Both of my last orders from the UK Online Store (Both Inquisitor models) have come with a Warhammer Fantasy blister pack thrown in, first i had a Marco Columbo model, then a blister of 3 Dwarf Slayers! :wtf:

Now if this had happened once i would have put it down to chance, but twice in a row? They're not trying to get rid of hard to sell models are they?

Anybody else had this happen?

If you check their site it is a promotion for this month. A random blister with every order.

That's pretty lucky if you got Marco Columbo free, he's OOP nowadays.

That is pretty good, when i first heard of it i thought mmm probably get a blister of spore mines or something equally as usefull, but if its stuff like that then its good.

I'll swap you Marco Columbo for Gimli sitting on a dead Uruk Hai.

:p

I'm so tempted to order something just to see what i get free ... does anyone know if this applies to Warhammer World orders too?

If you're after Marco Columbo then contact http://www.gatesheadgaming.co.uk/

I was just in their shop on Wednesday afternoon (picked up a couple of blisters of BFG Chaos Infidels for 4 each... :)) and he had an absolute pile of them. Seriously, drop him an email and tell him I sent you (High Spen wargaming club). They're going for peanuts.

Thanks! I'm not desperate for it, but the Gimli isn't worth much except to hardcore LOTR fans.

There's a thread about the quiz in Fantasy General.

Games Day Black Orc! :o That was going for loads on eBay at one point.

And you got Vlad. No fair!

why, thats questionably erotic!

The old black orc goes for a bundle on ebay, as have i seen gimli go for to hardcore collectors, and the new vlad is rather nice as well...

Friend of mine (noctournal) got an archaon on foot, so im hoping that when my freebies come through its something nice...
