PostSubject: Looking for old Empire plastic shields   Tue 1 May 2012 - 21:45

Hi all-

I am looking for the old empire plastic shields, the ones with the Ostland bull symbols on them to be exact. I can't find any pictures online for reference- but if you have them you know what I'm talking about.

Willing to buy or trade- have an OOP Nigh Goblin shaman with cauldron, OOP Blood Dragon Vampire Counts knights on foot and 1 mounted- and some in print goblin warbosses.

Let me know!

Might be usefull, but the shield you're talking about is most likely Bretonnian...

You know I had the same thought- but I've check all the bitz and sprue viewer websites for the Brets, and none of the shields have them- they're all blank- for the transfers, which I know Bretonnia uses heavily. I mean I'm pretty sure I have this memory- maybe from the 6th edition warhammer starter set. It came with orcs and empire. I vividly remember the empire not having the shields they use now- all round ones- for sure with like lions on them or something funky.

Sorry for the sketchy details- but either way the shield if OOP and whoever it was assigned to- I want it Wink

Keep digging!

It's an old bretonnian shield, no longer available
possibly 5th ed.









I have one Laughing

I made a green stuff mold of it and I use green stuff to duplicate it.
you can see a picture of my duplicates here
Offcourse I won't sell you the original but if you can't find an other source I'd be willing to send you some green stuff copies of it. I'll only charge shipping costs Wink (which should be around Ä1,50 to America if you stay under 50 grams)

The good Captain's offer is generous indeed, it took me *ages* to track one down on eBay for my Ostlander elder to go to war suitably armoured.

Generous is an understatement but I find it not uncommon in the forums we tread. Wink

This thread shows why this is the only wargaming forum I frequent these days!

Tom's is indeed a friendly & helpful forum. There are other places where people play nice too though. The Lead Adventure Forum springs to mind (link). A number of TBMFers are members there.

That's not a bad forum, but it's still not as friendly as TBMF!

+1 to LAF over here as well.

Some of the best of the best are on Lead Adventure, but they're usually wrapped up in their own hobby world. Still great to see their games and boards though.

But yeah I see a lot of eagerness on this forum- this what my 5th post, who knows?- but I've been lurking for years now. This is a perfect example with the shields- a huge boon I can't stress enough but more importantly its the MathHammer Nrrds on here and the rules lawyers. I have so many tweaks made up for my upcoming (long in the future *sigh*) Grand Campaign for Mordheim, but all of it I found within half an hour of browsing around here.

I say you want to connect to the old school lead loved all around the world- go to LAF.

But for Mordheim, Mordheim, Mordheim- there's only one place in my mind. Wink

Hats of to the Captain! Those casts look good! It's a strong visible signal, equipping all of your soldiers with the same desing of shield... I do the same with my Stirlanders (only with plaster shields) and have already equipped my 20 Swordsmen and 60 Spearmen with the same shields...

I only managed to find one shield (and only after a very thourough dig through my bitsbox).
