  1. I beg to differ. That is not the old-timey art, but rather the middle-ages art. These are the genuine old-timey art and the characters from the version of Talisman we have. They predate the three-dimensional figures. I don't know about later editions of Talisman, but ours made no secret of the fact that it was set in the Warhammer and Warhammer 40K universe. Actually there were 3-D minis for the images you posted. They weren't in the game itself but were sold separate in blisters and a boxed set. Not the greatest of sculpts but Citadel did make them.

  2. The elf is a Warhammer Fantasy fig. It's a Wood Elf Wardancer. At the time was considered a really cool fig. Thanks Garden; didnt know that. That is the reason for this thread; learning little bits of cool tidbits YW. I'm just an old guy who actually remembers seeing alot of those figs on the shelf. William
  3. Just an FYI, The Partha "Space Marines" were a licensed product for Steve Jackson Games called Space Knights. They were supposed to be for a miniatures game called Hot Lead that would have generic rules sort of like GURPS and then have setting books for it. The first book was to be Space Knights and their cyber-undead enemies. The game never materialized and SJGames won't comment on why not. So those failed Space Marines actually represent SJGames failure not Ral Partha's. William
  4. "There's no pawns in the game of life, just those little cars" This was seriously said once in response to someone quoting Mongo. After the shock wore off we laughed our tails off. To this day I don't think the person who said it knows why we laughed. William
  5. Might also look at the APAC TAG from Rezolution. Link below http://store.aberrantgames.com/abg3009.html William
  6. Okay, now Reaper is just being mean. The Cyber-Troll shows up as released but the buy it now button won't work. Please release this fig as soon as possible but not so soon as to rush the quality. William
  7. Just wondering if anyone could give me a rough date on when the linked mini will be available? I can not wait for this one. I would love to see some "not-shadowrun" Chronoscope figures. Thanks, William Link http://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/previews/latest/50287
  8. Just wanted to say that I am having my first experience with Reaper customer support and so far I have no complaints. It involves a mini missing from a boxed set and although I don't have mini in hand yet ( I only contacted them Sunday evening, so they haven't had time to get it to me yet) I have recieved multiple emails telling me the status of my issue. So far I have to give the folks at Reaper a thumbs up. Also Reaper staff and especially Bryan are active on the forums and seem to address any issues rapidly. I'd suggest to the OP to give Reaper a chance and consider the time difference and hopefully things can be worked out to everyones satisfaction. Everyone is human. William
  9. How about Hawk the Slayer? Without a doubt a B movie, but very enjoyable. William
  10. Very true. The Specialist games are the best GW does and Blood Bowl is the best of the best. William
  11. It isn't her tongue, it's a cigar. The mini is suppossed to be a female rendition of Clint Eastwood's "Man with no Name" character. FYI, William
  12. All these points are spot on. Rez is a really cool game, well worth a look. William
  13. Okay, This isn't a dig at anyone at all because I'm the guiltiest of all of being so. Nowhere in the rules for building troops is race mentioned. Goblins can lead bull orcs, elves can lead half-elves, Lupines can lead crossbowmen and so on. Many of us, my self included get themes into our heads and overlook the rules. Not that themes are bad, they give the game great flavor. William
  14. Okay, this may sound really bad considering the subject but I'm going to ask anyway. Of all the factions that have been expanded past the rulebook, ie. Necropolis, Crusaders, Nefsofar, Reven and Overlords, the Reven and Necropolis have only one alternate Warlord while all the others were given two. Like I said, the other factions may ask what I'm complaining about considering they only have one warlord choice, while I at least have two but I was just wondering if there were any current plans to give the Reven or Necropolis an additional Warlord.
