In Her Majesty's Name: Thule Society

The Society of Thule is one of the preset combat groups made by North Star for the In Her Majesty's Name steampunk rules. I was fortunate enough to be given a set for my birthday.

There really was a Thule Society. It was one of those barking mad German Aryan racial superiority and New Age Volk & Fatherland groups that were so popular in Germany in the early 20th Century. It morphed into a political party, the DAP which became the NDAP, better known as the Nazi Party. It's membership reads like a who's who of early Nazis. It was shut down by Hitler in 1920ish presumably on the grounds that there was only room for one group of power-crazed insane loonies in Germany.

Pseudoscience is not harmless!

These are the three primary characters in the North Star version. I had to remove some flash but the sculpting is pretty neat, as you can see.

The Society uses Jägers when it needs a bit o'muscle. Note the gadget on their left wrists. Jägers are German elite light infantry.

These are resurrection machines. When a Jäger dies in proximity to the Mad Prof's ARC machine he is revived as a zombie.

The models come in a rather natty video box which has a photo of professionally painted figures on the back. I basically kept the same colour scheme, albeit simplified. In my experience professional painters use way to much detail for Johnny Two-Thumbs to hope to emulate.


  1. Excellent painted figures John! Love the doc!


  2. Really nice job on these. Mine are still pristine in their box as I am slightly too frightened to start them!
