Rogue Trader Retro-Rebuild Ordo Malleus Inquisitor

Here's the finished retro-rebuild (I just made that term up, maybe it'll go old school viral!). Hopefully there'll be more along soon (Inquisitors are like that, you wait for ages for one then loads come along at once...)

New old stuff

So, I like the old stuff, and I like the new stuff, but often for very different reasons. I love the creativity and character of the old Citadel Miniatures Rogue Trader Adventurers for example, but the more modern miniatures are technically so much better - after all, the skills of the veteran sculptors and the standards expected of news ones have moved on 25+ years, and casting methods have advanced too.

 If only I could have the old stuff, but made to a modern standard. Here's my attempt at just that, taking this classic old Realm of Chaos Ordo Malleus Inquisitor...

And, following an expedition deep into the bitz box, recreating it with this result...

He's being painted even now, in the same style as the original 'Eavy metal example above, so I'll post the result once he's done and then maybe have a go at recreating a few others of my Old school favourites.
