First, splendid stuff! Love the inquisitor.

Second, I've had that model since the late 80s or early 90s, but by the time I got him he was just packaged with an ordinary plastic backpack. Did he originally come with that cloak? I know a lot of the earliest miniatures came with metal at one time. (I have a few examples, but not that one.) Not sure where you got it, but I love it! :)

I basically picked him from the old catalogues on SoL as being most suitable for my purpose and went hunting for him. Part of that was because he had that cloak in the catalogue image.

I will admit having to find the cloak separately, at a fairly steep price although not the highest I've ever seen a Rogue Trader backpack go for.

^I don't blame you a bit. That cloak is awesome! :) I'm tempted to search it down myself, even if I have to pay a modest premium, and strip and repaint my own example. More likely, though, I could strip and repaint and try to fashion him a similar backpack using bits and greenstuff. :)

Keeping the enthusiasm going and have painted two more models to go with the inquisitor, inspired by the same source material.

Captain Hanz Ollow of the Perennial Sparrow and his beastial first mate Broo'Chakka.



Hanz with his fetching yellow trouser stripe.





Broo





These two along with the Inquisitor are for a scenario idea I'm vaguely working on involving the board sections from a copy of the old Ultramarines board game.

Till next time...
