Over ten years of rubbish - my old models.

I have now been painting 40K and Fantasy models for over 10 years, and posting pictures of them online for nearly 7. I missed my 10th anniversary by 2 months, but here's a belated selection of pictures from the last 10 years. I painted most of these models years ago and as such, they are painted and photographed awfully. You have been warned!

Here's an example : not particularly good!

Click on the images for a closer look, if you dare...

These were the first ever models that I posted pictures of online! They were painted in May 2003 for a friends army (most of which are in my bitz box now!), and as they were the first pictures we ever took they were terrible! I have no idea what happened to these two models in particular. The Epic Salamanders were painted 2 years after this, for my own army.


I really enjoy the LoTR game, although I rarely get to play it. These models were painted between 2003 and 2007, and some of them are almost competent.

I've collected Chaos in both 40K and fantasy, and I do like the army. I did really well in games with my Chaos Marines army, but eventually sold them because they were painted terribly. I still have the fantasy models somewhere wrapped up in a box, and may use them one day.



Other Space Marines
I've collected several different chapters before setting on Blood Angels again, and here's a collection of the different marines I've painted and fielded.




This is one of the only armies in this post where I'm still pleased with the paint job I did, and will one day big them out of the loft and finish the army. I got very close to a completely painted army with these.

Misc 40K
Here's some other odds and ends that I've painted for 40K over the years.


Misc Fantasy
Here's several different photographs of various other Fantasy models over the years.




Other Misc
Here's some odds and ends, pictures of old painting desks and other such things.

That's all for now, I'll go back to painting newly painted models shortly. To close, here's the army lists I took to the two tournaments I competed in (one of which I jointly won!):

Those Salamanders are from Epic, the base is smaller than a penny!
