Got pictures of the rest of my characters available, so to start off with here's the other character loosely affiliated with Magos Laan Strum, but flexible enough to attach to pretty much any character. A combat servitor nominally named Spare parts.http://lh4.ggpht.com/_orTPwyJEoiY/SpQmIfzqPmI/AAAAAAAAAZ0/Q0FzKTslcHM/s800/InqN%20007.jpg
Unpainted as yet I'm afraid, simply because I quite honestly have very little idea how I want to paint him, so he keeps getting set aside. Spot the antique.
Moving into the more rationally evil guys, this is Laan Strum's main nemesis, the practically callous inquisitor Houden Iet-http://lh5.ggpht.com/_orTPwyJEoiY/SpQrNf-X-jI/AAAAAAAAAaQ/wkx5SlkvaH0/s800/Caingorm2009%20013.jpghttp://lh5.ggpht.com/_orTPwyJEoiY/SpQrSb5bNeI/AAAAAAAAAaU/advHE46AwTQ/s800/Caingorm2009%20014.jpg
Yes, I realise that's a lot of armour and firepower, as befits the 'practical' element of his character. Mostly, he's inquisitor Tyrus without the ridiculously ornate shoulder plates, and with the other decoration green-stuffed over to give a more austere, utilitarian feel. Not too happy with the paint job. Black armour is hard to make interesting.
Next is his much more lightly armed scout/agent, and adopted daughter, Eyedanon Iethttp://lh3.ggpht.com/_orTPwyJEoiY/SpRBORVdrbI/AAAAAAAAAaw/pOvpAPYwAi8/s800/InqN%20002.jpg
In common with her master, suffers a little from being among my first attempts at painting 54mm. Not much to say really, just some simple modifications to Barbaretta.
Occasionally lending close combat ability and defensive psychic powers is the priest/minor psyker Derwyddol Imddyfin(it's welsh, you're not supposed to pronounce it)http://lh4.ggpht.com/_orTPwyJEoiY/SpRDGanWu2I/AAAAAAAAAa0/2xwy1WEqPUw/s800/InqN%20003.jpghttp://lh6.ggpht.com/_orTPwyJEoiY/SpRDHrqTS2I/AAAAAAAAAbA/rIKsAwttT0U/s800/InqN%20004.jpg
My least converted model, the only change I made was the use of a lizardman standard to turn the shock baton into an ornate force staff. Honestly, I'd feel sort of bad cutting up the judge model.
Rounding up their team, Nomorov Iet.http://lh4.ggpht.com/_orTPwyJEoiY/SpRDM6wsCRI/AAAAAAAAAbE/5Mu4CrKB3L8/s800/InqN%20005.jpghttp://lh4.ggpht.com/_orTPwyJEoiY/SpRDN2g4DQI/AAAAAAAAAbI/fL49oJlJ_fc/s800/InqN%20006.jpg
I made this model for the 2009 hobby competition, mostly built round the concepts of the shield and chain halberd, using the Thorian inquisitor as base. The shield is made of weapon panels for BFG, and the halberd is sergeant Stone's, spare lizardman handweapons providing the chainblade.
Finally, their's my two most recent models-
The eccentric and elderly inquisitor lord Elbo Smogg-major kudos to anyone who can say where I got *that* name from.http://lh5.ggpht.com/_orTPwyJEoiY/SpRDPGdQlNI/AAAAAAAAAbM/TUUD5RDjbck/s800/InqN%20008.jpg
Thanks go to Precintomega for recommending Andrea's Wyatt Earp model as a base for this character. Along with the head of their grand templar, and some bright colours it gives a suitably distinguished feel. No guns, as he considers them uncivilised-see 'eccentric' above.
As for the rest of the grand templar, one of the spare judge head and the pretty bolt pistol that came with the Thorian inquisitor turned him into Brother Caynen Fedor, crusading redemptionist.http://lh4.ggpht.com/_orTPwyJEoiY/SpRDQi2FiSI/AAAAAAAAAbQ/3_qEvgIwnHM/s800/InqN%20009.jpg
Yes, I do have background excuses for the lack of a mask, and the choice of bolt pistol and sword over the more usual flamer, but more importantly I like this model as it is.
