Relic Dealer and Kiosk - 40k

I built a bunch of 40k civilians when I had some free time, and I'll be working through them periodically. First up is another relic dealer, with a small kiosk.

The base model is a Reaper 'Clergy' figure, with some greenstuff, wire, a Bretonnian reliquary, and a servo from the devastator kit.

The kiosk is a combination of 3d printed parts, plastic bits from a Grey Knights kit, plasticard, and a track unit from an old Disney Atlantis toy.

40k Rares - Adepta Sororitas Sister Famulous and Frateris Militia of Saint Javelin

June and July 2022 was a peculiar time for me- I acquired all the of the rare 40k miniatures I was hunting for, within a couple of weeks.

These included the Eisenhorn Black Library set which I had been actively searching for, for well over a year, and several rare unreleased 40K Adepta Sororitas- including my 'grail',  the Sister Famulous. I resolved to have the Famulous and the rare Frateris Militiaman painted by the end of 2022, and I finished them right before the New Year rolled over.

The Frateris Militia group includes the four standard varaints, an unreleased miniature, and a 3D printed 'Commander Z' from Reptilian Overlords which I digitally modified to carry an autogun. I scaled his head up about 10% to match the bobble headed proportions of 40K miniatures. The flag is brass rod and foil. I freehanded the saint image, the rest is decals from the Inquisition transfer sheet and from Forgotten Chapters.

Frankly, I can see why the Frateris was unreleased, as he's not up to par with the others.


The Sister Famulous on the other hand was a lot of fun to paint and fits perfectly with her non-militant order Sisters, the Dialogus (a horrible model) and the Hospitaller.

I also painted up her two charges, 3D printed miniatures from Vae Victus and Marchen.
