Arcoflagellant Concept art

Arcoflagellant XVMIIIO of the ORDO CHRONOS

The sources I drew inspiration from:

Inq28/40k - ARCOFLAGELLANT conversions - update 1

Inspired by the work of others I have decided to do my own take on the arcoflagellants.
I am undecided about poses so feedback would be really appreciated!

Inq28/40k - Female Inquisitor Interrogator/henchman

I've started on an interrogator, it's an evolution of the Leeloo conversion I failed to make.
I was thinking of having her lean over, as if she was turning whilst running.

Inq28/40k - Rogue trader 2 update 1

I've repositioned the head and cut the hair off and repositioned it. I can't decide which I prefer.
My inspiration for the hair was this piece of 40k art

Inq28/40k - Another rogue trader, an advisor and a crusader

Rogue Trader - Inspired by some of Blanche's work. He's going to hold a cane in his right hand.

Advisor - head is blue tacked will be trimmed so the model is not so tall. Thinking of using a different head.

Crusader - a simple idea for a crusader. Waiting for the ad mech troops kit to arrive and I am planning to use the helmet from there. The body is a cast converted imperial guard torso.

Inq28/40k - Inquisitorial navigator 5

Only a small update. I have decided on a head! It fits the Giger theme a bit better. I plan on adding tubing from the white plastic tubing on the right hand side to just behind the mouth piece.

Inq28/40k - Inquisitorial Navigator 4

I've finished the legs now, unfortunately the left leg broke at the ankle to I had to pin it back. Once I'm back at uni where most of my supplies are I think I'll add a strip of plasticard to the front to hopefully provide a bit more support.
I've added the arms and started to sculpt them, although at the moment they look like arm bands!
I've added some detail to the loin cloth and also started word on the head and back

I think I might take a little break from this guy and work on something else for a while because although I do enjoy sculpting little bits. I'm finding it a bit taxing sculpting so much. I'm going to go back to kit bashing for a while.

Inq28/40k - Inquisitorial Navigator 3

Slow progress on this one
I've decided I'm going to sculpt a lot of it and unfortunately that means a lot of drying time. I can't work on the arms until I've done the legs and I don't really want to work on the top until the arms and head are done...
But thankfully the legs are pretty much done!

I'm waiting on some bits, I've ordered from france before and even they have arrived sooner! But the plan is to have piping from the white tube on his right hand side up to a gas mask on one of the ghoul heads. I'm also going to add further detail to the loin cloth at the top.

Inq28/40k - Inquisitorial Navigator 2

Get those legs out!
I have done some more work on this creature. After fixing the legs to the torso, the model looked weird, the limbs looked gangly, the stomach long and the bottom flat! In the inspiration picture the buttocks are quite high up and this was not the case with my initial mock up. The only way I felt I could rectify this was by re-sculpting the thighs. This was the first work properly sculpting limbs. It really helped having the plastic underneath. The muscles won't be anatomically correct because I just made it up, I figured it could all be synthetic muscle stitched into place to help him lift the great thing on his back!

ORDO CHRONOS - Penitent engine - inq28/40k

My next project is going to be something larger hopefully. I want something big I can come back too and chip away at whilst making smaller characters.

I really like the Metal Gear Solid games, especially the cyborg and organic elements. I am planning to make a 40k-ified version of the Gekko. Its like a scout AI walker. 

Metal gear solid gekko
My 40k version will have a heretic bound to the underside, and will be about 90mm high.

Relative size

ORDO HERETICUS - Inquisitorial Henchman crossbow bolter conversion - Update 3

I have finished the Ordo Hereticus henchman with a crossbow-bolter combi weapon! After the amount of effort I put into this character and suggestion from a forum member I am going to upgrade him from a henchman to a named character. He will be a heretic/witch/psychic hunter.

Purity seals and purity scrolls are held in place via nails into his legs. Sculpted gloves.
Bolts to hold his breast plate in place. Bandaging around his legs.
Aiming down his sights. About to unleash a burst of bolts or silver darts into a heretic.
The bolts on his leg are strapped to his thigh
A respiratory on his back aids breathing in harsh conditions. The only "extravagance" he allows.
His hood flops down onto his respirator. Pouches contain holy ointments and supplies.
