Sully Posted December 23, 2018 Share Posted December 23, 2018 Years before I was interested in Guyver, way back in 1990 I fell for a board game called Space Crusade! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_Crusade This game was my introduction to the Space Marines and and the lore around them. I would go on to buy the Expansions A friend of mine at the time explained that this game was part of the Warhammer 40,000 universe and I'd go on to star collecting a magazine called White Dwarf which would give me the rules to expand the miniature range in the game. This is a picture of my bad guys from Space Crusade army at the bottom and my Epic 40K Army above from way back in 1993. All of the minitures were hand painted by me back in the day. It was just earlier in the year I'd in fact learned about Guyver at of all places a Star Trek convention 5 years later I was living in Wales. While there I met the person who would go on to make TheGuyver.Net and Japan-Legend.com at a local comic store were we would chat about Guyver. It was there I picked up some resin kits. The skills I learned from painting miniatures would lead on to me painting these two Guyvers: So to me there has always being a connection between my ability to paint minutes and Guyver. They though were the last things I ever painted. I moved back to Ireland in 1997. I found this picture of me from 2001. At the time I was living in a flat in Dublin where I worked and went back to College (at the time in this picture I was a year into my degree). The funny thing is it's of me working on a Guyver picture for Warrior Guyver and in the left side of the picture you can see unfinished Resin kits..... I would move house / flat 10+ times until 2011 when I eventually got the place I now call home a house that is mine (well 70% the banks! ) It was here I eventually finally unpacked all the boxes that traveled with me over the years. In one of them I found these wonderful things: It was the first time in 10 odd years they'd seen the light of day. So what does that mean now.....
