A little something painted for myself for a change. I'd like to do more but no promises. More pics and some waffle over on my blog.

Retro.  Those were the days, long before GW earned the Evil Empire moniker.

I love the old Beakie marines.  Maybe my favorite GW minis.

Oh dear scruffy lord in heaven that is gorgeous!!! What you can get out of an old plastic model is absolutely remarkable.
It's so damn clean!

Ditto the above - and the chips to the white line are just grand. Makes the Space Hulk tiles look so much nicer too.  Cool Cool Cool

Nice. I think I may still have a couple of them left on the sprue (well my brother's) Great to see it on the old school spacehulk board too.

Beautiful work - hard to believe that this is one of the old RTB01 plastics built as-is!  Love

I wonder if anybody has tried to re-pose these and add some more sculpted details back (so an extra joint/crease in the foot, more upright position, re-doing the left arm so that's a bit more natural, etc)?

Thanks for the comments everyone.  Smiley

Retro.  Those were the days, long before GW earned the Evil Empire moniker.

They may not have had the EE title then but plenty of people seemed to dislike them or bitch about them even in the late 80's. Some people hated space marines from day one, or at least from the time when as it was put by someone in Games Master International magazine in the early 90's, they started wearing flares.  Laugh

Lovely painting.
Beaky helmet was also known as the womble helmet in the UK. Older UK gamers will remember.

Yup, I've done that a few times actually. My last lot was when I built a Space Wolf army a few months back. I'm using my phone ATM, so I can't post pics, but there's stuff on my blog about them if your interested.

As I already commented on your blog Stone, be looks great! Eavy Metal eat your heart out Smiley
