No other monster embodies Oldhammer more than the glorious Fimir. Hobgoblins run close, though.
Why? Well, they disappeared. Fimir got erased from the background. Gone. No more one eyed lizardmen. They are proper old school. Why? Well they have a rather disturbing way of replicating, which made them a marketing disaster. Plus, due to a mixup they proved to be a WFB points vs value disaster as well.
There is a fantastic write up of their origins and eventual extinction here
An interesting piece of GW history for sure. Here they are in all their fog covered glory! I love the idea of the varying tails.
For an ugly monster they get a lot of sympathy out there. Lacking major GW support - probably a good thing at this point - hundreds of Fimir scholars helped them survive and thrive. They had some more recent guest appearances here and there.
I never had the chance to put a proper Fimir into one of our games. One will have a guest appearance as a disected specimen soon, though.
What do you think of the Fimir?
