Didn't know where to post this since they aren't in a scale compatible with wh40k. I found the links on the frothers board.

Whoaaaa, Tina Turner! with a big gun!!

Can't say i'm really impressed by the models though:eyebrows: they look a bit ...odd, to me.

I've read some rumors that they're not going to be in a scale compatible with either 40K or the Inquisitor line of figures, but somewhere in between. If true, in my opinion this makes them likely to turn out to be nothing more than an over-priced failure, from a sales perspective.

Most unfortunate, if it turns out to be so. I was hopeful that Warp Artefacts / Black Library would at least have a go at making figures that fit in with the existing GW figure scales.

That would make them Citadel miniatures and they would be released as such. These are a range of miniatures not derived from either 40K or Warhammer, for collectors and painters no gaming involved at all.

No there 40k inspired, just not under the banner. I think there being produced in house too but just by blanche himself - hence why they were advertised on the GW site not so long back.

(Hmmm posted this in 40 about 10 minutes ago before I noticed this, wonder where it went)

Well aside from the gun, I swear I've seen the rat-lady in Blood on the Reik... that's a Fantasy setting.

I think they're supposed to be from all the gaming periods and all female judging from the illustrations I've seen

The Femme Militants range are 40mm scale. They're John Blanche's personal project and aren't supposed to be part of the GW universes. They're really nice though, I have a couple of them here and am looking forward to seeing the rest...

Actually, when I first saw the blurb on Warp Artifacts about that miniatures line, I shot them an email and was told they would be 40k scale. That was a while back though, so that might have changed.

They're a series of 40mm scale (larger than 40k, smaller than Inquisitor) figures based off a series of paintings that John Blanche has produced. They're not based upon the 40k or WFB worlds. They have a certain similarity in style due to WFB and 40k being heavily influenced by John's style over the years.

Sorry to resurrect this thread, but does anyone have any further information about the release dates for these (or has it been and gone without me noticing...), or indeed any more pictures?

The last I heard about them was in April....

I believe that there will be some sort of display ( possibly release) at GD UK.

Details are rather sketchy but I will update when and if I know more :)
