Warhammer 40,000 25th Anniversary Model
You'll not see too many 40k posts on the Mumblings.
The last time I played any serious 40k was late 2nd early 3rd edition, when Vortag's Chaos Renegades and my Legion of the Damned army had their heyday. I've long since laid down the bolter in favour of the sword, though I did actually start out with with 3rd edition Warhammer, which was released about the same time as 1st edition 40k, the same year I got into the hobby.
So it was a surprise to me that I bought a 40k miniature yesterday, the 25th Anniversary model.
The reason is probably the fact I love the old rogue trader cover so much. I played the bejesus out of 1st edition 40k too, and I love beaky marines. All this together adds up to 'one please', and a good thing too, the bleeder is sold out already.
He looks like a good un', and it'll be weird painting something with a gun. He'll be my second finecast miniature, (the first one, Krell, was 95% perfect) fingers crossed he'll not be deformed when I open the pack.
