Excellent work as always. Nicely put together, and really digging the base.

Thanks Alpharius! - tbh, at the moment; none... previously: Inquisimunda 2.0 http://inquisimunda.evinwijninga.com/rules



+ Assassin-Enforcer Alvya Arianhod of the Ordo Sicarius +

+ Apprenticed to Assassin-Inquisitor Imadeus, majored in Application of Imperial Law (Arbites Enforcer equivalency) and swordsmanship, sub-specialising in a dual-wield fighting system of unknown origin +

+ Image-capture here shows Alvya wielding twin sabres, her preferred weapon system; her blades are neither blessed nor energetic, as she prefers to rely on skill over power - though she wears a personal void-shield, since she is well aware skill won't stop a las-bolt  +















Construction:

Alvya consists of a repositioned pair of Harlequin legs; icon parts from the Dark Elves (Executioners or maybe Darkshards?) as greaves; a female Harlequin torso; a Dark Elves head with some hair refinement; a Harlequin rear torso and robe part, with added robe edges; an Admech power unit, slightly rearranged; and finally the arms from a Warcry Cypher Lords twin-sword Mirrorblade dude - with one of the swords cut apart and repositioned to match the reversed grip of the other.

Yet again, I was in the zone and didn't take any pictures of this build at all.

The base was a crazy idea that worked out in the end...

Painting:

Same recipe as the previous member of the Ordo Sicarius - except for her hair, which was just one GW Hawk Turquiose glaze over the drybrush of GW Uthalan Grey.

Painting this base was all kinds of fun, as I was getting into the grim dark swing of things with this second one - though it was a merely a warm-up for the previously sneak-previewed base of Assassin-Inquisitor Imadeus!

Thanks for looking!

Cheers guys!


and lastly:

+ Assassin-Inquisitor Imadeus of the Ordo Sicarius +

+ Two centuries ago, Imadeus saw a need to her skills beyond her Ordo's delegated responsibility for monitoring the Ordo Assassinorum, and petitioned to pair with the Ordo Hereticus Witch Hunters to form a specialist team dedicated to the pursuit and termination of rogue Inquisitors +

+ Image-capture here shows her in action, armed with the consecrated Relic blade Thirst for the Blood of the Falling +













 

Construction:

Link back to the WIP posts where I detailed the construction of Imadeus:

A Return

The Undecided W][P

The only addition beyond these two WIPS was the sculpting of the left breast, and addition of the small reliquary.

Painting:

By this time I was pretty happy with the Sicarius paint recipe so her painting was pretty fast in comparison to the other two.

In fact, the longest part of painting her was the mask as it changed from steel to the bone, and her hair - the two tone-hair was actually a happy accident when I dipped my brush in the wrong pool of paint on my wet palette and without looking ran a big stroke through the lower section of her hair.

Thanks for looking!

A Darker Path
The completion of the Ordo Sicarius trio brings to a close my current series of Imperial Inquisitor retinues - as you might have noticed, these retinues are all linked across an organically-grown tale that has been forming over a seven years, since I wrote the vignette for The Brimstone Inquisitor and made the first mention of Inquisitor Kallatar - who then completely took over. I have the end in sight, planned and loosely written, however; to see her story completed - in both words and models - a change of pace is now necessary.

My modelling - as many of you have witnessed and commented on over the years - has been exacting and detailed and at times so strung out even I forgot where I was with certain characters; it has also - at times - become a very stressful thing for me; and a hobby should not be stressful.

Time to lower my too-high standards a little, to loosen up, to complete characters faster and to improve my painting as well - a somewhat paradoxical antithesis, but we all have dreams, right?

And so down a darker path we turn...

Night W][tches - The Hoplite

Been mashing this first member of my dark Inq28 warband Night Witches: Daemons together for while - okay, nearly 6 months - the main effort of conversion was making the spear - which I showed back here: W][P - The Hoplite - and the shield arm, so here's some WIPS of that...

Took this Witch Elf arm and shield, and cut the shield down to just a rectangular nubbin (no pic):


Cut this plastic disc off an egg carrier thingy from a Dollar store:


Smeared it in Milliput paste...


And more milliput paste and Mr Surfacer 500 until it looked like this:


Then glued a rod to the back and stuck it in the Dremel, spun it and smoothed it with sandpaper:


Then I added a wet layer of GS/milliput mix to the back of it and pressed the Witch Elf arm with nubbin-of-shield into it, added good old Kroot shoulder armour to the shield arm to hide the crappy join, added a short-sword and some butt-armour made from chopping down Melusai waist-armour, finally scribed a rim into the shield and after a lot more sanding and scraping here she is, ready for paint:









Thanks for looking!

Great model. The shield, while simple looking, is a slick bit of crafting. The helm and crest are perfect, and really solidify the idea for the character along with the weapon and shield.

... In an instant I beheld uprisen
At once three hellish furies stain'd with blood:
in limb and motion feminine they seem'd;
Around them greenest hydras twisting roll'd
Their volumes; adders and cerastes crept
Instead of hair, and their fierce temples bound...

...Turn thyself round, and keep
Thy count'nance hid; for if the Gorgon dire
Be shown, and thou shouldst view it, thy return
Upwards would be for ever lost.

Dante's Inferno: Canto 9



Started the Medusa build in June 2016 apparently: Something Wicked This Way Comes...

She lingered in the 'to-do' pile for many, many months, occasionally having a bit added here and there, or a bit removed, or something sculpted - then torn off and redone.

I will give her this - she's persistent; when I started her I really had no idea where she was going to fit into my convoluted fluff.

Then this image came along:

Medusa - Unknown Artist

Add to this the emerging concept of the Night Witches and a way ahead for her construction revealed itself, and - just as important - a place for her in my story line.

And so here's Medusa:



Her torso, head, left arm, shoulder armour and most of her right arm are from the Bloodwrack Medusa.



I repositioned some of the smaller snakes, and then added the larger serpents that were cut from the Bloodwrack Medusa's weird snake-body and over many attempts were pinned, glued, re-glued, broken off, cursed at - one was even eaten by my cat! - re-pinned, re-glued and finally smoother over with milliput paste to get them to stay in position.



The legs are from either Dark Elf Witches or Dark Eldar, can't remember - probably one from each! The armoured waistband is from the ubiquitous donor Melusai kit - love that kit!


The skirt tails are two ribbon-thingys cut from Harlequin dancer legs, pinned and glued in under the waist armour



The right hand is again from a Dark Eldar or Dark Elf kit, with a brass wrist guard to hide and strengthen the join under it - original intention was to sculpt a copy of the Bloodwrack vambraces but in the spirit of  my new 'get on with it' modelling philosophy, I'll just leave it as is... probably.

The lower half of the spear is from probably an old Dark Elf kit and the lower bit being from the Skitarii kit - another stellar donor kit! The upper staff is brass tube, with a pin glued into the spear head from the ancient High Elf Prince and Noble kit - hopefully it helps sell the Greek mythology vibe these Night Witches seem to have going, anyway.

Thanks for looking!
