Our group is due to start a new Inquisimunda campaign in a few weeks time, and although I've decided to use an Eldar warband, I really wanted Dirske to be represented under a new guise.
Grim-faced Archeo-Historian Henig Drosk recently arrived in the Tiberium system in search of ancient Eldar artefacts. He has swiftly made connections in the smuggling rings dealing in xeno-tech; often dangerous, often fake, definitely illegal. It is rumoured that Drosk is a man on the run - he has few credentials, he buys artefacts and information with cash or in trade. Some say he is in league with Eldar Corsairs...
I wanted Dirske's new persona to take some visual cues from the original Inquisitor model I used. Although flamboyant Inquisitorial trappings were out of the window, I used the same colour palette and gave Drosk a similar visual look to Dirske with the robed lower half.
|In becoming Drosk, Dirske has ditched his ostentatious fabrics and outlandish armour.|
Drosk is made from 3 components. His lower body is from the Devout Cleric in the Citadel BC1 Adventurers Starter boxed set. His upper body is from the model below, which is an adventurer from the Zap! / Acropolis Future City range, now available from The Baggage Train (if you can find it in the largely pictureless webstore).
Finally, Drosk's head is from one of the Confrontation Tech gangers:
The initial assembly after hacking the pieces apart looked pretty promising:
So I greenstuffed some repairs, and covered the chain mail panels to turn them into something more like sci-fi armour.
I also kept the Cleric's books - I figured as Drosk is masquerading as an Archeo-historian, some suitable tomes would help with the cover story!
