People Often Email me questions that they should really be posting on the forum. Here is one such question.

When you contacted Morris did you happen to ask him if he had ever worked on books for the elf and dwarf? There could still be copyright stuff keeping him from sharing the details if he did have books he never finished, but it would be great to find out just in case he has stuff that was never published. I am, of course thinking about quests. Let me know, thanks.
This question of course refers to my post about the “unsolvable”code puzzle in the quest presented in the 2nd HeroQuest novel for which I had to contact the author Dave Morris (via fellow author Jonathan Green) to find out what the solution was. You can read the original post Here

As it happens I did ask Dave Morris if their were any more HeroQuest novels planned after the 3 that were published for much the same reasons - here is his response;

“There were no more HQ books planned after those three. At least, not that I know of.”

How's that for an anti-climax huh?

Here's a new random and irregular feature for the forum

I quite often get emails from people asking about the things I've posted, why these people choose to email me rather than replying to the relevant topic forum is beyond me - but in an attempt to get a little more traffic to our humble corner of the internet I've decided to make a feature of these questions via email. So here goes ….

Sacred Sockpuppet of Sigmar‏

Hiya Mort'

just joined after lurking for some time while I tottered on the fence deciding whether or not to get back into gaming. The final "push" came when I saw your sockpuppet, and I remembered all the GOOD things about the hobby :-)
So, c'mon, spill the beans. what is he? I'm guessing you've converted the mini from something like the top of an Empire standard but I've googled til my fingers bled and can't find anything appropriate!
Thanks again for the inspiration and I hope you don't mind me asking.

See you 'on the boards'
'ello Greg

I'm guessing the model in question here is this one:

This is in fact not a conversion at all but a stock figure from Citadel's Mordheim range (also it doesn’t actually belong to me but my friend Mutt). Specifically this miniature is a Zealot from the Witch Hunter faction (you find pictures of in the colour section of the Mordheim Rulebook pg100 and pg108).

Here's a Link to Witch Hunter Figures on the Collecting Citadel Miniatures Wiki

Before we got into playing our dungeon-based MortiS Quest games, my group used to mainly play Mordheim so we had many Mordheim figures lying around which went on to become PCs and NPCs in MortiS Quest

Given GW's recent policies toward nice old miniatures like this, it seems unlikely that this model is still available, but they were quite common for a long time so you should beable to pick up this fella from eBay for (hopefully) a reasonable price.  
While searching for images to use in this post I came across this nifty conversion which you might want to consider having a stab at doing should eBay prove problematic

 ^ It looks to be made from the running victim from the Citadel Plastic Giant plus some bits from the Citadel Plastic Flagellant kit and should prove pretty easy to execute

Well that's all for now - Until next time; if anyone has any more questions about things I've posted on the forum, please reply to the relevant post on the forum
