Some stores carry the Kislev minis. Most GW ones do, and it's hit/miss with indy stores.

New in 2003 were:

Horse archers
Gryphon legion
winged lancers
boyars
kossars
Tzar on bear(forget his name)

The tzarina is old.

hmm, I am not sure for the horse archer and the winged lancers. I think they are old minis, but I have the impression that there is new legs for the horse archer. can someone confirm that ?

winged lancers and horse archers were old minis(like katrina). kossars on foot, boyar and tzar are new minis, just like the gryphon legion(well, the gryphons look more like a re-sculpt of the orginal,but it's "new" by definition)

Sorry for the mis information. I would GUESS horse archers are new, as i just got some and they look more dynamic than models of old.

Every gamestore i've been to has Kislev in the discount bin.

Was Kislev discontinued?

Warsmith-just checked,and i guess i was the one wrong-it seems that at least some of the archers were indeed new sculpts.:oops:
snurl-kislev wasn't discontinued, but since thay are fielded as allied contingent rather then part of the main Empire book, they seem to be omiited(and frankly for a reason-they aren't all that great when compared to knights and pistoliers)

ok. found the bloody page on solelegends. now i'm 100% positive-not a single part of the horse archers was re-sculpted. the current legs are exactly the same as the old ones(in fact, it seems that "horse archer legs 1" legs were phased out ,like horse archer body 3 and horse archer with sword body 1)
sorry for all the trouble i'v caused:)

I just saw the link and I have the impression that the legs are new (look on the us onlinestore) , there are a bow and a sword on the side of the legs.
Otherwise, do you know were I can find a website, like solegends, but with all the releases of 1998,1999,2000 ?

ok..so, now's the question-WHY in the hell does UK GW show the old legs??

The UK GW site is very different than the US one. Typically it's better, more complete, with more models(specifically in the classic range), but they might just have something off.

So you confirm that there is new legs for the horse archer ?

those shown of GW US site are most definetly new, as neither the solelegend or GW UK one's have swords modelled.
