Hello everyone,

here's where I'll be posting my completd INQ28 models and work in progress stuff. I've been posting on Dakka, the Conclave and on my own blog for a while now, and now Commissar Molotov told me that the Ammobunker is a great forum for INQ28 enthusiasts, so I thought I might try posting my Inquisitor related stuff here as well.

Like I said in my introduction thread, I was really spurred into action when I discovered several websites advertising playing Inquisitor at the 28mm scale. Suddenly, a whole new universe opened up: I could build characters for Inquisitor in a scale I was already comfortable with, using all the great bits from the Warhammer Fantasy and 40k lines. Or from anywhere I liked. I was immediately hooked!

At the same time, I discovered the work of a number of truly spectacularly talented people who had built their own Inquisior models at 28mm: Commissar Molotov, migsula, PDH and JRN, to name just a few extraordinary artists. When I saw those models, I was sure that I absolutely HAD to build my own Inquisitor retinues. Here's where I was after a couple of months:



You may have seen this image already on Molotov's blog, Inq28. This is the motley crew of misfits accompanying the radical Inquisitor Lazarus Antrecht. In the future, I will be showcasing each of my Inquisitor models in more detail, describing the conversion work as well as the general background for the character. We’ll start off with the big man, the Inquisitor himself:



Inquisitor Lazarus Antrecht, Ordo Malleus

There is no simple truth when it comes to Inquisitor Lazarus Antrecht of the Ordo Malleus: Some say he is a loyal servant of the Throne. Some call him a dangerous radical. Others maintain that he has turned, fallen away from the light of the Emperor and come to worship the ruinous powers.

Many have tried to ascertain which school of thought within the holy Inquisition Lazarus Antrecht follows. It seems reasonably certain that he was once an Amalathian, but his ideals seem to have changed somewhere along the way. There are those who now call him an Istvaanian, perhaps even with Xanthite leanings, while more jaded members of the Inquisition argue that Antrecht is the sole follower of the philosphy of Antrechtism, a true army of one. The truth is that Lazarus Antrecht would probably laugh at all of those attempts at classification: It is for him alone and for the God Emperor of Mankind to know where his true allegiance lies.

The fact that Antrecht shows only disdain for those who question his loyalty to the Emperor and the secrecy with which he surrounds himself have convinced more puritan elements within the Ordos that he is a dangerous heretic who must be taken down for the good of the Imperium, and many have tried, among them his former friend Inquisitor Gotthardt of the Ordo Hereticus. So far, he has managed to elude his pursuers, but he has been forced ever deeper into the shadows, manipulating and plotting where other Inquisitors would conduct their work more openly. This suits him fine, however, for Lazarus Antrecht is a true puppetmaster, highly intelligent and with piercing insight into the inner workings of the Imperium. By sheer necessity, Antrecht has become well aquainted with the shadows, and it is no wonder that his retinue comprises many colourful indivduals from the somewhat …darker corners of the galaxy.

Accordingly, there are few means that the Inquisitor would refrain from using. He is convinced that every tool has its use. And in Lazarus Antrecht's world, almost everything can become a tool at the right time.

Whatever it is that the Inquisitor truly seeks, one thing is clear: Those who find themselves between him and his goals have to face a formidable and resourceful opponent.




The model for Inquisitor Antrecht was very much inspired by Phil Kelly's Inquisitor Lichtenstein (who in turn is a conversion of the original Eisenhorn model). I really wanted to create a model that, while not clad in ornate Power armour, would convey a sense of confidence and experience. I have always loved Phil Kelly's retine for Inquisitor Lichtenstein, so that was the perfect place to go to for inspiration!

Antrecht was built using mainly parts from the Cadian Command Squad. The puny Laspistol was exchanged for a suitably bulky Boltpistol. His secondary sidearm comes from the Kroot kit. And finally, his daemon sword is a standard sword from the Warhammer Fantasy Warriors of Chaos. I wanted something clearly chaotic without going totally overboard, so I think the sword was a nice compromise.



The most important part of the model (and basically of any Inquisitor) was the head: I chose a bare head from the Chaos Terminator Lord box. Not only did it resemble the original Eisenhorn head, but it also had an expression of slightly haughty amusement – very fitting for an Inquisitor who has seen quite a lot in his career and feels he knows something that most of his critics don't. The base was done using a resin piece from the 40k basing set.

I wanted Antrecht to look somewhat distinguished, even regal, but without being to gaudy in the colour department, so I went for luxurious tones that were still slightly subdued. The below average freehand =I= symbol on his shoulder admittedly was a moment of weakness – I might replace it with a decal somewhere along the way.





So, that's my rundown on Inquisitor in general and my own Inquisitor Antrecht in particular. Let me know what you think!

Thanks Molotov! I hope I can make a contribution

In other news, here's the next member of Antrecht's warband and the first model I ever built for Inquisitor: Magos Explorator Hiram Zeiss.



Magos Explorator Hiram Zeiss

Magos Hiram Zeiss has always been a treasure hunter of sorts, but in his case, the treasure in question is knowledge. Educated on Mars, Magos Zeiss quickly displayed a thirst for knowledge that even his senior Mechanicus priests found slightly disquieting. Additionally, all attempts to keep his questing mind contained within the confines of a Mechanicus Forgeworld proved futile. Magos Zeiss was thus elevated to the rank of Magos Explorator and inducted into one of the Explorator fleets constantly scouring the galaxy for lost knowledge from the Dark Age of Technology. It was during this quest that Zeiss and his team came under attack from a Xeno-cult on the world of Varunth Minoris, and the Explorator party was nearly wiped out. It was only through the intervention of Inquisitor Antrecht that Magos Zeiss survived. He has been a member of the Inquisitor's entourage ever since.

It would, however, be very naive to think that his association with Antrecht is based on some kind of gratitude: Aloof and emotionless beyond measure, Magos Zeiss has simply realised that the Inquisitor's highly unconventional modus operandi is very likely to lead him to all kinds of forgotten places and, by extension, to many caches of forgotten knowledge as well.

In his pursuit of knowledge, Hiram Zeiss has gone further than most members of the Mechanicus, and it is his relentless quest for things some would say were best left forgotten that have alienated him from his fellow Magi. At best, the techpriests of Mars regard him as a wayward child. But there are also those who think that Magos Zeiss is walking a very dangerous road and that his quest had best be ended before he ever reaches the end of it…



Let me start off by saying that I think that there is a severe shortage of Mechanicus models. Sure, you've got the Enginseer and a FW Magos, but apart from that, the Mechanicus doesn't get much love from GW, which, in my opinion, is pretty hard to justify: Those guys are just oozing the gothic madness that is Warhammer 40k. So it was clear to me that one of my Inquisitor models would have to be a Magos. Once again, I was drawn to Phil Kelly's models for inspiration. It doesn't take a degree in rocket science to see that I was quite heavily inspired by his Magos Demitri model when I built Hiram Zeiss.

The base for the model were a WFB Empire flagellant body, head and right arm. I think that the tattered robes are a very good fit for an obsessed Magos on the run. I added a respirator and bionic arm from the Cadian Command sprue and cobbled together some kind of servo harness from a couple of bits. This piece of equipment helps him on his quest for knowledge by providing all the tools you might need in dark and abandoned places, i.e. a chainblade and some kind of plasma cutter. The upside is that the tools can also be used to tear through any competition if need be

Looking back on it now, it might have been better to go for some believable Mechadendrites instead of the clunky backpack, but oh well…



All that was left were some finishing touches: The head of the chainaxe (a nod to Phil Kelly's Magos Dimitry) came from the Khorne Berzerkers and the original (bare) feet of the model were replaced with feet I cut off an old Space Crusade android. This was supposed to show that Hiram is a bit more augmented under the hood than you might initally suspect.

When painting him, going for red robes was a no-brainer. I did however try to make them look threadbare and stained. For his skin, I went for a bloodless, dead look. The rest were various shades of metal and rust. I did also try to add a (fairly primitive) lighting effect to his plasma cutter.

All in all, I wanted him to be clearly identifiable as a Mechanicus model, but at the same time to look somewhat unkempt and frayed around the edges. Just the right appearance for a rogue Magos who is obsessed with his quest for knowledge…

So there, my second INQ28 model. Hope you enjoyed the ride C&C are always welcome!

Thanks a lot, fireangel! And while we're on the subject of the Mandalorian...




It's really not that hard to guess who this guy is based on. It's also not a very original idea: There's lots of Boba Fett conversions all over the net. I stumbled upon some of them and felt the ambition to build my own version. And so I was inspired to do one of my less serious attempts at character creation for Inquisitor



He's a pretty easy kitbash too: I used legs from the Chaos Marauders, a Cadian torso, some old CSM arms and a helmet from the Khorne Berzerkers with the "bunny ears" clipped off. Then I added a couple of accessories from the Kroot kit. His pistol was spliced together from an old Boltpistol and the shaft of an old WFB Chaos Warrior halberd - yes, really

Since he's more or less a fun project, I didn't really envision him as a character the way I did with the other members of Antrecht's retinue. I just thought that he'd make a cool enough Bounty Hunter. And the original Boba Fett's freelancer attitude fit with Antrecht's outlook quite nicely, so he became a member of this particular family

However, after a bit of thought, a couple of ideas how to insert him into "official" 40k lore presented themselves:



Bounty Hunter "The Mandalorian"

Not much is known about the mysterious figure frequently accompanying Lazarus Antrecht on his more "colourful" outings. He is a Bounty Hunter, that much is clear. A sellsword to be sure. And, without any doubt, a professional. Few have seen him without his trademark suit of battered armour of an unknown provenience. However, those who have managed to catch a glimpse of his features and body maintain that his skin is a milky white, making him look more like a ghost than a man. Whether this strange feature is caused by his habit of always covering his body or is the product of something more sinister seems impossible to ascertain. Some whisper about an army created from the genestock of the Imperium's greatest, a force of Albino warriors surrounded by misfortune and secrecy. And while no one would ever openly confront the Mandalorian with these rumours, there is a name that follows him wherever he goes, a whisper, passing through the shadows: "Afriel"...

Right, I guess that's all there is to him. Let me know what you think

Thanks a lot, Gerner!

I am posting at a silly rate, but that's only because I want to get all my INQ28 threads synchronised, if that makes any sense. So don't expect me to keep up this crazy pace forever

Anyway, now for a more serious character. This time I even have some WIP pictures. Yay!

To me, one of the most interesting archetypes in Inquisitor is that of the Daemonhosts: They really show the extent of what some Inquisitors are prepared to do in their service to the Emperor. And with Lazarus Antrecht being an indiviual of a fairly radical persuasion, it was clear to me that I would need a Daemonhost for his retinue.

Unfortunately, the official GW models at 28mm are, in a word, hideous (and not in a good way) and lack nearly all of the subtle menace exuded by the original Cherubael model -- if anything, they look like amateurish attempts at recapturing what made Cherubael so great. So it stood to reason that I would once again have to resort to my two favourite pasttimes: converting and kitbashing. After a bit of research, I discovered a couple of great options for converting a daemonhost. Two of my favourites were these:

http://i189.photobucket.com/albums/z121 ... tFinal.jpg
http://www.pbase.com/migsula/image/6770 ... iginal.jpg

There was a problem though: Both models used the same head from the WFB Warriors of Chaos, incidentally one of my favourite heads ever. These were so hard to get by that there was no way I would use up one of my stock on a non World Eaters model. And I also really didn't want to use the horrible metal models as a basis for my conversion. What to do?

I jumped in at the deep end and bought a box of Crypt Ghouls. It seemed to me that those were the models with the look most fitting for a Daemonhost: tortured, emaciated and with a slightly feral quality. Plus I would have lots and lots of leftovers for different projects (Twists, Arco Flagellants,...) So, after much bending and cutting and some greenstuffing to boot, here's what I came up with:



As you can probably see, the legs, torso, arms and head all come from the Crypt Ghouls, so that was quite easy. I did however have to do quite a serious bit of work on the pose: Crypt Ghouls are all hunchbacked and bent forward, while I wanted my Daemonhost to be floating and looking like its poor body was at full stretch. I achieved this by changing the way the torso connects to the legs and by greenstuffing in a new stomach. I hid the rough spots of the conversion behind some kind of religious icon – no idea where this came from. I also repositioned the arms so that the Daemonhost looked like it was reaching for something only visible to itself. Again, the seams of the conversion work were camouflaged, this time with a purity seal.

I also wanted to have the Daemonhost clearly floating, so I had to find something to keep it in the air. In the end, I used a part of a chain from the Chaos vehicle sprue. It was stable enough to hold the model in the air, and the skull attached to its end offered a solid point of contact with the base. Further chains were added to show how the Daemonhost is bound and "weighed down". I kept the strange, bony quills emerhing from the model's back since they fitted the concept of daemonic possession in my opinion. I also added a tongue from a Bloodletter of Khorne to enhance the appearance. The last part of the conversion was the base: I used some cork and a couple of strange spikes from the Chaos Terminator Lord sprue.



When it came to painting the model, I went for a very unhealthy skin tone achieved by generously washing a basecoat of GW Dheneb Stone with GW Leviathan Purple. This led to an almost pink colour (maybe even too much so, in hindsight), but the colour added to the twisted, inhuman feeling of the model, so I guess that it's all cool in the end.



The rest was all detailing. I highlighted the scars and welts all over the model and painted all the details. The bone quills and tongue were painted purple to show how the daemon is slowly emerging from within the host body, twisting and transforming it in the process. The spikes on the base were painted to look like some kind of daemonic growth erupting from the floor as the Daemonhost floats by.





While there is a couple of rough spots on the model, I still far prefer it to the official GW ones. So with the modeling and painting out of the way, all that remained was to cook up some background for the character...



Daemonhost Zalambur

Inquisitor Antrecht still thought about Rikkert Nozick from time to time, and it was always a bittersweet memory. When Antrecht had come to Barsavia Hive to investigate the actions of the notorious Heretek Amnon Helix, Rikkert had been there from the start, trying to be helpful and ingratiate himself with the Inquisitor. Still, he had been a competent guide and managed to open quite a few doors in the hive, so Antrecht had indulged him.

Then the young man had asked to be inducted into the Inquisitor's retinue, and while Antrecht had laughed at the audacity of the idea, he had still seriously considered it. He hated to let a potential asset go to waste, after all. But he had felt something in the young man that he did not like, some kind of inner flaw or deficiency, hidden by his eagerness to please. And while Antrecht could not quite put his finger on what it was that was bothering him, he had felt that there was a thirst within Rikkert Nozick that could never be quenched by service to the God Emperor alone. So Antrecht had turned him down and set off into the underhive on his own.

But fate is a harsh mistress, or so they say, and so when Antrecht was dangling above a yawning chasm, bloodied and broken after his confrontation with the heretic Helix, just barely hanging on with his last ounce of strength, it was Rikkert Nozick who had slipped from the shadows and offered to save the Inquisitor. He did however have one condition: Antrecht's life would be saved, but Rikkert would join him as a member of his retinue when he left the planet.

Antrecht had little choice in the matter if he wanted to live, so he gave his word. He limped from the underhive, hurt but alive, leaning on his new "apprentice", for that was how the young man had come to see himself.

The Inquisitor had other plans, however, for he simply could not trust a man who had used a moment of weakness to haggle for privileges. But then, a promise had been made, and Lazarus Antrecht knew a lot about the importance of promises.

Fortunately, fate intervened again: An interesting opportunity presented itself soon afterwards and so, when Inquisitor Antrecht left the planet, young Nozick joined him as a permanent member of his retinue. His wish had been fulfilled.

All this Antrecht remembered. And as he cast a sideways glance at the pale creature floating along next to him, he could not help but think that there was still much of the young man he had encountered in Barsavia Hive in its sharp features. The Daemonhost noticed Antrecht's attention and bared its iron teeth in a rictus grin. Yes, even now, the resemblance was uncanny.

Inquisitor Antrecht still thought about Rikkert Nozick from time to time. And it was always a bittersweet memory.
And a reminder to always be careful what you wish for.


So, what do you think?

Absolutely stunning warband. I think the daemonhost is my favourite though (without the arm for a nose).

Great stuff, though will these pics keep coming?

You know, the Warp is a fickle thing. There have been stranger things than arms growing from noses

Seriously though, thanks for the kind words! And yes, I am confident that there'll be quite a lot more updates about my INQ28 models. Even when Antrecht's retinue is done, I suspect I may have two or three more retinues in me

You see, building Inquisitor models is a very nice change of pace from working on my "regular" 40k army, so it's something I plan on doing for quite a while. And with all the talented artists working on INQ28 models, I probably won't run out of inspiration

Alright, everyone, with this post I have managed to bring this thread up to speed with my other INQ28 threads. The bad news is that the posts will be coming at a slower pace from now on. The good news is that you have a new model to look at. Here goes:

The idea of adding some kind of assassin to Inquisitor Antrecht's retinue had been banging around in the back of my head for quite some time. However, I wasn't really sure how to go about it: Perhaps add a Death Cult Assassin? But I didn't really have an interesting modeling idea for one of those (yet). At the same time, I have always liked the different Imperial Assassin models released by GW, but I really wanted to build an Assassin from plastic rather than use a "readymade" metal figure.

Everything started to make sense when two different influences intersected. The first of those was me reading through the old "Heavenfall" Adventurescape released as part of the "Inquisitor Conspiracies" series. I came across a character called "The Sentine", a rogue Vindicare Assassin turned serial killer, ostensibly driven mad by something so horrible it also turned him deaf. What a cool concept! The second thing that influenced me was when Ron Saikowski (of FTW fame) posted his fantastic plastic Eversor conversion. Take a look:

http://fromthewarp.blogspot.de/2011/09/ ... n-wip.html

And that pretty much decided it: I wanted an Assassin that was pretty recognisable as one of the Imperial Assassin types, but not quite. After all, a true Eversor Assassin wouldn't really make a compelling character, right?

Anyway, I gathered my bits and reveled in the modeling challenge. Here's what I ended up with:



Where Ron used an Eldar guardian as a base for his conversion, I was lucky enough to get my hands on a leftover Dark Eldar torso and legs courtesy of my ever helpful cousin Andy: The model was originally a Wych crew member from the Dark Eldar Venom kit, which explains the somewhat athletic pose -- just what I wanted for my Assassin!





From there on out, it was really all about the bits. Like I said, I wanted the model to look fairly similar to an Eversor Assassin. I added a skull from some skeleton kit or other as his skull mask. His sword was originally a Falchion from the Grey Knights kit. I also added a couple of smaller bits and bobs to make him look less Xenos and more Imperial. The severed head was a shout out to Ron's model as well as to one of the older Eversor models from GW. What I really like about the model though is the pose: It's really full of dynamism which I think is a rather nice fit for a killing machine on the prowl...







For the paintjob, I chose a rather muted palette, with a couple of red accents as the only standout colour. I really wanted to tie him together with the rest of Antrecht's merry little freakshow, and I guess I succeeded.



His face is the only part of him I'm not super-happy with: I would have loved to add a little more contrast, but the detailing on the skull was so soft that I didn't dare use too many coats of paint, lest the details, especially the teeth, be totally obscured.





Like with all my INQ28 models, I wrote some background for him. I asked myself how Antrecht would come to employ an assassin. And how an assassin in turn would come to work for Antrecht...

I really stepped out of my comfort zone writing this, and I am not quite sure if my English is up to the task. I'll let you be the judges of that. Here goes:



Officio Assassinorum Operative Sigma

Regaining consciousness. A room. Dimly lit. Walls, floor and ceiling made from heavily stained metal. The only source of light directly above. Blinding.

Bodily functions normal. No apparent damage. First attempt at movement proves futile. Arms and legs restrained. Head also restrained. Shackles show no signs of yielding.

"It seems our guest is awake."

A voice. Male. Mocking undertone. Humanoid individual (owner of voice?) steps into field of vision. Human male. About 6 foot tall. Dressed in plain clothes. Appears to be in his early sixties. However, subtle signs of rejuvenat treatments. Also hints of augmentic implants on the back of the head. Facial features reveal individual to be Inquisitor Lazarus Antrecht, Ordo Malleus. Primary target.

"Careful, Antrecht!"

Another voice, originating from previously unnoticed individual in the shadows. Voice heavily garbled by use of vocal synthesizer and thus not clearly identifiable as male or female .

"The shackles should restrain it yet a while longer, and the drugs are still working. But considering its accelerated metabolism, I'd prefer it if you had your conversation while we are still safe."

Shape and posture of individual suggest extensive bionic augmentation. Red cloak suggests affiliation with Mechanicus cult. Subject identified with a probability of 76.6% as Magos Explorator Hiram Zeiss, reported M.I.A during mission on Varunth Minoris. Secondary target. Estimated distance to primary target: two steps. Estimated time of battle until termination of vital functions: three seconds. From there, distance to secondary target: one step. Estimated time until termination of vital functions: four seconds.

"I know what you are thinking"

The primary target.

"Let me assure you, your estimations are, shall we say, a little optimistic. But you are free to try, of course."

Another attempt at escape. Restrains prove unyielding again. No possible way of reaching primary target at this time. Conserve strength. Try again later.

"Well, there really is no talking to you, is there?" Aside to secondary target: "Hiram, would you be so kind? I suppose I should enjoy this conversation more it if our guest were somewhat less…single minded."

Secondary target seems to be manipulating a console. Pressing buttons. Result unkn…

…To begin with, pain. Lances of white hot lightning, piercing to the core.

"What you are feeling right now is the removal of certain…substances from your bloodstream. Since your organism has been attuned to these substances for Throne knows how long, you may find the resulting sensations to be somewhat disagreeable. Naturally, our good Magos Zeiss assures me that he has taken ample preparations to steel you against the more …debilitating physical effects of your deprivation."

And then, beyond the pain, something far worse. Something like an echo in the back of the head…

"There are some things, however, that we cannot spare you." A pause. "It appears that you are now suffering from the early symptoms of a most vicious disease. We call it 'sense of self'."

Darkness.

Awake again. Antrecht is in the room. Straining to understand his words. There is so much pain. And things far worse. Nooks and crannies where there used to be only the surface of a lake, undisturbed and pristine. But no longer.


"Let me explain to you how this matter will be resolved. I shall pose you a question. I shall give you a gift. I shall make you an offer. And then, everything else.

But first, the question." Antrecht's face is now entirely without humour. "The question is: Why?"

What does he mean? What does he want? It is growing more and more difficult to hold his gaze. If he would only say something. But he is just sitting there…

…sitting there looking.

Looking at…

…me

Darkness


Awake again.
"Back to the question at hand." Antrecht again: "Why all of this? Why want me dead?" He comes closer, gazing at me once again, unrelenting. "Not why your masters want me dead, mind you. I know that. Why do you want me dead…Operative Sigma? What do you stand to gain from this?"

What… do I

I…?

Darkness


"I promised you a gift, Operative Sigma, and you shall have it." A smile. "I shall give you the most valuable thing in this galaxy. I shall give you a choice."

The sound of the shackles springing open is very loud.

After a seemingly endless moment, Antrecht smiles:


"Very well then. Shall we talk about the offer I mentioned?"



So, that's about it. Let me know what you think! :thumbsup:
