It's a 6-limbed multi-part casting, but with the miracle of blu-tac I have brought it to life. Here's a scale shot next to a Genestealer Magus and an early purestrain genestealer:
And are some more shots including close-ups of the head with tentacled mouth:
Here is the Ymgarl Genestealer as illustrated in the Rogue Trader rulebook:
A pretty close match wouldn't you agree? The head of the miniature, and particularly the tail, is more akin to the movie Alien figures, but it's essentially the same figure. Notice the miniature has the mouth tentacles of the illustration.
So, what do you think? I want one!
Incredible this find, you 're a real hunter of lead treasure.ReplyDelete
Ohhh this one get my juices flowing, so tasty :)ReplyDelete
4 thumbs up to you Steve !ReplyDelete
Wow, thats cool. Its less cool that none of us will ever get one, but it is cool to know that one was made. Like the Administratum scribe from a while back, its interesting to think that there may be other miniatures based on RT illustrations knocking around.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing.
great find never even seen one of those everReplyDelete
Real shame it wasn't put into (mass) production.ReplyDelete
Thanks for posting
Fantastic! Great mini and it does really resembles the Ymgarl. Thanks for sharing this great find /HansReplyDelete
What more lies in yonder treasure chest me wonders......ReplyDelete
Is there any chance of getting some of these old pieces cast for the rest of us! I imagine we'd all want 1-200 of those stealers?ReplyDelete
Are the technically copyright?
Maybe best post I've seen on a blog for the last decade. Thanks for sharing.
