|Here it is.|
Mighty Warriors is a game Games Workshop obviously made to repackage all the excess Advanced Heroquest miniatures they were left with. In this game the elf, dwarf and human warrior team up with the henchmen to take on the wizard (called the Chaos Wizard) and some skaven. You can get the rules for free here though Boardgame Geek indicates the game is somewhat poor. Might be worth a play, though for some reason you roll in the inside of the box to resolve combat.
Anyroads here are our heroes and their variants:-
|It's now like playing Street Fighter 2 - if you press Button B you get the alternative colour|
|Magnus the Bright, now in red, again painted by Sir Smurf of the Order of the Good Paint.|
|A comparison shot of the two Magnusi|
Somehow Magnus just isn't evil enough to be the main baddie in Mighty Warriors. Probably I'll probably replace the AHQ Wizard with an evil looking Chaos Sorcerer if I ever play Mighty Warriors.
The dwarf now has a choice of 2 colour schemes:-
|The two dwarves|
|The two elves - wood elf scheme and high elf scheme (l-r)|
|Warhammer Quest's Noble, ably painted by Ben (aka the Smurf).|
Incidentally if you happen to have a Warhammer Quest you want rid of, speak to me. Funnier things have happened (yes, Josh :P)...
Meanwhile, on the girl miniature front...
|Female wood elves rangers|
|Female elven ranger (or warrior-wizard if you will)|
The above lass was bought because in our first session Naomi wanted to play the Heroquest elf (who in AHQ still is able to fight reasonably well and cast some spells, albeit with a chance of failure to balance against poor wizards who aren't allowed armour or big swords). Despite the fact I didn't have the Heroquest miniature at that point, nothing could dissuade my nearest and dearest, so after a rather confused session using the AHQ elf I decided to treat her to the above pretty mini.
Well, it is pretty in my opinion (the picture doesn't do it justice) - to be honest she's rather nonchalant about it, muttering about how since it's not a proper RPG the gender of her model doesn't matter and preferring "Drunkie", the female swordsman figure we use for her henchman. "Drunkie" is a cheap D&D mini and is called Drunkie as she bends very easily and was almost horizontal when she emerged from the game box.
|The Elf Ranger's sister.|
|The Alternative Heroes - including 2 female elf rangers (the one on the left is Naomi's hero), an alt-mage with a fire theme, a Warhammer Quest noble, an alt-Dwarf, alt-Elf|
|Dwarf daemon-slayer, a guy who can't seem to get himself killed|
|The Warhammer Quest Trollslayer|
|A Dwarf Thane|
|Hic, be right there boss!|
The above chap is to represent the dwarven brewmaster, a Warhammer Quest add-on that was published in Deathblow along time. Did I mention I want that game? (Expect a Pimp my Warhammer Quest series in 2015 at this rate).
