Engineering modules (W40K)

I've finished some more 'Inquisimunda' furniture this week - 3 engineering modules from Hasslefree Miniatures.  First up: a small plasma generator.  I attempted some light-sourcing on this, & am pleased with the result.

Next,  a water still / vaporator.  I felt this piece was missing something - it appears designed to allow connection of a pipe.  I opted for a mushroom-shaped cap that I found lying around.

Lastly, a machine of indeterminate purpose (I expect only the tech-adepts of the Mechanicum would understand it's workings).

All these pieces should be useful for fleshing-out rooms & locations in 'Inquisimunda' & Necromunda.

Crates & lockers (W40K)

This weekend I painted-up some cargo crates & lockers for Warhammer 40,000.  These will be very useful as furniture in my planned 'Inquisimunda' adventure-skirmish campaign, & in any future games of actual Necromunda.  I'm keeping furniture & details like these separate from the rooms & scenery that I'm building wherever possible, to maximise layout/use variation. For example the vertical lockers could be used horizontally as freezers etc.

All these solid resin scenery pieces are available from Hasslefree Miniatures, in their Resin Terrain section.

WIP Inquisition figures (W40K)

I don't like to post unfinished minis on this blog, but it's been a while since my last post, so here's what I've been up to: a WIP image of my latest Inquisition figures.  These are mainly only in basic colours - I need to add highlights, light-sourcing etc, & tidy-up the paint work.  From left to right there is the Inquisitor Lord, a (psychic warrior) crusader, a hitman-type/general troubleshooter, & the rogue trader Void Mistress whose ship the inquisition band use for travel.
All the figures are from the excellent Hasslefree Miniatures.  I scratch-built the inquisitor's helmet from two GW Chaos Marauder shoulder pads, & the aquila from an old GW dreadnaught's banner pole.  I'm not keen on the chunky sword, so am looking to replace it with something more arcane-looking.  The crusader will have a bolt pistol in her left hand.  The hitman has a sergeant's head from the GW Cadian sprues.  The Void Mistress is unmodified.  The lethal-looking blade will count as a C'tan phase sword in the 'Inquisimunda' adventure that I'm planning to GM.

These are the specific figures that I used:
Inquisitor Lord - Steampunk Warrior
Crusader - Jenova
Hitman - Harby
Void Mistress - Andreah
