My first painted model?? It was a bretonnian. Back from before I even played Warhammer or even knew the rules. It was before I started playing Empire and all that.

Here he is...

A bretonnian standerd bearer. It's so old that the standard fell off... It was from a Bretonnian Men at arms command blister pack.

My first painted model was when I was 6 (yes, 6) and is such an ugly blob of paint I think that I'd break my camera trying to paint a picture of it.

wish i still had pics of my first ones. I did some Orcs for Heroquest back in '92 or '93 i think and if memory serves, they weren't so good... (I remember telling a friend at that time, "what the heck do I need more than one brush for?"... I needed more than one brush it turns out

The minis from my lead mountain have been stripped for repainting but my first WH mini that I painted was a chaos warrior
