In a blatant piece of Bandwagon jumping I thought I'd do a post about my top ten miniatures. The idea started on the oldhammer facebook group and has spread into the blogosphere with Axiom, Orlygg and Chico publishing their own top tens. I'm going to stick to citadel miniatures as it makes my life easier. So in no particular order I present the 10 miniatures that I love the most (at the moment, it'll change next week, I'm fickle like that!)
Agaroth the unwashed. I only became aware of this figure recently. He is from before my time as a wargamer but I fell in love with his skinny little viciousness. He is a half-orc and looks the part, just a mean, sneaky little bastard.Cheetors version. He just screams techno-barbarian to me. Some barely civilised space-ball with a bad attitude and nasty weapons. Every bad guys dangerous muscle man.
This is a figure I remember painting when I was a kid. He is a Strider/ Aragorn figure by Citadel. I remember thinking that the sword was really sharp! Such a cool figure, his slight downward gaze and his fencing pose and long hair just suggest that there is so much more to the dark stranger that you've met in a bar.
The Ambull. Nuff said.
Finally, Chaos Champion with Bone Armour. I don't own this guy yet but it's not through lack of trying. He is just the right kind of evil bastard that I want leading my chaos army when I get round to painting it. The bare head hints at the figures past as a human being but also the transforming power of chaos. He is at once wizened and powerful. Perhaps only motivated by whatever hate he has left for his enemy.
There you go. That is my Top 10 at the moment. Hope you enjoyed it and I hope I reminded you of some of the great figures that citadel have released over the years.
