I know ts not friday yet, but I'm house sitting for my parents at the moment, and just found this box at the back of a cupboard in my old room!

sadly no miniatures inside

front of box::



back:
(note the dark angel in the bottom right, in black armour not white, or even green!)





I did however find a few other miniatures elsewhere:

metal Squat tech priest:



plastic squat:



metal space marine captain(?)



metal mk2(?) space marine:



...and my personal fav:
blood bowl referee!
(no actual bb players to be found anywhere tho!)



i think 13 year old me could paint better then 30 year old me

Over in this thread there was some talk about RT era assault marines, so I decided to grab a few off the shelf for this week’s FBF.

Well, now that it's acutally Friday, here is something GW does not sell anymore.

I have the minis at home.

Welcome to getting old. Every Sunday I listen to a reto-rewind show on the radio. I’m shocked and astounded but the “new” stuff they play sometimes. But it’s 2015; anything made in year starting in “19” is ancient history to some folks.

The Confrontation tech gangers are cool, but not as cool as the Squat tech priest. I still use one as the Enginseer for my IG.

Quite a collection of old stuff you have there bbb.

I have two main armies for WHFB, Chaos and Undead. But they are not the only ones cluttering up the shelf. I also picked up a number of DoW units and a small force of Wood Elves I intended to work up into a full army. Never really got them to a playable point, but some got paint. I think I have a dozen dryads in a box somewhere unpainted.

Waywatchers. These were the cool looking minis that drew me to the army.


Some glade guard. At one point they were the best light calvary in the game. Fast, flexible, and they hit pretty hard.


Warhawk riders. I had a thought of everything being on the wing or made of wood. Odd concept, might have worked.


High Five!


Every time I move this guy I expect him to shatter into a thousand pieces. Barring the base and the wings, he’s metal. Long, sinuous, poorly balanced metal. With tiny connection points.

I have owned nearly everything in this thread at some point. I have virtually nothing left though. I do have nearly 3000 points of 2nd ed guardsmen, most Catachans but also Ogryns, ratlings and various Commissars, Priests and Psykers.

Its a shame that 40K is no where near the game that it used to be.

(Why is is pictures always look fine on the camera, fine when I upload them, but blurry when I post them. Sigh)

Some Dogs of War for your Friday viewing pleasure. Somewhere in a box in the back of my paint bench there is the rest of the pikemen and dwarf slayer/pirates waiting for paint. Always waiting. Borgio the besieger and Ms. Belladonna saw a lot of use in my chaos a/o undead armies as a chaos hero/vampire and sorceress respectively. Don’t think I actually fielded the galloper gun. Fun collection of models though.

Miss Necromunda i really wish they would do a special edition of it with a rules update so it's not as fiddly as the old game.

Was talking in my local GW recently looking at newer Skaven models much better than the old ones i had in my early teens when i played WFB and they have plenty of possibilities for weapons and poses. Recall having a ton of these guys. They came in boxes that cost £5 at the time i think you got maybe 6 in a box. Same pose and you only glue a shield on if you want it there and that's all. If anything at least the model quality and options got better XD.

Canon Powershot S95. Learning to take better pictures is constantly on my things-to-do list. It doesn’t help that this was a
"Hey it’s Friday, I should grab a picture” rather then a formal photoshoot.

I think most of the armies at the time had the one box of mono-pose plastic to help fill out your army. I was lucky as an Undead player that our filler box was multi-part posable plastics. But most armies had a front row of metal, and then a block of the same guy filling up the ranks. Or for those units that were different enough that you couldn’t use the plastic, a wallet breaking wall of lead.

What, no Dark Millennium?

The Chaos codex was a truly great tome. The stories of the legions and primarchs, the 'eavy metal section that was rammed full of conversions, bonkers rules and then cultists thrown in because they felt like it. I'm feeling a bit sad that we'll never see its like again.

I still have 2 copies of the Assassins Codex, I used to have 3

Given that is was a WD giveaway I'm not sure how I managed to get multiple copies.
