Do you know the prices for the characters?
Might pick up a few of these. Already have the army deal ordered so it will either be another one(dependant on contents) and a battalion for me.

Although I hate having to carry stuff about all day.

The Plastic Arrer Boyz sprue is being dropped from the battalion box (replaced by Spider Riders) as the sprue was not available for purchase outside the battalion box it is to be discontinued. That's not to say there wont be plastic arrer boyz in future :) but at the moment you will have to either buy up a few current battalion boxes or wait till the DS only metal arrer boyz are released.


P.S, you spelt orc wrong ;).

No I didn't (quickly sneaks back and uses the edit button ;) )

Definately getting some of that Orc bits. I need them for starting me Orc and Goblin army (see my website for more details)!

Believe that Skarsnik and Gobbla will be either 12 or 15 pounds. Blisters of heroes/shamans etc. around 6 - 7 pounds.

I am guessing by that statement that you will be in attendance? Will your brother or sister be going?

Hi,

any news Hastings on the Army Deal limited figure?
EDIT 1:As I have around 6000 points of unpainted Orcs & Gobbos this it the only tempting mini for me at the moment (after I will buy Skull Pass and one NG regiment).
EDIT 2: and those goblin characters (on common goblin picture, but looking Night Goblin)

It's going to be a Standard Bearer, like every single other army deal since the Empire Army Deal. I know I'm not who you asked, but that's probably the best answer anyone can give you until far nearer the time...

I did suspect that :evilgrin:. But would it be an Orc, a Goblin or (best option) a Night Goblin? There will be an Orc BSB if you take a look in the Rumour Roundup made out of plastic Warboss Kit, so a (night) goblin would be great. Bestdes I already have two of the old one:).

Speculating ... would this mean that they have good things in store for the Arrer Boyz? As it is now, I don't know of many who use them but I really like the models. Making them skirmishers would be cool ... and would help them sell the blisters. I can dream ...

Not strictly true, OK got a "Bruiser" not a BSB.

But you are correct in as far as the Ltd Mini is indeed an Orc BSB (or so I have been told) ;) .

Really? Didn't he carry a banner at all? Oh well, it's not like Ogres are a real army anyway:D

No, he carried a brace of pistols and was festooned with pistols and a shotgun on his back, pretty obvious that he was initially intended to be a maneater.

I was told some time ago (over 8 months) that the O&G box would NOT have a Ltd Mini but 2 of the Warlord kits (1 to make a Warlord, the other to make a BSB) but it seems now that this was either wrong or has been changed.

The Fanatics (2 NGs holding a 3rd NG Fanatic) will be direct sales, NOT the army box mini.

Didn't the sprue have enough to make a Warlord AND a BSB? I'm sure it did, if the Warlord didn't take a great weapon.

Yeah it does but I am led to beleive the theory begind the 2 box idea was that with 1 box you could make the Mounted Warlord and a Foot Character, then the other box would allow you to make the BSB, I have just been assured though that this idea is NOT going ahead, there WILL be a Ltd Ed mini in the Army Box, and it is "more than likely" an Orc BSB that has been spotted around GW HQ.

Looks like we all were wrong. Instead of an Orc BSB there will be an Orc Shaman (http://www.warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=44176) as the limited Army Deal mini. It is better visible in the rumour roundup - a pic from Moscow GD as I recall. This is not their best mini, so GW made it limited :evilgrin:. Lucky I did not list my second ORC BSB and can paint one as ordinary and the second as Black Orc.
