Inquisition – Hector Rex

Happy belated Canada Day.  I was camping the previous four days and enjoyed Canada Day in the Canadian Rockies.  Happy Independence Day to my neighbours in the south.  In honour of our nation’s birthdays I present to you Hector Rex, Inquisitor Lord of the Daemonhunters


I painted Hector Rex as an ally for my Grey Knights for the Games Workshop West Edmonton Nemesis painting challenge.  the painting challenge took six months to complete starting with a 500 point list and progressing to 2000 points.  Month four required participants to add in a fortification or ally.  Hector Rex was sitting on my shelf, primed, and with no purpose in life.  That has now changed.

I like to deviate from GW’s standard colours.  Hector Rex, however, I chose to go with the colour scheme that Forgeworld provided.  I haven’t painted too much red in the past so I wanted the challenge.  The sculpt is fantastic and I had a blast painting it.

I used the same grey’s that I used for the Carcharodon models.  For the gold I used three layers of Burnished Gold and for the highlight I mixed Burnished Gold with Mithril Silver.  For the red I started with Scab red, highlighted with Red Gore and added a final highlight of Blood Red.  The base is from Fantascape’s Gothic Ruins line.  I am a big fan of Fantascape’s resin bases.  They are worth checking out.  I have a link to the right.





Thanks for reading.
