I'm after some information about a city fight board that appeared in a White Dwarf around about the 2000 AD mark.

I remember that it had an awesome canal in it with trashed bridges. The guy who made it also did a shed load of Leman Russ conversions that looked - frankly - incredible.

Does anyone have any information about it? Who did it, has anyone got any pictures. Does anyone remember or was it a hallucination.

I threw away my huge WD (about 120 issues) collection about 5 years ago - barely 3 years before I got back into the hobby. Damn I could kick myself.

Sounds a lot like Tsaragrad but that was a bit earlier than 2000 IIRC.

Found it, US WD220 (May 1998) (http://www.gamehobby.net/white_dwarf_magazine/white_dwarf_220.html), shortly before Glazer's Creek.

edit: Gah, tried to dig it up. Of course, there's a bit of a difference between German and US one so German WD of May1998 doesn't have it...one sec...

edit2: By Warwick Kinrade and Ian Pickstock.

Is this the board: http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/imperialarmour/cityfight.htm

These are the only pics I can find of it, although I'm pretty sure a lot of the pics in Imperial Armour Volume 1 come from the same board.

As to throwing away WDs, I kept mine in the attic through my "dark years" and still have issues 98-234 tucked away in boxes up there :)

Yeah, I remember that board. It sounds like it might qualify. There's some photos of it in the 3rd edition IG codex as well IIRC. And maybe the old Codex: Cityfight (not Cities of Death).

Tsagarad, ah the memories. That article is the reason I got into Guard. Unfortunately I can't find that WD at the moment otherwise I would scan some pages so you can check.

Wraith101, scanning the pages is not only a violation of copyright, but also against the Warseer T&C too.

I liked the assault boats the Cadians were using on the water sections

Wasnt there an awesome city fight table with Cadian vs Plague zombies and Typus? That is one of my favourite bat reps. Its in the eye of terror/black crusade issue.
