A pair of Lieutenants. One with a bit more experience under his belt then the other...

RT: How many drops for you is this, lieutenant?
Prime: Thirty-eight. Simulated.
RT: How many combat drops?
Prime: Uh, two. Including this one.

Going by the Space Marine Painting Guide, that older guy is wearing a Captain's insignia on his shoulder. (I don't think Lieutenants ever had particular shoulder insignia, just the helmet and forearm flash.)

You are 100% correct. The mini and his helmet insignia are for a RT-era LT. But when painting him, I wanted to push my free hand skills, so put the Captains’s heraldry on his shoulder. Call it a brevet battlefield promotion, swapping shoulder pad’s with his former, now deceased, superior.

I've got a box of those. They were fun things when they first came out.

Kinda good timing with the new Death Guard plastics about to come out.

I kind of like monopose models like these with bland poses. Much better than 'action' monoposes; there are only so many ways you can just stand there, right!?

What I did with mine was remove and reposition their left hands at the wrist. This allowed me to mix up the silhouette of the models a little bit. I believe another popular conversion is to reverse the plague knife so it is being held upside down.

I was thinking of doing something to convert them, like even tack on a blight launcher from the new models but I'd feel bad hacking up these old models!

If we're flashing back, how about the rules for the 1991 40k gaming league:

Yes, you're reading that right. The only army allowed is Space Marines (and a restricted set of units, at that), with some Imperial guard and Squat allies if you like.

Of course! That was my next guess.




The 2nd Ed Biovore is the one Old Skool Tyranid model from 2nd Ed that I don't own. I always figured that they'd release newer ones that would be far superior, especially with the ancient concept art pieces that were floating around out there. Boy was I wrong...
