Claronius Rock is Ordo Xenos and the former Interrogator of Tobin Grimm. That sword IS the same one that Dara Sabbatine used (these models entered later in the campaign, just after Dara's death). Claronius fought with Grimm against Macharius, but later felt Cain had turned his former master too far and later fought as an ally of the Puritan in an effort to destroy the Daemonhost with the Black Sword (proving Macharius was not quite as Puritan as he used to be - ah, the slippery slope). No idea what Code Name Archer's story was.. I may not have known it then I just found the name listed among some scrawled notes with 'she' in the sentence and that's the only model it could have referred to...
Tobin Grimm is Ordo Xenos and a Xanthanist Radical. This warband features more conversions, albeit mostly minor ones. The only thing I remember about the background of this group is that the black sword carried by Dara is somehow bound with Cain.
The names of the rest will begin to falter. I might dig up a few, but these first eight models were the crux of my campaign. some of them are dead - Dara was actually slain by her own sword and Matthias Roller and Goya were lost to a warp portal. It was a brutal campaign. Some of the models that follow fought with or against Tobin and Johan.
Somehow it completely skipped my mind to post Sunday, so I'll leave this here now and drop in another this Sunday.
I was first just going to post a pile of models, but I thought it might be good to post them in the warbands as they were recruited. First up is the retinue of Johan Macharius (including the big guy himself again for context). I'll included names when I can remember them, but alas the sheets (before I kept all such things on my PC) have been absconded with - obviously to prevent them falling into the wrong hands...
JOHAN MACHARIUS, JUDGE, JURY, AND EXECUTIONER
MATHIAS ROLLER, FAITHFUL SERVANT OF THE EMPEROR'S WILL
BELTANE TARSHA, BOUNTY HUNTER
GOYA 1828-A, ARCO-FLAGELLANT/SWORD OF THE EMPEROR
Johan Macharius is Ordo Malleus and an Amalathian puritan in the strictest sense. These models were mostly out of the box kits, but I added the arm from a Ghazkull model. If memory serves, I copied this from one of the warbands in the first White Dwarf battle report (still have those around here somewhere, need to dig them out and have a read through again).
His arch nemesis, Tobin Grimm and his warband will be up next...
I mentioned a while ago that I have a large collection of 54mm Inquisitor models, at least in terms of what most people seem to have for that game. I also promised to post pics, many of which I've never shown on the net before, but it turned out that most of the photos were poor. I finally had a chance to take shots of each model, so this week's post will portray the Inquisitors...
I had names for every model in the collection at one point, but for the life of me I can't find the folder with the character sheets. The top two are Johan Macharius and Tobin Grimm (who both featured heavily in the original campaign from 2001), but the monikers of the others escapes me. The entire collection features my rather amateurish and comic-book style attempt at NMM, but I liked the effect.
I'll have another post next Sunday, and each Sunday thereafter for.. well, a while anyway!
