Well I didn't know you guys or were on line, back then, when my buddy work for G/W ! ? But if I did, I'd try to "cover" you if I could !? :D   I hope they release those new Tau pieces you saw in the new F/W book you bought, Doug !  At least that would be something !  :laugh:

Yep I only found out about the old models around 2000 when I joined the epic group and Paul's site.  After enquiries I started by collected White dwarf back issues and the rest was history.

As for the extra models from FW, I cant be sure if thats for completeness sake like the 40k manta rules or that they really will ask.  I am going to send an email and find out  :;):

Nice books though and a lot to read!!

Awsome pics Doug!

The metal pre-mk1 gargant is new to me but it looks really nice! :cool:  The tall resin gargant to the far left of the pic... Is that an original master with green stuff detail on it?

Cheers! :)

Can someone confirm if there ever were METAL versions of the old fashioned Eldar Falcon?

If so how could you tell its genuine?  I ask because I have 3 or 4 I think and there isnt visable signs at all, though the casting looks like it was from those times butthat doesnt mean anything either

I believe the Falcons depicted on the cover of 1st ed Codex Titanicus are the metal prototypes.
I've only ever heard about them through rumours but the ones on CT does look a little different from the plastic version. Still I have no idea if these were metal or resin. Same thing goes for the pre-plastic skull battlewagon (Which looks a lot better than the plastic version I might add :;): )

Edit: Looking through CT the falcons there look very similar to the plastic ones. Hmm... However I'm almost certain that I've seen a pic of the metal ones somewhere which looked a bit different...

Cheers! :)

ok the dropship photos are of one I found off ebay. ?I needed to buy some bits from U.S. Mail order in order to repair it and give it a decent repair/paint job.
As you can see I havent been able to do that yet

http://netepic.org/DOUG/journal%20updates/dropship3.jpg

http://netepic.org/DOUG/journal%20updates/dropship4.jpg

Unfortunately the other hasnt been put together so it wasnt any use in taking a photo.

Last but not least for the time being a strange little ork Traktor beam buggy ... something I never knew about til L4 mentioned it and passed one on. ?It was supposed to be a promo from U.S. Mail order. ?I have only seen one like it on ebay so how many were actually sold I can only guess but thanks again for that L4

Thanks WN,

I have some myelf and looking at them the difference is that they are heavier, if you find the pic you mention let me know.  As for the Metal battlewagon I havent found those, where is the pic for that again?

Hi Guys,

The mini-Traktor buggy was given away as a promo at the 1990 UK Gamesday.

The US also got some copies that were mostly given away to GW employees.

To my knowledge, they were never sold.

Shalom,
Maksim-Smelchak.

Hi Guys,

The SM Dropship was originally sculpted during the AT-1 era. but was never released at that time.

It was later released from US mail order as a BFG ship along with many of the Eldar X-vehicles.

Later, US mail order sold it as an Epic piece through the Epic archive.

Unfortunately, with the removal of the US archive, it has been stricken from the records and is no longer availible.

I have one and have been finagling with a local to get a second. He almost through it away with some miniatures until I gave him some money and took the pieces off his hands. He asked for the dropship back so I gave it to him. As far as I know, it's functioning as a fancy paperweight in his office at the moment. He's given up on gaming and recently asked me if I wanted it back.

I told him yes, but asked him to take some sort of compensation from me in return. He could use the money and we've always been friendly. People can be odd... myself included.

Shalom,
Maksim-Smelchak.
