Scibor Retinue Stunties and Mr Bones poses for Objective Markers



 Scibor has these great atmospheric Stunties (aka as Squats... shhhh) to help carry your cool war gear or your Xenophobic Message of the Day. 

I went a little crazy when I saw them and got the whole assortment... or at least all of it that I am aware of and put them to the brush.

Initially I had thought to use them as Watchers in the Dark and painted all the bases in Dark Angel colors for use in the ruins on The Rock but figures themselves don't really have that spooky vibe so.....

I did a set of them as Inquisition retinue.  Maybe a little odd using abhumans for that but some of them are obviously servitors, or at least well on their way, and it a perfectly acceptable hypocrisy to press them into Ecclesiarchy service.

The castings are relatively clean although there is some ambiguity in the harder to reach places, primarily the undersides of things but the resin has a good feel to it and I'm generally pleased with the product.  The sculpting is very cartoon like, which suits my painting style well.

Now to find a suitably thematic Inquisitor for them to escort!

The Heresy Suppression Force slowly fills out as a largely non-GW accessory.  The Sisters of Battle will be GW since I have a pile of them lying around but I'm thinking of spinning them up as a solo army and making the HSF a separate project entirely.  The HSF will be Raging Heroes.  I'd like to do wheeled, medium weight vehicles for them instead of a tracked heavy build to fit with the urban based, anti insurgent theme.  

" Hear Ye!, Hear Ye!  Today we HATE the Alien!"

To be fair they hated the Alien yesterday as well.  They probably hate you too!  Lots of hate in the Imperium!
 Here are a couple of armorer serfs for a Black Templar that I know... just a tad heretical!

"Hey Dracamir!  You gonna need your Boarding Party Gear today?"


 No retinue is complete without someone to carry your gun and a keg of your favorite beverage!


The keg can do double duty with my Dark Angels...

These guys could also make good objective markers themselves now that I think about it.  They serve no game purpose, other than possibly to represent wargear, and would look cool in that role.
Mr Bones!

He's cute and spooky in a Scooby Doo kinda way.  I thought I'd make use of him as a generic, color coded, objective marker set. The shovel just screams ... "Ok dig here!"

I failed when doing cleanup on these guys and the retain a lot of mold lines.  I might have to go back and do something about the most egregious of them.... the fingers!  I'll probably just paint them as rings and call it a day.  These are Tabletop quality after all!
