INQUISITOR - The box arrives!


A new, long-term, slow-burn commission has arrived in my bunker. Over the next who-knows-how-many months, I'll be building and painting what appears to be almost the entire range of GW's 2000 release, Inquisitor.

First on the docket are Barbaretta and Quovandius...

Cheers
Dave

  1. Oh wow! There are some really great figures in there. Are you just build/painting, or will you be doing conversions as well?

    1. I'll mostly be building/painting, and there are a few of the special conversion packs that GW created that I'll be using too. I expect there'll be a couple of customer pieces in there too. : )

    2. Back when the game came out, I worked an a GW stockist and a group of staff and regular customers got together to paint one of every figure released in the first wave. There was I great reception to the models. I chose to paint the Redemptionist, Malicant, in a colour scheme that matched my Necromunda Cawdor gang. This was the only time I would ever paint a large-scale digital model, but I had a blast doing it!

    1. Should be fun. Back in the day I did about half a dozen Space Marine conversions (mostly into Chaos Space Marines), as well as a squad of Gaunt's Ghosts (that I sadly lost at a train station one day). Getting back into the bigger figs will be good.

  4. Ah, great stuff, Dave. Really looking forward to seeing what you do on some of those larger surface expanses, especially Scarn, the Navigator and Artemis.

    1. I've just checked back through the box and it seems none of those three are in there. I guess it's not the whole range.

  5. Huh. This certainly came out of the left field ;) Anyway, I am really looking forward to this! Will you be trying to replicate the "official" 'Eavy Metal paintjobs, or did the customer give you free rein when it comes to choosing colour schemes for the various models?

    1. I think I have free reign, so I think I'll be staying pretty close for some of the "feature" characters (Eisenhorn, Tyrus, etc) and will deviate to varying degrees with the others : )

  6. Looking forward to this... I have two dozen of these painted/converted and probably another two dozen in boxes. I had fun painting them. May be the impetus I need to add to my collection!

  7. Looking forward to seeing these painted! I had an Eisenhorn, a Chaos Magus, and a Space Marine converted into a Khorne Berserker back in the day.

    I have a new, unpainted Eisenhorn sitting in a box waiting to be painted some day. Re-bought him a few years ago after I finished reading the Eisenhorn and Ravenor series.
