Empire 4th Edition banners in blister pack?
« on: July 07, 2017, 04:00:29 PM »
Does anyone know if there was ever a range of banner blister packs for The Empire released around the 90's? (4th Edition era most likely)

I know there were blisters for Orcs and Goblins, Dark Elves, High Elves and Undead at the very least. Purely from the point of view of a collector I would like to know if any existed for The Empire. I have seen some with state banners on one side and the Griffon and Hammer on the reverse, but I am unsure if someone has DIY'd them.

Any help would be most appreciated.

There were banners for Dwarfs too, but I do not think Empire. Not sure about Dark Elves. Not blisters, but banners to be copied were in a WD and SoC.

Don't think there were Empire ones as well. The 'Battlemaster' board game had quasi-Empire banners as stickers. They were not pretty.

I think the closest thing might be banners printed on the army book pages that could theoretically be copied or scanned & printed, then cut out.

They were also printed on the back of the boxes. But yeah, mainly in white dwarf.

Thanks to all for the assistance. I don't recall seeing the banners on my old boxes. That's worth looking into. I certainly remember cutting them straight out of my army book. The large holes in it will attest to that :(

I won't even ask what particular WD's you mean as that's a needle in a haystack!

Cheers

You never know: it should be WD 146 & 147 (UK).
