Inquistion- Inquisitor Greyfax

Now that I have some Mechanicus units painted for Inner Circle it’s time to focus on the characters.  For me it was a no brainer to paint up a scene from Fall of Cadia.  I bought the Triumvirate of the Imperium and Adeptus Mechanicus models.  I have loads of Sisters I can throw in to the mix as well.  My display will not work if the Triumvirate is not complete though.  I decided to start with the appetizer- Inquisitor Greyfax.

Greyfax WIP 1

Most of the time I deviate from the studio choices for colours.  This is one of those times I chose to follow the studio.  I liked how the model turned out for the studio so I figured why not.

I primed the model with black and then sprayed it with Leadbelcher and washed with Nuln Oil.  The gold is based with Retributor Armour  then a layer of Burnished Gold with a wash of Agrax Earthshade.  The red is Scab Red with a wash of Agrax Earthshade.  The loincloth is Rakarth Flesh and a wash of Agrax.

I haven’t worked on the skin yet because my paints have truly dried out.  My three flesh tones are the ancient hexagonal pots with black lids.  They dried out a long time ago but all I do is scoop a bit out, apply some water and I am able to coax it back into life.  It worked for the Storm Trooper Sergeant I painted a couple of weeks ago.  Well, not anymore.  I applied the water and the paint wasn’t having it.  Time to buy some new flesh tones.

Now some progression.  I highlighted the gold with Burnished Gold then Mithril Silver.

The red is highlighted with Scab Red, Red Gore, Blood Red and a final edge highlight of Squig Orange.  This is also my final hurrah with Scab Red.  My pot is empty and now I must buy the current equivalent of Khorne Red.

For the hair I based with Scorched Brown with Agrax Earthshade.  I highlighted with Bestial Brown and Snakebite Leather. All I have left is the skin and black highlights.

Thanks for reading.

    • I’m posting in the order I’m painting the models. The saint and her bodyguards and Canoness Veryidan are next. I still have to start Cawl. I’m also working on a Jokaero, Astropath and Priest.
