Blackstone Fortress - The Explorers

Hello, today we have some modern Warhammer 40,000 miniatures from the Warhammer Quest Blackstone Fortress game, I really want to play this game so much that completing the explorers is a massive milestone to me on the road to getting a game on with painted miniatures.

For the paint job I wanted to go as close to the examples on the Games Workshop website as possible to make them easily recognisable to my little boy, some of the ridiculously professional detailing was ignored for obvious reasons, here they are my efforts.

Janus Draik, Rogue Trader, like all Rogue Traders Janus is a pioneer tasked with exploration and expansion beyond Imperial space boarders, they are granted permission to trade and interact with aliens out in the fringes of space. Janus Draik is looking to bring archeotech and artefacts back to the Imperium.

Espern Locarno, Imperial Navigator, sanctioned mutant, he seeks to search the Blackstone Fortress for lost archeotech, hoping to discover cargos that will unlock the arcane secrets of warp travel.

Thaddeus the Purifier, Ministorum Priest, Taddeus has come to the Blackstone Fortress to bring the Imperial Cult to Precipice. He wants to purge the Fortress of any taint he finds.

Amallyn Shadowguide, originally from the now shattered Craftworld Biel-Tan, she now searches the Blackstone Fortress for ways to save her dying home. The lost secrets and archeotech may have some clues on how to restore her craftworld.

Dahyak Grekh, Kroot Tracker, is a Kroot mercenary and heading into the Blackstone Fortress in search of more genetic material to consume which could unlock the secrets held within.

UR-025 is an Imperial Robot in the service of a Magos. Is this Robot sentient and possibly one of the legendary "Men of Iron" sentient robots who threatened the earlier human civilisation of the Dark Age of Technology?
