Re: eBay Bargains, Deals, etc.

Is this genuine?

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Warhammer-Fantasy-Metal-UNRELEASED-ADVANCED-HEROQUEST-WIZARD-1988-A-352/292294047407?hash=item440e1536af:g:-O4AAOSwRqxZ4sX-

The mould lines look really pronounced and there doesn't look like much detail. I thought at first it was a metal casting of the plastic, but the head is different and the staff ornaments subtler than on the plastic one. Also the tab looks right. Since I have a metal dwarf and elf I'd quite like to pick up the wizard to go with them...


EDIT: Heh, I should do some basic research first! http://www.sodemons.com/rhrare/advhq/index.htm

Yeah, I think they were made so they could get the box art done before the plastics were actually produced.

OK. So the metal prototypes do exist, and I've never seen one in hand, but that looks really shiny and has dodgy looking moulding lines.

Same sellers Slambo smells dodgy to me as well.

Nah, probably legit, Slambo was available until very recently in metal in a "Collectors' Chaos Warriors" 4 pack from GW. Mine looks identical and I got it from Head Office.

Re: eBay Bargains, Deals, etc.

Have bought from him in past and a good seller but I do feel I've been buying very good recasts. I say this as when I compare the mold lines to others I know are original his always come with extra ! plus no matter what I've bought they always come in that shinny new look metal ! But saying all that I just want the models so its never bothered me.

Re: eBay Bargains, Deals, etc.

Cheers guys. I knew the metals did exist (as I already have two of them), just wasn't sure if this was actually one of them. Since it is, but may well be a recast, I may make him an offer. Ta.

Re: eBay Bargains, Deals, etc.

I wouldn't particularly call this a bargain, but if, you really want one and your pockets are deep enough?

However, what I'm tempted by is

Because I like the silly idea! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Damn, they're genius, if I hadn't just bought a chaos cultist army I'd have bought them in a heartbeat! They'd go great with my halfling land ship and steam tanks.
