Reaper 02337: Malvernis Inquisitor

One of the great things about this little miniatures community we have is that we’re not just another Warhammer or 40k group, and that there’s a diverse group of people with diverse interests and areas of knowledge. Here’s a model that I simply have no idea about. I bought it well over a decade ago as part of that set of D&D/RPG models I’ve been painting and posting slowly. Of course, back then I cut down the integral metal base and put it on a round 25mm, and so even when I recently found it and applied a healthy dose of fucking finish this thing to the model to it, it didn’t matter that I cut off the last vestiges of the metal base, since there were no manufacturers’ markings left on it anyway. So if you recognise this model (I couldn’t find it on Reaper’s site) please let me know what it is, so I can edit this post! 🙂

Now, while I say fucking finish this thing, I should point out that this one wasn’t a simple matter of adding the details. The whole model was painted in an ugly drybrushed shade of grey, so counting the rebasing, it’s really been a complete (re?) paint. Though I’ll admit, it’s a pretty simple scheme. The Yin-Yang symbols are decals, by the way. I wanted them perfect, and while I enjoy the old freehand, I’m not at the point of perfectly circular circles. It’s still an awkward model, but, you know, done is done!

Big thanks to reader Mr Gavin who identified the model as Reaper’s Malvernis Inquisitor, sculpted by Bobby Jackson – with a name like that I guess it makes sense why my search for “monk” was fruitless when trying to find the model.

  1. To me, he looks like he could just as easily be a martial arts monk as something from fantasy (which is a credit to the sculpt, I would say). I like the yin-yang decals too. They give him a little extra character and visual detail 🙂

    • Thanks and yeah – I bought the model to use as a D&D monk. I have no idea what a “Malvernis Inquisitor” is supposed to be, but I figured the robes and book fit the Monk-bill pretty well!
