04-12-2012, 11:09
Inspired by some of the threads here on Warseer i had a look through my loft yesterday to see what old things i have up there that I had forgotten about , The results were very interesting. I found a copy of blockwars, rogue trooper the boardgame, a unused set of inks from th eexpert paintset and afew old plastic terminators from the first edition of space hulk. Any one else found a bunch of old gems that they had forgotten about? If so what were they.

Perhaps this isn't the sort of response you would expect, but I found my tyranid army.

Since the release of the 5th ed. 'nid codex, I have been falling in and out of love with my bugs. I haven't been able to make up my mind. After many months in storage, I finally decided to list them on ebay or the trading forum, selling for less than 10 cents a model if that's what it took to get them out of the house.

When I arranged them on the desk for a full army photo, I decided that I actually like them OK and I might as well keep them a little longer.

... Then I put them back in storage. :shifty:

That reminds me, I have a Genestealer cult army around here some where. Now where did I put it is the question.

I found Space Hulk (1st ed) with Death Wing and Genestealer together with a box of the old metal Terminators up in my Mum's loft. Also Advanced Space Crusade and Blood Bowl which I had forgotten I ever owned.

That was a good day...

I have the Rogue Trooper game, 1st ed Space Hulk with Deathwing and Genestealer, The GW Warlock of Firetop Mountain, Chainsaw Warrio. a copy of Talismasn 2nd ed I think plus expansions, Heroquest with extras, I even found the very first mini I painted way back in '86. The oddest old GW game I have is called Kings & Things, and does anyone remember Blood Royale?

Last year while having a bit of a tidy out, I found a carrier bag at the back of my wardrobe stuffed with epic ork stuff, including enough parts, I think, to make 2 mega gargants. Great find, as I love epic.

I discovered an old plastic chaos sorceror that I had stashed around. Thinking of converting him into an Empire amethyst wizard by replacing the chaos symbol on his staff with a scythe blade.

Had a dig in one of my bits boxes yesterday and found some RT imperial army, inquisitor in termie armour, RT orks, a space wolf army I forgot I even bought and a razorback amongst other things. Really should sort the boxes out soon.

It was literally a set of inks....

Not really long lost but while cleaning mine the other day I found while buying models for a dogs of war army i'd bought a box of ogre bulls which was exactly what I was needing to buy for some conversions I have planned.

Oh, I know - I just hadn't got to the stage where I used inks then, they would have been wasted on me at that point in my painting life.
