Nestorian Infestation II – Painting experiments

To get my contribution for the Nestorian Infestation campaign ready, I had to pick up a brush for the first time in eleven months and decided right away to try a wash-only approach to make things even more challenging interesting. 😀

Priming with an old Skull White spray can, I first washed the whole model black before drybrushing it again with Skull White. This gave me a nice pre-shaded model to get the washes working.

A first layer of Reikland Fleshshade resulted in a way darker skin tone than anticipated (probably not enough drybrushing on some parts), so I switched to the orange cloth until I figured out what to do with the skin.

Four or five layers of Casandora Yellow later I had an amazing robe and was content with the outcome. 🙂

Nestorian Infestation I – Wanna buy some fresh air?

Nestorian Infestation I – Wanna buy some fresh air?

Just one credit and you may take a deeeep breath…

Seeing one of Big Boss Redskullz posts in the Inquisitorium group I stumbled over the Nestorian Infestation project – a new collaboration between him, Echoes of the Imperium and WilhelMiniatures.

A world infested by a Genestealer Cult, the only Inquisitor there in league with the cult and an incoming Deathwatch force make a really intriguing setting. To populate the world with more life than just the three project founders’ own warbands, Big Boss Redskullz called for community contributions: civilians of all sorts to be used in their games. A really interesting opportunity for yet another side project, albeit one that is easily completed instead of clogging my hobby time. So I jumped on the contribution train and worked out my first civilian concept. 😀

As the Nestorian Infestation uses a special kind of airborne spores to infect imperial citizens, my first idea was a clean air / oxygen dealer who operates in the most polluted industrial areas where the spores have a hard time getting through all that respiratory gear. Of course “clean air” is an elastic term in his case and contains a whole lot of spores to spread the infection. I guess pure oxygen would work as a nice addicting drug for workers who breath more fumes than air in their daily life.

Being busy with my Carnival of Chaos, which utilised whatever parts I had lying around, I tried the same approach for the civilian. Therefore inspiration was closely tied to my bitz box. In there I found another old Electro-priest and a lot of Cultists. Mixed with a nice Genestealer Hybrid head and Tyranid parts (including a blue Genestealer hand from the early 3rd edition of 40k) this fellow was created:

Some minor filling and sanding needs yet to be done, but I’m happy my idea worked out quite like I anticipated.

Taking souls, eating psykers

Taking souls, eating psykers

Inspired by a post in the Heralds of Ruin Facebook group, I wanted to try an Officio Assassinorum kill team, especially with a Culexus assassin. Lacking a model for the assassin I decided to kitbash my own version and found myself drawn into the Mechanicus part of my bitz collection.

So the choice was an easy one – it had to be a tech-assassin, suitable to be used as a Culexus for HoR & regular 40k as well as making an appearance as a Malagra Magos Prime in 30k or even some other flavour of ‘nasty’ in our Inq28 games. 😀

Mixing Dark Eldar and Cult Mechanicus parts I tried to re-create a classic villain pose (milking the giant cow) for the model which worked really well along with the Talos’ gigantic hands. I most certainly spent more time dry-fitting the various parts including several that weren’t used in the end than with building the actual model.^^

In the end the Talos weapon worked really well with the chain ring to resemble an artificial version of the official assassin’s animus speculum. Also I found a use for at least one the ten built electro priests I got through a trade which just gathered dust ever since. Additionally I had an excuse to use my tube tools again to fill the robes with cables after I had to cut the damaged feet off.

Overall I’m pretty pleased with the finished model and at least could turn my sleepless night (thank you, noisy neighbours…) into something productive. 🙂

By the Inquisiton’s decree!

By the Inquisiton’s decree!

Apart from my main projects, the Mechanicum and Mordheim (and the Renegades now…^^), some new stuff from the Inq28 front has dwelt on my desk without the chance to show off – until now. 🙂

So I proudly present Karolus, sanctioned psyker in the name of the Holy Inquisition, who purges the heretics with his mind or just clubs them with his force stave.

Next in line is a member of the ‘Children of the Emperor’ – a mutant cult worshipping the God-Emperor of Mankind in all his holyness and fighting the Ordo Hereticus, which wants to exterminate the mutant pest.
With his trusted bolt thrower, his defeated enemies are later burned not at the stake, but through the stake.

And finally the true scale Deathwatch Blackshield – formerly known as Iron Father Uskaron Varad. Once the disciple of the Moirae sect was transferred from the Red Talons to the Deathwatch and fulfilled his duty for the Ordo Xenos. Before his time in the Deathwatch ended, it came to the Moirae schism and whereas Iron Hands and Brazen Claws let their dissidents go in peace and form the Sons of Medusa, the Red Talons killed every single sectarian. Having no chapter to return to, Varad broke with the Red Talons and became a Blackshield.

Baraq’el finished

Baraq’el finished

My first fully painted model in a long time, the Inquisitor’s nephilim-cherub is finally done or at least done enough to look good on the gaming table despite some mistakes.

For the remaining warband I’m aiming for green and grey and metal as main colours, which still has to prove as a solid colour scheme.

Sidereus Poena – Banishing the Warp 101

Sidereus Poena – Banishing the Warp 101

Despite my first idea for Inq28 warband being a radical Hybris Inquisitrix, the Ordo Malleus finally got the nod over the Ordo Xenos. In this case I went with a puritanical faction, which tries to defend the God-Emperor’s ongoing plan and thus the status quo.

The Amalathians believe that the Emperor has a grand plan and that it is unfolding as it should. They are therefore concerned with maintaining the status quo and react vehemently against change. They are less concerned about the threat of mutation, witchery and the like, and more active in ensuring there is harmony within the vast Imperial organizations, that any rivalries and discord are dealt with and kept to a minimum.

It is the code of the Amalathian that strength is achieved through unity, and politicking and change will serve only to destabilize the Imperium. Noted amongst the many allies of the Amalathian are the Adeptus Arbites and local security forces. The mandate of such organizations being the upholding of imperial law and order thus maintaining the status quo and, in the eyes of the Amalathian, the strength inherent in the Imperium and the Emperor’s design for it.

Amalathian Inquisitors make a point of cooperating with local Imperial authorities, although their official remit is unrestricted. Where other Inquisitors demand, Amalathians politely “request”, and do their best to keep their allies informed.

A distraction from the past – Inq28

A distraction from the past – Inq28

It seems like my hobby cravings aren’t satisfied with several Mordheim projects, the Dark Mechanicum and my BikeStar.

Recently a friend of mine came over so that I could build him a suitable servo-arm for his Iron Priest on thunderwolf and while I was working, he discovered some parts for a thorian inquisitor which I gathered a long time ago. We began to talk about Inquisitor and how we both were interested in the game while it was still new, but both never had the chance to play it back then due to a lack of other players.

Some time, talks, image searches on Google and Inq28 blogs later, we gave in to the black hole which is called “side projects”…

In the meantime I have produced a small copy of Devotee Malicant, a Desperado with short-barreled multi-laser (which I still have to dechaotify) and a lovely little arco-flagellant for my inquisitor’s retinue.
