Hello Dakka bloggers, Gitz has been after me to start a blog for some time so here goes. A little general information about me, I have been gaming since my teens (Ogre, D&D during the Gygax era) when I started painting some fantasy figures. When Space Hulk first came out I picked up the game and a few of my friends and I started playing. We loved the whole Alien feel about the game and decided to try some 40k when Rogue Trader was available.

I started playing Eldar and my brother collected Blood Angels, a few of our other friends played Space Wolves, Orcs and Genestealers. Our group played for about a year then broke apart from most of them moving away. I continued to pick up a few models and the boxed set from 2nd or 3rd edition, but really did not play again till the start of 6th edition. Pretty sure that is when I met Gitz and the rest of the boyz that I game with to this day.

Here is a few pictures of what I have been working on this year, I dont consider myself a artist but really enjoy the painting aspect of the game.

Wow, that's some really lovely eldar! What army is the henchman marine for, I guess with 40k these days he and the inquisitor he goes with could be for your eldar

Yorkright and I have this long standing campaign going on between our armies. Originally, it was his Blood Angels vs my Mantis Warriors with an Inquisitor as the catalyst. Now it's expanded well beyond that. There's no telling which inquisitor this marine is intended for or what nefarious plot they will be hatching against our heroes... the noble Mantis Warriors!

Hahaha I have a feeling his view on which side are the "heroes" differs a bit!

Progress update: Was not happy with the red hammer, still not enthused but will go with the way it is now. Worked up the flesh tones, the reason I went with the purple was an attempt to make skin look warm. The armor is supposed to look battle damaged, does anyone have some pointers for that?

Thanks for looking.

I like what you've done with the battle damage... it may be a bit too subtle though. Perhaps a bit of sponge-chipping to get the idea across in a more obvious manner?

Head looks really good by-the-way. Always something I struggle with.

Howdy, the henchman is looking grizzled and diligent.... however..... THAT IS A CHAOS POWER PACK! I believe the Inquisition would have a word with you, my good sir...

Does that not present an alarming hypocrisy? Where is the stake to burn at around here?

Very nice weathering! I like that you went for a drybrush approach rather than line highlighting, as it makes for a more believeable result IMHO. Have you any plans for basing yet?

I think it looks really good Yorkright. Not too dense and concentrated in the forward-facing areas that are likely to take the most abuse.

Thanks for the encouraging words guys. For basing I am leaning 2 ways, first is to base him as my other Inquisitor models the other is I have a box of the GW industrial bases. Going with the GW bases would mean changing over the others, most of those are metal and would be a pain to do.

Great weathering. If he is going with your other inquisition models, then I'd personally stick with the basing scheme

I love sponge chipping, minimal effort for a great effect. Looking forward to what you have in store here Yorkright!

Thanks for the comments fellows. Here is the first of my Inquisitors deathwatch, they do not wear the normal silver shoulder pads or adorn themselves with alot of Inquisitor bling. The story is the group introduced themselves to Jaxeena committing themselves to her cause, all their normal chapter markings have been covered up or scratched off. Most of the armor they wear is quite old and some have had to "find" replacement parts of dubious origin.

Looking through my rather large collection I found a few more old models that will be added to the Band. Will post after I rebase them.
