How many Obliterator sculpts has Gw done/ produced?
Am I correct in thinking there were 3 original ones, and 2 new style sculpts?
thanx

There were 3 ugly ass ones when rules first came out for them, look here at the picture:

Then we got the current 2 models which were a huge step up.

So 5 total yes.

aesthetically, these are better than the current range... update these to bring them in line with today's quality of sculpts, and they are all win

Haha! I agree, but I also think the current oblits are nice. (Opinion withheld on the CC variety, whatever they're called. Manglers or something?)

A better paint job would do these old minis wonders. Are those on 25mm bases?

yeah, they were back when terminators were still on 25mm bases.
