Now I told some time ago that we had an Inquisimunda project coming. It would very long and difficult to explain everything we are working on right now so let's just talk about the curent part of the project; For the first scenario and in order to get everyone aboard quietly we decided anyone should create a character ( inquisitor or not) with 300 pts.
I personnaly chose to create an inquisitor: Balek Karad
My inquisitor is a Recongretionnist Radical Xanthite. In a word he thinks the Imperium is definitely rotten from the inside and anything should be brought down in order to start fresh and "pure". He also thinks there's no problem with using fire to fight fire; using chaos artifacts against chaos . I also chose that he would chose Malal artifacts
He's a human (20pts), interrogator (90pts).
_photo contacts ( 10pts).
_open medium armor (20pts).
_master crafted bolt pistol ( 20+10pts).
We also agreed that, as a champion, all of our character for that scenario should benefit from all advancements using the experience advance tables (9 caracteristics improvements/abilities).
+1 WS, +1 T, +2 W, +1 I and 1 A.
Along with abilities Parry,Evade and Jump Back (61XP).
I also decided, as aresult of his past (which I still have to write) to buy the Killer Réputation ( +20pts, 81 XP)
Et now his demon weapon; Dreadaxe ; it's a power axe (40pts) with the powers Vampiric (25pts), Hunger (15 pts) and Hunholy Speed (20pts).
Total of 300 pts with the following caracteristics.
M: 4 WS: 5 BS: 5 S: 3 T:4 W:3 I: 5 A:2 Ld:8
The less young among you might recognize (or not) that this inquisitor is no other than a 40k version of the old 80's WHFB character Kaleb Daark, my mascot character for nearly 15 years (hence my pseudo).
For those of you that aren't familiar with either Malal or Kaleb Daark go check>this page<
Now let's build him.
I had a very hard time to find a suitable base for this convertion. But I finally settled with this
For the general pose I thought of something smuggy like this
Here's a list of the bits I used
_ Head : Dark Eldar Raider pilot with WHFB Banshee hairs.
_ Arms : one Cadian arm with grenade and a Baneblade pilot's with laspistol. Plus some WHFB Empire militia arms for the spiky armbraces and an armoured armof the same box for the open hand.
_ Legs : IG tank, pilot's.
_ Shoulder pad: WHFB marauder skull pad.
_Backpack : upper part of the Forge World Cadian hostile environnement torso. Plus Dragonforge's 0.45 powercable.
_Weapon : on that matter I had multiple options ( including canibalising an old original Kaleb Daark figure) but , for the moment, I went for tha WHFB Chaos Knights pickaxe. And for the knob I took the down part of the bone-weapon of a WHFB Zombies.
_ Accessories : pouch with parchment, book and closed altar from the Grey Knights, Dark Angel pistol holster,Sanguinary Guard dagger and an Inquisition Icon from Cherubael (Inquisitor 54mm)
Here he is.
This is no award winning material but I like the way it looks
and he got painted
Still no awrd winning material but ....
Now the leader's done..... What about a retinue?
Although I won't be needing them for a while I couldn't resist to go with it!
Note these are WIPs, I stil
A pair of Afriel Strain twins/clones
The main concept of this warband is the mirror effect. I tried
A pair of SM scout legs and shotguns, Cadian torsos and arms, Baneblade's artificier shoulder pads and pilot's arm , SM pouches and Catachans backpacks.
I have nickname'em Tomax and Xamot (understands who can
Bases are missing for the moment and I'm thinking of changing their heads too, not sure about the maxmini ones.
There's also a sniper.
No fuss there it's simply a Gaunt's Ghosts Mad Larkin figurine. No pics for the moment since it's only black primed.
Sons of Malice Space Marine.
I went true scale with this one and must confess I completely stole the idea from Migsula.
I used Tartaros legs, SMC helmet, Khorne berserker torso (enlarged), SM and SMC arms, the hand of a Forge World heresy tank pilot, SMC raptor chainsword, SM and SMC terminator shoulder pads and a skull.
