WIP: Inq28 – Sort Of

Good day all,

The next painted model for the warband will be up next weekend, along with his short story. He’s basically done but I need to give him a bit more work. Until then, I thought I would post a few models that I finished converting a little while back. I’ve altered the way I post WIP pictures. I think the shots I took of the models on the project box looked a bit naff, any thoughts on this are welcome (although I know it’s not the most thrilling of subject matters).

The squad leader of the =][= Alpha Legion Scions.

  
   

Which traitor colour scheme will he have?

  
 

Drummond, head of the household guard for a small Navis Nobilite House.

  
  

I normally stick to GW components however the legs are from Victoria Miniatures, an excellent Australia based company.

  

I sidelined my true-scale Deathwatch project some time ago but here’s the Dark Angel from the squad.

  

Here’s a scale comparison shot of the marine, it’s a lot darker than I intended as the marine is undercoated.

 
Right, well that’s it for now. I hope you’ve enjoyed the post and had a great weekend.

Cheers all, have an ace one.

Inquisitor WIP: A Legacy of Terror

Evening all,

Well, my plans to present the model that goes with chapter two of my Inquisition warband has gone quite awry. I’m in the final stages of painting him up, but he won’t be ready until next weekend now.

Instead, I thought I’d post an old model that I’ve taken a renewed interest in. 

 

The red right hand of the sergeant.

  
    
 
When the Tempestus Scions were released I was initially disappointed. I’d been really hoping that the Stormtroopers would get released in plastic. However, it didn’t take long for me to warm to the Scions. Once I had, I started to see the sheer amount of kit bash opportunity that they presented. I’ve no idea if I’m the first to combine the Space Marine Scout torso with the Scion legs, but I really like how they work together. The bulk of the torso seems to fit the athletic pose of the legs. The head is from the Imperial Guard command sprue and I think the Boltgun arm is from the Scout Storm set. I’ve deliberately mixed up the shoulder pads of the squad to give them less of a uniform look.

I originaly painted his armour in a charcoal grey, then I realised it bored the hell out of me. The Night Lords have always been my favourite legion, so I thought I’d have this chap wearing midnight clad. He’s actually part of a squad, but they’re at my mates house, so I’ll post them up at a later date.

The narrative is probably going to be that a radical Inquisitor, with an Istavaanian philosophical view, believes that the ways of the enemy had merit. Requisitioning a small number of Red Hunters, Exorcists or other Astartes tied to the Inquisition, he begins to train them in the image of the traitors. This squad will be based on the Night Lords. You may have noticed the red right hand of the scout. I like the idea that records of the Night Lords/Nostraman customs are difficult (to say the least) to come by. As such, the Inquisitor mistakes a reference to ‘red hands’, thinking that these were brutal individuals picked out to support the sergeants, commanders, etc. As opposed to it actually being man marked for death at his commanders leisure; perhaps while the commander is swirling a brandy round in his glass, while lounging comfortably in a throne.

I’ve also painted up one of my Scion models, with a Skitarii vanguard head, in GW Alpha Legion colours. I doubt I’ll do loyalist variants of all the traitors, but I think it could be a nice radical side project.

We are legion.

Anyway, hope you’ve enjoyed.

Have an ace one all.

Grey Knights True-Scale WIP Update

Evening all,

While painting the model for chapter two of the Inquisition warband, I thought I would take a quick snap of the progress on the Grey Knights. I used to be such a heretic as well… 

  
 
Have an ace eve all.

Kind Regards,

Inquisitor WIP: Interrogator Mortem Calvariam

Evening all,

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Years.

I’ve finally sorted my hobby setup at the new flat. As such, I will be posting chapter 2 of the Inquisitor warband short stories with a model pretty soon.

Till then here’s a mash up of Calvariam and a Dark Heresy background.

Have an ace one all,

Zombies, a Birthday and a Pledge of WIP

Evening all,

This week has been an oddly hectic one. The highlight being a mate’s birthday in Chichester. His girlfriend was pretty ace, as she organised a surprise zombie infestation in his old house. He and one other mate (who was in cahoots with his girlfriend) arrived at the house, where a blood stained note greeted them. They armed themselves with a nerf crossbow and a nerf whothefuckknows, then they started clearing the house of the walking dead. The highlight for me was when the birthday boy abandoned his bud on the stairs, as a zombie grappled and bit at him. The man of the hours escape was short lived. He bounded down the stairs to be met by a veritable horde of the dead. They bit and grabbed at him. An awesome moment was when he tripped. Then one of the more method acting zombies, that had been shot in the leg, began dragging itself along the floor after him, gnashing its teeth while making blood curdling groans. Happily ever after eh. Seriously great night though.

Anyways, I’m gonna post up some Khorne Daemonkin -BLAM- HERESY! of the Imperiums finest. The Inquisition WIP I have is getting to a stage were I’m happy to post it up. I know I said I was going to focus on Chaos, however what with the Ad Mech Skitarii out today (bought a set of infantry, conversions to be posted up soon) the Imperium of man has ensnared some of my attention.

So many conversion ideas, brainsplosion imminent!

Till very soon, have an ace one.
