Last month, a lot of people in the “oldhammer blogoshpere” (jeez) listed their top ten wants. Found it quite entertaining to leaf through but never got around to make my own list. Until now. This is me, getting on the band wagon a few weeks late. Enjoy! I’ve split my list into two, actually. One for stuff that I obsess about from a collectionitis perspective, and one for stuff that I just think is cool.

The list of Cool Stuff that I really really want

#10. Heinrich Kemmler, the original Lichemaster
A classic villain from a classic scenario. A fun fig, but too damn expensive to justify buying.

#9. Citadel Giant Spider
Standard creepy crawly, but a giant spider never goes out of style. Want one!

#8. Skrag the Slaughterer
Fantastic ogre by Jes Goodwin. The ultimate second in comand for an evil nemesis or boss ogre for an ogre warband.

#7. Ambull
Science Fantasy wierdness that would work just as well as a demonic fantasy monster as a science fiction dito.

#6. Blood Bowl Troll #2
Bob Olley sculpted a few trolls for 2nd edition Blood Bowl that weren’t widely circulated. This is one of them, the other I already have (Troll #3). It’s not super duper rare, but doesn’t appear often.

#5. Citadel Cockatrice
This is another of those classic dungeon critters you just need to have if you plan any serious random encounter gaming. Also, it’s appropriately sized. Nowadays a cockatrice is apparently a huge behemoth. As usual, the 80s win over the nowies.

#4. Dragon Ogre
What can be said… it’s big, mean looking and bloody awesome!

#3. Snotling Pumpwagon
I used to own one. Now I don’t. Stupid!

#2. Marauder Giant
The quintessential giant, if you (like me) were introduced to WHFB in the early 90s. Prior to that I had only played and collected Blood Bowl and never even had much of a look at other GW stuff apart from a stray blister of dwarfs and some Judge Dredd stuff. This is something I really would want to get my mitts on!

#1. Osrim Chardz
So rare a google image search won’t even give you any pics of him painted, thus the only bare metal image in this list. Not that great a fig, but getting one would crown my Orc’s Drift collection. This is my grail mini, no question about it.

That’s it for the really nice stuff that I would rather like to have. Next, I’ll post the “gottacatchemall” list of 10 most coveted chunks o’ lead.

  1. My Marauder Giant is lying in bits waiting for the day I get round to my extremely tempting goblin horde – could do with a couple of pump wagons for it too ;)

    Nearly bought that Cockatrice a few times on a whim – nice mini

    Not going to mention Mr Chardz…

  2. The giant is a really great model, bur for some reason I disliked it a lot when it was in print. Weird that.

    Thanks for loaning me a few pics btw. =)

  3. I have that BB troll. It is possible (unlikely, but possible) that I have a second one. If I do then I will get in touch.

    That model and one other BB troll (a kind of restricted pose, almost as if he is shoulder charging or carrying the ball close to one side. Possibly Troll#3?) didnt show up in the Red catalogue IIRC, so I was pleased to see them in a shop and buy them sometime (GW Glasgow 1990 I am pretty sure).

    I am certain that I have a duplicate of the shoulder charging guy if you dont already have it.

    • Do you mean the troll in this post: http://ministuff.godzilla.se/?p=239

      If so, that is indeed troll #3 and one of the rarer BB models. I do have it (as you could see in above post) – it was my most coveted BB model for years and it pleased me to no end that I bought the blurrily photographed “warhammer ogre” for a measly fiver on eBay. =)

      If you sell me a troll #2 I’d be very happy and vow to paint it up within a week’s time of reception! =) You’re correct in that neither of them were in the catalogues.

    • Sorry to barge in like this, but if anyone has a spare of the “shoulder charging” Blood Bowl Troll (Troll #3), I’d be very interested – that’s the one I am missing. I have Blood Bowl Minis to trade and would appreciate a message. E-mail is included. Thanks!

  4. I have a marauder giant if you would like to trade. Its bare metal and unassembled.

    Shoot me a mail!
