Painted Orin Midwinter, Rogue Inquisitor

Here is Orin Midwinter, Rogue Inquisitor. He’s part of my Hordes Minions army (strictly speaking he’s actually a Mercenary and not a Minion but there is some cross-pollination), so apologies to any Warhammer 40K fans who expected either a Rogue Trader or an Inquisitor from that setting. I’ve tended to use Orin as sort of magical defense near my Warlock as he starts with some magic tokens that can be discarded to nullify spells cast at targets close to him. Otherwise he has a fairly standard lightning zap attack from his magical stick; most often I end of shooting my own Warbeasts in the back and letting the Electroleaps take care of any jamming infantry. Orin is one of the biggest victims of my inability to correctly judge enemy threat ranges as frequently ends up getting killed by something that he would have avoided by being millimetres further back from.

I loved painting Orin as he’s such a classic fantasy wizard trope with his flowing robes and fancy stick. He’d be quite nice in non-WarmaHordes settings as he would fit in almost any D&D game as a baddy (or a goody, I suppose, but he’s definitely a baddy in WarmaHordes).

Next on the painting table: Troll Basher.

  1. That’s a great almost fighting monk pose. I think it’s almost time for a group shot 😀.
