thought you would like that L4.

Maksim:
I got mine from L4 as you know and if my memory serves me right the promo MO thing was how L4 got them... as for your snipet of info, thats really interesting because that means they will hardly ever turn up on ebay :(   Still nice to find out more on the little model!

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?


Grumble grumble.
I know what the pic is supposed to look like but I can't remember where. It is the same piece of "wall" terrain as the back cover of Codex Titanicus but taken at a steeper angle showing the back of some ork gargants. I've looked throgh my rule books and old WD but I just can't find it :(  I know the orks are there but I can't remember if they are pitched against some Eldar which may or may not include the Falcons. IIRC there's some Wraithlords in the pic as well....it could be from an old Eavy Metal or something...

Anyway I'm not completely sure about the battlewagons but to me it looks as though it's got a slightly simpler, flatter turret and the engine bit is a bit simpler too. ...but of course it could just be the painters who trimmed the models a bit...

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

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

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.

Hi!

Another little known item were metal versions on the plastic warlord titan weapons. Also available from the US archive. I stumbled across them when Mojarn told me about the eldar X vehicles and exodites.

I use them for the chaos titans for that "distinct" look.

Thanks Darkone!

And, as a pleasant surprise to me, the dropship model actually looks kind of cool.

Which I suppose is also an unpleasant surprise as now I want one... or two.. or... :laugh:

Thanks for the pics sir! :D

Hi!

Too bad the archives are one of those things I dont think will ever return.

Could you be more specific with the weapons ?  I have metal ones as well but I am not sure which weapons you mean, were they metal copies of the plastic ones?  I ask because you could buy blisters of metal weapons and head and wondered if you meant them?  




Thanks Darkone!

my pleasure Heresiarch
