Showcase: Heroquest


To round it all off, here's the whole Heroquest set all finished and set up togeher for a nice group shot.

I just really like those figures. I mean it's hard not to; there's a whole generation of wargamers bascially imprinted on these lumps of plastic. Another nice thing about the set is that there isn't too many of any of the monsters, so it never gets monotonous. The largest number of any figures is the eight Orcs, and when it comes to Orcs ....  come on, when it comes to Orcs that's a number we're more than capable to cope with, right? ;-)

 Hope you like them!

Showcase: Heroquest Villains


What's a hero without a villain though? Just another undesirable troublemaker. So here's the two Big Bads of Heroquest, the surprisingly buff Chaos Warlock, and the Greater Daemon of Kh- no, wait. The Bloodthi-, no, sorry, entirely wrong there. It's the Gargoyle of course!

Remember when the Gargoyle was the biggest figure in your collection? Yeah, I think Space Marines are about that size now.

Showcase: Heroquest Heroes


Here's our heroes! It's hard to come up with postings for these without using the word 'iconic'. Especially with these chaps. I mean this guy is THE White Dwarf after all. And all the others as there too! Angry Elf, 5-Spaces-Stare Barbarian, and of course Fancy Wizard!

Can't say anything that hasn't been said about these figures, can I? So I'll just shut up. Hope you like the figures!

Showcase: Heroquest Chaos


Here come the Heavies of Heroquest, the Dealers of Damage, the Clenchers of Fists - it's the Chaos Warriors and Fimir. The former of course are classics and very familiar to anybody who ever dipped a toe into the sweet lake of Games Workshop. Fimir are just an incredibly interesting little bit of Warhammer history. Thanks to the Oldhammer people we have several interesting blog posts to read about what they were and what happened to them. 

Either way, hope you like them! Stay tuned for more Heroquest figures.

Showcase: Heroquest Furniture


Alright, this one might take a bit of abstraction. Most of you will instnatly recognize the Heroquest furniture. And that they're lacking the cardboard parts. Oh well. All I can say is that in the not-too-distant future I'll post another set of Heroquest, and that that one will also have the cardboard components. Until then - enjoy these!

Collectors will be aware that one of the most important details about a HQ set is the candlesticks on the altar. Those were intact (apart for one of the flames, which got replaced with a bit of green stuff). The tail of the rat on the stretcher bank had gotten lost though, so I sculpted a new tail. It's not too common seeing a HQ rat with its tail in a lying down position!

Hope you like the bits here. Next time we're getting into the really good stuff.

Showcase: Heroquest Orcs & Goblins


Back to Heroquest! Starting with some of the most iconic Orcs and Goblins figures anyone could think of. Painting Heroquest is always good fun. These figures are clear, cast cleanly, and very much reduced to the important bits. Just brilliant stuff. :-D Hope you like them!
