The first picture I posted was of my Harlequin Jet Bike. Harlequins were probably my first purchase for Rogue Trader. My Godmother lives in Canada and we went on a family holiday to visit. At the time my obsession with GW was absolute and I had my latest White Dwarf with me that I insisted on shoving under the nose of any and all that showed an interest.
Eventually we found an independent stockist of Citadel miniatures and I came out of a place more likely to sell scented candles than figures. I have to say there were some strange looks on the airport security staff when that box of figures went through the X-Ray!
Below are the figures I bought, painted in varying degrees. Eventually they were sold on ebay and although there are some I now regret this was not one of them. I still like the figures and the premise, although now I understand they're part of the new Dark Eldar codex, but I thought they deserved a more loving home.
|The completed part of my Harlequin troupe.|
|The full ebay lot, including unpainted miniatures and a free Swooping Hawk [which I loved].|
|Death Jester inspired Eldar dreadnought.|
|The joker on his jetbike - batdance!|
|Some of the better painted 'quins.|
|Death Jesters, I love 'em. tried to be clever with a 'milky' wash on the shuriken cannons.|
|Average quality 'quins, some of my first attempts. The Riddler is on the left and the middle pose is awesome thanks to the Milliput 'hillock'.|
|These were unfinished at the time of sale.|
