Over at Collecting Citadel Miniatures they have a picture of this mini in their 'unreleased' section but no additional information about it, other than the picture. The Stuff of Legends has alot of GW stuff, but after searching through their archives I came up with nothing on the mini. The style of the robes, the knives, canteens and the print at the bottom of the mini all point to GW, but the back story on how many of these guys were made and how some of them got to see the light of day is a mystery.
|Back of the base reads "GW 94"|
I really like the scope on this mini, very similar to the Vindicare Assassin, cant be too much of a stretch because they came out around the same time.Given the canteen style, the knife on the back and the other obviously Tallarn-esque characteristics of this mini, its safe to confirm that it is indeed an ‘unreleased Tallarn sniper’.
Its an awesome mini to have in my collection, and in 5 years of watching on ebay I have only seen one ever come up for sale. If anyone has any information on the back story of this mini I would love to hear it. Soon this sniper will get its paint and base to take its place in my gunline.
