It's been a while. It's time I came back to the place where I first began to explore and really learn about this magnificent hobby. So, new year and new thread and all that.

I'm working on new ideas, which I'll share as they ripen. In the meantime, here's a couple of recent work in progress shots while I rediscover my AmmoBunker legs.

Been following your work on Instagram and it's nice to hear that you'll be posting back on here again so welcome back!

Excellent models by the way. Easily my favourite baby-headed chimera yet.

They're looking great! Your stuff is always amazing but maybe this year you should set yourself some challenges and try and get out of your comfort zone a bit? In other words, do something that isn't predominantly black :)

@AceOfBlades Thanks. It feels good to be back here. This is the first place I ever shared any of my minis and I want to support this forum again.

@Khordal Cheers. I havenít fully decided on her background yet. Sheís not an inquisitor, but Iím not yet sure what she is. I often seem to make minis that I think will look good, but then struggle to decide what it is that Iíve made.

@plessiez Haha, fair point. I canít see it happening soon though. Iím not a fan of brightly coloured minis. Maybe something in white one day? :)

Excellent start to the year! I like how the henchmen are quite monochromatic, makes the Inquisitor stand out more? She's great too, it's a bit of a balancing act making the base mini not look like Greyfax but still keeping all the cool stuff that makes it such a nice model (something I'm struggling with atm for my next mini for my Imperium Below project!), I think you've done a good job of it!

I can't wait to see the henchman brought to life and finished. The Inquisitor is a good un, have you changed the gs on her hair between shots? The style looks so different. Your GS work is so good.

This year we'll have to meet up and finally have a game!

That Gryffhound (maybe a Good Gryffhound!) is such a lovely bit of atmospheric work .

@Lysimachus Iím still not certain how much colour to add to the henchmen. Iíll keep them quite monochrome, but maybe a touch of orange to tie the group together.

@PDH I didnít change hair. Maybe itís just the lighting? And yes, definitely this is the year to arrange something :)

@euan cheers buddy.

From build to paint this is a really successful project. Unique and characterful, well done.

I particularly like the cherub hound, balances her really well.

The changes are very simple but they affect the entire model's character. Also as someone who also recently GS'd a 'fro I can say that it is no easy task!

Oooh, those're nice! Very good use of the checks as well on the heraldry as a unifying theme

Agreed :) there's something about checkers and heraldry that feels quintessentially classic 40k :)

Perfect warband with the perfect blend of 40k influences; sci-fi, medieval and punk. Beautiful paintjob, hope to see pics of the game.

As I've said elsewhere, the warband is looking fabulous! Afro-Inquisitrix FTW! :)
