MBG here with a new article called Flashback
Friday Weekend, where I dig deep for something cool that I have from back in the day.
You always hear the question: “How did you get into the hobby?”, and for me it was getting bored with assembling fighter jet models.
I could even never afford the good jet kits either. Plus those things had a ton of components, we’re spoiled by Games Workshop when it comes to piece count, believe me.
These guys date back to the dawning of the Imperium: Rogue Trader era circa 1988-89.
They were also one of my first purchases back in the day as a wee lad.
I never really played the game till the mid-nineties (mostly cause I was bad at maths till then- and Nintendo was fun), but I still seemed to love to paint and model for some reason.
Eventually I managed to paint these guys, and hey looks like I wasn’t too bad for a youngblood either!
I was shocked to find them again recently, and while I remembered them as being GW, couldn’t for the life of me remember seeing anything like them in say like the past 20 years.
So I went searching for pics to verify my sanity, and sure enough the Stuff of Legends site had pictures of them from a very old catalog. Check out some of the other “similar” models on the page.
Oh boy how the hobby has come a long way…
Checkout the Three Sixty below, and have a great weekend! -MBG
