Original Imperial Guard Sentinels

A few years ago, I found my original IG army and started paint stripping models that I might want to eventually repaint. These two sentinels were part of that effort. First painted decades ago, these guys got a quick lick of paint last night. I didn't want to spend too much time on them, but I wanted them to exist as finished models again. They don't go with any army I have. These guys are just one-offs that will sit in a cabinet and fuel my nostalgia. I just love seeing these old tiny things. A Primaris is almost as tall as these guys. That's how small they are!

Marine CH-46E HMM-265

This helicopter was flown by a friend of mine. It took me a long time to start, but it is finally nearing completion. After building the SWIFT boat for another friend, I was a little skittish about scale models. However, nothing really compares to making a model for a friend. I recommend that everyone give that a shot sometime. We paint up toys in vast quantities, but to paint something with meaning is quite different.
