Morning all - now I don't often post many "Look what I've got!" posts, or at least I hope I don't. However, yesterday I was presented with this by my Mother-in-Law after she'd been to a local car boot sale.
At first I assumed it was full of old Citadel paints and hoped that they would still be usable. When she handed the box over though, I nearly dropped it because of the weight.
It was full of lead!
After I had assured her that £5 was probably a good price to have paid, I had a good rummage to see what was lurking in there...
Dark Elf Blood Bowl team - painted up as the Darkside Cowboys I believe. I might keep them like this and just spruce them up a bit as they are quite nicely painted and I think my Wasteland Wanderers Dark Elf team is strong enough as it is. I rather like the conversion on one of the throwers too.
All three Chainsaw Warriors plus three trouble shooters. I'm quite excited about the Chainsaw Warriors and I'm sure they'll get used as bounty hunters and pest control in many a game of Rogue Trader.
Paranoia is a game that has long intrigued me - these three Trouble Shooters may mean trouble for me as I get slowly sucked in to collecting more of the range with a view to playing the game...
Golgfag 1 musician and Golgfag 2 Trooper - my unit of Goldfag's Mercenary Ogres has enough troopers so I may pinch an idea I saw a while back of painting him up as a Black Orc. Might work with the Ogre drummer as well.
Noldor Deep Elves and Elf warriors - these chaps will reinforce my Wood Elf army that is still patiently sat in a box, waiting to be painted.
C33 Adventure packs - flying carpet. Well chuffed with this one! Check out the 80's milliput basing and toadstools. Again I'll probably just touch this chap up as I quite like the paint job he has.
The little imp might get painted electric blue like the Genie out of Disney's Aladdin though!
Lord of the Rings - parts of fellowship boxed set, Thorin, Saruman, mounted Easterling. Without particularly trying, I seem to have amassed a fair few LOTR minis - who knows I may even play it some day? The Easterling is a great model - he might end up as the leader of the Chaos Thug Horse unit I vaguely plan to do when I get round to my Chaos army.
Halflings - C11 - Smallfoot. Slottas - Hacker, Hamfist Halfwit. With the LOTR hobbits and the few Halflings i have painted up in my collection already, it looks like i could just about field a small unit of ten of these little fella's. Should be a nice addition to my Empire army when I get around to it (seems to b e a theme developing here!).
Human Ranger, Ninja - Dim Sum, Blink dogs and Zombie. The dogs will come in handy for all sorts of scenarios so glad to have them. I also now have a good handful of Ninja - might even have time to paint them up for the Journey to the East game I have planned for BOYL 2015...
The zombie brings my zombie horde to a grand total of two minis! Got a way to go before they shamble on to any battlefield.
Assorted Goblinoids - Harboth's Orc archer variants, Snotling, Mudat's Mercenary Half Orc trooper and Beast from the Goblin mutants range.
An intriguing conversion on Beast - he's had his shield removed and a shoulder pad and gauntlet sculpted on. Maybe he's up for a bit of Blood Bowl? I think I'll give him a weapon and he can join my Beastman pack until I track down a few more of his ilk.
Eldar, Alo, Alo - Gothic Horror, Poisoned Wind Globadier, Thaumatergist. Another Space Elf to join my small Pirate gang. Not sure what I'l do with the copper yet. The Skaven can join his litter brothers in my Beastman pack and Banedon can join my trades pile as I've got him already.
Assorted Norse Dwarves, Dwarf Villagers and Adventurers, including Sven Hasslefriesian. Loads of Dwarves! My allied contingent of Dwarves is now looking pretty strong. With this lot I can field a unit of clansmen, bolster my crossbow unit and Troll Slayers and use the knight (middle of the third row down) as a champion for my Ironbreakers. Sven will go in the trade pile as I've got him already.
Dwarf Bolt Thrower - another Dwarf war machine to join the cannon and organ gun I have stashed away.
Dwarf Lords of Legend and Inconvenienced Dwarf - D'oh another incomplete set I now need to complete! Should give me some characterful heroes for my Dwarf contingent too. Love the inconvenienced Dwarf - might have to install him in my Mighty Fortress somewhere...
Various Fantasy Tribes Dwarves and an Ironclaw Gothic Dwarf. These guys will go into the Dwarf clansmen unit I mentioned earlier with the Ironclaw Dwarf perhaps making a rather grand champion. The assassin will join the more disreputable Dwarves in my collection to form a vertically challenged robber band!
Spined Dragon and Hatchling and bits of a Fiend Factory Young Dragon. I'm rather pleased to have a Dragon as it's always been a bit of a gap in my collection. The Spined Dragon will make for a great objective or GM controlled monster in many a scenario. Hopefully I might come across a body for the FF Dragon.
Complete Adventurer, Wizard, Fantasy Adventurers paladin? Grenadier Fighter, Preslotta Elf? I'm really pleases with the wizard and Complete Adventurer as they're both minis I've coveted for a while now! The adventurer will make a great addition to my baggage train.
Pygmies - Love 'em or hate 'em - looks like my Slann renegades are going to get some local guides.
Chaos Dwarf Renegades - Mad Marik Trollbiter, Doomaxe the Dreaded, Pulper Spikehead, Napper Grundrin, Khazek Doomlord. D'oh - another set that now needs completing!
Chaos Dwarves - Jezreel Ironhand, Zelazad Hornhead, Grimdur Gutwrencher, Spikes Harveywotan, Stunty Sven, Baldrik Backbreaker, Ori Pointedbeard and Hairy Henghist Horse-eater. Looks like I can add a decent sized unit of Chaos Dwarves to my Chaos army now!
And these D&D Duergar will fit right in with them.
Presumably these two shields were once attached to the Chaos Dwarves and I rather like them - think they'll be retouched and preserved when I get round to it.
Goblin King and parts of his chariot - the Goblin King will probably end up as a spearman or champion for another regiment and I'll add the chariot, with some new crew and draught animals to my growing unit of Goblin chariots. The broken banner top will make a good totem for one on of my other Goblin units.
Marneus Calgar - another set that needs completing!
Traveller minis and unknown vehicle? Seem to have a few of these knocking around now - must resist temptation to get more...
And there you have it - apologies for the "Look what I've got!" post but it's been a while since I have had the good luck to get my hands on a windfall like this!
