At the beginning of March 2005 on my blog I mentioned that GW were releasing a limited edition Witch Hunter model that would only be sold in the stores on the 2nd and 3rd April.
Well I didn't think I was going to get one, but I was on my way over to Simon's for a game of Space Hulk and stopped off at the GW store and picked one up.
It is a very nice model and is based on the Witch Hunter model that is available in the boxed set, but has a different weapon (plasma pistol) and is pointing rather than holding a sword. Personally I think it is a better model.
Now do I paint it, or do I keep it and sell it on eBay in a few years time (or does everyone do that).
Rules can be found in White Dwarf #304 for this model.
You can see some painted Warhammer 40K Witch Hunter miniatures in our Miniatures Gallery.
Here is the 'Eavy Metal painted version of the model.
After much thought I decided that I would put together the model and paint it. The casting comprises a single casting, but the model is in two parts.
The model goes together very easily.
This is the rear view.
