Renedra: Upcoming Fantasy Frostgrave Plastic Barbarians Pictures Previewed


Renedra previewed these work in progress pictures of the making of the upcoming plastic Frostgrave Forgotten Pacts  - plastic 28mm Barbarians!

With the kind permission of Nick at Northstar and Osprey we thought we would share the progress of a project we are currently manufacturing - these are Barbarians - this project has affectionally been called 'a beast' by our pantographer Pete, he and Terry are cutting the inserts that you can see in the pictures. These show the copy aid that we have manufactured to use to cut the insert, the pictures are at mid stage of cutting, but already the detail is showing especially in the cloak, and still there are 4 more cutter stages to go before the insert is finished, we are quite excited with this project, the level of the finished detail will need to be very high and will be one of the hardest inserts we have cut.





As you can see in the supplied pictures these modular barbarians will be clothed for cold weather with a mixture of furs and cloaks. These miniatures will be armed with a nice range of primitive weaponry such as stone tipped spears and stone carved daggers. Based on the composition of the previously released plastic boxed sets, a box will contain four identical sprues each containing five bodies along with plenty of close and ranged combat weapons along with some other bits and pieces. 







In my personal opinion this will be the best plastic miniature  boxed set to be released for Frostgrave. These upcoming barbarians are sculpted by Giorgio Bassani who also sculpted the plastic gnolls and several metal Frostgrave characters. Keep checking Wargame News and Terrain as we are constantly searching for more news about Frostgrave and its miniatures.


The previously released plastic boxed sets are the following and were released to support the Frostgrave game expansions starting with the original Soldiers, Cultists and the new modular Gnolls. Note that parts of these sets can be combined with other released sets.

Frostgrave Soldiers - A Frostgrave Soldier's role is to accompany his Wizard employer into the frozen city, to fight their opponents, beat off wandering monsters and grab any treasure found. This box set of hard plastic figures allows you to build 20 different Soldiers to play in the game Frostgrave. To help you design the perfect Wizard's warband, the box set contains 100 weapon/ arm variants, 40 heads and over 30 pieces of equipment. No two Wizard's warbands should ever be the same! The plastic figures are 28mm sized, supplied unpainted and require assembly with glue. We recommend you use glue designed for plastic to get the best results. Available here

Assemble and convert these high quality Fantasy plastic boxed sets and pitch them on the tabletop battlefield!



Frostgrave Cultists - Death cultists are mortal men and women who have sworn their service to an undead master, usually in the hope of achieving some form of immortality. They normally come from the lowest rung of society and have few useful skills and little combat training. What they lack in ability, however, they make up for in fanaticism and fearlessness in the face of death. When sent out by their masters, death cultists generally conceal their identities behind masks and hoods, but proclaim their allegiances by adorning themselves with bones, chains and other symbols of death.

The Frostgrave Cultists box set contains enough parts to make 20 different figures. There are multiple heads, arms, weapons and accoutrements per frame, no two warbands will ever be the same. Cultists feature in Thaw of the Lich Lord as opponents in the scenarios and as random encounters. They should also be used as the soldiers for Warbands of evil wizards, especially ones who've embraced Lichdom. The Cultists have been designed to compliment the Frostgrave Soldiers plastic box set. By that we mean the arms, heads and equipment are interchangeable, giving you even MORE choice to built a unique and personal Warband.

And as an extra bonus, the Cultist plastic frame includes heads and arms to convert your Soldiers or Cultists into skeletons and Zombies. True Frostgrave Undead! Perfect to represent your 'risen from the dead' ex-soldiers. The plastic figures are 28mm sized, supplied unpainted and require assembly with glue. We recommend you use glue designed for plastic to get the best results. Available here



Frostgrave Gnolls - The Frostgrave Gnolls box set contains enough parts to make 20 different figures. There are multiple heads, arms, weapons and accoutrements per frame, no two warbands will ever be the same.  Gnolls feature in Into The Breeding Pits as opponents in the scenarios and as random encounters. They should also be used as the soldiers for Warbands of Beastcrafter Wizards. The plastic figures are 28mm sized, supplied unpainted and require assembly with glue. We recommend you use glue designed for plastic to get the best results. Available here
