Mother of Mercy Modelling Megathread
« on: July 11, 2017, 11:27:04 AM »
As many of you should be aware by now after my repeated, obnoxious attempts at a recruitment drive, I'll be running an Inquisitor event later this year called Mother of Mercy. This of course means only one thing for me: getting finger out and getting on with some modelling.

I'll be bringing along several warbands on the day for those who want to try Inquisitor but don't have the models to do so, and this thread will exist both as a record of stuff I'm making for the day and any older warbands I'll be updating and giving a lick of fresh paint to.

First up, some thugs! Apologies for the weird photos, I took these on a whim several months back before I started painting them. Better photos will come as they start seeing some pigment.




On the left we have Conan the Unkillable, a lowly hive ganger cursed with immortality (or so they say...) and on the right we have TJ Razor, a salty void-dog with an intense passion and flair for knives.

Here's a slightly better photo of Conan, pinched from the 54mm weapons thread. I tried to model in a butt-tonne of bullet holes into his clothes to go for that Luke Cage look. He might have a powerful regeneration mutation, but it doesn't mean his clothes do.

He's going to be a pale, pasty-skinned underhive ganger with a large red freehand tatto on his left arm. He is/was a member of the Red Hand Gang, and they show their prowess in combat by adding stripes to their tattooed left hand. Needless to say, Conan will be a man of many stripes.



TJ Razor is a heavily tattooed voidsman and part of the Pursers Grim - a bunch of interstellar thugs that secret themselves aboard all the vessels in the sector, acting as informants, assassins and hired muscle to those on board. They feed information back to their central players on Mercy, who ensure that information gets to the right people, for the right price.

An Inquisitor walks into a bar - he rolls D100 to see if he hits it.

Looking great mate!! Really like the TJ Razor chap.

I can't see the back of him but for a man who loves knives.. He seems to only have one ;P

Bah! I guess I shall take some ever-so-slightly-not finished pictures then to prove you wrong :P

He has no less than six visible knives, ranging from big 'n' choppy to small 'n' throwy, and he will benefit from the 'Always has another knife' special rule, so I doubt he'll run out in game!

He's basically finished now, just need to do a bit more detail on the base and I can move on to Conan.

Sumptuous facial tattoo work. Would really like to know how you did that.

This thread will hopefully get me out of a 54mm slump too!

He reminds me very much of the film "Warriors". Great work all round and, yeah, the face is awesome. The tattoo's on the back of his head are great as well!

A very, very long afternoon! Unfortunately I couldn't find a shortcut, it was just lots of layers of thinned paints and some good reference material to work with. The skin was Flayed One Flesh with a Nuln Oil wash, then the tatts were painted over the top in a dark grey (which took frickin' ages). Just a highlight with Flayed One Flesh afterwards to pick out the edges and highlights. I'm thinking to have another lighter layer on the top, but we shall see where my procrastination takes me.

Well that'd be lovely! Nothing like publicly committing to running an event to get the blood pumping :p
