Well, my word bearers are on halt again.....I just don't have the time to
paint whole squads right now. Especially if the army has two 12 men
squads.

So instead I figured I would spend some time on a few other minis on
which I can dabbled whenever I do end up having some spare time.
First up is a diorama I've been saying I would do for as long as I had the
mini for Inquisitor Gideon Lorr.

Since he has 3 veteran guardsman I figured I'd best start working on
these, so here are the wips of the first 2. First up an Elysian-style veteran,
build from catachan bits and the head of a sentinel driver.



And secondly a vostroyan veteran made from the very cool vostroyan
sniper that can out around the Medusa V campaign. I couldn't resist buying
this model, but it has been sitting idle on a shelf ever since. But no longer,
a bit of slice 'n dice and 1 wip veteran coming up. The cloack still needs
quite a bit of work, but at least it is starting to look smooth right now. Still
find it very strange that a citycamo sniper would have a camocloack that
also has leaves on it :wink:




I'm working on the third veteran as well as ideas for the scenic base, looks
like a lott of work but if all turns out well it should end up great.

Not much choice on the shotguns, they're going to join Gideon Lorr the
special edition Inquisitor. His rules state that he has 3 guard veterans
wearing carapace armour and armer with frags, kraks and a shotgun.

These models are just for fun, but something tells me that I'll be revisiting
the Inquisition somewhere in the future. They are expensive, but they
have a lott of great models. Quite a lott of fun on the conversion side as
well.

Here's a new picture of the last veteran, still very wip and still need
quite a bit of work, but I'm very pleased with how he's turning out.
The 'mutant guardsman' is also very WIP, but this is the general idea/post
I'm going for with this guy and his position in the diorama;



And comments, suggestion or ideas for other stuff are very welcome!

Very nice. I love the first guy, very drop troopy. I think you should do a little bit of work on your =I= though, otherwise he may look out of place a little bit, his henchmen might upstage him :D

Yes, he's a good old fashioned witch hunter 8)

I might eventually get around to converting some inquisitorial
stormtroopers and using him as a small allied force.

Well time for a little update, this diorama thingy is taking way more time
and resources than I had anticipated. But is a lott of fun and I'm learning
quite a few modelling tricks.

The work on the diorama is starting to come together and I hope to get
all the building on it done by the end of the week. I then have the whole
weekend (hopefully) to work out what I want to do with the 2 still missing
mutants/heretics.

Here's a quite pic, comments/crits are as always welcome :wink:

Love the ramp man, nice use of the cities of death stuff.

Are you going to fill the gutter/sewer thing?

I'm going to have a little experiment on some spare stuff with some off
that resin water effect stuff used by train fanatics. I'll have to see how it
turns out, but I'll probably add some kind of texture to it.

Needed a bit of a change and I came across this guy, great fun.


But back to the diorama :D I'm nearly done with the detailing on the diorama base. Still needs quite a bit of work, but it is really coming togetherl
