Showdown at Cephiivytra

A few weeks ago I met up with a few likeminded hobbyists at Warhammer World in Nottingham to partake in a truly spectacular Inq28 game. 

The scenario took place on the war torn world of Cephiivytra, and revolved around a mysterious dark eldar artifact pitting radical and puritan factions of the Holy Inquisition against the eclectic forces of the Mechanicvm

Batting for the radicals were my Inquisitor Carax who joined up with Migsulas heretical Inquisitor Silas. Tammy (Tears of Envy) and PDH commanded the puritans while Tim (Tears of Istvaan) and John Blanche represented the Mechanicvm. Neil 101 also came along throwing in some of his truly amazing constructs to the mix. 

+Johns astounding board - painted specifically for the occasion+

+Neils completely bizarre constructs+

+Johns mechanicvm+




+Johns giant arco eviserator+

+PDHs mechanicvm altar and servitor NPC+


+Johns arco-tank+

+Migsulas gruesome deamonhost+

+Carax and friends line up for the camera+

+Inquisitor Silas and retuine advances+


+Tims amazing mechanicvm centaurs+




+PDH's mechanicvm market+

+´splosions!+


+The macguffin of the scenario - a strange dark eldar soultrap coveted by Carax+


This is not meant to bea battle report - I just want to show some inspirational pictures of the event - but when the dust had settled the artifact remained in the hands of the Mechanicvm, Carax had found himself in the custody of the agents of the Inquisition, while Silas managed to sneak away. 

You can find more pics from the event on my co-conspirator Migsulas blog "Legion of Plastic":

    1. It was a truly spectacular sight. I think we all had trouble focusing on the actual gane with all the incredible minis on display...

  2. So awesome! For me, the atmosphere is the most important part- and this is as atmospheric as it gets.

    Say, who is the author of the pair of mechanical hippocentaur lancers?

  3. Utterly, utterly awesome. I've seen maybe a half-dozen posts about this game, and I keep coming back. It's just so beautiful.

    I desperately want to know how JB painted that board. Nobody does grime like he does, and that dank, puddly wash effect is stunning.

  6. Hi and thank you to show us this very nice stuff and especialy the one fron John Blanche. I'm very interested by Inq28 and i would like to know the rules you used to play. Is it just Inquisitor rules with 28mm miniatures or another one ?

    1. Sorry for the confusion - we didn't actually play inq28, which as you say is Inquisitor rules only with 28 mm models. Rather we played inquisimunda which is basically Necromunda with a few tweaks. For rules just use google - the necromunda rules are available as a free pdf.

  7. oh just Necromunda rules, perfect i've got them, so another question : how do you build your warband ? Do you use army list or not ? Sorry for all the questions but i'm very interested by this game and if you have a link or something that could help me to start a warband i will be pleased :) ! Thank you again.

    1. As John says further down were not sticklers for rules and just sort of make it up as we go along. However you can find a collection of rules here: http://empireofghosts.blogspot.se/p/inquisimunda-resources.html?m=1

  9. gosh dont these look good against black grounds - boards painted with no finesse just big pots of premixed colour - outdoors, splash, hot sun, showers - dry brush with an ochre colour, again very fast - spray seal more showers strange effects due to weather - worked fast because not a great deal of available time and so much goes into the miniatures - no lists for game just turn up with six but i saw nobody counting - peter, tim, migs know enough necro rules to help the others - throw in anarchy, friendship, keeping the focus on narrative, fun, and most of all the models themselves - but each of us have years of experience and some being professional artists gives confidence in just getting stuck in .......
