255 dollars.. I think someone just made a ton of money on a conversion!

hrm weird, dont know if there was an emperor model but it looks a lot like it was based on the hours VS emperor art that was made in what 2005-2006.

Also the components dont look like they match the end result, even with conversion.

Seems like the "Emporer" has already enough followers to justify an own miniature. Anyway, pictures or miniatures of the emperor are one of the highest sacrilegs. You just don't do it.

Wow

$255

That equals 1785 Rand

Wow some one just got ripped off and another person just made a whole lot of easy money.

Even that the model does not even look that good.

The model in the auction is unassembled and unpainted.

255 for that?:)

I do believe this model is GW and was very limited release... There has been a few knocking around ebay you seem time to time but well thats ALOT of money... there was a one a few months back from a UK seller who couldnt get 100 for a really nice painted version. the model did look the same so i dont believe its a conversion. I wouldnt mind one tho for 10

I do believe this model is GW and was very limited release... They aren't GW they're rip-offs based on the Horus Heresy artwork. GW legal usually closes down the auctions if they use Emperor or 40k in the title.

It is NOT GW. The model is from an Italian company (who carefully avoided using GW registered names) and sold for around 30-50€ a year ago.

I have no idea anymore what the name of the company was, but I remember that they had an online-shop (in italian) and sold directly, too. Perhaps someone here can help you out with the address.

I do not know their name either but they did have the whole Horus/Emperor set (including the guards) up as seperate figures on ebay a few weeks back, I stumbled upon it looking for Adeptus on ebay. They even had a link to their site, which I did not save. :cries:

I think Hortwerth did it the best justice a while back:

painted a tad too yellow, but stunning regardless.
