What happened to the old Warlord Test of Honour Models?
« on: June 26, 2020, 02:11:33 PM »
Apologies if this is a silly question or something that has been asked before (I tried the search function but it just keeps timing out on me). Does anyone know what happened to Warlord Games' old Test of Honour models once Grey for Now released the second edition? Did they just stop production or have they moved on to somebody else? I assume the plastics are still available in the Pike and Shotte range, but what happened to the nice metal models like the Ninjas, Chobei and the bandits. Has someone else picked them up or do I just need to resign myself to trawling ebay?

Thanks.

I don´t know whether these are the ones you are looking for, but Warlord has some metal Ninja models in their "Warlords of Erehwon" range.

Ninjas:

And here the complete range concerning that theme:

I think Historiker has it correct. The old Test of Honor figures have been rolled into the Erehwon game. The new Test of Honor figures are the ones you see at Footsore.

Unfortunately, there are gaps in the old Test of Honour vs the new Warlords of Erehwon and Test of Honour ranges.  Which is unfortunate.  They had some fantastic onna bugeisha figures with katana and naginata that are apparently now out of print, replaced by just ones with yumi.  Footsore either didn't get the rights to them, or haven't offered them as part of ToH2 or Warring Clans.

Tangential question, does anyone know if BOF Studios ever sold their Ronin Hood line to another manufacturer, or is that line just gone forever?  It's a shame, because they had some cool figures in their line.
