From the conversions that I've seen, the Coteaz model seems pretty flexible, especially now that it is in Finecast. I'd say a few simple conversions could make it unique (swapping arms and stuff). But if you're looking for something a bit tougher, the Rex model could probably double as a GK Grand Master. Although something tells me the scale might be a little off since Inquisitors might not have the same proportions as a Marine.
Agreed on Coteaz. I browsed the web and found several renditions of him as another Inquisitor, so perhaps he is the way to go. I can use the Deathwatch components I just received and alter him somewhat to give him the look of an Ordo Xenos Inquisitor or something.
Yeah Rex is unsual, in that his body was supposedly modified, so he looks as hulking as a Marine and his ornate power armor seems very Termie, so perhaps there is room for him as a GK Grand Master stand in or something...or perhaps a done up Deathwatch or Red Hunter Term.
Personally, I think a standard power armored Inquisitor would look cooler. I feel like the Red Hunter bodyguard should be a bit more...unique. Can you give each one of the staff weapons you made earlier?
This particular Red Hunter doesn't always act as a bodyguard to the Inquisitor. Since this is probably going to be some sort of radical Inquisitor, who has clearly crossed the Ordos to enlist GKs, Deathwatch and a Red Hunter; he'll not really need the body guard. He's more of a tracker for the group. I based his overall design off of an image I found of a Red Hunter, complete with the knife at his waist.
What I do agree on is that he needs a bit more oomph in the weapon department and I was thinking of going to route of a combi weapon. So do we know of any WIP images that showcase Combi-weapons? I'll have to check TheAmbits
thread because I feel he did something like that.
And while the Guardian Spears would do well with the bodyguard mentality, I don't want him to be relegated to that role, and I think I'd like to leave that to my Black Templars; although one GK has taken up the same weapon, but that's moreso related to their past.
So I am open to ideas for Combi-weapons. I gave him the plasma gun just to differentiate him from the bolter-toting Deathwatch and the melee focused GKs. What are the usual range of combi-weapons for Power armor marines?
