More Half Price Books and Ebay Loot

  I wish I had some finished figures to show you, but I've been fooling around with a bunch of other things. I did do a couple colors here and there, but nothing worth it's own post.

  What you may find interesting are these books I found in a central Phoenix Half Price books, after a wild goose chase for lunch and shopping (it was our anniversary).


  This first book is printed by Image comics and has four stories that are in Frank Frazetta settings. My wife gave me crap for the ample buttocks on the cover. Buttocks notwithstanding, I almost bought a copy for Airbornegrove, but I figured he probably already had it.



I then found this tome on the shelves. It seemed serendipitous, as I had just found the Inquisimunda resources here. The intro and fluff are great, and there is really fantastic art and painted scenery and figures.


But, it's a totally different system from Warhammer and the figures are 54mm scale. So even at $12.99 it may not be worth it. I believe the whole game has been discontinued by GW. We'll see if i can get some use out of it.


The Gruntas I won off ebay arrived, and I was surprised to see an extra figure in the blister on the left. It had at some point been cut open and then taped together with masking tape. The state of the tape led me to believe that happened a very long time ago. So not sure if I have a bonus figure or am missing a boar. I think it's the former. The figures are a spearman and a crossbowman. Or rather Orcs.


And at the same time the last of the Marauder Giant Black Orcs arrived. So I now have all four.

Don't know how much I'll be posting. We have the next three days off from school so we're going to take the kids up North to Flagstaff and sight see. So I may have some Grand Canyon etc pictures to share.

  1. Nice loot mate! You can always give Inquisitor a go with different scale figs. There's a fairly healthy community of folks who play in 28mm I believe. Try Googling for "INQ28".

    1. Hi Millsy, thanks I'll take a look. I suspect it will languish like most of the rule sets I own. I need to change my habits and actually play some.

  2. As Michael says above, just use ordinary 40K figures (or similar) to play inquisitor. If nothing else, playing in the smaller scale makes storage and painting easier.

    1. Hi Roy. If I play it at all that is what I'll do. I may just mine the fluff and play regular Rogue Trader/ 40K/ Inquisimunda.

  3. As Michael says, Inquisitor should work just as well in 28mm, if you're interested enough to play it. After all, GW even made their own 28mm figures of an inquisitor and retinue (though not ostensibly for this game!) after the 54mm stuff didn't sell too well.

    1. Thanks Hugh, I did a brief search for Inquisitor models. I'll look again. Most of this fluff is new to me as I studiously avoided all things 40K up until recently.

  4. Can't help you with the Fantasy stuff Sean, but I always like a bargain whatever it is!

    1. Thanks Ray, it's hard to say no when it 50% or more off.
