Lost Minis Wiki question, extra pieces in old set

Recommended Posts

So, as I mentioned, I was given a pristine old Grenadier set of Champions supervillains for Christmas.

 

On the cover is a little splash logo: “FREE Starter Scenario Game Aid and Figure Accessories”

 

The “Starter Scenario Game Aid” is just a folded piece of paper with a hex map on one side and some suggestions on the other.

 

But the “Figure Accessories” are two actual, substantial molded pieces: a pair of rockets and what I think is a hover-scooter.

 

You can see them in the middle row on the far right, between two figures, here:

These two pieces are not pictured on the box art, nor are they listed in the set description.

 

They definitely go with the set. The box was sealed when I received it.

 

They are not mentioned nor shown on the Lost Minis Wiki page of the set:

Question: Should I document and upload pictures of these accessories to the wiki?

 I would...

 

I've seen a couple of these sets for sale before, but never with the  "game aid and accessories"  included. Definitely worth doing if you feel like taking the time to do so.

Most of the time, when somebody finds a factory-sealed set they don't open it to confirm contents, so there are probably a fair number of sets floating around whose owners have no idea what the "game aid and accessories" are. Anyone with an open set most likely lost them long ago.

I know for a fact that two of the action art boxes have unlisted parts not shown. If I had the ability I would update them.

After all, have you ever seen this information before opening the box and finding the Things? Information is so often lost because it wasn't "important". Random hover-scooter minis may have been lost to time and trash cans solely because nobody knew what they were. You can fix that.

The additional items could have been added as either part of a limited time promotional campaign or as part of the requirements for sale through a national chain with enough buying power to require something extra in any sets sold through them.

As to a box being "sealed", if it's in clear plastic shrink wrap that may or may not be "factory original".  A lot of retailers would as a matter of policy run boxes through a shrink wrap machine even if the boxes were factory tape sealed as a loss prevention measure and to indicate if an item has been tampered with.

I'd definitely document the whole thing and post where appropriate.

      Here we are in 2015, the 40th Anniversary of Chaosium as a game company. In a few months Glorantha, Greg Stafford's fantasy game world, celebrates its Golden 50th anniversary. We feel the time is right to bring the celebrated classic second edition of RuneQuest back into print. Gaming is going through a bit of an Old School renaissance as of late, and we want RuneQuest to be a part of it. We hope you’ll join in on the fun!
       
      REWARDS:
      The RuneQuest Hardcover Book - is 144 pages. It will have sewn binding. It contains all the 2nd edition text, but with all the errata incorporated where it belongs. Additional material has been added to the appendices at the end. If you want more than one copy of the book, add another $30 for each additional book to the level you are backing.
       
      The RuneQuest Leatherette Hardcover Book - is 144 pages. It is in red leatherette with gold foil stamps on the front and spine. It has a color dust jacket. If you want more than one copy of the book, add another $50 for each additional book to the level you are backing.
       
      The Player Handouts - are 20 pages of reference material for the players to use during character creation and ongoing play.
       
      The GM Screen - is two 11 inch x 17 inch (very close to A3 paper size) color cardstock panels with handy charts and tables from the Rulebook on the GM side, and classic Luise Perrene art on the Player Side.
       
      The Old School RQ Source Pack - consists of four of the earliest RQ1/RQ2 supplements published: Militia & Mercenaries, Scorpionmen & Broos, Trolls & Trollkin and the Balastor's Barracks scenario. Each is about 16 pages in length with a color cardstock cover. If you want more than one copy of this Source Pack, add another $50 for each additional Source Pack to the level you are backing.
       

       
      The Runequest Playtest Manuscript book - is a 250+ page hardcover book created from high resolution scans of the original playtest manuscript. This manuscript is the only known set of playtest notes in existence which were lovingly kept in a binder for the last 40 years. This playtest material was used to create the first edition of RuneQuest. It includes newly written introductory essays by Steve Perrin and Greg Stafford. Here's a few pictures of the original:
       

       
      The 2 volume "Unpublished Scenarios and Source Material" set - is two hardcover books with hundreds of pages of unpublished RuneQuest material by Greg Stafford and other early authors. It includes a fair bit of Sorcery rules for the West, the Howling Tower scenario set in the Upland Marsh, as well as a wide range of other material, esoteric and otherwise. We will describe it in more detail in the comments section and the FAQ. This reward is only available as part of this Kickstarter.
       
       
       
       
       
       
      Into old school RPGs, love Glorantha/Runequest ?
       
      then this one is a great choice

      Hi guys,
       
      two more figures that I just finished, really simple paint jobs with limited color palettes and being animals and all. They are both sculpted by Dennis Mize back in the day and came from his Children of the Night series.
       
      I did the Hunting Cat in pure black with some highlights and for the Therapsid, I kind of wanted him pale, and unhealthy looking. He reminds me a little bit of a not-so naked mole rat:
       

       
      Pretty simple and straight-forward figures, didn't take too long to paint. The hunting cat really only took a few hours, and the Therapsid a little bit more because he was three colors.  Anyway, hope you enjoy these little specimens of wildlife!

      And my last figure from this week, a giant rat,  sculpted way long ago by the immortal Julie Guthrie. I should have taken a comparison shot for this one, as he's really small, but you can probably guess because his base is one of those itty bitty bases I think used for 15 mm figures, not sure where I scored them from. They might have come with the familiars in some Stonehaven Kickstarter. 
       
      Being that I couldn't take the Friday after July 4th off, because the rest of my department already had dibs, I ended up taking Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, as well as today and I've had some pretty productive painting mornings, so got lots done and this is another one of those figures:
       
      He's slightly out of focus but he's really, really small.. One one of the angles you can see a little piece of flash I couldn't get rid of.
       
      Anyway, enjoy once again! More figures in a few days!

      And another figure from my pretty productive weekend, a were-rat, I think also sculpted by Dennis Mize, though not too sure, this might have been some of the Citadel Import figures that he redesigned.  Anyhow, once again a very simple figure, a naked were-rat running around with a sword, pretty simple and straight forward!
       
      I always seem to end up painting rats grey, maybe in the future, I'll go brown or white....

      Yay, finished in time to enter 2013 Dragon challenge with 6 hours to spare....
       
      He is 2 lbs 2.5 ounces of lead, so pretty straining on the wrists. The WIP is here : https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/52564-teronus-grenadier-dragon-wip/
      I will likely put him on a display base later.
