Old Stuff Day 2017

Old Stuff Day is wrapping up so I sneaking this in before the day closes.  This special day was started over at Warhammer 39,999 a few years back.  We bloggers post our wares and within a few days our posts fade into obscurity.  Old Stuff Day is a way to bring past post back into the light of their former glory.  Okay, I’m exaggerating former glory a wee bit.  I want to highlight a couple of my posts as well as give out to another bloggers post that has given me some inspiration.


I have upgraded my camera and plan on going over all my old posts to update the photos.  The only archived post that I have any updated photos for is Hector Rex so conveniently Mr. Rex will be my subject for Old Stuff Day.  This post was published July 4, 2015.  I couldn’t resist the pull of purchasing Hector Rex when the model was released by Forgeworld.  It was a gem to paint and I was pleased with the end result.  This was also the most red I have painted on one model so it was good to expand my painting skills.


My second post involves a life lesson.  Dave at Confessions of 1 40K Addict posted a 40K life hack 40K life hack when using shades.  It’s a quick post and I recommend checking it out.  I should have heeded his advice because a few days later I did exactly what he warned about.  I mention it briefly in my Aquila Strongpoint WIP.


Just a short post for Old Stuff day.  Thanks for reading.



  1. Awesome stuff, love that model and some great basing there too!

    • I’m a big fan of the base. It suits Rex. I bought it from Fantascape, who is now defunct. What a shame. I would have stocked up if I knew they were closing shop. 95% of my Carcharodon bases are from Fantascape as well.
