I can't recall when this one came out. Was it part of the 3rd edition Seer Council? Anyway, another good old school addition.

A quick scan over at SoL shows him in the 2000 catalog, but not the 1999 one. So about that era.

Nice work on him.

You are both probably correct, it was one of the last figures added.

Another unit finally painted:

Warp Spiders


I had three of these fellows years ago and foolishly sold them on eBay after painting them up. Had to use eBay for find some more and after striping them have returned them to a painted state.

Nice Warp Spiders, Captain - and the Farseer was cool too.

Have you seen the not-a-Warp-Spider from Wargames Exclusives?

Dysartes,

I have seen them now.

Been doing just GW and FW models, still have more to paint.

Thank you for the comment.

Digging the old school Eldar. One of the first set of models I inherited was the old metal sculpts.

Looks good! Excited to see more!

Thanks ProcrastinatingPaintBrush,

Hope you still have those old models somewhere.

Now this is a unit of 10 Guardian Defenders, while the bulk of the models were painted years ago, I did give them some better highlights and changed some of the yellow to wraithbone.



They have a Support Weapon with swap-able weapons, but the Scatter Laser in this shot is not from the era when they were first painted (the Scatter Laser is a later version as I replaced all the originals in 3rd Edition).

Here is the recently painted Eldar Guardian Defenders squad.



Colours are pretty similar as the paint I used years ago is no longer available.

Thanks youwashock,

Yes, models from an era when chain mail was a perfectly acceptable part of advanced civilizations armour.

Dysartes wrote:The old school Guardians are looking good, Captain - do you have more of them to do?


Thanks Dysartes, I do have three old Guardian models left, but two are Storm Guardians whom I cut to make more Guardian Defenders (thinking of changing them back with Chainwords and Shuriken pistols once I am done all the other Aspects and Walker). The other is missing a head, but I have an idea on what I am going to do with it. In the meantime here is the original FarSeer I just repaired (note the Shuriken pistol instead of the pointing arm). I had converted this model with the original Avatar spear, but never liked the change and replaced it with this arm.

I like how nonchalant he looks firing the pistol. I am still rather fond of the original Farseer, but he is decidedly low-key.

Your plog is a blast from the past and reminds me that I just opened a box which hadn't seen the light of day for ten years...

All these Eldar were what I have! All metal! So I've got some photography ahead of me....

Got a old Dreadnought as yourself, Spirit Walker, and one of the tiny Spirit Warriors too, Assasin class I believe

Those Guardians looks sweet. I especially like the Eldar with the freaky haircut on the left rear.

Thanks Private Benjamin,

If you have some extra models (need a few to complete a unit), we might be able to do some trades.

Thanks oldravenman3025,

Yes, the old Eldar do have some strange models. Like the sideburns on the Eldar War Walker pilot I am painting are pretty wild.

For your viewing pleasure the first of my Phoenix Lords.

Good stuff Cap'n. The old Eldar models really hit the nostalgia button for me. Jes at his best. And you do them great service too!

Thanks youwashock,

I will see what I can do about an in-progress army shot. In the meantime I did six Striking Scorpions that I have added to those I painted a few years ago to make two units.



This first unit has an Exarch I converted to have a Scorpion's Claw vice the original Shuriken pistol.

Do it! I love your old retro photos, and the more army pics out there, the better.
