Just finished up another acolyte!
This was one of the first finished minis that I converted back around October last year, when I returned to the hobby, so he's one of my favorites.
I'm pretty pleased with how he's turned out - as opposed to the last few, he's just a rank-and-file grunt. I decided, as no one important, he ought to be a bit bloodied and battered.
The shaven head and dented head particularly made me think of that in his case (maybe a few real-world characters I've had the misfortune of encountering...) he ought to be maybe the bloodiest of the lot. As I was painting, the scarred side of his face seemed to become even more raw and mutilated, to the point where I decided that he probably wouldn't have an eye, and that I ought to go all-out on the gore, and continue experimenting with that with him in particular.

Hope you all enjoy!

A few update shots for ya!
I've mostly finished the bases for this army now. I've tried to match them to my Black Templars - I want to be able to ally all my imperial armies, so they're all gonna have a similar Tyrant Skull desert base scheme (though these aren't done in the exact same way as my marines).
I'm also inching towards finishing my henchmen, finally, though, as they're unfinished, I've put them in the background
Once my Genestealer cultists are finished (I'm hoping I can get them done today!), the Inquisition will have my fullest attention again.

A couple of weeks ago, my trusty Panasonic TZ57 finally gave up the ghost.
I've treated myself to an upgrade - a mighty Nikon (I use their F1 as well, so I've already got a few lenses to play with) D7100, and I got a nice zoom lense for it too. I'm very much still learning the ropes with it at the minute tho, so I've been shooting as much as possible to try and get a feel for it. Unfortunately, the only time my apartment is filled with natural sunlight is at about 5 am, so I've had to grapple with low shutter speeds, shaky hands, and a t-shirt lightbox, because I'm a dummy.

As ever, thanks for checking this project out! If you've got any C+C (camera nerds pls help me), I'd love to hear it! Big cheers to everyone for their kind comments so far!

I was hoping to get the rest of the acolytes finished this weekend, but it looks like I'll be working Saturday and Sunday, so chances are I won't get any painting done.

But I finished this guy up last night - he's one of my favorites. Initially, I was hesitant to use too many admech parts, but pretty severely felt the constraint on my resources out here. This guy was probably the first I assembled with 'cybernetics', as like a test - before that I had only used the arms with fully-human hands.
I liked the result so much that a whole bunch of the other henchmen have prosthetics too. I see them as closer to civilian-grade limbs, a far cry from the augmentations of the space marines. Instead, these rust, jam and ratchet, a constant inconvenience. Some are in penance, others as a punishment, most, simply as grim replacements. I see this guy particularly as a bit of an ad-mech-aboo, though maybe he was once wealthy (or valuable) enough that he suffered a horrific injury, then was brought back, or perhaps forced to be grafted to a machine to better serve the rest of the unit.
I also got a bit braver with my micron pen, and I'm pretty happy with the results.
As ever, lemme know what you think!

So, last night, I finished the last of my henchmen! Having spent a while (it's monsoon season here, so there's precious little else to do but hide from storms and sweat) painting these guys over the last week or so, I'm finally done.

This whole project has been a blast since I started it one rainy October night in Tokyo. A massive thanks to all the people who have said so many kind things about my painting. I started in the hobby about 3 years ago. Without getting too off-tangent, the Poser McBogus of 3 years ago was a significantly less happy, well-rounded Poser McBogus.
I still don't think of myself as a particularly great painter, but I have always wanted to better myself, and this project in particular gave me an opportunity to return to the hobby whilst pushing myself. I hope, whoever you are, you enjoy the results.

For now, this is the end of the Inquisition stuff I'll be doing for the foreseeable future.
Rest assured, I will return to this army, and, if all goes to plan, you might see my Ad-Mech and Dark Eldar stuff cropping up here and there in a few weeks time.

Damnit! A lot of these are just a little out of focus! Still learning the ropes with the new camera

New job, new country, new Inquisitors, babyyyyyyyy

To contrast with my previous batch of henchmen, I've grabbed a box of custodes. Where my scraggly fanatic mob represent the lower end of the inquisitorial echelons, I thought these guys would make a very nice fill in for power-armored acolytes, done up to the nines thanks to perhaps a very generous patron, or a particularly fruitful bounty/raid.

In my madness, I also decided to magnetize their wrists. I feel like magnetization is a rite of passage for any aspiring warhammer modeler, and while I like the thought of kitting them out with the vanilla guardian spears, and calling it a bolter/power weapon as I please...

...the lure of melta, too? Too much to resist. I've just finished drilling out the holes, and while there's a bit if damage here and there (did I mention I'm also trying to get good at greenstuff? because I am), it's nothing I don't think I could patch up.
Here's the first of the 5. Kinda simple, but imposing and regal at the same time. Still chewing the fluff for these newer boyos over... (They probably aren't real custodes, because I like my custodes only in the palace on terra being shiny and invincible and not much else)

Thanks for looking!

Custodes? What Custodes?

So, I'm trying to get back into painting regularly, and have thrown a variety of odd-job and want-to-paint-somedays. Grombrindal, obviously has made the cut. Decided that he's an Ordo Xenos henchman, who runs about mostly hating orks, but also does a few other oddjobs on the side. He's very proud of being a Squat Slayer, and thus routinely gets very stroppy when most folks assume he's some kind of odd ginger ratling.
Looking for a bit of C+C, and maybe tips on how to paint flowing beer? Thinking of a darker yellow (I imagine it's not very dwarven to drink larger, but I feel like dark rich browns are gonna get lost here...

...and I really like larger, alright? There! I said it!) and then rakarth and and palid wytch for the foam! Also, his face isn't finished. Going for a facial tattoo, but I need to work out a couple kinks first...

Cheers! There should be some more on the way eventually... They might get some reinforcements from a certain crime-ridden hive planet...
