Former Ordo Xenos Inquisitor Nestorian

I've been back from the holiday for a couple of days. During this time I've managed to complete Nestorian and started to paint the members of his retinue. 

The first game of the Nestorian Infestation project, that I'm working on with Bigbossredskullz, is quickly approaching. We are planning to have the first game, that will be the beginning of the story, in the end of August. I still have to paint a few more models for the project and finish the gaming board. I'm also planning to make a blog post containing all the characters that will take part in the story, both mine and the ones done by Bigbossredskullz, explaining their background and role in the story. I think the weeks before the game will be quite exciting. 

First up is Nestorian, the main character of my Genestealer Cult:

Nestorian has served the holy Inquisition for decades, hunting down the tainted xenos and those who ally themselves with aliens. 
But this was before he turned his back on the Imperium and joined the Genestealer Patriarch and his Cult. Nestorian believes that the Four Armed Emperer (the Genestealer Patriarch) is the true incarnation of the God Emperor. By joining the Four Armed Emperors Hive Mind, Nestorian believes that he will become a divine being, sharing his mind, body and soul with the true God Emperor.

  4. Beautiful and utterly weird conversion. The paintjob's ace. Reminds me a lot of Kari's (of Spiky rat/Ironsleet fame) work - especially in detailts like the striped garments.

    1. Cheers! Kari's work is a great inspiration, so I probably have his work in the back of my mind while I paint :)

  5. That's fantastic. The stripy trousers. The triple left arm. The Flagellants head. Beautiful paint work, excellent modelling and a spiffing base to boot.

    1. Thank you! I really like that he needs several mechanical arms to be able to lift the huge gun.

  6. This is a wonderful model. I was really looking forward to what you had in mind for the fallen Inquisitor. You always do an excellent job of bypassing standard 40k tropes and making unique things. Nestorian does not look like any other Inquisitor that I have seen before!
