Ok, i said to myself i wouldnt post this yet as the competition is still going on over at the blog but i thought to myself no, its a nice model and I enjoyed making it.

So my most recent completed model was Inquisitor Castlegar, sometimes leader of the 1313th.

Firstly apologies for the bad flash picture at the end but thought it worth it to try and show more detail to the model. I quite enjoyed working on this model, as this was the first time i have used the new paints and i must say lahmian medium is my new best friend! The changes themselves were simple enough, with the hand and headswaps, getting the brass etch places proved tricky as it kept dropping off but all said and done it looks great and is a nice solid inquisitor to lead my future armies.

first up here is a picture of the model parts and a parts list:


parts used are:
commander culln body and arms,
new FW Abaddon storm bolter,
GK head,
GK force staff,
GK pads,
brass etch

Overall i am happy with the results and the normal caveat of it looks better in real life applies:







So that is my most recent completed model for the force.
Currently he is entered in the competition on my blog, which was to model and paint a legal character in Terminator armour. details and voting info can be found here:

please feel free to let me know what you thing of the Inquisitor and please vote

so folks after a massive break from the hobby (for which i will forever feel guilty) i am starting to get back on the hobby horse, and have decided to finally clear out some of my unused forgeworld stuff (including some super heavies) to make way for some more massive FW projects to come my way to make me enjoy it a bit more.


I recently had a bit of a hobby mishap where an entire platoons worth of guard which were in the process of being stripped got ruined, somehow they all melted despite me using the normal stuff i use, admittedly they were older plastics so that could have been the cause. that was about a month ago and kind of knocked me wanting to get back going but i think im there now.


I am now looking to restart these guard and potentially revisit my existing models but there is still a question ongoing in my mind. On the shoulders of the models above (i dont know if you can see it) there are brass etch eagles and inquisition =I=s (and variations there of) on the other, in addition to the helmet and chest eagles. i am trying to decide if i should do one of the following three things with them, should i:


start picking them out in the grey/white used on my inquisitor terminator is worth it
leave them green and subdued (and potentially lost)
remove them and have the pads just painted plain green as with the rest of the armour


any thoughts on this progress would be appreciated, hopefully there will be some proper hobby progress soon!

I'd go through and do the white on the icons personally. Do 5 a day every day for a week and it won't be too painful.

Where had those older (now melted) Guardsmen come from?

Either non genuine or he may have painted them with something odd.

thats what im thinking, still gives me a chance to rebuild and get some more extreme environment suits in there as well need to order a new FW commander now but at least that means i can get some decent bionics on him now.
cheers

the models themselves arent too bad, apart from a damaged track on one of the macharius models (which i still have no idea on how im gonna fix as its right at the front) the models are pretty clean and well scrubbed. just a few knocks though that have taken nubbings and a few bits off but they can be stuck back on
