Looks pretty original to me. Old kits had printed instructions (you see it with things like the original battle wagons) and their cast quality back then was....variable to say the least.

What was the original retail price of that?


The Forge World website has been regularly archived by the Wayback Machine. In June 2011, that fortress wall set cost £690:

Versteckt in den Schatten deines Geistes.

The FW catalogues have always had prices in different currencies, and the international prices were always higher than UK price.

Thing is, it never mattered because FW charged everything in £ regardless of where you were, so these other prices were just this weird anomaly.

Right until they weren't, and overnight FW raised the prices for everyone that wasn't the UK.

What date is that catalogue from? The USD price works out at $1.65 / £1 which seems reasonable for 2009, 2011 and 2013 (presumably the prices quoted are correct at the time the catalogue went to print).

Nice find!

It does make me sad when people refer to stuff I remember being in production as vintage hammer though...I feel old!

Also heard back from FW, these were cast on demand and while they wouldnt give me an exact number, apparently less than 200 were made.

Congrats on getting one.

It is a hell of a kit for sure and one of the few FW items from the (old) imperial range that
I do not unfortunately own.

One can only guess about price tag but your wallet should beg for mercy right now...

Trench system next?

That was a fantastic kit. Always wanted to see one in person. So many great Forge World kits have been lost to the ages, especially in the terrain category.

Someone's mad they didn't get one.

@OP

Congrats on your new set. I've also always wanted one of these, and I'm hopeful one day I will own it. The only terrain-related item I've ever bought that was significant was the standard Realm of Battle board. It's just not seen often in my circles and always on my want list.
