Hi, seeing as 'Necropolis' was recently released in audiobook format, I've been giving that a listen - I think it is still my favourite 40k Novel, even after almost 20 years since it was originally published. It's got me thinking about those Tanith 1st miniatures GW released about 15 years ago (or longer); at the time I never fancied buying them to do a full army (I think the fact you had to convert heavy weapons and special weapons other than snipers or plasma gunners really put me off). However, the small number of miniatures they did make are very suited to a force for Kill Team.

I know these minis are long out of production, and go for silly prices on eBay, but have they ever been featured in a limited run on the 'Made to Order' service, to anyone's knowledge? If not, I may well contact GW and request they do that.

Thanks for reading, and for any responses! :)

The Command / Characters were still available as recently as last year from the Webstore, the Troop blisters haven't been available or offered for YEARS. Fortunately, if you'd like to give it a go, Victoria Miniatures has you covered with their Border Worlds Rangers models.

Thanks Grotsmasha - I'd forgotten about Victoria Miniatures' take on Tanith Ghosts. At the moment that's a cheaper route to go down to do a Kill Team of about 15 miniatures; if I wanted to include Gaunt himself though I'd have to go to eBay, until GW ever makes those minis Made to Order..!
