Something tells me I succumbed to the temptation last time around as well, but with all these retrospectives flying around, it's hard to resist getting involved. The secondary reasoning is that I'm coming to the end of another squad for my Imperial Fists, and I'm really reckoning it's time to start something else at 54mm - some feedback will inspire me to get myself in gear, I hope! Apologies that some of the photos are a bit small - I must have messed around with the photo settings at some point.
Starting at the beginning is sensible, I guess...Inquisitor Herodotus Benedict Saussure, Ordo Hereticus Terran, Guardian of the Conclave
was my first non-standard Inquisitor
model, and I still enjoy gaming with him today. Inquisitor Goddard and he have recently been clashing in Dark Magenta battle reports.
Accompanying Saussy is his ever-loyal Interrogator, Richard Kuerten
. Unfortunately, he was painted in something of a hurry and I've never been happy as happy with him as the others. Maybe I'll re-model Richard one day in the future?First Sergeant Ernst Asimov
, permanently seconded to duties under the Holy Ordos.
The arco-flagellant Deus XVII
, Saussure's terror-weapon of last resort.
Before I moved onto a new warband, I took time-out to paint the gorgeous, gorgeous Eldar Ranger
figure, which is still a favourite feature of the model range.
Then I launched myself into my newer, and slowly-growing, warband, the head of which is Inquisitor (or Interrogator) Nathaniel Carter
, my young Inquisitor who was raised to a full member of the Ordos after completing his training under the watchful eye of Saussure.Mikael Durant, Inquisitorial Ward
and general licenced muscle, for all those times when subtlety is not
Oh, and his dog...
Not held in a position of trust by his new master, Sanctioned Psyker Vasa Sark
is nonetheless accepted as being a useful, if unsavoury, servant of the Inquisition by Carter.
Reflecting his strong ties to the Imperial faith as his moral beaon, Carter is accompanied by Serghar Kasl, Inquisitorial Black Priest
After I finsihed the initial four, I had a break from 54mm modelling, and I got myself back into the swing of things with a model most people don't seem to like, the Eversor Assassin
And then, in what was a major - yet massively satisfying - project documented on the last 'Clave, I tackled Brother-Sergeant Tybalt Andrus, Fifth Company, Imperial Fists Chapter, Adeptus Astartes
I was back with the bug now, and added the last two (current) members of Carter's warband, though I'm ashamed to say that I've not gamed with either of them yet so, if I had ever thought of names for them, they've faded into the back of my memory.
First up came my Drop Trooper
, put together with kind support from Conclave members offering the odd important piece or two (cheers, Nick and Tim!).
And finally, Carter's aged mentor
, who has been tempted back into active Inquisitorial service to pass on his wealth of experience to Nathaniel. I wanted the look of an aged gentleman when I put him together.
So, there we go, one and all - not the biggest collection going, but I'm so painfully slow with a brush these days that it's never going to be! I have plenty of detail shots available if anyone wants to see any more angles of any particular pieces?
