Out of the Mists
So, I just learned that Forge World is issuing a set of Fimir models. It seems that these critters just won’t go away.
The story of the Fimir is well-enough known to anyone who has followed the development of the Warhammer world. When Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay was in development in mid-1986, GW miniature designer Jes Goodwin and I created them in response to a challenge by GW boss and Warhammer co-creator Bryan Ansell, who wanted the game to have a distinctive and unique race. For one reason and another, they didn’t make it, and were quietly dropped from the Warhammer canon – but every so often, they pop back up again. Like Bigfoot, every few years there is another Fimir sighting.
Fimir miniatures were included in the HeroQuest board game developed by GW for Milton Bradley.
They were mentioned briefly in the 8th edition Warhammer Fantasy Battles rulebook, although not included as playable creatures.
So who knows, maybe they’re coming back. I always kind of liked them, but then I’m biased.
