Inquisitor Blacktalon (7) – Finished

Wolf Alice – St Purple & Green 

 

I’ve finally finished Inquisitor Blacktalon:

 

It’s a lot brighter and cleaner than the Blanchitsu aesthetic tends to be – but I think that’s okay; as my painting style is usually quite drab, and this was intended to be a step outside my personal comfort-zone.

The main aim for painting this was to practice non-metallic metals – although I definitely haven’t mastered them, I think I have improved.

 

I was going to continue the Inquisitor warband that I left off last year, in order to paint the Typhus model – but I’ve decided to do something different with the Quaranin figure; which I will go through in the next post.

Inquisitor Blacktalon (3)

Wool – Coalinga 

 

I’ve finished most of the main figure; but I decided to paint the metal parts with non-metallic colours – which is not a method I’ve managed to master, previously.

So, it may take some time to get the gold and silver sections right. I think the sword blade needs adjusting slightly, as well; because the coloration is too subtle.

I wanted the face to look feminine, but quite austere.

I also opted for a blue-grey colour scheme, rather than the pristine white armour I was initially going to paint.

Taproot – Sumtimes 

 

I’ve painted the basecoat colours on this model:

I’m going to make the paint scheme a bit brighter and cleaner than I usually do:

And keep the base fairly simple/unadorned, to emphasise the sense of motion:

 

I think this series of posts will just be work in progress shots, as my health isn’t great at the moment; but if anybody wants specific colour recipes, please feel free to ask.

Christmas Project – Inquisitor Blacktalon

Digitalism – Circles

 

Having finished Typhus, I’m going to recontinue painting the Inquisitor-themed group which I started earlier this year; but I need a short break from painting.

So I decided to work on a kitbashing project.

I liked Peter Hudson’s conversion of Neave Blacktalon into an Inquisitor – and wanted to do something similar; but without just making a direct copy:

 

I’ve given her a bionic arm:

I’m still putting this together – and will probably make it a stand-alone model. But we’ll see.

The thought of zombie hordes is sometimes quite alluring.
