Today's miniature is a running Genestealer Patriarch that I think was released towards the end of the Rogue trader era, I finished it last month. I am not the biggest fan of this miniature but I never purchased the more favoued Genestealer Patriarch on throne as I think it had sold out at the time, another painted version can be seen here on the Lexicanum site which I highly recommend.
The miniature looks like it was scuplted by Bob Olley to me but I am not 100%.
I painted this one up for our Dark Heresy/Deathwatch campaign but our Games Master went and sourced a more modern Broodlord from Ebay so it is now redundant for a while.
I love the Genestealer cult necklace it wears.

On another note while painting miniatures is not an option for at least two weeks, I have been prepping Realm of Chaos miniatures hoping that I will be able to take part in the Oldhammer Realm of Chaos day at the Foundry. Here is a picture of some of the Beastmen and Chaos Thugs I am hoping to choose from.
