Pimp My Inquisitorial Ride

The lazy assembly of Grey Knight stuff continues. This is an experimental painting which started by spraying the rhino in base coat silver, and I made a grave mistake of using one with a smooth finishing ( Or do all silver spray come like that? That itself will be another subject worthy of inquisition...)

Also note the kit bashed stronos turret with bits from Aegis defence line. The end result is acceptable but the overall increase in center of gravity for the turret means unless it is tight fitted it will fall off given the slightest chance to do so, a small price for overall swag level increment.

The Throne of Judgement Painting done, for now

I must say I am a slow to warm up person, while a lot of people in my gaming group are jumping on to the Greater Good wagon only now I am slowly gathering my Inquisition force N years after the codex release date. This slow reaction to  "hot cheese" might be a sign of inner fundamental shift from looking at what to field to how to look good while fielding stuff... or simply could be sign of age.
Triple barrel multi melta, what is not to love about it?

Kamarazov and his band of misfits.

Warrior henchmen with assault weapons, on the left is a kit bashed storm bolter dude, middle guy from the old metal storm trooper box who will almost never find an employment in the elite unit anyway.

Interceptor squad.. yes I broke off one of the personal teleporter back packs antenna.

Painting The Throne of Judgement

While working on the throne, I began to understand why Cheng vowed to ban fine cast. This stuff feels like resin but does not react in the same way to super and plastic glue, the whole experience felt... weird. To add insult to injury, upon close up inspection certain details / connecting parts just don't live up to the "fine cast" status they claimed nor does it felt justified the for the price they demand.

My verdict for fine cast? While it is "fine" per say but expect less than what is promised by the GW promotional text. Anyway I just got a new macro lens for my brother's DSL and wasted no time in documenting the painting effort.

Primed and ready for paint!
Flanked by standard GK rifle dreads

Phase one painting complete, a few more hours into the details, details, details into this bad boy and he should be ready for battle.
