My (Long Gone) High Elf Tower
« on: August 12, 2022, 01:08:28 PM »
Prompted by Maciej Barwicki's enquiry into the placement of the post about the High Elf Tower that featured in White Dwarf many a moon ago- I thought I would post up some pictures of a tower put together for me by the manager of the Edinburgh shop in the very early 2000's.
Sadly I sold off all my WHFB stuff (Doh!) but I still have the memories and the beginnings of an ye olde school Orc and Goblin collection soon to followed by a Chaos army- 3rd Ed.

Still, Salad Days and all that.....

Oh, and apologies for the quality of the photo's!

That's quite nostalgic  :-*

A shame it's gone (for you), but it might still grace a table somewhere; who knows?

Yeah, it's a bit of a shame but hey, I sold my armies too at the time :)

I'm sure it is. The guy who bought it payed a pretty penny.

Very cool!

Is it built around two pots, attached base to base?

That's very nice.

As a regular haunter of the Edinburgh GW in the 90's and early 2000's I have many fond memories of the place, the staff and punters.

Early 2000's - was the manager Steph or Martin or A. N. Other?

Two pots?  ???

It's all one in one piece.

Yeah, as far as GW shops go it was very good.
