Man, so much classic goodness here!  Love the single-pose halberiders, and the multipart swordsmen... both really good examples of their kind. :)

You have me wanting to head off and paint my huge pile of plastic spearmen with the lion-shield. Well, you have me excited about how cool they'd look to have them done . . . actually doing them is appealing. ;)

Great looking collection :::cheers:::

They only have yellow feathers. Its not how i do my marienburgers - i do them multi-coloured.
Furthermore, I thought marienburgers had orange on them like the Dutch?
Oh, ok. I've always gone by the Mordheim colour scheme. Never seen them in orange, although it would be fitting.
I agree with the inhumane treatment of animals.

Ok, so on the same topic of the 5th edition models, there was also some undead in the big box I bought, and some Bretonnians:

The undead First:

















And now here are the Bretonnians:

that should work out Mr. Ghost. We'll team up, mug warlord and take his models. You get the skellies and I'll take those beautiful Bretonnians. The heraldry is awesome. They look like straight from the box art.

So I took some photos of the Gryphon Legion I bought from BAWTRM, due to them being previously owned by a friend of his...

I was at one point going to re-base them, but now have decided I won't touch them at all, and will leave them in the condition his friend painted them in.

I am sorry I have not shared these photos with the forum much earlier - it has perhaps been almost 10 years?

So much awesomeness here!

Somewhat sad that these lovely models pile up in collectors' cabinets. Or are you playing more games when you accumulate more models?  :-D

Because I know I'm not.  :oops:

My main opponent lives in Brisbane now, so its primarily hobby for me, at least until my son is old enough.

Hey guys,

Been a while since I posted in this thread, thought I would revive it and post various stuff I have photos of, and hopefully encourage me to take more photos too...

Anyway, first up is a converted Dragon Ogre I made a while back (well, I actually made 8 of them, but this is the only one I have painted so far)...

Thanks guys.

Liche priest is High Elf plastic Mage and Tomb King bits. Pretty simple but really effective in my opinion.

The Blood Knights were really easy, because they just use old Chaos Knight horse heads and tails (and a few other bits and bobs) and the Dark Elf Cold One riders. I figure if I paint the faces as vampiric it will do the job well enough. And I am already using the Cold Ones for some marauder riders who had no mounts anyway, so easy swap.

So anyway, I took some photos of my painted undead... well some of it anyway - really can't be bothered to rank up 80 spear skeletons for a photo.... but here we go:

VAMPIRE COUNTS

Strigoi Vampires



I loved these guys back in 6th and 7th ed.

Lahmian Vampires and previous pictured Coven Throne conversion









Skeletons



Bats and Spiders (I never liked the Bat Swarm or Fell Bat models, so used these LotR Bat Swarm and Spiders instead)



Animated statues



I don't like the Crypt Horror models, so use these instead....

Black Knights unbarded skeletal steeds



Black Knights barded steeds (nightmares?)

Reall nice. I always like that grey shade of undead. I have 2 LotR bat models I’ve been trying to get rid of for months on eBay. If they don’t sell eventually I was going to use them in dragon rampart.Those skellies are fantastic with the round shields.  And lastly that engineer model with the battle plan is great.
