Anyone have any lizardmen they can part with? 7 Years, 8 Months ago  
I just got into DF back in November/December of 2006. I already have a bunch of sets (love them all) and all the orcs and skeletons (what a bargain at $5!). I love lizardmen, but unfortunately they have been long gone since well before I started buying DF. I would like to get the Lizardman Tribe set, and a set of ambushers (they are sooo freakin cool looking!). Anyone have any extra they could trade or sell?

Shoesan;

IF you can't find any lizardmen, check the GW store nearest you and grab some Skaven; tehy aren't exactly the same, but they're close enough to work. Except you gotta assemble and paint them.
BUT, if you CAN find DF lizardmen, GRAB 'EM! They're FAR superior.

See ya!

I'd put one of those searches on eBay that last for 120 days. They will email you when something like that pops up.

Otherworld was having several on eBay. Yep - this is the UK - and it won't be as cheap as all the skeltons that are around.

I got a second set for myself from Otherworld - having bought one of the last from DF.

I'll trade some lizardmen for a door boat or two!

Thanks for the tips. I really want the DF Lizrdmen. Many reasons... I think they look great, I don't wan't to paint them (I'm not that good), and I am a collector, so I want to get all of the DF minis (well, the sets too!).

I check Ebay, and I saw them (I think from Otherworld) for $45. That wasn't counting shipping. I figured that was kinda high. I guess I will just keep checking.

I'd trade a boat for lizardmen, but since I have only been buying DF since December, I missed the boat on the boats too! I'd actually like one of those myself.

I will get some, somehow, someway... eventually...

Shoe,

I bought some NP sets off of otherworld this year. I agree they are priced appropiatly since DF no longer provides them, but if you are on the DF crack habit it is hard to not look at his inventory. He was great to work with. Keep looking and good luck. Remember 'use the force'

Shoe -

$45 for a set of DF Lizardmen isn't bad at all. I bought the last set at my FLGS last year, and they were $39.95, and that was an OLD price tag! it may have even been the original MSRP, I don't honestly remember. So, $45 for a collectible such as that ain't too shabby, friend! If OW still has them, GRAB 'EM!
Before I do.

How much were the lizardman tribe packs when they came out?

They were $39.00

Before we went to direct sales over the internet that price was really as low as we could sell them for and still make a reasonable profit. Once other companies started to sell REALLY cheap plastic figs we knew it was over. Shame because I had planned to do many more figures including player characters mounted and unmounted, even had the first batch sculpted by Sandra Garrity in an old school style...they were going to be beautiful figures painted and set with jewels (similar to the Treasures and magical items set) It's one of my biggest regrets that i didn't just go ahead and produce them anyway in a small limited edition run...but at the time we just didn't have the money to gamble with...had to sell the sculpts, which were then "altered" and thus the original design and flavor were ruined...

DRAT! (and double drat!)

But thanks for sharing that tidbit of DF lore Stefan.

I remember hearing about those adventurers.... ah well.

The truth is, while I really enjoy the figures that DF released, it was a wise decision to focus energy and resources elsewhere. Between WOTC's prepainted figures and Reaper's excellent oldschool RPG stuff (plus it's more Magic-inspired Warlord line), there just isn't that much of a need in the market for more.

I do wish there were more lizardmen available, though -- they were my favorites, and I only got one set. I'd love another. I have painted up many a skink as a replacement, but they just aren't the same...
