50% of the Grots are completed bringing my painted total to 20. There is a special retro picture after the jump. So be sure to check that out.
How cool is this? A retro Ultramarine Captain leads his equally retro Terminators (on 25mm bases!) into combat against a horde of one-piece Gretchin. Apart from the Librarian all the models are the same pose, single piece models. I primarily love these old models for their nostalgic value. However, I do think a tidy, clean paint job does help make these models look better. I would have no problems using the above models in a game.
Do you agree with me, or are these classic sculpts dated and beyond help?
I have stated in the past that I would never use these models in the game as they are so bad. But having seen the paint job you've done I definitely would be proud to put them on a table.
Loving the tips as well.
You have done an amazing job on thos monopose monstrosities. Old gems like these really deserve some attention and you prove it's worth the energy spent.
It's no surpris ethe oldhammer movement is getting so popular these days. We all have fistfuls of these models at home and we have all learnt from back then.
Give us some more any time you want !
Really nice work on the gretchin. I'd love to see you keep adding to these 'Vintage' figures particularly the Orks. I can't wait to see the dreadnought.

Great work Garfy.. very inspiring and showing that some of the older pieces with newer paint jobs can really be top shelf pieces!
