Thread: Rarest Mini you own

    Default Rarest Mini you own

    Thought I'd break my 12 month hiatus from posting with a simple question.
    What's you rarest mini?
    Now, I'll quickly jump in here that custom greens and commissions don't count, obviously a once-off will be "rare"

    Even old OOP stuff can be considerably more common than you might think, Posting "I have a Grenadier Ultimate Dragon" will result in a torrent of "Me too's"
    So, given my somewhat pedantic requirement,s I'll start.

    My rarest is one of the 51 (last check) Heresy Dragons, posted here for all to see:

    Ilyad Limited Edition Desdemone: http://www.coolminiornot.com/272333?browseid=7210949.

    Or the Ilyad Taurag: http://www.coolminiornot.com/247338?browseid=7210949.

    It's a toss-up.

    I can't for the life of me remember his name or find it online, but I have 2 of the exclusive Confrontation mercenary figure from the old French Ravage magazine. Alzo- Aiona the Unforgiven a "free" figure exclusively from Brookhurst Hobbies.. just spend $150 on Rackham minis. That was basically how I got my resin Mid Nor scourge bearer too.

    the rarest should be my BFG-Dark Eldar ships. As I hate the official models I made them for myself, so they are literally one-of-a-kind
    (also here:
    Custom sculpt of Erza from the Fairy Tail anime and a custom sculpt of a Rarity bust)

    but from official models from companies...
    KD: for quite a while it would've been the WetNurse, but since then it got many re-releases, so maybe the male preacher now
    Conf: Souffre Toile / mailorder templar of hod / mailorder cynwall.
    Freebooter: 2002 spec clockwork fairy / pirate monkey / 2002 XMas mini
    sodapop: the 2 tentacle bento figures (no idea how many sold, but I don't see them at all on ebay / spm site)

    but the rarest would be the HUSH from gigantic miniatures (50 minis are released in the world for now (but more will be made in 2014 and after))

    I think the oldest (not sure whether its rare) is an old, old old Throne of Sauron, minus Sauron unfortunately. However, possibly this is old enough that it should be made of lead. I think the one I have is not lead. Not certain. Could be recast but it certainly isn't that new either. Its buried somewhere and I purchased it for use in a diorama although I doubt I will use it now....

    One of my rare ones I have is a very old GW cat burglar from '83? But otherwise it would be my Studio Mcvey Al-Raavia or Inquisitor Sister Repentia (not seen either painted up.)

    I'm quite keen on collecting old miniatures. But i'd guess it would be the Citadel "chicken" dragon https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=ch...i68nGdbdLpM%3A, GW Malekith on foot https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=ma...XBE2Gr1fMBM%3A, the metal thunderhawks, the citadel great spined dragon https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=gr...AmQKrYk_2LM%3A, the Citadel chaos battering ram, or possibly this old troll (which is my favourite):

    http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-x76GUgQIGS...0/IMG_0222.JPG

    Aside from the citadel /Gw stuff, it'd have to be the vorag miniatures from ilyad, cecilia from anima tactics, and the barbarian dude that has been so popular over the last few months.

    Oh... Hang on a minute (he says glancing round his painting room), what about the armorcast titans? Naff or detail, but buckets of character.

    I'll be honest, captain lol had her on his blog and I fell in love with her. She's like a sexy cute anime vampirella. I have scoured eBay for months and found her. I really don't know who made her but she is a glorious 5" tall!

    To the best of my knowledge its a boxedset by Ral Partha, "Planescape" including the " Lady of Pain" pin badge.
    Pre 1997, as I used refer to my then boss as 'The Lady Of Pain' as she was a right torment, good manager though.

    Oh and the 'Chicken dragon'.

    I have a lot of the Rouge Trader era miniatures. Some include the two original sisters of battle minis from the old adventurers line:

    http://www.solegends.com/citrt/rt601adventurers.htm

    They are the top left mini, and the second from the bottom on left mini. Also have a few others on that page too.

    But, one of my prized minis is the Chaos Lavatory LE model:
