It is a struggle to cast miniatures, so I was thinking that there might be someone in here who knows a place that can cast my miniatures ?

Best regards

Lasse

+ more to come

I thought I'd created and introduced the Toad King character in 2002 for the home made adventurer card 'Reign of Toads' and placed it on the Talisman 2nd Ed. Yahoo Group in 2002 (where he still resides) for people to use in their own games.

I could, of course, be wrong and perhaps someone else used the concept earlier than that...

 *Edit* As you are about to see, I was wrong :)

There was one in the 1987 Le Héraut Citadel magazine from France (a forerunner to the Citadel Journal).

There is some reference to a Toad King from Ken in 1999, though I can't find it, so that would pip me :)

Ah well, even earlier than Ken!  And I thought I was being clever :)

Paul Scott

*EDIT* Apologies for the above idiocy.  I had thought the King of the Toads idea was new when I posted it in 2002 and as nobody corrected me at the time I carried merrily on in my delusions.  In my version, which was just an adventure card, and not a character card, he just popped up and having just been stepped on, turned everyone in the region into toads.  I shall download the new card and tread more warily in future.

There is also my version of the Toad King which you can download from the above link!

The Toad King chart shows the number of spaces the Toad King can move to when he is activated - he only moves 1 space when a character rolls a 1 for his turn. A player may choose to move either the Reaper or the Toad King when using my version of the Toad King.

I'm very late to this thread. A great idea.

 

I can't help feeling the toad king should have some "kingly" ability, such as sending toaded characters on quests with minor rewards of some sort, or with a punishment for failing to complete on time. Perhaps a toad quest must be completed before you can stop being a toad, e.g. Go to a woods space or land on a space with a magical object that is turned in.

That's an interesting thought.

These drop boxes don't work well, they always end up with:

The Toad king has a better design than the Reaper and the Werewolf!

Hallo fellas :) I have been away from this forum for some time now, actually for some years :D Well, I have beginning to play Talisman again, mostly with my children.
Anyway, I was painting my city minatures and took a look in my stuff and found these two old toads. I have got a lot off request on the Toad King through the time, so I am considering to sell these. Well, what else should I do with them ? :D

Maybe the Toad King should be an Alternate Ending when using Timescape.  Use one of the Slaan Figures since they are technically an ancient race; the old ones.

He is sculpted with green stuff from the buttom. I will be making more copies, or at least I plan to do so :D

 

... It is good to be back in the world of Talisman :)

Well, as I already have one of your Toad Kings, I suppose that I should let someone else have the chance to own one, especially a painted version!

 

You should put your site back online with your in-progress shots and downloads.
