From the mists of legend they come…

I’ve always been a fan of some of the more unusual creatures from the depths of Warhammer 3rd edition. Zoats, were wolves, jabberwock and many others haven’t had much limelight for many years.

I’ve been pleased to learn that the Fimir still have rules under the Age of Sigmar game system, but a little disappointed by how different the Forge World Fimir look compared to the classic models of old.

A Fomorian Goll sculpt

For some reason it took a pint of cider and much deliberation to actually just start typing this blog post. When I haven’t posted in a while I start to ponder how to return. Do I recap all that has happened since I last blogged? A bad idea since I’d spend the day figuring out what all that is. No, let’s just keep it simple, current and relevant.

Troll Outpost Swamp Warrior

As a Fimir collector, your choices for something official are slim. Forgeworld sell a pack of 3 warriors for £31. That’s it.

If you skim through eBay, you’ll see the classic Bibby models go for no less than £20 each. Rare collectibles, slowly losing quality, but rising in value.

Beyond this, you have to look at proxies, conversions or alternative models. Fortunately, there are a few gems out there. One, perhaps the best, is Troll Outpost’s Swamp Warrior. It’s a great sculpt and it’s cheaper than Forgeworld.

Age of Sigmar: The Fimir

What began as a small project to put together a few Fimir models for Age of Sigmar has quickly exploded into a whole host of Albion bogeymen. Knowing how rare (read: expensive) the classic metal Fimir models are, I didn’t invest any hope in getting them. Instead I converted some plastic Heroquest models I have lying around in my various spare Heroquest boxes. I’d also managed to trade for a limited Jes Goodwin sculpt, which is of the same scale. In the long term, I planned to slowly gather a few Forgeworld models to convert as leaders and then perhaps sculpt or convert others as the warband developed.
