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 donīt 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.

Thanks very much for the help. I'll take a look (must be the only part of their website I didn't check.

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.

I think this is the original group you mean:

But 3 were still armed with yumi. And yes, the 3 with angina ya and the one with Katana were very nice. Where are they? Personally, Iím also bothered by the fact that I canít buy some of the wonderful Footsore figures without paying a lot for unwanted ToH accoutrements. Oh well.

Footsore's scale is all over the place.  Their ashigaru are a full head taller than Perry and Warlord, taller than even old Clan War figs, but meanwhile their Ronin Swordmaster is so small he looks like a woman or a teenager and comes in smaller than the Bad Squiddo onna bugeisha.


But yeah, that's the Test of Honor figs.  They even offered them in 3 pack blisters of the naginata and bows by themselves. Wish I'd picked some up.

Thanks to Appleís spell checker, that made no sense. The 3 have naginatas and I canít comment on their cardiac conditions.

Looks like some more onna-bugeisha with naginatas are becoming available from Warlord

Beats me why 3 attachments showed up. And there is no way to edit this.

There is, I'm afraid. Click the Modify button, then below the editor window, uncheck those attachments you wish to remove. FTFY already, this time. 😉
