Hey all,

 

Turns out moving house is a great was to find old stuff - some of which i thought i'd share here as a record - since i can now! (my previous B&C incarnation was back in the power armour only days).

 

Its not the whole army - but its a lot of it, and the photos had to be taken somewhat covertly so no full army shots.

 

Missing about 16 metal harlequins, 1st ed dreadnought (wraithlord), some of my less impressive aspect warriors (HB's, DA's, SH's and more WS's)

 

The bulk were painted back in the 90's with a few updates such as the pathfinders and re-done warp spiders.

 

I'll start with the heavy hitters:

 

Avatar - still a beast!

Eldrad

and his retinue:

Now for the phoenix lords and their aspects - i didnt photograph them all (my hawks and avengers were pretty average)

I also created my back in the day, since Warp Spiders were lacking without an explanation, Ariadnos:

Now for the Aspect Warriors - the bulk painted 15-20yrs ago, warp spiders more recently (5-10?)

Rangers/Pathfinders - two flavours:

And last but not least - about half of the guardians:

Thanks for indulging me in this trip down memory lane!

Some of the older sculpts really do show their age now, but that doesn't stop them looking brilliant - especially when they're done so much justice. Fantastic work!

CLASSIC! And done justice by your painting skills. This is the Eldar army I wish I had if I could’ve painted that good/this good 27 years ago. Thanks for sharing these!

Grey, however, failed to capture the ape. It escaped to France where it murdered a rich widow and was hanged.
