Citadel Goblin Chariots and Out Riders (Pic Heavy)

Recommended Posts

This is the Technicolor Wolf's fault...

 

Here are some Citadel Goblin Chariots and wolf Riders that I painted up back in collage in the '90s...

 

The Box:

Full Crew:

Only the Chariot with the Severed Dwarf head on a spike, and it's body nailed to the tongue got finished for some reason....

This Chariot was a blister pack, with a spell caster goblin as the passenger. Never did paint the crew...

The harnesses on the wolves are more advanced on this model...

And 4 different wolf Riders...

I have the crew for the Spellcaster's Chariot, as well as the other chariot from the box set and it's crew, plus another Box chariot with a 3 wolf team still in the box...

Maybe someday they will see paint....

Notice the boxes say Citadel and not GW?

Ahhhh, the "Machineries of Destruction" range...... These are all great, I remember them from back in the day! Good to see that you didn't hold back on the blood. :poke:

 

Somewhere in the deepest deep parts of my vault, I have the "Goblin King's Battle Chariot" & the "Skull Crusher, Goblin Trebuchet" & I've definitely got that goblin rider with the pole-axe somewhere.

Great stuff, I just bought one of the Battle Chariots on ebay.

The one with the dwarfÅ› head yoke, but with a crewmember wielding a warhammer ( appropiate..right?).

 

I love the older Citadel stuff, also I recently aquired RAFM's Hartha the Death Machine. Orc Triceratops with a bombard on the back.

 

I would love to get my hands on the Citadel leadbelcher or the Undead Chariot from that period.

 

And George, if you got more of those classics painted, show them!!

I still think the old Citadel minis had loads of character.

 

Scrounging through my collection I seem to have 5 old citadel Chaos Hounds.. they need paint.

So much to do...

 

 

On Ebay I have been bidding on some of those very old beastmen, not the goat types...now hoping I can get those for a reasonable price.

 

I mean I got the chariot ( still need to receive it, but I won the auction two days ago) for at least 25% of what I've seen them priced for now.

It's ridicilous what some people charge.

Saw that in the aquisition thread, so I posted these... :lol:

I think I've got that first one around here somewhere!

 

I've accidentally assembled out of bits from various ebay purchases over the years.

      A good friend gave me this out-of-production Tomb King for my birthday last month; it is a fabulously detailed sculpt, with vulture motifs and fancy collars and greaves. My Google-fu is weak, so I don't know its exact designation beyond "Tomb King on foot," but you might know better! 



      I decided to give him a monogrammed cartouche on his tattered robe; I had looked up Neferkasokar for a Call of Cthulhu game previously. 



      I wasn't sure what to make of the tattered stitched-together sheets on his kilt and shield, so I decided they would be papyri with apotropaic ensorcellments and spells. 



      And while I was on the subject, I gave a touch-up to some of the other mummies and ushabtis I'd previously painted.

      The goblins.
      this is a single set containing a small warband of 9 goblins 5 armored two non armored and 1 warlock
      The plan for these is to make Ice goblins.  Going for a blue skin tone and frosted bases.
       
      All of the Armored goblins save for one require assembly.  I was pleasantly surprise how easy they came off the sprues.  Didnt need cutters.  Though you will need to scrape a bit off the tab points but all in all they go together very easily.

      This bad boy is one piece.

      With my Cadian army nearly finished and my wife's army at a playable state I decided to take a break from 40k painting. Since I've been painting for our actual armies for so long I decided to start a new WIP thread rather than use my old random projects thread (the "Too Many Projects" thread will be replaced by this one).
       
      But before getting too far ahead I'd like to show everyone just how bad my box got while painting for 40k and killteam. This of course doesn't include any GW boxes I may or may not have on hand to paint "just for fun". I swear I'll paint those Skaven sooner or later.
       
      Though some of the figures were closer to completion, I simply couldn't resist painting one I've had my eye on for months (I mean this quite literally as the figure sat on my lamp's base since I first got it and probably ended up in the background of many of my progress shots). When I first pulled this from a box of goodwill I knew exactly what I wanted to do. This figure just screamed Don Quixote, at least to me it did. So that's exactly how I painted it and though it may just be a simple paint job I'm already thinking about creating a new character just to use it.
