Warped minds

I decided to gather together a collection of my Demonhunter retinue figures for some group shots.  This first group spans about 5 years... from my first retinue minis in 4th Edition to Adepticon 2012.

The Inquisitor was a conversion I did back in '07, scratch sculpting the psycannon and adding some purity seals (the original was an extra mini in the Black Reach box set, I think).

I added these Demonhosts at Adepticon, because I never got to use them back in the day.  It was a little easier to squeeze them in with the new book.  They were quite useless, sadly.

I was not surprised by that, but it was something I had hoped could give someone a surprise!

Here's another set of Psykers.  The guy in the back was one of the originals.  You can see the basing system that I used to avoid confusion when it came to what was in the retinue.

The others were added along the way, with the guy in front joining the 2012 version.

I still have many more unpainted retinue figures that may have to be saved for the Dark Heresy RPG game... if I ever get to run that.

Next up... Servitors!!!  With guns.

Metal and plastic... and brush protectors.

One more squad of I.G., Demonhunter style.

As I mentioned, there were some metal figures splashed into the various units in the form of special weapons and sergeants, like this guy.

Then there were fun figures like this one, where I manufactured a Meltagun out of a grenade launcher and a plastic brush protector!  Yes, indeed.  I finished it off with some green stuff tubes.

The glowing conduits were a blast to paint, and I am looking forward to doing more of that when the new army is done!

Here's another one of those conversions that started out as a grenade launcher.  More green stuff, with a few purity seals as well to hide the flamer tanks a bit!

I didn't have the fluorescent paints at the time when I did these, so that is something else to look forward to!!

And for the unit as a whole.

The basing style was like the previous squads, with the sergeant getting special treatment on a marble/tile base.
