Showcase: Inquisitorial retinue
This retinue was a great excuse to band together and paint a whole load of cool minis I had kicking around. I used the basic red gold combo with some of the new GW turquoise paints as spot colours. The cherubims and vindicare are deliberately at the far end of the white/black spectrum to add contrast and stop the unit looking dull, but maintaining elements of the core colour scheme. Inspired loosely by Abnetts inquisitor themed writings, I enjoyed painting the 'Amos' character in light of the backstory. Obviously the minis aren't direct representations of the book characters, but the idea and inspiration to get them finished wouldn't have happened without the books. More pictures if you'd care to click.
