WIP: INQ28 The Chapel Warband, part 10

Ok, here’s a quick one. I’ve built one of the henchmen for my Rogue Trader’s crew. This is Castess Aranoth. I try and cook up some background but I’m kind of blank at the moment. 

I like the reasonable proportions of the axe.


I got a couple more lined up. So stay tuned.

    1. Yeah, I prefer the plasma guns from HH boxed games. Much sleeker. But reasonable (or realistic) hand weapons are very rare these days. The insanely sized axes for the AoS Khorne guys … geez.

      1. Are Bloodreavers the bodybuilders? It’s such a missed opportunity for GW not to mix the body types in those boxes (the Khorne and Tzeentch cultist kits). It would have be amazing kits if you had some more normal bodies too. All bodybuilders, all the time. No thanks.

      2. Haha. I can’t think of any model or faction that look normal. Maybe Imperial Guard (apart from Catachans) but then they’re still not in proportion. From a modelling point of view the larger bits and pieces are much easier to handle with my big hands and fingers haha.

      3. Normal is a sliding scale I guess – the Chaos Cultist are good. They got pretty normal bodies, even the ripped guys. Their weapons aren’t over the top. Just hero style.

  1. I like it – he mixes practicality and ostentatiousness nicely. Agree with you on the outsized weapons, it works for “bodybuilder races” like Khorne or Orks, or for units in power armour, but a bit more variety at the smaller end of things would be nice. At least now we’ve got a suitable source of human-scale ranged weapons thanks to the Genestealer cults and the Skittari.

    1. I know! But funny thing is, he’s probably more like 90 % 40k bits and 10 % fantasy. But the head and axe dominate the model (and the torso looks quite fantasy but it’s 40k).
