Well i reckon most of my stash is 'from ages past' (i.e. metal or oop) so i could have picked anything but i went with this classic terminator captain which i still think looks the business and fits the bill this month as well.





Haha darn you! I was considering that exact same model! I have two I've been meaning to paint up since I got them towards the beginning of the pandemic. One's back banner is broken too, just like yours.

@JoshinJapan - it’s from Matstation

I bought the set just for the mech really. Burned through quite a bit of resin getting it right, but it’s worth it!


*sigh*. It's a shame that I don't have a 3D printer. I'll have to see if I can find a printing service in Japan.

Now showing Stargrave crewpersons and some resin scenery for Frostgrave!

Painting Total as of 6/17/2021: 39 plus an iron golem and five spider nests and all the obstacles for Dreadball Xtreme and four trapdoors and a cauldron and some teleport disks!

Spikey Bits recently did an article about 3D printing and gave links to a good setup. I think the printer itself was $250, but with the fan, cleaning station, etc. it went up to about $500.

Thanks, it's an Iron Warrior base and then a layer of Akhelian Green (I don't know how it got that name, when it's clearly blue ) Contrast paint.

Some good entries in so far! Tossing my hat into the ring with a 1/72 Hurricane from Airfix. Not a bad tooling for a beginner set and I'll just be doing an out of the box build, nothing fancy.

Alright, finally settled on an entry for this month, after being inspired by all the retro minis on display here. Going to finally paint up some OoP Saurus Guard from the Slann Mage on Palanquin set:




I've had them for almost ten years, after painting the Slann up separately. I figure they're OoP, been sitting on my desk since high school, and from the hidden places of ancient jungles on the World that Was. I think that counts as ages past!

My painting log is full of snakes
Have any retro, vintage, or out of print models? Show them off here!

@JoshinJapan- I think your definition of “slap some paint on” differs greatly from mine. That looks amazing.

@Graphite- I hope you sounded some kind of fanfare as you destroyed My childhood ambitions

I also got some hobby time in tonight. Going to call The dogs done at this point. Still need to base them, but not going to much about with their colours any more


While Athena is a lovely model in its pose and poise and detail



This good boy is still my favourite


And then there is the most cyber-mastiffy of the lot. After 2 realistic puppers, I thought something a bit more cyberpunk to go with the Kodiak from last month was appropriate.

Okay, I'm in

I've had this guy since '95 or '96. He only got a proper-sized stand and a staff a few years ago. Might as well finally paint him.



I don't expect to win, given the competition. But it'll be fun to compete.

Thanks! It was either him, my pointing Termagant, or stripping & repainting my last remaining Zoat.

I started the Weirdboy tonight and remembered why I never painted him in all these years; I have no bloody idea what color scheme to use. I'm leaning towards yellow with red and blue accents like a lot of guys in my old Freebooters book.

In my head weird boys have always been very shamanistic; lots of natural materials like skins, furs, feathers, skulls, etc. Probably comes from Ol’ Zogwort being a Snakebite.

I'm thinking about entering, but the model that is metal and plastic currently has a very light and incomplete coat of primer that's flaking in a ton of places. I also just drilled out the gun barrel so the primer on the tip all came off too. Should I paint as is, attempt to clean and reprime, or reprime over as is?

Can you hit it with a toothbrush to flake off anything actually Loose?
After that is the current primer is Thin just reprime over the top I would say

So I'm trying to get some paint on this (weird) boy...



He looks kinda goth at this stage.

Now I'm trying some of the fabric colors...



Fingers crossed I don't screw this up by the end...

Here's my proof pic, finally. An Eldar Vyper which is 'from ages past' because it's
- an Eldar vehicle, duh
- possibly the oldest plastic kit in the entire GW catalogue?!
- ... which I bought when it came out ~1998, and left half-painted in an Alaitoc scheme for over 20 years :p
I've greenstuffed some gnarly vines & slapped on some crackle texture paint to make it look even more ancient. Going for an off-white/light brown paint scheme, I think.

I'm going to put forward the conversion I finished sticking together a couple of days ago of an old, fat Ghoul Abhorrant Archregent who has spent centuries looking after his people. He thinks he is a fat, jolly old king who cares for his kingdom and that he is waving around a shiny golden sceptre... poor fool...
