I'd take a guess at Second edition - or at the very latest start of 3rd ed.

So about 9 or 10 years old.

I have alot of the old 2nd edition PMs. in some ways I like them more. The asp champ always has and will be one of my most favorite models. I use the plasmas all the time in my army. They fit the part very well without the pain of conversion. 2nd edition takes me waayyyyy back (I think I was 5), now if they put foulspawn in the new CSM codex................ >

LOL @ Beast of Nurgle. A member of my gaming group spend 3 hours painting one of those once, and it still looked as bad as the one on that site.

Those are 2nd edition mini's, as has been mentioned. The "multi-flamer" is really a multi-melta. Chaos was hit and miss regarding the mini's back then- with the rogue trader variants leaning more towards the "miss" side.

I miss the old Noise Marine mini's- those were hilarious. Bascially a space marine with an electric guitar which was stolen by your kid sister and painted ala Rainbow Brite.

The Great Unclean one back in the day looked like what Lisa to did to Chet in the movie "Weird Science".

To bring this back to the modern day- I think the current possessed models need to be sent back to 1989 because they look as bad as the models of the time.

Disagree somewhat, the old PM models are very colorful and fit in well even now (I use them). Granted I wouldn't have an army of just them, but they do work perfectly. Hell, the old aspiring champ (I use one) IMO is better then the current one. However, a DG army is a conversion opportunity to good to pass up.

I also have a number of old Plague Marines in my Nurgle army, and I like them in some respects more then the new Plague Marines .
