In my last post, I listed the miniatures that I want the most. This time, I’m listing the ones I “need” the most to fill gaps in the collection, and that I will indeed eventually get my hands on (save #1).
The list of stuff that I really really need and actually aim to get (except for Osrim)
#10. BDD1 Treasure Chest
Not much to say – it’s a chest, and apart from the cleric it’s the only part I miss from the BDD1 set. No doubt harder to come by than the cleric himself.
#9. Smiorgan Baldhead
This Eternal Champions chap have been on my radar for a long time. He’s not part of a systematic collection, but intended for a warband project. I really like it, it’s not unattainable and I would put it to good use straight away. That’s the reason it’s on this list and not the other one.
#8. Grograt Crunchskull
Blood Bowl troll star player sculpted by Bob Olley. Another one I used to own but stupidly sold off in a fit of downsizing. For my Dungeon Bowl teams.
Ogre star player, also by Olley. Also had this once upon a time. Yeah, you know the story by now. Dumb…
#6. Bugman’s champion
This peglegged little freak is apparently quite rare and often goes for stupid money ™ on eBay. I would very much like one, to complete my RR1.
#5. Owd Rodger (aka Thug with dagger #2) and/or Nob
For my Felix & Gotrek goes 3rd edition minis project. He’d be part of the sewer jack team our heroes join. Great figs, really!
#4. Harboth’s Musician
The only model missing from the old pre-slotta Harboth’s. If you have one, please have a heart and sell him to me. The rest of the regiment are based and primed just waiting for this chap to join before painting.
#3. Mayor Leofwine
The good Mayor from the Orc’s Drift scenario isn’t even scenario specific but is still rare as hen’s teeth. From the very first line of slotta figs, I assume many have succumbed to rot what with the metal quality being rather dodgy and all.
#2. Guthrum Mane (aka Giant Hilltroll)
Big nasty troll, also from Orc’s Drift – but not scenario specific. Doesn’t seem to be very rare, but I always miss out while everybody around me seem to get these on bargains. Not fair!
#1. Osrim Chardz, again…
Yeah, he made #1 on this list too. Bastard.
I do have some honorable mentions for this list too, that didn’t quite make it because they’re either too dull for a list or I couldn’t decide on what to drop in their place.
* Original Bugman’s musician – I can view my regiment as complete without this chap and have actually passed on buying one, but if I would get one I would feel quite warm and fuzzy inside knowing the gang is one step closer to completion.
* Mudat’s half orc maniacs command – I only have the standard bearer (and lots of troopers), I really want these but not enough to dedicate three slots on the list for them.
* The BDD1 cleric – Would definitely get one if I came across it, but for some reason I don’t really feel like I care much. The chest listed above seems more important. Odd…
* Grom’s original musician (pre-slotta) and champion (pre-slotta RR but slotta model, weird huh?) – These would actually be really, really nice. They should’ve been on the list, but I couldn’t decide on what NOT to put on the list if they went on it.
