Distribution deals aren't necessarilly the most exciting news, but after seeing the multi-part plastic miniature kits that Wargames Atlantic is rolling out, I found the need to share! The price point on these figures is fantastic, and I absolutely love these sculpts!
North Star Military Figures, the folks behind the fantastic multi-part minis for Frostgrave, will be handling distribution for Wargames Atlantic new plastic miniatures!

I took some time to look through the upcoming May releases, and I like what's coming out. The Raumjäger Infantry figures have that perfect militaristic dark future vibe for them, and you're looking at 24 miniatures for about $35, perfect for people who want to play sci-fi skirmish games but are burned out on a certain gigantic company.
Plus, these figures would work perfectly for skirmish games like Rogue Stars from Osprey Games, or as stand in troops for just about any science fiction RPG.
The Skeleton Infantry packs 32 multi-part minis into a box for about $35, so you're looking at about a buck a pop for some great looking minis!
This first release looks like it's centered on Greek skellies, but they can be painted up any old way you want. Plus, skeletons blowing horns is just about my favorite thing ever, and this kit has that going for it!
Both of these kits will be released in May, so you should check with your local game store for pre-order information! Chances are, if they carry Frostgrave minis, they can get these awesome new kits from Wargames Atlantic in for you!
