Returning from hiatus
« on: February 24, 2016, 08:46:58 AM »
Hello conclavers! So I have been gone from the realms of Inquisitor for so long I had almost forgotten it. After moving house yet again I came across all the parts I have to build a war band. Full of renewed vigour I pressed an old mate of mine into service as my rival and so our journey begins anew.

Unfortunately for most here I can't invite you round for tea and bolter shells as I live in Aus. But I am still hoping to pick your collective brainpower to guide us through the pitfalls. In response I will offer my services for out of the box thinking and regale you with many a bad dad joke (it's ok I'm a qualified bad dad).

See you all on the threads!

Welcome (Back?) to the Conclave!

Pity we probably won't see you at UK IGTs then, but I'm hoping we'll see (many?) battle reports of your collective adventures, and plenty of images of your modelling and artwork. The more pictures and stories the better!  ;D

Welcome to the 'clave mate. Heh, I've just been bought a 'bad dad jokes' book. Maybe we can swap jokes?

So what's the plan? What conversions are you planning? Pics or it doesn't count though...

Hi, Still-hoping-to-pick-your-collective-brainpower-to-guide-us-through-the-pitfalls, I'm Marco. :P

A bizarre name or not (can I shorten it to SHTPYCBTGUTTP?), welcome!

Oh come on Marco. It's clear he meant he's still called hoping-to-pick-your-collective-brainpower-to-guide-us-through-the-pitfalls, as opposed to having changed his name to, for example, annoyingly-literal-wolfman-who-knows-everything. We already have one of those.  ;D

It's ok, I much prefer coffee and lasbolts anyway.

You'll fit right in then. Enjoy your stay.

Yes, well. I do lack one of the core qualifications in telling dad jokes.

I'm not sure that was good enough to qualify for a dad joke...

For me the plan is to finally build up a war band of the Ordo Sepulturum with an extreme radical bent. With the focus on Nurgle and his lucky number being seven I'll have a large pool of members with which to pick and choose. Each member should reinforce the theme of the band but be individual enough by representing each of the deadly sins. Among the members of the team some conversions I have begun/planned include:
Tyrus and old metal 40k daemon prince to act as inquisitor
Devlan/bloodhound wielding a scyth as a farmer turned savage
The devout sisters tied together to a post and writhing under the influence of possession as a single daemonhost
Barbaretta reposed to take on a stalking hunter look
Most importantly is familiar/mind link the two headed rat to a mutant because imo that rat is epic and gets overlooked way too often.
Also have Gruss and Eisenhorn to round out the ensemble but intentions for them are unclear. SHTPYCBTGUTTP may just have to become the daemonic name of the entity plaguing my heroes

they're fairly interchangable, miniature-wise

Those are very nice and along the lines of what I'm aiming for, though less red more green
