As there is a poll about the ugliest 40k vehicle i thought it would be nice to have an ugliest 40k model too :D this has probably been done before and if it has then feel free to shout abuse at me.

This poll covers:
Infantry
Special characters
Walkers
Bikes/Cavalry

You will have to check the box of the army that the model belongs to.

It does not include tanks of other big engines of doom as they have already been covered :D
Please leave a post saying what the model you think is ugliest :D
for me it's Captain Cortez. That makes me cringe
P.S this is my first poll so i apologise if i screw it up :(

Going with Tau, they look like T*RD!

Especially Battlesuits, Stealthsuits and Broadsides.

The Dark Eldar are hands down the stupidest looking things on two legs.

For me it's a toss up between Captain Cortez and Chaplain Lemartes. Both are awful looking models.

Yep they do, was that poll for worse range i would vote forTau too.

As for worst model, it's inquisitor Karamazov - nothing else comes even near in uglynes.

of all the currently available GW mini's, I think these guys take the cake of most atrocious mini's.

however they are going byebye soon, so I'd also have to say Guard Ogryn (although they are also going byebye soon), Rough Riders, and the Leman Russ Demolisher.

I'm going for Fabius Bile, he looks sh1t.

01-09-2007, 18:44
aww, I like Fabius... seeing as how I cant decide, Im gonna go for Lucius... he's just lame looking...

The metal possessed. Ugliest things on the face of the earth. Why they even came out with those escapes me. They make cameras break. :cries:

I went with Tau.

GW and FW don't know what to do with them. Do they want battlesuits curvy and smooth or hard and angular? Make up your minds! Plus Firewarriors only have tow poses; walk and shoot. And only Shoot looks any good.

Personally I'd go with Daemonhunters, just because of those bloody awful daemon hosts, with the arcoflaggelants from the witchhunters range coming in second.

Why no option for "any army with a model sculpted by gary morely"?

Definately a tie between the possessed and Captain Cortez.

Arhalien
01-09-2007, 19:45
Hmm, Guard are coming pretty close with the Catachans (how could Goodwin and the Perrys make something like those!), rough riders and ogryns, although a lot of their models are pretty impressive; Steel Legion, Vostroyans, Cadians, all lovely.
I'm going to go for Dark Eldar though; they're just far too dated to look good today.

edit: Eldar and Dark Eldar as the same poll option? One has possibly the best current miniature line, the other, IMO, the worst.
Hmmmm....

it's Bile, such a lame effort for such a class character!

I'll create my own and you'll see... :mad:

01-09-2007, 20:46
Dark Eldar, Cadians, Catachans, Daemonhosts, Orgyrns (old and new alike) ect

Verdi

and Bile ;)

Grimtuff
01-09-2007, 20:49

Bile, a model that's probably getting on for about 10 years old and looks fantastic for its age (as do many other Jes Goodwin figs) ;)

Verdi
01-09-2007, 20:52
The thing is i've just got back into 40K and started up a CSM Horde again, I gave up about 10 years ago so I was around when Kharn, Abaddan and Bile came out so i'm fully aware of the age of the scuplt but even at 12 years old I thought he was cr@p!!.. and I still do!

Dark Eldar

worst models ever

especially the basic warriors

this poll is not fair on eldar, as most of the eldar models are very well done... however, dark eldar suck the wang chung big time and should be burnt and who cares about how much they would damage the environment, they are *****.

freebooter
01-09-2007, 23:53
Dark Eldar by far.

They are the most hideous models ever to assault us with their presence.

Meat Shield
02-09-2007, 00:29
All 17 of those votes are for Dark Eldar not Eldar i can garantee you. Rough Riders take it for me.

And whats the point in even putting deamonhunters in there all they are is SM's with swords.

Beast Rabban
02-09-2007, 00:43
Worst range would be Dark Eldar.
I reckon Chaplin LeMartes is the worst model though

FWIW They looked stupid in the mid-90s, if anything they look stupider now.

02-09-2007, 01:20
I have to agree most of the Dark Eldar are... ugh.

(I like their vehicles, just not most of their troops)

Bretonnian Lord
02-09-2007, 01:29
Rough Riders... make me want to cry. DKoK Riders are cool but the normal ones are hideous.

I also dislike the Space Marine models, I think their armor is far too bulky, but that's probably just because I play Eldar. ;)

02-09-2007, 01:45
Chaos have consistently come out with the worst models I have ever seen.

Doomrider and the metal possessed are the big names but there are others.

In saying that, they also have some of the nicest models in the range.

Azyreth
02-09-2007, 01:49
Dark Eldar by a long shot. I think their vehicles look great, but their troops look absolutely horrible. Its the only thing stopping me from making an army of them.

This chick from the Dark Eldar - she looks like some horrible truckstop skank
or the "wily seductress" from some third rate B-movie...

(In general I don't like the dark eldar - they look like bad saturday morning cartoon villians)

Makes me imagine legions of Dark Eldar being defeated by a group of 4 Kommandoz with the catchphrase "Kowabunga Doodz!"

02-09-2007, 02:16
I wouldn't say these models are ugly just outdated, namely the Eldar warp spiders (lacking lots of detail up to the new models and very top heavy) the old Chaos special characters are still nice looking but are starting to look a bit short compared to newer stuff (Abaddon should tower over even Terminators!)

Actually, those Dark eldar wyches didn't look to good now that I think of it...

warchild9
02-09-2007, 02:44
I had to do with chaos....Bile, Doomrider, possessed, the old nurgle amrines as a whole the worse but elder mainly Dark come close and Lemartes is just a piece of $h!t and Along with Capt. Cortez

I'll go with the standard SM. I mean come on guys how static can you get?

A close second is the Dark Eldar, but having seen what they been doing for the Eldar lately I know that the new line of DE will be amazing.

Hellbore
02-09-2007, 07:55
i went with WitchHunters for the Arco-flagellates
the models are actually ugly, not just terrible

It HAS to be Eldar [including dark eldar], especially the ******* Dark space elves

Angelwing
02-09-2007, 13:18
As a range, its the dark eldar for me.
Individual models, I'll avoid the obvious and nominate the old plastic plague marines.
Many posters are nominating models that are simply outdated compared to the rest of the range that the models belong in, which doesn't mean they are ugly/bad sculpts. eg metal ogryns, atilian roughriders

02-09-2007, 15:34
Lemartes, because that model is just horrible.

I rest my case.

02-09-2007, 15:36
Ork vehicles.

Edit: Ork Bikes, then. :)

SanguinaryDan
02-09-2007, 16:08
Lemartes is the ugliest, hands down. Other models may have bad poses or bad sculpts, but he's got it all. Not only are bits misproportioned but he looks like he's run into a wall. I can just see him plastered to the side of a building like feakin' Bugs Bunny.

paddyalexander
02-09-2007, 16:19
Remember that the dark eldar warriors were revelutionary at the time they were released. They can still look great depending on how they're painted. The Mandrakes & Grotesques are terrible sculpts however. My friends' army of them look fantastic and he did an amazing job of painting them.

The worst models in the current range are the riders on ork bikes, the crew of Trukks & Buggies and the Slaver.

I really don't like the Vostroyans(sp?) Imperial Guard models. IG desparatly need new sculpts for Rough Riders and Ratlings.

Bassik
02-09-2007, 16:19
I guess I'm the only one who likes the metal possessed, then.
*hugs his models*
Don't worry guys, I still loves ya.


The ugliest model I have ever seen was some kind of space wolf character... not even the amazing paintjob it had could make it betther.
It still hurts.

Firstandonly14
02-09-2007, 16:23
yeah, lemartes is defiantly one ugly son of a motherless goat. *shudder*

And the rough riders are pretty rough as well.... :(

xibo
02-09-2007, 17:32
I was drawing 40k komiks lately, and nurgle stuff is *really* ugly...
but then, the new stealth suits of the tau empire look like s**t, most squat stuff sucks, captain sicarius and captain sicarius with jetpack - no wait he's called raptor champion, old terminators and of cause dark eldars suck, too...

but none can mess with... the metal possessed. They are so disgusting my eyes hurt whenever I have to take a look on them.

So my vote goes to ... Spiked Power Armours.

Adra
02-09-2007, 17:44
I remeber a while ago there was a special CSM released in one of the box sets...cant remember which one but the model had like tenticles coming out of its head and one strange foot. looked bloody aweful. thinking about it now....i cant stop laughing :D

The_Dragon_Rising
02-09-2007, 18:33
I don't know that i can say any of the models are ugly, sure some of them are unappealing but most are works of art however i voted SMurfs because they a so bland and unexciting to look at.

Horus's Last Hope
02-09-2007, 19:06
Lictors are pretty boring. The book portrays them as highly agile "Bio-Machines" of death. However, thier large arm thingies would be so heavy and snap if they were anything close to realistic. A bit like michael jackson i suppose!

I've just realised - The poll is stupid. How the hell can you combine the beauty of the Eldar with the ugliness of the Dark Eldar? Why not combine WH/DH with SM or something, I mean c'mon, they all use the same vehicles. But Eldar and Dark Eldar!?

Stormtrooper Clark
02-09-2007, 22:42
I'd say the Cities of Death Possesed but because Dark Eldar have so many hidious (Because they are out of date obveously) models I had to pick them.

What is beautiful about eldars, you xenos lowlife? But I agree, teaming WH&DH would have made more sence than high eldar with dark eldar...

I guess it's because of GW's marketing: there are
- xenos(WD says xenos=armies with no armour vs heavy bolter= orks,nids,tau,dark eldar,eldar,guard)
- the witches and the witch hunters ( inquisition & latd although latd could be xenos too )
- generic marines(blue ones that is, together with undead ones and black painted chaos marines)
- red chaos marines
- green chaos marines
- purple chaos marines
- blue chaos marines
- black imperial space marines
- green imperial space marines
- red imperial space marines
- blue imperial space marines
- metallic not so really chaos space marines ( those with lascannons )
- metallic not so really imperial space marines ( those with naginatas )
- whatever army got reworked lately( or shall i say whatever army wins in WD battle reports? ) which is very likely to be space maries

You see, most armies are SM, so it's obvious that marines arent put together with inquision.

Dark eldar, their rules, really aren't that bad at all. More people would play them if their models weren't so damn horrible to look at. Only the Talos is a good model all else just looks bad.

2nd runner up is the current ogryns.

Definantly Lemartes, most of his model is OK by me, its just his terrible helmet
