Fun post today while I am still basing some classic citadel for my next big Chaos Beastman post, I was inspired by the many posts I see on the Facebook wargames trading type groups, you know the sort "can you identify these miniatures for me, oh and tell me their value, oh and now I know what they are worth do you fancy giving me Ebay 'buy it now' prices for them" :D Anyway joking aside they are not for sale or trade. My painting time is severely restricted now due to our new baby in the house and I tend to only paint things that warm my heart like classic citadel miniatures from my teenage years. I started collecting miniatures when I was eleven years old after becoming bored with plastic Airfix, Matchbox, etc and seeing all the exciting D&D stuff that was coming out at the time and over the years I have acquired, traded, inherited and sold a lot of miniatures but I always tend to hang on to interesting miniatures hoping to strip and paint one day, thirty two years on and I was looking through some stored boxes of sci-fi miniatures for some Confrontation miniatures and I thought I wonder who made and sculpted this one and so on and so on. So if you fancy identifying any of these miniatures be my guest, it's for fun and credits will go photos later to those who do and if it generates some interest another post will follow. I do remember some of the manufacturers but some have got me stumped. I am sure all these will be heading for the Dettol one day.
