DRAGON OGRE SHAGGOTH

im not sure why i am so drawn to this model. Im a huge fan of dragons (in and out of warhammer) love them. And the whole pose and the top half of this beast is just great. I dont like the dragon-ogre models at all, look too old and not cool enough to me, but the shaggoth... :wub:

also these, him and him

I certainly agree, the state troops are cool models. It seems with every new army book that comes out the models keep getting better and better (in my eyes at least). Since about the time of wood elves, the models have been improving greatly for fantasy. The new night goblin bosses are amongst my favorite too. In fact, the lords for almost all the latest armies are great center peice models. The shaggoth, however, wins my vote my miles.

Not seen that harelquin before, but i love that wood elf too (i painted it for the army me and my brother have). I did green swirls all over its lighter-green cloak, looks good ^_^ i agree once again, a good model, though no match for my cute shaggoth

The Wood Elf is very nice, like all WE models, but i'm not so keen on the Harlequin (?), mainly because i'm not such a big fan of 40k models. Swap the gun for a sword and it would be great! :P

The shaggoth is one of GW's greatest models ever. My fave models are:
asrai lord with bow(though this paintjob does it no credit)

and

Bret Trebuchet
(because I'm a fan of Trebuchets, and there's something cool about a warmachine built out of a church :D)

Back to retirement!

My favourite by a long shot is the Bretonnian Green Knight. Fantastic model. Im waiting until my painting skills improve before I paint him!

The Wood Elf with Great Weapon is also very nice, but would be a few down the list for me...

As for the Empire State Troops, I dislike them with a passion. Theyre all in the same pose and the Standard bearer is holding the huge banner in one hand! I definately plan to buy the rest of my Empire army from Ebay so I can get the OOP models...
But everyone's entitled to their opinions, so Ill be quiet on the matter now :)

This is an opinion thread, so don't be quiet!

I am a fan of pretty much every model that people have said is their "favorite." The one exception is the woodie that Scriv posted, as I have never seen a picture of it aside from the one presented--and it just looks to cluttered to see any good detail.

I just love the look of this fellow! It brings back childhood memories of Jurassic Park!

As much as I hate to admit it, I agree with Lughti. Although I do like the war Hydra too...

I don't know why but lately i've been quite fond of these miniatures.

Yes I know they are all chaos. But I think chaos have some of the nicest mini's. I'm also quite fond of most of the WE range along with the majority of the ogres.


btw for my chaos army i'm doing, I'm mounting the character from the first picture into a chariot! and My army's leader is going to be the second photo.

Definitely the new Dark Angels stuff, especially the new Master of the Ravenwing.

Followed closely by the Skaven assassins and Deathmaster Sniktch ^_^
