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.

ORDO HERETICUS - Inquisitorial Henchman crossbow bolter conversion - Update 2

Small update this time. I've partially sculpted a hood, added shoulder guards and also a cable from his respirator on the back to his chest however when I was sculpting the hood I accidentally touched it so I had to remove it. I'm going to replace it with a slightly larger tube. I still haven't decided how I want to base him. I think it will be a simple dirt/sand ground.
He's almost done. I need to finish the right side of the hood, add the tube and also sculpt straps to the bolts on his thigh.

ORDO HERETICUS - Inquisitorial Henchman crossbow bolter conversion - Update 1

Update 1
What I have done:
  • I've changed the gun so that the crossbow string can be drawn back.
  • Bolts to his thigh
  • Holy nails in his head. I don't know how I feel about them but it is done now
  • Scroll to his waist

I think he will be a heretic that is being saved through repentance.
I plan on adding a hood to cover his back.
