I had a thought on remembering a long time ago you doing a Yak bounty hunter model that might have been a good base, but it has to be either a figment of my imagination or a one-off reward for the winner of a TribeMeet, as I can't see anything like it on your website.

The closest base model for a Thirty/Thirty conversion might actually be Gor Halfhorn off of FW, but £22 to cut up and throw away the majority of the model seems excessive.
The Yak Man bounty hunters were made by @KungFuPanda alas if only @MancInventor had read the prize list in the correct order @Yaksam his son(!!) wouldn’t have stolen mine! And that’s the “German” slogan Die Dave origin story 🤣🙄🤬

I suppose it was better than the next year when I won a category and he gave the prize to someone else and “forgot” to read it out. His crimes against the Troll are many.

That said I’d love it if we could persuade @KungFuPanda to cast some more!

More alternative Thirty/Thirty bodies from Mantic coming out on Friday?


Either the faun or the minotaur, both with head and arm swaps (depending on the overall scale for Thirty/Thirty) might work, and then there's several other wandering monsters for alternative use or kitbashing opportunities. For £18, that's not a bad deal these days.

Not the best photos but he’s the one stood next to MC Mank in the bottom image and in the white corner in the top image @MusingWarboss its @headcase14 model I think.

Now I want to see mounted combat in the THUNDERCUBE…

”In the red corner! He’s the Captain without number, head turner, troll burner…it’s @CaptainDangerous and Tukneel, his cyber badger!”

”In the blue corner! He’s the royal Orange Menace, the troll maker who’s a heart breaker…give it up for @ClockworkOrange astride the mighty psybercorn, Nibbles!

Not to distract from the event, but there may be Squig Jousting at the next Mankymeet!

P.s. updated me title! 😄😄😄

Huh, I was right there and I never even noticed his bestial head!! Cool model.

Might need to make the 'cube(s) a bit bigger to accommodate mounted combat and maneuvering, though.
THUNDERMENAGE!

Or

THUNDERPADDOCK!

If you prefer! 😁

Squig Jousting sounds fun, reminds me of these guys:

Anyone remember that jousting game that came with White Dwarf once?
Yep but never played it. “Full Tilt”, WD215 (I googled that last bit).

If I remember correctly, Eric's Hobby Workshop did a video on Full Tilt on the Youtubes. Painted up some knights (and had a chat about heraldry :giggle:).

Hi All,

Do we have anyone on the strength that could make us a digital 3D version of the Yak head logo we could use? STL file etc. We want it for event merch, trophies etc but it would also be good to be able to scale it down for use as a 28mm head!

Love the Troll
