The tale of zonkcast is a classic story of the dangers of online forums and shopping.

The full story can be found at

But a long story made short is a scammer took advantage of a warhammer
 community starved of the mighty   big hats.  Many paid for minis that never
 arrived which not only is a breach of trust but should also be recorded in the great
book of interweb grudges as a crime against the gaming community!

Anyway I managed to get my hands on some of the great weapon warriors and 
blunderbuss dudes.  I had two sheets if the old school transfer which although 
time has meant I lose a couple when trying to attach the flat shields allow for 
an appropriate nod to the early 1990's and this classic range of miniatures.

I also managed to get one of the sorcerers without his banner poles but I am not sure 
if anyone received any of the cool looking bull centaurs.

Converted skull cracker

This is my converted skull cracker which uses a recast iron daemon which I only found out after it arrived.  If the price is too good to be true it probably is!

Anyway it uses the ork battlewagon upgrade sprue deff rolla which can be raised and lowered as needed.

Finished bull centaur Taur'ruk

Bull centaur Taur'ruk conversion from one of the forge world bull centaur renders.

The big hat is simply a plastic chaos dwarf warrior hat with some horns from the 5th edition skeleton warriors box set.

Really happy with how he turned out but I have yet to decide what war gear I will equip him with.
