Still working on the Hellhound, so I figured I’d post another vehicle I did about a year ago to compare any improvements to technique I’ve made. Especially with fine details such as writing) This one is a Basilisk Artillery Canon, one thing I enjoy with some of the IG vehicles is the ability they give you to customize and build a bit of a scene within the crew compartments. #warhammer40k#imperialguard#astramilitarum#astramilitarum40k#basilisk#paintingwarhammer
My hobby goal for the upcoming days is to finish these bad boys. I have a hard time settling on the right ”level”. I can’t go beneath what I would be ok to put down on the table, but at the same time I’ll be painting loads of them. Which is a good thing, I love these miniatures. But I want to play with them too...:)
I was approached recently by a guy, who’d seen some of my models I’d posted on my gaming club’s FB Page, asking me to paint some minis for him. This came as a massive surprise as I consider myself to be a bottom-end of intermediate painter. That said I was happy to take on the commission, I’ve had a real itch to paint some Astra Militarum recently. So next up on the painting desk will be a squad of infantry and a Chimera for them to ride in. Ooh rah! #warhammer40k#warhammer#paintingwarhammer#astramilitarum#imperialguard#cadia#cadian
Acolytes - The Pardoner
Over the centuries Inquisitor Lisowski’s retinue has grown and shrank as various servants of the emperor are drawn to his banner only to inevitably fall on the field of battle. One of the more recent additions is the ‘The Pardoner’. As the acting executioner of Lisowski’s war party the mute Pardoner dispenses justice upon those judged beyond redemption by the Inquisitor, a role he appears to take neither pleasure nor pain in; although how one could infer any emotion from a man clad head to toe in armour and a mask is anyone’s guess. The anonymity of his attire is no mishap of chance however, and the covering of his flesh is a necessity to preserve his true profession – Lisowski’s sin eater.
Acolytes - The Hermit
The longest serving of Lisowski's acolytes, the Hermit is the defacto right hand of the Inquisitor and oversees many of the day to day operations of the war party.
Clad in armour of boiled leather and plate over a faded hooded tunic he is neither a memorable or imposing figure at court, a fact that no doubt gave rise to his imposed moniker. However, on the battlefield his whispered voice is transformed into the bellowing scream of a zealot. With eyes of burning hatred he engages the enemies of man at every possible opportunity; forgoing ranged weapons in favour of taking them in hand to hand combat where no quarter is given or asked.
