This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

90s Warhammer Army Flyers
« on: February 22, 2015, 05:03:37 pm »
My google-fu is super weak, 'cause I can't find any mention of these anywhere.

Back in the early to mid 1990s, my local gaming shops used to give out these little green flyers to promote Warhammer Fantasy Battle. There was a flyer for each army, I believe.

They were not very large, but were glossy and full color. I think that they unfolded, pamphlet style, but my memory is foggy and they might have been stapled.

For purely nostalgic reasons, I'd simply love to see these again. Has anyone seen scans of these anywhere? I've been able to find nice images of the catalogues from those days, but there's been no mention of these little flyers.

Thanks and so not as to leave you with a content-free post about nothing, here's a pretty cool site that may trigger the nostalgia parts of your brains (if you played warhammer back in the day or you wanna see pics of 40K Squats).

One of my favourite sites, put to very good use recently as I've stepped up my collection towards an Oldhammer Skaven army.

Speaking of, I know the flyers you mean, and if anyone has scans of them, it would be the Oldhammer Facebook community. I'll throw a request up tonight.

Sweet, thanks!

And yes, old school Skaven rule. I hugely regret selling off my army back in the day. What I wouldn't do to get my grey seer and plague monks back. I just don't like the newer models :(
