I think a hero character or two for each army would be great, usually on cavalry, dragon or some other beast in relation to the army... Could have an undead necromancer, dark elf with a hero on a spider chariot, high elf on a dragon... Things like such...

Bully Leon as much as you like..... Grin Grin Grin

I really enjoy going to town on individual figures !

The only drawback from Leon's point of view is that he'll only sell a handful......compared to the troops that would be regarded as 'grunts'.....Would folk be prepared to pay extra, for what are effectively 'one offs' ?

Cheers - Phil

Yes - because its only the odd figure.

I recently bought the Zulu chief for 50p for a single figure, compared to 1.65 for a pack of 10. And was quite happy to do this, as I only need 1.

I have always really liked the character figures that came in the WM command packs. And its great to see Pendraken doing similar with Warband.

Read the original now - rather than just Phil's answer.

And yes big monster things would be great - these were always good from a WM point of view. They cost about the same as a pack of normal troops.

I'd happily pay 5-10 for one hero, provided it was pretty sizeable... Like a chariots (dark elves, undead), dragon (high elves), elephant/Mammoth (barbarians),tree (wood elves) ...

I wouldn't complain another extra cost... Malekith from GW was a 50 model...

Fine by me, chums.....

As I say....you'll have to bully Leon.  Wink Grin

It wasn't until I worked for the Evil Empire in the late Eighties/early Nineties, that I got my head around this.

In those days...A pack of 'grunts' (at 28/30mm) would come out at about 1 per figure.....but so were the 'character' figures.
When the price of a 'command group' seemed to go rocketing up...I must admit, I thought, that's a bit excessive.....Until I thought about it.

Grunts.....Sell hundreds/thousands/tens of thousands ? (more ?).....Command groups ?....A relative handful.
The time it took the sculptor to make the command figures, might have been a teeny BIT longer... but the number of figures would have been a tiny fraction of the sales of the 'grunts'.

It's like a one off figure, like Napoleon (or Wellington)....Just as an example.
Probably takes one of my colleagues a little bit longer to make those.....but only charge Leon almost the same amount as a 'normal' trooper.

You never, ever see a battle with hundreds of the ultimate commander of the force on the table.

I know a LOT of you understand this......But there are a few who haven't had this pointed out.

Hope that all makes sense ! Wink

It's definitely something we'd like to do, Barbarian chieftain on a mammoth, Elf on an eagle, Goblin warlord or a big whacking chariot, things like that.  It's timescales at the moment really and getting some other projects out of the way before starting new ones.

But this is clearly more important!

Make it happen, I'm on hunger strike until I see the update!

Not talking about a limited run, as somebody could essentially monopoly them onto a certain auction site... Bit like the 2009 update of Space Hulk...

I think if the molds are made,  they should be put into the rules. I plan on building multiple armies, even upto 200/300 units... I have no intention of changing brand and I see this as an investment... A lot of the guys at the local gaming place play the bigger scales with "heroes"... So if I cam get them into this scale anything would be helpful Smiley
