The Joy of Inq28

If your not that fussed about small painted figures, or distopian sci-fantasy, look away now.

Over the last few years a creative movement has sprung up amongst miniature converters and painters. Inspired by the premise the classic Inquisitor 40k game, and the art of John Blanche, Inq28 is about exploring the depth and texture of the Warhammer 40,000 universe by creating unquie character models. Inspired by the jaw dropping work that's out there I have been doing a bit of character hacking of my own. Witness the results: 


  1. The Eisenhorn figure lips great. It's also a great use of a Storm cast figure, but I must say the Assassin/AdMech mash up is by far my favorite. The passing on the base assassin figure is really menacing.

    1. *looks rather than lips.

    2. Thanks! I really enjoyed doing the Exiled Assassin. It was going to be a much closer homage to John Blanche's Berzerker Assassin drawing from the Inquisitor sketch book, but in the building it became somthing else.

  2. Great paintwork on the psyker (particularly like the robe), and the other two figures look interesting as well.

  3. An excellent group of models! It is great to see you too are enthralled by the potential of Inq28. No miracles just men (and women!)!

  4. Late to the party. But just wanted to say how much I like these three models.

    Also wanted to mention how much I enjoyed Resurrection. Thanks 👍

Alan Bligh Remembered

Alan Bligh - 1974 to 2017 This is not something I ever wanted to write.   Alan Bligh died on the 26th of May 2017 after a brief fight with cancer.   I met Alan in 2003. I was on the edge of deciding that a career in academia was not for me, he looking for something to do after going through university as a mature student. We both answered adverts for part time mail order staff to work at Games Workshop. They employed us both, and I got both a job that lasted a couple of years, and a once in a lifetime friendship. Now, facing the prospect of the future without him, and seeing the impact that he has had on people, made me want to tell those not as lucky as me what he was like. Alan had a fierce intelligence, boundless creativity, and a will to put them to use. It’s fairly common to find people who want to write, or design games. Lots of people have lots of ideas and some of them might even think about doing something with them, but mostly those people only get as far as

What are the Horusian Wars?

'So you're doing a book on Inquisitors…' 'Yup.' 'Cool, but what is this Horusian War thing?' What indeed. Prompted  by a few short stories I did last year, questions like this keep coming up. Which is great, because at the back of all authors' skulls lurks the dread that we have decided to tell a story that no one will be interested in. But, thankfully, you guys are intrigued, and the questions have made me think that I should give some kind of answer on what the Horusian Wars are. So here I am, not with one answer, but, of course, with several. Answer 1: The Horusian Wars is my next 'thing'. By 'thing', I mean the topic of most of my writing for Black Library at the moment (apart from the Horus Heresy, and no, I haven't forgotten Ahriman). At the core of the Horusian Wars is a series of novels. The first book is done, and was announced at Black Library Live last November
