40K: New Eisenhorn Model For Black Library Celebration

To celebrate 20 Years of Black Library, Inquistor Eisenhorn is coming to the tabletop top!

Late yesterday we got a tease that Inquisitor Eisenhorn would be getting a model and now Games Workshop has confirmed that he’s making his way to the tabletop! On February 24, GW stores will have a commemorative Eisenhorn model as well as the new merchandise for the event:

via Warhammer Community

“The event will be in part a celebration of 20 years of fantastic adrenaline-fuelled fiction from the worlds of Warhammer, and in part because the brand new Inquisitor Eisenhorn novel, The Magos is released on that day. And stores will have a host of special merchandise to commemorate both of these things. First, very excitingly, will be an exclusive resin Citadel miniature of Inquisitor Gregor Eisenhorn himself.”

Inquisitor Eisenhorn isn’t the only item that will available that day – but GW is being coy about what all will be up for grabs. But if you’re looking to scoop up an Eisenhorn of your own pick him up from your local GW store or online February 24th!

What do you think of the new model? Are you going to “recruit” the Inquisitor into your collection?

    Finally.

  • Timotheus

    OK no more Inquisition models. Too bad…

  • Erich Schoenholtz

    Are they going to have a data sheet for him so we can use him in games? Otherwise what’s the point?

    • Probably will be in the box. Like the Bonesinger. And like all the other special Minis they released lately. Like the Imperial Space Marine & Co.

    • Blinghop

      Yes. The full article says rules in the box.

    Well, mixed blessings for Mr Eisenhorn in the conversion process. On the downside his head grew out of proportion with his body; on the plus side, cured that male pattern baldness issue…

    • It’s the usual GW-head-size, isn’t it?

      • ZeeLobby

        They do tend to be bigger, though I feel like there has been like some normal headed people lately. It’s like whoever they let design the Khorne Bloodblooders in AoS just applies their gigantism to everything XD.

      • Aura1

        It’s correct to hero scale and the dawn of the bobble headed hordes. I guess without proper pauldrons (everyone needs big, big pauldrons in the future) it just seems more obvious. But I’m only joking. True scale Eisenhorn would make most things look stumpy.

    • dcgamers

      I can’t help but the head reminds me of the health bar “head” in the old DOOM games… Is Eisenhorn the DOOM-Guy?

      • barry sadler

        No Eisenhorn is Finkle, Finkle is Eisenhorn

        • ZeeLobby

          XD

    • ZeeLobby

      LOL. The head, now all I see is the head…

    • ZeeLobby
      • Kevin Maloney

        Yeah about that…they will soon be dropping their 40k line. 🙁

        • ZeeLobby

          Yeah, I figured it wouldn’t last long. Time to get my orders in.

          • Rahl

            “Gregor, Captive, Gideon, Chapter
            master, Warseer, Kiborc, Bone Banshee, Chastener, Heroic Commissar for sure. Boneshees – highly possible.” That list in on their tumblr post( https://artelw.tumblr.com/post/170276387326/not-so-pleasant-news ), they seem to be avoiding being specific on a list on their facebook though.

  • Severius_Tolluck

    Sweet! Will need one of these for sure. Loved that series. What would be also amazing if he was a hired gun for necromunda!

  • Chris

    Hope I can get one of these before they sell out. A friend and I are currently getting into Inquisitor 28mm, so this has come at a really great time.

  • Talos2

    Goes to show just how out of proportion the heads of human models are

  • Haravikk

    I’ll probably just stick with the one I already have in 54mm scale; use the same rules (if he gets any) but pop the Monster keyword on there 😃

  • eMtoN

    I’ll take 2.
