I have two myself and one was found on ebay which was much cheaper than the one I ordered from the U.S. Mail order via Legion4.  It had missing parts that I was able to order extra to fix the problem.

I will seek them out and take a photo as soon as possible

Hi!

I got a couple of those dropships Heresiarch, but they are at the painters. So until they get back, no pics. :(

Primarch

Only a couple? ???? ?:p ?:laugh:

Hi!

Only three (I think...).

I like the newer transport ships a lot more.

Actually I use these old models as a porxy for the praetorian size IG transport ship.

next up is a group photo.
The Eldar Titan is painted by Mike Mcvey - White DWarf 143 (UK)
The Warp Runners are by Phil Lewis ?- White DWarf 120 (UK)
Hellbore by Tim Prow- White Dwarf 144(UK)
and apparent Ally Morrison painted the Land Raider and ork vehicle

http://netepic.org/DOUG/journal%20updat ... inters.jpg

Unfortunately I am missing 1 warlord and 1 scout titan. ?When being packed to be sent to me the guy had drop both and they need extensive repair. ?That was nearly a year ago and unfortunately I havent seen them yet. I wait and hope.

Wow!

I almost had a heart attack here.
Sorry to barge in but I just need to express my gratitude for showing the Titans.

If I am not mistaken these are the ones from the dioramas created for the publicity of the first edition of Space Marine?

Hi!

Yes, those warlords are in the color prints of the codex titanicus. The hellbore is is the painted one in the second edition armies of the imperium book.

The phantom looks like the one from the first second edition battle report (WD 144 or there abouts).

Lots of history there.

I got 2 of the rare Drop Ships for next to nothing from my buddy who worked at G/W at the time and you could order them from Archives a few years back as I did for Doug.  But like most Archive items, prices were crazy !  Did Jimbo or someone post a pic of this rare Ship at one time ?! ???

It was a little luck for my part but suffice to say I dont regret buying these.  I know of a few other painted models like these but have to wait til september before I can find out more about these.

Still here is the metal gargant that never made production at all and the sculpter no longer has the master. Or wont sell it.  Suffice to say this was the only cast and its resin in the middle and metal on the outside.

front:

back
http://netepic.org/DOUG/journal%20updat ... 20rear.jpg

never came with feet or arms ... that was all that I got

Thanks a lot for these photos Doug- one of my favourite parts of the hobby is the 'history' behind the models and all the odd things that were or weren't released....

If I had more money I would collect the rarities and limited editions GW has produced over the years, but, as I don't, buying old WDs, delving through them, picking up old GW games and figs I can afford, and reading the Collecting Citadel Miniatures Yahoo list keeps me happy...  :;):

Interesting head on that Gargant- rather catlike by my eyes!

Hi!

I think I posted one of it unassembled, but I'm not sure.

Hi Denis,

Yep you are correct those are the exact ones, though they are missing 1 warlord and 1 scout due to a packing accident although I never paid for them of course. ?Those need to be repaired unless they have been already which means I need to check up on it.
There were more Reaver titan warp runners by Mike Mcvey which I am also in the process of getting hold of but nothing yet in my hands so to speak so its only trades 'in progress'. ?I may have news in September sometime. ?The guy has had a stroke and a couple of operations so far this year and its been kinda hard on him so I am waiting for a while and hoping to his better health as he is a good friend.


Stormseer:
Yep the head is a little strange with rather pointy ears although I like the way the head itself has more character than the normal ones. ?
I also like the history and every time I have the chance I snap models up painted and all. ?So this is a very special hobby for me! ?The old White dwarfs are excellent read for ideas and epic stuff. ?A damn good read.

I will try and get some photos done maybe tomorrow and find the pieces tonight. ?The light is rather bad over here where its dark and raining.

Just opened up a parcel from Forgeworld which had the Taros Campaign.

As a quick glance there are nice photos both colour and black and white  The Epic Tau are included with extras in there like :

Heavy Drones
Remote sensor tower (40k version released)
Great Knarloc
Tiger shark variant

Not sure if this is for completeness sake or that FW will release them later.

Hi!

I agree old WD's were good reads. Thats why I still keep those old back issues even though I havent bought WD for over 8 years.

I got 2 of the rare Drop Ships for next to nothing from my buddy who worked at G/W at the time


Why do I inevitably find out about such things 5-10 years too late.... :p

Hi!

Dont feel too bad. Had it not been for several regulars here (Mojarn being the major one for me), I myself would lack quite a few of these things as well.

You are right. ?I'm in the middle of a modelling frenzy and am surrounded by blisters, sprues, metal and plastic bitz and WIPs. ?I cant complain too loudly I guess!

For now anyway.... ?:D
