Mystery Forgeworld mini


I tried to look this guy up on the Forgeworld site, but for the life of me, I could not find it!  I ran across some of the other command figures I have been working on, but no luck here.


I assume he is some sort of Astropath?


Anyway, more to come!

  1. He's a Legion Master of Signal from the Horus Heresy section.

  2. It's also a reworking of Communication Officer Orinoco

    If memory serves the miniature was marketed as a techmarine in later White Dwarfs.

  3. I do so love that model. I remember having the original metal one many years ago.

    Stunning paintwork on him too :)

  5. I dug mine up and posted a picture or two from my phone's camera (http://chappellheim.blogspot.com/2013/10/ancient-comm-mini.html)... Still haven't chosen a Legion for my 30K force, guessing I'll go back to the Wolves and hope that they do in fact use a lot of the basic "Legion" stuff from the initial book...

  6. You are amazing. I would kill to be able to paint glow like that (seriously glow is a painting technique i cannot master) and freehand like the back of the cape. Please never stop painting miniatures and posting them for me to look at.
