So I am thinking of adding Inquisitor Valeria to my Grey Knights collection, but there is no model for her.

I was wondering if you guys might suggest a few different miniatures as possible counts as?

I had thought of using the GW inquisitor models, but the female ones are very ugly models. Here is a list of Infinity models that I am considering for Valeria:

The Custodier model would work nicely alright.

I couldn't agree more, but if you can, find a stockist in your own country to avoid paying for the model twice (that's how steep the shipping is with them).

Use third party......personally I use some of the anima tactics figs for any female inquisitors that show up when I'm GMing a DH game.

The infinity figs are way too high tech for 40k.....my Yujing and Haqqislam figs feel very out of place next to my 40k ones....

Look into reaper figs, they have a massive selection of good female sculpts

Those will look completely out of place, both because of the tech level and the scale.

A few contenders, bearing in mind I assume you'll want to convert.
My top five....

Mordheim Vampire Lady. (http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?catId=cat490051a&prodId=prod1120055)

Don't let the paint job put you off, could be a great starting point if you fancy making Valeria a "Lady Adventurer" type, going to battle in the fineries of polite society.


Isabella Von Carstein (http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?catId=cat500022a&prodId=prod1140291)

Again with the courtly appearance here. Probably a little harder to achieve than the other vampire on the list, but still worthy of a mention.

Bretonnian Damsel (http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?catId=cat440036a&prodId=prod780912)

A simple yet very attractive model because of the open way it's posed (the foot version), making weapon swaps and additional wargear easy to add.

Khalida (http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?catId=cat570032a&prodId=prod1190067a)

If you want your Valeria to have a particularly radical look to her. The skeletal portion of the face becomes bionic and with a few choice additions and subtractions (and an imaginative lick of paint) you've got a pretty unique looking Inquisitrix.

Lhamaean (http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?catId=cat440231a&prodId=prod1320006a)

Again for a More radical Val, this one will have spent some time hanging about with some vile Xenos and have aquired a few dress habits from them. A Head swap. appropriate equipment and a couple of aquillas and Roberta is your mother's sister.



++++EDIT.
Thinking about it, the Bretonnian Damsel could be fun because the Mounted model you have to buy with it could be used to make a version of her popping out of a cupola/hatch so you can easily represent which transport she's tootling about in.

I'm pretty sure Inquisitor Valeria first appeared in the Inquisition game... so you have a base to make your own conversion on.

Edit: Nevermind, I was thinking of her: http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?catId=cat490044a&prodId=prod1110197

I have the "Gabs" mini from RT (Female in Power Armour, with boltgun and sword). Still not the best fit, but she's a she and she's in PA. Use to use her as a 3rd ed "OM Inquisitor" in some of my my WH army because of the psyker symbol on her shoulder, but the current edition GK codex makes her weapon options a bit odd.

Just use the female inquisitor and do a head swap. You could grab pretty much any of the more attractive 40k female heads to replace her horrible one.
