I heard it was because the original creator managed to hold on to the copyright (somehow!) and GW were reluctant to use them.

Jeez, talk about dog in a manger. I wonder if they have enjoyed the untold millions of not doing anything with the character for the last 30 years!

It's a shame it disappeared, always wanted to see more. Realms of chaos would have been interesting with him in. Still I'm happy enough as I've the chaos brothers to paint( plus all three mounted versions)

#21 - Sandra Prangle (Citadel c1986 The Tragedy of McDeath)

Sandra is squire to Sir John Quicksure, a knight errant opposing McDeath. Her horse died on the way to the battle and she misses him badly. The original heraldry for Quicksure was a yellow (or maybe gold) griffon against a white or silver background, but I thought it looked too wishy-washy, so I changed it to a dark blue griffon against yellow background (similar to the Percy arms).

Poor grasp of the rules of heraldry, that chap. Never put a metal tincture on another metal tincture - only metal on colour or vice versa.

The changed one looks great, though. Thorougly swell leather tones, too.

Number 22 Citadel Dwarf crossbow

Citadel solid based dwarf crossbow, Perry sculpt, again from early 80s I think.
These were when Dwarves were at their best in my opinion

Gentlemen, this might well be the thread to pull me out of hiding. Oldschool fantasy is where it's at, after all - isn't it? :) Please save me a spot. :D

Terribly fine work so far. In particular the Goodwin elves, Cubs' beautiful McDeath figs and Argonor's MM model. Thanks guys!

So Steve is this how it is going to be? First you buy up all my old school godies and then you start an old school painting party?

I'll have to see if I can't find an onother untapped old-school ore int ye olde lead mountain.

Lots of old Warhammeresque goodness being showcased, here!

I hope to get stuck in painting some more old lead after this weekend - we have the annual Egeskov Market, and it takes up most of our otherwise free time (I have volunteered for collecting parking fares tomorrow afternoon, so had to browse through the market stalls today)
Ask at the LAF, and answer shall thy be given!

Sandra Prangle, what a wonderful character  :-* And that is great work on that shield, Cubs.

This club is going quickly, and rather well, no?

The next time some wanker declares that LAF is home to a lot of unreconstructed old fart ‘historical’ wargamers, I will have to point out that the Napoleonic (AKA Big Battalions / horse and musket) painting club took literally A YEAR to generate 100 figures. Whereas this old school fantasy club looks like it will be comfortably done and dusted inside a month.

Thereby proving that LAF is actually the broad church it’s always been (and home to a lot of unreconstructed old fart ‘fantasy’ wargamers  :D)

Funny what different perspectives we have, Richard. Most of the criticism of LAF I have read has kind of been the opposite of that. That is to say that we are a bunch of frivolous skirmish lightweights who don't take things seriously enough, and are obsessed with pretty-pretty pictures and eye candy over solid wargaming substance.  lol

You know what they say, ask three wargamers a question and you'll get five different opinions!

That's fine and all, but can they screw in a replacement lightbulb?
