  1. As far as I know no Bretonnian miniatures were released during 4th edition (1992-1996). Many 3rd edition models, but not all, are found in the 1991 Citadel Catalogue (also called Red Catalogue). There are also many 2nd edition models shown in this catalogue so it is intended not to show them together with 3rd edition models here. I found many models that are not shown or named in any publication (catalogue, White Dwarf). So I can't be completely sure if there are more unlisted models. It would be very much appreciated to get information on that. All 3rd edition models were made from metal, but all horses were made from plastic. Miniatures before 1989 were in smaller scale (25 mm). Bretonnian King and Bretonnian General (1989) Bretonnian Knight Heroes (4 different models, 1990 or 1991) Bretonnian Wizards (1989) The left one was released as an Imperial Wizard, but was used by GW as a Bretonnian wizard in their studio army.) Chevalier d'Honneur and Chevalier de Notre Dame de Bataille (1989) Knight from the King's Retinue and Chevalier Rampant (1989) Bretonnian Knights with Handweapon (10 different models, 1990) Bretonnian Knights with Lance (10 different models, 1990) Bretonnian Foot Knights (21 different models, 1990/91) Mounted Men-At-Arms (8 different models, probably 1991) Mounted Men-At-Arms with Bows (3 different models, probably 1991) Retainers and Men-At-Arms (16 different models, 1990/91) Archers (10 different models, 1990) Crossbowmen (3 different models, 1990/91) Crossbowmen (3 different models, 1990/91 and 1987). The right one was released in the "F4 Men-At-Arms" series in White Dwarf 96 from December 1987. This month there was also the release of the 3rd edition of Warhammer and the model was labeled as Bretonnian later in the "Red Catalogue". Crossbowmen (6 different models, 1988) Brigands (10 different models, 1990/91) Breech Loading Bombard (1990/91) Mortar (1990/91) Organ Gun (4-barreled, 1990) Organ Gun (7-barreled, 1990) Pot-de-Feu (1990) Ballista (1990) Swivel Gun (1990) Mantlet (1990/91)
  2. I am proud to present you one of my greatest treasures: Prince Rodrik's Band of Questing Knights Yes, you can trust your eyes. These are the original miniatures (well at least 6 of 8 ) from the Battle Report "The Folly of Prince Rodrik" from White Dwarf No. 305 (pages 34-47). I bought them directly from GW employee Andrew Hoare, who built and painted 4 of them. He put the knights on eBay in August 2011, but just listed them as "Unique painted and converted Bretonnian foot knights". I spotted and identified them as the original knights from the WD battle report. So I was quite lucky to get them. They are absolutely unique. Before you ask, I already tried to find out what happened to the other two knights. Here's the answer I got from Andy Hoare: Here is the page from White Dwarf 305 that shows them: Here are some more detailed pictures of each knight: Prince Rodrik: Eduard the Enviable: Pietre, Beloved of Yordane: Fabien the Sophist: Roland the Bold: Harold the Filthy:
  3. I made some pictures that show similar miniatures from different editions for comparison. The following picture is a comparison between Knights Errant and their former equivalents. On the left is a Feudal Knight from 1987 (2nd edition) from the "F7 Feudal Cavalry" series. The whole model including the horse is made from metal. The model is in 25 mm scale and even for that the horse looks very small. The second from the left is a Chevalier Rampant from 1989 (3rd edition). He is similar to a Knight Errant as the Chevaliers Rampants were described in the army list as "young knights". The horse has no barding and is bigger than the later horses with barding. The horse is very wide at the saddle and the knight looks somewhat like he is sitting on a "barrel". The horse model was also used for the Empire and for Chaos Knights. In the middle is a Bretonnian Knight from 1990 (also 3rd edition). It is not specified which kind of knight from the army list he should be so I assume he could be used for any kind. The horse model was also used for other races (High Elves for example). The second from the right is a Knight Errant Champion from 1996 (5th edition) and should be well known. This is the last model that was made from metal (the horse is made from plastic of course). This is the first time that Bretonnians had their own horse models. The knight on the right is a Knight Errant Champion from 2004 (6th edition). He was built from the Bretonnian Knights sprue and is completely made from plastic. The horse is bigger than before and has about the same size like the unbarded horse on the left. The following picture is a comparison between Knights of the Realm and their former equivalents. On the left is a Feudal Knight from 1987 (2nd edition) from the "F7 Feudal Cavalry" series. The whole model including the horse is made from metal. The model is in 25 mm scale and even for that the horse looks very small. The second from the left is a Knight from the King's Retinue Box from 1989 (3rd edition). The horse has no barding and is bigger than the later horses with barding. The horse is very wide at the saddle and the knight looks somewhat like he is sitting on a "barrel". The horse model was also used for the Empire and for Chaos Knights. In the middle is a Bretonnian Knight from 1991 (also 3rd edition). It is not specified which kind of knight from the army list he should be so I assume he could be used for any kind. The horse model was also used for other races (High Elves for example). The second from the right is a Knight of the Realm from 1997 (5th edition), a less known metal model. The Knights of the Realm plastic models were more common by far, because they were included in the Warhammer 5th edition boxed set. This is the first time that Bretonnians had their own horse models. The knight on the right is a Knight of the Realm from 2004 (6th edition). He was built from the Bretonnian Knights sprue and is completely made from plastic. The horse is bigger than before and has about the same size like the unbarded horse on the left. The following picture is a comparison between bowmen/archers. On the left is an archer from the "F4 Feudals" series from 1987 (2nd edition). In the "Red Catalogue" he is listed as a Bretonnian model. He is in 25 mm scale. The second from the left is an archer from 1990 (3rd edition). He is already in 28 mm scale. The third bowman from the left is from 1996 (5th edition) and was included in the Warhammer 5th edition boxed set. It is a question of a very common plastic model. The second bowman from the right is from 1997 (5th edition), a less known metal model. The bowman on the right is from 2004 (6th edition). He was built from the Bowmen sprue and is completely made from plastic. The following picture is a comparison between halberdiers. On the left is a Brigand from 1990 or 1991 (3rd edition). It's the only 3rd edition model with a halberd. The one in the middle is from 1997 (5th edition) and is made from metal. The model on the right is from 2004 (6th edition). He was built from the Men-At-Arms sprue and is completely made from plastic. The following picture is a comparison between spearmen. All models are made from metal. On the left is a spearman from the "F4 Feudals" series from 1987 (2nd edition). In the "Red Catalogue" he is listed as a Bretonnian model. He is in 25 mm scale, but doesn't seem to be smaller than the others. The one in the middle is from 1990 (3rd edition). He is already in 28 mm scale. The model on the right is from 1997 (5th edition). In 6th edition there were no new spearmen models released, though the option is still in the army book. The following picture is a comparison between foot knights. The first 4 models are made from metal. On the left is a knight from the "F2 Lords of Battle" series from 1986 (2nd edition). In the "Red Catalogue" he is incomprehensibly listed as an Imperial model, but the helmet crest obviously speaks for itself. He is in 25 mm scale. The second from the left is a knight from the "C26 Feudal Men-At-Arms" series from 1986 (2nd edition). In the "Red Catalogue" he is listed as a Bretonnian model. He is in 25 mm scale. The knight in the middle is from 1990 (3rd edition). He is already in 28 mm scale. The second knight from the right is from 1998 (5th edition) and was originally released for the board game "Warhammer Quest", but was later also released in a blister for WHFB. The model on the right was built by myself from parts of different 6th edition miniatures. He is made mostly from plastic, but the sword arm and the shield are metal. In 6th edition were no new foot knight models released, but the 5th edition models are still available.

  5. Hello there, I am looking for twp Moonclan / Night Goblin heroes from the mid 2000's. Please message me if you have any of these you are willing to part with. Based in the UK. Alasdair
  6. Afternoon gang! Just thought I'd chuck up my latest project, while it isn't technically AoS, it is most certainly the warhams. A group of local boys and myself have opted to get back into the ranked, square based, 6 dice gloriousness ( ) that was 8th. I'm in all honesty using it as an excuse to paint up another army, and skaven got me by the short and curlies prior to...the bad times... So any way, Clan Rictus it is (where young Tretch Craventail comes from). I'll be basing the army mainly around the Death Vermin aka The Black Death, which are the elite of the elite within Rictus' huge swathes of black furs. So they will be represented in the rules by Queek and his bodyguard unit. Also most of the other units in the army will be based on Stormvermin models (there will be no clan rats as of yet), so for instance the Jezzails will be singleman Stormvermin snipers etc, stuff like that. Anyway, enough talk, I'll pop up a few pics! So my first unit I did to try and get the feel for skaven, were some slaves (can't have skaven without slaves). As you can see, there is some Night Goblins in there, so apprently one of Clan Rictus' main exports is enslaved Goblins...thus above This picture is showing the side of the unit and I'm pretty happy with how it encapsulates the sort of swarming look that skaven should have (I hate seeing the slaves all perfectly ranked up like Empire Halberdiers). Points of note in the unit are the little group of Goblins (one even in trouble with one of his erstwhile comrades), a large nasty Wolf-Rat and a Slave driver encouraging the unit forward. Just a close up of the slave driver, just shows how I've done the basing. Opted for a jungle theme as we are currently running some events based around the Lustrian isthmus. Now onto slightly more shoot-bang things: So here we have Skreeskabak Rapidsnout, Clan Skryre permanent hireling to the Black Death. He is the cheeky little nut case that gets to run around with the Brass Orb. Not a very exciting conversion here, but apt..for a dude who ends up being a redirector after he gets mulched. Above we have his partner in crime (still a bit of a WiP) Friikflem the Ordnancer, Clan Skryre permanent hireling to the Black Death, who has survived over 7 Doom Rocket firings, making him one of the most veteran doom-rocketeers within the underempire. Pretty much poorly stole Rob Hawkins great idea for a doom rocket, but it doesn't look anywhere near as nice :P. Above is a very brief mockup of a jezzailateer (again spotted a great image on the internet using a skitarri rifle and storm vermin). He'll be mounted on the normal 25-50, with a decent sized pavise (which will in turn have all leaves and what not attached to it). Not sure if I'll have a chained slave/goblin to the pavise or not yet. So thats it for now, will turf up some fluff and some more character pics soonly. Cheers
  7. Time for another heavy topic..... Now that AoS has been around for a while and is building momentum with some great figure releases and a fairly well established lore and game, I want to reflect on the differences between the two. Who here loved WHFB? Just to put things in context, i switched from WHFB to 40K before the end times was a thing. I had literally never heard of it until the last year. When I went to return to WHFB last year I was rather surprised to see it had already ended and I missed "that whole drama". I personally am loving AoS at the moment but have been reading up on the end times and am blown away by the 5 end times books and by the lore. It looked like an epic series of campaigns. And there is a tremendous amount more detail in those books than a lot of the AoS books so far. It's kind of a shame that the whole thing ended and that a lot of truly excellent characters are gone. I feel that if I had got into WHFB during the exciting end times period, I probably would have been a bit mortified that it ended. Now I'm in a strange position of loving AoS and looking back on something I knew little about, which has a literal wealth of great content to read. Anyone want to share their experiences of this transition? I'm sure lots of you can tell me a lot about what the end times were like as a collector/gamer (lots of new story and models? heartbroken or pleased it ended? etc). I did hear complaints that the 8th edition game was in a real state with its balancing. Any truth to this?
  8. I'm auctioning 6 Bretonnian Grail Knights on ebay, including full command. The metal riders are stripped and the plastic mounts are as new. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/232234359655
