As it says in the title, I'm on the lookout for some of the old metal GW Lothern Sea Guard models.
I appreciate these are in some demand and long OOP so might be a long shot but....gotta ask, right?

Please give me a shout if you can help.

Thanks,
Tom

I don't have any spare metal LSG models, so I can't help you there. In my experience, the best place to check for them is the UK ebay. They generally have the most WH models: ebay LSG search

Going rate at the moment seems to be €7-€10 per model. But you could get lucky with a unit or someone who just wants to get rid of them (I certainly did when I got mine).

Ye, thanks mate. I am keeping half an eye on eBay but not much up atm and want them in time for my next tourney a month from now.

I have 12 and a fellow Ulthuan user has provided 5 more. With a 4x4 unit filler I have what I need for now so time pressure is off.

I will eventually need 50-60 of them though so if anyone sees this some time from now, please give me a shout as I will still be interested.

All the best.

50-60 will make an impressive unit. I'd love to see pictures of that once it's done.

The IOB LSG actually make for a decent unit filler. I've also seen people use a RBT + crew as unit filler, which is nice and thematic.

Good luck with finding more. Sometimes you get lucky and find a good deal :)

What's IOB LSG?

It will be a while until they are painted but I will drop back in and show them off in a years time ;)

Island of Blood Lothern Sea Guard (sorry, I think in abbreviations too much). When GW release 8th edition, the boxed set, called Island of Blood, contained a High Elf force. Part of that force was a unit of 10 plastic lothern sea guard. They're pretty plentiful because of this, so you can usually pick up a unit of them for fairly cheap. They are quite a bit bigger then the metal LSG though.

Ah, yes of course. I already have them and use them for LSG and I am using the old GW ones as spearmen.
I have ordered some BlueStuff to mould some cool shields I like and the inevitably missing quivers.
I play The Ninth Age rather than Warhammer 8th FWIW.

Slightly off topic, but I recommend checking out Kings of War if you haven't already. Their elf figures are...not great, but the rules are phenomenal.

Sure. Thanks.
I am balls deep into T9A atm but after that I may check it out. T9A is a great game system nowadays IMO.

You forgot the link to the rules again ;)

Sadly, with the 3rd edition out, the free rules have also been removed. I'm sure you can find the free 2E rules still however.

I am in Sweden and I have about 30 of the old metal Sea Guard sculpted by Gary Morley with quivers, and a command group without quivers, all stripped. How desperate are you for classic Sea Guard, i.e. how much would you consider a fair price per model? Also, keep in mind that tracked and insured shipping could well be up to 20 USD.
