Autorelictors are constructs which usually accompany a Inquisition warband, on longer duration crusades and missions to remote locations. Burdened by the bones of martyrs, as well as tomes of arcane lore, they serve as a mobile altar of the Imperial Cult. The cyborg body of a beast is possessed of a simple machine spirit, that is often very loyal to a certain Inquisitor… to the point of being nearly useless to anyone else. Autorelictors often are loaded up with extra ammunition and supplies. They can be used as a mobile reactor to power devices and recharge lasguns, and they are equipped with advanced auspexes as well.
Creating Autorelictor 0179
This one has been on my desk for awhile, happy to finally get back to posting! The horse body is from a Death corps of Krieg rider, the tail is (one of my favorite bits haha) from a dark eldar talos, and the neck is a bit from Nagash. The head is from the archmagos draykavac kit from Forgeworld.
I spent a lot of time painting this one, attempting some NMM technique as well as just a lot of freehand on the books and layering on the skin, and some light airbrushing to give a dusty feeling here and there. I had the idea at the end to use some thread on the wooden poles and create a sort of rigging. Think I will do more rigging in the future… it gives the same sort of grimdark feel of dark age tech mixed with advanced cyborgs and lasers and all that sci fi stuff.
Thanks for visiting! And more inquisition stuff is on the way!
