GO BUY NOW! - Unreleased Warhammer 40,000 Rogue Trader miniatures

I have just returned from my holidays to find these wonderful miniatures delivered to our house, they are unreleased Warhammer 40,000 Rogue Trader miniatures that were never released during the golden age of Oldhammer and have been cast up on general release by Wargames Foundry.

You can purchase these miniatures here.

Lets have a breakdown of who these unreleased miniatures are.

  1. Captain Repentance: a Rogue Trader miniature that appeared in a photograph on page 11 of the Warhammer 40,000 Rogue Trader book, a prototype Imperial Inquisitor, the base miniature for this was the 2000AD Strontium Dog Johnny Alpha from the Citadel Judge Dredd miniature range.
  2. Sergeant Shame: a prototype Adeptus Custodes, another Citadel Judge Dredd miniature was used as the base miniature for this one, the SJS Judge holding Rifle
  3. Private Penitence: another prototype Adeptus Custodes miniature sculpt based on a Citadel Judge Dredd miniature and in this case it's Judge Giant
  4. Corporal Contrition: another miniature that appears in a photograph on page 189 of the Warhammer 40,000 Rogue Trader book sporting an 8 Ball helmet and is based on the RT7 Mercenary 'Old World Jack
  5. Lord Revelation: he is clearly depicted on page 140 of the Warhammer 40,000 Rogue Trader book as a typical Administratum Scribe.

These miniatures were based on Citadel Fiend Factory Ferocious Man-Fish and were modified to carry Sci-Fi weapons, previously only available at events, just give Wargames Foundry an email at:, they cost about £5-6 each plus P&P. There are only two poses available at the moment, a third may be coming soon.

Please support Wargames Foundry and purchase some of these fantastic miniatures doing so may help in making it financially viable for the guys at Wargames Foundry to dust off more Ex-Citadel moulds and cast them for our enjoyment, it takes a lot of time to do so please support them.

I was happy to find a gift of a Street Violence Swat miniature in my parcel too.

For many more Ex-Citadel miniatures go here:

I am also proud to show off my new paint brush rack courtesy of my father-in-law's woodworking skills, thanks John :)

I hope you enjoyed your visit, now get following :D

Adeptus Arbites

I have had a day off work today so I thought I would treat you to another miniature, I originally painted this miniature up as my Dark Heresy Arbitrator character but soon realised that an Arbitrator attached to an Inquisitorial warband wouldn't really go around in his service uniform on missions so I had to find another suitable miniature. (I will show you miniature conversion in a future post)

I am big fan of WAB (Warhammer Ancient Battles) and loved the classical look of this miniature with his crested helmet so painting him was pleasure and I have always loved the design of the Power Maul. You can see the original miniature here Citadel Miniatures Blue 1991 Catalog - Section 1

Adeptus Arbites - side

Adeptus Arbites - front

Adeptus Arbites - back

Note: I found this miniature in one of those massive loose miniatures for sale boxes at Wolverhampton Alumwell Wargame Show, his pistol arm was sawn off so I had to replace with a marine arm and a Laspistol but I don't think you can really tell.

Here is the miniature I converted for my Dark Heresy Arbitrator character, I used a Necromunda House Delaque with shotgun miniature and made simple head swap and added a Westwind miniatures Arthurian head this miniature is better suited to sneaking around the underhive not trying to draw attention to himself.
