Long-time readers might remember this Marine. He was part of a Starter paint set that my wife Jo and I reviewed back in April 2012. I stumbled upon him the other day and I thought it wouldn't take much to bring that old paint job in line with my current Dark Angel army. All I had to do was repaint the armour, eyes and base. Took about an hour in total and gives me that small burst of that feel good feeling of hobby achievement. I know Stahly is undertaking a mammoth repaint of his Ultramarines, but how about you? Would you consider repainting and updating your old miniatures? Tell me in the comments .
