What a clickbait starting the advent with cat content... Great to see the Zoat again and as gobert said, those gems are just marvelous!

Thank you!

Moving from a more recent model to the first one I posted here on Dakka back in 2014. Fire!

Spoiler:


The Large Fire Elemental from Reaper's BONES line. Included in the first Kickstarter, and one of the minis that drew me in. Didn't really go huge on that one. Just a couple extras, like Cthuhu, the mini that clinched the pledge. He still isn't painted. After KS 1, I decided it would be better to wait and pick and choose the four or five minis I really wanted rather than wind up with a bucket of minis I don't want. Value be damned. I did eventually track down all four elements and painted the set.



Cool takes on the traditional elementals, fun playing with the translucency.


Thanks for looking!

Nice work. Elementals hold a special place in my heart. They are the first minis I used washes/drybrushing on so many years ago. You did a great job on those.

That matte black on the Zoat still astounds me. Looks chalky but also obviously isn't, not sure I have the vocabulary to describe it and how much I love it.

7 year old fire is great stuff too!

Appreciated, everyone.

I have the Nolzur's set of large elementals to paint at some point. Skipped the lords. Would love to have a full set of Rackham's elementals, but only have fire and earth. Unpainted. Have done both for friends in the past, plus darkness, but not my own. Weird.

A comment is never late, zahnib. It arrives precisely when it means to. Or something along those lines.

Spoiler:
For the Emperor. Still probably my favorite Primaris model. Also still the only one I have painted in this scheme.

Thanks, Cap'n.

Today we'll feature one of my favorite comic characters. Took some time today to take pics of a bunch of older stuff. Some of it sure looked better back in the day. Oh, well.

Spoiler:



Punisher from Knight Models and from CMON'S Marvel United. Both more recent, and it is nice to have a couple Frank minis on the shelf.

Love both Punishers, although the Chibli (?) style one takes the win. Was amazed when I saw it first here and still am. And good to see that Knight gave Frank some real guns and not the NERF variant

Thanks, Viterbi. Thankfully, no NERF. Unthankfulky, a miscast arm that required repair. Thankfully, turned out OK in the end.

Spoiler:




Today we have the first Kingdom Death mini I ever painted. The pin-up Twilight Knight from the Experiment of Death. This was a PVC trial for Poots that included this mini and the infamous Wet Nurse. And it wasn't cheap. But I wanted a Wet Nurse, and that was the cheapest way to get it. Still haven't painted it. But it's primed! I also haven't painted the other two I bought when Poots decided against PVC and liquidated the sets at half price. Who doesn't love a bargain? Even in PVC, this is not a bad mini. Except that sword. Little bendy. New camera really shows how my old varnishes would sometimes not play nice together. IRL, not super noticeable. Painted in 2014.

Oops, forgot to thank gobert. Keeping it rolling. This one's for you.

Something a bit older, and a bit more obscure.

Spoiler:



Minis from Foundry's range of Revenant Elves. Odd little things, but pretty cool sculpts. Went with their puff n' slash Orcs and nubile nymphs. Sort of expensive at the time, around 15 for a pack of two. Still have a few unpainted, as well as the entire nymph range. One day. These date from before 2003, as that is when they were uploaded to CMON, where I went by Lord Humongous. A friend with a sense of humor set up the account.

There is something distinguishably tasty in your style. Whenever I come along one of your models in the gallery, I immediately know it's one of yours before looking at the author.

No problem, gobert. I do want I can.

That's very kind of you to say, Ezki. Thank you.

Thanos for Heroclix. Used to play a lot of clix. Wizkids had it's hooks into me deep. Even got into doing a few customs/swaps. This is the Heroscape Thanos mini on the original Thanos clix base from the very first set. Being a Thanos fan, I was stoked to pull him in my first purchase.



And since this version had no gems on the glove, I had to sculpt them myself.

I'm a little late to the party again, but I really like that Space marine lieutenant from day 3. And also Thanos. He's my my favorite MCU character. (I've worked in food service for 15 years and have come to the same conclusions about humanity and it's deserved fate ) You did a great job with the gems on the glove both sculpting and painting (and potentially the little "Fine, I'll do it myself." reference you snuck in there at the end).

Thanks, brushcommando. Not an intentional reference, but it works. I'll take it.

Let's take a trip.

Spoiler:

I was introduced to Games Workshop and Warhammer in 6th grade. That was a long time ago. Rogue Trader was the current edition and I almost immediately fell for the Eldar. The look of the regular troops, as well as the Harlequins (especially Harlequins) grabbed me, and my first pack of Citadel minis was Eldar. However, one of the other players had already made a force of Eldar, also Harlequins, and you know how kids can be. "You need to play something else, someone else is using those already." That sort of thing. Sigh. So I played Dark Angels and Chaos with my Marine models. Not too long after I started playing, White Dwarf 124 was released, with the preliminary drawings for what would be the Aspect Warriors. Mind blown. Then, a few short months later, White Dwarf 127 came out with the army list that would serve as the basis for every one that came after, and man, I wanted some of that action. Aspects, the Avatar, Exarchs. Just awesome. But, Eldar were still someone else's army. Time went by. The main Eldar player fell in love with the Space Wolf list released shortly after because it was stronger than anything else. This guy was sort of a chump. So, at the tail end of RT, I bought my first Harlequins. Hallelujah. I took a short break from playing for a while, but came back not long into 2nd Editon's life-cycle. It was then that I would realize the dream of a Craftworld Eldar army. And they have been number 1 love ever since. Some Harlequins will be making an appearance later, but here's the leaders of my Craftworld force. It's ok to do things backwards. One Farseer hasn't even had his base updated to a brown rim yet. These guys were painted pre-2000. Also including a couple squads I painted decades later and posted here previously.

Aw man. I love the old aspect warriors. Especially those fire dragons. They have a charm the new models lack somehow. Great paintjobs across the board. Especially on that old farseer.

I really like your take on the aspect's color schemes, I'm really digging the warp spider's color tones and the contrast between the dragon's armor and helmets is a great visual.

Those old Eldar sculpts had style even back then, especially the Warp spiders who had enough style that it endures to this day lol. (good looking models but GW does need to give them a new kit)

Do you have any of the RT personalities/characters? Like the legendary Kelos Longfingers?

The old Eldar are amazingly classic. Great work. For being stupily old, they hold up incredibly well, and you paintjob is a great asset to that.

Fingers crossed the new rumors pan out to cool stuff next year. I suspect there will be some fresh plastic knife ears on my own paintbench. And i should probably dust off some of the old RT lead to join them, some of whom are old enough to have names, and not just descriptions.

Thanks, guys.

New Eldar would pose quite the conundrum. I don't play anymore, and have no desire to replace the army I have. However, Eldar. If there's a new Maugan Ra, it's probably going in the collection, for example. Just going to have to cross that shiny, new, plastic bridge when I come to it.

gobert, you aren't kidding. Time and experience and all that.

I do have a few older minis left, but very few of the original lineup. Most of the ones I still have are the metal/plastic hybrids. I had a lot of the originals, but over the years there have been purges, and they didn't make the cut. No shuriken catapults with the vanes sticking around here, I guess. Took a pic of what is left. The four up front are the oldest, I think. Have the Ghost Warrior in there with them. Guy with the sword was in my first pack of 40K minis. He's here to stay. Maybe get painted again one day.



Man, I sure could be a godawfully lazy painter at times. Good thing there isn't a record of my sprayed black/drybrushed silver (and that's it) generic Marines.

A selection of my favorite Harlequins. These have been retouched over the years. Also small modifications made like the Kiss for the Great Harlequin and the power blades for the Solitaire when they became an option in the 3rd edition Citadel Journal list. Had many fun times playing these guys.

Nice. I never felt that I had the skills to do the murder clowns justice. I made it part way into RTB06 before loosing interest. While the old sculpts are fun, I have to give props to the new plastics for motion. Old metals were flat by necessity.

Again with the great paint on classic metal. Well done.

I love me some RT-era Eldar. They were my first 40K army way back when, and I still have pretty much all of them, and I suspect they'll still be in their case when I shuffle off.

youwashock,

As you know, I had the same issue and ended up having to play the Imperial Guard in Rogue Trader and Second Edition because someone else wanted to play Eldar. Which over the next seven years he never painted them, and played them just glued to their bases.

Thank you, thank you.

That chaps my hide just hearing about it, Cap'n.

Spoiler:




Eldar, again. This is Sciutan Bal, chosen champion of Sciuryuden Craftworld. Original version on the right, updated version from years later on the left. In today's game, he would most likely be an Autarch, but back in 2nd Edition all we had was Exarchs to work with. And they were great. You could tool them up for anything. This guy was born from a mix of factors. The absence of a Warp Spider Phoenix Lord, my fondness of "found object of power" stories like Witchblade and my love for anime like Fist of the North Star and G Gundam all contributed. The idea is that he was one of those Exarchs that gets stuck moving from one Aspect to the next, adding to his martial repertoire. While a Warp Spider, he suffered one of those nifty jump mishaps, but instead of ending up a snack in the warp, he winds up in a lost chamber somewhere on the planet he was fighting on. In this chamber he finds the gauntlet (later, gauntlets) and returns to the battle all juiced up and ready to take names. In 2nd edition, he was an Exarch armed with a brightlance, power sword, and power fist to represent the various abilities the gauntlet granted. Also a jump generator and a displacer field, plus the fast shot and extra HTH attack warrior powers. I only played him a couple of times, since it was a little OP. Like most of my stuff, it was mainly fluff motivated.
