Imperial Assassin

The headswap on the repentia got me thinking... 
That ninja style dark elf head reminded me of Jes imperial assassin from the good ol' Rouge Trader days - a mini I found immensely awesome at the time:

I decided this was the perfect time to recreate that image in glorious plastic. I even managed to do some real greenstuff work ( something I normally try to avoid as I have no patience for curing times whatsoever...).

EDIT: here's where he is now. Added a sash (ninjas like sashes, right?) and fiddled a bit with the gun. 


  1. I was always fond of that old model too. Great idea to recreate him in plastic! He is looking really good thus far. The only thing that bothers me a little are how large his hands are (they actually mimic Jess's model so it kind of works, ha ha). I really like his pistol so far, particularly the extended magazine in the grip. What are your thoughts about the scope on the pistol? I feel it is elevated a little too high, which would make it difficult for the assassin to actually use.

    Greenstuff work is tricky business. I have to go in stages only doing a small amount of it at a time, often having to go back and touch up details. Keep up the good work!

  2. It would probably be rather impractical for an assassin to use a pistol the size of his chest...

  3. More fantastic inspiration from you Jeff - brilliant stuff - really makes me want to rummage through my bits boxes and start putting things together.

    And a belated congrats for the Blanchitsu article - all you guys in the INQ28 movement are providing a wealth of inspiration through your blogs.

  4. Yeah - I know what you mean - the assassin is a very "bitz-boxy" conversion isn't he?
