BlackChapel Miniatures has revealed more information on the Inquisition faction that is going to be gracing their Fantasy collection soon. We saw some teasers yesterday but here’s a better look at what’s coming…
“The Inquisition is an independent corp within the Ecclesia and its functions are well known. Many times the Inquisition has to persecute and judge severely. Acolythus are the lowest link in the hierarchy of the Inquisition. They must provide support of all kinds to their superiors, from interrogations, trials, combat or liturgy.
As members of the Inquisition, they are supposed to have the most ardent faith and the strongest determination to eradicate heresy.”
Interestingly, now we’re seeing the models in more detail you can see that these are men wearing masks. If you want to know more about the White Skulls BlackChapel continued their exploration of background below…
“The company of the “White Skulls” as these southern mercenaries are commonly known, is composed of warriors devoted to the teachings of the mythical San Tizian. Skilled soldiers who carry with pride as a sign of their greatness the skulls of the hardest enemies defeated in combat. What many people find a macabre trophy these valued mercenaries wear it with pride, wearing as a mask, the bleached skulls of their prey.
In such a way anyone can see the skill of the soldier, the novices who have not claimed any life yet cover their shame by painting the face as a skull. These mercenaries are sold to the highest bidder, however, they feel a predilection for fighting under the banner of Faith.”
These warriors certainly look like they’ve summoned up all of the zeal that they can to bring retribution to the fore in battle. You could imagine the strange and macabre scene as these skull-masked individuals stalk the streets looking for heretics.
Is this a set of warriors you’re going to be looking to pick up?
