Rogue Trader Inquisitor

Hello again,  finally got around to finishing another draft and today's Oldhammer treat is another classic Citadel Miniature that is much loved and blogged about the first standalone Warhammer 40,000 Rogue Trader Inquisitor.  This miniature is often referred to as 'Inquisitor Obiwan Sherlock Clousseau' as he is obviously based on the Martin Mckenna illustration on page 142 of Warhammer 40,000 Rogue Trader rulebook.

Sculpted by Bob Naismith (which he confirmed today 30/05/2018 on the 'Emporium of Rogue Dreams' Facebook group and released 1988 appearing on this Rogue Trader flyer, it's quite an interesting sculpt with irregularities in the coat which you have to try and paint out, this has been pointed out on Axiom's excellent blog here, I think that's the reason the miniature wasn't around for long and certainly not available in the later back catalogues, I think the casting process was probably to blame for the coat fault.  In the illustration he appears to be welding a Chainsaw, the sculptor has interpreted it as some sort of ranged weapon on the miniature although the handle and lower part appear the same, I was thinking combat shotgun or railgun.  A resculpt of Rogue Trooper Major Magnum and Judge Dredd Chimichunga.

I went for the classic look most interpretations of this miniature go for with the ying-yang symbol necklace and blanchitsu checkerboard around the coat hem as per illustration.  He appears to have penal arrow sign on his coat or a sign similar to the 2000ad Torquemadas Terminators sign on his coat.
