Billy Bunter's Excellent Collection Of Painted Citadel Goodness!


As regular readers will know, I have been spending quite a bit of 'Little Men Time' (as my wife calls it) trawling the internet researching Citadel's output. During my cyber travels I often stumble across blogs, sites or images that I feel would be of interest to other enthusiasts. I like to post links to quality Old School as often as I find them.

I recently discovered the collection of Billy Bunter. And what a collection it is... Many of the limited edition and unreleased models I have been discussing are part of his collection but, unlike many of us, his collection is actually painted.

Here are a few personal highlights from his collection

STAR WARS STORM TROOPER

I included this rare model in a recent post, and here it is painted to a remarkable standard. Looking at this paint job makes me wish that Lucas and Ansell could have come to an agreement as a 1980s GW Star Wars game would have been incredible.
BABY ZOAT WITH POLE

This model is a bit of a mystery it seems. Was it designed for 28mm or 15mm? What was the purpose of the strange looking pole? Answers on a postcard...

ZYGOR SNAKE ARMS 

An early chaotic character this one, I was really impressed with the paint job on this one. The red, black and white of the snakeskin is really effective. I should make more reference to the natural world with my painting. 
WHITE DWARF AT 90

Special release to celebrate 10 years of GW and issue 90 of White Dwarf. The original and best Grombindal models. 
ALPINE DWARF SKIER 

A beautifully presented version of my favourite ever Warhammer model. Exquisite painting with a gloriously natural  look and feel.
The few images I have shared with you are just the tip of the iceberg of what is available for viewing on his site over at CCM. If you want to see more (and his collection includes models right up to 2012) just follow this link.


Enjoy,

Orlygg.

  2. Technically Zygor Snake-Arms should be a shade of green, as he is Night Goblin... technically. I don't know of his spore landed on some Warpstone or if he was spawned too close to the Chaos Wastes.
