Keeping it Old School

Having grown up with GW many years ago I am quite keen on the older style figures, particularly the Jes Goodwin Skaven, Mark Copplestone Imperial guard, the orks that went with them and the older metal Empire figures.

I have plenty of these (enough for very large armies of each) and I feel that my painting skills are up to the task of doing a decent job on them.

Here's a selection of said figures from all four ranges but hopefully in the near future I'll do dedicated posts to each 'faction' as and when it gets added to.

The steamtank was scratchbuilt quite a few years ago but I've got two of the original kits somewhere waiting to be painted

  1. Some really sweet pieces here. Funny thing, I have that Ork Dread exactly in the same colours :D (Not up to your skills, of course, but the same Dread, haha)

  2. That steam tank is great in a "similar-but-unique" way, and that mercenary general conversion is great too. Looking forward to seeing these all come out.

    1. Thanks :-)

      I think the cannon barrel is a bit long (along with the originals) but it'll do for now.

      cheers

  3. Great work on these old school beauties! Very impressive that you scratch built a steam tank that on first glance you would think was just the original. Looking forward to seeing more mate. 👍😎
