Thanks @PDH! Your Inq28 work has been a huge inspiration.

So the Hive City boards were finished in the nick of time for our Inq28 game up here in Huddersfield yesterday. Bit of a photo dump below - we had a blast, and the terrain will now stay at the club for Necromunda games.

As always, c&c very welcome. I'm going to take a short break from terrain building (though not long since the new LoER challenge is up and running), and build/paint some minis. WIP shots to follow...

Thanks for dropping in.

Thanks for the kind words, folks.

And now for something completely different...

Three Inq28 figures... The first is a Rogue Trader, who will be getting her own warband; the other two are part of my Ordo Xenos Inquisitor's team.

A very quick upload of my Ordo Xenos warband, or at least the completed ones.
(L-R) Magos Biologis, Tracker/Sniper, Inquisitor, Interrogator and Stormtrooper. There's a servitor on the painting desk as well, just deciding what else to add.
c&c welcome as always, thanks for having a look.

And something completely different again!

Can't remember if I've posted this guy before, he's a Genestealer-infected civilian scrap-hauler for the Nestorian Infestation campaign (check out https://bigbossredskullz.com/2018/01/16/infesting-a-population-nestorian-style/ for more info.

Yes you've posted him but w/o paint. That's a brutal looking model. The 41st millennium is a wretched and hopeless place.

Thanks guys. @Skalk, that's exactly what interests me about the 40k universe (and why I tend increasingly to go in for games like Inquisitor and Necromunda rather than 40k itself).

So, since it's International Women's Day, here's a pic of my new Inq28 warband. They'll be led by Rogue Trader Calissa Peronix (centre) along with her two daughters (currently different stages of WIP). Looking forward to building a cast of supporting characters for them with a strong Mechanicus flavour plus ship's crew.

As always c&c very welcome, thanks all who take the time to read and comment.

@Cam, I thought you posted a picture of a punt gun at first.

@Apollinaire: Nice! I think we'd all love to hear the backstory you create about them as the full team develops.

Thanks guys, @Cam love the photo! It is a bit of a ridiculous weapon, I've been toying with the idea of putting her on a long base with a tripod.

It's been a busy (ish) weekend of putty work, priming, and scrounging junk for more terrain... Photo update to follow (hopefully) in daylight tomorrow!

Bit of a photo dump coming up here...

First up, WIP photos of my new Necromunda Orlock gang. I decided to go old school rather than investing in the new kit just now. They're a mixture of the old metal and plastic minis salvaged from my mum's attic (I bought some of these guys when I was 13!!!) plus 3 of the female gangers from Copplestone miniatures (all patched up and/or converted).

Next pic is my latest terrain junk-build - a chemical factory and base for my Escher gang. (More photos on the current LoER thread).

And finally a kit-bashed Daemonhost I've been messing around with, to join one of my Inquisitor's retinues.

As always, c&c very welcome and thanks for taking a look.

It's cool that you customized your Orlock gang, I always enjoy that. It looks like your daemon host is going to be tramped in some kid of tank to contain him? That's a cool idea.

Yeah, the new Orlocks look great but I really wanted to re+use the few survivors from my original late-90s gang...

The Daemonhost is going to be heavily chained up, I had some spare bitz lying around from the 40k tactical objectives kit so I'm going for a mobile glass-fronted coffin/prison idea.

Dude! Where did you get that awesome vaulted see-through case-tube thing? I've been looking for something like that for ever and it's perfect!

Thanks for sharing those pics. I always enjoy seeing people pull out 20+ year old models for another run around on the table.

The Daemon Host is inspired and I'm really looking forward to seeing where it goes.

Bit more work done on my Rogue Trader & crew, so here goes a bit of fluff to accompany the pics...


Calissa Perronix is a Rogue Trader fallen on difficult times. She comes from an aristocratic family, a powerful and influential lineage. In her younger days she travelled beyond the very edges of the Imperium, seeking wealth and knowledge amongst the stars. And soon she will again. But for now, she finds herself stranded on the hive world of Piety in the Calixis sector. When her ship dropped out of the warp on the edge of the system, the sanctioned psyker on her crew, old and wise though he was, finally lost his mind to the terrors of the immaterium. The horror he unleashed tore through the Explorator vessel and most of the crew in minutes. Calissa had seen a thousand horrors on the edge of the known galaxy, but what now appeared within her very ship was far beyond her experience. She made it to the shuttle bay with her daughters, Sabine and Lisbet, and her loyal abhuman bodyguard Kollyn. They took the shuttle to the nearest planet and left their great vessel (and her entire crew) to its unspeakable fate.

Calissa's daughters are polar opposites and dislike each other greatly. In keeping with the family's inherited ambitiousness, they are both determined to be the sole heir to their mother's fortune and lucrative Explorator's License when she retires or worse. Sabine is outgoing and flamboyant, an agile warrior who wields dual heirloom pistols and likes to see into the eyes of her enemies before dispatching them and dancing away to safety. Lisbet is quiet and sullen, especially since losing both legs beneath the knee in a xenos ambush when she was a teenager. She also carries a family heirloom, a sniper rifle of remarkable accuracy, and her mother gifted her the finest bionics she could buy. So Lisbet can usually be found moving silently but surely across rooftops, towers and walkways, dispatching threats before the rest of the crew know they are there.

And Kollyn... well. No-one is quite sure what race Kollyn is. Possibly Ogryn, possibly mutant, possibly worse. But a lifelong servant of the Perronix household, his loyalty is unquestionable, and he would step into the face of any horror to protect the members of the family.

So for now, the Perronix family are stranded, with only a short range shuttle, no crew, and limited access to their enormous wealth. They have many challenges to face before they set off for the outer edges once again, not least finding a suitable spacecraft and the companions who will join them.


So I know I'm not a great writer, but you get the gist. Here are some photos:

Loving your work on here! I've been acquiring bits and pieces myself with a view to making an INQ28 warband and this is some inspiring stuff.

Thanks mate, I appreciate it. When you get your warband underway you'll have to pop over the Pennines for a game! Inq28 is pretty addictive once you start, though

Nice work on the female contingent, always good to see. Not silly, just as it should be. All looking good bud, gritty.
