I love everything!!!, those old Jess Goodwin aspect warrior designs are the best.
And although I do not like the warwalker design (the legs look off), you make it look better.

Thanks Fifty, Tyranid Horde and CommissarKhaine,

I have decided not to highlight them further as there is a lot of bone white on the models already

Thanks Scythern and Dysartes,

I used to have that Avatar, but used him for parts as soon as they released the next model.

Thanks Cap'n Facebeard.

Thank you sjofels.

So one more addition, the third and final Rogue Trader War Walker. Your posts have spurred on yet more activity.



More of the blue effects from the sides.



Next I will get them in a group shot, and then some weapon swaps. After that I will show you the original weapons painted up and mounted on them.

The long painting war continues...

Thank you Dysartes, Nevelon, CommissarKhaine, youwashock and Briancj for the comments.

Here is the group shot with Shuriken Cannons.



Here they are with three alternate weapons - Bright Lances and Star Cannon (including a Rogue Trader weapon Heavy Plasma Gun serving as the Star Cannon).





Next up I will put in the Rogue Trader Weapons for nostalgic purposes.

Nice squadron, and I like those old weapons; I think I preffered their esthetic to the newer ones.

I do enjoy a good War Walker squadron, and those classic models are really taking me back to when I first got interested in 40K, which is always a fun nostalgia trip. Good job sir.

Thank you CommissarKhaine, I agree the newer weapons fit better with similar models of 2nd Edition and it is the new ones I will be fielding with my gaming group so there is no confusion on weapon load outs.

Well you guys asked for it. I have delivered. I painted up all the original Rogue Trader weapons. Here they are on the three Walkers for your viewing pleasure.

Thanks amazingturtles, youwashock and CommissarKhaine,

Another addition, not quite as old, but a time when Eldar and other folks rode into battle rather than hunching over their bikes like models do today.




I had five Jet Bikes and only one of them had a Canon, so I picked up a partial painted one and stripped it down. Now painted to match my other five...was a challenge as the paints from 20 years ago have changed.

I'll take some group shots as I seal this one and eliminate the silvering around the sword transfer.

So with the completion of that sixth Jetbike here are the two squads I can now field.


Replaced the photo.

The newly painted Jetbike is a little darker than the others.

Second group.

Photo turned out far better for these three.

I like those jet bikes - good balance between "crisp" and "blended" painting styles in my opinion.

Liking the jetbikes, especially when you've painted up the displays, very cool. All of my jetbikes are the old style with bits from Dire Avengers to "modernise" them. Part of me wishes that I'd kept them stock.

What do you use to seal your models on another note?

Makes me want to grab mine and fly them around making wooshing and shooting noises. They look really good. Many fond memories.

I use Testors Matt for sealing, but when I have a transfer I add a layer of GW 'Ardcoat to reduce the 'silvering'.

Absolutely loving it. Your War Walkers are my favourite. I've been through three iterations of War Walkers and can't find one I like. I just suck with the damn metal ones.

I need to find a suitable way to create a plastic/metal hybrid of the original War Walker. They're like some kind of curse for me...

If I could get my hands on a RT Avatar, I'd be tempted to build an Eldar army similar to the Captain's, just to see people's reactions when I pulled him out of the case.

I mean, ideally he'd have an Epic Avatar on the base as a Mini Me, but...


So, guess what I just won on eBay?

I guess I have a new project for the new year...

Thanks Elbows and Dysartes.

Very happy today as my Asurmen came in second in the highly contested 40K Single Model category at the GW store.



Not a Golden Daemon competition, but still showing that old school is still the best school as there were loads of new models on display. Although it was a metal Canoness that took the top spot.
