Having finished the Inquisitor for the Invitational, I started working on a Imperial Guardsmen to accompany him. I wanted the guardsmen to have a similar reserved tone like the inquisitor, fitting a scene where both are part of a tense audience with a rival inquisitor, one that had just turned towards confrontation. To accomplish this sentiment, I knew that I needed the model to be drawing a weapon, preferably with a tranquil confidence. Interestingly, like the inquisitor, I ended up finding just the model that I was searching for in the Death Korp line of models, as well. The Quartermaster, with his skeletal vistage, calmly drawing a las pistol to perform his grim task fit all my criteria for the model. And since it too was designed by Simon Egan, it was scaled appropriately to the inquisitor.
