Unboxing - Triumvirate of the Imperium - Part One

I recently succumbed to that hobby dilemma of buying something you'll probably never use because it's really amazing looking and then ending up wanting to use it because it's so amazing looking...the culprit in this case was the 'Triumvirate of the Imperium' box set...

"A truly inspiring presence, the Triumvirate of the Imperium bolster the might of their allies even as they effortlessly obliterate the enemies of the Imperium that stand in their way. Waves of telepathic power from Inquisitor Greyfax steady the nerves and enhance the aim of the warriors around her, even as Archmagos Cawl’s augmentative data-shunts aid the war machines of the Imperium while stymieing those of the foe. At the head of the triumvirate fight Saint Celestine and her Germinae Superia, calling down the fury of the Emperor through ringing war hymns."

I'm going to cover each of the three characters contained within in their own individual features but don't worry...I'm probably only going to do pictures of the box in this first one...

The box is actually nicely presented with a nicely decorated internal section, an art print and a quite elaborate set of instructions that also includes character stats for the box contents...

Inquisitor Greyfax
'Eye of the Emperor'
Clad in ornate power armour, she is a figure wreathed in shadow and fear, armed with master-crafted power sword and condemnor boltgun. She carries psyk-out grenades and wears the Psyocculum – the Eye of the Emperor.
Inquisitor Greyfax - Sprue
Here's pictures of both sides of the sprue for Inquisitor Greyfax

Inquisitor Greyfax - Assembled
The model is an incredibly detailed and characterful one and wouldn't actually look out of place in a number of none Games Workshop steampunk and dieselpunk skirmish games...

Instructions and Stats
As some-one who assembles models from a lot of different companies ranges I have to say that instructions with clear diagrams, numbers that match with parts on the sprue and actual views of the rear of the model were particularly enjoyable...

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.


  1. I am SO close to buying this myself. Yes it's 80 bucks... but look at that Inquisitor! And the new Saint is very nice too. Plus there's always the possibility I might actually play a GW game at some point, and Inquisition is the faction closest to my heart.

    I wouldn't know where to start with that Mechanicum monstrosity though.

    1. I had decided that I was having nothing more to do with Warhammer 40K until this box set came along...now I'm seriously considering starting a Mechanicum army...or at least doing a small force of them...
