I've always had a soft spot for classic fantasy models from the 90s and over time I've collected a few.
Most of them are monsters and other creatures now available in Storm of Magic games, so I finally get down to paint them Smile

First, Dieter Helsnicht's Manticore (1994)





Dieter Helsnicht himself is waiting until I buy some Undead models to lead them in a Pact (SoM) or as mercenaries (T&T).

That is one VERY COOL Old Nasty! Other than a vague remembrance from some long lost White Dwarf, I'm unfamiliar with the mini & its rider...lots of the old Citadel stuff never made it across The Pond or, at least, not to my hobby shop haunt. It certainly paints up SPLENDIDLYWELL DONE!   thumbsup

Thanks  cheers  It was a real pleasure to paint. Plastic and resin are so much better for converting, but the feeling of a metal model is something completely different.

And here you have the model in the original Heavy Metal style...not the best quality, but it's the only image available.

Thanks for the photo. That is pretty wild; the early 'Eavy Metal touch is unmistakable. Although it is a classic, it's new to moi...that's a paint job I would never forget.   What a Face

If that was a blast from the past, what about those?

Zoat (1991), a gift from a friend I painted a couple of years ago. Recently I've just added the vegetation



Air Elemental (recast of a 1985 sculpt), this is a pre-slottabase model, so I've added the base

In the last couple of weeks I've indeed been busy Smile

Heart Elemental (recast of 1985 sculpt). Again, I've added just a bit of sculpting for the base.



Stone Trolls (1993).

Some more additions to the vintage gallery.

Cave Drake (recast of a 1985 sculpt)



I just twisted the raised claw, neck and tail to make it a bit more tridimensional and as always sculpted the base.

Water Elemental (recast of a 1985 sculpt)



For this one, the only addition is the base.

EXCELLENT! The Fire Elemental is a SPLENDID mini with a FINE bit of brushwork & basing to add the the appeal. It looks as if the ground around the him is melting...GREAT EFFECT. AND I love Group Portraits. VERY WELL DONE!   thumbsup

Lovely old sculpts. It is always a pleasure to see somebody actually painting these old classics instead of just posting them on ebay for ridiculous amounts.

Great work!

@Alex: no chance of me doing that! If it was not for these old models (and the Elementals' appearance as illustrations on HeroQuest magic cards) I'd never got into the hobby. No money can match this value Wink

@Alan: good! The melting effect was exactly what I was looking for  cheers

Not Monsters, but indeed vintage Wink

Dwarf Quarreler and Thunderer (1994)



And now some stuff I painted a while ago.

Ogre (1994) & Snotling (1993)



Squigs, including (first on the left) Gobbla (1993). I must also have Skarsnik back in Italy...


Savage Orc Shaman (1993). This had its hands swapped for bits from the current plastic Orcs.



Doom Diver Catapult (1993)



Night Goblin Archers, Command Group, Netters and Big Boss (1993)


Plague Monks Command Group (1995)


Plague Censer Bearers (1995)


Skaven Assassin (1995)


Boneripper (1995)




And for a while, there would be no more pics for this gallery. I've painted all the Fantasy vintage stuff I have in the UK Very Happy
