what do you think on wysiwyg on using the heroquest gargoyle as a bloodthirster?

That was the biggest, bloodthirster type model that was in the original Heroquest right? If he fits well on a 60mm I think you'll be fine, but he'd be a bit small if I remember right (last time I played Heroquest was 1992 i think) :)

And for those not sure what it looks like, this is the best pic I could find online...




Again, i think he's going to be pretty small (he sits on basically a 25mm square), would work better as a demon prince i think, but maybe if you build his base up he'll work on a 60mm.

yeah since last thing you want it what happened to on of our lads and have the model removed along with a point for each game you've used him in as its not suitable under the "counts as rules".

You could scratch-build one in the style of Flame on's favourite greater daemon, but then you'ld definitely get thrown out. :lol:

I suppose you're a bit stuck if you hate the only model for something you want in your army though. Good luck.

Valid, but a model half the size is pushing your luck a bit and theres the line of site issue. If its not tall enough then you can't see it behind terrian when you know damn well you could the proper model.
I got given no end of hassle because of this when I had the older Greater Daemons when the new ones had just come out.

I believe when I read the events rules that most of the model must be made up of GW product. IE you can't buy a reaper giant model and use it for an ogre in fantasy or buy a conflict elf model, slap a bainsidhe arm on it and call it a bainsidhe.

Maybe pushing your luck.....but not illegal

It says in the blurb somewhere that a DP is at least 10 feet high......and how high is a tank in 40k ?? and you can see a DP or BT over all(I think) of them !!??
