Hi there,

As a returning player of Inquisitor I brought some (a lot of ?) miniatures and will post my painting here.

I begun with "Slick Devlan", here a WIP :

I agree.
I like how clean it looks too - an appearance I am finding infinitely more preference for of late. Not sure why.

That's probably my favourite 54mm head these days.
I like the work on the hair, and I especially like the work on the eyes.

I've been neglecting the P&M forum too long - that's some absolutely great face painting, and wonderfully clean colours across the board.

Very nice non-metallic metals on the mastiff too.

Nice work on the special enforcer model - we seem to have shared the paint-scheme!
I think you've done it better justice though, especially in the area of NMM.
Clean as always, very nice stuff.

Gorgeous blending. 

It is nice to see the original models in their unconverted states.  There really were some great designs, and a huge variety of styles, quite at odds with the 40k models of the time.

I've had that conversation a few times - there's a lot of people out there who clearly don't remember that the 28mm range in 2001 was nothing like it is today. (Don't get me wrong though, I do like 28mm Inquisitor, but I think 54mm was the right choice back in 2001).

As far as the lovely work on these models... I don't think there's a lot I can add that hasn't already been said by others!

Thank to all of you !
Those miniatures are just a blast to paint and the sculpting is really nice. I really need to put my hands on the miniatures i am missing in collection, bit the prices for "rare" miniatures is just insane.

Some models are real surprises for me : the official painting scheme isn't serving well the models and I really want to give them a try.

I've seen your stuff over on the FB page. It's all great stuff. Especially the sword on that Eldar Ranger!! Any chance of some close ups? :D
