That guy is really completely badass. A real  hunter capable of bringing down any prey.

His first game was a little disappointing, attracting more missiles than is generally healthy, but his following games he clawed back a bit of dignity by stealthing around and stabbing people. He shot a lot of groins as well, which made me happy.

including throwing himself down a flight of stairs? :D

great conversion and fantastic paintjob - well worth Best Miniature  ;D
i make no apologies, i warned you my ability to roll ones was infectious...

Hey, it was either the stairs, or another three actions of blessed bolt pistol rounds!

I'm a little disappointed I didn't get to fight Heroka Vendile's Giant Spider of Doom.. I wrote the Big Game Hunter special rule in anticipation for such a beastie  :'(

I would quickly point out for anyone who wasn't there that I was on the receiving end of said spider, not the provider (that was Bloodpact / Neil Jim Gallagher).

Hern is an excellent model though Rob, deserving winner of the P&M prize.

It's all fun and games until someone shoots their own guy with a Graviton gun instead of the MASSIVE SPIDER.

It's a great model.  I'll see if I can bring a knarloc for him to hunt next meet.
I had better point out, that some of the clubs I represent are of a military bent.

Definitely my favourite model from the Conclave in the last six months or so (although when Dave finishes his female Rogue Trader conversion, he might get a run for his money!).

beautifully painted, I loved it before but now he looks amazing, I did not even realize what head you used before the painting. I have 3 of those and they don't seem to fit with any of my models and you used it on the most unlikely of characters and made it work. I guess I should take them out and think out of the box (or in the Kroot mouth)  ;D

Definitely one of my favourite models on the Conclave ever. An 11/10. The originality of the model, the character it oozes, and the execution and painting all give this model the bonus points to raise it into a class above most models. It makes me quite embarrassed by my own efforts.

me either. Just realised it was Jan now! Look totally different to my use of it. The variety of the limited parts available to us never ceases to amaze me.

*ahem*

I can't believe it's been three months since I've painted any Inquisitor models. A shameful display. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like much is going to live up to Hern, so I'm going through my Box Of Shame and finishing up models that I've built and undercoated, but never got round to painting.

First up is Traitor Guardsman Tlashcala. Nothing hugely exciting here, but I've had that arm kicking about in my bits box for so long, its about time it got used for something.






Secondly I have Feth Korpik, whose parents didn't like him very much when they named him. He is actually an abandoned model by a friend who no longer plays, and I simply love how well all these parts fitted together. No greenstuff was used to fill joints, just a clean cut to transplant the old Dark Eldar weapon over a guardsman lasgun arm. He's been adopted into my own warband now, and I fully expect his previous warband will get a touch of paint over the coming weeks as well, or will get dunked in turps and stripped for bits.

Curiously, these photos have come out really grainy, and I'm not sure why. I havn't changed any camera settings, and light conditions are as good as they usually are when I take photos, any ideas why they're not as crisp as they should be? Considering that Hern's snaps were taken with this camera, identical settings and similar lighting conditions, I'm a little concerned. Do cameras degrade?

CCDs can age - however, I've never seen it happen that quickly.

I suspect the problem here is the batteries. CCDs take "darker" images if they're not getting enough juice, and it looks like that's happened here - the camera's auto ISO has then cut in to try to compensate for it, which is the source of the increased image noise.

Try new batteries. Of course, better lighting wouldn't hurt either.

Birgen: "Pick a window. I'll demonstrate".

I'll try all these things, thanks.

It's actually the Eldar Ranger hooded head and the Bounty Hunter's body, fits like a glove!

Another great model just from an original combination of parts.  One of the best trenchcoat / hooded figures I've seen. 

Traitor guardsman as mad as ever, good to see.
