Agree...Maybe I am getting old, but I am finding that all the old metal models have more  appeal..they just have so much more character that the plastic kits

Ok, a few more...one of the more enjoyable aspects of this project is finding fresh love for  old figures from the bits box...here is a 2 headed giant aka GW ogre.

Nice parade. :D They look the business. Nice giant too! You've hidden the join between heads and body pretty nicely.

The heads connect pretty well...not much filling was required. I picked up 3 boxes of Skull Pass back in the day...some giant spiders

Though the individual painting isn't very ellaborated, your army looks amazing all together. Please, bring us more 20mm vignettes like these.
