In a previous post I suggested I may try to put together a small warband to represent Jaq Draco and his retinue. Ian Watson did an excellent job on these baroque grimdark novels about the adventures of Inquisitor Draco. I think it was the first Inquisition novel to come out of the Black Library.
After some searching I found this forum post full of ideas. I hunted up a couple models on eBay and waited for them to arrive.
The goateed head of Scout Sgt. Telion and the body of this generic inquisitor are perfect for Inquisitor Draco, plus I never liked the mask on this model. The Lhamaean will make a suitable Melindi, and of course Grimm the Squat. I still need to find a navigator, or a suitable model to convert as such.
Scout Sgt. Telion and a Dark Eldar lhamaean arrived and I got to work while watching the new season of House of Cards (Kevin Spacey is fucking ruthless). A bit of clipping and a lot of careful grinding got the inquisitor model ready for the head swap, The lhamaean weapons were easily clipped and replaced with a power sword from Mad Robot Miniatures. The laspistol is from the same source, but only a place holder for now. I'll also have to trim up off a bit of the xenos detail and cover more with some careful greenstuff work, but she should make for the elegant courtesan described in Watson's novels. I'm on the fence about replacing Grimm's old school lasgun with a boltgun.
In other news I got my Armoured Containers set all trimmed and assembled. Now they go into a box with all the rest of my plastic scatter terrain. Watch for a post detailing the contents and my plans for it.
