So via the medium of eBay, Drifter and I found an interesting bundle of 40k minis. 

 

One of those, I caved and bought, because I thought she was really interesting.

I picked up the Mechanic Female Adept Tech Priest (With Axe), because... What the hey. She was listed as 48mm, but I don't think that's quite right, though it's possible she's been measured differently. I dunno. She's certainly a little on the large side (and due to her sculpt, she is very tall), but I could probably give her axe to Sir Forescale and it wouldn't look out of place, so I'm inclined to say she's a large 28mm, with typos. 

 

However, she's beautifully detailed, if made of quite a number of parts and a bit confusing at first glance. Mine also has, I think, some fairly major casting tabs or something, which is confusing life considerably, as I'm not only terrible at assembly, I'm also a huge wuss. 

 

This is how she arrived:

Another link =P

Cautiously dryfitting her, and there's dearest Sir Forscale =] https://scontent-lhr3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xap1/v/t1.0-9/12108143_10153375597403451_8907435325946399657_n.jpg?oh=fe722099396f158f26cc26c01833a1f2&oe=568DA310

 

But erhh... She scares me, haha. I may end up waiting for Drifter to get here (as he's coming to stay next week), and then have help with getting her cleaned and put together properly.

Nice buy.

 

Thanks =]

 

Maybe the 48mm wasn't scale, but model height??

 

It's quite possible - I'll measure her when I've got her fully assembled. The site I managed to trace her and her ilk back to, however, does say 48mm scale. She came in from Ukraine, so I wonder if it's possibly something that's gotten last in translation (though the rest of the site is 28s, and they are listed as such... Erh, most mysterious). 

 

Makes her, for me, quite an expensive 28mm, but she would've been a very cheap 48mm, haha.

IIRC, she's a Forgeworld model, therefore an expensive 28 mm model. :)

That's exactly what I was thinking.  I've noticed some folks try to skirt the issue by saying the model is XXmm to the eyes,which isn't really helpful.

 

 

Indeedee... It's odd, because the rest of that eBay seller was consistent, and ditto to the site I tracked her back to. Just a weird anomaly on this particular mini, it would seem.

I'm digging through Forgeworld now, just to double check her, and I can't actually locate her on their site, unless she's out of print. She seems a bit of an odd one. WarGameExclusive carry her (which I located when I noticed the name on the paypal transaction on eBay), and she seems to be theirs, at least at the moment. 

 

Erk, I'm terrible at this, haha.

Ok, did you buy this from the Cadwallon site? Since you mention Ukraine?

 

I have bought some great busts there from legendarion.

 

They have original sculpts.

 

BUT they also sell sculpts based on GW /Forgeworld and Confrontation miniatures./ artwork or "inspired" by those.

 

My guess is, this is a Forgeworld style mini, but sculpted by the Cadwallon folks themselves.

 

Also I spotted OOP Confrontation minis there, that can be bought of the shelve, som mabybe these are resculpted there.

 

I have no idea if they own rights or anything. And yes they do have some awesome minis.

This is a great mini and a lucky find!

 

A quick google search found this one on wargameexclusive.com along with a host of over very amusing (though professional) conversions.  Probably my favorite so far are the female Tau.  I don't even collect Tau and I find myself wanting to put together a "harajuku girls" detachment, lol.

I picked her up I think from an eBay outlet, perhaps. I've pulled up Cadwallon, but again, can't see her. Oddly, the seller was listed as being in Costa Rica, but she shipped in from Ukraine *shrug* I do not even know. 

 

I've just checked the site I tracked her back to, and all it says on the matter is;

 

"All miniatures are legally casted with agreement of their sculptors.

Among them were sculpted exclusive for us."

 

Phrasing is a little odd, but again, could be put down to translation issues. I think she is possibly unique to the site/company I tracked her to, and she is one of their originals. They have an extremely interesting collection of female minis, all in GW style.

Aye, that's where I tracked her back to in the end. They have a rather lovely range, if a bit on the overly boob-y side sometimes, haha. I don't play Warhammer tabletop at all, I just thoroughly enjoy Dawn of War on my laptop, and I enjoy the style... So slowly, I'm trying to get together the handful of 40k minis that I love most =] This one might not be an official one, as it were, but it made me smile and I thought she'd be a worthy start to that collection.

She is a wicked cool sculpt.  I hope we get to see more of her soon.

 

^_^ My thoughts exactly!

 

I might try and tidy her up and stick bits of her together after work tomorrow evening, I'm not sure yet. I'm not hugely experienced (ie, not even remotely) with cleaning up and dealing with resin, so I'm rather wary of pushing forward too quickly with her. If not though, Drifter gets here on Tuesday, so an update then at the latest, I thinkest =P

After seeing your photos of her, I'm extremely tempted to get that female Commissar I was eyeing xD

But yeah, she's lovely. If you haven't cleaned her up and got her assembled by the time I come up, I can give you a hand hun ^^
Rather than doing it for you like I did with the Nightingale, I'll make you do it this time for learning purposes :P

Later =P when I'll also order one or two more. 

 

Cheers ^^;

I've cleaned some Bones in the meantime, so I'm getting there... But erk xD cleaning dimly scares me. 

I still need to assemble and spray the Nightingale too.
