I have been quite busy recently with work and am looking forward to a small break to work on a new army I started assembling over the holidays. Warlord games has a huge range of 28mm historical armies and in their Pike and Shotte line, there is an Imperial army box with a good number of 3-musketeer style soldiers that I thought would make great Imperial forces from a slightly backwards world.
My plan is to use them as allies to my Inquisitor warband, and their old style clothing and gear fits nicely with the GW style of Imperial life.
Armed with Las-lock rifles, they are of similar power to standard model lasguns, but instead of being powered by a rechargeable battery pack, they use larger single shot batteries that can be recharged at a charging station after each use. Several soldiers also use flamer weapons converted to fit on their arms making this force useful against xenos and lightly armored troops. (Gunline troops protected with plenty of flamers to provide brutal overwatch from charging assault oriented aliens).
Two Hellhounds provide some needed fast moving, tank shock capable of reaching backfield objectives and removing more powerful enemy threats with their hellfire weapon systems.
Allied to Inquisitor Valeria Mane Retento, these soldiers wear the Inquisitorial seal on their shoulderpads and serve alongside the Inquisitors personal bodyguard of Repentia from the Sisters of Battle, the Inquisitorial psykers sent to bolster her against Xenos based psionic attacks and her Bullgryn slabshield wall that provides a mobile wall of protection.
Meet the Inquisitorial warriors assigned to Inquisitor Valeria Mane
Greenstuff press mould shoulderpads made from the arms from Inquisitor Karazmakov model. Hope I spelled his name right...
Backpacks and goggles added to several models to bring them into a more modern age.
A single gas mask came on one of the goggle sprues. I wish I could find a bunch more of these!
Command squad ready to convert to Imperial style weapons. Chainswords for everyone and maybe a plasma pistol I have lying around for the guy who is not holding any weapons yet.
I really like the old style hats and poofy clothes on these models and I feel they fit great with the artwork found in the Codex: Inquisition. Basing these guys should be interesting as I will want to cover up the existing smaller bases they have. Maybe some white glue and a simple layer of sand will work.
