My Picks for the GW Made To Order Service

Made to Order

There will be many good articles on the Games Workshop Made To Order policy decision, this will not be one of them.

Apparently Games Workshop will be recreating out of print models for people to buy once more. This is excellent because I’ve been hunting around for some very specialist kits that I think will really make people smile when they unwrap them on Christmas morning.

Lets begin.

Prototype  Terminator – 1989


Second Prototype Terminator – 1989


The Christmas Marines – 1987


Dwarf Mountaineer – 1989


Chaplain Lemartes – 1998


Doom Rider – 1999

  • Randy Randalman

    Doomrider was the worst idea (and model) in 40k history.

  • euansmith

    I’ve got the first two Terminator variants. The first one was super cool. That Mountaineer is a lovely mini.

    • amaximus167

      Yeah, that Mountaineer has really stood up to the test of time.

  • Dain Q. Gore

    Yeah, I actually like the old LeMartes a lot. I’ll paint him eventually. Some of my picks would include all the old Chaos Champs, Blood Bowl Star Players and Sanity Claws

    • petrow84

      I’d add Iron warrior warsmith and old chaos cultists.

  • am1t

    Harlequin Avatar/High Avatar … in fact the old style Harlequins loved them
    Bloodbowl star players

    that would be $$$$$ for GW

    • NikosanPrime

      I actually have over a hundred of the original harlequins and I have to say the new ones are superior.

      That being said I am going to collect some of the new and strip the paint off the old and then paint them all in matching updated themes and see how they turn out. Because They weren’t bad models, just not as good as the new. But they did have a lot of variety on roles that don’t exist now. Like Warlocks and independent Death Jesters and even the incomplete anime rules. I just liked all of the roles that unfortunately were relegated to unit upgrades instead of independent characters that could create a CAD.

      But maybe one day they will be a viable army.

  • I can agree with all. except Lemartes. It’s a terrible sculpt. The original Death Company chaplain, though, looked really good, and still does to this day.

  • Ve Ly Pè

    Okay, bringing Lemartes back in that form should be against a law.

  • Aezeal

    Don’t want any of those.

  • Kritarion

    2 models for 1,95 pounds. AHAHAHAHahahaha……. *sniff*

    • euansmith

      Back then, you could buy a decent second hand kidney for that kind of money.

  • AnomanderRake

    All the current Aspect Warriors, only back in pewter.

  • PrehistoricUF0

    Honestly their initial two waves have been pretty solid choices so far. A good spread of heroes and now some full squads down the line it looks like. Seems like they have someone who’s actually in touch with what people want – I have faith no one will be left wanting by the time GW runs through most of the worthy models. I really wanted the Juan Diaz Daemonettes and they seem to be in the next wave!

  • GiftoftheMagi

    They used to have this casualty model that I loved. Marine holding a limp, bandaged arm, dragging his bolter.

  • I’m pretty sure the mountaineer was a conversion by Phil Daniels.

    I used to own that second Termie…dunno what I did with him, swopped or binned probably 🙁

  • zeno666

    The dwarf mountaineer is a cool mini for sure.

    See!? I do like some GW stuff 😉

  • Tom Koschka

    lemartes with crux terminatus bigger as his head… carrying a boulder weighing 5 tons, seems ridiculous even in power armour. 😉

  • JL

    My goodness that second Terminator is bad. Best left buried as a collectors’ curiosity.

    Love the Mountaineer however.

  • Ebsolom

    I vote for the Chaos Toilet, it would make and awesome spawn for when you roll on the Chaos Boon table.
