Does anyone know of any toys or miniatures outside GW that could be used to model a character in power armour?
I want to avoid using the Typus & Magus models as they are used by so many inquisitor players for power armoured characters.
Which scale are you using..
Oh.. You mean Tyrus rather than Typhus?
Not sure about outside the range.. But don't forget Captain Artemis. His armour does shriek space marine, but might make a decent base for conversions. I believe there's also a battle sister model somewhere.
In general, though, I'd suggest avoiding power amour at all costs.. Sitting there for 15 turns pinging each other is not a very dramatic battlescene.

I can't think of any models off the top of my head that absolutely scream "power armour", but there are plenty of 54mm models in plate armour of various sorts out there.
I suggest visiting www.HistorexAgents.com - T h e H i s t o r e x A g e n t s W e b s i t e and doing a search for "54mm" - be warned, though, that you'll get over 1,000 hits. I like to browse the many, many pages of such models every now and then, imagining what could be done with some models with just the addition of a pistol or two...
