Inquisitor (54mm) Vehicle Projects Log
« on: November 01, 2014, 12:27:20 AM »
This thread I will use to show various 54mm vehicle projects for Inquisitor that I've completed or are in progress. All the pics are from my hobby blog, as it seems to be the easiest way to link them.

My wargame hobby blog can be found here: http://middlingwars.wordpress.com/

These particular photos can be found on this post:

More info can be found on the blog post, but here the pics straight up.


I've started with the first vehicle I ever tried to make, a riot control vehicle/urban transport:

And a work-in-progress painting shot, with the beginnings of weathering and some detail work. Being a weird plastic, paint just doesn't want to stick to the kit:

Awesome. Reminds me of an Arbitrator paddy wagon I saw in White Dwarf years and years ago for Necromunda.

Many a time I've seen a toy truck and thought about buying it for Inquisitor purposes, but I've never bit the bullet. This is very inspiring.

I can't help but stumbling across weird toys that I think will add interesting vehicles to Inquisitor 54mm games.

I just picked up the "Big Boots Yeti Catcher" vehicle on clearance, and it scales almost perfectly - and will make an interesting mining vehicle (or transport) with a bit of conversion and paint-work.



Since I don't have the energy to scratchbuild a rhino or chimera in 54mm at present, I'm leaning on established (and cheap) kid's toys that scale well.

that yeti catcher looks like it could be a lot of fun in game, i especially like that it has a cage on the back for putting heretics in

I've started working on turning that toy into kit worthy of some 54mm Inquisitor. More here:

looking good, although had to judge the scale of it?
