Is there any way to pick up a set of the 1st edition Nazgul minis without buying an entire first edition game? Imo, they look better than the 2nd edition minis and would take up less space on the game board.

I'm not getting my hopes up that I can buy them directly from one of the publishers, so if anyone has a set for purchase or trade please send me a geek mail.

They sure are prettier, but they are much more prone to falling over, having a much higher center of gravity. I prefer the second edition ones for that reason.

Anyway, I think contacting the publisher is worth a try, as they usually have spare pieces for replacement for customers who lost/broke them and maybe they are willing to sell a set.

Unfortunately the publisher for the first edition no longer exists, so your only real hope is if someone will trade.

Having played with both the 1st and second ed Nazgul figures, the Second edition are much better due to their stability.

Ya the 1st ED are nice to look at but lose functionality constantly falling over ant then knocking other pieces around when they do. In large armies they become a pain in the ass..

Doesn't this become a non-issue when you glue nickels to the base?

Not only that, the 2nd Edition nazgul deprive the shadow player of the Mt. Gundabad frustration strategy where you place a lone nazgul in Mt. Gundabad, which causes the FPP to constantly knock it over; each time with growing frustration.

I hear that helps, but doesn't solve the problem.

If you still want the originals, your best bet is to trade Nazgul with someone who has the first edition. Do you know about the "Has Parts For Trade" and "Want Parts In Trade" lists?

First Edition Has Parts For Trade
First Edition Want Parts In Trade
Second Edition Has Parts For Trade
Second Edition Want Parts In Trade

This is DEFINITELY going to be incorporated into my strategy next game.
