Citadel Combat Cards
I had completely forgotten about these until I came across a recent post over on the Impossible Fortress. We used to play with these in the early 90s, and when I remembered than there was a "Spacewar" featuring Rogue Trader-era minis I was straight off to eBay to procure a set.
RTB01 Tactical Squad to make this one. I remember him well from the Rogue Trader rulebook, and this paint job harks back to the days when marines were allowed camouflage.
LE2 Imperial Space Marine and other Rogue Trader Era Limited Editions
It was only a matter of time before I wanted to paint the first ever Space Marine, and here he is, complete with 80s stlye hex base. This example actually looks like it is white metal rather than lead, but it is definitely the sculpt I was after so I don't mind that this one was produced later.
Stuff of Legends page that catalogues the limited edition releases around the same time. I am planning to collect and paint a few of these, including the LE9 Space Skeleton which I've managed to track down (though I don't actually have my hands on him yet).
So there you go, two new projects to add to the painting backlog. For my own benefit more than anything else, here is a list of all the ongoing projects that I am currently working on:
- 1995 Orlocks
- Space Ork Raiders
- Space Marine Captains
- A small Vostroyan Army
- Tau Army (modern)
- Salamanders Army (modern but includes some vintage minis, and mostly complete)
Finally, here is a bonus picture of 40k Cat helping me to take these photos.
