    I wanted to post this ad that I found in a Dragon magazine that I got last week. Tell me what you think about it.

    I received the pic earlier and I think I should add it alongside the unique pictures in the gallery…

    I had the picture of the dwarf but not the one of the half-orc… these are the only “graphical” representations of the unreleased warbands!
    I think it is a must-see

    That’s very nice indeed, Master Jdbrown55.

    I thought it would be nice to see what colors they were depicted as. My half-orcs are not this color and I don’t have any of the dwarves.

    when I look at this sheet of advertisement, I can’t help but think…
    “ahhh… these were the good days indeed…”

    nostalgia, nostalgia…

    Exactly! That is why I like the old ads and the old blister card backs.

    Great find Jason. Thanks for showing this to us.
    Can you tell me which Dragon magazine and which page it is please (I added the picture on wiki gallery here: http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Catalogs_%28Mithril%29)?

    It confirms again that MW346 are haf-orcs & MW-347 are the dwarves. ;)

    as milo pointed out, it indeed clearly states out that, despite what the Man used to call them to sell them… the half orcs are the mw346 and the dwarves MW347….

    but historically they are always remembered the other way around ;)

    Note the carry through of the sea-blue for the Gondorian soldiers, later seen in the Lossarnach illustrations.

    I agree to everybody here. Absolutely great Jason!
    So- seem that we all have missed this January 95 . . . . ;)

    Excellent Master Hobbit! Is there nothing that you don’t have?;)
