Ages ago, before epochs were invented, I was handed “Brewhouse Bash” from White Dwarf 223 (I think) and the second edition Eldar codex. I was hooked. Then I learned about Space Wolves and Dark Angels, and later the Inquisition, and discovered that being a financially responsible person and wargaming just didn’t work! Over the next little while I’ll be posting about my escapades into creating kill teams and 3D models for stories to be based upon. Photos will be sporadic, but I’ll do my best to show you what I’m working on! I sculpt and build individual models and retinues based in the venerable RPG Inquisitor story world, in both 54mm and, more recently, Inq28.
With the advent of Shadow War: Armageddon, I am breaking my wallet open again and finagling a couple of kill teams. I’m borrowing my Gorkamorka Ork mob for one (my spanner boys actually have spanners! Mind you, they’ll probably end up as yoofs), and resurrecting bits of my Space Marine collection to make a scout kill team: two classic metal snipers (and their Catachan sniper little brother – not sure what I’ll do with him), two shotguns (one of my most favourite models in the entire range), a melee bloke, and Sgt. Naaman from the Dark Angels. I’m planning on getting Vet. Sgt. Telion as well, but I have a preference for metal minis, and Telion in metal costs as much as a Codex. *Sigh* I also have a small horde of Eldar (new plastic Dire Avengers with 2nd Ed shuriken catapaults, yay!) that I can fool around with.
I’m not all that chuffed with painting minis, and over the last 20 years my eyesight has gotten worse and my hands shake. Hopefully they’ll both calm down soon! My current project is an Ordo Malleus bloke, Inquisitor Allon _(insert surname here)__. Gold armour, an incinerator, warding staff, storm bolter with scope, you know. An open, warm, inspirational character who happens to count as a Justicar in SW:A!
If you have an idea for a surname for this fellow, be sure to comment!
Also if you have metal Space Marine Scouts with bolters and heavy weapons to part with. The new plastics are awful.
With good fortune, more soon,
