Well, that does sound better than a floating stone head with the features of David Copperfield... I guess they cannot copyright the latter, even though "it's magic!"

Jeez, 44 years not remembering Sean Connery in Zardoz ... and you bring it all back!

I can't ever forget! Zardoz was a wonderful shared thing in one of my circles of friends for years (and still is, a little).

Of course Charlotte Rampling's Consuella is a wonderful tonic for one's memory... (don't tell my wife  ;D )

ZARDOZ speaks to you.



I have seen the future, and it does not work.

Sheesh. My English Lit teacher was into John Boorman films. I had to write essays about Zardoz when I was at school.

There are times when I think that is all in the past. Then someone makes me remember it.

In fairness, a big floating stone head would fit right in with the Age of Sigmar stuff.

There is (was*) a giant moon that had been hijacked by demons and given to a khorne warlord to use as a floating death fortress.
(I say was because during the malign portents the players voted to use ancient arcana scattered about the realms to construct a magical gun that shot it back in time , to a point where Lizardmen were busy doing something with it, causing all kinds of time warp carnage.)

I found a website a few years ago which sold not-ZARDOZ and some not-Boorman-Excalibur miniatures but can’t for the life of me remember what company it was.

On topic; I like the deepkin types but can’t see them having a massive appeal really... though the Thralls do remind me of Falmer from the Elder Scrolls.

Rogue Miniatures do a Not-Merlin, maybe they have Zardoz too....

Edit: They also have Arthur and Mordred.
I could not find Zardoz, though....

I was thinking earlier that the deepkin are probably the largest departure GW have ever done from the standard Tolkienesque fantasy archetypes.
While I must admit I'm not big into elves, I can't think of any other games with such off the wall elves as AOS now has.
And we still have a couple more elven races to go yet.

I'm not really into the elves themselves, but I dig the look on some of those sea creatures.

I can confirm that I can also recall such a figure, but unfortunately I can't remember who made it either.

It was the war store (http://www.thewarstore.com/cgi-thewarstore/sb/productsearch.cgi?search_field=exterminator)

They used to also do a zed and zardoz masks (http://www.40kforums.com/vb/showthread.php/7465-Zardoz-army-New-miniatures-from-te-war-store!/page2)

There was a panel at the last PAX about the entanglement of metal/rock and roleplaying games, with a good segment dedicated to GW and Warhammer records (that was a thing?!) The youtube video was taken down due to copyright claims (you get that with music) but you can watch it here. I found it rather amusing.

Definitely. I recall an album by Man'O'War on the Warhammer label.

I think the most successful band on the label were probably the nightly Bolt Thrower, who are still very good. Their album Realm of Chaos is a british death metal classic and it’s all 40k.

I also remember a band called Laaz Rokkit.

Nowadays they can’t use the original artwork though because they basically lifted it from existing GW sources.

Unfortunately they disbanded a couple of years ago, after their drummer passed away  :(

back to the underwater stuff: that shipwreck seems to be a glorified piece of aquarium decoration
Cheers,
