Here is the third and final member of my Inquisitorial warband, a savant. I was lucky enough to be invited to participate in an Inquisitor campaign at work which requires three starting characters for each warband. I decided to use the two models I have already completed and add a third. As time is in short supply at the moment due to work commitments I decided to use an off-the-peg model rather than convert a character from scratch. After some deliberation I settled on this down-trodden-looking fellow from the Death Korps quatermaster set. However, after opening the clampack I was unable to leave the model 100% untouched and so added a few embellishments in the form of a pet owl (probably the closest thing he has to a friend), a purity seal and an Inquisitorial icon to demonstrate his allegiance.

I imagine this guy to be the product of some Administratum program to produce humans with computer-like minds capable of extreme calculations in the place of AI (like the Mentats in Dune). His abilities have brought him to the attention of Inquisitor Sterne who uses him to help crack codes, gather information and decipher esoteric patterns of data. In game I can see him R2-D2ing doors and computer systems to aid the party in their endeavours.

I will post full background for my three characters once it is finalised.

    Very nice! I don’t know how long you’ve got until the event, but I think the parchment board looks a little out of place on the model given his purpose. Either way, looking forward to seeing him painted 🙂

      Thanks for the comment, I’m glad you like him.

      Personally, I really like the board on his back, it’s one of the things that drew me to the model. My idea is that he transcribes data or prints out the results of his computations and then affixes them to the board. When I paint it I want to give the impression of an overload of information that has been spewed out onto paper ready for Inquisitor Sterne’s use.

  2. Very nice! We need far more owls in INQ28, if you ask me!
