Rebuilding a collection
« on: January 20, 2017, 09:32:04 PM »
Sadly gave away my inquisitor collection a couple of years after launch but have decided to collect again and will be docenting my progress here.

First up is a lovely resin cast I got on eBay with the addition of a sanguinary guard sword, some SM pouches / seals / grenades:

That looks awesome!! The conversion I mean. The 'en garde' pose really works on the model. Although part of me thinks he's telling someone off for trying to touch his plasma pistol :D

Really pleased with how the pose came out, was going to have him testing on the sword like the cane that the model comes with...But it looked too nice to pass up :)

I love that model. Gives me some inspiration for my next character.

Can't wait to see it painted.

I've been tempted to use that model to represent a Knight pilot.
Maybe.
Nice work.

Very cool coversion!

Never thought of using SG weapons, which is silly because I have plenty of them and they're easily large enough for ][ - great idea! :)

Looks great.  He looks ready to slice and dice!

Good luck rebuilding your collection!

To be a little more precise, it was Lord Borak who sculpted and cast these: http://www.the-conclave.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=2538.msg36113#msg36113

I've been tempted to use that model to represent a Knight pilot.
Sigh. I really *should* find the time to work on the Warhound and her crew again.

Captain L. Rollin: "Nonsense. Never heard of it."
Birgen: "Pick a window. I'll demonstrate".

Thanks for your purchase!  ;D

.... and yes. I am to blame for this model ;) Well, kinda, Alyster Wick commissioned me to do something based on art work.

@Goodshipalbion: What colour scheme were you thinking of doing? (I am yet to paint one :S)

Thinking dark blue uniform as don't want him to look too much like a commissar but more like an old navy boy

lovely pose, looks very stern.

as for colour scheme, id base the imperial navy on a blue tunic, cream trousers look:
