The Great Slotta Quiz continues...!

So, for those playing catch-up; we've identified cutesy 18mm slotta-bases from the regiments of renown sets, we've oggled at the multi-coloured round slotta bases found in bloodbowl; but I think this, possibly, is the question thats going to test collective oldhammer credentials to the limit...

ready?

Its a stunner...!

Oooh, my favourite quiz returns!

Advanced Heroquest came with round slottas in that colour green... so I'm thinking that era...

Re: The Great Slotta Quiz continues...!

Is the '84' misleading? I presume same mold was used later? What does it look like on bottom? Does it have a parallel track as well as a diagonal?

Re: The Great Slotta Quiz continues...!

Yeah, the '84 mould was used until at least the early-mid '90s, so I don't know how relevant it is here.

Didn't Gobbos Banquet come with coloured 20mm square bases? Yellow, Green, Blue and red I think? Along with a handful of spiders and things from Warhammer Quest. Alas I don't have a copy to check.

Certainly my guess would be that it's from one of the small intro games GW did that have all but vanished.

Aha, found a pic online: http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lost ... Citadel%29 That's only a back box shot however so probably pre-release, I'm sure I remember the colours being brighter (the text on that page seems to say the same) the bases/minis in that shot look quite drab green.

Oooh, good call! Is it right though? Gobbos banquet looks like it had horizontal slots not diagonal?
