“Joshan’s actions are at the very least unorthodox, and are at most on the borders of outright heresy. He walks in the twilight at the edges of our known galaxy and has collected about him a menagerie of mutants, eccentrics and even aliens. He is but a few steps away from moving beyond the edicts of the Emperor’s Holy Inquisition, and is for that reason that I must judge him to be ‘observed’.”
– Lord Inquisitor Enriko Ranz (Ordo Xenos)
And I am back. Reports of my being abducted by the Inquisition and locked away in a vault on Terra, have been greatly exaggerated. Not only that, but I bring you my new Inquisitor, Thor Joshan. Also, he has been snapped with my brand new camera which I’m still figuring out and getting used to but nevertheless, these snaps are still a vast improvement on those previously taken with my iPhone.
Thor Joshan isn’t exactly a rogue inquisitor, but he’s not in the Ordo’s good books either. He has a history of committing questionable actions and behaviour, and his retinue is composed of elements that don’t meet the Inquisition’s strictest standards. But more on that fluff later.
I took the Empire Witch Hunter from the fantasy game and cut his very fancy hat and gruff looking head off, replacing it with a green stuff hood and half the head of a space marine. I added some brass to the big sword and an Inquisitorial talisman to his uniform. To further bring him into the grimdark, I’ve got him standing on a rusting rhino front and there’s a servo skull floating there too (though it refused to get into focus). Oh, and I topped off his sword with a big skull because, well, y’know, …skulls.
I’m really happy with this guy and he makes a great leader for my small retinue, and my first venture into INQ28. Speaking of the retinue, now I’ve got this fancy new camera, there may well be a few new pictures of them on the way too. But anyway, it’s good to be back. This is the first thing I’ve painted in a very long time, but I’m happy to say I’ve got the painting bug again. Onwards!
