Question:

OK, this might be a stupid question, but i never knew there were separate part codes for these two boxed sets. The Mercenaries don't have any plastic models available and i assumed it was the same for Skaven; people just bu the Night Runner and Free Company boxes since they are re-cut sprues of the original Mordheim models. What is the difference between Night Runners:

and Warp Hunters:
http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?catId=cat50042&prodId=prod1040365

The only difference i can see, besides charging 40% more per model, is the inclusion of the double-handed weapon in the Warphunter box. Although this could be just left out of the Night Runner promotional picture, obviously not all bits and extra arms are shown...

Anyone know where i can find pics of the sprues themselves?

Also it is sad that the accessory sprue and building sprues are no longer available.

The Nightrunners and the warpstone hunters are the exact same models/sprues.

I think the warphunter box just includes less miniatures (10 instead of 20).

I used to own the warphunter box and I own a box of nightrunners, and I can assure you it's the same thing! Smile

I think you can still get the accessory sprue no? Is it not in the bitz section of the WHFB section of the GW site? What's the buildings sprue incidentally?

The building sprue has some plastic bits which go with the card buildings. There are some windows, a ladder, parts of a roof, and the corner and edge bits used to assemble the buildings.

Ash is right, and those plastic bits are great for making buildings if you cut out the 'tabs' that hold in the cardstock to make room for thicker, and more realistic looking, foamcore walls. Which reminds me, I must post up some pictures of my terrain. I have at least three buildings made with the plastic corner bits and foamcore walls.

And it is a pity that you can no longer get them.
