Mutants and Tables

I'm sure most of you reading this will be aware of Games Workshop's Necromunda and Inquisitor games. In a few weeks time I'll be starting an Inquisimunda campaign.

I plan to use a radical Ordo Malleus Inquisitorial warband, with my Inquisitor Hennel Dirske front and centre. 
I already had several suitable henchmen painted, but after drawing up a provisional list, I discovered I needed two additional characters - an inquisitional acolyte with a plasma gun, and a recruit with an autogun.

I've tried to maximise some hobby time over the past 6 days. The first opportunity was up in Glasgow where I was working for 3 days at the end of last week.

Professor Barossus, Tutor to the Marcisa of House Ulanti

Professor Barossus has been in the employ of House Ulanti for decades as a retained tutor to the noble sons and daughters of the House. The Professor is an exceptional scholar in ancient Terran history and advanced warp physics, however his primary role is to educate the wealthy and the privileged on mundane topics such as etiquette, Imperial Gothic dialects and trade and commerce.

Currently the Professor is responsible for finishing the education of Anamuria, the petulant Marcisa of House Ulanti. As her personal tutor, he is one of Anamuria's constant attendents, along with her personal bodyguard, Eduardo Murat.
