Stargrave: The Last Prospector
« on: March 16, 2022, 10:46:35 AM »
I haven't seen this mentioned yet, apologies if I've missed it.

The second Stragrave supplement has appeared for pre-order on Amazon UK, with a delivery date of April 28. There were some pictures of some female crew on a Repaer forum post this morning (linked from Reaper, as I don't know the source of the picture)

Hopefuly Nick will be offering a deal (hint, hint  :D)

Quote
The Dahlgren Belt was once a vast asteroid mining operation that supplied the entire sector with rare metals and various elemental fuels. However, the isolation of the last war caused the corporation to wither, and the various outposts and colonies were eventually left to look after themselves. Some became true collectives, or limited democracies, while others have fallen to the rule of gangsters, warlords, and despots. In all cases, the limited resources of air and organic material has made life difficult.

In this supplement for Stargrave, the crews must travel from asteroid-to-asteroid, and even down to the system's single, barely inhabitable planet, searching for a man who claims to have discovered a 'big score'. During their journey, players will fight through numerous different environments - including asteroid mines, zero gravity, and even hellish jungle. Captains must curry favour with the various small political factions that hold power in the Belt. Only through a combination of wits, diplomacy, and weapons can players hope to reach the last prospector and gain a share of his claim.

North Star will start the pre-orders for this new book on the 4th of April.

We're hoping to have the plastic box set Crew II ready at the same time (there's still some work to be done on the moulds). This will be the all female crew.

We're also making 6-7 new metal figures for the release. they are the new Soldiers and Captain Classes from the book.

There will be some special deals as well to tempt you into ordering from us rather than Amazon etc.

I'll post details here when we're ready to roll.

Our pre-order will run through April, so you should be able to order both later this month. We've not discussed with Great Escape taking delivery of the Cowgirls yet.

The new heads in the Darksider bundle is what I wish the plastic Frostgrave cultist sprue heads had looked like!  (Or, at least, I wish the sprue included a few looking like that.)

I know it's a long shot, but I'd love to buy an STL set of them.

Excellent, and they are available to pre-order now. https://www.northstarfigures.com/prod.php?prod=16484

Thanks.

Definitely the bundle deal and a couple of additional boxes.

I did look at the Darksider heads, but I am not keen on adding metals heads to plastic (or resin) bodies.

I am definitely after something that looks like the Laserburn Red Redemptionists.

... even more variety can be achieved by mixing in components from other Stargrave female box sets.
Tell us more...

Is there a bundle for just the metal figures or metal figures and the book?

There's only the bundles on the website available.

The book is at a discounted price till next Monday, you could order that with the metal figures & still get it all at a good price.
