Captain-Inquisitor Lazaros

"He shall have a great doom upon his brow, he shall be a witch of great power, he shall be altered in the physical form, he shall be able to talk and walk with the animals” 


Captain-Inquisitor Lazaros is the master of the Black-aarke Garm's Maw and one of the Ordo Opscuros most zealous members. Originally a hard line Thorian serving as a daemonhunter in the Ordo Malleus, he's become more and more radicalised since joining the Ordo Opscuros - a minor ordo monitoring the black ships, notorious for their incarnationist agenda. He is now for all intents and purposes a devout Horusian, plying the stars searching out wytches and psykers that could serve as a Divine Avatar. A vessel powerful enough to contain the Emperor reborn. 
Lazaros has served the Inquisition for over 300 years and at this point he's more machine than man, the few remaining organic body parts are encased in a towering exoskeleton.


















Here he is next to Quartermaster Clavius and the pilot Eliakim.

  1. Very nice color combination and the conversion itself is quite cool as well. I like the height without the usual bulk of massive marine armour. Very menacing but calm look on his face. Very yeah, as we use to say.

  2. One day I'd love the opportunity to do something like this, just too tied up with my Armies. Then again I wouldn't know where to start in being this subtle, amazing work.

    1. Thanks! Never a bad idea to do a character every once in a while - even if you´re mainly an army painter. It makes a nice change from painting blocks of infantry.

  3. Your work is so understated but continually manages to leave me with my jaw on the floor! The conversion and paint job are absolutely top notch. Fantastic work Johan

    1. Thanks Muppet! He did come together pretty much as planned. There´s of course always additional details one could have added but the deadline is in two weeks...

  6. Very nice, I like how you've managed to bring the different armour plates together with the paintjob. The last picture is especially cool, despite being a giant he still comes across as the determined mastermind controlling the group. He combines wisdom and brute strength in a way I haven't seen before and it's brilliant.

    1. Yeah - he´s very much like a marine-sized Eisenhorn. Wizened, radicalised and entirely convinced of his own righteousness.

    1. Haha! Thank you kind, sir!
      I definitely think you´re onto something there Pete. The robot might well be the coolest model I´ve built. I´ll bring it along to the Pilgrym!

  10. This is fantastic!
    The inquisitor is one of your best models in my opinion. He has a very royal and slender silhouette, but when he stands beside the regular sized humans, he sure looks like a beast.

    1. Thanks Wilhelm! He's a big boy for sure - I wanted him to be as imposing as possible. Think I nailed it!

  11. Very impressive conversion, the combination of archaic armor and cybernetics works really well on him. And that face! He looks like he is looking down on you with demeaning, condescending way.

  12. Cracking job mate, he looks fantastic! The conversion is spot on (nice work matching the Sigmarine legs to the body!), and I love the way you 'do' black... superb

  14. This guy is so cool. Probably your best model so far. top 10 at least. Wow!

  15. O my word, doesn't he look the part. Something very "Vader" about him to me...

    1. Hehe. Yeah - there's a more than a little sith in him...
