Title: Latest Recruits
Post by: Borderguy190 on April 21, 2020, 07:29:10 PM
So what have you guys picked up of late for your armies?

 I found a sealed Regiment box from 6th Ed I think, the command models are metal upgrade parts.  Also, a unit of monopose Reiksguard knights, and metal White Wolf knights.  Super happy for the older metal models. I was around way back then, but too into 40K and missed out.

What have y'all found?

I purchased an Averland handgunner, believe it's from a Mordheim warband.  Plus I bought a pair of older metal halberdiers. And a pair of two much older swordsmen with what looks to be like panther shields.

Not THAT recent, but I got a sweet new Gotrek models to carve through the enemy. Comes complete with dead Skaven for the base. I recently dug out a box of stuff I was holding for a buddy, and when I let him know he didn't want it and just sold it to me for cheap. So I need to find the spare bits to fix everything up, but that'll be 2 Demigriffs and some knights freshly added to the Empire.

I've picked up some of the Undead warbands for Underworlds. I haven't picked up anything for my Empire recently, but I do think I'll add the Krakeneater Gargant to my pirates.

Not part of an army project, but I received some animals - living and undead - and a Halfling from Bears Head Minis. Very nice sculpts and very prompt delivery of a kickstart. A rare case where I received the miniatures exactly the month they were originally promised!

As a very happy customer I'll promote a bit:

I concur with the quality and service of Bears Head Miniatures.

Pledged in one kickstarter and picked up these figures last year ...

Well, not WFB, but with the new version of 40k coming out, I picked up a copy of First Strike and No Know fear for kicks. I was not interested in the new 40k as I have sentimental attachment to the older marines, and wasn't crazy about what I saw in the Primaris... but I have to be honest, after assembling and putting a quick layer of paint on them, they are pretty refreshing to work on.

I guess GW was right to go in that direction. But I still argue making bigger models makes the table top smaller. But they did the same thing to Adeptus Titanicus so I guess thats the way things are going now.

Not buying 9th tho!

For Empire my most recent model was the female warrior priest from Avatars of War and Some militia sttyle models with pistols from warmachine.

I did fund the kickstarter from norba for the stank, war wagon, wizard wagon. Will be a few months or so before I get it.
....i never got the GW wizard wagon.

I got the latest Necromunda Book: House of Iron, the Orlock Cards and the miniatures.

I pre-ordered them 15 minutes after they came on-line, two weeks later they hadn't shipped.
I dropped in a mail, to hear the status of my order and they replied: "The item you ordered is out of stock."
Wait, what!? They received an very angry mail of me! And no reply.
Then suddenly, they confirmed shipment and it has arrived a few days ago. And the order was complete. But still no reply from them on my angry mail.

On the other hand, I could lay my hands on a replica Ass cannons from the Chaos Dwarfs! I'm really looking forward to paint that one :-)
Title: Re: Latest Recruits

I donít understand those cannons.

I've got 2 units of them now; one has been built as Wulfhart's hunters and this new set is just going to have a generic scouts/rangers sort of vibe.

You need to get them made! Fantastic models!

Yeah, they are special  :wink:
I don't know how you can come up with such a thing, but somehow it became an iconic thing. Funny and good for a laugh, but iconic none the less. That is why I bought the replica, to put in a small old Chaos Dwarf army.
I once saw an original one for sale for 150 euro on Crisis '19, I'm crazy, but not that crazy. So I'm happy with the this one.
Title: Re: Latest Recruits

Of course. Affordable replica is fine. Sensible even.

How does one come up with something like that - great question!

I think I just came close to completing my collection of old Empire/Mordheim Miniatures with one big purchase. I bought a War Wagon, a full set of Marienburgers, all the Witch Hunters + some other single miniatures - Everything unpainted. I'm already quite curious to find out if I have been scammed one way or another (recasts?). But you need a little bit of excitement in your life after all ...  :icon_wink:

I'll see once the package arrives ... if something arrives.

Sounds pretty sweet. I had the situation a while ago where I got hold of the Reiklander and Middenlander Captains (the ones with foot & mounted variants and multiple weapon choices) but they were clearly recasts when they arrived, Middenlander in particular was pretty poor and has a badly malformed foot.

Fingers crossed yours turn out to be legit!

Post by: Novogord on November 24, 2020, 09:42:46 AM
I recently bought some Mordheim miniatures and they looked very good. They are clearly recasts, but very well done. Some extra moldlines, which still can be removed.

Recently picked up two of the 1980's Citadel C46 drummers.

First is the 1987 'Travelling Players' drummer;

They're essentially the same guy with a few minor tweaks - will probably use them to pad out some command elements of my old state troop regiments or possibly militia players.

Post by: Jmash on December 07, 2020, 12:08:43 PM
I've actually just picked up the Imperial Nobility Blood Bowl team - really quite impressed!

I got them initially to nab some bits for conversions because they're a lot more 'Empirey' than the previous human team, they've got some lovely puff n slash, armour plating and impressive moustachios etc. but I'm actually enjoying them so much I'm very tempted to get another set to keep as a BB team, just for the hell of it!

The only downside, as with everything else from GW nowadays is their scale. Height-wise they are just about passable with the newer ed state troops and characters but they dwarf anything 6th ed and older and even against the new stuff they are pretty chunkily built - they look almost caricature like in places with big over-sized hands and feet.

Throgg is a great model. Always wanted to make a troll army. Hmmm....
Title: Re: Latest Recruits
Post by: Gankom on December 08, 2020, 05:41:28 PM
Throgg is easily one of the first chaos models I looked at and went "Wow, I want that. I'll find a use for it."

I already plan to introduce him as the boss model in a coming D&D game. lets see how they deal with a clever troll.

Just bagged myself both the classic metal swordsmen AND the plug-in swordsmen too, as well as 22 of the classic plastic monopose Altdorf Halberdiers!

Needless to say I'm pretty chuffed  :-P :::cheers:::
Title: Re: Latest Recruits
Post by: GamesPoet on March 12, 2021, 02:39:42 PM
Congrats! :::cheers:::

A good ways back now, I picked up a box of the 5th/6th edition swords/halberds, and a box of the 5th/6th edition crossbows too.   Back in the day the crossbows came in a box of 16!  The plastic sprues are the same ones for the swords and halberds, but they kicked in a blister pack of metal crossbow components as part of the kit.

Those kinds of pick ups are nice, when ya can get them. :icon_biggrin:
Title: Re: Latest Recruits
Post by: Jmash on March 12, 2021, 03:06:35 PM
Those are the guys I'm currently working on with my army.

Got 2 units of the swordsmen (1 is an old unit from my youth that I've re-vamped), and one unit each of the halberds, crossbows and handguns, all with the original metal components.

The only difficult bit is that unit number of 16! and then the slightly later version comes with 16 plus a plastic command frame to make 19... so I have been mixing in some of the classic metal troops to get units up to a nice round 20 or 25 in some cases :biggriin:

I will get my own thread started to document my (slow) progress on things... eventually... :dry:
Title: Re: Latest Recruits
Post by: GamesPoet on March 12, 2021, 04:15:12 PM
I'd love to find a box of the 5th edition hand gunners to pick up.

Also, I have a 6th edition battalion box. This came with 12 knights, 20 infantry (yes, five sprues of 4), the command sprue (general on horse, captain, banner, musician), cannon with 3 crew, and 8 militia.  Gave the militia to a youngster as a starting project for him, and robbed 4 infantry bodies for gosh knows which conversions.  So I'm back to 16 infantry plus 3 command on these, but only 2 bodies for command provided ... so 18 full figures there.

Same situation with the individual box of infantry, which is from 6th edition kit from 2003, 16 infantry and 3 command, but only 2 bodies for the 3 command, so a max of 18 full figures there.

However, I have two boxes of the 6th edition "detachment" kits which came with 8 of the 6th edition hand gunners, and 8 of the 6th edition spearmen.  One box is unopened, but the box that has been opened I used only 4 of the spearmen to add to a 6th edition starter set spear block of 16, plus a Mordheim young blood spearman, and 3 command for a total of 24 spearmen.

That means ... I can convert the other four spearmen into halberds, giving me 4 + 18 + 18 = 40, and that will give me a block of 20 swords and 20 halberds ... cahcoo! :icon_mrgreen: :::cheers:::

By the way, with the eight unopened spearmen, those could also be used as halberds freeing up some of the infantry for adding more swordsmen, and then I'd have a block of 24 of each. Tada! :icon_idea: :icon_cool:
Title: Re: Latest Recruits
Post by: Jmash on March 12, 2021, 04:45:58 PM
I did actually have 2 boxes of the 5th ed handgunners, the first was one of the first ever sets of Warhammer I ever got when I was a youngling, the second was a more recent purchase a few years ago.

Unfortunately the first box full of handgunners went somewhat AWOL in my years away from the hobby, a handful of them have resurfaced but are in a very bad way (splodged full of glue and paint in my childish glee) so they're not really salvageable. I have stripped them down as best I can and I think they'll just come in handy as test troops when I get around to painting my army.

Bought up a few of the newer ed. HE White Lion models that I was missing last week so they're all slowly turning up one by one in the post. Only a few left to get now to complete my 2 units, shame the plastic sets sell for silly money now because I need a couple of those too :dry:

Also got myself another set of the plastic Dwarf Ironbreakers though these guys will be Irondrakes. This is my second set and I'm not sure if I've mentioned them here before, but for some reason I find the plastic dwarfs to be really satisfying kits to put together, this one especially so. They're just so simple yet so elegant and everything fits together really brilliantly - I highly recommend, these guys have really moved on from the Asterix and Obelix dwarfs of yesteryear. I'm also looking forward to painting them because they have a really subtle pattern moulded into their armour plating so wondering if something like the new contrast paints (yet to experiment with) might bring it out a treat?

I left a ton of empire stuff there, like more white wolves, more knights, etc. just don't need them. There's almost a full 2k point army for skaven sitting there for about $100 cad. I keep debating grabbing the isle of blood half for $60 they have on sprue

Super excited with this weekend's haul. I've been after a unit of Khornigors for a while, and ended up getting one for $100 cad for 23 models including command. Pretty stoked. Also picked up a Daemonic steed of slaanesh for a pleasureseeker conversion, only two more to go to have a unit for my soc list, finally a champion of Khorne, just need one of nurgle to have them all.

Built a Captain on a pegasus from a spare Gelt and a gryph knight. Turned out really nice. That was because of the old threads on here mentioning how useful one is.

20 very old style halberdiers for my dow army's paymaster guard
a luthor huss that was stuck in the bag randomly, i only had a newer conversion, so that will do
Ghazak Khan for my dow army, I have all the characters now
5 more pistoliers since mine are too far away to use

Managed to snag myself some 'leftover' sprues from eBay, archers/huntsmen and handgunners/crossbowmen.

Mainly got them for the archers accessories and arms (to kit out and revive the used archers I salvaged from eBay a few months ago!) but also had a couple of spare archer and state troop bodies leftover as well so a nice little bonus to add to a militia or witch hunter retinue or something down the line.

Also picked up a few of the Dominion SE for harvesting bits, the Ven Denst daddy/daughter witch hunters, Nomad Prince, Sepulchral Guard and some SoB Celestians. Quite a mix!

Probably bought a bit more than I ought to have, but never mind :-P

Bought and traded some Free companies, random bitz, 10 metal greatswords and 12 6th handgunners for 2 sets of Skull Pass dwarfes and 16 high elf spearmen + a box of bitz.

After a long and previously fruitless search I finally got myself three dogs, all in the same day!

I landed a Mordheim Witch Hunter Hound on eBay and the Facebook buy/sell/swap group came good for the two Wood Elf Orion Warhounds.

Now I need a kennel... :-P

Nice, I have been trying to get a unit of 10 hounds for my ulric list, might go 3d printed though since the originals are so hard to get

Yeah you're right they are silly hard to get, I honestly feel like I struck lucky with these.

I think the Morheim hound had been poorly listed on eBay so might have avoided a lot of specific searches and the Orion Warhounds never come up unless they're part of the full set with the big man (can I call Orion a man?) himself. A nice guy on FB generously parted with them and let me have them for a good price.

I actually got the Wood Elf Wildcat as well a couple of weeks ago though that is a lot less sought after it seems.

Nice, I have orion's with him, every time i see them separately, they're like $75, not paying that. I still need to track down an old wood elf bear too

Subtract that tab at the bottom, and he makes 28mm no problem.  Cool looking figure too!

The Facebook buy/sell/swap group has come through for me yet again!  :biggriin:

Got myself 9 Forgeworld Nuln Ironsides as good as brand new and a totally untouched box of 3 more Demigryph Knights, all from the same guy!  :::cheers:::
