This is Kali Dakkar, Captain of the Dread Nautilus (which I illustrated here, along with some background). I’ve always wanted to do a rogue trader, an excuse for a flamboyant and extremely over-the-top individual with design elements and ideas taken from more diverse sources than a more austere Inquisitor. She is probably the most fiddly conversion I’ve ever attempted and only possible due to getting a dremel recently (cool stuff). The model is obviously rather inspired by Julian Bayliss’ fantastic Dreadfleet collection while the character is mainly inspired by Alan Moore, Jules Verne and also somewhat by the character Teng Namatijra in Dan Abnett’s (boring) Legion novel who has a pet big cat.
The lynx is made from an ancient wood elf beast, quite a nice sculpt I think. I had to chop it up a bit to make it less flat. They will be based together.
