Stargrave Nickstarter!


The Stargrave 'Nickstarer' has begun! What's a Nickstarter, you ask? It's a pre-order program with bonuses.

Essentially, if you order one of the basic Stargrave packages (the simplest is a copy of the book and a box of plastic minis), then you will also received all of the 'freebies' that are unlocked during the campaign. As we are already on day three, and the campaign exploded out of the gate, that already includes 5 metal miniatures, 3 loot tokens, a sprue of plastic gnolls, and a d20! And, it is very close to picking up yet another metal miniature. Considering the campaign has almost three weeks left, there is a good chance that more freebies will be unlocked.

What a Nickstarter isn't is crowd funding. Everything in the campaign is being produced and paid for independent of this campaign. Most of it is already produced and the last pieces are being pulled together now. So, you won't be waiting a year or more to get your stuff, it'll hopefully be shipping as soon as the campaign ends.  

So, come join the fun!

You can order direct from North Star.

In the US you can order from Badger Games or Brigade Games.

In Germany you can order from Minituricum

You can also potentially order it through your local game store if they work with North Star.

  1. I've been champing at the bit for this; so I'm happy as a spacepig in a recycling node. I've taken the opportunity to add a bunch of Wargames Atlantic boxes to my nickstarter order; so I can go wild with customization options.

    1. Did you get the spiders? I just got a box, but haven't tried to assemble them yet.

  3. The Nickstarter is lush, and I haven't been this excited about a game release for a very long time. I can't get enough loot markers either!

    Just for the record, I'm ordering from Europe (Ireland) and ordering from Miniaturicum is a much better alternative for placing a Nickstarter than Northstar these days, due to Brexit imposed charges.

    I expect that this is true for all European Nickstarter enthusiasts.

  6. I’m not seeing options for single-handed weapons. I see daggers, but no swords, axes or hammers. Stargrave is focused on range combat, but many soldier types still make use of melee weapons beyond the basic dagger. Anyone know if this going to be addressed with a scifi weapon arm sprue later on? I don’t think the Frostgrave arms would be a good match, nor WH40K bits though that may work out once we have the minis in hand.

  7. It doesn't look like any of these vendors offer a print+pdf bundle on the rules - do I have that right? This happened to me with FG v2 - I pre-ordered through Osprey thinking I would be able to bundle when the release date came and couldn't...

    1. It'll be exactly the same as Frostgrave - digital editions (except for Kindle) aren't offered for pre-order, so the print & PDF bundle option will go up on the Osprey website on day of release.

    2. Thanks Phil! I'll go that route to get the digital copy right away then. Thanks again!

  8. Thanks for the heads-up about MiniaturicuM. It's good to know there's a channel for Nickstarters in the EU.

  9. I grabbed the 3 box sets deal. Ordered the Rulebook a few days before that. I'm pretty excited about this game. You keep writing the games and I will keep buying them.
