Love all the new editions.
Back when Chaos was 'proper', I loved that period too and still have a few figures from the 80's that I will not be parting with.
Love that scarecrow too, he is great!
 :-* :-*



 ;D :D ;D when Chaos wore pink tights and crazy haircuts! Nowadays, the models may be even more detailed but it's often (but not always) too much blood ans gore (Khorne) or pox and gore (Nurgle).

Over the weekend I did  "renovations" on some old Rackham models I found. The paintjobs are by now 13-15 years old, but an overly enthusiastic application of gloss varnish by past-Florian preserved the models quite well.

I must say, I'm impressed how well the sculpts have aged. I can't still find anything comparable in the Fantasy sector.

Added a few highlights, repaired damages and I hope I need not be ashamed of them.

All belong to the Griffins of Akkylania, one of my five (!) Confrontation warbands. It's really a pity that the rules sucked so much...

First an inquisitor champion.

And after I had finished these, I was so hooked that I took two unpainted Orcs of Bran-O-Kor and painted them. Nearly finished both.

Here they are.

I always have a soft spot for the Rackham figures, and you're quite right: there isn't much that can objectively compare to them. Nice work on the orcs and griffons, they are two of my favorite factions.

Thank you! Rackham models have a certain style that IMO no one has ever achieved. It's an elegance that GW never aimed at (or was unable to do?) combined with realistic proportions in humans and many funny little details. With non-humans there is also so much character in the faces. I really adore the orcs for this.

Had a little bit of time to paint an old Chaos Sorceror. Wonderful mini. I really love the mix of Heavy Metal, He-Man and Moorcock!
