All of the figures I brough with me were painted - the phalon and night
brood ships were borrowed from a friend - and were painted purple
(which, coincidentally, matched my tayranid squid-thingy).

So _thats_ where the rest of them went to...
One thing I noticed - the turrets on some of them look like they are the
same mouldings as the third gun on a Ko'Tek. (Has anyone noticed that
the Ko'Tek appears to be carrying a Lu'Dak on top of it? - probably -
some of the KV 'tanks' have what looks like KV fighters on top of them
as well - methinks a 'dark secret' of CMD figure construction comes
to light :-).
