Inquisitor warband update - henchman #2 and new conversions

Work has been hell over the last three weeks. However, I have managed to find a bit of time to do a bit of converting and painting, which has proved to give some serious light relief.

I painted up the Master of the Psyber Menagerie, who also fulfils the role of Master of the Hunt. Pretty happy with how he turned out.  This chap has Inquisitor Daubenton's psyber falcon upon his wrist. The other arm features a psyber lure for the falcon, and on his gauntlet is an inbuilt data slate which receives transmissions from the falcon. I've also given him an auspex and one of those hefty looking rifles from the Tempestus Scions kit.

As for the two new conversions, the first is Floki Vikernes. Floki was an initiate to the Space Wolves chapter of the Adeptus Astartes. However, as the complicated surgical process progressed, his body rejected the implanted progenoid glands. From that point on he served in the Fang in a much more humble capacity. At some presently undisclosed point, Inquisitor Daubenton collaborated with the Wolves, and Floki became a part of his team.  Depressed and self-blaming over not becoming Astartes like his brothers, Floki now finds solace burning the impure of spirit with his flamer, and burning whatever else Daubneton insists should be burned. Realistically speaking, he has an unhealthy fascination with fire.

The second new conversion is most definitely a work in progress and combines two as yet unnamed individuals. The rough idea is that the female is some kind of seer / diviner that has visions, and then collapses. The male is just her bodyguard, and stoically carries her around once she has collapsed. I may not end up using this, as I can't tell if it's a good idea or not. I'll see how the rest of the conversion process goes, I suppose! Apologies for the blurry conversion pics, but you get the idea!

  1. Falconer looks great. Really like the display read-out effects you've done.

    Beardy not-wolf fellow is a good kitbash. Would be cool if you were to paint in some gnarly sticking scars to account for his surgeries?

    Last idea is super cool. LOVE the idea that the minder would have to cart the frail psyker about after she pops her load.
