Prize winning blog

It's like an award winning blog, only less deserving...!

I was lucky enough to win the giveaway in Erny's Orctober, and the boyz arrived in the mail on Friday. And even lucker that Erny threw in a champion to keep them in line, which just happened to be the one miniature I was after from that page of the 1988 Citadel catalogue! Not that I have all of them by any means - only 4 in fact - but I'm attempting to keep my "wants" list as small as possible, for the sake of my sanity and marriage.

Hopefully I'll find some time over the Christmas period to get paint on at least some of them.

Thank you Erny!


  1. My pleasure.

    Note it isn't the actual champion figure from the unit in the third ed rule book, check the number of teeth. Not sure if you were after that particular champion or not but he is very similar.

    1. I hadn't noticed the difference, but I was after either of the ones with helms (of the 3 in the catalogue I don't like the one with the pointy hair). Of those two I prefer the one you sent me - something to do with his expression but I'm struggling to put my finger on exactly what.

      Either way, I'm a happy chap!


    2. Yeah he is awesome seams quite rare on eBay these days but used to come up often. The chap with the hair is quite nice in the lead too.

      I hadn't noticed that my collection was actually missing the toothy one, with all the helmeted ones I just assumed I had both types. Then I came to paint the unit up and noticed they were all the same, took me forever to find one but I have all three now.
