Ordo Malleus Inquisitor in Terminator Armour

Hello, today's miniature is an Ordo Malleus Inquisitor in Terminator Armour, a classic and much painted Oldhammer 40K miniature sculpted by Jes Goodwin and released in 1989, he armed with a Psycannon and Force Rod shaped like a Crozius Arcanum, festooned in Imperial livery, skulls, scrolls and arcane symbols whose meaning is long lost, he is the spiritual brother of the Imperial Inquisitor in Terminator Armour as they were released and packaged together so if you owned one you usually owned the other, you can see my Imperial Inquisitor in Terminator Armour here. (Updated photos below) 

The Ordo Malleus were introduced in the Realm of Chaos - Slaves to Darkness book in the Warhammer 40,000 'Dark Millennium' section on page 246, the Psycannon made it's appearance here on page 250, he also appeared in Space Hulk illustrations and rules but I can't remember where at the moment.

I decided to have a go and taking some better photos of my Imperial Inquisitor in Terminator armour as the photos in his original post are quite poor.

  1. Two really impressive models here Jason. I have always admired your style of painting, with your use of deep hues (as in the red and orange) and contrasting highlighting. Glorious detailing to boot! These must have taken you hours!!

    1. thanks James, really good to see you back, both miniatures were stop/start projects which took years to complete but I could only take them staring at me for so long before having to commit proper time to them, you know the score :D

  2. Great pair. Do you think they could have one of those odd couple cop storylines. The grizzled Inquisitor who like to do things by the book and the radical Ordo Malleus who breaks all the rules to nail the heretic. At first they don't get on, but by the end of the campaign they have developed a grudging respect for each other.
