Rogue Trader: Inquisitor Smyte

The mighty Inquisitor Malleo Smyte arrives on Geminion Secundus as part of the Inquisitorial Team dispatched to the Wailing Reach immediately prior to the outbreak of the third 'Stealer war.
Smyte had made his reputation as a young Inquisitor during the darkest days of the Second 'Stealer war, ruthlessly seeking out and purging 'stealer nests in the Geminions and also on Nepenthe.  He frequently worked in tandem with Inquisitor Julius Byrne, the two making an especially formidable team.
Unlike his comrades Inquisitors Heng and Byrne, who favored the employment of  what amounted to small armies of retainers, Smyte was a brooding and solitary creature.

He was normally accompanied only by a weird biomechanoid servitor and the strange being known as Lazarus Alte.
Alte's frail as wizened appearance belied his true value, for he was a master astropath and sanctioned psyker who wielded powers of appalling potency.
Well, its been fun working on these Inquisitors.  I suppose though, that this means its time I got off my butt and started painting up some genestealers for them to fight.
 So many projects, so little time.
"None can withstand us!!"


  1. Wonderful, Mr. Mouse! I've always, always loved that abnormally tall and gaunt astropath miniature. And you've really done the sculpt justice. And personally, I don't think any Inquisitorial band is complete without a sanctioned Astropath. Whose head is going to explode with warp-energy when things go bad?

    1. Well, mine, usually. Maybe that's why nobody invites me out to the bar anymore. Thanks and yes, I agree, that astropath is very possibly the best-sculpted figure to come out of the Rogue Trader epoch.
