Guys , not sure what you think but I managed to get hold of 43 Metal Classic Marauders .

http://www.solegends.com/citcat2004cgchaos/c2004cgchaos035x-02.htm

They are absolutely impressive sculpts, top quality.

I noticed that a lot of them look sort of Vampirish, with the Helmet design, so i'm running them as Grave Guard Elites for 9th Age.

I woke up a few years ago and realised that life is a matrix like simulation. Everyone you ever meet ages and rots, your wife gets old, your kids leave... Only miniatures remain , lasting centuries.. millenia. What we paint now will echo in eternity!

I don't find them very vampireish but maybe paint would change my mind.

I think they are awesome models tho and we'll worth it if you can get them at a decent price. I have 25-30 of the ones with flails. They paint up very easily.

Agreed mate, i saw ebay running an auction for 43 of them, with the Ltd Ed champion, and no one bid, so i swooped after and landed them all for average 2.50 / model.

Which seems nice.

I got mine cheap as well

Seems like they are very underrated by collectors. I think they are some of the nicer 5th edition time period models get ever made.  Best marauder models hands down.

Totally agree , they are really fine detailed, and well proportioned, almost Mordheim quality.

Revelations , recently decided , how did I ever think plastic or resin constituted a miniature , metal only , all else is not even classed as a miniature, no arguments

Agree. They are excellent. Gamers may not like because they prefer flails or sword and board, and as someone who appreciates models they are the best of the marauder lot in my mind.

First 5 done.

Guy I bought the 43 models from had done some nice weapon swaps to add variety.

If you're looking for a decent standard quick paintjob, then this is certainly worth it, but I wouldn't call it the holy grail as these seem to fall short of your previous high standard.  :engel:
