It was mentioned on another thread about older models and the prices and it got me trying remember what the first 40k miniature I bought was and how much I paid.
I honestly cannot remember at the moment what I got first but.........

What was the first 40k mini you ever bought?
How much did you pay? (If you can remember.)

A Marine squad for 3rd edition with ten terminator honours shoulder pads because I thought I'd make that my chapter badge (I know I know!).

Those guys were dark angels for a couple of years but transferred into the red scorpions where they continue to serve. (Albeit once a year).

Mine was the old paint sets where you got the basic paints and a squad. I orginalyl had them painted up as Crimson Fists but repainted them as Ultramarines.

I have no idea where he is now.

Ah good times. *Wipes Tear*

Over ten years ago and It was the only model I brought at that time, cool looking space marine Jetbike type model. Haven't got a clue where It ended up though? :?

My first ever 40k mini was a necron warrior that was from the 12 man box set which at the time was £15.

The first 40K models I ever purchased were three plastic Tyranid Warriors, the kind that had oval heads and, for lack of a better word, stingers. You know, I remember thinking they looked kinda goofy even back then. Their buckteeth and boneswords are safely stashed away in a shoebox somewhere in my closet, shamefully hiding their garish glossy-orange paintjobs from the world.

The first models I bought were probably the RTB01 Marines.

The first WD I bought was about issue 110 ( It was one with a purple border and marine colour schemes in side.)

My local Games Workshop used to do promotions where the person who bought in the earliest WD would win a box set or some such. There was a chap who kept winning with an issue 4.
The store manager was getting a bit bored of the same person winining this ( espeacially since it was about the only time the guy went in.)
So I borrowed my Uncles copy of this

Never saw the guy again :lol:

My first ever 40k mini(s) were a box of Ork Boyz.

Four left now because my brothers kept ruining them, would of had a battle force, but my brother stepped in and wanted to get some SM
