Back in 2000,
the gang at GW implemented the Skulz rewards program,
where you earned Skulz tokens by ordering through
Games Workshop Mail Order. You would then exchange these
tokens for some pretty cool prizes. The more money you spent,
the better the prizes.
One such prize was a set of previously unreleased Adeptus
Mechanicus Miniatures. These were the predecessors of the
Enginseers you now see in Imperial Guard armies. They
had a lot of character, and are some of my favorite models
ever produced by Games Workshop.
How much did I have to spend to get these things? A lot.
I'll let you guys dig up a White Dwarf from that time period
and do the math yourselves.
Fast forward to today, and I'd almost forgotten I had these
guys in my collection. It had been quite a few years since
I'd seen them last. It's amazing what you come across when
you start cleaning up the 'ol workshop. I figured it was
about time I did something with these guys.
