I finally managed to pick up the new Heru warriors set, and am painting them up at the moment. Awesome figures with some great little details on them. I think some of the best heru yet, thanks Chris.

What I did want to ask, was if there are any new stuff planned for the Aegyptus lines this year? knowing you are hard pushed at the moment with the greeks rules and the barage of requests from the greek players, and the efforts atm to get the wendigo book out(which sounds like its coming into place for you finally) I dont expect any hard and fast answer, just a "hopefully you might get" would be good.

Also are there any new Hero options in the works? as these seem to be the major defficiency to most of the figure ranges on the whole, most armys only seeming to have one basic hero model available(apart from Asar who have a decent amount and Basti who seem to have a whole wealth of heroic figures). Both my Heru and Anubi Harbingers hope there may be some news on this front.

Cheers, John F.

New Aegyptus minis that are planned for next year include Warband Starter Sets for the To-Tanem, Khemru, and Anubi. Note, these will not contain all-new miniatures, but any of the new minis in the sets will be available on our online store for the 6 weeks after the set's release, so that players who already have some of the minis in the set don't have to buy a bunch of extra stuff. It's too early to say when these will be ready.

There are also a few suprises planned, especially around the summer, as we'll be celebrating the Croc's 10th anniversary then.

If you are looking for a Heru Hero, do you have the original Heru Hero sculpted by Ben Siens? (It is pointing, and has a Pole Arm). The mini is discontinued, but Debs may have a couple in the bins, if you want one.

I have one of the Heru hero figs if Debs can't find one.

I'm looking for the khemru harbringer with shield, I think it has been discontinued 3 years ago. Maybe this one is also in the bins?

This mini will be coming back with thee Khemru deal, and he'll be briefly available singly for a few weeks when the deal comes out.

Thanks for your answer, I will be watching the site so I won't miss it (I have all the Khemru I need, except this one).

And an Anubi Master of Words would be great as well.

I would just like to see alternative hero / unit leader figures for any and all the races.

Do I get to claim at least partial credit for being the one to suggest the use of the out of production miniatures to make the Khemru and other starter packs?

Actually, I want to know if the old KH-202 Harbinger of Khanum with mace and shield (seen here: http://thebarkingcrocodile.blogspot.com ) will be briefly available as a separate figure.

Since we are talking new figures, I want to suggest creating miniatures to represent the Harbingers at the Fall of Abydos, these are premier Harbingers of Aegyptus, so no additional rules need to be written. An-puat of the Shadowy Cloak, Neith the White Huntress, Ireqai the Spear Slayer, etc.

Absolutely, Wyatt -- in the words of the great Stan Lee, you shall receive the coveted No-Prize!

But seriously, yes, that's the one that will be a part of the set, and he'll be available online for a while once the set is released.

"No-Prize"?

Cool! I'd totally love a figure of Odysseus as "No-Man" (the encounter with the cyclops)

I'll be looking forward to getting the alternate harbinger.

Thanks
