Well, there is no doubt at all about the "classic" status of this guy! I have about a dozen of these really old figures. This was done as a gift for a friend who was working on a Sons of Horus army. he had been using this color scheme, so I surprised him when he showed up for a team game.
I enjoyed doing this so much, I may have to try it out on some of the Forgeworl Pre Heresy guys.
