So after the block painting comes the ink.
I may yet go back and fill in the skull eye sockets with black paint, but basically it is finished.
This is a great sculpt, maybe a bit smaller than I was expecting, but I really like the quality of Wargame Exclusive models. I must order some more!
By the time I had finished slapping paint onto the resin Inquisitors car, it was a lot less black and grey than I thought it was going to be. Needs inking.
This resin Inquisitor Car from Wargame Exclusive is a great looking model, another I have been delaying in painting.
Being of a Batmobile type design, I thought I would paint it black, but black is such a hard colour to do. So I decided on dark Panzer Grey instead…which is nearly black…
The range of models from Wargame Exclusive is superbly detailed and given that they are on the other side of Europe, postage costs have been okay so far.
I wanted an alternative model to lead my Grey Knights and this chap fits the role.
There are more models I fancy getting my hands on, but they will have to wait a while, a least until I finish some other projects.
This is another model that has been in the Loft Full Of lead for ages, when I say ages, I mean years and years. I think this was the first Contemptor Class Dreadnought released by Forge World.
I have magnetized the weapon mounts so there is plenty of scope for weapon combinations using the three I have and possibly adding more in the future.
I really like the model, but having it for years, I was not sure how to paint it, Blood Angels red or perhaps a gun metal and silver finish. I already have four Blood Angels Dreadnoughts so did not really need another. So I went down the metallic route as a Dreadnought for the Grey Knights.
I ordered a few models from Wargame Exclusive a couple of weeks ago after spending a week or so drooling over the eye candy on their website. They have now arrived and I have been distracted from the current project.
There are several models I like the look of on their website, one of which was an alternative Space Marine character that I fancied using as a Grey Knights model.

The casting is just fantastic with only a little cleanup worked required. There are several very small bits, I thought I lost one bit when I was washing it, but they all seem to be there. I am not sure where some of the very small bits go, I may leave some off.
When he is done, he should look like this…
Wargame Exclusive are base in the Ukraine with an expanding range of really nice models. Shipping is reasonable at a flat €4 rate across Europe.
Servo Skulls seem to be quite rare, not a lot of models come with them and eBay prices are a bit excessive. So I thought I would have a go at making some. I have a Silly Gum mould of a couple of skulls and a good supply of green stuff skulls. I added some bits in the eyes and mouths. The real test will be to see what they look like when painted.
I also needed to add a Multi-Melta to my Land Raider and due to lack of spares of that particular weapon, I had to make one. I added one of the Servo Skulls to the weapon, looks okay for a first attempt.
