Have had some ideas as to what role it may take but was curious as to whether it's a GW model or other?

Hmmm at first I thought it was some sort of inquisition penitent but it's hard to tell from my phone, scale looks a bit off to by GW to me but as I said my phone doesn't show it properly

That's no GW model I've ever seen. Might be something from the Rogue Trader era.

Nothing that I recognise.

But the glory days of Rogue Trader are fading to mist in the back of my cluttered brain as it is anyways.....

I actually quite like the model. Wondering if perhaps it's from some small company from back in the day.....necromunda? specialist games?

It's not a Necromunda miniature. I know that range pretty well.

It appears to be a gladiator or a pit fighter of some sort. It doesn't look quite right for "modern-ish" GW. It could be an older GW model or it might be from another range.

Style-wise, it looks like a Warhammer Fantasy model from the 1980's; my initial thought would be Chaos.

If you take the base off, on the metal strip attached to his feet it will have GW (year) on one side and a word for the model on the other, if it's GW. You can then hunt it down on google

There is nothing on the (pewter?, lead? not sure) base sprue that I can see... The idea off it being a gladiator or PITFIGHTER is awesome tho!
