Inquisitor Verhoeven

Ordo Xenos Inquisitor Verhoeven

Ordo Xenos Inquisitor Verhoeven

This retro looking chap is a late eighties/early nineties GW inquisitor miniature that I picked up on Ebay a while back.  I painted the figure for use in skirmish games set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe (as discussed a little here). Continue reading
