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 🙂

Added the final few touches to the Inquisitor and he’s now on his way to the customer 🙂

I’m very happy with how he turned out, but I’ll let you judge for yourselves…

I thoroughly enkoyed painting this chap up, and I think I may do a couple of other Inquisitors in the near future 😀

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…

Inquisitor1 Inquisitor3I think it looks suitably badass 😀

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 🙂

Warhammer 40k – More Ebay Goodness!

Everything went pretty well with my last clearout, its now time for the second lot. I’m getting rid of most of my 40k stuff, primarily because I’ve not been enjoying the game of late. Don’t get me wrong, I love the universe and the miniatures but it’s becoming too expensive to get a good size force and I feel the rules themselves are a little too bloated and geared towards the latest release for my liking. Secondly it means money to push into the games I am enjoying and get started in games I’m interested in, the main one of which will be Warmahordes :D.

Here’s what I’m getting rid of this time and click on the image to head over to the listing…

Warhammer 40k – Stormraven Base

Had a break from the hobby this weekend, so the wife and I could have a long weekend to celebrate our first year of marriage :D, and much enjoyment was had by the pair of us.

With the jetbike finished I’m now onto the next job, which is the base for a Stormraven. The client is looking for something with that little bit extra, nothing too fancy, just an obliterated nid. So with that in mind I scavenged through my bits box and found a few of my old hivefleet, Irb-Nri, and felt that the Gargoyle would be the best fit for the job. Here’s what I’ve got so far:

Warhammer 40k – White Scars Jetbike Progress!

Today I have been working on the sword, cloak, animal skin and face on the White Scars jetbike. I managed to finish all of them off other than the face and some final touches to the animal skin and here are the results:

I’m particularly pleased with how the sword has turned out and chose the colours in order to match the Kor’sarro Khan I did earlier in the year for the same client. This was done by blening from blackto naggaroth purple, then to genestealer purple to white. In regards to the animal skin, I decided to do this in a semi leopard pattern, as I think this suits the White Scars more than a standard grey or brown affair you’d find on say a Space Wolf. I still think this needs a little work just to pull the colour out a little bit more. Next up is soem more work on the face. hair and beard as so far I have only laid down the base colours for these.

In other news I received a couple of MVPs as part payment for the Dreadball robots commission, so I’ll be painting these up alongside the Enforcer once the jetbike is done 😀
