|Painted Examples by Marcus Ansell.|
Did you hear about those unreleased Rogue Trader era miniatures that Bryan Ansell put on sale last week at the Oldhammer Weekend?
The models that everyone who didn't go are now desperate to get hold of!
What, you haven't heard of the unreleased models, including two who appeared in Rogue Trader and the Book of the Astronomican?
Either way, they can now be purchased from their website at a cost of £15.
The Wargames Foundry have supplied some amusing background for the models too:
"We believe that these newly discovered items are the almost mystically rare deathcasts of the elite EMPIRICAL ABSOLUTION and LIQUIDATION SQUAD. We estimate their value as somewhere in the region of an ENTIRE GALACTIC EMPIRE, probably with a couple of lost mythical lands thrown in.
The Empirical Abs etc. demanded absolute and immediate unthinking obedience to the Empiricator [BLESS HIS NAME!] and not only from the inhabitants of Known Space, but also from the entire population of the Multiverse.
Indeed: after a boozy afternoon of high stake rune casting and seven episodes of the most sacred tapes of STARTREK, the EALS (as they liked to be known) took to speculating as to what their ultimate rewards would be for their lifetimes of ceaseless holy work:
At this point the Empiricator [BLESS HIS NAME!] got a whiff of what was going on. He sighed heavily, made a few passes in the air, clicked his heels together twice, shouted SHAZAM! And he had obliterated the foolish boozy EALS. All that was found was a neat pile of bleached skulls. Each bore the word HUBRIS and each had a tiny lead ceremonial Manikin perched there on its dome."
