I think we'll call him doctor too. Don't know why, it just seems really fitting for this model - slightly disturbing and ready to apply his knowledge of human physiology in Q&A sessions.
Quite happy with the way he turned out.

Have started the painting of Nikolai Anatoly Pajari, wondering a bit if he's getting too red - but seeing the pics here instead of RL I don't worry too much. I do think he'll be nicknamed The Red something though, perhaps Duke or Interrogater. Looking forward to getting him finished.
Holy are the days this time of year - leaving us all with some good hobby time. Hence Double Tab was finished.
Perhaps not the most exiting paintjob, but I figured I'd go with something that would be fitting for a sniper - and that would also keep him in line with the rest of the retinue. So the red has been dialed somewhat back and the brown and greys have taken over. I quite like how he ended up looking.
Though I have had several people noting their concern for the safety hazard and breach of employees safety regulations I still decided to add a few candles to the promethium tank - I'm sure everything will be alright.......
Also, from the very good suggestion from Brassaxe of the Spacewolf community, I have tried a different approach to the candle on the Disciple, making it possible to make it even smaller - still could only fit one though. It's made from some thin electrical wire with a bit of the metalwire it self twisted into a flame like shape. White/wood glue was then added. Perfect.
So if you want to sell promethium you better have a place to store or those drops you siphon from wrecks and puddles. Of cause those retrieved product bits are not always the cleanest, so you'll need a small refinery too.
Think I'll add a few candles to this one too, but apart from that I think it's pretty much done.
Experimented with a candle for the Disciple - looks better irl, doesn't photograph very well, I think I'll keep it and see what it looks like painted. Also finished my Acolyte, Nikolai Anatoly Pajari. Schooled by Rodrigo Menéndez de Márques, he has all the right traits to become a stellar Inquisitor, his rather unforgiving personae is already feared among the Heretics.
Sneaking into the bell-tower Double Tap could overlook the entire section of the town. Shortly after a wave of single shots fired rapidly sounded over the battlefield. " In position - you can advance freely" he sniggered over the comm-link.
As mentioned previously I have been working on some rules for skirmishing Inquisimunda style. There has been some interest so I might as well share. We never played any skirmish games in this setting and the main cause for this compilation of rules was to have a very short set of rules - two pages here actually. Please bear in mind that the rules were made for some personal gaming and will most likely be easy to exploit, if winning is the sole purpose of your gaming. The rules are a mixup of rules from Mordheim, Necromunda, Inquisimunda, both original and Yak tribe, and 1 Page Kill team. So far the only contain the Inquisition and Chaos covens, cause that's what we'll use, we use the warbands from Yak Tribe's Inqusimunda though if you want to have ago at some other ones. Any comments and suggestions most welcome - also on the name!
....well this unlucky individual has. Unlucky as he might have been, he still answers to the nick Double Tap. Usually is dead on spot.
Actually this might be used in a game in some not to distant future, hence I have considered mounting on a different base - but he just looks absolutely perfect on those stairs, and since I mostly paint for the building and painting I think I'll leave him on this. My mate is also not concerned about such things, as base decor as we (though very rarely) usually play for the fun of it. It will also be our first venture into Inquisimunda - and I really hope we can get something going as years ago Mordheim was the greatest game I ever played. As we both had grown a bit tired of the endless pages of rules in 40K - and many other games as well for the matter, a rulesset which is a mash up of Onepage Kill Team, Necromunda, Inquisimunda (Yak tribe) and Mordheim has been manufactured. Managing to get all the actual game rules into 2 pages, and then leaving all special rules to the specific relevant areas. In this way, we can read all the rules in 15 minutes, learn our warband and weapon specific rules and then leave it up to the rules junkies to read more if they want to.
