Default M's Inq28 - Inquisitorial forces

Hi guys, I'm new to this forum.
I have been working on some servitors for an inquisitorial 40k force and for Inq28. Mainly as an experiment in using a tentacle/tube maker and weathering with oils. I've tried to emulate some of the techniques seen in John Blanche's models, as I find he paints in a more realistic way. I wanted to make a really grimy model, something that looks as though its been in the battlefield or a factory working in dirty conditions for years.

I didn't want to bombard you all with photos but if you want to see more: http://inq40k.blogspot.co.uk/

Hope you enjoy. Comments and criticism welcome.

Welcome to the forum mate, talk about entering with a splash! I think you've done quite well with the "realist" painting approach. Look forward to seeing what you share with us next!

Welcome to the boards. Very nice servitor. Are you playing an Inquisitorial force for 40k, or are you playing Inquisitor? Love that game.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys, I really appreciate it!
@Knorne's Fist - I've never played inquisitor before but I really want to get into it. I'm planning an imperial guard force with inquisition allies, so I'll be able to do both

I've got a few work in progress photo's of the servitor.

And one when it was a bit cleaner!

I have finished making my second servitor. Unlike the first this is designed to have an active role on the battlefield. I imagine it flying around repairing vehicles with it's two long arms. One arm tipped with a strong clamp to hold the material and the second with a welding tool to fix the damaged metal. On its back there are fuel canisters for the machine to function, connect by large tubing. The size of which dwarf the small legs of the servitor which are bound behind it to protect them from dangling limply and getting in the way.

I have also finished a minitutorial on the first servitor: http://inq40k.blogspot.co.uk/2014/08...-tutorial.html

More Blanchitsu is always welcome!

There's no need to fear bombarding us with too many photos, I think, but if your real goal is to get us salivating and to drive traffic to your blog--well, you've got one clickthrough from me, certainly.

@Mossy Toes - haha, let the bombarding begin! @93rdSaphraDarkGuard - thank you

Sorry for the delay guys, I was caught up in the start of term frenzy at university. Everything is sorted now and I have finally found some time to set aside to relax and model.
I bought a set of dark eldar wyches, an empire merchant scribe (I think from Mordheim) from ebay.
I have great plans!
I am going to convert him into an advisor for my inquisitor: the "keeper of secrets". His book and scrolls filled with the most revealing knowledge. His face will be hid behind a mask, emotionless, giving nothing away. He will also field as an Officer of the fleet in my imperial guard army.
Sorry for the potato pics I only have my phone camera at uni.

I plan on using the head from the wych on the right of the box.

This is the model I will be using as the base

The Keeper of Secrets

This is my idea. I plan to remove the merchants head and will use it later as is full of character. I am going to replace it with the head of the wych. Add a scarf around the neck in green stuff. Add tubing from either side of the head, and then make a respirator on the model's back out of the venting from a space marine backpack. I am unsure if I should add a holstered gun or auspex at his waist.
I plan to paint his visor gloss black, the neck scarf dark red and his tunic an emerald blue with light dust weathering around the base.

I should smack you with something for even thinking that in the first place.

Next welcome to the forums these are some awesome models so please post way more photos here as well as your blog.

Next how did you make the green stuff ribbed tubes? You may want to make a tutorial on making green stuff tubes and put it in the tutorial section.
