……………………………………………………………………………………………

 

Greetings fellow Inquisitors! It is only fit and proper for the Lord Inquisitor (read: mod) of this forum to have a proper PLOG and I've been suffering from hobby burnout for so long that my previous "Road to Astronomi-con" PLOG has suffered exterminatus. Well, it's time to "get back in the saddle" and the leaked pict captures of new Adeptus Ministorum stuff (alongside the SoB releases) has done much to help revive some enthusiasm for the hobby in me. As well as painting to completion old models that languished for far too long, I will also be adding new ones as I seek to complete the Witchunter army that I have always deeply regretting not doing during the golden years of Codex: Witchhunters.  Therefore, I am building an army that would have been possible with that Codex, to the best of my ability given new rules (alas I can't make a HTH beast custom inquisitor like the good old days with the sweet warband rules).

 

 

So for the moment you can look here for the "working list" I am operating off of for my purchases, construction, and painting: http://www.bolterand...stusministorum/

 

First on my priority list is Lord Inquisitor Soulis himself in his newest incarnation, trudging into battle atop is very own Throne of Redemption (I will use Inquisitor Karamazov rules to represent him):

 

gallery_66537_9465_999642.jpg

 

I'll post bits of fluff and some Batreps as well as WIP pics as I go. Those who have been with the B&C for a while will know that Lord Inquisitor Soulis has been a central figure in my armies for decades. He first appeared back circa. 2000 in 3rd edition as an inquisitor in terminator armour from the BRB of that time. He met an untimely "demise" at the hands of a Catachan demo pack (back then only Catachans had those) and a failed invulnerable role. According to my fluff he actually survived the blast (barely) and re-emerged years later, bringing the errant Catachans to justice although he is now greatly weakened and although I previously had him wearing power armour that allowed him to walk, I think riding around on this throne is more fitting!

 

Here is the Lord Inquisitor Soulis of recent years before I acquired the Karamazov model:

 

med_gallery_66537_9465_10619.jpg

 

And his warband:

 

med_gallery_66537_9465_302398.jpg

 

The Crusaders have been expanded into a 6-strong unit. I currently hath not a group shot, but here are some individual pics:

 

med_gallery_66537_9465_91559.jpeg med_gallery_66537_9465_343900.jpg

 

med_gallery_66537_9465_11582.jpg med_gallery_66537_9465_44835.jpeg

 

Of course, the core of my force is Inquisitorial Storm Troopers.

 

med_gallery_66537_9465_126395.jpg

 

med_gallery_66537_9465_379855.jpg

 

med_gallery_66537_9465_215858.jpg

 

med_gallery_66537_9465_265529.jpg

 

The above is the deep-striking element of the force. Then there are two more squads who will be tucked inside Taurox Primes, and Soulis' "Honour Guard" who will accompany him on foot.

 

med_gallery_66537_9465_303798.jpg

 

med_gallery_66537_9465_347081.jpg

 

The Troopers are among those who I need to complete. I am thinking that I will have another Kasrkin Squad, and then an old-school "Astronaut" squad (model wise) for the two mechanized units, then make the 8 Scions with  2x flamers for the honour guard (just because Scions are fancy). Or maybe the "astronauts" as honour guard since they're old school. What do my fellow inquisitors think?

 

Last but not least, my lovingly converted =][= Chimera that sadly has no place in my working list:

 

med_gallery_66537_9465_34341.jpg  

 

med_gallery_66537_9465_219586.jpg

 

So, stuff that needs to be bought/built/painted to complete the list at this juncture:

 

Lord Inquisitor Soulis

8 "Astronaut" Storm Troopers

8 Kasrkin

 

 

And then when it is released:

 

2 Penitent Engines

3-9 Arco Flagellants 

Exorcist

 

Looking at that list, that actually isn't all that bad. Let's do this!

 

My goal is to have the Lord Inquisitor and his remaining =][= Storm Troopers finished before the new PE, Arcos, and Exorcist are released. Then I can buy those models absolutely guilt free.

Good to see Soulis and his retinue back to smiting the Emperor's foes! Clearing your backlog before new models is a worthy goal and good motivation :tu: Keep us updated with your progress Nico :)

Thanks WarriorFish!

 

I realized I forgot to post pics of one of the centrepiece units of my army:

 

med_gallery_66537_9465_107855.jpg

 

My Inquistiorial Valkyrie! Ok, it's the one unit that was not available in Codex: Witchhunters, but its just so cool that I make the exception. Plus the suicide Acolyte squad that jumps out of it has been a ton of fun for a couple of editions now:

 

med_gallery_66537_9465_1458.jpg

 

Although their configuration will chance since Crusaders and Mystics can no longer be included in war bands; they'll now be 3x plasma and 1x Bolter.

I love seeing the old metal stormtroopers still being used and that’s a good use of Fantasy bits for crusaders. I think your honor guard should have as many old school models as possible, it’s a great look.

Good call Fajita Fan ... the old-school Storm Troopers don't have the "bling" that Scions do, but they're old school, so they can represent the experienced, hardened veterans who have been following Lord Inquisitor Soulis around for a good long while.

Fine works. I especially like your Inquisitorial storm troopers.

Edited by Bjorn Firewalker, 04 January 2020 - 10:24 PM.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

Good stuff!

I especially like the stormtroopers and their rides. I think it's tough to get the right balance of red and gold with the black without it looking tacky but you nailed it. I think I tend towards too much gold myself if I'm being honest...

Also I like the weathering on the valk. Such cool models. I'm glad to hear that you're getting use out of it too!
