The completion of the Ordo Sicarius trio brings to a close my current series of Imperial Inquisitor retinues – as you might have noticed, these retinues are all linked across an organically-grown tale that has been forming over a seven years, since I wrote the vignette for The Brimstone Inquisitor and made the first mention of Inquisitor Kallatar – who then completely took over. I have the end in sight, planned and loosely written, however; to see her story completed – in both words and models – a change of pace is now necessary.
My modelling – as many of you have witnessed and commented on over the years – has been exacting and detailed and at times so strung out even I forgot where I was with certain characters; it has also – at times – become a very stressful thing for me; and a hobby should not be stressful.
Time to lower my too-high standards a little, to loosen up, to complete characters faster and to improve my painting as well – a somewhat paradoxical antithesis, but we all have dreams, right?
And so down a darker path we turn…
