I have always wanted to recapture some of that hobby magic from my formative years. As much as I love the kits GW are bringing out these days, I have always hankered after those classic figures from the 4th edition Undead book.
I am fortunate in that I have been able to make a start on collecting this 'classic range', and I look forward to being able to share my progress.
These models are from the era that I started getting into the hobby. I spent a lot of time wishing I had these models - my worn out 4th Edition Undead Army Book is a testament to that. And I have many more models yet to reveal.
You might recognise this Gary Morley sculpt. The head is the original one. The story goes that the Marketing dept at the time wanted something more skeletal at the last minute, so he made a joke one, expecting them to reject it and go for the original. They didn't. However, one or two pre-production heads made it out into the wild...
I'm not yet sure what my end goal is. I don't think I will field these on the table, but they will be painted and will have pride of place in my collection display. I plan to use the old 'red era' colouring used by 'Eavy Metal back in the day, rather than going for gritty and realistic.
Massive thanks to @Antipodean7 for hooking me up with these dream models. I really hope I can return the favour someday.
