En route to completion !

Back online, with more resolve and motivation.

Inquisitor Jacobus Sprenger

A newcomer to the project.


On the air

More of me on the interwebs.


An end and a start

So it's been a long time since nothing happened here. Eventhough life went on, I changed work, moved home to a new city, moved in with a GF.

I concider myself very lucky and when I look back to last few months, I realise that life is not so much a lemon giver.

Anyway, on with the hobby.

I registered to the ETL IV on B&C to get and keep me motivated. I lowered my pretentions and only whished to enter with a single inquisitor and warband.

Now that I think I am able to manage my VPS server, I'll close this blog in favor of this new one :


There, for the few of you that read this blog, I'll post everything related to my progress in this warm contest.

See you overthere then !


Ordo Blogus

Well, so as to make sure I'm going to finish all that I have to assemble/paint, I made myself more visible to the community.

I opened some P & M blogs on some of the main boards (at least for me) :



I also changed the 'name' of my project and switch it to "Inquisitorial Escort - The Bleaux Controversy" because I have a small fluff in mind that when the day comes, I'll share here.


Step 1 : Winter is coming - the final result

After watching a bunch of videos thanks to DAKKA and WARSEER advisers, I realised a couple of things : there is the GW fur and the other furs. There is the "long thin S method" and the "V shape style". So I went for the "other GW S & V school"...  ;)

I feel relieved that the fur is looking better, even though I had to keep the previous "side pelts". So as to stop brainstorming at work on how should I sculpt my Sprenger's pelt, I'll leave it as is.

Once again, thank you very much everyone for your support and tips !

Here are the results (*drumroll*)

Once cured, I'll give the borders a bite so as to make it more, erh, edge ...


Step 1 : Winter is coming

I had a try at making some GS fur.

I am, well, torn apart between thinking it looks good and it looks awkward. Let me read your thoughts on this please :

I eventually cut it in two, as you may notice.

The bottom right part will be added some claws

What do you think ? I think it could be improved but I don't know in what ways ...

Please let me know your C&C  :)


Step 1 : quick update

A little update on this slow pace project.

Inquisitor Dvorak got more than just a plain rejuvenat treat, he simply changed face.

As for inquisitor Sprenger, he got a bit of a facelift too :

His left arm will not be left as such, I plan on adding a kind of pelt to hide the gap of his armpit. And his back will be draped in a cloak. I am really new to GS manipulation so I'll follow a few tuts here and there ...

If you stop by this post, I will be glad to read your comments. I know I have a long way to go to achieve what I have in mind and I know I can do it thanks to your thoughts on this :)


Back again, part 4734 ...

So I've been away for more than a year and it's been full of activities. New GF, back on Aion, GF moving at my flat, new hobby impulse thanks to GF, etc ... All in all, she made me come back !

Now I am highly motived and under fierce adrenaline rush. I bought new stuff and realised that I do need some kind of plan to get things organised. I discovered a small PC program that will help me cut my project into smaller pieces. Here it is : http://www.warhammer-forum.com/index.php?showtopic=139155

It allows for a given amount of points to split the completion of your army into several sessions. Here, and according to the brand new Codex : Inquisition, I roughly have 900 points of pure inquisitorial force.

Here is how I plan the on-going process of assembling and painting my inquisitorial escort.
Steps are :
  1. Purchase
  2. Conversion
  3. Basecoat
  4. Paint job
  5. Basing

Each session should (hopefully) last 1 month ...

All in all, a lot of work to come so got to go to work on that !


Some old stuff and new stuff

I go fed up with the drilling and torturing with my ogryns so I took care of some of Dvorak's henchmen. Just a temporary base to allow priming and think on a unity for the bases. So are available as henchmen for my Inquisitor :

  • 3 FW cervo-skulls
  • 1 cherubim
  • 3 priests
  • 5 Ogryns that count as either shooting or CC warriors
  • 2 psykers
I'll post pictures of the host sooner or later but that makes a lot of people.

I think my inquisitor's front is finished, I now need to think about the back ... A backpack ? Fur colar ? Banner pole ? I have yet to decide ... I am also willing to discover molds and everything around em. The lower edge of Dvorak's robes would need some gothic written words and such, for freehanding seems a bit out of reach for me.

And to move around this mob, there is no such things as a Land Raider.

A long time ago I bought a Crusader but eventually decided  to let it as a simple ordinary Land Raider. I plan to make it look like the Land Raider Maximus and plan to order a few bitz of Sanctum Imperialis and WFB Empire Hurricanum.

Well, that gives a lot of time to get set. I'd like to try freehanding on it, but I first need to come with a clear view of how to customize it.

So, plenty of things to do. Maybe at least four or five other years ;)


Ogryns - Part III

So I got to watch Starship Troopers Invasion and was like, waow !

A kind of way I see it ;)

For those who did not watch it, here is a trailer :

And therefore I chose to make the lower part of my Ogryns body like the marines'.

I thinks it will fit more a GWish spirit rather than a Mangaesque feel. I hope to get moving on them by this weekend.


My tools

As years go by, I tend to acquire more and more tools. Here is a few of my precious tools that I use everytime I come back to the Hobby.

A few carving tools. A classic for GS sculping.

What we call a third hand in French. No need for descriptions on its use here.

 A smallscale vise for my heavy drilling.

And my Ogryns torturer, my mini driller.

Of course there are a few other things which are just custom made or use as suched but they are not relevant here.

So, this is it. I need to pace up on my Ogryns but unfortunately, BF3 is blocking the way ...


Ogryns - Part II

Now is the time to go on with the drilling.

A second Ogryn is under heavy polishing.

I am also trying to figure out how to make their heavy bolters. It's going smoothly but I'll try to make a manga-like drum feeder.

Stay tuned, I off on holidays for week, there surely will be more to come :)
