OK, the models look cool but there was a reason that GW killed off the Fimir.

RE: Fimir
I was confused by the fact the list was GW official till i got to bit when it said it was a cut down O&G Blush But there again i think its the 6th edition book but it wouldn't be hard to update it.

The figures are nice, but i guess the Fimir don't reallty fit in with the fluff for albion anymore.

true, mostly they were not popular. Also didn't help that the gw models where ogre size, when they should been around the 25-20 mm bases size.
like many of the races in warhammer at that time, they were more of an outline then anything.

Unlike other so call evil army, they were not looking for gold or power. If any thing they were more akin to Tyranid then anything, sure they took slaves and what not, but it was mainly the need to live that drove them. Also loved the fact they were one of the few non-LOTR looking troops. (main reason why I liked the skaven when they came out) but thats a rant for other day.

I been playing with the idea of an army of Fimirs, might use either the Lizardmen list or the Beast of Chaos list. I'll have to make sure someone can cast the lore of life, as most of the spells do deal with marsh and water. maybe beast too.
Good Find Slick

P.S. Whats the matter Biblo, Scared that the Fimirs might cut into your Chaos Dwarf slave trade allitle? Wink

Well the Fimirs breeding practice is what was the final nail in the coffin of the Fimir race.

Chaos Dwarfs will breed slaves when needed.

Either way, they were fun back in HeroQuest and could make a interesting unit in a scenario.
