Title: what happened to the Fomorians?
Post by: Dunnadd on 20 January 2015, 06:54:09 PM
I remember Leon or someone posting photos of Fomorians / DefinitelyNotFimir greens a long time back. A year? Years? Not sure. Any estimate on when they might get cast?

this is an outrage etc. Not really - they're ok, but not as good as i remembered, and armoured werewolves/gnolls are more of a priority for me anyway. Oh well.

thanks for the link

They've been master moulded but we didn't get any further with them yet.  We are doing some work on the Fantasy at the moment, so hopefully they'll be arriving at some point this year.

Like.   :D

'Balori' i believe.  Can't wait to get my hands on some of these.

glad to hear it Leon - which fantasy? or is it secret? Would it be werewolves maybe?

Balori is a good name - sounds good and difficult for certain companies which shall go un-amed to take legal action over. They're like the Candy Man of miniatures companies. You say their name three times and their lawyers appear behind you to sue you.

To go with these new rules, we are giving our Fantasy ranges a complete overhaul to provide as much variety as possible.  The new ranges will feature larger packs of 25 assorted infantry, 12 assorted cavalry or 3 guns with crews, each priced at 4.50 per pack.  All of these packs contain maximum variety, with no two figures being the same!  Phil Lewis has spent a huge amount of time sculpting these, changing weapons, adding shields, cloaks or pouches, to make every figure different to the last.

ohhhh this sounds very nice indeed. Reminds me of pre-slotta cit***l

But will any of them be new figures, or will they just be slight variants on the existing ones?

There's a mix of both, most of the regular foot will be conversions and variants on existing figures, but the command, shamans, gun crews, etc contain a lot of new sculpts.

Could be some really interesting late-medievals coming up then. The Fomorians appear to have become the Balori (sounding a bit like Star Trek - do they sue as well?).

Cheers Bob

Is there any chance of giving all the fantasy bowmen /archers longer bows while doing the Warband variants?

Couldn't you release them as an "old range"? Then no conversions needed and could always re-release as a Warband range later

Works for me.

Post by: Leon on 07 November 2017, 09:49:24 PM
To be honest I'm not sure what we're doing with them.  They've been master moulded but as they weren't in the Warband rules we didn't bother doing anything with them.  I'm hoping to tie up some of these loose ends through the first 6 months of 2018 so we can work something out then.

Post by: Dunnadd on 09 November 2017, 12:38:01 AM
On the seventh day of the eleventh month of the year 2017 of our Lord, Leon made the Sacred Oath to release the Fomorians from their non-cast bondage by the sixth month of the year 2018. And that, upon his very life, no tank , armoured personnel carrier or other historical miniature would prevent this from taking place.  And there was much rejoicing.

For the people had been crying out for many years "let my people go (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vf6jBP4YXwo)" and "set my people free"

But the Dark Lord is allowed to do he wishes, He can twist and manipulate the time and space continuum of the 10mm universe, pour scorn and pain upon the casting dwarves, Neglect to send FSN's latest order. Twist Technos arm until he produces Duckmen (or even Duck Men).  Re- release the HOTT Penis men army. OOPS! I promised never to mention them again.  Anything he wishes he can do or not do - If Adele lets him 

So while he has made a definite statement, in his all powerful state the six month of the year 2018 may not occur in the 10mm universe until December 2025 in our time.
