I'm contemplating as my 2nd Fantasy army the Vampire Counts (note not End Times) and fancy a Vampire Lord on foot.

I remember from my youth a model in White Dwarf I absolutely adored as a Vampire but it's out of production. He was in plate armour and had a sword in his right arm (raised to his shoulder, point forward?) And a shield. Could someone provide a picture of said model or link me to a source I can buy it or a sell me the damn thing?

Charity is approved and begging is not beyond me.

Thanks.

That's the guy! Legend! I love that model. I'll have to find out the product number or something to buy him?

He's a 6th edition Blood Dragon (there was a mounted version too), by Alex Hedstrom/Aly Morrison.

eBay (none there at the moment) or the trading forum are probably the most likely ways to get hold of him nowadays.

6th edition, that is about 10 years (21 at point of sale) but I thought I was younger than that!

Thanks a bunch though, it'll help me track it down.

Actually it's the third model from the left. He's actually what I meant I just remembered it wrong!

I want boh Vampires to be fair. I guess I'll just scour the eBay vendors until now and the real End Times.

Jep, that came to my mind too when i read your task, but hesitated to write down because you confirmed the other model to be it. I believe its a 5th edition model and i have been looking for it on ebay too. Prepare to pay a little more then for your ordinary metal character for that one.

May the best geek win the ebay battle in that case.

Or me if I'm not the best ;)

If you are from Idaho i won´t be any competition for you or vice versa, presuming that you have an equivalent high shipping fee from europe as i have from the US^^

There is a ready painted version on eBay along with Isabella. I personally want an unpainted version but what can you do eh?
