That BOYL figure is fantastic. Too bad it's not more widely available.

Hell will freeze over first.  Limited edition, artificial scarcity and FOMO marketing gimmicks fill me with blinding hatred.  Might as well be GW.

Not the same thing.
This is a 'show special' for those who attend BOYL and, as BOYL is not run for profit, it is a more of a 'thank you' for all those who attend and contribute in some way.
That is my take on it anyway...

Yes and, as a freebie, selling on is frowned upon. Not in the Oldhammer spirit and all that.

What the other guys have said is correct.  BOYL is a free event, hosted by Foundry. The figure is a gift to the attendees. The sculpt is funded by donations from a small group of gamers who ask for no recognition. It is given to the wider community who take the effort to attend the event. It is very kindly cast up for free by Foundry.

It is not a limited edition marketing gimmick in the slightest.

Cheers! I never got to meet you but I saw the lovely Bob olley unit you did in the cabinet!! Canít  wait to see how you paint up your pirate captain!

Glad you like those! We'll have to wear name tags next year ;)
