Quite a few companies have 54mm samurai - have you looked at Andrea or Pegaso?

Yep, already got them on the list.  A few people on here have used them and I think I've used them once - never heard any complaints about them.

Did you find a Samurai to suit you?

Some good models on this page for samurai
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tanhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

Out of curiosity what are you plans in inquisitor for a sumaria type model? A samurai space marine? I think I recall that article actually, makes me remember how much better GW and white dwarf used to be.... :(

I was just wondering what armatures you would reccomend? Preferablly relatively cheap.

Also some of the modelling guide links don't work...

If you look at the list you'll see I linked to one at Historex by something like Fruilmodell - I've used them quite a few times and found them to be very good. Also, if you read the article I wrote for DM1 there's a link to a tutorial for making wire armatures - again it's a technique I've used and have been happy with. But there are plenty of ways to make an armature - you just need to decide which suits you best and is right for the project you have planned.

Send me a PM with a list of which ones and I'll update the list.

Have you got this one? http://www.antenocitisworkshop.com/ Not 54mm I know but some of their sci-fi stuff could be very useful for Inq28. I especially like the Praying Mantis: http://www.antenocitisworkshop.com/preying-mantis.html

I've started a list of Inq28 resources at the bottom of the original post - if anyone has anything they want added, let me know.

http://cmdante.blogspot.com/2011/01/miniature-sculpting-proportions-chart.html CMDante's rather good Human/Marine proportions chart. I was uncertain about the massive size difference between human and Marine at 54mm, but the Artemis model is indeed huge...

A marine is supposed to around 7' to 7' 6" tall - the one on that chart is far, far too tall.

I'm going to put in a shout for Station Road Baseboards for buying plasticard.

They do A4 and A3 sheets in lots of thicknesses, in both black and white, at seems to be the best all-round prices I could find. Delivery was pretty swift and not exorbitant (given that plasticard is actually quite heavy in bulk).
They don't do embossed card or tubing, but I found it was cheaper to split my ordering, given how much some places put a premium on their plasticard - probably because it's in individually wrapped packets or some other poncy nonsense.

So, if you need a huge pile of the stuff for making Inquisitor scale vehicles or you just need to stock up for the next year or so of projects, recommended.
