I think people would either just leave them with very basic greys and metals or maybe go to town on them with the inquisitor's own heraldry.
I'm starting to lean this way too. I think that if I paint it to match the back-pack then it will tie it together without distracting from the main focal point of the model.

With an inquisitor's retinue I think the really important thing is the visual composition. How the squad looks all together as a group. You may want to give them some unifying themes, or you may not, but it's worth spending a minute thinking about that rather than treating each guy as an individual.
This, I foresee, will be a problem. I was planning on painting the Inquisitor Lord in Sky/Earth NMM (while bugging Moo after every brush stroke to see if I got it right) But with no NMM in the retinue this may end up looking very odd when put together. Not sure what I am going to do here either.

The servitor is looking good but I do have a criticism this time. I do not like the red boots. At all. Combined with the blue suit and the checkers it makes the model look like it is wearing clown boots. Well painted clown boots but nonetheless...

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

"Do you want some fries with that plasma cannon?"

Lol, Now I have no choice but to change the colour or else I will forever picture Ronald McDonald each time I play him.

Default Finished Servitor

Here is the finished servitor. I took Moo's and Someguy's advice on the colour for the plasma cannon as well as Wraith's suggestion to keep it 'weathered'. (Not to mention fixing the whole 'Ronald McDonald' problem) I have 2 more servitors to go and then the retinue will be complete.





Hope you like him. Of course, C&C welcomed.

New pics.

Wraith tried editing my pics for me using adobe so I thought that I would post them to see if you can better see the details of the finished model verses the last post??





As I said..., compare with the previous post. I would appreciate some feedback on the photo's especially.

Thanks

Awesome work dude, the greenshading on the metals bring a certain dirty feel to the model, i think if you used a light brown shade ontop of that it may give you a more "oily" feel about the model. I agree totally with Djinn, it does look less "clown like" but i think one main reason for that look in the wips was that you had such a range of contrasting colours which don't quite compliment each other. But still a nice job, keep up the good work dude.

looks pretty good man, I do think the servitor could use a better highlight on the blue. Maybe it's just the super close up of him, but looks like you've got a shade and a midtone, but no highlights on the blue. Nice patina effect on the metal! Looks great man!
