Elector Count on Griffon question
« on: March 14, 2023, 03:01:48 PM »
I got the griffon from eBay, but noticed I couldn't place my elector count on it. Googling around it looks like he's on a saddle. Should there be a saddle in the set? The back of the box doesn't seem to indicate so: https://es.wallapop.com/item/conde-elector-en-grifo-873670121, https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/warhammer-empire-elector-count-1931415443 ...?

There is no saddle, and there is not supposed to be one.  Any saddles are self-made additions.
It is not enough to have no ideas of your own; you must also be incapable of expressing them.

How can GW release a set where the rider can't ride the animal out of the box??  :icon_confused:

To sit on his griffon astraddle
An Elector can dispense with a saddle;
But if  fighting gets heated
He'll be easier unseated,
And then might be forced to skedaddle.
