Found my missing mini - but gave myself a fright as I sorted through a dark corner and realised I had more plastic and metal than I thought.

Do you still have this? While I also grew up on RP and have quite a bit on hand, I may have something else for trade, or maybe a cash (PayPal) deal. PM me with terms, wish list, etc.

Can I enter with something from Babylon 5 but from Mongoose publishing as manufacturer? (now anyway the are sold by Iron Wind)

Spellscape

Can anyone answer my question ? I'd like to enter with B5 but online store of Ironwind in B5 category is empty

Darklord
10-08-2010, 05:06 PM
Apologies Spellscape - this slipped through my net!!
Im afraid the answer is no - the item must have been available from Ironwind within the last 6 months and unfortunatley the licence expiredover 12 months ago.
The rules are pretty flexible but this ones just too far past to allow Im afraid. Hopefully you can find something else to enter ?

So many problems getting this together

Do they allow converted minis for this? I've got a battletech mini that's I've converted into a dual axe wielding Warforged for my D&D group. The only conversion are cutting away the guns, jet thrusters, stabilizing fins, and adding the axes.

Damn! I knew it was going to be close but this is getting ridiculous. I was on the home stretch - working on details and basing when I drop the damn thing and mangle a wing. I can do it.... I can.... 24h to go (16 paint and photo hours)....
After work it's on!
