28 mm Eisenhorn: Sat Feb 24th, resin


Recommended Posts

It's never a waste to bring Eisenhorn to the tabletop!

Last i checked, inquisitors were pretty uneddective for what they should do... I was hoping more plastics but alas, it´s resin, like someone said?

He looks young-ish?

Maybe he's found a way to reverse ageing.

 

Can't wait. I'll be running him on principle!

 

Edit :

 

Guys, don't let the resin put you off. Marbo, Verydian and Centos have all been excellent casts.

I think he is a bit a mishmash, meant to be after Malleus but long before Hereticus. He has his lightsabre from up to Malleus (although it is destroyed by Cherubael - unless it is Barbarisater in sheath, but it seems ... short), his bolt pistol, hair, and staff (made by Bure, not in Hereticus but in Malleus, after he lost the sabre), no mechanical aid. Anyway this is Gregor in Pariah, so it's not old Gregor:

 

 

I looked around. A man had sat down in the pews across the aisle, almost level with me. He had a large, powerful build, and was dressed in black. He was not a young man: his scalp was bald, and his craggy face showed the signs of old scars, but his bearing was noble and his demeanour grave. There was a power to him. I imagined he was a high-ranking veteran officer of the guard, a general. He had that air. His long, heavy coat was black, but it was shot through with green thread and had an elegant golden trim. He sat stiffly, as if he was somehow crippled, or his body was surgically braced.

 

Although he can still do this:

 

 

 

As I rolled, I saw the man leave the stairs in a great, dauntless bound. He cleared me entirely, leaping off  the stairs into the face of the oncoming monster, to meet it head-on. He was in mid-air above me, his sword scything through the darkness in a single-handed stroke as he leapt, heading for the inevitable impact.

I know this is a bit of a stretch but could this indicate that the Specialist game department is planning on producing an Inquisitor game in 28 mm scale? Wild speculation on my part but...

  1. This is the second Inquisitor model to be re-imagined in 28 mm (Captain Artemis being the first) and secondly...

  2. The original Inquisitor game, if I'm not mistaken, measured distances in yards meaning that it could be scaled to accommodate games using 40K miniatures.

As for it being in resin? Yeah, that is a big con for me. I just hate working with the material!

Young Eisenhorn?

The 54mm Inquisitor Eisenhorn model appears to be in a time period after most of the novels he has appeared in. He looks a lot like this:

In comparison to this Eisenhorn in the novels is a fair bit younger. This miniature looks to me like it's from that time period.

I know finecast has scarred people for life, but shockingly it is possible to produce a high quality resin cast. 

 

It's certainly possible, but in my experience with FW, it's pretty much a coin flip whether or not the bits will have obvious, glaring errors. As in, the two halves of the mold were a full inch offset from eachother and somehow nobody noticed.

Certainly looks like he's got a full head of hair.

 

I'm interested, no fear of resin. Been waiting for GW to put out some new, decent Inquisitor models (there were some good elements on Greyfax, but not a fan of the whole).

 

Awaiting a less blurry pic.

Definitely, both the limited Forge World items I have purchased in the GW store have been worth it, IMO, I could easily use them for things I wanted to add to my armies.

 

I also got Captain Centos, but only because he was free with purchases I was already intending to make - I would definitely not have paid for him considering his rules and the model didn't really add anything unique appearance-wise.

 

Marbo was really good.

The mini that I saw in the store looked nice, but I've never wanted to collect him and his rules added nothing I wanted (and didn't really seem worth it for his points even in an army he'd match up with) to my Scions army, so was wasted overall, IMO. A special character not specifically written for inclusion in a Codex should make you want to take him/her by rules, otherwise they should just give the model away with X dollars, yen, GBP, pesos, euros, etc., in purchases if it is just a nostalgia production.

 

If Eisenhorn is going to be an effective addition to Imperial armies, then he'd be worth picking up, otherwise, once again, where's that Abaddon model? We've only been waiting like 20 years...

There was a rumour floating about years ago about a potential Inq28 game, someone even claimed to know what was on one of the sprues. At first I thought it was a load of rubbish that somebody threw out there due to the Blanchitsu articles, but as GW takes a few years to work on a product who knows.

For the resin-uninitiated, how much preparation does the GW resin take before you can paint it? Does it need the soaking and scrubbing that I hear FW resin needs or is it ok straight out of the blister? Any sort of priming needed?

Any resin usually takes scrubbing to some degree but depending on the manufacturer you might get lucky and get away without doing it. I wouldn't risk it tho because having a half painted model just to see the paint not sticking really sucks.

Priming is always needed for the paint to stick. Don't ever skip that step.

The forgeworld stuff is always covered in release agent. The newer Gdub stuff looks like it has been rinsed beforehand and primes fine without needing to clean it. The trick is to run your finger fairly firmly along the model, and if it feels greasy or slick it needs washed. If your finger catches on the plastic it’s fine.

Re: Resin models. No matter how much I scrub the darned things, there's always some release agent still left on that I've missed.

 

The trick is to scrub it a couple of times, get as much off as possible then give the whole mini a thin (keep it thin!) coat of Gloss Varnish. Seals the model and protects it from the paint peeling off.
