Last night in a flurry of inspiration (which might have something to do with the Ravenor Omnibus I'm reading) I put together a whole bunch of minis and finished up the chainsaw warrior. I was going for a classic mid 90s Necromunda look for these (well, exept the cultist).

I've been feeling a bit stuck in a rut lately, and haven't had much inspiration for painting (theres some pretty funky primed builds standing around on my desk but they deserve the proper enthusiasm ) .
That said there's been a lot of playing around with bits, but not much has come of it. I might actually have reached the point where I have too many bitz... Constraints can be liberating you know.

Very work-in-progress, but the two gun matrix jump pose works pretty well methinks.
The choice of head was inspired by Migsulas latest female inquisitor - with the top knot removed she actually has the same bob hairdo as Uhura in the series...

Well, with Bones finished it was time to get to grips with the main man himself in this little project I'd like to call "Rogue Trek 40.000". Let me introduce Rogue Trader Captain Tiberius Kirke:
Tiberius is a rather dashing Rogue Trader on a fifty year mission to explore strange new worlds ( putting them under the Imperiums rule ) and to seek out new life and new civilisations ( sometimes not destroing them! ). Aboard his mighty cruiser "Inceptum" he, and his trusty crew, boldly goes where no man has gone before.
Though in many ways an exemplary servant of the Imperium, Tiberius is under investigation from the Ordo Xenos for a string of rather sordid affairs with xenos females.
On away missions he often brings along a few anonymous crewmen.
They have a tendency not to come back in one piece.
Here's a mock up of crewman no.6:
|"Inceptus - you're breaking up. What's that you say? A giant monster behind me?"|
In other news - I've also managed to get my hands on a pot of Agrellan Earth - Citadels new crackly paint. It works rather well I must say and adds a lot of detail to a base. With a drybrush and a wash or two you can get some really interesting results. Here's a testbase:

Well, that was quick!
I like how this guy turned out - he's got a very puritan air, but the hunched posture and slightly off proportions hint at mutation.
He shall be known as "Thunder" as an homage to a character from a swedish radio show that you've probably never heard of.

Huzza! Two new inquisitorial retuine members join the ranks.

I took a break from the truscale marines that's been my main focus the past months - wanted to do something completely different...

Oh yeah. I listened to Manowar as a kid. Wanna make something of it?
Here's Iron Father Theremine in a more-or-less finished state:

Finally some real progress on the Iron Hand marine:
I think he's imposing enough to be an Iron Father. As most of my names are nicked from music history in one way or another, I find "Iron Father Theremine" quite fitting.

Yes, I know Hamlet doesn't say those lines while holding "The Skull", but I squandered the correct quote on the last post.
Anyway - the Iron Hand conversion is nearing completion.
I have to admit I'm really, really, pleased with this conversion.
It's like a little one-model diorama...
And, although the "contemplating a skull" pose may be a rather overused cliché it works here nonetheless.
I'll add some details like rivets and a parchment or two, but apart from that it's more or less done.
Jobs a good 'un.

Here's the true scale Iron Hand I was talking about earlier:
Haven't had as much hobbytime as usual - hence the (at least for me) rather sporadic communiques...
I have had some time for hobbying though, and that's been spent on creating two new truescale Mortifactor marines ( on none other than Inq 28s Commisar Molotovs suggestion) tthat'll serve as NPC characters in a game of inquisimunda at Warhammer World this month. More on this later on.
Anyway, on to the pics - here's the first one , "Sargeant Danzig":
