I recently posted a set of my old 2nd edition models and the 1980s paint jobs that accompanied them.
When I got back into the hobby just a couple of years ago my painting level was roughly equal to what's in the set. One of the models was even painted in 2008! It's nice to see what a bit of practice and access to folks on the intarwebs can do for a fella.
This model - for those that don't know - is the original Ghazghkull Thraka. Really.
