If you were like me, and had the impression that grey horses were long gone, I've got good news for you.

Last week I checked for them on www.EagleGames.net, and like always they were out. But then I noticed the 'Boxed Miniatures' section under Product Catalog, and found this item:

Horses: EGL103
List Price: $14.99
Our Price: $9.99
Sale Price: $2.99
You Save $12.00!

I figured they had to be the same horses that you can only buy in black and brown under the NiE listings, and decided to buy a box to test that theory. They just arrived today, and bingo - same horses. 1 sprue each of black, brown and grey. And you get all three for a penny less than if you ordered one sprue by itself.

Assuming I'm not the only guy that wanted some grey horses and thought they had become a rarity, I figured I'd better share this. Enjoy.

If you do buy those horses, you should take a look at the 'Ding and Dent' listings. They've got the computer game version of War! Age of Imperialism for 99 cents, the computer version of Puerto Rico for $2.99, etc. Might as well get the most out of the price you pay for postage.

Oops. I really thought there were people out there looking for these, but it appears it was just me after all. Sorry.

...not at all...thanks for bringing this to everyone's attention. As for me, I am looking for WHITE Horses (NiE), PURPLE MILITARY units (Sid Meier's Civ 2ndEd), and TWO (that's [2]) ORANGE sprues of "Conquest of the Empire II" units.

I also check fanatically on Eagle Games website, glad I'm not the only OCD gamer here.
