INQ28 : Imperial Devout

This little chap was a really quick build. He's based on an old metal Empire Flagellant that I've had laying around for ages. I had no idea what to do with him and so he seemed destined for the bin. 

Coupled with the Scavvy Captain I've had laying around and the two just seemed to suit each other. I hacked the arm from the Scavvy captain and it just seemed to fit.

With the addition of a few Grey-knight devotional objects, seals and relics and such like, he looks ready for some pitiful 40K pilgrimage.

Dark Vengeance Hellbrute

So I just finished the Hellbrute that came with my Dark Vengeance Chaos marines set. 

Not a lot to say about this model other than that in keeping with all the Dark Vengeance models, I'm loving the detail on this one. It's painted in a Nurgle scheme of mostly washes and weathering. I tried to incorporate some of the turquoise wash that I was using for the Chosen.

Dark Vengeance Chosen

So I managed to get hold of a group of Dark Vengeance Chosen models. I've never been inspired by GW's Chaos Marine output before. These however are in a league of their own. The level of detail is quite stunning.

In terms of a paint job I wanted them to be non-aligned Chosen, simply evil rather than embodying one of the four Powers. I was inspired primarily by an old Codfish Paring post:

I loved the way they manage to paint their model as though they have been freshly spewed from the Warp; all magic and brimstone and evil.

So I thought I'd have a go at something similar.

These are my offerings.

In terms of method these guy are all about expressionistic painting. I started with a white undercoat, followed by a heavy Nuln oil wash. Extra washes of dark red and turquoise were then added before the whole thing was covered in a layer of Gryphonne Sepia. I picked out the gold edging although I haven't been too careful about detail. These models are so covered in little gribblies and spare weapons etc that it would take weeks to do them justice. I was looking for a much quicker effect.

ISOG Gone Native

So I'm loving Victoria Miniatures at the moment. Their range just keeps getting better and better, and their modularity (is that even a word?) allows for some wonderful combinations.

With that in mind I thought I'd revisit the idea of the I-SOG (Inquisitorial Studies and Observations Group) and take them one step further.

I guess me rewatching Apocalypse Now Redux the other day must have permeated my ideas so these chaps are ISOG who have gone native, or turned to Chaos.

Who knows, perhaps their leader is called Kurtz. Perhaps they should be terminated with extreme prejudice.

So as I mentioned, these guys are made from Victoria Miniatures legs, torsos and arms, with the addition of Pig IroN Feral heads and a few GW gribblies, such as the odd weapon arm and pouch etc.

Tank Skirts

Long time, no post! So what have I been up to lately?

I've been putting together a pair of tank skirts. These would quite easily go with the other tank accessories I've made in the past. They're a work in progress and so need a bit of finishing up, but you can see the eventual style of them.

I'm also aiming to do a main body piece and a selection of turrets to go with them in order to end up with a modular tank system.

For now though, we start with these.

More actual miniatures to follow soon. Promise.
