Shield and sorcery

The Tzeentchii champ is nearing completion. Time to pick a shield - after some rummaging I found this classic in my drawers. 

What do you think? It's certainly has an old school charm...

  2. Yes, lovely choice. I've got a very vivid memory of my older brother painting a goblin archer with that shield in a vivid Hobgoblin orange :)
    The champion is coming on a treat – the mini-griffon head is an inspired conversion.

  3. Very nice choice of shield.

    If my memory serves me correctly, that is in fact an old (circa 1987-9) Goblin shield from the old Warhammer Fantasy Battle Armies box which contained 10 each of a Wood Elf, Dark Elf, Skaven, Dwarf, Orc and Goblin and cost the princely sum of £10! Yes, that's right, 60 figures for a tenner! Those were the days......!

    I look forward to seeing it painted.

    1. You are absolutely correct, sir!

      I bought that box in -92 I think - it was the first plastics I ever bought. The sculpts are actually pretty good - the skaven especially - but the production technology is stoneage level compared to now.

  10. I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
    liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
    reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
    became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
    ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC (www.ultimatelifeclinic.com) in March, 2020. Their
    treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
    the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
    treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.
