So I've been bitten by the Inquisimunda bug. Over the past couple of years, all my hobbying has been driven by rules changes, aided and abetted by the fact that I view the imagery of a full army on a macro scale - I'm not one of these people that can view each Marine as a character, for example. To me they're just playing pieces. After all, the precise angle of a chainsword doesn't really matter when the wielder is one of a squad of ten.
However! I do enjoy modelling for modellings sake, which a grand project such as the Nine Legions just doesn't really allow for, but Inquisimunda is perfect for. It also lets me prod some corners of the fluff that nine different armies of Traitor Legionnaires doesn't, namely the Minor Ordos of the Inquistion. I currently have various ideas brewing for the following Minor Ordos:
I'm pretty sure I'll end up coming up with bits for a bunch of the others, bit they're the ones currently in my head.
The other half of this plog is gonna be a little more eclectic. Im currently running a Black Crusade game set on a space hulk, which is really cool but the lack of models is beginning to get to me. So, I've decided to make some. Things my players have encountered that need models include:
- The Inquistorial forces of the His Will Enacted, the ship they originally escaped from
- A Deathwatch ship that's being harvested by the orks of Waaagh! Buzzgob
- A Dauntless class light cruiser that has ended up oriented like a hive spire, and is home to a thriving civilization of chaos worshippers, ruled over by someone known only as 'The King'.
In other words, plenty to be getting on with. The initial model is an as yet unnamed member of my Ordo Redactus retinue:
Thus far, he's just a heavy flamer Chaos Cultist with a headswap from a Genestealer Cultist. I'm planning on giving him either a hood or a bandana to help tidy up the neck a bit, but my sculpting tools are in storage for the next few weeks until I move into my new flat. I'm also considering some chainmail or something on his upper arms, just to give him a bit more protection than the cultist he's been made from.
