Inquisitor Lorr

At the beginning of March 2005 on the blog I mentioned that GW were releasing a limited edition Witch Hunter model that would only be sold in the stores on the 2nd and 3rd April.

Inquisitor Lorr BlisterWell I didn’t think I was going to get one, but I was on my way over to Simon’s for a game of Space Hulk and stopped off at the GW store and picked one up.

It is a very nice model and is based on the Witch Hunter model that is available in the boxed set, but has a different weapon (plasma pistol) and is pointing rather than holding a sword. Personally I think it is a better model.

Rules can be found in White Dwarf #304 for this model. Now I think I might still have that, but would need to look for it… wonder if they are available online somewhere?

Here is the ‘Eavy Metal painted version of the model.

After much thought (well two and a half years) I decided that I would put together the model and paint it. It was another few years before I gave the model a basecoat of Desert Yellow.

Since then I put the model of Inquisitor Lorr aside for a few years, but when looking for something else I found him, I thought I might try and finish him off.

I will first touch up his base coat, I did use Desert Yellow, which is no longer available, so I checked the conversion chart and used Tallarn Sand instead, which is a pretty good match.

Corvus Blackstar

This Corvus Blackstar was in the displays at Warhammer World.

Far, far more advanced than the other Imperial craft which it resembles, the Corvus Blackstar is truly worthy of ferrying a Deathwatch Kill Team to their brutal mission. Optimised for alien hunting, surprisingly agile, its heavy weapons scream death from the skies as it descends toward its mission-critical targets. Halo-launchers fan out and blur the Corvus Blackstar’s outline as the twin hatches slam open, pouring out its cargo of specialist Deathwatch from within to charge directly into the fray.

Thinking that this might make a nice transport for my Inquisitorial Stormtroopers.

Here are some photographs of my Inquisitorial Stormtroopers. They are part of my Daemonhunters army for Warhammer 40K.

They have been photographed on a piece of scenery I built specially for taking photographs.

I decided when painting up my Inquisitorial Stormtroopers, to use the Cadian Kasrkin for them.

I did decide when thinking about a paint scheme, to not use the accepted traditional look for the Inquisitorial Stormtroopers and go with a desert theme.

Check out how these models were painted in the workbench feature on them.

Now that’s better…

In a previous post I talked about the problems I had had with the Citadel Spray Gun in undercoating a Land Raider.

You can see in this close-up how the thinned paint ran from the flat surface. Was not at all impressed.

So I tried again and got a much better result as you can see from the following photographs. Nice smooth finish.

Though this is a Grey Knights Land Raider, I decided early on with this force that the majority of the armoured vehicles would be a sandy desert colour. I used Citadel Foundation Paint, Tausept Ochre as the basecoat.

Sometimes you get it wrong…

I had started to paint the basecoat of my Grey Knights Land Raider using a normal brush. I decided that I would try using Citadel’s spray gun to base coat the rest of the Land Raider. However due to thinning the paint too much I didn’t get the result I hoped for. As you can see it didn’t work out too well.

From this angle it looks better, but’s that only because this was the area I had originally done part of the basecoat of by brush.

Think it’s time to get a proper airbrush with a proper compressor. However give the GW Spray Gun its due, it got me thinking about airbrushing over just brush painting.

Having given the Land Raider a black undercoat I started the basecoat.
