A little later than expected (shocker), here’s the next model with a micro narrative for my main Inquisitor warband. The first part can be found here. The narrative will tell a short story but my aim is to make each piece stand alone as a snapshot of the character.
Clumsy hands wrestled with the door. His head thumped against the thick steel.
‘Out’, thump;’out’, thump; he would lurch forward, letting his thick skull lead the way to freedom. Yet the door stood cool and unyielding.
‘Out!’, thump. He left his head resting against the thick door.
‘Puh, Puh, puh-lease?’ His hollow plea echoed inside the sparse cell.
‘Booker?’ The metal woman’s voice sang through the room. His head jerked away from the door.
‘Time to go Booker. You’ll behave this time?’
He stared upwards, a glazed look plastered across his features. He answered without knowing whether the metal woman would hear him. ‘I, I good’. Gormless features twitched with hope.
‘Heads up display now active’, Booker’s gaze swung left to right looking in his cell for the metal woman.
‘Booker, follow the the =][=’ her voice was calm, reassuring yet firm.
He continued to turn till he stood facing the door once more, letting out a grunt ‘out’.
‘Yes Booker, out, and there will be plenty more to thump than just a door’.
The corner of his mouth reared up, locking in an ungodly grin.
‘Look after Cal and take care you big lug’.
I enjoyed putting Booker together, he’s pretty much stock built but I did green stuff his neck to alter the way the head sat. I also repositioned the left leg, however I need to clean the joint up. Despite posting him up I actually plan on doing some more work on him. The skin needs a wash and re-highlighting and the =][= tattoo needs blending in, it was supposed to look like the skin was raw but it’s a bit too obvious at the moment. Overall I’m fairly pleased and I’m happy to move on to the next model of the warband. Thoughts are always welcome.
Cheers for reading, have an ace one.
