Ever since hearing, and reading about Frostgrave I had high hopes to restart Mordheim at the local GW club (as Frostgrave would obviously not be allowed, being a club inside a GW shop). There were plans to do so, and people started collecting stuff to build buildings with. To keep things simple for me, I made a few posts here and there, asking for ruined LotR scenery, and more recently, Mines of Moria stuff. Sofar, I managed to collect the following bits by trading or even paying a little bit of money from gamers who still had some in their bits boxes.
I've also found 2 sets of Mines of Moria columns, which I still need to pay for later today (not everyone is into trading, still can't complain as it is a tenner for the lot including shipping), and included in that is another standing statue....hurrah!
I've also started work on my own loot...ehm, treasure counters. A quick rummage in the bits box revealed a suitable chest, and I know there are more, I just could not find them (yet), so based it on a 25mm base. Also, I grabbed one of the jewels from the blister I bought yesterday, based it on a 20mm base and added a short bit of thin soldering wire to it so it is now a medallion, a locket or a jewel, not sure yet how I will paint it.
I've already prepped some more 20mm bases with a coating of sand, and next up is a collection of coins (yes, copied straight from Northstars release, no need to reinvent the wheel all the time). It means that, after having bought it 2 years ago at Crisis, I can finally get out my punch die and get cracking on a bit of suitable plasticcard. It's not rocket science, so it should be pretty easy to put together.
I watched a bit on Facebook today that showed some of video and pics of the GZG stand at a show this weekend in the UK. In it was a new drone, 1 with wings and 1 with fans, that peaked my interest. After some searching it turned out to be a new(er) release, namely V15-108 and -109, Hornet Drones, 2 per pack for 3 quid. Instantly reminded me of the Al'Yon'Kor'Vesa drone from the Tau which I love.
While I was at it, I sent Jon a question about the fan units (and the Tri-Tracks) he has released with his Bulldog vehicle. I quite like those and I think they are suitable for converting 20mm tanks and soft skins. To my amazement I had a reply from Jon within 10 minutes!
Hello Johan,Well, that would be awfully nice. I have had visions (have I been drinking again?) of a lowly PDF force in BTR-152's with grav or repulsor units for some time, so these would be perfect. To be 100% sure, I've asked for measurements of the ducted fans so I can be sure that they will fit. After that I'll see if there is any money :) And I'm pretty sure I have some BTR-152's in my stash.
I'm not sure if I will actually be listing them as stock items….. but I can certainly do some for you as a special order, if you let me know how many sets you would be looking for? Each set would consist of 4 fans (or 4 tri-track units) plus a pair of the axles to support them.
This week will be a bit more busy so I doubt you'll see more of me till friday, but you never know :)
