Hey Guys,

Are there older versions of Korhil than the one featured on GW website? I can't find one but I get the feeling there is... help?

Thanks!

Yup. Korhil was first introduced as a Special Character in the 1998 5th edition High Elf book, and a model was produced for him at that time. It's less chunky than the current version, and a lot more dynamic, being posed in a running/lunging position.

EDIT: Here's a link to a small picture of the original sculpt http://www.valkiria.net/uploads/korhil.jpg

Damn... I just won the older, lamer version on eBay by mistake I think.

MeTaL KORHIL White Lions Captain 8599x is the blister pack #.

Yeah, that's the older version I'm afraid.

It's still a decent model though, and is more elegant than the new version, although I do like that sculpt too. A little bit of vintage never did any harm anyway... I still use this model :).

The older model is better in every way.

Yeah, I have to say I prefer the old one too, a lot more dynamic, and is it just me or is there something wrong with face on the newer one?

Yeah, the face is what puts me off the new one. He's a bit of a chubby bugger! If only the head had fitted a bit more with the artwork in the book, which is one of my favourite pieces. I like the overall stance of the new model though.

Ya, personally I prefer the new version so I'm a bit dissapointed. I've asked the seller to allow me to retract my bid but we'll see - otherwise, I'll just have to deal.

Thanks guys.
