Sergent Trepas and acolyte


Alright, after a quick and silly group painting session, it was time to get back on my Inq28 painting challenge.
Since I've already built 6 of them (and am in progress on the 7th because even numbers look odd... well strange, you know what I mean), I just had to pick a couple I could do rapidly and here are the guys I picked.


With the inquisitor and bodyguard done, I could try and see how the henchmen would look. 
One of the very first bits I picked when selected parts to do this band was the skull with cap from the Ogryn set. I knew instantly I had to use it as is on top of a body and that's how Sergent Trepas was born.

Trepas has always been one zealous commissar. Not exactly renowned for his mental flexibility and brightness but surely one whose faith is undoubted. Trepas is the kind to consider question are the seeds of Heresy and the Words of the Emperor are to be followed withoutthinking too much about the interpretation.



Painting wise, I'm still digging the Blueshitsu path and am enjoying it. I've added orange a different way this time and I actually find the result looks a bit (in idea rather than quality) like what you'd expect from the Kouzes which although unintentionnal is not exactly unfortunate.


So that's 4 models in and 3 more to go so I should see the end of this rather soon. Time to get working on a few backburners... ^^

  1. Great job mate - that head works perfectly on the commissar, and the other chap's sword is pretty special! I'm loving the blue :-)

    1. Thanks ! It's a bit hard to draw a line where OTT becomes ridiculous. It's fun process trying bits and finding that zone. ^^

    1. They're honestly proving to be far more enjoyable than I thought. Guess I'm getting used to plastics. ^^

    1. Cheers, I'm just finishing the 7th model (which might be my favourite actually) which makes 3 more to paint.
      They're a fun bunch to be working on.

  7. Funny - when those ogryn were released I thought the shoulder skull looked bloody silly. You've repurposed it rather well tho JB.
    I really like both of these. This team is packed with character and there's still 3 members to come!

    1. To be fair, it's the bit I immediately saw when opening the box and I have no idea how else it could be used in a way that I like... ^^
