|Everything came in a big bag. I dumped it out and this is what I had.|
|The main reason I bought this lot was for the space marines for my kids to paint.|
It looks like mostly metal miniatures from Second Edition. There is an Assault Squad (metal jump packs!), Devastators (metal heavy weapons!) and a few random tactical marines, scout sergeant and characters. Those metal jump packs and heavy weapons make for some really unstable models, which is not so great for kids, unfortunately.
|Bonus: four metal and one plastic space orks from Second Edition. Great memories here!|
|Some interesting chaos marines. Two terminators, four Deathguard, and three and a half Berserkers (a couple are missing their heads, unfortunately).|
|The old Deathguard are actually really cool models. In some ways, better than the over-the-top new ones.|
|And a one-armed assassin. Another great model that is unfortunately missing pieces.|
The Space Marines and Orks have obviously improved immeasurably in the last 25 years. But I really like the old Chaos and Assassin models and I think they have stood the test of time. Assuming the paint stripping works, I will definitely use that assassin as some sort of conversion. And I think I could use quite a few of the chaos bits for Horus Heresy conversions. My kids will enjoy painting the space marines. The only useless models will be the orks, although I may paint one just out of nostalgia.
