Since Iím using the henchmen squads for the Prospero Spire Guard I need to field Inquisitor Coteaz so Iíve converted the finecast Inquisitor to represent him as a general. First he was holding the hammer in his left hand which looked silly given how much it likely weights so I changed it to the other hand and gave him a heroic like pose with the hammer facing down, that was till I got this comment...
". . . he ends up looking like he's trying heroically . . . to play croquet."
After which I changed the pose immediately! I also later added in a steel scorpion, another conversion from my previous Machine Cult army to represent his cyber eagle or even a servo skull if I ever choose to use one.
Should I get the time and money I will likely add some more spire guard units to the army using guard allies which will include 1 of each of the following...
Command Squad; simple enough.
Penal Legion ; Need a troop choice but can't have veterans with poorer weapons than the basic troops and I'm not painting up an infantry platoon! Not sure how to convert them at the moment, most likely as a team of specialist spire guard?
Vendetta Gunship; Likely using the conversion concept I came up with for the Prospero disc speeder.
Leman Russ Executioner; Using the FW Deimos Pattern plasma predator to represent it.
Of course they'll have to wait as my next focus for this project will be the Cybernetica units.
