Interrogator-Chaplain on Bike: Done!

Fuckin' magnets. How do they work?

Baaaah. Whats up sheep? Juggalo Interrogator-Chaplain is here to party!

I'm quite pleased with how he came out. Last night I got distracted and spent about six hours on him. I think he's about as done as he's going to get. The mace and arms are from the Black Knights set, the banded shoulder pad is resin, and I think came with the librarian Sevrin Loth veterans. The right shoulder pad is... a skull. I don't know where it came from. maybe fantasy, maybe chaos marines. I don't even know how I got it. I bulked it out with some green stuff. The back pack came with one of the Dark Angels sprues (command squad or upgrade).

Insane Clown Posse references aside I actually really like the face-paint skull. I considered doing it in red, but thought white was more iconic, and provided better contrast with the warm tones of his skin and robes. Also it makes my Chaplain unique.

The next time I am at a tournament and the painting judge asks to see my best conversion, and I show him this guy, and he says "what's so special about him?" I'll resist the urge to jam a fistful of scatter dice down his throat. Instead I will calmly tell him "he's a chaplain bitch, look at that face paint. He's a totally custom model built from all different parts. I did such a good job on him you can't even tell he's special."

He'll say, "why didn't you paint his eyebrows?"

Then I will paint the walls with his blood.

(Note: The above conversation is fiction derived from an ACTUAL conversation with one of the painting judges at the NOVA two years ago. Something similar happened last year also: the judge was a fantasy guy, so he didn't know the difference between a chaplain, a librarian, and Marneus-fucking-Calgar. It didn't matter, they gave me a zero for my painting score anyway. Fuck you NOVA.)

One final note. If you don't get any of the Insane Clown Posse references above, look them up on the youtubes. Don't do it at work though, you might piss your pants laughing.


  1. not bad, man. only things I would have changed are adding the red on the bolters and filling the seam on the front fender with liquid green stuff before you primed. I did that to mine, and it makes a huge visual difference.

    1. Yeah, I probably should fix the seam, I'm just so damn lazy though... maybe I'll do it on my other Black Knights. Not a fan of red bolter shrouds though. I do them black on my marines, but Ravenwing have plenty of black already.

    2. Hmmm, I was just looking at some Ravenwing pics and I actually kinda like the red bolter shrouds on bikes. Maybe I'll give it a shot.
