Gangs of Rome, a new game and figure range from our friends atWar Banner. The bundle deals are the perfect way to get you really into the game, and you get two limited edition character figures with each one. We’re planning to get everything out to you in January 2018.
Photo of The Dark Confederate Posse (DRAC203)Photo of Supernatural Unwelcome Guests (DRAC206)Dracula’s America. Are you playing yet? If not, perhaps all you were waiting for was a Posse all worked out for you. Well, we’ve done it! Have a look below at the new Dracula’s America posse deals. On the subject of Dracula’s America, there will be asupplement for the game with new posses, new adventures, coming out in January. We will be stocking it of course and we will be doing new figures for the new Posses. Keep following the newsletters for more information.
Photo of Saga (BP1325)Photo of Varjazi & Basileus (BP1388)Saga. The most popular Dark Age skirmish game in the history of wargaming is planned for a revamp next year. Saga 2 is coming out early 2018. If you don’t have Saga 1, now is the time to buy it because we’re selling off our last copies at half price. It’d be an idea to add it to your games library, and there’s a good few months of Dark Age gaming before Saga 2 comes out.
Photo of STAR TREK ADVENTURES MINIATURES: THE ORIGINAL SERIES BRIDGE CREW (MUH051084)Photo of Significant Clues (PMH02)So have a look through the newsletter, there’s new stuff from Team Yankee, Victrix, Modiphius’ Star Trek, Pulp Figures and much more.
I wish you a Merry Christmas, we will contact you before the ‘big day’ so you’ll get another cheery message this year, and I hope we’ve something here you want for your present under the Christmas Tree.
Cheers
Nick
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

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.
