Ordo Malleus Inquisitor Conversion

This is something I've been working on on and off for past couple of months. It's an Ordo Malleus Inquisitor for the all Inquisition Grey Knights army I'm planning on doing:

This is easily the most ambitious sculpting I've ever attempted and I've learnt alot about doing it in the process. I'm pleased with the result, and I hope to do a decent paint job on it.

The conversion is based on a WFB Chaos Warrior, with a leg swap to give him a more power armoured look. The head is taken from the Space Marine commander box. The remainder was endless green stuff work.

Two major lessons I learnt from this project:

1- Only ever work on a small part of the model at a time, don't be tempted to do big swathes of it at once or you'll spoil what you've just done.
2- You always need less green stuff that you think you need. Some of the amounts I ended up working with on this model were minuscule.

Hobby Resolutions

It's that time of year again, where I can review what I did (or didn't) get done in the hobby year 2011.

1- Buy less models, and paint the ones I've got -FAILED
2- Finish my Witch Hunters to the 1500 point list I've written (I technically have more than 1500 points worth) - FAILED
3- Finish my Ogre army - FAILED
4- Play some Malifaux - DONE
5- Play 25 games of either 40K or Fantasy - FAILED
6- Get some work done on my 40K Chaos Daemons army - FAILED

So in all in all not that great a result. Must try harder.

So for 2012, I am resolving to:

1- Get Witch Hunters to 1500 points
2- Get Inquisition army to 1500 points
3- Play more games this year than last year
4- Play Blood Bowl on the table top, paint my BB team
5- Play another game of Apocalypse
