Hello and welcome to my "other" projects plog:)

Being a Blood Angel at heart I usually reside down deep in the Blood Angels sub-forum where I keep my 5th Company Daemonbanes work thread.
But as I'm in a hobby for several years now, it's inevitable that some stuff that is not necessarily red-armored comes to my desk. So I've decided to create a separate slow WIP thread here for all that "other" stuff.

Hope you enjoy!


To start off, here is my Eversor Assassinorum agent:

A most recent project - an Inquisitor.
Newly dropped rules made me include a Xenos Inquisitor as reinforcements in a 1111pts list for a tourney at my FLGS.
The idea came to me quite unexpectedly and so it happened that no official model was available at the time. So here is what I found:
med_gallery_105306_14251_311997.jpg

It's a 32mm scale sculpt, so a little bigger than the usual not-quite-28mm GW scale. Still he is smaller than a Primaris marine

Spoiler

Also Inquisitors are known to use many bio-enhancements to exact proper respect, so I do not see an issue here.

I've also gathered some bits to spice him up a bit. I only have a general idea of what I want with him, so we'll see how it goes. Deadline for building is Saturday. However I hope to put some paint on him as well to reduce the new model syndrome...

A quick kitbash 40k-fication later:
med_gallery_105306_14251_117797.jpgmed_gallery_105306_14251_11697.jpgmed_gallery_105306_14251_16137.jpg

 

I have to say this is a fantastic sculpt! (Afterglow Delaria Inquisitor of the One by Hexy Miniatures) Basically no mould lines and barely any overspill. Came out together without problems. Also lots of nice details like the manacles, rings, straps or the stick grenades (separate and not yet on the mini as I think they may be a bit too small for 40k).
I've chosen the loadout that will be used during the tourney. Unfortunately the hands are a little smaller than marines' hands so I will not be able to easily magnetise at the wrist without them looking odd. Perhaps Guardsmen hands would be smaller? However I really like how big Astartes' weapons look and feel in his hands :)

I still need to sort out the symbol on his right shoulder pad. Also thinking on adding something (to his left hip probably) to represent an artefact. And a servo-skull.

Hey, Mate! Thanks and welcome to the thread :)

 

Update on the Inquisitor: 
I have finalised the building phase with an Inquisition Icon cut-out form a Grey Knight pauldron. Lots and lots of filing and sanding later I was finally able to place it:
med_gallery_105306_14251_30567.jpg
I briefly contemplated an idea of adding more purity seals, but at that exact time my cyano-acrylic glue decided to run dry :P When I got a new one, the idea has evaporated and I added a servo-skull instead.

More importantly I was able to spend several hours Yesterday on painting and he is almost complete :D
I still need to base him and check for any missed details. Then some nice pictures. For now I give you an intentionally blurry sneak peak only:

Cheers!

Aaand done :)
Inquisitor Nicolau d'Salas of the Ordo Xenos:
gallery_105306_14251_2179.jpg
He is the man who's not afraid to get his hands dirty and works best in the field - right where things happen.

I'm really glad with how his leather coat came out. Definitely gives it the heavy-duty look.

Cheers!

The 12th Months Hobby Challenge has been a great thing for me in reducing my grey Pile of Shame this year smile.png It also allows me to switch from painting red, gold and black of the Blood Angels and try some other less-used colors and techniques.

 

Here is my quick take on the Culexus Assassin:
med_gallery_105306_14251_16676.jpgmed_gallery_105306_14251_464162.jpgmed_gallery_105306_14251_236215.jpgmed_gallery_105306_14251_410009.jpg

 

My, my! There is so much going on on the Animus Speculum! It took me quite some time to settle on the striped wasp-like pattern. There is something in it that immediately speaks 'DANGER'. At the same time using muted bronze allows for a bit of that 'stealthy' feel that all assassins like. I also had a lot of fun with Speculum's light and OSL effect. 

As a last-minute thought, I chose red color for the psyk-out grenades. I think it complements the whole look nicely without moving attention off from the Face-mask.

 

Hope you like him smile.png

Cheers!

A longer post, mostly some notes and thoughts to consider. 
Firstly - Sisters.

I remember I was really thrilled when Sisters of Silence were made flesh (plastic) way in 2016 as part of the Burning of Prospero. A real pity that apart from 5 models with 3 weapon options and a transport from FW, they were just left at that point in gaming terms.

Then there came all the hype (and some disappointments tongue.png ) with the new Sisters of Battle and their new releases. 

I really like the lore of both factions and a small space in the far reaches of my brain has been growing, telling me it would be nice to have an army of those at one point in the future.

Nurturing that thought, I managed to get 2 squads of SoS. Then came Sisters Veridyan and Amalina. And quite recently I got a nice deal on the SoB Army Set box...

This means that I finally got to a point, where a decision will be needed on what to do next smile.png

My Blood Angels force is still growing and my personal goal of owning a complete 5th Company (meaning - pre-fall of Cadia 100 marines) is still to be achieved. This means that the 'Sisters' project will be slow-going, but that's OK for me.

I have been thinking on the colour scheme and name for the Sisters force and stumbled upon the Argent Lynx Vigilator Mistress

Spoiler

I immediately liked the dark (grimdark!), menacing look of this sister and opted to adopt it for my force.

And to honor the unnamed Vigilator, I decided that she will be the founder of my Order.

 

The idea is that after the Emperor's internment into the Golden Throne, the Argent Lynx Vigilator Cadre continued it's service to Terra hunting for witches and agents of the Dark Gods. Eventually only a single unnamed Oblivion Knight remained and she hid among the teeming masses of humanity of the Ultima Segmentum. While she was naturally predisposed to working alone and was shunned by most of the humanity for obvious reasons, she did eventually acquired a group of followers that helped her in her hunts. It so happened that this group comprised mostly of zealous women that through time and thanks to their natural empathy were able to resist the effects a psychic null has on regular humans. Of course the Oblivion Knight was mercifully sparing them the worst effects of her aura by suppressing it when not in combat.

After her death, that group of brave women (numbering almost 50 souls at that time) decided to continue her work. 

 

Local Ecclesiarchy has long been watching the group's activities dreading their mysterious leader, but recognising their undeniable effectiveness. When they became leaderless, a decision was made that it's better to give them focus by supporting them and at the same time, ensure that they remain under control. Thus the group became a core of a newly created order of the Adepta Sororitas. Newly appointed Canoness Superior chose the name of the order to be that of the Order of the Argent Lynx. The unnamed Oblivion Knights became known within the sisterhood as a 'Blessed Founder' or Laudabilis Conditrix

 

 

Thinkig on the color scheme, I want it to be applicable for both SoS and SoB models I own. The idea is also that the Orders's colours are derived directly from the Blessed Founder's armour. The original Argent Lynx Cadre seem to be burnished iron with some very dark violet/black additions. I want to keep the burnished metal armor, but don't really want a black surplice. So far I came up with several variants:

Spoiler

 

To sum things up, here is my current Sisters pile of shame:

Cheers!

Almost half a year without updates here. But I'm still busy with my Blood Angels and with the Indomitus and subsequent releases....

AAANYWAY, I did dug up an old box from under my grandmas bed (literally), where I've found this bad boy:
med_gallery_105306_14251_1715739.jpg

Spoiler

Maugan Ra, the single most badass ELDAR in a solid metal cast standing atop a fallen EC marine (originally a slightly modified metal Space Wolf)
It's still such a fantastic sculpt!
 

Heh, I can't believe that I've painted him over 20 years ago using the original Citadel Colour Paint set smile.png
This miniature also shows my only ever time meddling with Chaos biggrin.png

By the way, Burnished Gold, Dwarven Flesh, Bronzed Flesh, Black Ink and Flesh Wash I've also found in the box look like they're still usable! Unfortunately I didn't found any Goblin Green...
