Those are awesome looking old models. Nice paintjob as well. What are the third and fourth things from the top? I recognize a lot of the old tyranid models but I've never seen those before.

Love seeing those old rogue trader beakies. I almost managed to get my hands on an unopened box of them for around $50.00 but some scalper outbid me in the last second of the sale. Saw it relisted later for almost $300.00. I think I was most offended that he didn't even want to open them up and put them together...


That's rude, rest assured that my guys still get on the table

I have more of them now, as those in the photo are just the ones that hadn't fallen apart in their almost 30 year storage.

If you ever play with "that guy" remember this :
"there may be times when you are not sure exactly how to resolve a situation that has come up during play. When this happens, have a quick chat with your opponent and apply the solution that makes the most sense to both of you (or seems the most fun!), If no single solution presents itself, you and your opponent should roll off, and whoever rolls the highest gets to choose what happens."

Beautiful Blood Angels and Tyranids. Love seeing the old Terminators, Tyranid Warriors and Armorcast beasties.

My high elf blood bowl team;



Lots of black eyes, bloody noses and skinned knuckles in there.

Really like those Tyranids. Can't beat the gopher teeth warriors for a real nostalgia hit.

Those tyrants were new around the time I got started and to this day I prefer them to the current model in terms of design.

Thanks! Those things are Armorcast (pre-Forgeworld) Tyranids monsters. Basically up-scalled Epic models to fit in 40k back in 2nd edition

First one is a Malefactor that I converted (I made the mouth up front) to be used as an Haruspex.

The duo are the old Exocrine, used as-is

I also got the Haruspex (the Armorcast one, no link to the newest one really, just re-used name) that I modified a bit and will be a Tyrannofex with Rupture Cannon. But still unpainted for now (those are simpler models and very quick to do, so whenever I feel like painting it it'll be done in the same day!).

Fantasy armies - Retired (Tomb Kings, Vampires, Empire, Chaos Warriors/Daemons, Dark Elves)

Tyranids army - Ever evolving, but about 10k pts
Custodes - 3,500pts (Fully painted yay!)
Thousand Sons - 4,000 pts
Eldar - 3,000pts

I really would not have guessed that the mouth on that creature wasn't an official part of the model. That's impressive work.

Was looking for my sniper scout torsos that I have misplaced. Found my old Wolf Scout that I never painted. Him and a couple of metal snipers were purchased on 2004.


With him is an old Gene Stealer Hybrid. I don't know where he is from. His single arm had a Marine shoulder pad on until it fell off. He used to have a Plasma Gun that I gave to my Legion of the Damned.

Those nids Whaaaa!! They looked like that?
Man, so many cool old stuff here, I don't know about that elf fellow, but love those dorfs for sure!

I can appreciate the old models and the oldschool style
Even though do not have nostalgia because only found out about warhammer after reading MalusDarkblade in 2009, and year later played Dawn of War I on friends comp and bough my first miniature in about 2010.

But I got few of,,, I hope GW 's, old models from a good friend! I know Ungrim is out of print for sure.
I do not know about the plastic dwarfs warriors and crossbow guys, they seem old, but I don't know where they are from.

Also, the dwarf with the keg mug, keg my conversion, but the model I know is from GW, but don't know how old it is or if it is in print or not.

Old paintjob! mostly with that professional level wood stain finish
Sorry for poor pictures, will take better ones when launch my KARAK GARAZ_NGOL project.

Glad to participate

Dwarves? OK


One of these minis was painted a couple of decades after the others, can you guess which?

This was a try at Celtic freehand. Turned out OK.

But that angle doesn’t show off the boar on his helmet. Because Oldhammer, that’s why.


I know I’ve got one or two more kicking around, and a handful that still need paint.

So I finished painting those last 3 terminators. And put chapter markings on all of the battle brothers (I forgot to pull the HQs from the shelf when doing the project)



4 squads and some HQs. And about 20lbs of metal. (ok, slight exaggeration, but I did worry about breaking the little wooden tray I use to drag stuff around for photoshoots)

Nice, Nevalon! Both the dwarves and those marines. Did the tray start to buckle in the middle?

Here's another bit of pewter, an icon bearer of Slaanesh. In my ignorance as a child I painted him up to be a plague marine... oh what a simple summer child I was.

The last one was a model I painted as a kid and stripped and repainted after getting back into the hobby. The Orc Shaman is my favourite by far.

I love that Shaman mini! And it makes me happy to see that Redemptionist Priest; I have the exact same model, posted a few pages back. I redid I think three of my old Redemptionists for a campaign I was playing over the summer.

I think what this thread is proving is that Jes Goodwin was lightyears ahead of his time.

Sweet box:


With perhaps the worst 'Eavy metal paintjob of all time on the boxart:


You are legally obliged to paint all 80s Eldar with orange Cocaine-era David Bowie hair:


My favourite guardian sculpts:


The very old Throt the Unclean model was great, and looked really '3d' in a time of very flat minis:



Skaven were great from day 1:


Severly overpainted Genestealer Ork Hybrids (!?). They are on Ebay at the moment if anyone is interested


Thanks for the trip down memory lane

That’s some classic Pewter and Plastic! Will you be chopping these guys up darkkt? Either way they are begging for more paint

Let’s see if we can’t revive the thread with some recently finished classic 2nd Ed Orks;

And why not some High Elves too

Yup 100% the Space Crusade Chaos Marine. He's a line trooper or maybe a heavy weapon trooper, depending on what weapon you gave him, the Commander had more elaborate armour.
