Warhammer 40K was the first wargames system we played and some of the first figures I had painted. I haven't played 40K for at least 12-13 years now having then moved onto Warhammer and then later we found Flames of War and other interests to move on to. We both still have a small hand in Warhammer Fantasy games with a vast collection between us both of the old 5th edition Chaos Dwarves (with tall top hats) with over 4000 points worth at a guess of the evil stunties at hand. Also Andy has a Flying Bretonnian force that is based on WW1 German bi-planes, and two Choas Deamon forces being Nurgle and Khorne , but these days the Fantasy models very rarely see the table top - too busy playing board games and Saga games !!
But mostly for nostalgic purposes (and for my own records more than anything) I thought I would record the many conversions we both did on our armies before they get sold off. So have taken some photos of, to share.
1st up is Andrews Warhammer 40K Emperors Children (Noise Marines) Army. Andy had used some very bright colours with this force as be fitting the theme of these guys, bright pink and yellows and blues and these chaps are proud of them.
Hilarious with outrageous colours I had almost forgot how bright this army was !
Andy had won best painted army with this force back in the day of competing with this army and its easy to see why as his conversion and painting work is all top notch.

|His Chaos Lord and Chaos Sorceror|
|Noise Marines - Blast Masters and Doom Sirens|
|Converted Chaos Rhino with Sonic blaster added|
|Choas Lord Biker on heavy converted Outstretched Wheels - Bad Arse|
|The Very Pink Land Raider - complete with Lego radar scanners !|
Next up is my Night Goblin Force, It was a complete night Goblin force with not an Orc insight - my highest leadership was with my Night Goblin Lord with Ld 7 !!

these units my the punch of my army
(well that's if it didn't run away that is)
Also here is some of the remaining 40K Orks I kept from my vast collection I had in the days of old , mostly the Warlord and his bodyguard unit left - with me selling the rest off, many moons ago.
