PostSubject: the grim darkness of the future   Sat 9 Feb 2013 - 5:35

I recently got back in touch with an old friend of mine, actually the very person who introduced me to Warhammer back in the day.

After suffering through the way too long Hobbit movie we agreed upon trying to get some games of Inquisitor going.

As you may know Inquisitor is having a bit of a renaissance, enough to even get some spotlight in White Dwarf. Time will tell if this is a good thing or not for Inquisitor players.

At the moment most of my ever swelling warband is still work in progress to some degree or an other. But it is always cool to see pictures and get feedback so I decided to post them anyway. And since I can't post them in my gallery this might as well serve as kind of a painting and modelling blog.

Names, backstories, believes and random facts will follow once they are ready.

So here are the miscreants, scum, anti-heroes and deviants.

VERY COOL STUFF! The Faceless Babe & the Guy with the Plague Mask are especially so. Inquisitor is one of G.W.'s games that seemed to have a lot of modeling potential; doing it up in 28mm makes a helluva lot more sense that the 54+mm that G.W. introduced. Have FUN with the Beasty & keep us posted as the game develops. thumbsup

Thanks DefNala!

I believe that Inq is perhaps the best game ever produced by Games Workshop when it comes to sheer possibilities regarding the gaming pieces. The so called correct size of 54mm might have been a good idea at the time since the miniatures back then weren't as detailed. But today with Finecast and the excellent plastic kits there isn't really any point in playing in anything else than 28mm.

I have been a bit busy with my son and mordheim but I have managed to get a little paint on the crew. There is still so much to do.

Having dug into some old White Dwarfs I got really inspired by the punk ethos that could be seen back then. The miniatures were so colorful and did not have the same strict regimented look of today's 'Eavy metal. There was more room for creativity, it is the same idea and look I have tried to recapture in this gang of rogues.

I bought this lovely old chaos thug on ebay. He truly oozes charm and punk attitude! Unfortunately the face is rather worn but he is too cool to face the hacksaw.

++ Identity: Westwood ++

++ Codename: Provocateur ++

++ Born: Unknown ++

++ Homeworld: Armageddon ++

++ Hive: Hades ++

++ Occupation: Criminal, assassin, enforcer ++

++ Status: Active, wanted dead or alive for multiple homicides ++

++ Thought for the day: Only humanity deserves salvation ++







And this following chap is of course a familiar sighting. It was freezing on the day I sprayed him so the paint did not flow freely. It was really really stupid of me to try spraying in the cold, I'll have to see if I can salvage his face in the painting process.


++ Identity: Gusstav Berenholm ++

++ Codename: Krokodil ++

++ Born: 299 M41 ++

++ Homeworld: Asgard ++

++ Occupation: Imperial Guard, Asgard 492th Regiment, "Honored Sons", 5th Company, Sergeant-at-arms, honorably discharged ++

++ Status: Active, employer unknown ++

++ Thought for the day: Death, lighter than a feather. Duty, heavier than a mountain ++






This little guy was originally made for my Sylvanian veterans, possibly a deranged halfling. But due to a sudden change of mind he got sucked into a warp storm and ended up in the 42nd millenium.

++ Identity: Siouxie ++

++ Codename: The Rain ++

++ Created: 355 M41 ++

++ Homeworld: Agripinaa ++

++ Occupation: Servitor, controller of the Seraphim Choir ++

++ Status: Active, employer unknown ++

++ Thought for the day: His will be done, as in life so in death ++






This freak was originally made for Mordheim, he is a member of the Grave Robbers warband. However I'm seriously considering giving him a new base and conscripting him into a Inquisitorial entourage. What do you think?



And speaking of freaks, what is this? Not sure yet but it might just be a nemesis of some kind.

Once again COOL STUFF! The minis bring to mind John Blanche's bizarre illustrations...this is a plus with moi. Keep up the GREAT WORK! thumbsup

If the victim of the cold spray doesn't work out, a soak in Simple Green of Ammonia followed by a quick scrub with a stiff tooth brush will get him ready for a second attempt. We work in a very forgiving medium. What a Face

Thanks Def! Always appreciate the feedback!

I don't have my camera right now so there are no new pictures but yesterday I played my first game of =I=. It was fun, weird and at times confusing. But mostly the fun bit.

The rogue trader scum I faced brought a heavy bolter to a knife fight so my team were definitely out matched Smile

Westwood was decapitated by a power sword, the Cure war blasted with heavy bolter fire before being destroyed by a Inferno pistol and Ivy Echo's grand last act of defiance was brought low when she was shot down by a needle pistol and the frag grenade she was holding ended her world in fire.

So yeah it didn't go as planned.

I'll try to post some more pictures this evening when I get Gusstav Berenholm back from the Fang, and then I think the first of the Sylvanian veterans are ready to be revealed.

++Necromunda gang, Adeptus Administratum++





















I apinted this gang last summer for a game of Necromunda. They were a lot of fun to build and paint and where as I don't think Necromunda is as interesting as Mordheim it still proved to be an enjoyable afternoon.

The Boys from the Hive are LOOKIN' GOOD! Your flair for kit bashing/converting comes to the fore with these Fellows. Your brushwork, particularly the delicate freehand on the scrolls & seals, the palid flesh tones, & color choices are OUTSTANDING. GREAT WORK!   thumbsup

Somehow I don't see these Guys(?) as being successful infiltrators. That aside, they are UBERCOOL creations/conversions...TERRIFIC modeling, painting, & color selection AND VERY IMAGINATIVE. GREAT WORK!   thumbsup
