Watch where you swing those things

Time for another review of the retinue minis.  The Inquisitor and servo skull were original figures done bak in 2008, I believe.  The Psycannon was made from sculpey.

The Arco-Flagellants (or Arco-Flatuents as I lied to call them) were made for Adepticon 2012.

I remember them doing some damage in a few games.  Most of the time, however, they just got shot by Space Wolves missile launchers.

At least I got to use the servo skulls in the 2012 tournament.  I forget what it is that they do in the Grey Knights book, but I had 3 of them, which was enough to cover the whole table.

It is a bummer that in the world of 5th edition, none of this can even hope to stand up to plastic titans and fleets of flying stuff. :-(

Anyway, I think I may just set up some of my own battles between the Dark Eldar and the old fashioned Inquisitor list.  Besides, innocence proves nothing!!!!!  Every day is a great day for an Exterminatus.  Let's play two...


  1. Great work as usual James. Is there any disadvantage from a gaming point of view to having your minis standing up on your higher bases? I'm more of a painter than a gamer but just curious to know if it having your models elevated presents any line of sight issues and makes them easier to shoot.

    1. Thanks! That has only happened at tournaments once in a while, where terrain is minimal, if non-existent. It's never an issue on my own terrain, or most other sets...
