Inquisitor Miniatures from the "Evil" Empire.

I know that Games Workshop get constantly trashed on world wide web and probably elsewhere for that matter; but if it weren't for them I'd never have got into tabletop gaming or roleplaying at all. Over the years I've owned a large amount of their products and for the most part enjoyed gaming with them, particularly those that are now consigned to the limbo of the Specialist games range; Necromunda, Gorka Morka, Mordheim et al. The last of these that I bought into in a big way was Inquisitor, a skirmish game set in the Warhammer 40K universe. What particularly drew me in were the large scale miniatures produced for the game, on reflection I seem to remember spending more time assembling & painting the miniatures rather than gaming with them and to be honest I'm rather glad of the fact because I don't think they would have stood up to much rough handling.
Here they are in their Baroque glory:

Slick Devlin, my least favourite of the miniatures just not fond of that loincloth.
Daemon Huntress.
Space Marine, great miniature but really top heavy.

Inquisitor Eisenhorn, my favourite of the lot.

And finally a pair of servo skulls.
Theres a few more of these somewhere in the house which I'll drag out & post later on. This has got me thinking about investing in some of Fantasy Flight Games 40K roleplaying stuff but given my already limited free time buying into another rpg I won't have time to run may not be the best use of money.

  1. Really nice Inquisitor collection. I read through those rules and really liked them but couldn't get the group into them.

    As an aside, I don't think GW deserves the panning it gets. :)
