Inquisitor Lord WIP

Here's a shot of my Coteaz based Inquisitor conversion:




As I already mentioned in a previous post, he fully magentized with 6 different weapon options.

I've done some GS work on the magnetized arms so they fit a bit closer to the body when they're magnetized together. I've also tried to GS the add-on arms so the armour blends a bit closer to the original arm. This is WIP still.

The green stuff work on the face was challenging, and I really learnt alot from Klaus over at the DEI GRECI blog, who is the daddy when it comes to green stuff. Check out his post here for tips. The main things I've learnt about GS are:

1) Look at what you need to green stuff, get the green stuff ready, and then halve it. I always over-estimate what I need and let it go on too thick.
2) Do a bit and let it dry, otherwise you ruin something you've already done. I worked on this model whilst doing my Nurgle sorcerer so one could be drying whilst the other was being worked on. This is a lesson I've had to learn the hard way on many occasions.
3) Never buy cheap, crappy GS, it ends up lumpy even when you cut the middle out. Trust me, I know I've got another 24" of the stuff.


The rest of the retinue is still WIP. I've got a Gun Servitor magnetized and based, and a sage. I've still got to convert up a torturer for the retinue so thats next.

Looks solid. Is he supposed to be an inquisitor for your DA army?

The face looks really good. I love the big monocle over his eye.

The GS on his arm needs smoothed out, but other than that, great job.

@Cawshis Clay

He's an Inquisitor for my WH, but as you might have guessed, he's got DA bitz on him.

@Wienas

Yes, the arm is still WIP at the moment. Having only ever GS Nurgle stuff before, smooth GS is a bit of a different challenge :)
