After reading the books from his series, I did a bit of hunting on the GW website and found that they never made rules for him. Or a model for that matter. Ive seen a very good convert of him on Cool mini or not and I want it.
My question is, why hasnt GW made a model and rules for him?

Yeah, I thought about that. Im still curious why they havent put him out already though.
I am not entirely sure on this one but isn't Cain a relatively new book. I know alot of the characters from the Novels existed as special characters before they ever got novels, (Eisenhorn, Gortek and Felix, Schaffeur(sorry about spelling)).
As far as I am aware the existing guard codex is older than all the Cain novels hence no character in the rules.
The other one is that he might be a popular character amoungst those who have read the books but might not be a high selling book like the gaunts ghost novels. If there isn't the book sales they might not feel compelled to make the model.
Just some thoughts.
The first Cain book came out in November 2003, and I think the Codex came out in July 2003. As far as I know, Cain wasn't acknowleged before For the Emperor, so this means that he could not have been included as a special character. (Although this doesn't explain why the lack of a White Dwarf article)
BL did make a Cain diorama, although only 500 were released.
You might find one on ebay if you're lucky.
There is no such thing as a plea for innocence in my court. A plea for innocence is guilty of wasting my time. Guilty.

Yeah, Ive seen that. I dont really like it though. I think your right anout the timing though. Hopefully they make him for the next codex.
This is the one from CoolMiniorNot.com. I want to know who made it, so i can go knock him out and steal it. The only thing is, I thought he had a bolt pistol in the books.
He never ever ever ever had a bolt pistol.
The covers say otherwise. >:/

Because he only ever used a laspistol, even when offered a hellpistol.
Kinda like Schaffer. He only had a bolt pistol in all the books, but his damn mini is holding a plasma pistol >:/
