Surprisingly I have done only a small portion of the Old Folk. There are some I don't even recall seeing..there are lots of things I don't recall at my age. Those I did do bring back memories though.

You have done quite a FINE job on them all. OUTSTANDING WORK, Egg!

Batch #8 

 

This is the last of batches I'd had prepped up before I started this thread.   They'll be coming out a little more slowly from now on - I'd imagine anyway.  Nevertheless,  I'm pretty impressed with myself.  I pounded out nearly a hundred decently painted figs inside of the three month period I spent rummaging through my boxes of reclaimed miniatures - and I wasn't even keeping track of my output.  I'm not sure if I can maintain that pace from here on in, but it does go to show that you can pump out quite a bit of work if you're not worrying about everything being 100% perfect.  That being said, my 1980's self (and probably quite a few others) would have been more than thrilled to have turned out this level of work for the tabletop.

 

More as they come.

I know what you mean about the reaction of your former self...I've been painting some even earlier figures lately, and I was thinking that they weren't anywhere near as ugly as they seemed when painted with enamels and terrible brushes.

That would be FM-34 Death Demon from Asgard Miniatures.  They do come up on eBay from time to time.  However, I may have an extra in one of the crates 'o' figs that I have lying around.  Will let you know if I find one.

Wonderful work on every single one! Your brushwork is tidy, and I like your careful use of color. :) It's fun to see so many retro minis!

 

If in the future you could make a new Show-off thread for each new batch, it would make it much easier for the mods to look through. Thanks!

 

Huzzah!
