Not a trade thread so much as a sales thread for a new product, so moved to N&R. Carry on.

Inqusitors are some of the most diverse looking people in 40k, being what they are. The possibilities are almost limitless.

Adding in Retinue and Acolytes would just expand the range even further....

These are amazing, I can't wait to see more.

These are great but you might want to rethink the naming.

While 'sci fi dude in coat with staff' in NOT copyrightable, 'Gregor Eisenhorn' is both copyrightable (as a distinct character) and trademarkable (as GW made a product called Inquisitor Eisenhorn).

Simply removing the proper names, perhaps altering some details, and not calling them Inquisitors would remove many of the potential IPR problems you will almost certainly face from GW.

It's the difference between selling a doll called 'Mickey Mouse' and a doll called 'Cartoony Mouse doll'.

How much inspiration you can draw on from someone else's ideas is always a contentious issue, and I'm not a lawyer.

But I can definitely tell you that marketing a miniature using the names of GW characters is over the line.

Being able to advertise on such a busy wargaming hub like this without causing Lego et al undue trouble would be wise though.

There's no need to open that debate because we know for a fact that GW does, banks do, credit card companies do, pay pal does and, in this context most importantly, Dakka Dakka Enterprises does.

So a word to the wise - "Intergalactic Investigator with coat and stuff"

Hmm meant to write staff, but stuff works just as well.

Thank you for advise, really, but that is our agenda: yes, we can rename all our works and delete any iconic symbols of WH40K universe and miniature still will be great. But, IMHO, it`s important to tell about inspiration sources rather then disguise it.

Def interested in these - will be in touch.

Any chance of undertaking a sculpt of Inquisitor Amberley Vail - that would be awesome.

Both of them look really good, but something looks a bit off about the proportions on totally-not-Eisenhorn. I think his arms might be a few millimeters too long.

Agree completely - it's only very slight, but definitely noticeable.

Also, his head appears to be too far forward on his torso.

Otherwise, excellent, and I second the call for a totally-not-Amberley.

You scare us alot! We immediately chek mini. I think it`s an optic illusion on picture, bcose of stuff in his hands, that makes arms visually longer. And I assure you, that his head is perfectly in right place too Perhaps, we should make a better fotos.

Anyway, thank you!

We still in doubt - make him more in pathos "Decorated Hero of Imperium, who Know No Fear" style, or more Rinceweendish comic way.

That might be all it is, but have a look at your top 2 photos (above) of him.

It looks like his chin is pushed forward to a ridiculous degree.

I see, it`s combination of pose and camera angle, I suppose.
We`ll make new photos

The male one is AWESOME!! The female one just looks plain. I know GW does over the top stuff, but this feels the exact opposite direction. The male inquisitor though is fantastic!!

Reality is a nice place to visit, but I'd hate to live there.

Hello!
In "W" artel (https://www.facebook.com/artel.W.miniatures/) we got inspirations from many sources: illustrations, games, books... This miniature will be made based on webcomic series about brave and concerned commisar Ravel and not-so-perfect guardsmen Titus by GreySkull. https://vk.com/album-131798316_237812379

We want her badly, and so does GreySkull and his readers. To work!
3d-artist and sculptor Sergey Rynkov.
First concept:


Then we were thought - Titus must be there too. Okay.


And further with this idea:


Weapons variants for Dame Worth Killing For:

Well, axe and hammer from another mini

That`s all for now, but very soon next stage will be starting.

Will there be a version of the female commissar not carrying a trooper?

Love the concept, but would prefer a solo model.
