In a quest to get back into painting and improve my, shall we say, average skills, I recently salvaged a carry case full of old miniatures from the late 90s - early 2000s when I started collecting Warhammer. I'm not sure whether 3rd edition era truly counts as 'retrohammer', but there are some fairly old, terrifyingly heavy, white metal models as well as a couple of retro tanks and plastic kits that I'm going to strip down and work on.
Seeing as I have the attention span of a toddler, I thought I'd create a Project Log to help keep on track.
Some of the miniatures I'm planning on working with include:
- The old, 3rd edition era metal command squad.
- A selection of plastic and metal Terminators - WiP
- The 'original' Captain Sicarius Games Day miniature - WiP
Original 2nd/3rd edition Rhino- Completed Original 2nd/3rd edition Razorback- Completed Games Day mid-2000s Space Marine Sergeant with Power Fist.- Completed
Mostly I think they'll be redone to match the DIY chapter I'm working on. If I get time, the Wolves will be prepped for the new Codex. Sicarius will, of course, be an Ultramarine for old time's sake.
To whet your appetite, and show you how average early teenage me was at painting, here are a few snaps taken on my phone while organising and preparing things for stripping...
More updates...at some point.
