Blanchitsu: My First Warband – Part 1

Posted by Bitzbox

Yes you are seeing this right. A blog post on our blog and it's not April Fool's day anymore. This is the start of a blog and video series all about Blanchitsu. What is Blanchitsu? Well it's essentially Inquisitorial warband creation for Warhammer 40,000. If you're familiar with the game Inquisitor then if you think of it in 28mm scale then you're on the right track. Miniatures are usually painted extra dark and grimy to get that John Blanche feel. Below is the first video in our series looking at Blanchitsu which will tell you more about it, where to find inspiration and also how to get started.

So now that you know a little more about Blanchitsu I want to show you guys my first warband. The first miniature in this warband is already painted. This miniature was originally built for a steampunk style Ad Mech army that I had planned a while back (I may reignite this project in the future).
He is built mainly from the Tech Priest Dominus kit but uses the head from the Shaking Sean miniature from a game called Smog.

Next up we have the two henchmen for the warband. This first miniature uses the head from a Skitarii Ruststalker, Genestealer Cult Neophyte Hybrid Arms, Empire Greatsword Legs, a Cadian Backpack and a Militarium Tempestus Scions Torso as well as a couple of extra little bits.

This second henchman also uses Genestealer Cult Neophyte Hybrid Arms and Empire Greatsword Legs. He uses a slightly different cadian backpack and also has a head from the Genestealer Cult Upgrade Sprue, a metal cowboy hat and a torso from the old Empire Militia set.

In part 2 we will look at some of the more weirder creations from this warband.
