Hello everyone,

Even the most crazed follower of the blood god needs some variety from time to time. And frankly, I’m a sucker for being distracted by side projects anyway, so I guess it was just a matter of time…

I have always been interested in the background laid down by the game Inquisitor, ever since it was released in the late 90s. For those of you not in the know, Inquisitor is a game about the shadowy wars between members of the Holy Inquisition and various heretics, aliens and other undesirables. It is also a game about the wars between loyal Inquisitors and their fallen brethren. Or between two Inquisitors of merely different philosophies. Inquisitor is firmly rooted in 40k lore, perhaps, it might be argued, even more so than regular Warhammer 40k, but it’s not a game about large scale warfare. It’s about the shadows, the places in between the cracks. It’s about the strange and sometimes demented characters that can be seen lurking around in the background of John Blanche’s illustrations. It is also utterly fantastic.

But I feel a bit like I am preaching to the choir here. So, long story short, if you don’t know anything about Inquisitor, shame on you! ;-)

The original Inquisitor was played in a 54mm scale with very big, detailed models. And this is probably the reason why it took me so long to catch on: Those models were great, but they were all metal and there was only so much variety. As an avid converter of plastic models, I wasn’t too impressed.

And then I happened upon several websites advertising playing Inquisitor at the 28mm scale. Either by employing a hybrid of the Inquisitor and Necromunda rulesets called “Inquisimunda” or by using the original rules. And suddenly, a whole new universe opened up: I could build characters for Inquisitor in a scale I was already comfortable with, using all the great bits from the Warhammer Fantasy and 40k lines. Or from anywhere I liked. I was immediately hooked!

At the same time, I discovered the work of a number of truly spectacularly talented people who had built their own Inquisior models at 28mm: Commissar Molotov, migsula, PDH and JRN, to name just a few extraordinary artists. When I saw those models, I was sure that I absolutely HAD to build my own Inquisitor retinues. Here’s where I was after a couple of months:



You may have seen this image already on Molotov’s blog, Inq28. This is the motley crew of misfits accompanying the radical Inquisitor Lazarus Antrecht. In the future, I will be showcasing each of my Inquisitor models in more detail, describing the conversion work as well as the general background for the character. We’ll start off with the big man, the Inquisitor himself:



Inquisitor Lazarus Antrecht, Ordo Malleus

There is no simple truth when it comes to Inquisitor Lazarus Antrecht of the Ordo Malleus: Some say he is a loyal servant of the Throne. Some call him a dangerous radical. Others maintain that he has turned, fallen away from the light of the Emperor and come to worship the ruinous powers.

Many have tried to ascertain which school of thought within the holy Inquisition Lazarus Antrecht follows. It seems reasonably certain that he was once an Amalathian, but his ideals seem to have changed somewhere along the way. There are those who now call him an Istvaanian, perhaps even with Xanthite leanings, while more jaded members of the Inquisition argue that Antrecht is the sole follower of the philosphy of Antrechtism, a true army of one. The truth is that Lazarus Antrecht would probably laugh at all of those attempts at classification: It is for him alone and for the God Emperor of Mankind to know where his true allegiance lies.

The fact that Antrecht shows only disdain for those who question his loyalty to the Emperor and the secrecy with which he surrounds himself have convinced more puritan elements within the Ordos that he is a dangerous heretic who must be taken down for the good of the Imperium, and many have tried, among them his former friend Inquisitor Gotthardt of the Ordo Hereticus. So far, he has managed to elude his pursuers, but he has been forced ever deeper into the shadows, manipulating and plotting where other Inquisitors would conduct their work more openly. This suits him fine, however, for Lazarus Antrecht is a true puppetmaster, highly intelligent and with piercing insight into the inner workings of the Imperium. By sheer necessity, Antrecht has become well aquainted with the shadows, and it is no wonder that his retinue comprises many colourful indivduals from the somewhat …darker corners of the galaxy.

Accordingly, there are few means that the Inquisitor would refrain from using. He is convinced that every tool has its use. And in Lazarus Antrecht’s world, almost everything can become a tool at the right time.

Whatever it is that the Inquisitor truly seeks, one thing is clear: Those who find themselves between him and his goals have to face a formidable and resourceful opponent.




The model for Inquisitor Antrecht was very much inspired by Phil Kelly’s Inquisitor Liechtenstein (who in turn is a conversion of the original Eisenhorn model). I really wanted to create a model that, while not clad in ornate Power armour, would convey a sense of confidence and experience. I have always loved Phil Kelly’s retine for Inquisitor Liechtenstein, so that was the perfect place to go to for inspiration!

Antrecht was built using mainly parts from the Cadian Command Squad. The puny Laspistol was exchanged for a suitably bulky Boltpistol. His secondary sidearm comes from the Kroot kit. And finally, his daemon sword is a standard sword from the Warhammer Fantasy Warriors of Chaos. I wanted something clearly chaotic without going totally overboard, so I think the sword was a nice compromise.

The most important part of the model (and basically of any Inquisitor) was the head: I chose a bare head from the Chaos Terminator Lord box. Not only did it resemble the original Eisenhorn head, but it also had an expression of slightly haughty amusement – very fitting for an Inquisitor who has seen quite a lot in his career and feels he knows something that most of his critics don’t. The base was done using a resin piece from the 40k basing set.

I wanted Antrecht to look somewhat distinguished, even regal, but without being to gaudy in the colour department, so I went for luxurious tones that were still slightly subdued. The below average freehand =I= symbol on his shoulder admittedly was a moment of weakness – I might replace it with a decal somewhere along the way.

So, that’s my rundown on Inquisitor in general and my own Inquisitor Antrecht in particular. Let me know what you think!

Saw these guys on Inq28 and thought they were fantastic....as you know I had to tell others.

So since they are here in the nice to use Dakka, rather than the pain in the arse Blogger, I shall ask the question that has been burning in my head since....

How did you do paint the blue jacket that Antrecht is wearing? I love it.

These guys are absolutely fantastic! I hope you get to have at least one game with them.

Looking forward to seeing more.

Hey Peter,

thanks for the kind words!

Concerning your question: The jacket was painted with a basecoat mixed from equal parts GW Chaos Black and Vallejo Halcon Milenario Turquoise (GW Hawk Turquoise should yield very similar results, I have no idea what would be a corresponding colour in the new GW paint range, though). For the highlights, more Turquoise was added to the mix. Quite an easy recipe. Oh, and I also used a lighter shade of the colour on his Daemon weapon.

Hope that helps

@Hologram: While I'll yet be dealing with the Mandalorian in detail, I think I can already reveal to you that the head is simply a Khorne Berzerker helmet with the "Bunny ears" clipped off. Most Boba Fett conversions do this, so I guess it's not too much of a secret

So here's the next member of Antrecht's warband and the first model I ever built for Inquisitor: Magos Explorator Hiram Zeiss.



Magos Explorator Hiram Zeiss

Magos Hiram Zeiss has always been a treasure hunter of sorts, but in his case, the treasure in question is knowledge. Educated on Mars, Magos Zeiss quickly displayed a thirst for knowledge that even his senior Mechanicus priests found slightly disquieting. Additionally, all attempts to keep his questing mind contained within the confines of a Mechanicus Forgeworld proved futile. Magos Zeiss was thus elevated to the rank of Magos Explorator and inducted into one of the Explorator fleets constantly scouring the galaxy for lost knowledge from the Dark Age of Technology. It was during this quest that Zeiss and his team came under attack from a Xeno-cult on the world of Varunth Minoris, and the Explorator party was nearly wiped out. It was only through the intervention of Inquisitor Antrecht that Magos Zeiss survived. He has been a member of the Inquisitor’s entourage ever since.

It would, however, be very naive to think that his association with Antrecht is based on some kind of gratitude: Aloof and emotionless beyond measure, Magos Zeiss has simply realised that the Inquisitor’s highly unconventional modus operandi is very likely to lead him to all kinds of forgotten places and, by extension, to many caches of forgotten knowledge as well.

In his pursuit of knowledge, Hiram Zeiss has gone further than most members of the Mechanicus, and it is his relentless quest for things some would say were best left forgotten that have alienated him from his fellow Magi. At best, the techpriests of Mars regard him as a wayward child. But there are also those who think that Magos Zeiss is walking a very dangerous road and that his quest had best be ended before he ever reaches the end of it…



Let me start off by saying that I think that there is a severe shortage of Mechanicus models. Sure, you’ve got the Enginseer and a FW Magos, but apart from that, the Mechanicus doesn’t get much love from GW, which, in my opinion, is pretty hard to justify: Those guys are just oozing the gothic madness that is Warhammer 40k. So it was clear to me that one of my Inquisitor models would have to be a Magos. Once again, I was drawn to Phil Kelly’s models for inspiration. It doesn’t take a degree in rocket science to see that I was quite heavily inspired by his Magos Demitri model when I built Hiram Zeiss.

The base for the model were a WFB Empire flagellant body, head and right arm. I think that the tattered robes are a very good fit for an obsessed Magos on the run. I added a respirator and bionic arm from the Cadian Command sprue and cobbled together some kind of servo harness from a couple of bits. This piece of equipment helps him on his quest for knowledge by providing all the tools you might need in dark and abandoned places, i.e. a chainblade and some kind of plasma cutter. The upside is that the tools can also be used to tear through any competition if need be

Looking back on it now, it might have been better to go for some believable Mechadendrites instead of the clunky backpack, but oh well…



All that was left were some finishing touches: The head of the chainaxe (a nod to Phil Kelly’s Magos Dimitry) came from the Khorne Berzerkers and the original (bare) feet of the model were replaced with feet I cut off an old Space Crusade android. This was supposed to show that Hiram is a bit more augmented under the hood than you might initally suspect.

When painting him, going for red robes was a no-brainer. I did however try to make them look threadbare and stained. For his skin, I went for a bloodless, dead look. The rest were various shades of metal and rust. I did also try to add a (fairly primitive) lighting effect to his plasma cutter.

All in all, I wanted him to be clearly identifiable as a Mechanicus model, but at the same time to look somewhat unkempt and frayed around the edges. Just the right appearance for a rogue Magos who is obsessed with his quest for knowledge…

So there, my second INQ28 model. Hope you enjoyed the ride C&C are always welcome!

The magos really is excellent, for the simplicity of the conversion. The red is a lovely shade. You're good at painting robes and cloth.

I'm looking forward to close ups of each of the warband now.

Alright, everyone, here’s another Inquisitor model, and this time I even have some WIP pictures. Yay!

To me, one of the most interesting archetypes in Inquisitor is that of the Daemonhosts: They really show the extent of what some Inquisitors are prepared to do in their service to the Emperor. And with Lazarus Antrecht being an indiviual of a fairly radical persuasion, it was clear to me that I would need a Daemonhost for his retinue.

Unfortunately, the official GW models at 28mm are, in a word, hideous (and not in a good way) and lack nearly all of the subtle menace exuded by the original Cherubael model – if anything, they look like amateurish attempts at recapturing what made Cherubael so great. So it stood to reason that I would once again have to resort to my two favourite pasttimes: converting and kitbashing. After a bit of research, I discovered a couple of great options for converting a daemonhost. Two of my favourites were these:

http://i189.photobucket.com/albums/z121/mnesimache/inq28/DaemonhostFinal.jpg
http://www.pbase.com/migsula/image/67702961/original.jpg

There was a problem though: Both models used the same head from the WFB Warriors of Chaos, incidentally one of my favourite heads ever. These were so hard to get by that there was no way I would use up one of my stock on a non World Eaters model. And I also really didn’t want to use the horrible metal models as a basis for my conversion. What to do?

I jumped in at the deep end and bought a box of Crypt Ghouls. It seemed to me that those were the models with the look most fitting for a Daemonhost: tortured, emaciated and with a slightly feral quality. Plus I would have lots and lots of leftovers for different projects (Twists, Arco Flagellants,…) So, after much bending and cutting and some greenstuffing to boot, here’s what I came up with:



As you can probably see, the legs, torso, arms and head all come from the Crypt Ghouls, so that was quite easy. I did however have to do quite a serious bit of work on the pose: Crypt Ghouls are all hunchbacked and bent forward, while I wanted my Daemonhost to be floating and looking like its poor body was at full stretch. I achieved this by changing the way the torso connects to the legs and by greenstuffing in a new stomach. I hid the rough spots of the conversion behind some kind of religious icon – no idea where this came from. I also repositioned the arms so that the Daemonhost looked like it was reaching for something only visible to itself. Again, the seams of the conversion work were camouflaged, this time with a purity seal.

I also wanted to have the Daemonhost clearly floating, so I had to find something to keep it in the air. In the end, I used a part of a chain from the Chaos vehicle sprue. It was stable enough to hold the model in the air, and the skull attached to its end offered a solid point of contact with the base. Further chains were added to show how the Daemonhost is bound and “weighed down”. I kept the strange, bony quills emerhing from the model’s back since they fitted the concept of daemonic possession in my opinion. I also added a tongue from a Bloodletter of Khorne to enhance the appearance. The last part of the conversion was the base: I used some cork and a couple of strange spikes from the Chaos Terminator Lord sprue.



When it came to painting the model, I went for a very unhealthy skin tone achieved by generously washing a basecoat of GW Dheneb Stone with GW Leviathan Purple. This led to an almost pink colour (maybe even too much so, in hindsight), but the colour added to the twisted, inhuman feeling of the model, so I guess that it’s all cool in the end.



The rest was all detailing. I highlighted the scars and welts all over the model and painted all the details. The bone quills and tongue were painted purple to show how the daemon is slowly emerging fromwithin the host body, twisting and transforming it in the process. The spikes on the base were painted to look like some kind of daemonic growth erupting from the floor as the Daemonhost floats by.





While there is a couple of rough spots on the model, I still far prefer it to the official GW ones. So with the modeling and painting out of the way, all that remained was to cook up some background for the character…



Daemonhost Zalambur

Inquisitor Antrecht still thought about Rikkert Nozick from time to time, and it was always a bittersweet memory. When Antrecht had come to Barsavia Hive to investigate the actions of the notorious Heretek Amnon Helix, Rikkert had been there from the start, trying to be helpful and ingratiate himself with the Inquisitor. Still, he had been a competent guide and managed to open quite a few doors in the hive, so Antrecht had indulged him.

Then the young man had asked to be inducted into the Inquisitor’s retinue, and while Antrecht had laughed at the audacity of the idea, he had still seriously considered it. He hated to let a potential asset go to waste, after all. But he had felt something in the young man that he did not like, some kind of inner flaw or deficiency, hidden by his eagerness to please. And while Antrecht could not quite put his finger on what it was that was bothering him, he had felt that there was a thirst within Rikkert Nozick that could never be quenched by service to the God Emperor alone. So Antrecht had turned him down and set off into the underhive on his own.

But fate is a harsh mistress, or so they say, and so when Antrecht was dangling above a yawning chasm, bloodied and broken after his confrontation with the heretic Helix, just barely hanging on with his last ounce of strength, it was Rikkert Nozick who had slipped from the shadows and offered to save the Inquisitor. He did however have one condition: Antrecht’s life would be saved, but Rikkert would join him as a member of his retinue when he left the planet.

Antrecht had little choice in the matter if he wanted to live, so he gave his word. He limped from the underhive, hurt but alive, leaning on his new “apprentice”, for that was how the young man had come to see himself.

The Inquisitor had other plans, however, for he simply could not trust a man who had used a moment of weakness to haggle for privileges. But then, a promise had been made, and Lazarus Antrecht knew a lot about the importance of promises.

Fortunately, fate intervened again: An interesting opportunity presented itself soon afterwards and so, when Inquisitor Antrecht left the planet, young Nozick joined him as a permanent member of his retinue. His wish had been fulfilled.

All this Antrecht remembered. And as he cast a sideways glance at the pale creature floating along next to him, he could not help but think that there was still much of the young man he had encountered in Barsavia Hive in its sharp features. The Daemonhost noticed Antrecht’s attention and bared its iron teeth in a rictus grin. Yes, even now, the resemblance was uncanny.

Inquisitor Antrecht still thought about Rikkert Nozick from time to time. And it was always a bittersweet memory.
And a reminder to always be careful what you wish for.


So, what do you think?

The corpse cart! That's an option I didn't even think of in the first place. Oh well, I guess bending the arms and legs in the right direction and adding rough areas of greenstuff did work out in the end, so...

Well, the flagellants and Chrono Gladiator will yet have to wait a while. I want to post something bigger on them as soon as I have written some kind of fluff. As a little consolation prize, here's the Bounty Hunter though. Far be it from me to displease one of my most frequent commenters



It's really not that hard to guess who this guy is based on. It's also not a very original idea: There's lots of Boba Fett conversions here on Dakka alone. I stumbled upon some of them and felt the ambition to build my own version. And that was it, I simply had to try it



He's a pretty easy kitbash too: I used legs from the Chaos Marauders, a Cadian torso, some old CSM arms and a helmet from the Khorne Berzerkers with the "bunny ears" clipped off. Then I added a couple of accessories from the Kroot kit. His pistol was spliced together from an old Boltpistol and the shaft of an old WFB Chaos Warrior halberd - yes, really

Since he's more or less a fun project, I didn't really envision him as a character the way I did with the other members of Antrecht's retinue. I just thought that he'd make a cool enough Bounty Hunter. And the original Boba Fett's freelancer attitude fit with Antrecht's outlook quite nicely, so he became a member of this particular family

However, after a bit of thought, a couple of ideas how to insert him into "official" 40k lore presented themselves:



Bounty Hunter "The Mandalorian"

Not much is known about the mysterious figure frequently accompanying Lazarus Antrecht on his more "colourful" outings. He is a Bounty Hunter, that much is clear. A sellsword to be sure. And, without any doubt, a professional. Few have seen him without his trademark suit of battered armour of an unknown provenience. However, those who have managed to catch a glimpse of his features and body maintain that his skin is a milky white, making him look more like a ghost than a man. If this strange feature is caused by his habit of always covering his body or it is the product of something more sinister seems impossibly to ascertain. Some whisper about an army created from the genestock of the Imperium's greatest, a force of Albino warriors surrounded by misfortune and secrecy. And while no one would ever openly confront the Mandalorian with these rumours, there is a name that follows him wherever he goes, a whisper, passing through the shadows: "Afriel"...

Right, I guess that's all there is to him. Let me know what you think

You're right though: With this project, the development of characters is really paramount - something that often gets shoved into the background with "regular" 40k armies. Although I have to say that my working on Inquisitor models has had a great impact on how I build my models for my World Eaters: more as characters, less as playing pieces

Vielen Dank! Ich fühle mich geschmeichelt

At the moment, I am just finishing up a number of posts on my second Chaos Dread. After that, this thread will get its next update with another member of Antrecht's retinue.

These are looking great I'm really impressed by how close you got the Inquisitor to Eisenhorn.

"But me no buts! Our comrades get hurt. Our friends die. Falkenburg is a knight who swore an oath to serve the church and to defend the weak. He'd be the first to tell you to stop puling and start planning. Because what we are doing-at risk to ourselves-is what we have sworn to do. The West relies on us. It is a risk we take with pride. It is an oath we honour. Even when some soft southern burgher mutters about us, we know the reason he sleeps soft and comfortable, why his wife is able to complain about the price of cabbages as her most serious problem and why his children dare to throw dung and yell "Knot" when we pass. It's because we are what we are. For all our faults we stand for law and light.

Thanks, mate! To tell you the truth, I was kinda surprised too

In the end, it all comes down to the choice of head, in my opinion. So my advice to everyone building Inquisitor models would be to have a very good look at heads from all the different GW armies and systems (and maybe even beyond that)!

Which head was it though? Looking beyond GW's range is something I already do I'm working on a Grey Knights Army and the main basis is on old Rackham models although the odd Black Scorpion and Lead Adventure has been known to make an appearance. I've also sort of slipped and made an entire Zulu guard army.

The head is from the Chaos Terminator Lord kit. It's one of the two bare-headed options that come with the kit. It's also easily one of my favourite head options, because the look of haughty arrogance is great for Chaos Lords and Inquisitors alike It also does look quite a bit like Eisenhorn.
