I'm very impressed by both, your sketching-skills and the ability to transform them to very fluff-associated models. Great work, keep going on

Thank you for the feedback guys, I'm going to start making the keeper tomorrow.
@Flatlinerunner - thank you very much @morfangdakka - haha, don't worry I will. I used a Tube/Tentacle Maker, they make it super easy to make tubes. I'll have a think about making a tutorial. I found one on the internet a while ago though, I'll try and find it.

In the meantime I am about to start reading the Ravenor and Eisenhorn trilogies. Before I start I wanted to imagine the protagonists from what little information I have read. I'm then going to revisit them once I finish reading the novels and see how they compare, and use the sketches to model them. I have done some musings about Inquisitor ravenor as I haven't seen many images of him let alone pictures of conversions. If there are any good conversions would someone mind posting a link please?

Comments are always be appreciated

I also picked up this as well!

I wrote some more about it here: http://inq40k.blogspot.co.uk/2014/09...newcastle.html

Maybe go for a pistol of some sort on this model, it seems rather appropriate for him to somewhat be able to defend the secrets he holds. And personally the auspux might be a little useless if he had some sort of HUD in his visor with a shoulder mounted servo skull maybe?

My uni term has at last finished! It was a lot harder than I expected and so there wasn't really any time for modelling. I did manage to read Eisenhorn's trilogy and I am currently 2/3 of the way through Ravenor's, my imagining of him was well off! So I think I will use that concept for another inquisitor.
Now term has finished I've began work on the newest member on my warband. A kroot guide.

He has suffered many injuries on from his work with the inquisitor, most notable are from an explosion suffered when chasing a heretic who was poisoning an amasec factory.

The inquisitorial team advanced with the kroot on point. Only too late did they realise they had entered a trap. Explosives at the base of the boiling vats detonated and boiling liquid sprayed onto the kroot. The damage was extensive, but thankfully due to medicae technology and the fact he was considered too valuable an asset to lose: extensive skin grafts and transplants were able to repair most of his body. His left eye, forearm and hand however could not be saved. These have been replaced with implants and augments.

The Kroot Guide

I'm really enjoying making this one, I carved his left hand to look like a robotic hand and then used a necron forearm which was also carved to make it less cylindrical to replace the forearm. I added some scar tissue to the neck and drilled out the left eye, which I replaced with plastic tubing.
The silencer on the end of his rifle has not yet been glued as I ran out of super glue, it is resting only on a pin, which is the reason is at an odd angle in a couple of the photos.
He's not finished yet, I think I will add a few more impants along his back and lower legs as well as some further scar tissue on his left shoulder. Cloth either in between his legs or over his left shoulder and also some other trinkets.

The Kroot tracker is pretty much finished now, I've made a few further additions: a small camo cloak that is billowing over his shoulder to create a dynamic pose; ammunition, a pistol and a knife. The knife is made of two different knives from the kroot kit, one with a bone handle and another with a longer blade that I had to cut a pelt away from. I also added some further augments to his knee joints. The only further modifications I plan on making now are an attachment for the camo cloak and a base.

@The gunsliger - thanks, you definitely should, I haven't played a game yet. But I'm really enjoying making the models
Update to the keeper of secret at last!
I've done some work on the head. This is the part that will be most heavily converted, so after this is done there won't be much work left to do on the model.

The helmet is a marvel of design. It was created to hold and compute tremendous amounts of data; a miniature super cogitator. The helmet enables the Keeper to boost his already terrifying knowledge, making him a masterful tactician and saboteur.

Decided to put it together as a gif

Am loving watching your warband develop, well done with the conversions - your sculpting with GS is superb. My only issue is with the Kroot legs, they don't look 'solid' enough to take a long range shot with the rifle. Just a personal thing that though, your work is superb, can't wait to see more.
