  1. Very nice. Love the guy with the jetpack. Should be a new guard formation.

    • Jetpack, or is it a rocket based version of a grav chute?

      Thanks for the feedback cheerfulmeerkat. I will do up a 10 man squad of these jet packers soon.

      They guy with the jetpack is based off:

      So we see here what appears to be a marine backpack used as a jump pack. Note that in the early days most every marine could get a jump pack in the army lists, so most people just assumed that they were jump packs which they probably were not. According to the 1st Edition RT book diagramm the marine backpack housed the temperature regulator, air purificator, and reserve air tanks. The bottom set of vents seem to be listed as exhaust pipes and the top two are listed as stabalising jets.

      Personally I think it more likely that the backpack was supposed to provide thrust for zero gravity operations, it is clearly designed to jet gas from a variety of vent ports from the back. Note the design similarity of the bottom vents to the vents in the most famous (and Brittish) vectored air vehicle of the era, the Harrier:

      So we have two big jets for thrust and lots of small vents for vectored thrust which sounds plausible enough for a sci-fi figure design.

      So one can imagine that this Imp Guard version of a jump pack could well be an STC variant of the marine backpack zero gravity thruster system.

    Your work is amazing! Thanks also for following my blog.

  3. […] many miniature projects that we have been working on recently.  That meant that theottovonbismarks 1989th Necromundan “Death Ferrets” Regiment allied with Inquisitor Verhoeven, some fishmen and avian scouts in the hostile jungles of Krellborn […]
