Throwback: My Vampire Counts ca. 1999-2001

I decided to dust off some old figures that haven't seen the light of day in a while. Apart from using some of the undead in Warhammer Quest games these haven't seen the outside of their case since maybe 2005 or so.

This was the first army I painted to completion. I started doing these after getting rid of my first orc army in the 90's. It was still fifth edition and I started doing this for the first vampire counts book in about 1999 and finished maybe 2001 for sixth. The painting is suitably crude, especially the bases, but they're still usable. I remember being a fan of Romero movies back then and it definitely shows in the zombies. I remember having a blast painting them.

This army used to have a grave guard unit with halberds but someone paid me silly "rare-money" for those so I gave them up.

3D-printed microarmor

First finished models for 2019!
Here are three 3D-printed StuG's and one traditional metal one. You can still see the print layering on the tanks but it's only visible up close and in bright light. Very happy with my Anycubic photon!
