Someone decided today was the day old bloggers, post old stuff, about old minis or something. I’m not sure. I finished painting my naked chicks, but I can’t show anyone a photo for fear of offending Zee Germans. They are however old models that I got in a trade in I think 1996. Remember 1996? That was Warhammer 40,000 2nd Edition. Also known as the big one, as that was the edition that had the first box with models and rules. I still have unpainted models from that box…
I’m known online and in Vancouver for painting old out of print models. I’m also known for still working on my old armies, rather than start a shiny new army, so old stuff day is a bit redundant for me. This blog is only a little over a year old, but I’ve been blogging for over five years and posting pictures of my minis to the Internet for even longer… So lets see what old stuff should I recommend to Malcolm, oh wait Malcolm can’t be bothered to read this blog, as he thought my naked chicks were in fact Daemonettes…
Here is a few years old post showing some of the top painted Chaos Space Marine models in my collection.
In 2006 I went to see my friend Thor in Nanaimo and took a few photos of his minis. He was working at GW Burnaby last time I saw him.
Every few years I try to paint some Goblins in the hopes of getting a painted Goblin army on the table. The new book is out and one has my name on it at the LGS, so here is the command group from one of my big blocks of Night Goblins that I painted back in 2006.
I’ve painted a few models that have become famous and people have talked about them in foreign languages on boards you’ve never heard of. I know this because I look at web analytics and do Google Image searches and such. Blastmarker Billy is one of those famous models.
If you want to go really old school, here is an army list, and the surviving members of the army I took to CanGames in 1997, when I won my only Warhammer 40,000 tournament.
I should still take more pictures of my old models, people ask me to on forums, but I don’t have the really fancy camera and I just would rather work on adding to my painted miniature collection rather than documenting every model I’ve ever painted. None the less a lot of photos have been posted to my vanity domain over the years, but the best of them are on Flickr now too. I guess I’ll throw in a few inline images from there and call this post done. ;-)
