Hello all. I'm starting up a project for next year, and figured that posting here might keep me on track and get all my painting done. The basic premise for the army is a pair of semi-cooperative Inquisitors piling their resources together and crushing the enemies of the Imperium. Inquisitor Livona is an Ordo Malleus Inquisitor; psychically gifted and accompanied by a retinue of deadly professional killers, sanctioned psykers, and seconded Imperial military officers. Inquisitor Davian, on the other hand, is a Hereiticus member of the Puritan Monodominant faction- a Witchhunter whose holy cause is the destruction of all witches and mutants. He leads a tri-fold warband; one section of skilled infiltrators and spies, one of terrifying Executioners, and the last is a motely rabble of cannon-fodder he recruits from local Emperor-worshiping cults, like the Church of the Red Redemption.
The tabletop army will be fairly simple- I'll be running a mainly Scions force with a couple of attached Inquisitors for some fun backup. My Scions will be made using the Solar Auxilia models from Forge World, as I really like how they look and feel that they are both different enough from normal IG but also heavily armored to work as Scions. The really fun of the army will be the acolytes and hangers-on I'm going to have for the Inquisitors (due to the weird Inquisition rules they aren't a viable army, so they won't be on the table top). As I get further along, I will be posting story-clips/backgrounds/fun stuff for the various characters I'll have. I hope you enjoy my little corner of the Imperial war machine!
Here is what I have so far, as WIP.
From left- Inquisitor Livona, a former pit slave (currently not really sure what band he'll be with), former Imperial Navy officer, Redemptionist preacher, Primaris Psyker, former Commissar, Astropath
Up next I have a Cawdor gang to use as Davian's fodder, Kal Jericho as Davian himself, a set of Solar Auxilia (lasrifles and command) plus a Taurox Prime, and some more hired guns for Livona. All should be arriving within the next month...
