Current ork kommando model, but obviously from back when they still cast them in metal.

When you're struck by an eel, whose sharp teeth you can feel... that's a moray!

When your food, if you please, has white sauce with some cheese... that's a Mornay!

When two patterns appear, and their waves interfere... that's a moiré!

Looks like a generic daemon Prince from a few years back.

Please excuse any spelling errors. I use a tablet frequently and software keyboards are a pain!

Not even a few years back, its the CSM build of the current plastic Daemon Prince

Yeah, pretty sure within the variable range of "a few years back" that guy was still being made in metal.

Then again, I'm getting older than I realize sometimes and occasionally I forget what I'm thinking of as the events of "a few years back" actually happened roughly a decade ago.

Mine seem a bit different to the other variants which I can find as most have tails and wings?
I have a few of these but can’t quite fully identify them?

I say that and then I just found this little lot (including the tails!)

Lol, yeah and some other bits to boot! The plastic Demon Prince model has a bunch of options so it can be better fitted to the Chaos god whom it serves. Also to give them SOME variety at least.

The metal/finecrap CSM version does look similar, but has fewer options, as in none.

Has the sword and bolter arm

Yup. His idea of "options" was "Hey, kids! Wanna kitbash some things from one of our other (then) $50~ kits, like wings off a WFB dragon? Maybe also turn my sword into an axe by chopping up a Bloodthirster?"

At least here in the UK, back when things were metal, you could just order the wings or the axe that you needed, without having to sacrifice a whole kit.

Shame, it was a nice model, and the finecast version was ok...except where it needs "adjustments" and the plastic version does try to give you something similar, just looks plainer.

Yeah, unfortunately, if that period ever existed in the US, I missed out on it.

You could do it in the USA, too. USA had their own casting facility for metals.

Buying bits direct from GW mail-order trolls back in the day was cool.

I'm OVER 50 (and so far over everyone's BS, too).
Old enough to know better, young enough to not give a ****.

That is not dead which can eternal lie ...

Generic kitbashes - guy on the left (with the shield) has FW MKIV legs and the rest is from the GW Command Squad, and the other one's body is the really old Boarding Marine with the helmet-holding arm from the MKIV Command Set.
