Just got home from work to be welcomed by a nice little parcel full of Stargrave goodies. Never having bought into any previous Nickstarter I had no real idea of what to expect but Iím definitely not disappointed. The book itself is beautiful, Iíve only had a flick through it so only have a v.rough idea of rules etc(never played FG so itís all new to  me) but itís very well laid out, lovely art and mini pics and Iím v.happy with it. The models, oh my, the models. I went in for this Ďcos I love messing about with plastic kits and these little buggers are very very nice. Lovely detail, minimal/almost non- existent mould lines and just itching for scalpel and glue and then we have the stuff I didnít even have to pay for. All the metal freebies are frankly ace. Easily live up to the pics and in some cases are even better than Iíd hoped for. Add in 3 v.nice loot metals, a sprue of Gnolls and a sprue of cultists plus a d20(which will def come in handy) I canít help thinking Iíve done rather well out of the whole   affair! So after my ramblings Iíd just like to say a quick thanks to NickNorthstar and all his wee helpers for getting it out so quickly, Mr.McCullough for writing the rules and all those involved with the creation of the book(artists painters etc) and the A1 mini makers, just thanks to all involved. My week off next week just started to look even more enjoyable!
PS: Nice to see LAF get a mention too

Got mine :D

Just the rulebook for me as i have far, far too many sci-fi minis already and quite alot are painted to :o

Looking forward to trying this out in the new pub gaming group i am going to once we can go indoors at pubs etc.

From a quick flick through it looks pretty much how i wanted a scifi frostgrave to look when it first came out. Good work  Mr. McCullough

Mine turned up yesterday.

Rules look good, now to decide what to build (and how to base them, 25mm Rendra or 30mm lipped - probably the latter to match up with some of my existing SF).

Best guess weapons from the sprues (with detail photographs) here: https://ultravanillasmurf.blogspot.com/2021/04/stargrave-weapons.html.

Thanks for the detail photos! I miss flamethrowers a bit... And I think there has to come supplements for sniper rifles and missile launchers.

Had my order delivered this morning - which was a pleasant surprise as I joined the NS towards the end.

Me and a mate have split the 3 boxes of figures - and Iím glad we went for this option, as they bodies look fairly different, and there are loads of options for heads and weapons. The figures look very crisp and clean on the sprues. The extras are very nice too, and the Gnoll and Cultist sprues look like they will add to the variety

Mine arrived during the week and I was able to pick it up today. Not had more than a brief flick through the rulebook ( which looks of a very high quality) as I also collected my latest WI which had an interview with the author so I read that first. Now to start on the rulebook then go through the pile of shame (30 years of unpainted mins) to start making crews.  o_o

Nickstarter just came in yesterday. Got my book, my metal bonus figs, my sprue of gnolls, my sprue of cultists, and one box each of crew, mercs, and troopers.

Also got my bareheaded Copplestone future kill troopers that I ordered on the side.
