The old stuff (mainly 1980's)
Above: Dark Future Battlecars. Two of these (on the left and the right) can be seen in an advert which appeared in White Dwarf 106:

Rogue Trader era/early 1990's Orks
If you flick through the ork books and White Dwarfs of the late 1980's/early 1990's you will discover that the 'Eavy Metal team painted an awful lot of orks during that period. Many of these are in the collection of Bryan Ansell, but a glance through the pics below will reveal that a lot escaped - who knows where else they may reside? I've personally seen some in several collections over the years...
Chaos old and new
Some new chaos stuff, because some of it is really rather nice. Not all. But some. Also some old chaos painted in the "new style." Over the past few years I've visited the Citadel Miniatures Hall a number of times, and I've been to a few events, where I've had the opportunity to see in the flesh a lot of the figures painted by the current 'Eavy Metal team and which have appeared in White Dwarf. I don't know if it's just me but I often find that these figures look much better in the flesh than they do in White Dwarf. I don't think it's the photographs used in the magazine (which I can't fault) but I find the whole think often looks a bit too clinical. Can't really explain it better than that. Anyway, some things which did nothing for me when they first arrived in White Dwarf (e.g. the Jabberslythe) look good up close and I really wouldn't mind owning one.
Above: The latest version of Azhag the Slaughterer by Trish Carden. I've read some negative opinions about this but personally I think the wyvern is utterly fantastic. I would go so far as to say it has the character of the Great Spined Dragon. Definitely on my "to get" list.
Forge World Space Marine Dreadnoughts
I think they are a re-imagining of the old Rogue Trader era Contemptor dreadnought:
Just some stuff I like:
Forge World works in progress
Above: not sure who this one is by - I think it's either Trish Carden or Keith Robertson.

I love this Troll Mother (designed by Trish). She hopes it will be available over the Summer:
