Guess the horns were too small on the first one? WTF

@Harwammer: Yes, there's a mild resemblance because the blue one appears to be a conversion of the green on.

Look at the leg armour; ok, the feet are slightly more buried in the base on the latter, but it has the same cleft foot, leg wrappings and armour design.
The pose is the same, the armour is the same. The helmet and cape are merely an extension of what there is on the original.

This all leads to but one question; what the hell was wrong with the original.

Are you sure it's not the other way around?

The green one is a model done by Martin Footit (I think...) and was featured in an article about him in WD a while ago. That suggests to me that it's the original.
Also, it's easier to add stuff than to take stuff away.

I was just about to post this.

I think I prefer the green one, original or not. The GD one looks too overdone, they've doubled the horns, doubled the shoulder skulls, doubled the axe...

'Course, doesn't matter, since us convicts don't have a GD anymore, one has to paint a pretty model and go to Sydney.

They had to redo it. The old one is very much the 6th ed. look, while the new carries the old-school 7th ed. bling.

The green one is undoubtedly superior, and I certainly hope it's one of Martin Footit's. His work is by far some of my favorite from GW.

Probably it's a multi part-kit? or they changed stuff to make it more 'special' :P But if i'm not mistaken the last one is french-painted ie. the NMM...we'll wait and see a propper nice pic when the UK team paints one up :P
