Thanks guys! The Dark is incoming, but first a question:

I really hope you have some minis in mind for the Fetch. My favourite from this world (or other world as it happens).

Actually I did and now it seems to have vanished from the internet. I'm incredibly frustrated to say the least. For a long time I'd been eying up this Northstar Horror (http://theminiaturespage.com/boards/msg.mv?id=446037) but now can't find it on the Northstar figures page at all.

Anyone know where it's being sold now (if at all)? Seriously gutted that I might have missed out on an incredible sculpt (and, in my eyes, one that is picture perfect for the Fetch from Myth TFL).

Wasn't there some zombies in that range (Horror Stories) as well? Seems like the whole category disappeared.

I can only find this - maybe Nick can tell what happened?

Now here's a lovely thread - I can only join the others already applauding the miniatures, the paintjobs and the background story.  :)
I enjoyed the Myth games too although I can't recall to ever have managed to finish them.


Regarding that missing model, I recall seeing Northstar having a considerable (to my memory at least) sale on that entire Horror range so perhaps they were withdrawn from sale?
May be best to inquire from Nick directly as I doubt they're all gone.

Thanks a bunch! Both Myth: The Fallen Lords and Myth II: Soulblighter are still available and patched to run on the latest hardware, as of 2018 :)

Is Nick Eyre on this forum? What's his handle? I may well get in touch, it's such a great model!

Ha - I kept checking both GOG and Steam for them but it seems I need to find them the old-fashioned way. Thanks for the advice, will have to look into that someday.  :D

To my knowledge Nick is nicknorthstar here.

I posted a picture of the model in question to the Frostgrave Facebook group at the weekend. It seems that itís been withdrawn from production and it isnít known what the creator of the model is going to do with it.

I actually never played the original games; it seems that they just flew under my radar since I love me some RTS games.
