That vindicare is a bad recast, case of the mould being cold when pouring there - model has a terribly pockmarked surface.  :-\

That's a pity - I've been looking for a 54mm vindicare for years.
I'd also like another calidus some time, as the hair, legs, and torso are fantastic for female guard, operatives, or other female characters.

Someone actuallly paid $100 for the Familiar? Jesus, that's desperation. I'm keeping my eye on the Tau/Familiar one. Only need the Familiar out of the whole set to be honest so if anyone wants the Tau/Servo Skulls/Malicant/Mutant.

The Vindicare was notoriously bad for miscasts in the first place, which is part of why it became OOP quite fast. It's not impossible it might actually be the real thing.

Captain L. Rollin: "Nonsense. Never heard of it."
Birgen: "Pick a window. I'll demonstrate".

Yea i heard that too, but it was for the gun miscasting IIRC. Any decent metal caster should be able to cast without that kind of pockmarking. I doubt that would have made quality control onto sale. But i guess as you say, not impossible :P

That sounds like a plan. I'll PM you.

Looks like robskib is selling a few things.
I stumbled over this from what I think is his ebay seller account:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/like/192076687156?dest=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fitm%2F192076687156

A trio of halo troopers converted for inquisitor.
I've discovered a set of my own of these recently, so stumbling over this was a bit late on my part, although I'm planning to repaint/rebuild mine a little differently.
