Old school Arbite Judge

Some models just don't seem to age, yet they are sometimes the ones that disappear from the rules. This little guys is one such example, the detail is fantastic and the model just looks amazing. I got him cheap off ebay and he has just arrived. So i though i would share him with you all... hes next on the paint list after the war walkers... promise.

For those of you who don't know what he is, he is a Judge from the Adeptus Arbites. The Arbitrators (also called enforcers) are the police of the imperium so to speak, they have precincts on each world and punish those who brake the imperial law. However they are not forced to just look after one planet, they have their own ships and transports allowing them to punish the guilty no matter who they are, where they are, or their rank.

The judges command forces of enforcers and can call upon the full resources of the imperium. They often fight the first flames of rebellion and heresy and then get supported by the guard or space marines. They are pretty important guys, like a mini inquisitors but in a uniform.

I don't know why but the arbites have always fascinated me, and i don't have much fluff for them bar whats mentioned in necromunda and 2nd edition. Anyway i hope this little lesson has been as interesting for you as i find the subject.

  1. Look up the RPG "Dark Heresy" you can play Adeptus Arbites and there may be more Fluff than youve seen before.
