Not so long ago I was reading an interesting post over on Imperius Dominatus about using old models in 40k. Lots of people have their own opinions on using them, with the main issue being the size, as some of the 'classic' minis are smaller than the new ones. At the same time this post went up, I was coincidently having a good look on eBay to try and find myself some old Necron Destroyer models! I have been looking for some of these for a long time now, but I have never really found any at a bargain price for me to buy them, until now...
So why the old models? Well, I for one don't mind some of the older minis, for me, they are a bit of history, and having never owned or seen the old Destroyer mini, I was actually very excited at having some. OK, the model does look aged, but hey, I still like it. I will probably start these off as stand ins for Tomb Blades, which I think the size and shape of the mini works well for. Then if I manage to find myself another three at a good price, I plan on having a whole unit of these as Destroyers in a Destroyer Wing army I am planning, but what would you say if I turned up with two units of Destroyers, one old unit and one new unit? Would you mind?
