Drazhar and the Chaos trio look to be complete. The trident on the right is from the original Lelith Hesperax model, the whip and man-catcher by it are possibly from the Gorkamorka slaver/runtherd, the fanned blades are for a Datl Eldar Wych's shoulder.

Drazhar, looks right from the partial letter on the tab, but I'm not familiar with DE units. Thanks for the help! Not sure what I'll do with him. I'm looking up more info about him and see if I have the complete model there or not (are his arms in the bits?)


He looks to be complete -

Can you confirm that they are all there, or am I missing a small bit on one or more?

If you know what something is called your best bet would be to have a look at Stuff of Legends and check the parts against the original catalogue.


Thanks. His arms and backpack are indeed among the bits. There's actually a second left arm interestingly enough. And yes, that would be a good idea. I spend so much time pouring through the old catalogs, I can't believe I didn't think about that myself.

Thanks! Looking up the Lelith model has led me to believe that you are correct about the trident, and the blades seem to belong to her as well along with the loose leg. It seems the only part of her I don't have is her body. xD Haven't found anything confirming the whip and claw yet though.
Edit: Which is a shame really. If I had both Drazhar and Lelith I'd probably consider making a DE Kill Team to see if I like playing DE at all.

Alright, so I've spent some time searching google for a WFB Ork boss model named Grim since that's all I can make out from the tab and I've found nothing on him. I did find a lot of cool conversions made to look like Ork bosses from the various WH40k games though, including a couple particularly nice copies of the Ork boss from DoW.

Anyone have any idea what the pennant pole above the trident is from? It looks like the base is a wolf or dragon head. Any more info on the big Ork with goblin on his shoulder would be great too, especially his complete name.

Grumlok and Gazbag. Limited edition for Warhammer Online. The small blades above the ork pistol may go to him.

Thanks! No wonder I was having trouble finding him. I was looking for a "Grim" something. As for the blades, that's possible. There are a couple blades and a spike/blade still attached to his axe by sprue, so it wouldn't surprise me if he had more. Is that banner pole his as well maybe? Now that I have his name I'll look around again.

I found a listing on ebay that shows an Ork Runtherds/Slaveminders with one having the same grabber and whip. Good job!

Alright, I've been getting new bits in over the past month and I need some help figuring out what some of the more obscure bits are and the origin kits for them all. Obviously I know a Heavy Flamer, a Plasma Gun, and Boltguns when I see them, but for the sake of easiness, assume I know nothing about any of these and tell me what you know so I can try to get the full picture without listing each part. Thanks a bunch to all who try to help.

A HK missile launcher boxes top left, found in all IG tank boxes.

Center top is Rhino up armour parts, no idea top right.


Then B Inferno cannon? Mix of heavy flamer and vehicle mounted pintel bolters. C Search light parts, smoke launchers, D actual HK Missile boddies. The white metal sprue next to the HK missile is ths control sprue for a Grot Kannon. I don't know if that was reused in other kits bit that's where I got mine.

E glue on headlights and mini smoke launchers for a Rhino

F is the multi part join for the HK missile boxes. The round bits are the front of the searchlights. The rectangle boxes are the exhaust vents for the HK missile launcher boxes. And a new HK missile body.

The square is a pallet for ammo from a 3rd edition terrain set (all of these are Rogue Trader-3rd edition era).

Metal plasma and multimelta tips are from the old Demolisher tank.

Center items (near A) are actually Rhino hull parts from the RT-3rd edition rhino. The rectangle with rivets is from a Chimera, a part to support a baslisk platform.

Thanks a bunch you two. I would not in a million years have guessed those cone shaped pieces with spiky bits were searchlights. I was trying to decide which RT Eldar Wraiths legs they fell off of.

About those Grot Kannon controls... I wonder if those go to the old Griffon tank. I did get one from the same person as those pieces and one crewman seems to be reaching for a lever on the side of the mortar that I can't find. They were based separately, so when I put them on it doesn't quite fit anyway and I just chalked it up to bad positioning due to the height difference added by the standard base.

I've never owned a Chimera before so I don't have any proper experience to compare it to, surprising for someone with intent to play IG I know, but you may be right about that one darker heavy flamer looking piece being an Inferno Cannon. There are a ton of parts I didn't picture because I know what they are, including all six lasgun mounts for a Chimera APC. I was thinking of using them to create a custom Aegis Defense Line wall with a bunker and gun hardpoints. Maybe I'll throw in the Inferno Cannon in a position to cover the approach or an entry point on the outside. Or carve a small turret for it out of foam, cover it in extra armor bits, and make a proper turret hardpoint out of it. That's probably what will end up happening to the Plasma and Multi-melta, though those usually come in pairs when mounted on tanks, don't they?

Yes they should. Dunno what happened to your extras. They are useful for other kitbash projects and may have been used elsewhere.


1 is an example of the search lights. 2 is the pintel bolters but a bad example as I stuck 2 together to make a storm bolter. Originally they fit into the holes in the top of the hatch covers, 3 is the small smoke launchers from the Rino kit, 4 is the IG tank smoke launcher, which may have come off my Chimera.

The metal Kanon controls can be from the Griffon, they are the elevation and windage on the cannon and saves having to make a new sculpt for the same use.


The pink is the new searchlight, I've only seen it on Dreadnought vehicles, maybe SM vehicles but I've only bought a Land Raider and Land Speeders semi-recently. Top pink is lens, bottom pink is the stand/back.

Alright, thanks for that information. The Griffon is unpainted and in need of some... restoration work anyway. Mostly just a complete realignment of the tread system to fit snuggly, but it has a couple other areas I'd like to touch up as well. I'll try to find out the proper assembly for the cannon before I get to it.

So I recently discovered the app BattleScribe and am trying to point out my armies on it, but I have come to the personally startling revelation that I actually don't know how to tell the difference between SM officers by appearance. Obviously I can make out basic things such as weapons held and terminator armor, but I can't tell if I'm looking at a Captain, Lieutenant, Sergeant, etc. I also am not clear on the specifics of Dreadnaught variants after noticing some unknown ones under Heavy Support. So I turn you all here to help. Please let me know what exactly these models are, especially on the off chance one or more are named characters. Thanks.

Alright, the left and right dreadnoughts are both "Standard", the right one though is the old metal version (must weigh a ton!). The middle dread is a Venerable dreadnought.

The characters are as follows.
Top row from left to right...
1. Hard to tell due to the thick layer of primer. Could be a terminator chaplain.
2. Terminator captain
3. Pretty sure this guy was billed as a veteran sergeant. Bolter and Powerfist, you could use him as anything really.
4. A limited edition standard bearer, but I don't remember where or what from.
5. Old version of Ultramarines Chief Librarian Tigurius

Bottom row left to right...
1. Captain.
2. Crimson Fists captain Cortez.

Thanks a bunch! I'm very surprised there was not just one, but two named models in there as well as a LE model. There's actually a second of the standard bearer, but he's bare metal so I figured he'd be harder to tell. What would the two standard bearers go as in BattleScribe since that isn't an option I see. I know the Primaris Ancient holds the standard for them so would they be Company Ancients? I did correctly suspect the Captains, so that's restored some of my faith in myself, but I wasn't sure with BattleScribe having Lieutenants as well. There were also two of each of the Captains and I'm not quite sure what to do with multiple HQ models. Ah well, I'm sure they'll be useful for separate detachments or something. As a main CSM and IG player, I never looked too hard into how SM were set up way back in 5th, so I certainly don't know how they do it now in 9th.

I believe you are right about the Veteran Sergeant too. I looked up Veteran Sergeant on google images and I found a picture of a squad labeled Space Marine Veterans and one looks almost exactly like him, but a newer sculpting with more detail and a modern looking boltgun.

Oddly, though I did confirm that model is Captain Cortez of the Crimson Fists, BattleScribe doesn't have a listing for him. Did he die and get removed at some point?

As for the Dreads, that's what I believed, so that's good. However, I thought the Venerable Dread's left arm was called a Dreadnought Power Fist, but BattleScribe doesn't have that as an option either. Were they dropped at some point? And yes, that metal guy is a solid hunk of Citadel alloy and is quite hefty. Pretty sure he'd break a foot if dropped instead of breaking himself. Or put a dent in any non-ceramite flooring.

Bare metal/resin/plastic isn't that hard to tell unless under really bright light. It's also useful to help identify conversions and miscellaneous bits.

I don't know anything about battlescribe so I can't say for certain. But company ancient is your best bet. Maybe chapter ancient too?

I don't know if you can upgrade Lieutenants to have terminator armour, but power armoured LTs. can pretty much pull double duty as sergeants or captains, etc depending on loadout. Space marine models are versatile like that.

Dreadnought power fist got changed to dreadnought close combat weapon.

I've heard tales of the old metal thunderhawks chipping tiles and denting floorboards when dropped. So you're foot's not going to stand a chance.

Alright, so it's just a Dread CC now. That's good to know. I don't see Chapter Ancient as an option, so it has to be Company Ancient. Thanks again.

Lieutenants are going to be either really new or really old. I’m not sure there was officially more than the one RT model before they brought the rank back in 8th.
Spoiler:



Everyone else is going to be a captain or a sarge (with the odd named character in there)

Old metal dreads are part of the table-side justice system known as the "Dreadsock” where you take him, put him in a sock, and beat cheaters to death with it. Or so the legends tell.

And standard bearers go by Ancient these days. I think the only Chapter Ancient was the one that came in the UM HG box with Calgar. The others would be Company Ancients.

That's very good to know, thanks. The lack of the general existence of Lieutenants during the time period I played and the name change to Ancients after is probably why I didn't remember either of them existing.

I like the sound of the "Dreadsock" system. Considering that, I have to ask if bases are still relevant to the actual gameplay in 9th or if I can leave him without and still use him. Would hate to break a base when beating a cheater, ya know? A Dread sized base can get fairly expensive and time consuming when all is said and done and he's actually pretty stable on his own.

As an aside, do you recommend going through the trouble of stripping the partial blue paint he has on before priming and repainting? I know I really should, but he would take a lot of simple green or nail polish remover to get full coverage for the soaking... And they can both strip the glue depending on the type used, so I'd have the hassle of putting him back together to boot. Maybe a good scrubbing with nail polish remover might work instead? Could be quicker and less likely to deconstruct him.

If the npr contains acetone, it will also debond superglue, so bear that in mind and be careful of how much you apply.

A q-tip dipped in it and selectively applied also strips paint. It will just take a bit longer, but the rubbing will also help move the paint.

I'm OVER 50 (and so far over everyone's BS, too).

Thanks, I bought some with acetone specifically for stripping metal models, but I do have more without. Good to know it's the acetone that removes the glue so I can use the acetone free one when I don't want to.

Yup, that's it! The seller obviously didn't quite know what all they had. The Griffon came with it's crew thankfully, even if almost the entire tank was assembled incorrectly and without clipping nibs. The seller also had an assassin bundle of three that I didn't get which had the Eversor Assassin 1, apparently missing his backpack. I wanted it as well since it had the old Combi-weapon Assassin, but didn't have the money at the time and it sold. I actually got both halves of another set that was split between two of their listings. They had a bundle of old Catachan and a bundle of old Cadians. The Catachan had a Lascannon crew, but the Lascannon was with the Cadians.



Automatically Appended Next Post:
I feel kinda bad for the person who bought the Assassins. Probably didn't realize until they arrived that the Eversor was incomplete since the listing didn't mention it and there was no picture from the back of the models.
