One of the best things about rebasing old figures is that it makes them seem new and fresh. It's also good to see how quickly my idea of basing all my 40K figures in the desert brings them all together. I may have to do a bit of repainting here and there, but my Inqusitorial retinue really looks the part. Before they were all based in classic NW Europe style green, which is great, but something about desert basing just screams "science fiction" to me.

It's probably got something to do with Tunisia...

...can't think why.

Well, actually, an Inquisitor on the left, her Interrogator (trainee) on the right.

Paradisan* Imperial Guard officer and Defence Force SNCO on the left, Inquisitorial Stormtrooper Bodyguard Detail on the right (note grenade launcher, because sometimes when engaged in close protection you need to be able to give people the high explosive good news).

Portia and Staria, assassins from the upper levels of Hive Tertius on Varangia. No target too well protected for this duo!

L-R: Qunaya Snorisdottir, Squat pilot and mechanic; Jokaero weaponsmith; Primaris Psyker of the Adeptus Astra Telepathica.
L-R: Savant; Scribe-servitor; unknown? possibly servitor.

I painted up both the servitor/mutant with the red hood and massive sword (it's bigger than the Psyker or the tall Inquisitor in black armour!) and the pink-haired abhuman pilot/scoundrel type today, while my son, T, who is five, added this terminator in camouflage to his list of painted figures:

He then used the pot of sand as a mini-sandpit for his Lego figures. And why not?

Finally, there's yet more stuff for sale on my eBay. Go here to have a look and see if there's anything you might like: fully painted Haradrim? Malus Darkblade? Codex: Dark Angels for a tenner?

* The (surprisingly named) Paradise-class world Paradiso is a matriarchical society; men are not allowed to serve in the Paradisan armed forces and are never drafted into the Paradisan Imperial Guard regiments.

  1. A fine bit of painting by T! Three generations of silliness - excellent!
