Some old minis. 40k and fantasy.

I just wanted to show off some of my old stuff.

First my 3rd edition 40k Tyranid army

 These guys are scrambling to be painted.
 A neat organ gun I got off ebay a while ago. Definitely an interesting paint scheme.
 One of my three goblobbers. It's a work in progress.
 I wish I could take the credit for these guys, but they must have been painted by the previous owner of my dwarf haul. I think they're really good and look very much in their time period. They were probably painted in the 80's as most of the collection looked unused in years.
 There's a ding on the standard-bearer's nose and they're a little dusty. Some dings here and there, but I think they've held up pretty well overall.
 I like the colors used a lot. Very vibrant. The horn guy's shirt really appeals to me.

Next I was just throwing all my 80's fantasy chaos stuff into a group to see what sort of warband I could fit together. I suppose this is enough to work but it needs some more chaos dwarfs and beastmen!

 This guy on the horse and the juggernaut guy were both painted by the guy I bought them from in Las Vegas. I think they're not too bad.
The chaos ogre on the right's paintjob is very dinged up. Just about every edge and corner the paint is worn off and his eyes are an odd red that doesn't stand out very well. I'd like to repaint him but I'd rather not strip playable paintjobs when I still have so much work to do.

Hope you enjoyed looking!

  1. Very cool!

    I'm digging the paintjobs on those old dwarfs! Are you going to try and fit with that style when you paint the unpainted ones?
