Sergeant 'Ripper' Jackson
The new exclusive miniature for store opening events is this tough-as-nails Catachan Jungle Fighter veteran sergeant, and she’s ready to lead the charge.
She’s packing a boltgun, chainsword, laspistol (you can never have enough guns), a bionic leg and an intimidating presence – as befitting a leader of the Astra Militarum. This model makes an ideal display piece, from the pose to the scenic jungle base which is decorated with carnivorous plants and a thoroughly deceased Tyranid organism. We’re sure Ripper is going to be a hit with both Astra Militarum players, collectors and painters alike.

We’ll have more information about how to get your hands on this awesome model soon. Look for new store opening events near you, and start planning your trip!

First plastic Lictor too.

Between this and the pointy binoculars hand I would say 85% chance of plastic catachans this year.

Guess it's time to paint that box from 1999.

I want 2. And I want that bionic leg to be an option in the next plastic guard kit.

If I did Catachans, I'd be all over this. Might still find a place for her somewhere or other!

Read the history of the Charadon Crusade: The Crusade of Fury was at an end.
Join the Crion Crusade: I think it's the combination of butt jokes, democratic necrons, explosions, and mind-fething that draws people to this Crusade like moths to a bug zapper - War Kitten

What will the price be, $40? I'd love this and a plastic Lictor, but paying GW prices makes me feel like I'm enabling a person in desperate need of an intervention.


Some day I'll paint up my 6 Catachans (formerly 60), half in red and half in blue, and my Konami Contras will at last defeat the vile Red Falcon.

I still prefer the Victoria Miniature version, but I'll likely get this model too if I get the chance!

"Our fantasy settings are grim and dark, but that is not a reflection of who we are or how we feel the real world should be. [...] We will continue to diversify the cast of characters we portray [...] so everyone can find representation and heroes they can relate to. [...] If [you don't feel the same way], you will not be missed"

She'd likely be $35 or so.

The plastic Lictor bit was a joke, as she's seemingly standing on the head of what looks like a potentially redesigned one.

I really like that. Only thing missing is a shotgun on that free hand!


... and it not being SM Lieutenant is also a bonus.

Current store opening prices are £20 for the AoS pair, and £15 for the Terminators characters. Prices are of course per model.

Suspect this’ll be £20.

Now to begin the hunt for new Stores opening, get some Looting done.

Damn it. I really like the Sarge and would gladly pay whatever to add her to my Catachans, but I highly doubt there will be any store openings in my area. Do GW sell these minis at any other opportunities, e.g. SPIEL in Essen?

Yes, that was another shameless plug.

That model reminds me of a 54mm conversion Catachan model that one of the GW model designers came up with in the late 90s.

It might have been Gary Morley. Part of it was the old Devastator shoulder carried Heavy Bolter being used as a bolt gun.

Off to Google!

Could be a juvenile catachan devil.

Whoa, this is a great model! I really hope they redo the whole Catachan model line in this style.

Those plants by her feet look like grenades.

Not usually a Catachan fan, but this model looks pretty cool. Catachans redone to this standard might actually be tempting.

Yes. I've been trying to track it down. Asked the 40k page but they weren't sure. I remember it in a mod-90s White Dwarf. It was very similar. Female Catachan, bandana, bolter, foot on Nid head. Had the bolter braced on her knee of the leg resting on the head. It was awesome.

This ‘un.

Defo a homage.But without the needless tic-tac smuggling.

Are none of your worried about the tyranid abuse going on in the model! Poor little innocent lictor getting killed and posed on like that.



Though freaking heck I hope that's a bit of a concept for a new model - would be great to see lictors get their plastic release

They'll probably make good Rogue Trooper models.

Yep, I need one just for the coolness factor. Good sculpt.

God damn that's horrifically bad.
Her face looks like it's been squeezed in a vice.
And I've never seen a strap force a woman's breasts under her arm pits.
Her stomach is a mess.
And her hands are blobs of ham.

Dear god burn it!!!

Should've given her a grenade launcher for some serious nostalgia.

I’d doubt it’s a Lictor. More like just Death World flora and fauna.

Great model!
