INQ28 - Ecclesiarchy Priest

All has been quiet on the blogging front recently, I'm afraid. I've just not been up to that much hobby-wise, apart from a trip to Nottingham to visit my good buddy Fulgrim, who was heavily involved in the play-testing and design of the recent Death Watch: Overkill game. So we obviously spent a chunk of time playing that. And drinking. And eating. And watching Star Wars.  Good times, yo.

I did finish up this fellow, who will be a part of my Ordo Hereticus retinue, in the role of... priest / preacher / general ecclesiarchy God-Emperor bothering busy body.  The model is from Black Scorpion's range of Cutlass models, and was part of a very bargainous set I picked up at Salute last year.

Here he is. Sweet beard, dude.

Daemons of Nurgle - Soul Grinder version 3.0 (W.I.P)

What-ho interwebz friends.  I have been busy making a third Soul Grinder of Nurgle in order to fill out the requirements of the Forge Host element of the Daemons formation from Curse of the Wulfen.

This is made from a Maggoth Lord (that I bought off Lee ages ago) and one of  those Ad Mech Kataphron battle servitors. Plus some green stuff cabling.

I think if I ever get my sorry self around to doing a Dark Mechanicus project, this could also adequately serve as an Iron Strider or whatever they are called.

Regardless, it shall now sit waiting forever to be undercoated, and then a further 73 aeons before being painted.

INQ28: Ordo Hereticus savant / scribe

Introducing Himanshu Gallapathie, chief scribe and savant to Inquisitor Ganesha Singh, of the Ordo Hereticus.

This model is from the Black Scorpion range of models for Cutlass.

Today I am a man of few words.

Inquisitor Ganesha Singh of the Ordo Hereticus

A goodly while back, you may remember that I posted up this model unpainted. For those that are interested, you can see it here.

Over the last couple of weeks I've been adding a bit of paint here and there on an almost daily basis, and this is what I've ended up with. Although the company producing the core miniature here is basically morally bankrupt and has seemingly ripped off a load of FWs Horus Heresy sculpts (I will name no company names here), this particular sculpt I felt was too good to pass up, and didn't seem to be a direct rip of any GW or FW stuff I was aware of, although the influence is clear. I also really like the wimple aspect of this model, which seems to communicate a high degree of piety when cross-referenced with the attire favoured by nuns in the Catholic church of recent centuries.

I decided to get rid of the small child that accompanies the original model, and replace her with a nice big wolf hound form the GW Orion King of The Woods kit. Obviously, I had to give him a bionic eye and a minor cybernetic enhancement to make him a bit more future-appropriate.

I decided that I would continue the theme of dark skin tones and white armour with golden / brassy trim I started with on the Adepta Sororitas Novitiates, of which I have also included a group shot.

Coming soon to bring puritanical justice to a dark corner of the Imperium near you...

INQ28 Adepta Soritas Novitiate #3 - 5

It seems that in an undue burst of productivity I have managed to complete the 3 remaining members of the squad of Novitiates, including their Sister Superior. There's not much to add here to what I've said about the previous 2 Novitiates at this stage, save that I've made considerable progress on the Ordo Hereticus inquisitor to which they are Oathed.  A separate post on that individual will follow at a later time...

INQ28 Adepta Soritas Novitiate #2

Here's the second of 5 Adepta Sororitas Novitiates. Not really too much more to add in terms of wording, so I'll just throw the pics out there...

INQ28 Adepta Soritas Novitiate

All has been quiet on the Tony of Nurgle front for almost two months. I have, however built a few models to represent Adepta Sororitas Novitiates (of which this is one) for use in games of Inquismunda. Please note that I cannot take full credit for these builds, as I based them on something I'd seen in an article on Bell of Lost Souls some time back. because I thought they looked cool, so I'd like to extend my thanks to whoever came up with the idea of using Dream Forge's Eisenkern Assault Troops in this way. They are combined with Statuesque miniatures heroic scale female heads, and Games Workshop Space Marine bolters.

I'd also point out that this is my first proper attempt at doing non-Caucasian flesh tones. I'm fair-to-crap at Caucasian flesh tones as it is, so I thought I'd throw caution to the wind and run the risk of accidentally offending people by attempting Southern Asian skin. I really couldn't say whether it looks authentic or not, and I really hope that I haven't offended anyone. I'm trying to do a good thing here, as minorities and females are woefully under-represented on the grimdark table tops of the 41st Millenium...

It's also my first attempt in quite a long time to give a model a relatively clean finish. Normally, obviously, I'm all doom and gloom, and muck and rust and this and that and the other. But, what the hell, right? Thought I'd give it a whirl.

I've possibly ballsed up the blade of the sword, though.

In terms of rules, I thought it would be a fairly strong idea for the armour to be similar to space marine scout armour, giving a 4+ save. I also thought that as these sisters will be mere trainees (another parallel to scouts), that I might make them take a leadership each turn, which, if they fail, they would be forced to pray (unless assaulted by an enemy) until their next turn. Obviously, I'm open to suggestions here, and it'll be up for discussion amongst my gaming group too...
