Well they're good for their time and all but honestly they don't hold a candle to VGM Elites and Tainted figures available now from the KS. This was more about finalizing a long overdue project.

In other news finally able to get the termies and scouts and tacts dealt with so yay back to doing real hobby stuff

These look really good. Nicely proportioned and I imagine easy to paint.

Are you saying these are older sculpts? They still look very nicely posed to me!

VGM are better technically (print and mini detail, there's a softness to the CAD-marines ive seen) but that lot are better posed and proportioned. Depends what sort of modelling and painting style you go for. Great to see you reached some 'closure' :D

Well in order to create them the original prints did end up dying in the end. [pours 40 out for his little homies]

You do have a point that the poses are grand. Harry Kale was a master of using Poser with the designs.

I painted a thing. It's not much of a thing but I did it and more importantly, after being on a 4 month hobby rut that I just had no desire nor mojo to do anything during. And I feel that is a win.

So had a set of those little cute not-power loaders from the Solar Empire Marines line that I had always intended to hack up and use as a part of the ruined Ad Mech factory on page 2 for additional theme. A bit of hacking it from the plinth base, bending the components to give it a nice 'I've Fallen and I can't get up' flair, and I think it's a fun addition to some very old painting project.

(and I actually did a thing)

I disagree completely that the Vanguard Elites are better than those sculpts. In fact I think those sculpts are amazing.

Like the not alien Loaders! :)

I also agree that those marines are much nicer, I would be very happy to buy models like that over the VGM ones.

Those are absolutely wonderful! The lack of any space marine proxies that I like is what's holding me back from diving into Epic. That, and I'm worried that right after I throw a bunch of money into Epic, FW will start producing HH infantry to go along with Adeptus Titanticus.

Anyway, thanks for sharing those pics.
