Ashes of Faith - Inquisition Kill Team

I was excited and slightly dismayed to see that Games Workshop released an Inquisition Kill Team in the Ashes of Faith box set in May 2023. Excited because I love the Inquisition range- I've been a major fan since the 90s with the Slaves to Darkness rulebook.

I was also dismayed, because I've been slogging along collecting and painting all the 28mm Inquisition models that have been released... and I'd just finished all of the henchmen and Inquisitors right before new release- a two and a half year project.

I was lucky to snag two copies of the box set so that I could complete all of the variants. As with many GW kits these days, a base model can be used to make two or more variants... in one particular annoying case, the only variant for the auto-savant was a barely visible face swap.

Anyway, after chipping away on them since May, here's the full set of Inquisition from the Ashes of Faith box set.

Atomic Angels - Robot - RoboDog - Jane Hunter - Hydra Miniatures

I neglected to post several miniatures I painted for Hydra several months ago, here's a post to make up for that.

The Festival of Saint Christphorus - Compiled PDF

Last year I posted a slightly insane "Twelve Days of Christophorus" narrative focusing on the "Gretch" tradition of Ophatran Secundus.

A frequent request was to compile it together into a PDF, which I managed to do. I posted it up on DriveThruRPG as a free download.

Lots of photographs of Imperial citizenry and how I imagine a functioning out-of-the-way Imperial planet might be, without a looming invasion at all times.

PDF available here:

Daemonic Servo-Skulls

Continuing along with the monthly servo-skull challenge for "ServoskullSaturday", I now have three servos based on daemon and beastman skulls from the GW Skulls kit.

Trying to decide how to tackle the last, Slaanesh.

Neptonians - Khurasan Miniatures Retro Space Aliens

I recently completed a series of miniatures for Khurasan, who collaborated with Hydra Miniatures on a range of space aliens called the "Neptonians". They are intended to be part of the Hydra Miniatures Retroverse and should have rules for the Retro Raygun game by Hydra.

Anyway, here they are!

Turnip 28 - Buildings - Bogs - Laundry - Cityscape

For a few years now I have tried to knock out a large terrain project over the summer, with the intention to finish it prior to the start of school. For a variety of reasons I missed the deadlines I'd set myself... but better late than never!

The project is four buildings, a city backdrop, some bogs, and a few 3D printed items. The buildings are pretty old school- foamboard (foamcore), balsa wood, and cereal box cardboard for shingles. There are other miscellaneous items from Hirst Arts molds and 3d printed items scattered around.

The backdrop is made from foamcore and is part 3D, part illusionistically painted.

The 'Gatehouse' is a close copy of an illustration by 'Black Crab Art' for the Turnip28 game.

Bogs are simple MDF board with built up borders (latex caulk and wall filler compound). The gloss is three layers of gloss polyurethane.

The Laundry and Water Pump are from Infinite Dimensions and are 3D prints. The root ox is also printed, its from the Turnip28 Patreon.
