Tyranids look good. Jazzed to see some =][= stuff going on. Love that you have used the Locus. Such a great model. Beastman came out very well. I will echo the praise for the fair skintone.

Those gargoyles look great, you seem to have found the knack for the contrast paints on nids.

The Beastman looks cool, will his mates also be similarly toned? Great blending in his skin!

A great start on the inquisitor and his retinue. Given the tight turnaround, will they be getting the contrast treatment ?

No problem, looking forward to see what you have planned

Yeah the locus is a great model, had to include it in the retinue somewhere. Inquisition stuff is for a narrative 40K event where you need a inquisitor and retinue as part of the army. Went last year and really enjoyed it, good to have an event with more fluffy armies. Good excuse to model up some random dudes. Must dig out last year's retinue for the blog.

Thanks gobert, contrast is certainly working well for the little nids, carapaces on the bigger bugs aren't looking too good to be honest. No contrast planned on the retinue - I found with the nids that it takes a lot of trial and error to get the right look before you can get on with the quick painting, not to mention the cost of buying loads more paints! I have a few days off work before the event so hopefully that will suffice...


I've done a bit more building of the retinue, but first up - I've reached page 3 of the blog so time to celebrate by painting a random old mini - this time an old wood elf musician:



Tried to have a go at a crystal blade, went ok for a first try but defintely needs more practice (looks worse in the photos than in real life). Other than that fairly pleased with how it turned out.

The retinue has expanded, just the inquisitor and a familiar to finish. Here are the built models

the familiar so far, still needs some wings, an arm and a lot more work on the green stuff robes (the green stuff robes are new for me as well, only really used it for filling in gaps before. Not really got the skills for it but good learning):

and finally the inquisitor. I didn't want him to be the standard heroic looking inquisitor so I made him small and hunched using a skaven plague monk, though he does look a bit like a child with the big staff, maybe I should reduce its size? Not the finished model as he's going to be riding on a servitor walker thing to make the model stand out a bit more in the retinue

First off, that musician is glorious. The greens are supremely well done. Second, loving the idea of a diminutive Inquisitor leading a group of followers.

I agree, the wood elf looks great, the sword and gems work well together to brighten the model.

The inquisition always struck me as a place where you didn’t have to be double hard. Being overly pious and cruel should work just fine too! Your hunched, twists inquisitor fits the latter bill nicely

Thanks all for comments. Not got much done but some small progress on the inquisitors transport servitor. Still no paint on them and only 8 or so painting days left...

Some progress on the retinue, not as much as I'd hoped but most models are at least game ready. Still two days to go

That black/red/gold scheme is money. I hope they serve you well in the event.

Is that retinue for The Silent War? Have fun, if so. I can't go this year. :(

Youwashock - can't really go wrong with red/black/gold, good fallback option when time is short.

Fifty - They are for silent war. Were you at the last one at HATE?

Well, I've pretty much run out of time, only finished five of the models though I'm fairly pleased with how they turned out. The rest are base coated/shaded which will have to do, unless I can find the time for a couple of choice highlights. Don't think I've ever taken a fully finished army to an event, maybe next time..

First up the inquisitor - with more time I would have liked to do more with the I he's standing on, it looks a bit thin:


And the other finished models, a hospitaller, interrogator, familiar and pariah:

Great stuff. The interrogator does not look like someone to trifle with. The globes and vials on the hospitaler are superb, and the fiery little Inquisitor is a treat.

The hospitaller looks crisp. The torso on the pariah is also well executed. Nice skin tone you've managed.
