Your absolutely right. It's more of a curtosey in spirit of the thread.As I mentioned I wanted to take part . Unfortunately work means I may not be able to(in time) It wouldn't have been fair to number or claim it as a newly painted figure. Nor would it be to ignore the fact I said I take part.

No. 8 - GW Wood Elf?

I'm pretty sure this is pre-2000, correct me if I'm wrong? I think it's a GW Wood Elf but I'm not sure. I'm sure someone here will know? Some of you will recognise the inn in the background as the superb work of Silent Invader.



This is one of the original GW Wood Elf Wardancers, sculpted by Jes Goodwin :)

It certainly is. Lovely, clean sculpt and nice to paint. It's from the Elf5 release and I think it was called Iorlaf.

Yes, that's what I was trying to remember, Wardancers!

I did find some more of these hidden in the wardrobe but this was the only one not painted.*

(*Correction: just found another one unpainted)  :)

I love those old skeletons. Such great sculpts and so versatile. (Easy to change into a Bloodbowl team back in the day)

I did the same, though they haven't survived the years well. I wrapped a few up in tiny bandages to create mummies. I have a dozen or so C17 Citadel metal skeletons from 1987 too. We're only at No. 9 so still 91 places left.

I would have expected half-orcs or half-elves but not half-skeletons. :o

Why not do a unit as a single post? Can we expand the parameters of the party to include units?

No. 10: Armoured Cloud Giant by Ral Partha, sculpted by Tom Meier, released around the mid-eighties, don't have an exact year.




Painted this one the last two evenings, it was great fun again. For the shield designs I cut up some Little Big Men transfers and repainted them. I really love the old Tom Meier giants, so full of character and humour, and I think I've got them all, mostly painted. Some of them were released as Citadel giants, so it can get a bit confusing. Maybe I can get another one done for the party ... Unfortunately my trusty camera is no longer supported by WIN10, so this is an ok phone picture, but doesn't show the miniature well.

Oh, my! I should be capable of finding quite a few old models for this... Now, should I start with a Chaos Warrior, an Elf Wardancer, an Empire Sergeant or Knight, a Dwarf or Gnome, or a really ancient Liche... +  ;D

Does anyone know if the Copplestone Collection Barbarian Queen is pre or post 2000, btw?

I think we'll just keep it to single figures for simplicity. Anyway, shouldn't you be painting?  lol

Lovely paint job Admiral. That base is rather splendid too.
