Accidentally bought a copy of 2nd Ed box set a few months back, in it were these guys:



Now repainted as Deathwatch - first proper Citadel minis I've painted since the '90s, quite pleased with the results!

Nice. The previous owner didn't do too bad either - very 2nd edition, as if right out of the painting instructions from the box!

I was just thinking about it; this would be a great monthly painting challenge for the board. Just a basic "buy the worst thing you can find on eBay and save it" challenge.

that actually does sound really cool!

although "buy the worst thing you can find on ebay"...oh boy, there's some real doozies on there...I've seen things that would probably take at least the full month just to strip

Well, I really meant "a previously painted or assembled" model, but...you know what I mean! Honestly it could just be a model you've already painted but have stripped down to repaint, etc.

No, it’s a shadow sword kit from the very early 90s, back when armorcast had the license. The image you posted is the forgeworld kit, which was much more detailed (and valuable)

Yep, though the old Shadow Sword was built on the same resin chassis - it had a plug and play style center right?

Well haven't finished the base yet (such as it is) but here's another rescue for the shelter.

Picked them up in this sad old state.

And stripped them off.

Not too bad of a job, I've seen much worse. A case of neglect more than over enthusiasm.

So I got to cleaning and assembling and painting and...

Pretty happy with this fella. Nice mini with plenty of character, can't go wrong really. That other guy though... What is that they say about polishing a turd?
