Imperial Bodyguard - Adeptus Custodes

Hey,  For today's post an Adeptus Custodes.

This first miniature was from the First Warhammer 40k releases March 87 flyer See flyer here he is listed as an Imperial Bodyguard.  This miniature reminds me of one of the 2000AD comic character Torquemada Terminiators he wears a similar antifaz steeple hood travelling the galaxy in search of Xenos. (very Ku Klux Klan like)


In the first edition rule book you can see a picture of him guarding the Emperor.  See below.



And Imperial Bodyguards with an Astropath here, I think the artist used the citadel miniature as reference for his drawing.

I hope you enjoy

  1. Yet another amazing set of models that I will never be able to own! :( I'd love to have every single one of the figures in this set, especially the Imperial Psycher and the Heavy Infantry!

  2. Im loving all these RT Adventurers. I never got around to buying them back in the 80s/90s. Every so often I see stuff like this and wistfully trawl Ebay for a while before financial sense prevails :(

    Do you have the old Navigator? Man, I really want that guy.

    Great work, keep it up!

  3. Hey dude thanks for the comment i am glad you like.

    The current Ebay prices are scandalous and it seems that the more the interest in old school miniatures increases the more the prices increases, I think ebayers are watching the growing interest these communities are generating and adjusting their prices accordingly.

    I do have the navigator in my dettol stripping pile as he was painted with enamels in 1987. I will start to process him especially for you I hope I do him justice, Ex-Tech and Feral Hero are almost completed stay tuned.

    1. Cool, I am looking forward to seeing the navigator :)

      Old Ctadel stuff isnt going to get cheaper no matter what happens. If you come across duplicates of any old RT era, non-Space Marine types in the Dettol pile and want to trade/sell then drop me a line. I have quite a few old Eldar and some other bits and pieces.

      Keep the regular output up too, its great to see the old stuff getting reworked instead of sitting in a box in someones attic.

    2. Hey Dude,
      I have lots of multiples of RT era miniatures from the Adventurer and Mercenary range, I will take a photo and upload it soon, I would prefer trade on a one for one basis (everyone is a winner then), there are a couple of adventurers I am missing, i am really looking for Realm of Chaos 80's miniatures at the moent for my up and coming warband.
      Thanks for the comment.

    3. Hi Jason

      My post may have come off as more mercenary than I had intended :) If you have some RT stuff for trade and I have something that you want then great Off the top of my head I have RoC era Bloodletters and Nurglings and RT Eldar. Drop me a line at benedicthallmarkATgmailDOTcom if you have any interest in that sort of stuff. Ask me if there is something specific that you are looking for as I maight have it but forgotten to mention it.

      Still looking forward to seeing how you paint the Navigator regardless :)
