Simply beautiful! I really love that old school colour scheme. It really suits your classic miniatures.  :-*

Very nice indeed! A fully completed Helmawr gang is such a rare thing. I really enjoy the yellow jackets on these.

Hello again!

I show you my "ninja" imperial assassin. I painted it after almost 20 years without picking up a brush.
It is one of my favorite miniatures of imperial agents.

I hope you like it!

Good again!

Today I bring my two plastic eldar guardians.

The one on the left is from the era of the second edition of the WH40K, but the one on the right (with a huge shuriken rifle) is the first plastic eldar officially released on the ROGUE TRADER era, but not for this game: it came for the "Eldar Attack" expansion of the Space Crusade.

The scheme colour is Yriel's Eldritch Raiders.

Lovely additions!

That completed Gang looks stunning, also good to see some proper old skool tiger stripes on those Guardians.

Sigh.  I miss the days when shuriken catapults were weapons that struck fear in any foe's heart.  The anemic version that's somehow persisted for six editions now feel like a sad parody of the real thing.

Nice Guardians, as for the shuri-cats do you mean a range of 24", Str 4, -1 save mod and following-fire?  :-* see how old are we?

Keep up the good work with the old Eldar, I have some metal ones to repaint, the proto-Dire Avenger ones.

Knowing my luck, I would throw the pin and still be holding the grenade - gulp!

They had a -2 save mod in RT, and that when power armor was only a 4+ save.  Think they had a +2 to hit within 12" too instead of the more common +1, but I might be wrong.    Went through Marines like a hot knife through butter, and hardly anyone else even got a save.  They were still pretty respectable in 2nd ed too, where the following fire became a sustained fire die, "regular" Eldar dropped a point of ballistic skill and enemy power armor climbed to a 3+ save.  Still the best "rifle" weapon in the game, with the possible exception of the plasma gun (which is more of special squad support weapon, at least until Caul's freaks started fielding whole units with them).

Apparently the cost of having God Guns on their basic infantry for two editions at the dawn of the game was to get fewer new sculpts and units than any army in the game for the last twenty years or so.  It's a good thing so many of those older sculpts were decades ahead of their time...  :)

Gah, you are right I stand corrected, two many boltguns in my head  :o lol

Yeah 12" assault only weapons for a race that is so advanced and dying out, stupid, stupid! In my version of 40K 3rd they get back 24" max and stay assault 2, Str 4, AP5 which is almost as good as the originals ;D
