Warhammer 40k – Inquisitor Lorr Finished!

Gideon Lorr is finished, kind of. There’s still a few bits and bobs I’d like to add to him, but I’m away for the next two weeks so it will have to wait until I’m back :). Here’s how he looks…

Warhammer 40k – More Inquisition!

After cracking through the Inquisitor commission, and the Eisenhorn/Ravenor books I’ve still got the bug for painting up a few more of these bad boys 🙂

Since I won’t be using them in games I decided to work towards something that I could sell on, once they are done, so went with the current cheese of an Inquisitor and 3 servo skulls!

Gideon Lorr is one of those models I’ve always loved, even if he is just a slightly different sculpt to the witchhunter I’ve just finished, so decided he would be a good place to start 🙂

Warhammer 40k – Inquisitor Commission!

Just got cracking into a commission for an Inquisitor to represent the clients roleplaying character and it couldn’t of come at a better time 🙂

I’ve just started rereading the Eisenhorn/Ravenor series and every time I do I always want to paint up some inquisition, any inquisition. The job at hand called for some slight conversion to the classic witchhunter model, one that happens to have been sitting in my bits box for a few years. So I got him out and set to it. The client was looking for him to be armed with a power sword and a purgatus crossbow. The sword was fairly easy, just requiring finding one that looked suitably epic and getting it in place, the crossbow was another matter. I tried to find some images for the blighter but only came up with one, luckily it came alongside a description:

More advanced Crossbows are also utilized by the Inquisitions Ordo Hereticus, and have become a symbol of their order. Known as the Purgatus Crossbow, it is a fusion of a Boltgun and a standard crossbow and is able to fire with more force than a Shotgun blast. However, it is its ammunition that is the true marvel; heavy wood and silver stakes inscribed with wards and runes designed to disrupt a creature’s contact with the Warp, making it an excellent weapon to hunt Psykers

This gave me a good basis for how to build it; a boltgun fused with a crossbow. Here’s what I came up with…

Next up is the painting, with the client supplying an image of the kind of look he would like me to go for…

Can’t wait to get cracking into this bad boy 🙂
