I'm planning to paint all the evil characters from the cover of the Warhammer Fantasy Battle Third Edition rulebook.
About 11 miniatures that will be a nice warband for Advanced Song of Blades & Heroes or Frostgrave.

Here the first two characters painted, two 1984 pre slotta C27 Chaos Goblin Mutants.

What an excellent idea! And very fine they look too! Those old chaos goblins are marvellous figures, and you've certainly done them justice.

A great project, keep going!  :)

This is my favorite set from the "C" Era:

Love it! I never realised those two from the front cover of WH 3rd Ed were actual figures!

Lovely painting as always.  8)

Thanks :)
I have a WHFB 3rd edition rulebook and Also I didn't know that most of the characters from the cover were real miniatures.
I especially liked the Chaos Sorcerer, and I knew about the real miniature some time ago... then I did a research and found most of the miniatures.
Almost all of the miniatures are pre slotta, from the first compendium of citadel, only two miniatures (the chaos warrior and the orc with hat) have slotta bases.
This incresead my interest on citadel pre slotta miniatures, many of them are nice and could be fine with the right paint job.

It's always worth remembering that a lot of Citadel slottabased models were also pre-slotta models (the C36 hobgoblins, for example, and many of the lizardmen and beastmen). Others used the same bodies or heads: many of the first - excellent - range of slottabased orcs are conversions of the older Armoured Orc range. I think the very best Perry and Morrison Citadel miniatures fall immediately on either side of the introduction of slottabases - and many of them straddle it by having both solid and slotta incarnations.

Another character from the cover of the WHFB 3rd edition rulebook.
I had some problems to find this miniature, it was not available from the pre slotta range.
Then I found it in the AD&D range of citadel (BDD02 Dungeon monsters Boxed Set).

Very nice! I'd never made the link between the orc in the picture and the Dungeon Monsters guy. The one on the front is the one of the preslotta champions, I think.

Brilliant idea for a project and lovely painting. Add me to the list of those who had the book yet never realized they were based on actual miniatures.

Beyond being BEAUTIFULLY painted, the Old Greenies are all new to moi. The never made an appearance in the local hobby store when they were new...most of the older Citadel never did. VERY WELL DONE!

A great follow-up to this would be the baddies from the Warhammer FRP cover. One orc - the one with the black plume and axe - seems to appear in both!
