Hi ;

I need help to ID this WE eagle. Anyone already see it ? Apparently it was an bigger version of an released one, but I have no more idea.

Thanks for the help.

All the best ;

Thanks, I was thinking it could be an space marine. I want to know if this is an unreleased model or not.

Laughed so instantaneously I dribbled. Sorry I can't help though.

Isn't that the metal LotR eagle? The one on the left? http://fc01.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2013/147/f/1/lotr___whfb_great_eagles___assembled_by_cezarreo-d66sy7t.jpg

Awwwwww. Do you have an GW link for it ? It's the same model, but I just cannot see if it is the same size as mine or not. Do you know when it was released ?

EDIT : Iverald, supplyer of bad news ^^ !

Isn't that just one of the old metal eagles? I have it, but I bought it used. Why would you want that instead of the new sexy plastic hobbit eagles?

I'm sure it's just the "current" metal eagle, sold as both high elf and wood elf:


I think it's the same model with a different head (cloth wearing :)) used for the wood elf character mount.

Makes you realise how spoiled for great eagles we are. There's the earlier few metal ones from 4th/5th edition, the earlier odd few models, old metal LOTR, new plastic and finecast LOTR, plastic skycutter eagle and so many from other manufacturers, current and oop!

I must admit that I've used warhawks as eagles in the past, too :)

Damned, I "Think" it's him. Unreleased when I purchased it. Maybe some little difference, but haven't the time to spot them.
:( Thanks, guys.

Why do you think it's unreleased in the first place? When did you buy it? It's been in production for quite a few years now.

I purchased it several years ago (5-6 years ?) as unreleased, bigger eagle than the other released one. Maybe he was released later.
