Pretty sweet! I don't have the melta gun leader, but I have the rest. My leader was made from a Vaan Saar head on a Arbites leader body (the one with the long coat and shotgun).

Ok, I know it's not Friday but I dug these guys out of my bits box last night and thought I should show them off. The old old old terminator was probably one of the very first models I ever painted, horribly, with enamel paints.

The really old sculpt of a terminator has even more massive shoulders.

I love that version of Terminator armor, and I was excited when it got updated artwork, thinking a new model based on it might soon be arriving.

I'm still waiting...

They’re supposed to be regular terminators, but plastic casting was rather limited when Space Hulk was first released, 1989 I think... The genestealers were far better.

For flashback Friday I'm going to just smorgasbord this post with all sorts of retro goodies from my collection, so here goes a lots of random stuff.


Goblin Netters and Clubbers


Leman Russ, no honestly it is!


Oldschool Harleys


Spot the Magus.


The unwashed masses


Captain Classic


A unit of Yesteryears Yeomanry from my wood elves.


And the ref calls full-time on this flashback madness.

Lots of fun stuff on this thread, good memories. I've enjoyed some of the really retro paint jobs many of you still have on your vintage minis too. Some proper 90s reds on display. It was the best of times it was the blurst of times.

Now that's an interesting collection of miniatures:

2 Catachans, a Cadian, two Old Skool plastic Orlocks, a Redemptionist and a Ratskin brave! Plus the original (and still the best) Magus.

I’ve got an RTB06 worth of harlies kicking around. I should really take inventory and see if I can make a kill team out of them. Or at least take pictures so you can laugh at my old paint jobs.

A little home improvement project:


Killzone: Mordheim.

Been using some of the old card buildings as part of my 40k/KT terrain and they were getting banged up enough that I needed to glue some parts back on. While I was there I dug these 3 guys out of the partially built pile and slapped them together. The middle one is not actually Mordheim, but from the 6th WHFB starter.

It’s a good system for buildings. There was a frame sprue and the punched card for the floors and walls. The sprue could be used to make all sorts of buildings, and gave more structure and detail than just folded card.

I have a couple too, and was thinking I had to mix-and-match the arms to fit them in. It's not quite that bad, but close.

It's an ebay rescue, hope it goes well stripping it. I think it's acrylic paint. Also what is a Orrus spyrer?

Lastly, does anyone know what the terminator is? Is he a gray knight, or one of GW's old catalog termies? He's from 1989, he's now my librarian for Kill Team. He was pretty beat up, had chips in the pewter I covered with purity seals. The guy I got him from was going to bin him.

The Orrus Spyrer is an up-hive noble in a suit of fancy power armour hunting underhivers in Necromunda. If you mean the model to the left of the blue Inquisitor, yes that's a Grey Knight (the body, at least).

I think my group has two or three of those Rogue Trader Land Raiders sitting around...mostly in Chaos Space Marine armies now.

Thought I would add some old painted models as well, as I decided to strip and repaint my metal Eldar War Host:



Cheers,

Dettol to strip acrylic paint. Don't try to wash it after though.

The Spyrer is the guy with 2 power fists. I remember him from the Outlanders supplement to Necromunda but I don't know anyone who actually played with them.

What's surprising to me is the fact that the Lascannons haven't snapped off!

Oh, ignore me. I've had a closer look and can see the mass of superglue holding it on!

I used plastic rod and beads to repair mine, so that the guns could swivel again.

Also, I found ordinary staples to make good replacements for broken door handles on those old Land Raiders, Rhinos and Predators.
