White Wolf knights Upgrade srpue photos!
« on: December 26, 2018, 11:52:05 AM »
Hello and merry christmas to everyone!

I am working on a new project and need some help.

I would like to have some accurate photos of the sprues of the white wolf knights upgrade, as well as the photo of the knights box that contained them.

I' ve done my research but I need to be entirely sure because I saw written on the internet that there have been some changes over the years and some knight boxes or battallions did not contained them or maybe in some boxes there are changes in the sprues.

That's where I come in and kindly ask for your help.

Thank you in advance.

To my knowledge they never changed the knights box set. They did make a metal kit to make knights of the blazing sun. Heres a link to the stuff of legends thats show all the sprues that came in the knightly orders box, http://www.solegends.com/citcat2005us/c2005usp0399-02.htm

My understanding is the Knights of the White Wolf bits were part of the regular knightly orders boxed set.  The set provided a group of unhelmeted heads with various beards, and arms with hammers, which were provided for making the Knights of the White Wolves.

Here is the white wolf sprue (affectionately known as 'hairy head' sprue which is the term you'd wanted to google and maybe find better pics)



and I vaguely recall that this sprue at some point wasn't included in the plastic knight box anymore. Not sure if that coincided with the changing of the box cover art though.

Cringes at the thought of googling "hairy head"  :ph34r:

Be sure to include some additional terms like "warhammer" or whatever. :lol:

I think Nitsabes' photo shows the sprue pretty well, though.

That is a good picture of the sprue!

If they stopped putting it into the knightly box, bummer.  Fairly certain all the boxes I have, had that sprue, yet I am now curious.  However, a good portion of my boxes of unused plastic (perish the thought!) aren't immediately available for review at the moment.

At one point the ebay value of those sprues was such that I bought two boxes of knights second hand and then got the money back by selling the sprues (as I was building vanilla lance knights). I don't think they ever repackaged those knights, so every box should have had those sprues?
