The Inquisition serves as the Imperium’s most powerful and clandestine organization, with its agents, the Inquisitors, acting as the final line of defense for both the Emperor and humanity. Inquisitors are unwavering in their mission and are authorized to employ any means necessary, no matter how extreme, to achieve their objectives. These agents are often equipped with a diverse array of weaponry and gear to prepare for any possible threat.
Some Inquisitors use unconventional armaments acquired from their defeated enemies, such as alien weapons or those possessed by daemons. However, others view such practices as heretical. Regardless of their allegiances or radical tendencies, all Inquisitors share a profound knowledge and dedication to the Emperor. They work tirelessly to eliminate any enemies of the Imperium by any means deemed necessary.

How to paint the Inquisitor with Inferno Pistol & Power Sword Set
- Step 1: Prime the Miniature
Apply a thin coat of primer to the Inquisitor miniature. Primer helps the paint adhere better and provides a smooth surface for painting. Choose either black or white primer based on your desired color scheme. For darker colors, use a black primer; for lighter colors, use a white primer.
- Step 2: Basecoat the Armor and Robes
Using a medium-sized brush, apply a basecoat of your chosen color to the armor and robes of the Inquisitor. For example, you could use Abaddon Black for the armor and Mephiston Red for the robes. Thin the paint slightly with water or a medium to achieve smoother coverage.
- Step 3: Layer the Armor and Robes
Switch to a smaller brush and apply a layer of a slightly lighter color to the armor and robes. This layering technique will add depth and highlights to the miniature. For example, you could use Eshin Grey for the armor and Pallid Wych Flesh for the robes.
- Step 4: Highlight the Armor and Robes
Using an even smaller brush, apply a highlight color to the most prominent edges and raised areas of the armor and robes. This step will further enhance the highlights and create a smooth transition. For example, you could use Dawnstone for the armor and White Scar for the robes.
- Step 5: Paint the Inferno Pistol
Start by applying a basecoat of a metallic color like Leadbelcher to the Inferno Pistol. Then, use a wash like Nuln Oil to shade the recesses and create depth. Finally, apply a highlight color like Stormhost Silver to the edges and raised areas to add metallic shine.
- Step 6: Paint the Power Sword
For the Power Sword, begin with a basecoat of a vibrant color like Kantor Blue or Caliban Green. Then, use a wash like Drakenhof Nightshade or Biel-Tan Green to shade the recesses. Finally, apply a highlight color like Teclis Blue or Moot Green to the edges of the sword to create a glowing effect.
- Step 7: Detail the Accessories and Small Parts
The Inquisitor miniature may have additional accessories and small parts. Use appropriate colors for metallic parts, such as Leadbelcher or Balthasar Gold. Use other colors to pick out details, such as Mephiston Red for a gemstone or Averland Sunset for a belt.
- Step 8: Add Finishing Touches
To complete the painting process, add any finishing touches to the Inquisitor miniature. Paint the eyes using a small brush and a bright color like Yriel Yellow or Flash Gitz Yellow. Add any additional details like freehand designs, symbols, or insignias if desired. Use a fine detail brush and steady hands for these final touches.
