Hi guys sorry if this is in the wrong place.

 

Back in about 4th ed before 30k was a twinking in FWs eye there was a bit of a craze around here where loads of people were doing preHeresy armies full of great conversions and interesting minis.

 

Id love to see some if anyone still has them or any pics.

Apologist is the man, his Praetors of Calth are stunning. 

 

https://www.tapatalk...irstexpedition/  this is the forum I was using back before I moved to B&C, but this is when FW released the resin kits and minis. There was a forum called The Great Crusade that was run by Laurie Golding before he joined GW that predated the heresy ruleset and minis by FW but that appears to have vanished.

Still got my Alpha Legion, the fall of photobucket effectively removed that era of photos from the internet though so you may have problems finding the pictures :(

(Aw, thanks Slave to Darkness - you’ll make me blush.) The period around 2006–2010 or so was insanely creative and collaborative between all sorts of wonderful hobbyists.

As Noserenda says, a lot of the images are now sadly lost. If you do want to have a dig through the rubble of a more civilised and elegant period msn-wink.gif there are still lots online here and there.

My Praetors of Calth project log is still up on Warseer, and the more recent stuff is here on the B&C.

To this day I still remember your Alpha Legionnaire with that bad ass Heavy Bolter made from an M249.

Yeah, Photobucket kinda ruined a lot. I had Siege of Terra / Scouring Era Death Guard made from the Armour Marks when FW first released them mated to their Plague Marine kits and using period correct weaponry. This was what? Maybe 4 years or so before they released Heresy, but you knew it was coming with the release of the old armour.

All of those pictures lost...

I have a meagre force of 21 pre-30k Heresy Dark Angels, not sure where but I never get rid of models smile.png They're not that great but you made do back then laugh.png If I ever get into 30k I'd be doing the DA properly I'm sure, if I can dig them out I'll take some pictures so everyone can feel better about their efforts tongue.png

They were the only Smurf army that I ever liked.

They pictures are still vivid in my memory. :)

There was a Thousand Sons army I was awed by back in the day on warseer as well. By Magos Explorator I think his name was. Wonderful thing.

This thread reminded me of a very cool chap who went by the name Iacton in days of yore on the Great Crusade forum. He was such a wellspring of painting inspiration. I hope he is well.
I found his thread here on B&C as well but alas, with the nuking of Photobucket the pictures within are but foggy watermarked memories...
