Painting: Inquisition Stormtroopers

The first of my Inquisition stormtroopers have marched off my painting table—but a few reinforcements are needed before they hit the tabletop. My desire for a military arm to the Inquisition stems from a series of scenarios that I’ve developed for Inquisitor Serillian of the Ordos Xenos, who […]
