Me too. I have been slowly buying up Mordians from ebay over the past 2 years. They are not particularly sought-after but nobody over here seems to have more than a couple of them / wants to part from them. Funnily enough, the same is true for Praetorians – they rarely reach the prices seen over at your side of the channel. As for the orks, I only have the ones from the starter box plus a metal dreadnought. I would love to add some metal minis but so far my will was stronger (Knightmare miniatures ). Perhaps less so once I have ruined my BATG score.
But BATG is about painting! Our collections deserve the love! I will have some 90s stuff to show in springtime, if I can get through my current targets. Multiple types of stormtroopers, some vintage commissars, etc
@Admiral Thanks I rather enjoy painting these old plastic models – I think they hold up quite well for their age. I actually did drill the barrels in the front but was too lazy to drill out the muzzle brakes. I may touch them up at a later point.
@chitzkoi 100% correct. I am happy and a bit surprised that there are miniatures for such niche settings + Marc Copplestone appears to be a former Foundry (GW?) employee. The sculpts are rather simplistic compared to Citadel, so painting them should be quick.
@Oxymandias Thanks. They took way longer then they should have… compared to your recent contrast and streaking grime gobbos.
