Dwarf shields
« on: September 19, 2012, 10:36:54 AM »
Quick question folks...

When I bought a few packs of the Feudal dwarves, I picked up some spare sprues of the rounded-off kite shield style ones to replace the different shapes that come in the multi packs.

I was just looking through the armoury and it seems they've disappeared, but will they be coming back or have they been phased out for good?  :?

Just asking as if there are any more packs in the pipeline, I would like to equip them all with the same shield design.

EDIT: I've just realised I've put this in the wrong section.  :oops: Sorry.

most mornings i wake up grumpy.   sometimes i just let him sleep.

my life consists of brief snatched moments of living my life hidden deep among chaos, confusion& the  going crazy, every night i go to sleep filled with hope & enthusiasm for the new day coming.  then i wake up & think "here I go again" & just aim to survive.

Hi Sal,

No, they were the ones from the original Dwarf multipack, here:

Sorry, maybe "rounded-off kite shields" wasn't the best description of them. I'm sure I picked up two extra sprues to replace the different shaped ones in the other packs though.  :scratchhead:

He's right! The oval Dwarf shields that come with the (original) multi-pack have vanished from the store! You cannot at present buy them seperately online. So are they returning Sally? Please say they are. Pretty please.

Come to think of it, weren't the dwarven weapons from the multipacks (the handwapons and spears with molded on hands) made available seperately too? Or did I imagine that? Because they are not there either now. Are they coming (back) soon?

That would be bad, we use them quite a lot, they crop up on the strangest figures - I would not be at all surprised to see one on an Otherworld Orc or a Gripping Beast Viking.

I take it that's a "no" then? The original multipack shields have been retired?  :huh?:
