I noticed yesterday that The Shamutanti Hills is out for Advanced Fighting Fantasy yesterday.I also went into Games Workshop and asked if they had a game called Trolls in the Pantry.Also the geek behind the counter had never heard of the Battle of the Farm. Idiot.
I really liked those old Troll games. My favorite was "Oi, dat's my leg!".
I wanted to go to Waylands this weekend and buy that but Manflu caused me to fail a Save vs Poison and so ended up spending Saturday and Sunday in bed.GW? You'll be telling me they no longer stock Railway Rivals and Valley of the Four Winds next?Remember I have a scan of the counters for Battle of the Farm if you want to refight it really old school style.
I actually have enough RTB01 marines to do it as well. I'd have to use 'modern' orks though. I've got the counters as well.
I can do the Battle at the Farm Crimson Fists but they are all mostly modern figureshttp://i403.photobucket.com/albums/pp113/CoopdevilUK/battleatthefarm.jpgCantor should have a power fist not a power sword but everything else is WYSIWYG correct.
Nice collection of pics. Twnety-odd years now I've had that book (RoCII) in my possession and not till now did I realise they were wading through a river of yuch! Hell, I hadn't even noticed they were wading through a river!
I played the battle of the farm with all the right figures (though my beakies are painted grey not blue) a few years back. To be honest it was a little disappointing. Maybe we all had the wrong mindset but the marines won hands down every time. But then I never really took to RT quite the way I did to WHFB, loved the book just not the game so much.
