WIZKIDS Crimson Skies, help needed!

Postby General Groundman » Wed Oct 21, 2009 12:22 pm

Hi there! :)

I just stumbled upon my old crimson skies box full of wizkids planes and I am eager to fly again. But first I went to the internet and was shocked, that crimsonskiesuniverse is down! :cry:

Iam looking for a complete product list of all wizkids crimson skies miniatures (especially the limited editions). Perhaps you can help me! :P

It´s well known to me that there are some limited editions around, and I got 2 of them, Crawford and Steele. But are there any more?!? :?:

The crimson skies marquee set is some kind of myth I read about. Can someone tell me more about this marquee set?


Best Regards

As far as I know the Marquee Set is the same as the Promotional Demo Set that had Crawford and Steele planes and pilots along with dice, cards, and rules. The figs are the same as the normal ones, as far as I know. So you're not missing out on anything unless I've just never heard of it.

Welcome to the forum!!!

A fair number of us don't do the Wizkids gaming, but anyone Crimson Skies is welcomed!!!!

The sets I always enjoyed. Pre-painted, good to use in the FASA game,etc. But man they're expensive now :D

The WK looks interesting in the fact if I took the time to first figure it out, it would be a quick simple way to play.

Thanks for the hearty welcome! :D

@Jerba
Santas´s Holiday Flyer has a 458 points value, instead of the normal collector´s number it´s written "Demo" and the captain is named Santa "St. Nick" Claus.

The marquee set I have heard of was only available for crimson skies tournament winners. The special price was a large framed picture of lorelei with a lipstick kiss on it and her stockings. ;) I bought one on E-Bay 6 oder 7 years ago, but the seller didn´t send it. :cry:

@Grant
Oh, Iam totally into the whole CS franchise. I got all the cFASA rimson skies books and novels, the PC Game (running perfectly) and lots of other fun stuff. CS is one of my favourite universes! :mrgreen:

If the PC game works good, then you better join us all on our games :D (Although this SUnday I won't make it).

Lorelei? Which one was that? I ain't got the card set, but seen 'em for sale.

Ah yes! I do remember that. I haven't actually ever seen one. I'm not that interested in getting one, but the information is great! The Santa info is also appreciated. Does he have stats for gameplay too?

Lorelei is the beautiful female singer from the 55 pieces promotional cards set. :P She sings in the Empire State. If I figure out how to post pictures, I´ll put them into this forum. ;)

But you can take a look at some of the calendar girs here:

@Jerba
Yes, Santa also has game stats. Right now I am at my girlfriend´s home, but I can give you the stats tomorrow. There have been many Santy Claus on E-Bay a couple of years ago, because they were a free promotional figuren from Wizkids. The same is true for the crimson skies promotional figures demo set. Today you won´t get them for less than 50$. :(


@Grant
Right now I am waiting for my Microsoft Sidewinder 2 Force Feedback Joystick, but after I got used to it, perhaps we´ll meet in the Crimson Skies! :twisted:

Lol.

Check out the "Aerodrome" section for links. The Victory Girl site is interesting.

Not all...uh..female centric, but excellent nose art. More fitting in with Aircraft and CS than regular pinups.
