The idea that Orks would construct an Eldar Guardian lookalike is just another reason to love that late 80s/early 90s fun element to the Warhammer universe. Such a daft idea, and a required part of any oldhammer army. They only made three models in this range - Eldar, Squat and Space Marine (https://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Tinboyz).
Another golden oldie from my box of "what the heck is this". When White Dwarf was revived as a monthly magazine, this was given away with the first issue - which was remarkably good value for a £6 magazine. He's far from a perfect paintjob, and the shadows and reflections are not consistent at all, but I used him as a tester for some of the colours I want to apply to the Eldar force, and it's nice to have a few standalone projects to try these things. No basing scheme yet, but I think he may get something similar to Chopper Bob from a few months ago, as it could be fun to have a Khorne warband with a bit of a theme.
When I came back to painting in 2015, I picked up a few pirates from Black Scorpion. Thought the sculpts were nice, and wanted to paint something not related to Warhammer ... and who doesn't love pirates? Well, fast forward six(ish) years and I'm painting another set of pirates from Black Scorpion. Here's the first one finished up. As a comparison, here's a now and 2016 shot. Now, 2016 me was fine, it's neat and tidy and colour in the correct place, and your view may vary but I like how my style has developed in the last five years.
