Inquisitor Titus Roth

Titus Roth is a puritan Inquisitor of the Ordo Xenos and the focus of my narrative 40K force. I was lucky enough to pick up a metal Gideon Lorr miniature on eBay that I’ll use to represent Titus on the tabletop. I find painting metal minis more challenging than plastic or resin, but this dude is probably one of the better sculpts I’ve had a crack at. I took a bit of inspiration from Idris Elba’s Gunslinger in the Dark Tower movie and opted for a black duster and hat combo.

The character of Titus Roth actually goes way back to a Dark Heresy RPG campaign where my character of the same name was a low-level psyker acolyte. He was more of a Blade Runner though – recruited after spending time ‘retiring’ unsanctioned psykers in the Underhive. In those days he was quite attached to his revolver/stub gun and knew a couple of magic tricks. In the final game of the campaign he found himself too close to a climactic heretic-related explosion. It left him clinging to the last thread of his life but he survived. Just. I’m thankful to our GM as I suspect Titus was spared the real result of the secret dice roll to determine his fate.

I like the idea that Titus got a bionic arm to replace the one lost in that explosion, and he continued to serve the Emperor and eventually became an Inquisitor himself. He’s clearly still quite attached to a pistol but it’s had quite an upgrade. His bionic arm will be a counts-as power maul in-game – it’s punchy, but not as punchy as a power fist.

Titus will be supported by a small group of acolytes (coming soon) and a detachment of the 103rd Deltic Void Dragons. Astropathic communications have ceased from a mining world in the Badab sector, so I really need to crack on with some support for Inquisitor Roth so he can investigate.
