The Faffing Inquisitor

Faffing (Britain, slang). To aimlessly waste time doing useless tasks.

  • Resizing minis for Inquisitor

    March 4, 2021 by

    Inquisitor is “54mm heroic” scale. So the average human mini is 54mm from the base of foot to the eye (also called 1/32 scale). And the minis are “heroic” as they are bulkier, especially the hands and head and weapons which are much larger in proportion to the rest of the mini. That said, 54mm… Read more

  • Genestealer Cults…Brood Brothers in Arms

    February 28, 2021 by

    This is my third post about the Genestealer cults. And the brood is growing. Brood brothers are the baseline troops of the genestealer cult. Human, but infected with genestealer genetic material. In 9th ed 40k they are portrayed as infected imperial guard, but they can also be civil workers or from other walks of life.… Read more

  • Goliaths

    February 28, 2021 by

    Time for some protein shakes. I’ve wanted to make some more Necromundia gangers and have been thinking Goliaths for a while now. I had some Tehnolog Barbarians minis in the bits box and my first plan was to kitbash them into Golitahs. But they would need a lot of work to get them up to… Read more

  • Harlequins…send in the space clowns

    January 30, 2021 by

    I love Harlequins! The fluff, the minis, the paint schemes. They provide an opportunity to showcase outlandish and colourful minis in such a dreary and drab 40k universe. There are no official inq scale harlequins. But kitbashing them is relatively easy if you can find a suitable model as a starting point. I say ‘relatively… Read more

  • 3D printers…the future is now

    January 30, 2021 by

    It was about a year ago that i blogged about how amazed i was with consumer level 3d printing. I even had a genestealer cultist limo printed up fairly cheap (though it wasn’t a resin print). I had even bought a few resin 3d prints from a few heresylab kickstarters as well. But now it… Read more

  • 2021…painting some minis again

    January 18, 2021 by

    Here are my first minis for 2021. It’s a mix of painted and half-painted and even a smattering of 3d printed parts (my mate has a 3d printer and kindly printed a few bits and pieces for me). I’ve asked my mate to print off a few more bits for me, which i will talk… Read more

  • Year in review…2020

    January 4, 2021 by

    My blog is still relatively new (my first post was early 2019 and sometimes i go months without posting). And that year, i didn’t paint much either. Instead i mainly used a commission painter. So i haven’t felt the need to reflect on my personal painting progress before. But i stopped using a commission painter… Read more

  • Models from other range…part 3

    December 1, 2020 by

    Here is a third list of alternative miniature companies that sell minis that can be re-purposed for inquisitor at 54mm scale. 51. Manufakura miniatures. Have two series of 54mm miniatures – the strife series and the sub series. The post-apocalyptic survivor girl can probably be easily 40k-ified. But both ranges are rather risque (especially the… Read more

  • Adeptus Ministorum…the Ecclesiarchy

    October 25, 2020 by

    I’m surprised that more models from the Adeptus Ministorum were not released. Drill Abbot Josef was released with the launch of the game, but nothing else was released (except a model from the adeptus sororitas, and even she was a sister repentia and not a sister of battle). I think Josef is a tricky model… Read more
