Little guy, Big Gun

Here's another Inquisitor from my old Demonhunters army.  Just like the previous piece, I sculpted the Psycannon out of sculpey.

Brown stuff for purity seals, a little plasticard, and ready for painting!

Here's the painted version!

The previous Inquisitor Lord was in terminator armor.  This was a regular Inquisitor that was part of a secondary retinue.

They did make great firebases back in the day... especially with the right retinue members.

Servo skulls!

My first Inquisitor

This will always be one of my favorite miniatures.  It was also one of the first elaborate conversions I had done.

It involved incorporating a Confrontation miniature with some Games Workshop bitz, and lots of little scratch built pieces.  The primary element was the psycannon that I made out of the grey sculpey, which is stronger and keeps an edge.

There was even a bit of plasticard and green stuff.  I used brown stuff on the purity seals so that they could have a more dramatic position... flowing in the breeze.

As you can see, this character had wracked up quite a few trophies!

And now for some color images of the painted piece.  This Inquisitor Lord eventually had an entire story written for him, as well as a few campaigns in which he was a central character.

As you can see, Slaneesh marines were the primary target of his wrath... and his trusty psycannon!

In his honor, I painted this at a Games Day.  It actually won an award for best artwork.  One of three awards (Stikki Wikkit also has one).

I think most of you have already seen all the finished retinue figures... but not these WIP images.  So, I have prepared a series of posts that will combine the finished and in progress photos!
