If anyone is ordering from Omni, I need to get in on a single mini (OMF0016, 38mm OGRE W/ TWO WEAPONS, Price: $4.50) - I missed it when I ordered from them a year or so ago and it's the one piece they own that I miss and I can't justify postage for a single model from the US.

Also, take note - there are several fantasy range Metal Magic demons hiding in their Sci-Fi category.

Many thanks to you all, and you're welcome JJ, you brought the idea in the first place ;)

All updated until here.

Remember seeing their ads in Military Modelling years back.
They look really nice figures, Legion Of The Damned are very tempting.
How are they sizewise? Proper 25mm?

Legion of the damned are tiny, def closer to old 25mm.

Anyone else read this?

I'm a bit over Kickstarter/crowd funding, but I'm pretty excited to see a chance of anything Tom Meier being back in production.

That, and I wouldn't mind a copy of Chaos Wars. Let's hope it works, unlike RAFM's attempt with Universal Soldier last year :(

Re: Old miniatures rereleased

Made me think - imagine if GW did something like that. "We're hoping to re-release all the original RoR sets from the early 80's as the first wave of a re-release of every model for which we still have usable molds/masters". And then I remembered that they aren't specifically a miniature manufacturer but a modern corp. and wouldn't want to dilute their brands and licenses thing.

Part of me prefers old lines to be OOP. The search for a particular mini for less than a pint of beer, or happening across that 'perfect stranger' that you've never seen before, being some of the fun. Part of me wants just a few more models without the hassle of tracking them down :roll:

Thing is, it just wouldn't be financially worth their time investment to do it, it was the main reason they stopped the archive service; no one was buying the old junk.

For all it's bluster, shouting and blogging, Oldhammer is a tiny minority of GW gaming. The vast majority wants new and shiny toys, not old and (subjectively) crap ones.

Yeah, that's kind of what I was getting at. That and finding all those minis on their website would be a nightmare of sluggish page loading and javascripted menus

We may be in the minority, but WE SHALL BE HEARD :o

Having said that, I would *love* it, just because it'd make AlexTwattaway financially (as well as morally) bankrupt.
