Last month I declared my intentions to host the Inquistion Conclave here on the Neverness Hobby Chronicle, and from the feedback I received we are definitely going to do this. All you have to do is get yourself an Inquisitor miniature and throughout August, paint it up and send me your progress updates. You can message me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, and send me either pics or a link to your own blog. It's up to you). Of course, I'll post my own updates here as well. We will kick this off on August 1st, with the Conclave itself to happen on the first week or weekend of September; I will know more as we get there. That should be plenty of time for most of us I hope!
Now, I need to decide on what I am going to paint. I have a few candidates to chose from, but first let's see who they are:
This first model also happens to be the first Inquisitor I ever owned. Dr. TSG and I, on one of our jaunts into Ipswich in '89, had a little spending money left over and we decided to split a blister pack. This had just came out, and he really wanted the mini with a goat tee*. We didn't even know which arms went with which model, we just worked it out. He loved that mini so much he painted it that weekend.** I didn't even own paints yet, so he remained, and remains still, unpainted. He is an Ordo Malleus Inquisitor and looks ready to burn some witches. Note, this was the only blister pack I ever got from the Rogue Trader era or since, that came with gray bases.

I have other options to consider which I still have mint in box or blister.
|Inquisitor Lord Cortez (and friends).|
|The Witch Hunter and his host of fanatics.|
|Yes, his arm option is a pointing finger.|
|Lady Witch Hunter.|
Soon I will make my final choice. Heck, I might just say screw the lot of 'em and get that bald woman with the shuriken catapult. Clearly my options are open, and so are yours! We will see what I pick before the month of August is over.
My buddy The Bob got so excited last month that he jumped the gun and started painting up two Inquisitors. One of which he has already finished! He keeps this pace up, and we'll just host the Conclave at his house! 😆

*The same model that the painting of Inquisitor Draco on the cover of the 1st edition of Inquisitor was inspired by.
**I hope to do a feature on this miniature of his in the near future.
