I have no idea where I acquired the figure for Jason Scarn, my new bounty hunter and Inquisition “recruit,” but when I found him in my bitz box, I immediately put him on my painting table.
The figure clearly is old … I suspect I picked him up at a flea market at one of the hobby conventions I intend. There’s nothing particularly interesting about the painting technique I used, so I won’t bother giving details. What you see tells you enough.
But he is an important step. It’s been more than two years since I introduced the Inquisition to the Corvus Cluster (Inquisition strikes at Mora), but in that battle report, I used a patched-together Inquisition team. I had only the vaguest idea of what my Inquisitors ultimately would look like.
Except for Inquisition agent Adonai Drusus—and half a dozen Scions-turned-Inquisition stormtroopers—I had no characters actually painted … just a name for my lead Inquisitor: The Lady Serillion.
That’s changing. When Deathwatch Overkill was released, the miniatures just caught my attention and I bought the boxed set, even though I knew that painting Imperial Guard would stay my priority during my life-and-death struggle against the orks on Hegira.
But I finally have a handful of Deathwatch primed and on my painting table. I also picked up some more Scions to fill out my Inquisition stormtrooper squad (Painting: Inquisition Stormtroopers), and I found an old female Inquisition figure that will become Serillion.
So, Scarn is simply the first of a dozen miniatures that will be coming out soon and expanding my Inquisition forces. As I’ve become a fan of the skirmish game, Shadow War: Armageddon, I expect to see my Inquisitors very active in the months ahead.
Also, I suspect they’ll soon be heading to Dryilian to find out how Drusus is doing against the Necrons. (And more about Drusus is coming soon.)
