I've been lurking on the inq28 forums again and duly inspired decided to have another go at a single character. Up to this point the only completed model I had to show for it was Inquisitor Ney and that was over a year ago. At some point in building his warband I felt as though I was chasing a cliche: He was potentially becoming a shadow of Eisenhorn. What I think I should have been doing is building my Inquisitor from his agents: My decisions about his retinue informing the nature of the central character. Maybe next time.
I decided that Amadeus might have crossed a line philosophically but the circumstances would be much easier to justify than fighting chaos with chaos and more appropriate to a moderate; someone not so easily defined as a radical or a puritan. Belonging to the Ordos Hereticus Ney has dedicated himself to expunging the enemy within from Imperial society. To some extent his employment of and relationship with xenoforms would seem beyond the dictates of his higher purpose. Additionally he would believe that chaos is chaos and any resource or ally beyond it's province is fair game in the persecution of his duties.
Songun Kro was built from the Kroot plastics kit. I cut and repositioned some limbs but apart from cleaning up some joins there wasn't much of anything done to the stock model. I created the pose because I wanted him to look as though he had stopped in the pusuit of some quarry and was scenting or tasting the blood of his prey to gain insight into where they were heading. He isn't in a terrible rush; the enemy is wounded, leaving a trail and the conclusion of this hunt is as inevitable as death.
Building the model was enjoyable but I'm posting him in his gray plastic glory because I'm not sure how I should paint him. "Classic" drab green seems a no-brainer but I'm not sure and would like to request some suggestions from someone else.
