I'm starting a Daemonhunters army and I was looking for a nice Daemonhunters Inquisitor model. Problem is, they are all quite "normal" and I want my army to be somewhat different from the regular forces out there in the galaxy.
So I was thinking about using a female to lead my force. To specify; I would convert a Witch Hunter Inquisitor model to represent a more Daemonhunter-esque Inquisitor.
My (for the moment) choice would be to convert THIS Witch Hunter Inquisitor. Chop off the hand weapon she is holding and replacing that one with a nice Hammer would be one of the first steps of course.
Now; my question would be: Is it possible (fluff-wise) to have a female lead a Daemonhunter army? -With grey knights and inducted Imperial Guard-
I don't have the Witch Hunter codex, so maybe that one states that only Witch Hunters have female forces?
Another question is; do you have other suggestions as to what models could be interesting for such a conversion? Other female models of course Also, weapon suggestions or decorative suggestions are welcome. (Oh and I do realize I will have to make some changes to the backpack to remove the "Fleur de Lyse" from it.

Well, I hate to use the Grey Knights book as an example, but there could definitely be a female inquisitor. I've never read anything saying that there are no women in the ordo Malleus, so you could basically do whatever you want. I hate the Witch Hunters model though, so I would use a regualar Inquisitor with a woman's head, and maybe greenstuff some other conversions.
Et imperator Invocato Diabolus Daemonica Exorcist!
There are a lot of female inquisitors.. Even though Malleus is the most 'macho' ordo, I don't see why you couldn't model one. There are more important attributes for an inquisitor than simply being big and beefy, after all. In fact, there is a female daemonhunter in the Inquisitor game system.. Here is her model (note, don't use it in 40k, or the scenario will be 'attack of the giant woman')
The model you suggest looks like a great starting point, though the armour is slightly Hereticus, with its medieval style. A hammer or force halberd would be a nice addition. Also, consider a psycannon.. a great game option, and also unique to the Ordo Malleus.
Oh.. and file off all the Fleur de Lys (spelling) patterns.

Dah...double post...my bad.
I know that I am not adding much, but I think everyone is spot on, and even though there are no female space marines, there are women have have risen to high ranks in the army and I don't see why inquisitor isn't one of the possible ranks they can attain. Have a good time, and I hope you do well on the model, there aren't enough cool female models out there and I would like to see more.
I'm thinking about the hair on the Witch Hunter Inquisitor and maybe I can cover things up with some sort of cape or hood?
Also, are there any good WFB (or others) models that are good for the retinue?

Nothing wrong with female DH Inquisitors, go for itOriginally Posted by Thardus
You might have a bit of trouble covering that particular model's hair with a cape or hood, if you try to do it without removing the hair she's going to end up looking like The Brain, plus she has the big inferno pistol which you'd need to remove. If you decide not to go with the Elvyra model then the SoB models make good female Inquisitor conversions, I used a Canoness as the base for my CC build Inquisitor and she looks pretty mean. Only thing to really steer clear of are models wearing the SoB helmet because it's pretty distinctive and bloody hard to Green Stuff anything onto; the small SoB insignias you can cover with green-stuff =][= symbols, purity seals and tomes, and as far as weapons go that's pretty much up to you, but stay clear of the Inferno pistols because we're not allowed to have those iirc. If you actually want to start chopping models up then a female DH Inquisitor in Terminator armour would be a pretty cool model ^^.
You might try the Celestine the Living Saint Model, maybe trim up the head a little, but the cape makes just about any model menacing. I used her cape on my Grand Master to nice effect.
Space Marines are the gateway drug
If everyone makes fun of West Virginia, who does West Virginia make fun of?
My favourite female inquisitor model is the 'eavy metal one in the back of the rulebook, it looks very unique. That one you linked though looks horrible, I'd highly recommend you don't go down that route.
However there's lot of female models with a bit of sawing and working and patching bolt weapons to you could make great Inquisitors from. It's always nice when someone is staring at your model trying to figure out what the base parts are. A few suitable examples:

Remember to let us know you it came out when your done, and post a pic of your model!
